    DM harness/rear lift suggestions

    Rambo is almost 10, and was diagnosed with DM about 9 months ago. He is having so much trouble getting around that I want to look into harnesses or rear lifts. He has lost almost all use of his rear left leg, and the right leg isn't far behind. He stubbles terribly when he walks, and he's...

    Re-introduction- back after 2+ years

    It's been several years since I last visited BoxerWorld, so I thought that a new introduction was appropriate. I joined BoxerWorld 9 years ago after we welcomed our boxer, Rambo. Rambo is still with us, but sadly is struggling with DM. He still has some use of his rear legs, but is declining...

    Vet isn't concerned about thyroid, but I am

    What is with vets not being open to diagnosis or consider tyroid problems in boxers? 1 year ago, I had bloodwork done on Rambo- T4 was 1.1 (normal was 1-4) Last week, I had the bloodwork redone- T4 was 1 (normal is .8-3.5) Vet just called and said that is a completely normal level. She...

    Finally more Diamond/TOTW recall

    We switched cold turkey from TOTW Pacific Stream to Acana Pacifica. My store recommended it since it's similar to the TOTW formula that Rambo was on. We're on day 3 now, and haven't seen any soft stools or upset tummy.

    Finally more Diamond/TOTW recall

    Ugh, just checked the production code and date on my bag of Pacific Stream, and my bag is part of the recall. Is anyone else going to switch cold turkey to a new food? I don't even want a replacement bag not affected by the recall, I just want something made by a different company.

    Seasonal Flank Alopecia

    Rambo gets Seasonal Flank Alopecia every winter. This winter seems to be worse, though. He was diagnosed by his vet several years ago (just based on appearance), and we've never treated it. It's usually bad from about December-February, but then begins to improve once Spring arrives. By mid...

    Henri - 9 years

    He's so handsome, and I always love seeing pictures of him swimming! I'm surprised that he didn't have a huge stick in his mouth! Doesn't he love to grab loose sticks during his swims?

    I don't have him, but know of a senior boxer or boxer mix found in Baltimore County, Maryland. No microchip. Said to be very friendly and calm. Just wanted to post here in case anyone is missing a senior in Maryland.
