    Diarrhea/Tummy Upset & RMBs

    Just saw this post and hoping they are ok by now. However, if this happens again I usually add some no fat plain yogurt or can pumpkin to their normal diet for the day. This usually does the trick before you totally change their diet. If those dont work I switch to the 24hrs of no food, then the...

    Stomach/Stool Issues - Please Help!

    It is so scary to deal with them but I can tell you from 7 years experience with Steeler that once you find what works for his system it will be like night and day. Steeler has suffered from Colitis and Pancreatits his entire life. We have been through several foods and many meds. We finally...

    gurgling noise in stomach

    You can try no fat plain yogurt and see if that helps calm their stomach. If not a medicine like famotidine or Omeprazole 20mg can work also. If it is a continuous thing it may be good to have a vet check for Pancreatitis or Colitis.

    Need a flea/tick preventative

    I use Trifexis and love it!! I have not found one flea or tick on them this year:) It also does heartworms, hookworms, roundworms and whipworms. I hated putting on the topical stuff each year it made such a mess and never lasted a full month.

    New Baby

    Oh wow poor baby!!! Thank you for saving her and giving her a good forever home:) Maybe with time and trusting you she will let you start to touch her feet so you can put meds on them. Can't the lack of a good diet cause many different types of skin reactions especially in their paws? I hope you...

    puppy broke her tooth

    Can you call your vet just to see what they suggest? I know it is a baby tooth but the possible infection would worry me. My Buckeye just went through major dental surgery and I felt so bad for not catching things sooner!! As for her crying while your gone, does she have anything to keep her...
