  1. Dog Health
    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...

    Sup guys! I just was wondering if you guys had any bed recommendations for a 9 year old cocker spaniel? Preferably an orthopedic bed. thanks!
  3. General Dog Discussion
    Hi! My female dog Bella (10 years old) has recently become very aggressive towards my other dog Molly (also 10 years old). Bella is my boyfriends dog, and Molly is mine. We moved in together about 1 year ago, so the dogs have been living together for 1 year. When we first moved in, they got...
  4. Dog Training and Behavior
    My dog Kilroy (10 years) has always resource guarded his toys, treats, and food from other dogs, and I have always made it a point to separately feed the dogs in the house when it's time. Unfortunately, last night my mother and I awoke to the sound of a loud scuffle and found my dog pinning her...

    Hello everyone! A cocker spaniel puppy joined my family over the holidays. She is hyper, still nipping and biting, very curious, and persistent. She's also very sweet and loving. One of her favorite things to do is get in my old dog's face and bark in an attempt to entice my dog to play with...

    I adopted a senior dog a few months ago. Things are going really great in general. However, when we're inside she constantly wants my attention. I think she's bored. She doesn't seem to know how to occupy herself with anything but food and someone petting her. She's not at all into toys (even...
  7. Dog Training and Behavior
    This is my first time posting so hopefully it’s in the right place.... My 11 year old fur baby has cancer and he’s having incontinence troubles. I’ve tried doggie diapers etc but he’s an odd shape so they don’t stay on.... so my question is is it possible to train an old dog who’s house trained...

    My family and I have been all over the internet to try and find an answer for what is wrong with our eldest dog. Todd is an 11-12 year old Lab/possibly Malamute mix. While he has been slowing down a bit with his old age, he has been relatively good health-wise. He has, however, recently...

    Hello, all! :) I have a 10-year-old Corgi-Jack Russell mix, named Skippy. Due to his mild anxiety, he managed to chew up his back foot so much in this past couple of months that he ended up getting an infection! As a result, my veterinarian put him on Prednisone and Cephalexin. Skippy went...
  10. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi all, I am new to the forum because I'm desperately looking for some help with my doggo situation. I have a 14 year old female dachshund, Suki- sweetest old thing you ever did see. I got her when I was a teenager and she has been at my mom's house since. She used to be house-trained but has...
  11. Dog Training and Behavior
    I'm desperate for advice. Our son is 3 and full of energy. That said, he's a good boy and 99% of the time, he's gentle with our two dogs. (what kid is 100%?) Libby (8 yr old Basset hound) has ALWAYS been "grumpy". She is a house pet and fixed. She has a very low tolerance for anyone or...

    I feel this needs a little background history: My 10 year old mix breed dog has been having on and off "panics" since September 2015. I had recently relocated and knew that the change would take time to adjust to but I think this is more than just adjusting. I stayed with friends upon moving...
  14. Dog Training and Behavior
    My boyfriends 10 year old Keeshond is occasionally urinating when told to come eat. The food has not changed. He looks excited when I am preparing the food, but refuses to eat it when it is placed in his spot and then will urinate on the floor when told to come eat. If I leave it out, he will...

    Our black lab, Valor, will be 11 years old next month and about a month ago, he started pooping in the house. (note: he is a seeing eye dog and went through rigorous training so that this would never be an issue, so we don't think it's a behavioral problem.) When the issue began, it was diarrhea...
  16. Dog Training and Behavior
    To my complete horror, I have discovered that my 10-year-old Beagle mix eats the kitty poop out of the (hooded) litter boxes. I don't know how long this has been going on, but obviously now that I know he does this I want to stop it ASAP. Does anyone have any advice for nipping this behavior in...
  17. Housetraining
    Our senior dog is pooping in our house for some reason. She used to be very potty trained and never had problems with using the doggy door. First we noticed it was diarrhea, took her to the vet, started her on a bland diet and antibiotics but she was still pooping all over our upstairs even...
  18. Dog Food
    It has become painfully obvious that my little dog has been eating too much junk food and not enough real food. We didn't notice that he'd gained so much weight until he tore his ACL and went to the vet. In between visits he has gained over 2 lbs. That's a lot for him. He spent most of his...

    I have a 15 year old Australian cattle dog/border collie mix. This morning she woke up with a head tilt and loss of balance. About a year ago she had the same symptoms. After a couple of days her head tilt worsened and new symptoms appeared - walking in circles, unable to eat or drink and...

    I had intended to take my 12 yr old corgi with me when I move next month. But right now, he mainly stays outside, he has a big yard to run around in, and I have help to buy dog food and such. I will be moving to a small apartment with 3 other people, who will all be working or at school most of...
