I have a 3-year-old female half poodle, half shihtzu who had gone through 5 heats. I'm not planning on getting her pregnant but some of my friends tell me that if a dog does not experience mating they'd die early and I was a bit worried about that. Is it true
I have a question that I hope you can answer or lead me down the right path. My partners Dog (Staffordshire Terrier PB) has an excessive licking issue to the point that my other dogs head it dripping wet or what ever he's licking is wet. He licks the air also and is just constantly licking. Its a saw point when I bring this up about his dog but it needs to be addressed. He says its an anxiety, but i think its more than that?? Its become such a habit i really feel sorry for poor Rusty Dog.Rusty is 7 years old this year and I believe this has been going on since a puppy. (He is a Purebred English Staffordshire Terrier) Can only select American in the breeding section.He says that collecting Rusty at 11 weeks instead of 8 weeks has led to his licking issue. That doesn't sit well with me at all. I see this as an addictive behaviour now unless he has a gut issue that's causing him to lick due to acid re-flux or something maybe?? I hope you can help..
hi, I'm needing advice on the odd behavior of our chihuahua Pepe.He is being very stubborn, ignoring master, turns his nose up at ANY food we give him and completly ignores commands or instructions. He never used to be like this he used to guts any food we give him, would always do what he is told and trained properly. He is not sick or neglected in anyway, he s behavior has changed for no reason at all. Please help any and all advice would be greatly appreciated.
Our sharpei has been having seizures since around 14 weeks, she has been diagnosed with juvenile epilepsy. More recently she has been diagnosed with hip and elbow displaysia and a bulging disc in her lower spine. Is there any treatments you could recommend, our current vet thinks treatment would be too hard on her poor body. Other than the seizures she seems happy but is a little slow to get up and when playing with our other dog she finds ways to play with out running. Hel
I have a borderemma, maremma cross border collie, female, she is quite big and boisterous! Not sure the best age to get her desexed. I keep getting mixed information from breeders. She has the chracreristics and size of the maremma breed and only has the border collie exact markings.
A question for any vets out there - I am considering buying a Border Collie puppy from a breeder in Perth, Western Australia. In this litter, one puppy was stillborn and another puppy died after only a few days (there are 3 puppies surviving). Should I be concerned about possible current and or future health issues in the remaining puppies? eg could this indicate issues with the placenta/ utero environment which could mean the surviving puppies didn't get the healthiest start to life?
American Bulldog 'Zarli' - We have tried everything and spent tens of thousands of dollars trying to fix my dogs skin. We have been told she is allergic to the sun, an albino and we bought her a sun suit that didn't work at all. we have tried keeping her out of the sun. We have tried every cream and ointment she has been prescribed. Also every tablet/medication possible and nothing has worked. Recently we have tried using 'black salve' which ate away a lump but seemed quite uncomfortable for my little girl and the lump grew back a while after please help us to fix her skin as you can see from the scarring this has been happening her whole life and we are running out of options. Also we own her father and he has no skin problems and is a fully White American bulldog.
