    Anyone familiar with rashes?

    Prior to using any type of topical cortosteroid or other medications intended for humans, I'd highly suggest that you take her in to see the vet. The medicated ointments and creams that were mentioned are pH balanced for us, but not for dogs so please do be careful when considering use of any of...

    Uuuggghh tummy troubles

    Have you recently changed her food or would you happen to know if she may have eaten something that doesn't agree with her? I would suggest giving her some plain boiled chicken and rice (no seasonings/oil/etc) until her stomach calms down. If you're still extremely worried or if her stomach...

    House Breaking a Dog w/o being mean??

    Weird skin issue... anyone experience it before?

    My dog (Dre) has similar flakes that run throughout the sides of his body, but it's not that extreme. I took him in and the vet checked his thyroid as well as ran blood tests.
