Re: Flea Medication

Hi , there is also a new one that can be gotten from your vet, it is called Vectra 3D, seems to be working in cases where frontline is not. I am leary of it because it is new on the market for pets but so far I have only heard that it works well. I work at a vet's office. We are not carrying the adv...

Re: Need help!

Hi, From working at a vet's , the major thing is finding it and cleaning it so you don't end up with an infection that can make matters much worse. If it is a cut on the paw we use some homemade booties or you can use a sock to protect the foot while it heals and keeps it clean. Just velcro or tape ...

Re: Neo-Predef powder

Hi , it is safe to use but if she licks it she might drool alot. So try to keep her from licking at it. It has a numbing effect which helps with pain but does make dogs drool if they get it in their mouth, which is part of the reason it is a prescription. It does work on open hot spots to help them ...

Re: Any healthy biscuits out there?

Same store we buy Evo from also has some Mother Nature and Old Mother Hubbard but they do both have wheat flour. Ours like them and they get the evo treats too. All seem to be pretty good for them. Haven't had any allergic reactions and Shandi is allergic to almost everything I think. :lol:

Re: Need alternatives to Rimadyl.....

Hi, Shandi is on Tramadol for her hip pain. My vet will only use the Rimadyl for extreme circumstances and only for a few days because it is hard of the body. We also use a glucosamine. I like the idea of the DGP , I plan to look into it. Good luck with Chi Ching. So cute.

I am thinking maybe there are different brands, my husky with hypothyroid is on L-Throxine. He was a little tubby, cranky and his hair was falling out on the poor guy's tail and back legs. It all has grown back on the meds. Good luck with your baby.

So sorry about your furbaby. As a foster I have helped dogs thru distemper but none so young. Our thoughts are with you. My best advice is very close eye , keep warm , food if they can hold it down for strength. Kiwani seems to have some of the greatest knowledge and advice.

We just had a raccoon to dog outbreak here and several of the dogs bitten didn't have vaccines. So had to be put down. Maybe those instances are on the rise and that is causing it. Folks thinking they can do without the vaccine since it is every 3 years now in most places.
