Whimpering at night

I need help, and yes, I am planning on taking his to the vet this week. I have a 10 year old chow named Archie who has recently (last 1-2 months) started uncontrollably whimpering at night, and only at night. I don't think he even realizes he's doing it sometimes. At first we thought it was just ask...

Re: stinky chin

We have the same situation with our Chow who is 6.5 and it seems there is no real solution. We keep a towel near his water bowl and rub his neck dry after he drinks (he loves it and looks forward to it now). We also have his neck hair shaved down when he gets groomed to minimize.

Having trouble with walking

Archie is my 5.5 year old Chow and we are having some difficulty walking him the last 2 months or so. What happens is that we will put him on leash, go out outside and everything will be fine for about 2 minutes. Then he just stops, for no apparent reason (nothing I can see). And he just refuses to ...

Limping Chow

Hi everyone, I have an almost 5 year old male Chow Chow named Archie. About 3 years ago, he tore a ligament in his back left knee and had to have TPLO surgery. He recovered beautifully and has had zero problems since. Then, yesterday, he started limping, keeping pressure off his front left leg - so ...
