    So what do I need to do....

    It used to be wonderful, I was really disappointed after being gone for a couple of years that no one is here anymore. Maybe look on Facebook for some of the old people, and others who look like they would contribute, and invite them to the forum?

    Is grain free bad?

    I have done quite a bit of research now, I have decided not to change their food, as the taurine is in meat, not vegetables, and they have a lot of meat in the food they are eating now.

    Is grain free bad?

    I recently read an article that stated that feeding grain free food long term might cause heart problems, because it causes deficiency of taurine? Should I be feeding it? My grain free is not fancy, just diamond Nutra Nuggets beef and pea. I have two dogs allergic to grass, we got by for a...

    Does anyone know about DGP joint supplement?

    I have seen some really great reviews on Animal BioSciences DGP, and also some that leave me wondering if it is safe for dogs. If anyone knows anything about it, I would love to read your comments.

    Need advice on Food and other things to treat yeast infection

    Thank you all, I found some grain free in our little feed store, I am going to start with that and acidophalus until I can get to the city. The vet says the lesions between her toes are from grass seed, she is wrong, I have been checking their feet twice a day since before the seed started to...

    Need advice on Food and other things to treat yeast infection

    Thanks, Barb04, I am going to check with my feed store today and see what they have along this line, if that doesn't work I'll have to try the pet stores in the city. I really need to get her on a better diet.

    Need advice on Food and other things to treat yeast infection

    Can you explain the limited ingredient diet, novel proteins and carbs? And would Pet tabs be an appropriate supplement for a meat diet?

    Need advice on Food and other things to treat yeast infection

    Ok, I will do it now, I don't have any raw vinegar, but I have vinegar until I next go the city, there is no grocery in our little town. Can I save the solution and use it a few times? Do I need to dry her feet after use?

    Need advice on Food and other things to treat yeast infection

    Lady is almost 13, she has a history of allergies and itching and for the past couple of years I have occasionally seen her scooting that I suspected was not caused by worms. Now she has sores between her toes, and a couple of weeks ago a bad ear infection that did clear up with treatment for...

    How do I get a perfect recall?

    Thanks, everyone. I have a tritronics collar that I got for Rita because she was endangering herself, (we live with cougars). But I'm not going to use it if I don't have to. I'll make her some liver treats, and if that's not foolproof, try the long line. We are working her on tracking, but...

    How do I get a perfect recall?

    Brandy is really good about coming when called- most of the time. The problem I am having is that every once in a while she will stop and look when I call, but then either go on about what she is doing, or even run farther off. This doesn't happen on a regular basis, maybe less than once a...

    Dog hind leg problem

    Thanks everyone, she hasn't done it very much the last 3 days, hopefully it will correct itself. Still, if anyone else has input, I'd love to hear it.:)

    Dog hind leg problem

    Thanks, I may have to do that. She was showing a little stiffness, so I started her on Ester C, which seems to have helped a lot. The back leg thing is new, and I thought maybe someone had seen a similar problem in a dog.

    Dog hind leg problem

    Lady is a 10 year old Yellow Lab/ Golden Retriever mix. The last 3 days I have noticed that when she is going downhill, her hind legs seem to not work properly, she sits almost involuntarily. Then she will get up and go off like nothing happened. If the hill is steep it may happen again, and...
