Re: Limping :(

Did he offer an option of a brace? I know that some ODO dogs have had good luck with that.

Are you connected with Claire on FB? She went through cruciate tears with her previous Weims and used to be a regular poster on the CCL yahoo group. She was a great source of info.

Re: Grain Free Foods and Heart Disease?

Interesting article, thanks for that link!

I can't wrap my head around someone that educated honestly believing that highly processed kibble with low quality ingredients is the best choice because it's made by a big company, or that reading ingredient labels is bad. That's just crazy talk!

Re: Grain Free Foods and Heart Disease?

I thought Dr. Dodds perspective was a good one - we need to consider why we make the feeding choices we do and remember that there's a LOT more research to be done on this. I think we all need to remember her final point: "As we keep coming back to, every dog is an individual, and we believe that in...

Re: Not sure what to do - ailing best friend

You're not the odd woman out regarding going to any length. It depends on the dog and the situation, of course, but I don't see myself ever going to the lengths your bf does with his dog. That wouldn't be practical for me and for most dogs I've had over my life I don't think it would make them happy...

Fish based foods always smell awful to me. Weird, because I love fish, but fish dog food is gross smelling.

Re: Hi All! - What's going on with Colt

I have a dog in my Senior program that has chronic pancreatitis. We finally switched him to prescription food because the episodes were becoming more frequent and lasting longer, and it's helped. You know I fought that one as long as I could, but if that's what it takes to help him, then that's what...

Re: I want...maybe.

A friend of mine lost her Springer a few months ago and is posting field spaniel puppy pics all over IG, so I'm currently smitten with them. My very first birthday present was a cocker, so I'll always have a soft spot for them, but I've seen so many messed up cockers that I'm a bit gun shy. Not sure...

Oh Emily, I'm sad to read this. I remember when Oliver was losing muscle in his hind end, to the point the he couldn't stand up long enough to eat his meals, rugs and runners all over the place to help his traction, and the increased sleep. If he doesn't seem to be in any pain, I'd spend some time t...

Re: Resource Guarding

I haven't heard from her for a week or two but at last report he was still guarding, but in many cases they have been able to head it off before he turns Cujo, so maybe it's improving? Their house is more puppy proof than mine, so he's got less access to "treasures", but he will still guard things l...

Re: Resource Guarding

I've noted the resource guarding in his diary and hinted at the seriousness of it but I think you're right and I need to make it clearer. The foster director and adoption director are aware and agree he needs to never go to a home with kids but that doesn't mean all the adoption counsellors who make...

Re: Resource Guarding

After spending more time with him and really looking at what's happening with a less emotional eye, it seems like he gets guardy and aggressive whenever he has something that he thinks will be taken away. Toys that I give him are fine. Food that he's given is fine. Anything he finds himself, though,...

Yes, he's guarded space a couple of times, but not frequently. Mostly he guards things he finds. Not things that he knows are his, but things he expects will be taken away from him. I sent Jane's notes to the foster coordinator and hopefully she will be able to work with him. He's going to her house...
