    Trying not to panic....

    I can understand your anxiety with this situation. Our pups/dogs depend on us for everything and at times we feel helpless when something goes wrong. When I bought my first Boxer the vet I started using told me to only feed him twice a day. My pup at the time didn't like this at all, became...

    Trying not to panic....

    You may also want to check under Puppy Matters for more information. I'm glad that you have contacted the breeder, however I can't help but wonder why the breeder didn't go over puppy feeding with you at the time of purchase. Puppies are growing and it takes alot of energy to grow as fast as...

    Trying not to panic....

    I agree with the last reply. Our puppies need to be fed more than twice a day. This sounds like a case of hypoglycemia rather than heart related. It was the first thought that came to my mind.

    Seasonal Alopecia

    You could also try supplementing with salmon oil. I give Palmer a product called Derma pet (I think that's what it's called) His coat is now so silky soft and beautiful.

    Back Surgery

    DH had an appointment last thursday to get a shot in his back to relieve his pain. This doctor also examined him and put him on a regimen of daily exercises that will strengthen his core muscles. Short story, turns out that his muscles are so tight that they are pulling his bones all out of...

    Back Surgery

    Thanks for the replies. It is good to hear some positive words. TossBranAbi, so sorry to hear about all you've been thru. I looked at the pics you posted and am just amazed as what the end result is. As with any surgery there are many, many risks. Since we live in a smaller area I am...

    Back Surgery

    My husband has been diagnosed with Sponylolisthesis in his lower lumber, the L-5. The doc is trying some pain management procedures before he recommends surgery. The surgery will be disk fusion. Does anyone have experience with this? I'm kinda apprehensive about all this.

    Boxer with open mouth!

    I had this happen with my last Boxer. The vet said it could be some sort of trauma caused be his collar "choking" him, or brain tumor or cancer. The trauma could have been caused by him getting hung up on something when I wasn't looking. Anyway, I was giving some anti-inflammatories to help...

    Stressed to the MAX

    Sorry all this is happening. When I went through my divorce I worked full time during the day and waitressed at night to make ends meet. Waitressing is a great way to make extra money, plus you'll always have some in your pocket at the end of the night. It isn't glamorous but it helps...

    Arthritis in the spine

    My DH has been diagnosed with arthritis in his lower back. His Doc wants to try physical therapy to see if this helps at all. We are also looking at getting a hot tub. We've been wanting one for a while now and this seems like a good time. Does anyone have any experience with this type of...

    My previous Boxer had Pancreatitis. I was able to control it with Science Diet W/D. He did really well on this food. I used boiled chicken, cottage cheese (no-fat kind) and veggies and cooked rice for his snacks and treats. He loved this diet.

    Think DH might have cheated on me???

    IMO, if there is any doubt in your mind, which apparently there is, regarding his faithfulness then he has already cheated on you. It shouldn't matter if it's "only" a hickey, or more than that. The very fact that he went to strip clubs is completely disrespectful to you. The covenant of...

    Teeth Grinder

    Palmer does the same thing. When he getting comfortable and settling down for the night or a nap he grinds his teeth. Kind of annoying to listen too.
