    2 wk old baby/Boxer worries

    Hi, I have a 2 1/2 wk old baby girl and have some questions about what are normal reactions for boxers around children. When Macon sniffed Leah's dirty diaper the other day, she started humping. And then the other day when I squatted down while holding Leah, so Macon could sniff and check her...

    red and raised bumps around collar area

    In the late summer/early fall time, Macon had a HORRIBLE reaction on her neck and we're pretty sure it's from the weeds (environmental allergies) because she gets something just about the same time every year. The poor thing scratched it so bad, her neck looked like raw meat. It was awful...

    can i give toby claritin?

    Our vet told us to give Claritin (we use generic brand for Loratadine) and since most of them are 24 hour pills, I give 1 or 2 per day depending on how bad her allergies are. You can also give Tavist, but be sure it's not Tavist-D. Benadryl doesn't seem to work as well for my babies either. If...

    Fawn Boy in MI

    If they don't know his background, I wonder why they think he's not good with kids. Maybe just because he's a boxer puppy and a little rambuncious? Hmm I don't know. A lot of people don't know that boxers are great with kids usually. I would be curious if he is full blooded boxer or not, which...

    Any foods without....

    We feed the Natural Balance Duck/Potato and the girls love it! We've fed the Natural Balance Venison/Rice in the past too. If you have a PetCo or Pet Supplies Plus near you, you should be able to find it easily. Good Luck!

    Elimination Diet

    I FEEL for you!! My golden mix has had horrible allergies for the last 5 years (she's only 6) and Macon (our boxer) has allergies but only in late summer/early fall and we did the food elimination trials with her in the past, so we think wheat is a culprit but we aren't sure. My advice is to...

    toy confusion?

    Hmmm so I know Macon is going to "claim" many of our baby's toys (we're due in 5 wks). Does anyone have any suggestions on how to avoid this? Are there any things that are "supposed" to work that you've tried? Just curious. I've already started pushing buttons on toys and making them play...

    Hi everyone! I don't think I've been on since October :( I've been on bedrest for the last 4 wks. DH and I are trying to narrow down our baby girl's name. We are due on Valentine's Day. Please give me your opinion on the following names. Macon's little kid sister needs a name! Halle...

    Some people!!!

    Hi Jen! Long time no post, I know :( I completely agree with you. We won't be taking Angel (my golden mix) to the dog park anymore because she's decided she doesn't like some dogs and I don't want her snapping at someone else's dog. What idiots! and then he left his dog with someone else knowing...

    Good news but need prayers

    Update!! Hi everyone, I'm 17 weeks tomorrow and we'll find out in 2 weeks if we're having a boy or a girl! I am so excited and can't wait to see our little baby on the Ultrasound. We're having it at the hospital so both of our moms can come to the ultrasound too. Since they had kids in the 70's...

    My daughter lost her baby

    You and your family are in my prayers. I had a miscarriage in April at 8 weeks and was spotting/cramping the whole time too. I got pregnant again in May as soon as we were able to, so there is hope. I am 17 weeks tomorrow and I'm sure I'll be nervous the whole time about losing the baby, but...

    Their blood must be as sweet as their personalities!

    Donna, sorry to hear your babies were eaten alive by mosquitos! Macon gets lumps from the bites too. I'm the same way. I'm looking into what we can put on them that isn't harmful. For now, my vet said we could rub the mosquito wipes on them that you can buy for kids. I did that last summer and...

    Good news but need prayers

    Thanks so much everyone!! Things are good so far. Our first ultrasound isn't until July 6th, so I'll feel better after that I'm sure. I'm only 5 weeks right now, so it's still early but luckily no alarming symptoms like before. I've been EXHAUSTED though. Holy cow have I been tired. I'll KUP...

    Buster's hair is falling out

    Shannon, have you already read the posts about Seasonal Flank Alopecia recently? If not, it's a condition that happens in the winter months/spring usually due to lack of sunlight. Certain breeds are more prone to it than others, boxers being one of them. It's just cosmetic and usually takes...

    Buster's hair is falling out

    Tracey, I know how you feel. I was one of the people who posted about Seasonal Flank Alopecia. I don't think you need to take off work and go to the vet right away. I'm not taking Macon until next Tuesday. If it's Seasonal Flank Alopecia, it's nothing serious. You may want his thyroid tested...
