  1. Urgent help! My dog hasn't been to the bathroom in days

    Dog Health
    Hi! Hoping you could help me. I have a four-year-old Hungarian Vizsla called Mouse. She was spayed 3 days ago. The operation went well. She is drinking water and eating but not in her normal quantities. She HATES the bandage. It freaks her out so she pretty much spends all day lying down...
  2. Vastectomy vs Castration

    Dog Health
    I'll be getting my puppy in mid August. I plan on having him altered, however I'm unsure how. This will be my very first dog, so I was wondering if everyone would give me an idea of the pros and cons you and your boys encountered and with what procedure, and if you chose one and had a less then...
  3. To neuter or not to neuter...

    New Additions
    I have two dogs, both about a year old (exact age unknown since they're rescues), and I'm not sure if I should neuter or not. I live in the Dominican Republic where people as a whole don't much care for dog health. There are very little vets avaliable, even fewer with actual degrees, so there...
  4. When Spaying/Neutering, Is Timing Really Everything?

    General Dog Discussion
    When I first adopted Trucker I was told by our vet that I was lucky he had not been Neutered as a puppy but rather only been Neutered when he was pulled by the local Rescue that I adopted him from. She said that a dog needs to reach puberty before being altered in order to avoid health...
  5. Will neutering help correct destructive behavior?

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I live in a 2BR apartment with a small yard. We have 15 month old black male Labrador, who was raised here since 6 weeks old puppy. He is intact but not aggressive. We did not neuter him until now since he was young and there is some discussion about the side-effects of that procedure before the...
  6. Spay Help

    Dog Health
    My puppy is a female and we were wanting to get her spayed, but we want to know the best and earliest time to spay her. She is 1/4 bulldog and 3/4 lab. She is about 14 weeks/3.5 months old. Our male dog is over 3 years old, and I saw him trying to mate. He often does this with all dogs due...
  7. Bringing home newly neutered dog to 2 other dogs

    New Additions
    Hello Everyone! I adopted a dog from the shelter yesterday who is getting neutered tomorrow (Tuesday) and I am bringing him home on Wednesday. I know that his activity is supposed to be limited while healing from the surgery, but I am concerned about how to accomplish this since we already have...
  8. Why does my dog have accidents (usually when excited) after he was neutered?

    Dog Health
    My puppy is a Maltese/Shih-Tzu mix and he is 8 months old. He was perfectly house trained and never had accidents. I leave a pad out in the living room of my apartment and anytime he needs to urinate he goes to his pad, circles a few times and goes on the pad. He was good about it for a few...
  9. My dog won't let me put his "cone of shame" on

    Dog Training and Behavior
    My bloodhound just got neutered yesterday and his surgery spot looks like it's a little swollen, which I was told is normal, but he wants to lick the incision spot so I went out and bought him an ecollar to prevent him from licking while I'm away at work but he REFUSES to let me put it on him...
  10. Wont leave stitches alone!!

    Dog Health
    Alright so I posted something similar to this just a few days ago about my dog Pickles. He's a 7 month old welsh corgi and he was neutered on Thursday. Thursday was totally fine, he didn't try and pick at it or anything but then the following days have just been so hard it's getting ridiculous...
  11. My fluffy cheater, two-timing no more!

    Dog Training and Behavior
    We have been over a week with no escape attempts! Operating under the assumption that the other family was feeding in the morning, which is why he only tries to get out around breakfast time, we started feeding. We wanted the food to be special, so in the mornings after he has gone out we let...
  12. Post neuter incision image - is it okay?

    Dog Health
    My 12 mo old Great Dane is 11 days post-neuter, and his incision still seems awfully puffy and pink to me. But he's the first dog I've ever had neutered, since all our previous dogs were rescues and already altered. He is eating, drinking, and playing normally - seems totally fine. But I'm...
  13. Setback with timid dog after neutering

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I'm just wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience. I'm not new to having dogs, just new to having a timid dog. He's been through a lot in his first year. He came to live with my husband and I in December. He has always been shy and timid, but had really started to come out of his...
  14. Does this post neuter photo look okay?

    Dog Health
    My dog was neutered on Friday and two days later, this is what it looks like. The swelling has gone down, but I'm worried about the redness and the one side worries me. I don't want to bother the vet, because I am probably over reacting. What do you guys think?:confused:
  15. Is it likely that my dog is pregnant?

    General Dog Discussion
    We have had a disaster. Me and my dog (entire female) are staying with my parents at the moment, who had three dogs (1 neutered male, 1 neutered female and one entire female) which was fine. They then rescued a stray, who was an entire male. Suddenly, both entire females came into heat. So...
  16. Chihuahua's neutered and E-collar is failing!

    Dog Health
    My two chihuahua boys were neutered on Friday Feb. 24th. Today is the third day and it looks pretty bad. They both are wearing the E-Collar. But, in is this incident they are using the collar to "itch" their incision/"sack." It is getting very red and swollen. I spoke with the vet and they won't...
