    Hello! Our family recently adopted a 9.5 week old pittie pup from the local animal shelter. I was shocked to learn she was already spayed at 8 weeks. When I adopted her, I had no idea the health concerns that come along with early spay. But the over-researcher I am, I have learned that the loss...

    I'm working on getting the plaque build-up off my pit's teeth and a bunch has been softened enough to chip off or brush off. His breath smells worse than it did before. I'm thinking the newly chipped off areas are releasing the smell, but I was told it could also be in his gut. I don't have him...

    Hello all! I have a 1 yr old pittie mix. She is all white (not albino). Lately I have noticed bumps all on her back. They are not scabby, they just feel like a pimple that is not ready to pop. They are hard and firm. They almost look like scars on top. She doesn't scratch them. These have come...

    Patchouli was repeatedly hit on the head in his previous life, and he has dental issues to show for it. On the left side, he’s missing 2 premolars. Yesterday he lost another on the right side that had been loose but we can’t tell why because he hasn’t been injured recently. The whole tooth...

    hello, I am a first-time pitbull/puppy owner. upon much reading and research from this forum, I found my pup (10 weeks) has early stages of knuckling over. I understand it has to do with the diet, specifically protein. I was feeding him pedigree puppy formula and now has found it is actually...

    Hi, This is Sandra. Recently I bought a CBD oil for my Tommy as my friend suggest me to buy this homeopathic product for my pet. Its effect was not bad at all but I already questioned it in another dog forum. They said me that, "" Homeopathic views differ greatly from traditional medicine."" So...

    Okay so I fell in love with this full grown very tiny (40lb) little pit bull named Anita at the shelter I volunteer at. I adopted her at the begining of December 2015 and took her to my vet immediately because she had a couple patches of hair loss. Her skin was also pink, and filthy. She was...

    I have a 10 year old pit who for the past couple months has been very lethargic and acts like he's very uncomfortable. He trembles very badly in the morning and daytime for a couple hours. He has labored breathing when he tries to sleep and very very bloodshot eyes 24/7. He is drinking about...

    I took Camo to the vet this past Saturday for the annual checkup. The vet complimented how lean I keep Camo, he got his 1 year vaccines and a 3 year rabies shot. On the poke and prod test the vet said his knees and elbows feel good and sees no reason why I can't start upping the work load...
  12. Bullies 101
    I am looking to buy a bully pup later this year, but am looking for a breeder who actually health tests (I have found NONE thus far). It is really disheartening when I ask some of these "Big Names" if they health test and they act like I am offending them. IF you are getting "$5,000" for a...

    Hey Guys! I'm have a 1 yr old Staffie/Rott mix and his ears are cropped. The problem is, we live in upstate New York, where it snows, constantly during the winter months. The other day, when it snowed my Staffie(bolo) got snow in his ears, while out playing. I didn't think any thing of it at...

    My 7 month old pitbull has recently started losing hair around his eyes. He has hair in between his eyes and hasn't lost hair anywhere else at all. There's no bumps or sores or anything. He appears healthy, up to date on shots and is really active. No loss of appetite or any signs of being sick...

She went to the vet and got meds and we switched her food and the hives went away and then she started shedding a lot!! We figured she was just getting a summer coat but in concerned that...

    When my pup was given to us I took her to the vet and found up she was full of hook worms and coccidia. Now as she is getting older I always think in the back of my mind that those things sffected her growth as she is about 20lbs right now at 10 months where the rest of her littermates are more...

    I was at the vet the other day because my baby was hopping around on three legs.. it turns out that her back left is lame, and that because she's putting so much stress on the right to compensate, the other one is eventually going to go lame as well. they haven't done xrays, so we're not sure...
