    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...

    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

    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...

    My dog has a cough

    Rita is almost 14, gets lots of exercise and seems extremely healthy, especially for an old dog. She has developed a cough that seems the worst when she has been lying down for 2-3 hours. When I exercise her, the cough goes away until she rests or sleeps for a while. She does not seem sick at...

    Is Rimadyl OK for my dog? Vet question.

    My vet for 25 years died, and not knowing where else to go, I took Amber to his old office for a sprained hock. The lady who examined her prescribed Rimadyl twice a day, at first for a week, and then for 2 more weeks. It really helped her, and now she seems normal except for a small swelling...

    Why is my dog eating so much grass?

    I have seen this twice with my dogs: She begs to go outside like it's and emergency, and then frantically (sp?) eats grass like it's the last thing she'll ever do. Rita had a spell of this several years ago for several days. I wormed her and the problem stopped. I can't say for sure that...

    Resistance to frontline? Vet question.

    My neighbor's cocker spaniel has been given Advantage or Frontline monthly for a lot of her life. She has a real flea problem, they are constantly treating their whole place for fleas. Advantage and Frontline do not work any more. Her understanding from the vet is that the dog, not the fleas...
