    Nexgard

    So we normally don't give our dogs flea preventive pills. We tried Comfortis with Luke some time ago only because he's so allergic to flea bites that summers were horrible for him. The Comfortis made him violently ill and so we stopped. His last vet visit the vet recommended Nexgard. He said...

    Rectal bleeding/bloody stool

    I haven't been to boxerworld in some time but needed to talk about this. I got home today to a house that looked like a crime scene and my poor Lilly sitting on the couch in shock, literally. There were blood pools in four or five places with other spots of vomiting. I immediately took her to...

    Vommiting

    Our Luke is sick. He began vomiting about last Thursday and we saw the vet last Friday. They took some X-rays and determined there was no obstruction or nothing lodged anywhere. Gave hima shot for the nausea and some bland dog food to help. I thought he was getting better or seemed to be...

    Leather Furniture

    So we're thinking about buying leather furniture to replace the sectional we have now. I'm wondering how leather would withstand the roughness of our dogs. They don't chew the furniture but they play and are allowed to sleep or nap on them. So my concern is would the leather tear easily...

    Incessant barking

    Hi guys. I haven't posted in a while. My daughter got a French bulldog, Diesel, and he is now about six months old. We got him when he was about 10 weeks old. He gets along great with our boxers and they've had to teach him some manners, but they are good together. I have a question about...

    Excessive Drooling

    So a couple of weeks ago we took Lilly on vacation with us. We were in the Texas hill country and she got to play in the Guadalupe River which she loved. Since then, she's been acting strange and we have a vet appointment later today. She is drooling alot more than normal. She usually only...

    Dominance Issues....

    Lilly is about two and a half years old. She is incredibly intelligent and as goofey as it sounds, I often tell people she's brilliant. It seems lately when someone is giving her attention, and one of the other dogs walks over, she will growl and even snap at the dog who is coming in to share...

    Luke's visit to the vet....

    So it was time for Luke to get a check up. We haven’t found a vet we’re crazy about so we were trying a new clinic. I was a little nervous about having to take him by myself, since hubby had to work. Luke weighs 70 lbs and he’s a nervous boy. I was afraid something might spook him and I’d...

    Anal Glands???

    Hi guys. O.K. This is kind of weird, but here goes. I got home from work today and the house smelled foul. My daughter who was home most of the day, said she had been unable to find the source of the smell. She said she thought it was Luke. I smelled Luke and I couldn't smell it on him ...

    Lilly is sick...

    My Lilly had diareah over the weekend. Late last night she was better, her poo looked "normal". I called the vet and made an appt for tomorrow. She is eating, drinking water, and playing, but I can tell she still doesn't feel good. Something in her little eyes. I'm sorry, if this will gross...

    Happy 2nd Birthday Lilly!!

    Yesterday was Lilly's 2nd birthday. We took a ride to Petsmart where she got some new toys, and then drove by Dairy Queen and got her an ice cream cone. She loved it. I was intending a much bigger to do, but we were pressed for time. Our house gets pretty loud and hectic sometimes with...

    What a great girl.

    O.K. this is kind of long and probably disorganized, but with the school year starting up this week I was really nervous. Since we got Luke, Lilly has gotten mischevious and when left alone for a while, would tear things up. Nothing huge or important, just counter surfing and getting things...

    Embarrassing while on walks....

    Not sure where to post this question but....Luke will be nine months in a couple of weeks and he has this habit of pooping while on walks. Doesn't matter where we are, on a side walk or on the street, he just squats and poops. We always take him out to potty before going on a walk and he...

    Lilly at the beach...

    We took Lilly and Luke to the beach yesterday and LillyBear had everyone around us laughing. It's not her first trip to the beach and she's done this before, but we go into the water and once she's decided that this is deep enough, she grabs her leash with her mouth and starts pulling me back...

    Luke has allergies...

    I took Luke to the vet on Monday and was told his shedding and rash was due to allergies. The vet gave us a steroid and an antibiotic. He said the anti-biotic has anti-inflamatory properties and would help him as well. Well, I gave him one dose of both and poor baby was just not himself...

    Hi guys. We are planning a vacation in Durango Co this August and I would love to take Lilly. We're staying in a cabin by Electra Lake and I was wondering if anyone is familiar with this area and can give me any info on what places in this area are doggie friendly. The person we're renting...

    Something's wrong with her eyes....

    Lilly woke up with really red eyes this morning. Not so much the white of her eyes being red as her bottom eye lid it looks like is drooping and we see quite a bit of the red membrane, if that's what it is or called. Anyway, it looks pretty bad. I thought maybe it was a reaction to something...

    Problems walking both at once.....

    Hi guys. We got our second boxer baby in November and Luke is now four months old. He walks great, except when we come across a barking dog. He becomes frightened and begins to pull in any direction away from him. Lilly did that as a pup as well and eventually got over it. I just continued...
