  1. How to care for her last days - old dog

    Dog Health Questions
    Thank you for your kind replies. She took a turn for the worse, and after a terrible night, I've just returned from the vet, who euthanized her. She went very gently, in my arms, and Hanksmom, the vet allowed me to stay with her for as long as I wanted to. We took her body with us and buried...
  2. How to care for her last days - old dog

    Dog Health Questions
    I need some advice on how to keep my old dog comfortable while I wait to see whether she can recover from her present condition, or has to be euthanized. Here are the details: My white shepherd Anna is 13 and has suddenly gone from being an active dog looking and behaving like a pup to being...
  3. How quickly can food allergy symptoms occur?

    Dog Food Forum
    Well - I've gone back to the raw diet I had her on before. Luckily the store let me return the food so it was not too expensive a mistake. After two days of the old diet she's nibbling a lot less, but still a bit itchy. No more nibbling of legs, just of tummy. I suppose a flare-up takes a...

    Thanks Taquitos - I think you are right. Will just have to find a way around my fridge/freezer problems. I suspect she might be reacting to rice - as that is the only ingredient I can find that is in both the Eukanuba, and the food she used to eat.

    Oh, poor pups! Thanks for the reply. I think I'm going to stop at once. Her reaction is not that severe, but it can't be good for her.
  6. How quickly can food allergy symptoms occur?

    Dog Food Forum
    I've been trying to figure out what triggers my White Shepherd's itchy skin. I already know she is allergic to fleas, but I had her on a raw food venison diet for a month and a half. I Intended to do the recommended 2 months for the test but for practical reasons (no access to freezer for a...
  7. Dog food allergy: am I doing this right?

    Dog Food Forum
    Thanks Taquitos - I'm definitely going to look into that. My problem is that some years ago I tried that and I had a bad experience with (in my ignorance) buying meat that was off, and then having to deal with the aftermath (Dog vomit! Inlaid carpet! Rented accommodation! Angry landlord!)...
  8. Dog food allergy: am I doing this right?

    Dog Food Forum
    Thanks, that confirms my plan. The venison this place provides has some veggies in it, so I'm stuck with that (instead of just venison) but I'll stay away from the chicken etc. I'm going to feed her just this and nothing else - no treats or chewies either. How accurate are those allergy...
  9. Dog food allergy: am I doing this right?

    Dog Food Forum
    I suspect my dog is allergic to the food I've been giving her and am trying her on a raw diet of venison and veggies for 8 weeks to see if she improves. Does that sound right? Here is the tldr version: She is a white shepherd (10 years old) who has has skin, ear and urinary tract problems all...
  10. Avoiding a dog fight. Did I do the right thing?

    General Dog Forum
    Poop bags! I love it. In this case both my hands were occupied with controlling my own dogs, but I guess I should be more prepared - We do have leash laws but I'm not sure how to report this. I dont know who the guy is - also, its so common I dont think the police take it seriously at all.
  11. Avoiding a dog fight. Did I do the right thing?

    General Dog Forum
    I have two large dogs, a white shepherd and white shepherd cross. This afternoon I walked with them on leash to a park near us that I dont usually go to. I say on leash because around here it's not that unusual for people to have their dogs off leash. I went into the park, keeping my dogs on...
  12. Caught in the act! The mystery of the hairy sofa solved.

    General Dog Forum
    That might work...but if she can stand chair legs, maybe nubby plastic would just align her chakras or something :) She's a White Shepherd - some people call them "White Swiss Shepherds". I see yours has also got the radar dish ears. Very cute dog you got there!

    General Dog Forum
    Ah! I thought it was something like that. I probably need to make myself a little coat out of that, to keep all the white hair off my clothes...

    General Dog Forum
    What is a plastic painter? :) Yes, this dog is a force of nature. Her technique is to act as though she is doing something completely normal. Sometimes she just hops up next to me on the sofa and curls up. Her body language is so confident that sometimes she actually gets away with it for a...

    Just had to share these pictures. My husband puts chairs on our sofa every night to stop Anna from lying on it. I got up late last night and discovered her lying with her head and front paws hanging off the front of the sofa. Deep, deep asleep. :) love the look on her face. She must get...
