    Hi everyone :) I'm getting a rescue miniature poodle in the next few weeks and just wondered what the best dog food is for them? Initially I'll be feeding him rice and chicken for the first few days. Any advice would be great :) thanks!

    So I think many of us are already aware about how unclean and bad normal, cheap, commercial, dry kibble are for dogs. My family and I have been feeding our senior beagle some some more premium quality kibble, though I am not sure if it has much of a beneficial difference anymore. For the last...

    My dog, Hannah, almost died last week after, i believe, ingesting something unknown. Had diarrhea and vomited everywhere. Brought her to the hospital and found out she had pancreatitis. She stayed for 6 days on IVs, but she would not eat anything until just recently, thank God! She’s has had...

    A while ago, my friend came over to watch a movie and as soon as she saw my dog, she went to scoop him up and hug him. He’s very shy, and she’s met him a few times before, but not enough times for him to be very comfortable with her yet. This made him uncomfortable but after a few minutes he got...

    Hi guys, I recently got a Boston Terrier that suffers from allergy symtoms (redness on his face and belly + itchy eyes). I have put him on an elimination food trial by feeding him a pure duck food and planned to do this for 10 weeks. Now, after 3 weeks, the dog found the cat's food and ate...

    Hello, I posted a while back that I had adopted a Plotthound who was being extremely picky with her food. After MUCH trial and error, she was consistently eating her meals and subsequently gaining weight, you could no longer see her ribs and she actually looked healthy, her coat was shiny and...

    She's actually my boyfriends baby and we live together so she's become mine too. She got pretty sick like this before and he took her to his parents who live close to her vet for a few weeks so she could get better. Sally, the bulldog, was taken to the vet and they had no clue what was going...

    I am so lost. I’ve gone down the a rabbit hole and am overwhelmed. I have look at and priced so different foods it’s ridiculous. I’ll look at one, then another just to go back to the first and then again the third and them a fifth. Like I said overwhelmed. So my fist issue is choosing a brand...

    Hello everyone, my name is Joe, me and my partner both live and work in China and have rescued a dog a few months ago. For a while we were feeding him a basic diet of Pedigree dog food as this was the only recognizable brand we could find, and have been informed that Chinese ones were on the...

    Hi! I am looking for a breed-specific dog food recipe by William Cusick. He has passed away and the website is gone. I know he sold several breed-specific recipes as I have one for another dog breed and he had one for BICHON FRISE. Does anyone in here have this recipe book and could scan it? I...

    Hi, my dog Lottie is 16 and has had kidney disease so we have to be careful with her diet. We have two wet foods and one dry biscuit specially formulated for dogs with kidney disease but unfortunately she's very picky. She constantly wants variety and regularly will turn her nose up to it to go...

    Hello forumers, I really really need your help! I have a 13.5 year old Jack Russell Terrier who has been eating dry food all her life. Just this morning, the vet suspects she has acute pancreatitis but could be something worse. I read that pancreatitis is more a lot more common in dogs that eat...

    Hello everyone! My mom recently got a new puppy, a tibetan terrier. She's the sweetest thing, but at around the 13 week mark she started licking and chewing her hind legs a lot. We took her to the vet and they found struvite crystals in her urine, but could not prove a UTI (although wouldn't it...

    Help! My puppy has swamp butt! Sorry for the brutally graphic description, but I don't know what else to call it. He is a Shorkie named Boris, and he is eating like a Great Dane! My boyfriend (who is chronically unemployed) stays home with him all day, every day and God only knows what he is...

    Hi Dog People, Took my 2 year old hound/shepard mix to the vet the other day and sure enough she's over weight. The made a suggestion of stopping the Milk Bone treats and switching to these. These weight control biscuits are only 19 calories and Morgan doesn't seem to mind them one bit! Have...

    Hi, My dog is a 3.5 yro female Newfie mix. She was losing weight slowly over time and the vet could not figure it out with all the usual testing. I managed to stop the weight loss and add a couple pounds. So she's hovering around 73.5 pounds right now. The vet says she should be ideally around...

    t's been a while since I've been active on this site! So here goes, I'm currently fostering a male, stray cat who we suspect has been abandoned. His name is Milo. Long story short, I plan on adopting him but I have to wait. We don't know when but we predict within the year. My questions are...
