  1. Bland treat alternatives when battling diarrhea?

    Dog Food Forum
    Bland treat alternatives* when battling diarrhea? We just finished our first round of Panacur for Giardia. Benji's stools were looking better for a few days when I was feeding him chicken with broth to get him to take his medicine. After we finished, I started to add regular kibble back in to...
  2. Dog has bumps on his underbody

    Dog Health Questions
    I bought a pitbull almost two years ago, and I've seen bumps show up periodically under his body, on his chest and neck and on his inner legs. When I bought the dog I knew this was a specific problem, I had to sign a contract. "We*the Breeder (Poulsen’s Painted Pitbulls) feel you the Buyer...
  3. Loose Stool in Puppy

    Dog Health Questions
    Hey all, my puppy, Maggie, is about 4 months and she's a pitbull-border collie mix. I've noticed recently - although I don't think this is a recent problem as I had vaguely noticed it before - that her stool is very soft and smells horrible. Her gas has the same smell, and both are a horrible...
  4. Maintenance after weight loss

    Dog Food Forum
    Earlier this summer Levi weighed in at 16.1 lbs. His ideal weight is between 14.5 - 15 lbs. After a few months of trial and error I've finally on a plan that's working well for him and yesterday he weighed in at around 15.3-15.4 so I'm quite happy. Up until the attempted weight loss he use to...
  5. Housebreaking a 12 year old Chihuahua-mix? Is it impossible?

    Dog Training Forum
    I think housebreaking (if he needed it) a blind, deaf, confused 16 year old mutt would be impossible but not a stubborn old 12 year old female Chihuahua Dachsund mix... She's just a Lil Princess who refuses to get her Paws wet, who barks at the neighbor's dogs while we DO have that perfect...
  6. Tips for weight loss?

    Dog Food Forum
    So our adopted dog was spoiled rotten in the first few months with us, and she put on about 10 pounds (she now weighs 65 and should be under 60). We've cut back on her food but the poor thing is now STARVING all the time. We've upped her exercise, too, and that helped a bit, but not enough...
  7. "Underfed" dog gaining weight?

    Dog Food Forum
    At Levi's last vet visit he weighed in at 14.6 lbs. Ideally he shouldn't be more than 13. Only about 3 months prior he was a little over 12. But i'm happy with him being anywhere between 12-13. Determined to help him lose about 2 lbs, I've been strict about how much food he gets, almost...
  8. The People Food Diet

    Dog Food Forum
    I met a dog that was on what his owners called "The People Food Diet". He only ate what his people ate. I went to a friends house for dinner and was surprised when they gave their dog a heaping bowl of penne with vodka sauce (topped with grated romano of course). They got very defensive when I...
  9. One with history of Crystals, one with allergies!

    Dog Health Questions
    Hi there! I have two small dogs who have separate problems, but I'm hoping to find a food that I can try to get them both on. Our first dog ("Goose", male/neutered, Chihuahua Mix, 7 years), had a bladder infection/struvite crystals in his urine about 3.5-4 years ago. He was given antibiotics...

  11. Recommended Food for a Clumber Spaniel?

    Dog Food Forum
    My Clumber is 7 years old, low activity, but loves to play around the house with her toys. Spends most of the day napping. She has very mild hip dysplasia. It's not uncomfortable for her, but she cannot jump, and I would like for her to be on a food that is good for her joints. With the recent...

  14. raw food diet--shedding

    Dog Food Forum
    Hey, I'm new to this raw food thing, and have only been doing it for a few months now (I've kind of lost track of when I started). Basically I switched because I was spending at least 150$ per month feeding kibble and my two little dogs didn't even want to eat it. I read about raw food and saw...

    Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum and I'm writing to you all in utter heartbreak. I met my sweet little shihpoo at 3 months and found out at 4 months that he was in kidney failure. We were already madly in love at the point so there is no way I was giving up. We changed his diet to K/D...

    Dog Health Questions
    Hello everybody! This is actually my very first post so I'm super new here. The main reason why I finally joined a dog forum is because of the cancer hemangiosarcoma my dog was diagnosed with. Sorry if my english is bad, it's not my first language. My 11 year old dog Picolo was diagnosed...
