Re: eggs

Can you feed them too many eggs?? Consider that in the *natural* world, egg laying season would be linked to the circadian rhythms and length of daylight, just as a Chow's coat turnover is linked to the circadian rhythms and length of daylight. Eggs would be abundant at the right time to help build...

Re: I need some advice and help

In addition, check to see if 'propyl gallate' is listed as an ingredient in any treat or supplement you give. That preservative is known to act as an itch trigger. That's why it's important to use the human grade versions of the 3V caps (pharmaceutical grade omega-3 fish oils). Also, if anything you...

Re: Not shedding

I just wondered what age most chows loose their baby coats? Bramble has a small tuft of new coarse hair like a mohican in front of her tail and a bit on the tummy but it is taking its time coming out. No mass shedding as others have mentioned. She has also shown no sign of coming on heat at seven m...

Re: Which food to choose?

At the moment I am feeding Burns minibites for a seven month old with a very little cooked fish or mince to damp it down and encourage Bramble to eat it. The only Burns minibites I've found so far, are low protein and formulated for puppies and adult Toy breeds. This low protein formula may possibl...

Re: Throwing up 3 weeks after surgery

I took him to the vet last week, she thought he was getting too much activity. We're trying to keep him still, but you know how hard that is. This morning he got sick 3 times! I slipped in it once, and ended up having to go to the chiropractor because I messed my back all up. I don't want him to su...
