    About 18 months ago my 5yr old Staffy fell on the ice and ruptured her spinal cord leaving her paralyzed. My vet recommended putting her down. Which sadly we did. She said it was not common. And that she had only seen one other dog with a similiar injury. I rescued a wonderful APBT shortly...

    Does anyone have experience dealing with their dog barking non stop if someone goes in the pool? She loves to swim but will bark excessively if someone goes in the pool. If we bring her in the pool, she will swim and be fine but if she gets out, and there are still people in the pool she goes...

    I have a 4 yr old male blue nose pit bull, he's very sweet and loving but does suffer from some separation anxiety. I thought maybe getting a friend for him to have with him at home for the minimal amount of time he is alone would be a good idea, that being said I was asked to rescue a 5 yr old...

    Ok so I have 3 dogs which are awesome dogs I've only had problems with the newest member of the family and I think it's just because he's younger. My oldest 2 are 12yrs old and 3. He's almost a year old and now he's non stop biting and nipping at the other 2 which they tolerate until they get...

    So I've taken my dog to the free clinic in my city nearby when this started about a year or so ago. They first put him on Amoxicillin 500g twice a day for a month. That didn't seem to help much, it suppressed it but wasn't really getting better. I went back and they switched him to Cephalexin...

    ok so I have taken my 2 yr old pitty to the vet 3 times to have his anal glands released and they say nothing is wrong. I even had his sool tested for anything he may have gotten. I have always fed him raw organic meats and vegetables and even giving him organic pumpkin and anti inflammatory...

    Hi Everyone! I am new here, and I am so glad I found this place. We rescued a 3 year old blue pit back in January of this year. She is the sweetest dog ever and we couldn't figure out why anyone would give her up. At first her skin was great and then as the months went on it progressively...

    I've had my PB for four years now. Stewie is five years old. He was adopted from the SPCA and when I met him, he was the sweetest, kindest dog I'd met in awhile. Little did I know he was sick and would wind up really sick with pneumonia after they neutered him. (I tried to warn them that I...

    I recently rescued a puppy out of a bad situation, and I will obviously be taking her to the vet, but wanted to know if anyone has seen this skin condition in a pit bull? She is not itchy and the missing patch is not round so I don't believe it's mange. I was thinking sun burn from being...

    Ammo lost a tooth today(canine) but to me it looks like it broke off and not all of it fell out. I haven't been able to get a good look at it yet, and am going to try to in a bit but was. Wondering if anyone had this happen and what had to be done about it. My MIL suggested watching it for a...

    I need some advice, my 2 1/2 yr old white red nose has some real bad spots on the back of his neck. They look like hot spots, but the vet says its canine dermatitis. I've tried some ointment that they gave me for it and some antibiotics which helped for a bit but a week later the problem came...

    I'm sure many of us have been there and searching for advice is actually how I found this forum. I'm 26 and recently made my first real estate purchase, a small town home in a deed restricted community. I can't stand the idea of a HOA, while I understand some of the reasons behind them, my dad...

    Hello all. My female pitty has been struggling with skin issues for a while now. She is about 5 years old and for the last 2 years this has been going on. The first vet diagnosed her with demodex mites and treated her with a laundry list of meds which I took her off of due to bad side effects...

    It's not really a problem as he's just a pet but when he was younger he didn't have this problem. He's about eight months old now and one of his ears is always up which seems rather strange. Here's a picture, is there anything I can do about this?

    Hi everyone, I know that there are several posts on here about skin issues/allery issues, and my poor bully has something that we can't seem to shake. For three months he has been on SIMPLICEF 200MG antibacterial meds for supposed folliculitis. He has also been on omega fishoil. Towards the...

    My husband and I have had a pit (JJ) and dachshund (Charlie) both male for almost two years. When we first got the boys JJ would get aggressive with Charlie but we thought it was the dominance issue and it didn't happen very often. We helped to dominance by feeding JJ first, giving him treats...
