    Many dogs vomit up raw at first.  Their stomachs often don't contain enough of the right enzyme to break it down properly.  It varies quite a bit from dog to dog.  But owners who are looking to feed r more »

    I wouldn't consider "nothing but rabbit" to be a balenced raw diet.  There's a reason why raw diets are supposed to contain as wide a variety of meat as possible.  Not to mention that if said cat was more »

    Kar, where does it attach in the car? They DO make harnesses big enough for him, though most are more the "weight pull" or "walking harness" rather than a safety harness style.  And of course no-one c more »

    Not a vet, but she looks nice and trim to me. I remember thinking in an earlier picture of her you posted a while back that she looked a little chunky, not sure if it was the photo angle or if she was more »

    The little guy gets restrained, if for no other reason than he'd try to climb out the window....Apollo's to big to restrain in our current vehicles. Any crate that'd fit him won't fit in my Caliber, h more »

    If I recall right vets are required to take back unopened cans, and even opened packages of dry, prescription foods. At least partially because of the cost. Thats the way it was explained to me anyway more »

    Good! (you might be surprised on the rabbit, my local butcher shop carries it! I boil it like chicken, pour a little of the broth over their food, and dehydrate the meat for treats. They love it.) more »

    Different dogs respond differently to different products.  Starting out with the vet recommended ear cleaner is certinally a good idea, but if thats not working (and once infection has been ruled out) more »

    Peanut butter can be pretty fatty depending on the brand so that doesn't actually surprise me if the vet wants him on a low fat diet. If you start having issues with him eating that ask your vet about more »

    Being nervous isn't a bad thing, just keep in mind it might cost you more in vet bills to have your vet reassure you. There are a variety of ear cleaning products out there for use on dogs (your vet m more »

    Kar, god forbid he needs a PILL cause then he won't take it voluntarily at all, thankfully he's easy to shove it down his throat. Never tried cukes, but Apollo will happlily chew on carrots. more »

    Not Apollo, he CHEWS the capsoles. Like they're bubblegum. I've never seen a dog chew like he does, he definetly breaks open the capsoles. Every now and then he'll spit out the empty capsole instead o more »

    If you have a "natural foods" or health foods (or similer) store near you, you may be able to find marshmallow root ground sold by the ounce or pound.  No idea what it would cost, or if it would even more »

    Can't speak for dogs specifically, but they have proven that cranberries (usually in juice form) are effective against UTIs in humans.  When I get home today I'll see if I can tract down the link if y more »

  • Posted 02/02/2012 12:25:06 EST

    My understanding (and I've not done a ton of research so take it with a grain of salt), is that cranberry only helps sometimes, depending on the cause of the UTI (crystals being one common cause).  Ha more »
