Re: My Jazz-Man

Love from my Trooper, to Jazz-Man - His pictures just want you to reach out and hug him! Was looking up skin, allergies on forum, and here you were. Trooper also had a severe reaction to his rabies/distemper shot, his fur clumped out at the 2 injection sites, weakened areas so continued from there. ...

Re: who uses what to treat hot spots?,,,

With ongoing skin, fur issues, Trooper is taking natural supplements, like salmon oil, flax seed oil for omega's, kelp powder and evening primrose mixed in with pure pumpkin. He gobbles it up at breakfast. Allergens are out there, this tends to help counter the reality. All good items for even us fo...

A clean pup LOL - my Trooper won't even get on the couch - by the sounds of it - thank goodness! He likes the coolest floor he can find - leaves a wet spot there when licking done but not much to wipe up there :)

Re: Is my Chow chow a pure breed or not?

Been a few more months - has the ear perked up? The coloring and size are natural - my Chow Trooper is now 4 yrs. and he weighs in at 48-52 lbs. fluctuating at times. He is on the smaller end of scale and his predecessor Bandit was around the 50 lb. mark too. Not sure on the spotty tongue - could st...

Re: Chow's Tail (help)

Someone else on the site - had similar experiences - was advised to check the *Censored Word* sacs - could be causing discomfort - a vet would need to 'express' them if you were unable or needed to learn how. Just a thought. I once had Trooper do this but he was found to be in a 'low mood' and it so...

Re: Any suggestions?

Hello - Trooper is content to sleep when I am away - but seems to like chewing on raw hides the longest. Have you tried small childrens 'stuffies' Trooper took to a small woolly lamp - a babies stuffy - he carries around as his 'baby'. I would also check those paws - could be an allergy? Good luck!

Trooper also has kinky/curly fur under his chin - and totally because he is a sloppy drinker. You are right - just brush it out. Trooper is 13 months today.

Hi, Kiwani - I just remembered - eggs are 'chicken' & possibly the reason I havn't given them too often to Trooper - if allergy & that I changed him to Lamb only. Comments?
