  1. post-tick protocol

    Dog Health Questions
    OK so I have only found a tick one other time on any of my dogs mannnnnny years ago and it was still normal tick size. Well today I found an ENGORGED tick on my poor boys back, I came home from work and thought he sprouted a large wart overnight at first! Yuuuuck. Googled how to remove it...
  2. Dogs flying in baggage under plane

    General Dog Forum
    In case anyone cared to know, we all made it safe and sound!!! Want to know what's funny? My male left his blanket and kennel alone on both plane rides. Today I leave him for a mere 2 hours and he rips up the blanket and chewed up the plastic near the door!! Either the plane rides scared him...
  3. Dogs flying in baggage under plane

    General Dog Forum
    Yeah a few people told me to just ge it over with and do all the flights in one day, and I can definitely see the pros in that. However with my female's susceptibility to bloat, my male's general anxiousness, and my emotional turmoil I decided I couldn't wait 10 or more hours to know they were...
  4. Dogs flying in baggage under plane

    General Dog Forum
    Well, we made our leg from Alaska to Seattle all safe!! The Alaska airport was small and the flight was just 3 hours. I wish that was the final destination... I can't believe I have to do this ALL over again in a couple days for our final flight to the east coast... And this time not only will...
  5. Dogs flying in baggage under plane

    General Dog Forum
    Yeah I tried them out and they seem to make them a little sleepy but not much. Question... Many sites say when you board your plane to ask to speak to the pilot to make sure that they know there are pets in baggage so they make sure it's pressurized and heated... Makes sense, but speaking to...

    What kind of calming chews did you give your dog, DaySleepers? I got these treats yesterday called NaturVet Quiet Moments. It has Melatonin in them, as well as a few other calming herbs. Has anyone used this treats before, or given their dogs Melatonin? Is Melatonin safe, or too sedating? Does...

    Alaska airlines. I've been bad and been reading pet incident reports... So many healthy dogs arrive unresponsive.. It's making me nauseous

    How long would it take hypothermia to kick in when it's below zero? -15? I'm worried the plane will be delayed and they'll be out there freezing :(
  9. Dogs flying in baggage under plane

    General Dog Forum
    Hi all... Sorry I didn't respond back until now. Figuring out everything for the move. I know I try to tell myself thousands of animals fly every year and are fine... I just want my 2 to be included in that. I can tell you this, I will never EVER fly them ever again after this, and never put...
  10. Dogs flying in baggage under plane

    General Dog Forum
    Hi everyone... I need some advice/info ANYTHING. I'm in a panic... I never wanted to fly my dogs. Have driven them every chance I can. They are now both nearly 10. I am now being pretty much forced to fly them for the first time ever... From Alaska to East coast. I have to get out of here short...
  11. Ultrasound/sedation questions

    Dog Health Questions
    Yeah I forgot about the shaving part... If they use an electric shaver he'd probably be terrified of the noise. I know my female would gladly lay on her side fully conscious and relax as your labs do, I just know my male who needs the procedure wouldn't. I just have a feeling when I call I'll...
  12. Ultrasound/sedation questions

    Dog Health Questions
    So, my male has had lipomas in the past, but in the last few months has grown one that is internal and larger (maybe the size of a small fist). He can suck it in and out at times. We saw our new vet last week and just by feeling how soft it is he believes it is a lipoma within the abdominal...
  13. Normal adjustment or separation anxiety?

    Dog Rescue Forum
    Oh, also a nice long walk before being left alone helps tire them out and encourage sleep! So hopefully they'll nap in their crates :)
  14. Normal adjustment or separation anxiety?

    Dog Rescue Forum
    It's only been a week, the adjustment period will definitely be much longer. They are learning their boundaries and getting used to a new place. And crate training can be arduous at first! my dogs will jump and scratch at a door if they are just locked in a room, which I sometimes do if I need...
  15. Dog Doesn't Have Separation Anxiety - But I Do!

    General Dog Forum
    Haha yes that sounds quite a bit like me, but for different reasons. I worry more about them having a medical emergency when I am away on vacation or even at work. Or them getting out and running away under the care of someone else. I've had a few scares that have led me to develop this bit of...
  16. Help me pick a vet

    Dog Health Questions
    Thanks everyone!!! I decided to go with the suggestion of making an appointment for one dog at one vet, and the other dog at the other vet. I still remain so indecisive so this was a great idea to get a feel for both practices and prevent me from procrastinating further. First appointment is for...
  17. Help me pick a vet

    Dog Health Questions
    Thanks for everyones input :) Yeah the philosophies of the vet is most important, but I can't know that yet without meeting them, so that's why I said "based on this initial criteria." Basically, my boy is due for a rabies shot and they both need their check ups, so was trying to figure out...
  18. How to stop a dog from gorging

    General Dog Forum
    How much are you feeding her per meal? At a year old she could still have a few more small growth spurts, and not to mention high youthful metabolism! I know my pit/lab/who knows what else mix didn't need a reduction in his food amount until he was about 3 years old and I noticed he lost that...
  19. Help me pick a vet

    Dog Health Questions
    A few months ago I moved, and it's time to pick my pups' new vet. I can't decide between 2... They each have their pros and cons. Help me pick which one!! I feel like as my dogs are now nearly seniors and have had various emergencies and health issues I put more thought into picking a vet...
  20. Vet assistants job

    General Dog Forum
    Thank you for your insight :) I think under the guidance of others, like the vet or vet techs helping me deal with such cases would help my fear in these circumstances, I guess I just don't know how much would be required of me to handle alone with aggressive cases... I think a lot of it is the...
