  1. Greyhound for someone with dog allergies

    New Additions
    Hi everyone, I'm looking at getting a dog in the next few weeks. My boyfriend's allergies can flare up around certain dogs, my mum's English pointer for example. He's fine around his mum's cockerpoos as poodles are known to be a hypoallergenic breed. I'm aware that no breed is truly...
  2. Allergy Shots/Immunotherapy for Dogs

    Dog Health
    Hi everyone! A little over a week ago my dog Mia was stung by a bee and had a pretty severe allergic reaction (pale gums and vomiting). We rushed her to the ER and luckily she is ok now! Our vet recommended doing immunotherapy (aka allergy shots) to lessen her reactions. To my knowledge they...

  8. tears in her eyes

    Dog Health
    So I was wondering do dogs cry? My dog always has like tears in her eyes and under her eyes are always wet when she is awake and asleep. Is this something I should be worried about? Do you think dogs cry and if so why would she cry even when she is with me sleeping or even when she is super...

    Hi Dog Lovers, I am having some very big problems with my labrador. I love her dearly but lately with the scratching and rubbing butt on ground and scratching back on snow outside--our vet seems to think she has allergies to her food. She did test her for environmental allergies but she came...
