    Senior dog issues..

    I recently had a senior terrier begin to act odd. She would get stuck behind furniture, pace, circle, push her head into corners, and ignore me when I called her to come in from outside. She wandered around like she was lost. I first attributed it to vision/hearing loss, but during the...

    Kindey problem, not sure what to do...suggestion

    I have had a lot of experience with chronic renal failure. It is the bane of senior dogs. However, I have had very good results by feeding a home cooked diet low in sodium and phosphorus. I do not feed the low protein prescription diets. In fact, I feed moderate protein, but I make sure that...

    HELP these seniors!!

    Don't count on me... I am not getting any takers. All of my contacts have the same problem as me; we are all full and we do not have the resources to take in any additional animals until something opens up. Adoptions have dropped and they just are not turning dogs as quickly as they have in...

    I'm torn both ways on this one...

    Well, I am guilty of helping the old, the sick and the badly behaved. In fact, those are prerequisites for entry into my sanctuary. When I began volunteering in shelters, I was amazed at how many animals fell through the cracks...dogs that had been dedicated companions for their entire lives...

    OH. MY. GOD. Kayotaaa!!

    I am so sorry for your loss. I would bleach (30:1 ratio) all of the runs and let it sit for at least 15 minutes before rinsing. I would also bleach all of the common areas. Make sure all volunteers wash their hands before handling different dogs and be sure to wash door knobs and other things...

    Photos of the dogs from N. Carolina

    I initially went out for the 2 chi's, but I couldn't turn my back on these guys...they were not highly adoptable, so their days were numbered, too. "They are cute! Did you get them from a rescue I assume?" No, they came to a rescue...they were in a animal control facility. "The white...

    Dog had a Seizure. Should I put him to sleep? New and need tons of help, please

    I agree with the advice you have been given. I do a lot of work with senior dogs that have various illnesses. There are basically two schools of thought that vets seem to have when treating old dogs...some vets suggest procedures that border on heroics even when they know that a cure is not...
