Re: Resource Guarding

I'm very sorry about this, Sherri. Whatever it was that the rescue person sensed when the original owners relinquished him, I hope that they never get another dog.

Re: Not sure what to do - ailing best friend

I'm sorry to hear that Caesar is ailing and causing so much concern. I won't repeat what others have said so well already, and the only thing I'd elaborate on is dogs withdrawing. I've noticed that some ailing or older dogs will withdraw or remove themselves from the fray of household activities whe...

Re: Cancer clinical trial

I'm glad you are seeing some positive results out of this despite the side effects! At least you have ways to minimize those, and I completely understand your decision to not place that burden on those caring for him in your absence.

Re: Acupuncture expectations

I've been thinking that Benson is slowly getting better and didn't want to jinx his recovery by posting too soon. He's still off at times after sleeping for longer periods, but the lameness is noticeably less than before. I've been pampering him and trying my best to keep him calm so that he doesn't...

Re: Slippery elm

I gave slippery elm to ChiChi when we suspected she may have had ulcers from long-term Doxycycline use and her autoimmune issue, and it helped some with her appetite and willingness to eat for a while. I don't think it masks anything but rather is soothing for things like that and may aid in healing...

Re: Got Stay? May 2018 Training Challenge

Well, my new training challenge ended up as different than the stay. Hope it's ok to post that here. I ended up teaching Benson to go down a ramp from kitchen to garage instead of using the steps. The top of the ramp is flush with the top step. Previous to this, I had him willing to go down if he wa...

Re: Acupuncture expectations

Lame. The dog is still off, and the treatments are lame! It is not helping; if anything, it made him much worse. I have another session scheduled for next week that I am cancelling! He's always excited and a little whiny going in the car, but he is usually calmed down by the time we arrive and is co...

Re: Acupuncture expectations

I took a video of him limping last week that I took with me to the appointments. I couldn't remember how to include it here, so it is on facebook, limited to ODO friends. I don't need sad face from his breeder on there.

Re: Acupuncture expectations

Thank you! That makes a lot of sense to me. He didn't show any sign of pain in the back or spine when either vet examined him. If he's in some pain, it is slight enough to cause the continued limping but not enough to curb his enthusiasm for treats or a handout after dinner when he will still spin a...

Re: Acupuncture expectations

Gah, did I choose the wrong treatment?! The reason I chose acupuncture was because the first vet was on the fence between the two options and felt that acupuncture might help more if it was some soft tissue injury. She said the only response she got was a little shiver when she was touching and feel...

Acupuncture expectations

The backstory is that Benson has been limping on the right front, and I've improved everything I could find that would add to that problem. He had dry, cracked pads from the diuretics that are looking good again thanks to lanolin. Long-ish nails have been shortened, could be better and I'll continue...

My birthday card

I wanted to share my birthday card here. To interpret, this is in our backyard (L to R): two plastic chairs, Benson peeing on a chair leg, a very Tall-Paul, tree with gazing ball under it, and a deer on the outside of the fence. :lol:

Re: Got Stay? May 2018 Training Challenge

I would love to teach this and have never been successful at getting any sort of prolonged stay, and I've never been successful at keeping any of the dogs out of the kitchen at any time food is involved. I'd be satisfied to have a good prolonged stay with me in sight at this point.

He's got to take the 200 mg tabs. Sixty tabs = $145. It is what it is. :thumbdown: My vet is excellent about sending me to pharmacies or even online when the price is significantly different, so I didn't check around. Looking now, online, I don't see any lower prices for the 200 mg tabs. He's on a ...

Re: Heartworm treatment

Definitely price shop for the doxycycline. ChiChi was on it during the time it was taken off the market a few years ago and the prices went crazy. Human pharmacies may or may not be less expensive. I see 100 mg tablets for $0.69 at Allivet, and either $19 or $24 for a bottle of 50 pills at Valley Ve...

Re: Heartworm treatment

I'm so sorry about this and that Row will be going through the treatment. We all know he couldn't be in better hands as you treat this. I would want to get rid of the infestation sooner than later too, but don't know enough about slow kill vs more aggressive treatment.
