  1. Dog Health
    Hello, I hope everyone is doing well. I have a 12 year old German Shepard and Boxer mix, she is the sweetest thing on planet earth. She has had a long and healthy life with very little health issues. But in the past several months she has had just a terrible time, starting with vestibular...

    My schnauzer is 10 y/o and he’s starting to have these rough patches on his skin. He started biting down on one of them recently non stop. The area is now red with no fur. He has some black spots all over his skin but those have been appearing as he’s gotten older. I’m more concerned about the...

    My dog, 10 yr old catahoula mix, has had troubling symptoms the past few days. We have seen the Emergency vet and his regular vet already and are seeing a neurologist in a few days. He has been showing signs of old age: panting, a bit slower, and trouble jumping into the car within the past few...
  4. Introductions
    My 12 year old Toy Poodle has some welts on his skin. We live in a tropical area, with an overabundance of fleas, lice and ticks. He used to have a lot of these, and that may be one of the reasons why he has these welts (due to scratching). However, during the past 3 months he has been...

    Hi, My Dog is about 10 years old and very recently has started showing some weird signs that we are confused about. The past few days she has been having a lot of difficulty getting up after laying down or being seated for a long period of time. The first time it happened she woke up up...
  6. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi everyone! I just joined this site because I don't know where else to ask--though I hope to go through and maybe help others as well. My dog, Krystal, is extremely well behaved in most ways; never aggressive, knows commands, comes when called, etc. She barks unnecessarily sometimes, but the...
  7. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a 10yr old male Rat Terrier/Dochsund mix. He's normally very sweet, rarely gets in trouble (and if he does it's normally for using the restroom in the house), he barks at the doorbell/when someone knocks. August he had an inflamed disk in his neck that went away after the vet gave him an...
  8. Dog Grooming
    I'm looking for information and advice. I have an elderly (15yo) golden retriever in somewhat fragile health. A groomer just SHAVED him down today (apparently other clients like that. Not me!). A few questions: - how long until his coat begins to grow back, if ever? - I assume we will need...
  9. Dog Training and Behavior
    I love my 12 year old miniature pinscher, but lately she is the loudest dog on the block. I have another dog, a 6 yr old muggin (min pin/pug mix) and she's fairly quiet, but when my older dog barks(Cleo) she joins in sometimes too. Cleo has a deep bark, she sounds like a medium sized dog, you...
  10. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, We have recently got an American water spaniel puppy, Tessa, who is around 7 months old. We also have a 14 year old Britney Spaniel, Agnes, in our house as well. Now I understand that this breed of puppy is known to have food aggression and has attacked our older dog numerous times over...
  11. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hey everybody, I'm new to the forum here, but I'm starting to get a little concerned about my dog. She's a 12 year old German Shepherd/Boxer mix, and is by far the best dog I've ever had. She's exceptionally well trained, and we have a VERY tight bond together. She has been to the vet within...
  12. New Additions
    I want to preface this by saying although I'm asking for help for a friend of mine (and some friends to ALL of us), I'm NOT asking for money! Just a mere few seconds of your time. One of my closest friends works at "The Old Dog House" (Facebook page). They are a nonprofit 501(c)(3) public...

    I am new here, hopefully someone out there had a similar experience and is willing to share :) I have a Welsh I adopted, she is a healthy 14 years old, 16 lbs, not neutered, had 3 litters (I was told). She has several roundish, soft growths that I can feel under the skin, near her nipples (all...
