Today we went for preop tests and he has protein in his urine and high blood pressure!!! Not sure wha...

Re: Chow Life changes

Shiloh and Loki are in very similar situations. We think Loki is 13. Along with the arthritis and hing leg issues, we are facing more serious liver disease. I am hoping he is a candidate for surgery. He gets tested this afternoon. He has a growth on his liver and in order to determine what it is, su...

Re: Is a Chow Chow right for me and my situation?

Of course, chows personality will differ from dog to dog, but our chows are very protective and great watch dogs. As long as we welcome someone onto our home, they are fine. They would never allow someone in the home uninvited. Loki ignores most other dogs, but is fierce with cats! He gets along gre...

Re: New Rescue Chow Mix-- Need Help!

We have rescued two chows...Loki, a pure chow and Frisco, a chow Newfoundland mix. We have had them both for over ten years. Having rescued other breeds in the past, I find that chows take a but more time to adjust to their surroundings. Frisco was so insecure he followed us everywhere and would wai...

Re: Chow Life changes

Your situation sounds so similar to what we are going through with Loki, who is also 13. Ask your vet about injections of adequan. Loki gets it every few weeks and I think it helps. This, along with the gabapentin and tramadol have helped. Unfortunately, he has other issues associated with his age. ...

Re: Suddenly aggressive

Thanks for your reply. I was fortunate to get an appointment at my Vet yesterday. You were right..the Vet thinks he has severe arthritis in his hip. Also, they are treating him for Lyme. He has had Lyme in the past so they had to do a more sophisticated blood test and we won't get those results unti...

Good luck. Although we have two chows they both came to us around the age of two so I am a bit envious that you have a puppy. Nothing cuter than a chow puppy!

Frisco's weird behavior!!!

We rescued Frisco about ten years ago. He is a black chow/Newfoundland mix. Very gentle soul. We also have Loki, a chow, rescued about 11 years ago. We got Frisco when he was about two years old. Not sure of his past but he did have many fears. Lately he has had this behavior we can't quite figure o...

Eleven years ago my son found a homeless chow. He was in bad shape. Inspite of my son's calls to rescue groups, no help I came and he took the dog to an emergency vet before taking him to his apartment. No owner was found and my son became very attached to this chow he called Loki. Loki, in turn, im...
