  1. Itchy Smelly Dog

    Dog Health Questions
    Once upon a time my dog had perfect skin & coat. I had rescued him from a high kill animal shelter, and from his personality I assumed he was probably kept in a cage (indoors -- he was unsure of what rain was) and was bred for backyard breeding and more than likely was a backyard bred puppy...

    Attention All New Members
    Since I have to post on here before I can post anywhere else, I figured I might as well ask while I can and start the conversation going. I have a Bichon Frise. When we first bought him about 13 years ago he would always have a problem going outside, on the grass. We found out that he had an...

    I've read all the threads here about brown stains on dogs -- tear stains, stains on the mouth and paws. None of these threads are helpful to my situation though. I have a white pitbull mix. She is on excellent grain-free food (Back to Basics). She is very well taken care of -- regular baths...

    Dog Health Questions
    My 2 year old Golden has been getting a lot of thick, dark ear wax, I think, because of swimming. I also read that this can happen because of ear mites. The vet diagnosed yeast. My question is, is there a good way to maintain ear health for long eared breeds that like to swim? Can anyone...

    Dog Health Questions
    Hello. My shitzu has a problem and I'm hoping some of you fine people can help me help her. I adopted Tatertot a little over a year ago. She was in pretty bad shape when I got her and she's come a long way, but she's still not where she should be. She's 5 years old, spayed, and vaccinated. I'm...

    Dog Health Questions
    Hi, for a couple of years now my Cocker spaniel has been struggling with skin issues. He's had sensitive skin ever since, but up to now hasn't recovered from bald spots, waxy crusty skin, skin odor, severe itching and black scales on his tummy and throat.
