So my silly Moe crack his teeth. Don't know why, don't know how. I just feel bad for him, must be very painful.Few days ago, I saw his teeth has some serious tartar. So I try to use some dental cleaning tool to clean it. Before I do it, I noticed part of the tooth is missing and I can see some pink stuff inside. Today, when I clean his tartar, I confirm there is a hole in his tooth. And I can use the dental tool to touch his tooth nerve. Sigh, it must be super painful...Moe is only 5, so I hope…See More
"I'm surprised it doesn't say anything on the bottle about whether it's ok for cats or not. Try googling the product and see what other info you can find. I tried an additive and I know it was fine for the cats. I had…"
My corgi, Moe, need the Arm and Hammer Dental Water Additive to help minimize his tartar problem. Somehow the tartar build up very fast and thick in one side of his big teeth.I used to add the additive in their water before I got the kitties. Now I have two active ragdolls running around and share the same water bowl with the corgis. I don't think it is possible to separate their water bowl, since they like to drink or eat wherever they like. So I am wondering if the additive is ok for the…See More
The vet said there are 3 option for Maggie, 1. no operation, just take antibiotic and let her heal. 2. remove the damaged and bad tissue from her anal gland. 3. remove both side of the anal gland.
He said for #2, she might had another…"
"Yes. With a continuing discharge, it sure sounds a lot like infection. One hates to fall back right away on one's favorite strategy: SECOND OPINION. But if your vet can't come up with a satisfactory strategy soon or explain why it's…"
"What does your vet say? When they suggested Kramer's be removed he'd had several infections over a six month period. The material inside his glands was also much thicker than normal. It became very hard for them to express anything out. We…"
"Currently, I am feeding Hill's Prescription Diet® Canine Metabolic. Maggie is a little overweight. Normally, I feed them (I have 3 Corgis) Acana Grasslands.
Maggie's anal gland still have the dirty stuff coming out after 3 days. Poor…"
"My last dog had to have both anal glands removed. He was constantly dragging his butt, uncomfortable, had frequent infections and a few ruptures. After the surgery I wished the vet had suggested it sooner. He was much more comfortable. The surgery…"
So Maggie's left anal gland rupture again. The first rupture was like 6 months ago and the Dr. said just let her heal herself. So did she.We toke her to outside to wash before Christmas and we pay extra for the anal gland clean. Now it rupture again. sigh!I am thinking should her left anal gland be…See More
"When we brought home a kitten, we kept her in a safe room for about a week. When we did introduce the dogs, it was through the closed door first. We then introduced them through a baby gate, where they could see each other but were not…"
"I would have your dogs drag a leash in the house while introducing the kitten so you can more easily stop a chase. Put the dogs in a closed room at first and let the cat roam until he/she is comfortable. Then put the cat away while the dogs check…"
So I am going to have a brand new kitty to join my corgi nation. The kitty is a 12 weeks old Ragdoll and he is passive and mellow. He is tiny and soft, just like a doll.However, my corgis have their character. Maggie is bossy and protective to her belonging, that include food, bone and me. Moe is a follower, but he only follow me. He just want to stay beside me. Markus is jealous guy, he want to play all the time and stay beside my feet. Sometime, Moe will fight with Markus for the right to sit…See More
Congratulations on the new family member!!! Where abouts in Calgary do you live? We are in the North West. Perhaps a chance to meet up for the dogs to meet each other. Mason will be 3 in May and is very submissive and extremely friendly. Enjoy every moment - they aren't a puppy long enough.
