Re: Louie's Story. RIP "Monkey* 10/06-12/12

I am so very sorry for your loss. Beautifully said Pam. It is so very hard when our furkids leave us for the rainbow bridge. It feels like your heart has been ripped apart. Remember that Louie knew how much you loved him and just keep remembering the joy he gave your life. Before my MiniMe went to t...

MiniMe 5 yrs/ Golden 1 yr

Cinnamon it has been 5 years (well actually the date was the 29th) since you went to the rainbow bridge. “MiniMe” it seems like a life time ago since I last held you. I remember the day that I saw you at the shelter I knew then that you stole my heart. When I brought your Daddy back to meet you I ma...

Re: I'm upset....

After Humphrey's surgery I would suggest checking into a Vet that does acupuncture. I have had it done on two of my Chows in the past and had wonderful results. My Teddy had arthritis first in his front elbows then down the back of his spine. I knew he wouldn't put up with them putting the needles i...

Re: Which Chow food is best for my dog.....???

Definetly use one of the better brands. We also use Nutro Natural Choice the lamb and rice formula. We mix a heaping fork full of the same formula of the can into the dry kibble.

Re: Spay yes or no?

There are so many Chows out there that are already looking for homes. I would definetly say get her spayed. It also helps prevent them from getting some cancer later on. Plus like it was already mention they can also get pyometra which can come on quickly when they go in heat. We had 2 of our rescue...

Re: Not sure where this goes

I would also suggest getting her thyroid levels tested. My Brandon had thyroid problems and we found out because we took him in for fur loss. Then a few years later he started lossing his fur again. He was on medicine and with the pills his levels were fine so we had him tested for allergys and he e...

Re: my chow chow bit me and I had to get stitches

For your Chow's pain ask your Vet about Gabapenton. I have used it for 2 of my guys. Also if you have a Vet in the area that does acupuncture, that also is another good way to go.
