  1. Heat blisters on dog's feet

    Dog Health Questions
    So I'm in South Carolina where it has been pretty darn hot lately (see below) and I've avoided taking my doggies for walks while the sun's out. Unfortunately this past weekend my pitbull had a vet appointment and I couldn't avoid taking him out during the heat of the day and as much as I tried...
  2. Dog Vomiting up Water..

    Dog Health Questions
    Hi all, I have an eight-year-old Alaskan Malamute who is currently having a bit of an issue. She isn't spayed and is currently in heat. Since we took over caring for her last year, she's been through the same thing twice, and often times being in heat makes her drink more and therefore urinate...
  3. Help! Going crazy with training/comforting while puppy is in heat

    General Dog Forum
    Perrin went into heat earlier than I expected (she is 6 months, so I guess that isn't actually early). I decided to let her have two heats or reach 1.5 years old (whichever came first) before spaying her, and the vet agreed. I am super responsible (okay, maybe it is more appropriate to say...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hi everyone, My Mini American Eskimo girl has gone into her heat cycle quite early. The other day while she was playing and rolling onto her back, we noticed that there was dried blood around the vulva. Upon further inspection we noticed the vulva was slightly swollen.

  8. To Laube or not to Laube?

    Dog Grooming Forum
    So! To all the dog groomers out there, how do you feel about Laube brand clippers? I've been using Andis brand clippers for years, and seriously dislike Wahl (except for my little Wahl Bravura cordless, perfect for detail work) I've stuck with Andis super 2 speed for a few years and they are...
  9. Is my dog sick? Or is this nothing?

    Dog Health Questions
    So, I can be a worry wart with my two dogs mainly since they can't tell me exactly when something is wrong so I apologize if this is absolutely nothing to worry about. I live in LA and it has been excessively hot this past week so I assume this is the cause of at least majority of their...

    My 12 week old lab mix left two half dollar sized puddles during puppy school last week and the trainer said that he was overhydrated. I have a full bowl of water out for my older dog who has learned to self-regulate, but the puppy drinks like he's just finished a crawl through the desert. I...

    So we have a Frenchie, no central-air, and an all-carpet apartment. Needless to say, I am looking for ideas as to how to keep the pup cool during the summer season. Creative ideas, products, etc, anything that will help us keep him from getting overheated. Also, I have seen cooling beds...
  13. Is my boxer a hermaphrodite?

    Dog Health Questions
    Ok...so the hermaphrodite things is a little extreme. But she is 17 mo. old and hasn't gone into heat. We planned on spaying, but she had what the vet called chronic puppy vaginitis. We used so many medications, and nothing worked. So he suggested we wait until she goes into heat the first...
