  1. Neutered Incision Healing Properly?

    Dog Health
    My 8 month old puppy got neutered 6 days ago and this is my first time neutering a dog and I have no idea what to look out for. He has been wearing his Elizabeth collar 24/7, but he’s very energetic still and loves to jump. We try our best to stop him from jumping but his favorite spot is on top...
  2. Sudden Onset of Crate Aggression

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi all, My husband and I have a 4 month old male Wheaten Terrier named Otis. We got Otis when he was 10 weeks old, and he immediately responded well to sleeping and being in a crate while we are at work.

    Hi. My pup just got neutered last Thursday, July 21st (so it has been 9 days). Today is the first day he has been without his e-collar. Is this how the incision site is supposed to look/is it okay? There were no external stitches, just surgical glue holding the incision together. This is my...

  6. Using E-collar to scratch stitches?!

    Dog Health
    Hello everyone, my 7 month old Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Pickles, went in yesterday to be neutered. As expected he is in a little pain and the stitches seem to be itching him. I had the vet put an E-collar on him so he wouldn't chew but now I'm running into a problem. He's a corgi and he's got a...

    I have a two year old Saint Bernard named Oba and a 3 year old Dingo mix named Boomer. Oba, the Saint Bernard has yet to be fixed, while Boomer, the Dingo mix, has been fixed since he was a puppy.

  8. 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...
