Hey there everyone,

My girlfriend and I saw this dog on our trip through Italy in a town called Matera. We loved this dog's breed the minute we saw it and are thinking more and more seriously about raising one.

Of course we first need to find out what breed it is! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I use to coat Brooklyn's pills in peanut butter before I gave them to her. The kids also use to give her a spoonful of it for 20 minutes of entertainment, but I just read an article about how bad it can be for your dog and can cause allergies. There are also a lot of treats out there that are peanut butter so I would be careful of those too. I haven't heard this before and just thought some of you might be as interested as me. Here is a link to the article: http://www.petwave.com/Dogs/Health/Food-Allergies.aspx

What can you tell me about the rough collie that is not typically written in a dog breed profile about them? (I am utterly in love with the breed and would like to know more- thank you!)

My dog seems to have an upset stomach, shes been eating grass to throw up and just is not herself. She had diarrhea but that has stopped. All tests came back negative for anything( blood test, fecal, xray) The vet suggested an expensive barium x ray but I cant afford it. She still has bursts of energy and you would think she is completely fine, and then 5 minutes later goes to eat grass. She doesn't eat it as much as she was but its been 5 days now and shes still not 100%. The vet said I give her Pepcid so I have but I cant even tell if its helping her. Shes also been on a bland diet. Does anyone know what could be wrong?

First and foremost I'd like to thank you for taking the time to read this story: The street on which I live has a number of strays running around, breeding by the litters. I put out food and water everyday for them and although I truly wish I could keep them all, this little fellow who I have named 'Bonzo' was scampering around my backyard. With two other cats of my own, Tigerlily and my little fighter of a feline Scooter (who was born with an enlarged heart and asthma). I was able to bathe Bonzo, feed him, and look after him for a few days. After the 3rd day the poor little guys health was not improving. The other morning his health hit an all time low, I rushed him to the vegetarian hospital where the vet told me, that by the time he went back to check on him, he would be gone but Bonzo had another idea and that was to LIVE. They put him on oxygen, gave him cortisone shots, and a number of other antibiotics. The vet, being a business structure all in all asked what the budget was for this little guy and for the life of me I wasn't able to put a price to his question. He now has now been at the vets for the past two days. He's been in and out of a coma but he is a fighter with a fighting chance. I ask whomever is reading this to take the time to consider donating to help to continue to save his life. Not one to ask for hand outs, he has me by the heart. Any donation, nothing is too small. Any questions or concerns please feel free to ask. PLEASE HELP SAVE BONZO! He is currently at: VCA Adler Animal Hospital and Pet Resort in North Hills, CA Call and ask about Bonzo Phone: 818-893-6366 Phone: 818-891-4472 Below is the link to his fundraiser picture included: https://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/help-save-bonzo/216777 Thank you for your time. Much love to you and yours.

Hi my name is Saffron, I am a 21 year old student who has a very limited time to finish up my research paper. It is targeted at the physiological health problems that may be breed specific via Evan's Index. Evan's Index is a measurement tool to categorize certain breed easier for me. So, for example, Boxer and a Pug are classed as Brachycephalic. German Shepards as Mesaticephalic, and Grey hounds as Dolichocephalic. What I am interested in, is if there is a correlation between indices and health problems that reoccur. For example; GSD's suffer with hip dysplasia, etc. If you could participate in my questionnaire and enter your dog in, that would be brilliant. It is all confidential and I do not need to know your name, or your dogs. If you are interested, please email petersonsaffron@gmail.com and I will forward the questionnaire to you. 


Kind Regards, 

Saffron Peterson.

I have a little hound named Jackson. He is 11 months old, 1 year on May 23rd. We adopted him, so we aren't sure what kind of dog he is, but I work at a kennel and we have an idea that he is a fox hound- coon hound mix. He has been a very good dog, but when we are on walks, he gets aggressive towards bicycles, motorcycles, and some cars. I have no idea how to train that out of him. He has a shock collar, and I have shocked him when this happens, but that makes no difference to him. My manager thinks he is trying to protect me, and maybe he is. She says to wait and he might grow out of it. I am afraid that if I wait, he will be too old to train it. Help?

my puppy is 4 mos. old. a yorkie. vet diagnosed her with pda, opening in heart. she can only live up to a year if not treated with surgery which is very costly. has anyone ever had a dog with this or has had the surgery. can they live longer with the surgery. what is the success rate

Hello. 


Just introducing myself. I'm jay and cats are cute11

I am doing to just give the details, the first Discussion I typed timed out because it was too long, lol.

I have a 12 year old American Short Hair, 19 Lbs, indoor only.  Has had a senior check up with 2 follow up vets visits in the last 2 months. He is a special diet and has had tests to rure out that he  has diabetes because of his weight .
He has been licking himself bald, often resulting in bleeding. Vet said he has OCD and prescribed Kitty Prozac which leaves him being doped up. He is still licking non stop. He often jumps up and meows like something bit him (which it has not). He also had a recent steroid shot to help, which it has not. 
Two weeks ago he started to pee outside the cat box. I have had him for 5 years (daughters cat- new grand baby is allergic) and he has never done this. So now I have to baby gate him in the tiled laundry room where his cat box (and food and water of course) instead of him having the usual run of his kingdom. There has been no changes in our home to upset him.
I am extremely sad at the thought of having to put him down, but believe in quality of life. Can I have some advice or opinions. I apologize about rambling just trying to get all details in.
Thanks
