Dog about to be spayed

Hi everybody! My APBT is going to be spayed next week! I followed everyone's advice on this board and waited for her to mature a bit before having the surgery, and I'm taking her to a really good vet (who is so popular that we had to wait for 3 months for an appointment... hope that means she's the ...

Thanks OB! :) I've done some more research and I think you're right - I'll wait a few months and then get it done. She should nearly be done with her cycle I think. dana - Thanks also for your reply. :) I'm trying to arrange something. I'll be moving out after she's done with her surgery, so I'm thi...

Question about spaying

Hi Everyone! I have a couple of questions about when it would be best to have my APBT spayed. First of all, she is 11 months old and is in heat now. I don't know if this is her first time or not - I have only been around her since she was 5 months old. She's actually my brother's dog, but we live in...

Thanks guys! I'm pretty sure her food is good. She eats Canidae brand dry food. Also, I didn't make myself very clear on the exercise thing. I agree that only one hour of total exercise would be awful! LOL! What I meant to say was that she gets at least one hour of strenuous exercise per day in addi...

Hyper APBT

Hi everyone, it's been a while since I posted last and I have a new question. My 9 (or so) month old female APBT has bursts of hyperactive behavior that I have trouble controlling. When she's in a normal, calm mood, she's pretty obedient and good. That's about 80% of the time she's awake. The other ...

Hehe, I don't know how to load them... will have to wait until emmabeth posts how. She is cute! She is mostly white with a dark brown head and black and dark brown spots. When you give her kisses on the face, she chomps at you with her teeth and then looks at you like, "What happened?" Lis & Addy, I...

Hi Paul, I can't tell if you're serious or joking about the wolves, but if you are seriously offended, I wanted you to know that I meant nothing negative about wolves. They just have really big teeth and seem like they could do a lot of damage. Wolves are great! :) I didn't mean we should boycott th...

Thank you so much for posting that link! I've just signed it and encourage everyone else to sign it as well. You don't have to be from the US to sign it. In my opinion, this man ought to be placed in a ring with a pack of wolves. I'm not saying he should die, just mauled beyond recognition. :x In ad...

Hehe, well, she is almost 6 months old, breed = APBT, not spayed yet, waiting for her to mature first. She didn't leave her litter mates too early... actually, the breeder was having a hard time finding homes for the puppies and she was about 3 months old before leaving home. And by breeder I mean, ...

I completely agree with what you've said about dominance, Emmabeth. Another thing I think is interesting about the way people tend to think about dog behavior is the way people rely on their limited knowledge of wolf behavior to explain dog behavior. You mentioned this and I've been thinking about i...

Hi,

As far as I know, mushrooms like carbon-rich soil. Therefore, if you fertilize your lawn with a nitrogen-based fertilizer, which is pretty much any lawn fertilizer since they're all nitrogen-based, then it should help stamp out your mushroom problem.

Hope this helps!

Thanks to both of you! I think I'll not go with raw food just because I'm not sure about my ability to do it properly and don't want to make her sick by accidentally feeding her something bad. That stinks about my vet probably not knowing much about nutrition... it makes sense though since she sells...

My name is Sarah. I'm 22, just graduated with a degree in English, and now looking for a job. My dog is Annie, a 12 year old who-knows-what. She's kind of big, about 55-60lbs, black with some white now that she's older, and has the most dense, fluffy, multi-layered fur of any dog anywhere! She came ...

Oh, also, I tried to give Annie some raw chicken breast and she spit it out and licked her lips like she'd eaten a lemon or something and walked off. So I think since she's eaten commercial dog food her whole life she doesn't know what to think of raw food. So any advice about either acceptable cann...

Hi, Sorry to hear that your dog is sick! :( I know nothing about veterinary medicine personally, but if I were you, I'd get a second opinion from another vet. That way, since you're uncomfortable with the way your dog is reacting to your current vet's treatment plan, you'd be able to have outside co...
