    Stage II MCT

    Unfortunately I have now joined the ranks of boxer owners who have dealt/are dealing with an MCT. Got the labs back on the lump we had removed Monday, and it came back as Stage II. I am SO GLAD that a) DH was out of town and I could have the vet do what I want without him griping about the money...

    The health scares never end...

    Hi all, sorry I haven't been on the boards much recently.... life has been kind of insane. To add to the mix, 3 weeks ago Hurricane lacerated the underside of his paw (between the middle pad and a toe pad) on a Saturday night. $450 at the emergency vet and 2 stitches later he was fine. Keeping...

    Atlanta Rescue?

    My brother and sister in law want to adopt a boxer, they are about an hour outside Atlanta in GA. Can anyone recommend a good rescue? I know there is Atlanta Boxer Rescue but are there any others? Thanks in advance!

    Mange, allergies, or something else??

    First off, I'm sorry I have been off the boards for so long. We moved and haven't had internet at home for quite some time... but we finally got it back! Second let me say I am taking Hurricane to see the vet asap, the soonest I can get him there is Tuesday so I am just looking for ideas in the...

    Happy Birthday,my boy!

    Wow, three years old already! birthdayic Hurricane, I love you and I have enjoyed the last three years so much.... I hope you enjoy your steak dinner tonight! ;) (Good grief they grow up fast don't they? Seems like yesterday he was an 8 lb puppy who couldn't go the night without a trip or two...

    Broken tooth, what to do??

    Hurricane broke another tooth. The first one was one of his bottom canines, and was hardly more than a chip off of the tip. It didn't bother him at all and with his chewing he ground off the sharp edges and has been fine ever since. This time, however, he has broken off a good portion of one of...

    Moving again.... sigh.

    Well it's official. DH and I are planning our 13th move. We have been married 5 years this month and this will be our 13th move. :( I am very excited about this one though, since we will be moving closer to his family, whom I adore, and we will be buying our first house (yay!) but I am SO not...

    Met his first boxer :)

    We went to Indiana to visit the inlaws for the holidays, and stayed with DH's gradparents this time instead of his parents where we usually stay, due to a lack of room. I was concerned about this for two reasons: Hurricane had never been in that house before, and DH's grandparents are getting...

    A laugh and a rant.

    We went up to Indiana to visit my inlaws for Thanksgiving (one day, as I had to work today). Some relatives of my husband's who I had never met before had recently moved from California to be with the rest of the family in Indiana and so we had Thanksgiving dinner at their house. Of course we...

    Too grown up for the crate!

    hehe! I just have to share this story with other boxer people.... Hurricane has decided in no uncertain terms that he is done with his crate. For those of you who don't know we have dealt with some anxiety issues that have (until now) required us to keep him crated while we are gone...

    Hey everyone, long time no "see"

    I am back! :) I have been without internet for so long, and I have missed coming here and being a part of this community. But at last my exile is over :) Hurricane is doing well. He is now 2.5 years old and we have finally managed to get him physically and mentally calmed down. We visited a...

    European Breeder for US Resident?

    I am not sure I am posting this in the right place... if I am not, please move this wherever it needs to go :) I am curious... how difficult is it for those of us in the US to get a boxer from a reputable breeder in Europe? I realize it would be rather expensive... but here is the deal: DH...

    Absolutely livid... will be finding a new vet.

    I have to rant to someone who will understand. I posted last week that my vet had diagnosed Hurricane with epilepsy... well the other night he "seized" (had tremors) all night long, and when I called the vet the next day they immediately wanted to put him on Diazepam. I was instantly uneasy...

    Diagnosis!!!

    Thank God, finally some answers. Hurricane continued to have these head tremors since Friday, several per day. I finally had the smart idea to videotape them (duh!) and show them to the vet, since he seemed really confused when I tried to describe what was happening over the phone. He said...

    Allergies???

    I am beginning to think all of Hurricane's troubles are from allergies. The ears were first, then I noticed a really pink/red nose (where his fur is white) and bright pink/red paws. He has not been licking his paws, but they are quite brightly colored. Then the head tremors started. Then...

    I am at my wit's end :(

    Ok if I ever had any doubts that getting a dog from a BYB was a HORRIBLE idea on our part they are long gone. All the health issues we have dealt with Hurricane have cost us so much more than a puppy would have at a reputable breeder, not to mentioin sleepless nights and countless hours in...

    Would you say this was an allergic reaction? (long)

    Hi all, just wanted some more opinions... The last bag of food I had Hurricane on was TOTW (the duck formula, don't remember the name of it) and we only bought it because it is the only grain free food we can get here. Before that he was on Wellness CORE and did great, but I have to order...

    I know vomiting bits of bone is normal but...

    Ok, I don't feed raw but I do try to give Hurricane RMBs to chew on, and I found pork neck bones (or sections of them, not sure how they are cut) on sale yesterday so I picked up a pack. I gave him two pieces (about 3-4 inches long each, I have no idea if they were several vertebrae or just one...

    I have joined the ranks of the boxer-stalkers! :)

    Well it finally happened. I don't get out much, so it took a while, but I finally stalked a boxer pup! :) We were in Petco this afternoon and when we walked out there was an adorable boxer baby being carried in by a young girl and her father. Sweet little classic fawn with a touch of white on...
