i met a dog owner today, her dog is not a chow, who told me she used betadine on her dog who had lots of hot spots. it is cheap to buy at the drugstore, she applied it to the hot spots twice a day until they cleared up and they never came back.

hi, welcome to the board. my suggestion is for dealing with agressive behavior toward people entering your home. when someone is about to come over, but before they enter your home, put your chow on leash and tie the leash at least ten feet from the front door, but within sight of the door. when the...

hi, you can order wolfking online, right from their website, and they give you a discount. they also offer sample size bags of all their kibble as a freebie if you order $20 (i'm not sure about the amount, but it's in the $20 range)...plus free shipping. it's not a bad deal.

you can ask for a "titer" (sp?) test before giving any vaccines. this determines if the immunity from the last vaccine is still in place, so you don't need to immunize as often.

hi,
mr. pookieface is 37.5 lbs. at 1 1/2 years old. he seems to have stopped growing. vet said he looked great at his last check up. still, when he's wet you can see he's very lean, although he looks quite tubby because of all the fur.

regarding the kongs, if you fill them with a few treats then plug up the hole with peanut butter, then freeze, it works very well.

hi, it might be good to do the vaccines on a separate visit from the surgery so he doesn't get zapped with too many things at once.
