    Welcome, Pal! Looking forward to seeing Piglet.
  3. Sick dog and no vet access

    Dog Health Questions
    That's nothing more than rationalizing and conveniently excusing yourself for doing nothing, and you should be ashamed. I understand that you are not.
  4. Sick dog and no vet access

    Dog Health Questions
    But next time you or your child get a fever you'll be taking or administering a Tylenol, right? If this was just a passing thing, it would have been passed by now. It is dragging on and getting worse and it's lucky the dog has held on this far. Every single time I have taken a dog into a...
  5. Sick dog and no vet access

    Dog Health Questions
    The vet not giving her an antiinflammatory and saying that the fever could help is absolutely idiotic. The first thing my vets have done without question is give both antibiotics and fever medication. A high fever can damage the brain. Her not eating is 99% sure due to the fever as an...
  6. 1 Year old Male Dog always cries and wants to go Outside

    General Dog Forum
    Just another question- Has anything changed recently in the food he receives? Also, how much animal protein does he get?
  7. 1 Year old Male Dog always cries and wants to go Outside

    General Dog Forum
    Hi Malleshm- This is just an idea. Male dogs don't go into "heat". They are happy to mate any time. But female dogs go into heat, and if a female dog near your house had gone into heat, it will drive every male nearby crazy because they want to mate with her. I don't know how they know, but...
  8. Sick dog and no vet access

    Dog Health Questions
    If the vet has the injectable antibiotic, they probably also have an injectable anti-inflammatory / fever reducer or some pills at the right dose. I'm not sure why the vet didn't think of this (although it also slipped my mind earlier), as it has been normal procedure when one of my dogs has...
  9. Sick dog and no vet access

    Dog Health Questions
    Okay, I believe there is some overlap between antibiotics used for people and antibiotics used for dogs, but we really need someone who knows about it and can tell the much smaller dose to give to a dog. Of course don't just use a random people antibiotic at people size doses. Dog Forum...
  10. Sick dog and no vet access

    Dog Health Questions
    Hi Silibili- I'm not a vet, but just from past personal experience it seems pretty certain she has a fever (hot/lethargic/decreased appetite) and needs a course of antibiotics. Not just (silly) worm medication. Can you ask the vet specifically for a full course of a general antibiotic? Or if...
  11. Remind me it is only a phase!

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Just a thought- What are you giving him as an alternative to chew on? Could it be he just doesn't care for it? All my puppies preferred hard, compressed raw hide chews (not the wrapped/tied kind) to my hands.
  12. Fish Oil

    Dog Food Forum
    Hee-hee, my partner is the same way. In fact, coffee makes him sleepy. :-o Those EPA/DHA amounts just came from a random site that was in a google search: http://chriskresser.com/the-fish-vs-fish-oil-smackdown/ Unfortunately they didn't mention data for other kinds of fish.
  13. Fish Oil

    Dog Food Forum
    Well, I found this: a 6 oz. portion of wild salmon contains 883 mg of EPA and 1,111 mg of DHA But the daily 1,000 mg fish oil softgel that I take, from a reputable company and with higher concentrations that some other brands has: 300 mg EPA 200 mg DHA
  14. Fish Oil

    Dog Food Forum
    What I've read is that you want something not too high on the food chain. The reason tuna and salmon have more mercury is the fish is alive for a long time and eats other fish. Sardines and mackeral are supposed to be safer. I'm particularly sensitive to food. The feeling I get from...
  15. Fish Oil

    Dog Food Forum
    Not doubting it's possible, but are you guys sure about this? Because I think I remember being blown away once seeing how much more omega 3s were actually in a good serving of fish compared to my supposedly high concentrate capsules. I could be remembering wrong. Also, don't forget that if...
  16. Hey fellow dog lovers

    Attention All New Members
    Hi Ananthu- In the beginning it usually gets weirder and more difficult than people initially expect. Try to stay calm, for both you and your puppy.
  17. Ruff Love by Susan Garrett

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    It's very clear that no love whatsoever is actually involved. Not even respect for another living creature. Just a catchy, euphemistic name to mask what amounts to highly systematic dog abuse.
  18. Does having pest-treated dogs deter bedbugs?

    General Dog Forum
    Ok, gross question, but I always wondered. I live in the hot sticky tropics, and while I am not a slob, my home is not always immaculate either. I hear bedbugs are not easy to avoid over the years in the tropics, but I've never gotten them. My dogs all receive monthly ivermectin injections...
  19. My dog is going on a hunger strike

    Dog Food Forum
    Personally if I offer my dogs something new and they do not like it, I move on. Maybe I'll offer it again later, but I won't deprive my dogs of the healthy food they like and are accustomed to. They try some new things, they adopt some of them. Every dog is different, just like every person...
  20. Dog in a rental car?

    General Dog Forum
    With the cool doors? I'm picturing those doors opening and Indy jumping out to 007 theme music.
