Re: My Compassionate DH

oh what started out as a nice story has turned into something just horrible. I agree, I hope karma gets back at these monsters!

I am sorry your DH has to see these poor doggies like that, but glad that he is willing to help out!

Re: Luxating Patellas

<t>My girl Mindy has had luxating patellas in both back legs since she was a puppy. I give her powdered shark cartilage from Seapet - she's small (about 12 lbs), so a 1/2 tsp daily is all she needs.<br/> <br/> I also give both my girls a daily dose of concentrated fish oil from seapet along with 200...

Re: Proctor and Gamble acquiring Natura pet foods?

It's sickening.

I just picked up a fresh bag of EVO dry, and now I am thinking I might return it. I've also been thinking about their trustworthiness since I am sure this deal has been in the works for awhile.

Re: Coccidia - shouldn't be able to pass from species to species

<t>Just a quick update. I went in for Lexi's annual vet visit and her normal Vet agreed that it was possible for rabbit coccidia to pass through her body into her poop, and it would have caused a positive test.<br/> <br/> The more I think about it, the more it makes sense to me, especially for dogs ...

<t>It's not just my Vet, I found various online sources that stated the same thing about it not being passed to different species.<br/> <br/> Did Havana have symptoms?
