Hmm, that is very true. Thanks, everyone! Silly me worrying about vegetables. :mrgreen:

Re: Raw Food Diet

I read in a website that giving vegetables regularly can cause premature greying in a dog because vegetables stress out the pancreas. Just wondering if anyone heard of this? I ask because my Beagle started getting white hair on his face, especially around the eyes at the age of 3 and a half. I reali...

Re: Might have to send my baby away..

So as an update, I did find a place, but unfortunately, I can't move out because my lease is not over until June, next year. The door problem has somewhat disappeared, Bagel is not attempting to go in the room as often as before. He still tries from time to time though. But the problem now is that f...

Re: Might have to send my baby away..

I've been looking around for doggy daycare for days when I have to stay out for awhile. It hasn't happened yet, but thought it would be good to know one or two. There was one that I liked, which is a day care run by a female at her house with her two small dogs. There will be other dogs, I presume b...

Re: Heartworm Medication

Depends. Has he always slept a lot, or is this something brand new? What is the weather like in SoCal at the moment? How much exercise does he get? My dog acts like a big lazy oaf on hot days or days that I feel like taking long walks. If he's fine otherwise - alert and responsive, eating and drink...

Re: FLEAS!!

Neem oil smells strong (anything that smells strong to you is many times worse for your dog, remember that! =D) so do use it really sparingly. You can try rubbing diatomaceous earth in your dog's coat and that will kill the remaining fleas by drying them out. Apple Cider Vinegar is my go-to "drug" ...

Re: Might have to send my baby away..

Do you have a crate and is Bagel crate trained? I think for now, crate train him and use that for the times you absolutely MUST be out of the house and he cannot come with you. I have a kennel and though he didn't care for it before, Bagel has been going in it a lot more these days. I think wheneve...

Re: Heartworm Medication

Just out of curiosity, which flea med was it? Also, I should correct myself, I did screw up one detail in the life cycle - the larvae live in the skin for 3-4 months, not 1. BUT, they're only immature for one month of that. I knew I had a detail mixed up there :roll: . I have him on Pet Armor right...

Re: Heartworm Medication

:shock: :shock: Ok, now I'm having second thoughts about going to that particular vet. I've talked to two receptionists in that clinic, and both of them were very matter-of-fact-ish about heartworms. They looked at me silly for being so worried about heartworm. I asked the first receptionist for a h...

Re: Heartworm Medication

I am very paranoid about heartworms, so a quick question. Does anyone ever skip heartworm prevention? Bagel used to be on Wormshield which is a tablet, but the new vet gives out Revolution. The thing is I just put him on flea medication, and the receptionist told me that since Southern California ha...

Re: Might have to send my baby away..

is this your first year in college? if so, you might be surprised in about a month what might open up. lots of people drop out or reduce their class load etc after the first month or two and that could affect alternate housing options. change of semesters is also a good time to make changes. I woul...

Re: Might have to send my baby away..

Not very helpful suggestion, but I would seriously think about a move. Quite a story...Seems a little bizzare to me that she would keep another person's dog locked up in her room :shock: But anyways, I do want to move out. It's only been about three weeks, and although two of the housemates are gre...

Re: Might have to send my baby away..

What did you intend to do with him while you were at school? Before I moved in I was thinking of just putting him in my room because I assumed that my roommate would be ok with having him on her bed since she had her own dog. But it's my fault for assuming. I guess it's different having another per...

Re: Might have to send my baby away..

Thank you all very much. It's helped a lot. I will do something about that door. I feel as if I take the initiative and fix that door, she really won't be able to say anything if he does go into her room again. However, just like 3 weeks is not enough for your dog to adjust, it's not enough for you ...

Might have to send my baby away..

I had my Beagle for three years. I've raised him with my family until about two to three weeks ago. I moved away, and I took my dog with me. But the problem is, he isn't behaving the way that my housemates and roommate want him to behave. One of them doesn't want him in her room, though the door is ...
