Re: Thoughts - dehydrated foods

<t>I feed Honest Kitchen, about once a week. It's the grain portion of the diet I feed. I've fed different blends -- Verve and a couple of others -- for about a year now. FWIW, my Shelties love it; but then, they are not exactly tough critics.<br/> <br/> When I feed it, I rehydrate it with water and...

Re: What are the things your dog can't live without and why?

<t>Shiri could not live without tennis balls (or Orbee balls, which we recently discovered); Sundance could not live without airplanes and pigeons to chase; and Pippi could not live without some sort of mental challenge, or in the absence of that, her Buster cube.<br/> <br/> H'mmm, I just read that ...

Re: A Question about SafeHeart Dosage

Kathleen -- yes, especially Shelties! Giant powdered Sheltie donuts! Ground pumpkin seeds -- I think I first came across that in Juliette de Bairacli Levy's book, The Herbal Handbook for the Dog and Cat. That is a fabulous book; Juliette was an Englishwoman who lived on Cyprus much of her life and r...

Wow, they are heroes! So are you -- I'm so glad the dog was pulled out in time. Very scary.

Re: A Question about SafeHeart Dosage

That's a good food -- never say never, but I'd be surprised if she turns out to be prone to getting intestinal worms.

However, I have been surprised by things even more unlikely in the past! LOL! Good luck.

Re: A Question about SafeHeart Dosage

<t>H'mmm. Well, what food are you feeding her? Some of the better foods that don't contain a lot of cereal grains don't provide a good intestinal enviroment for worms, and also there are supplements you can use that will make the gut inhospitable to worms ... ground pumpkin seeds are great for that....

Re: We have weave poles!

<t>Maybe I'll try making wires, even though I am incredibly inept at anything that requires tools!<br/> <br/> The weaves are the last thing that I need to tighten up with Shiri, my 4-year old Sheltie who is my agility dog. She had a lengthy teeter issue (that was largely the result of a trainer issu...

Re: A Question about SafeHeart Dosage

<t>You're looking to use the full dose of Interceptor to kill intestinal worms, right, not heartworms? I mean, it will of course kill heartworm microfilarae (however that's spelled) too, but the lower dose will as well. So the higher dose you want to use to take care of hookworm, whipworm, roundworm...

Re: strange changes in behaviour

<t>I don't know much about cognitive disorder, but is one of the remedies or supplements salmon oil? My dogs' chiropractor told me that salmon oil and vitamin E are very important for dogs with c.d. or senility, and I have read a lot about the importance of fats to brain function. Just a thought?</t>

Re: We have weave poles!

<t>Do you have guide wires? I have a set of weaves that somebody swapped me (for a $20 bag of salmon treats -- she won the weaves in a raffle and didn't want them) but I need guide wires for the first and last pole. I wonder where I can get some-- anyone know?<br/> <br/> Spring training for dogs-- d...
