    Hello everyone, first time posting here. We have a 7.5 year old pitbull who tore his ACL a few weeks ago. We've gotten a variety of recommendations from veterinarians in our area.

    I'm starting to suspect that Squirt has a luxating patella in his right hind. He's started doing the telltale "skip" with that leg. I've always worried that he'd have some issues in his hind end somewhere since he's so cow-hocked and a structural nightmare. We have an appointment with our vet...

    I had a dog almost die tonight choking on a raw pork neck. I've thrown up twice over the whole ordeal and I just can't seem to shake this feeling. I've had dogs die, dogs killed, and dogs stolen and I have NEVER felt this useless and scared. I guess I've never watched a dog dying I've just found...

  7. Bloodline Discussion
    So I just got a puppy. He just turned 12 weeks. I've been researching the pros and cons about having his ears cropped.

    When I first rescued my blue girl (at 6 months) she had the runs, had patches of fur increasingly missing, and was shedding like crazy. I did a lot of research on this forum and picked a little from a few different sources to try. 1. Put her on TOTW - Salmon food (Salmon for the additional...

    We (my boyfriend, almost 4 year old son and 4 month old puppy) were at Petsmart to pick up something sunday afternoon. Puppy was being very well behaved. Lets face it, he's adorable. Everyone comments how cute he is. This couple approach us and the wife is all "OMG he's SOOOOO adorable!" She...

    I'm considering getting a smooth coated Airedale for a future dog, as I've been wanting a dog that's a very versatile hunter. They hadn't crossed my mind before, but I looked into them a bit for a friend. Found this nice blog, really showed their potential to do well in multiple fields...
