Re: USA vs. UK laws

I know in the county I live in in Florida, there just isn't enough money to fund animal control and have enough officers to enforce the laws. The laws are not easy to enforce and the punishments are minimal at best because people don't 'care' about the animals, weather they are dogs, cats or mice. T...

Re: Need to vent alittle!!

I wanted to give him the allergy tests but they were over $300 at the vets office but I found out yesterday that the SPCA charges $180 so I may be able to that in a few weeks. I talked to a friend of mine, she told me that her dog had some of the same issues Connor had and that a lot of dogs are all...

Re: So mad!!!

It's the same here in Florida. The next street over from us there's a house that has several dogs that bark all day and night. By the sounds of the barking, there are several large and small breeds there. You have even hear them fighting eachother. When I called the county humane society, they told ...

Re: MY DOG IS AFRAID OF YOUNG CHILDREN - please help!!!!!!!

I have a 3 yr old min pin, much smaller than yours of course, and he is fearful of any age child. Most likely from his size. What I have done with him is have a neighborhood child come over and we go in the back yard, where is a little more queit, and have them sit on the ground, closer to his level...

Re: Need to vent alittle!!

He takes an allergy med twice a day already. He's been on it for about a year now because of his grass allergy. I had rather not take any chances with feeding my baby a raw food diet. I know humans with kidney failure and I know what they go thru everyday (I am a home health aid for seniors with hea...

Re: Need to vent alittle!!

He is on Natural Balance, sweet potato and chicken. He is allergic to grains, wheat and barley, and this doesn't have any grains, not even rice, and the protein is only 21%. My vet told me that high protein diets aren't good for little dogs as they cannot process the protein and will cause kidney fa...

Re: Teeth Cleaning

I tried the chicken and vegiges, half of them he wouldn't eat and my vet told me not to put him on raw meats becuase little dogs cannot handle that much protein, it will cause his kidneys to shut down. The raw food diet is a dangerous thing to get into if you aren't careful. I'd prefer not to put my...

Re: Teeth Cleaning

Connor has some tummy issues and I cannot do the raw diet. It made him really sick. He is a min pin and cannot have rawhide, it gets soggy and sticks in his throat. He doesn't like crunchy cookie type treats or those greenies things.

Re: Teeth Cleaning

This is a really good sight. I have tried to brush Connors teeth and he doesn't like it at all. I am going to try these instructions and see how it goes. Talk about step by step instructions.

Re: What could this be? Please help!!

I'll try to get some pics up of this. He doesn't like the camera too much so that's going to be a chore. I'll try to get them up this afternoon.

What could this be? Please help!!

Well, I haven't been able to take him to the vet, very short on funds, but Connor has these white spots on his hind quarters going up his sides. There is no flaking or scaling, no red marks of any kind, no pimples or bumps, just white spots and the fur is gone. He doesn't seem to be scratching at th...
