    Well you know, despite the fact that the bitch produced a seizuring dog, bred to a dog who has produced epilepsy in at least a couple of cases, if you bred your dog to this bitch and there were...

    I believe I read somewhere, with humans, who supposedly are not inbred except in certain circumstances, the incidence of epilepsy is about 1.4%.

    It is a very hard thing to know what is the right...

    Oh, absolutely!

    But the difficulty with workIng with small closed gene pools is in weighing the different risks.

    Oh gosh that is a hard thing.

    Yes, it does suck, to have to weigh so many things when you have a limited gene pool.

    It is a factor, how much of a hideous thing it is to treat in each breed. ...

    I know many sighthounds who lure course or do straight racing who are great with their cats, indoors and out.

    Just thought that was an interesting thing, with the lure coursing apparently causing...

    I actually know a Boston Terrier that killed a chicken!

    And it doesn't have to be actual predation that sets them off. I have a friend who took her hound lure coursing (they chase a white plastic...

    That is so interesting!

    What did the temps do after hitting 97.2? I have always heard, they will gradually increase until whelping occurs. If that is true, your bitches' increase must have been...

    I should clarify, epilepsy is particularly difficult to treat in my breed. They often need at least two medications in large enough doses that the hound is often sedated and otherwise affected, and...

    Gosh that is a can of worms. It seems the mode of inheritance differs for different breeds.

    In an abundance of caution, I would not breed a bitch or male who had produced it. I also am aware...

    I do the X-ray to count puppies, because with the wolfhounds, it isn't so easy to palpate and know whether there is another one in there. Last time, we did an ultrasound at 28 days, had 4 puppies...

    Thanks, Horsegal, the quote was what the opthalmologist who used to work at the vet school gave off the top of his head for the vet school to do the shunt surgery.

    I doubt surgery would be...

    Intact bitches are also not a problem for me, I am in the same boat as you as I have a four year old intact IW bitch I show in Obedience but not breed, so I could spay her. I was talking to a well...

    The dosage for decreased CSF production I found was 10 mg once a day for dogs under 44 pounds, 20 mg for over 44 pounds.

    I don't think her improvement is due to the omeprazole yet, I just now gave...

    It is totally not true that a dog that killed a cat would necessarily be likely to kill a child.

    Many dogs kill small and large animals, but are very inhibited about predatory behavior directed to...

    How is the dog supposed to know that the squirrel- sized (or groundhog-sized) animal they killed, in their own yard, is in fact someone's beloved pet? Unless it was socialized to cats, which those of...

    I will definitely pick some up tomorrow!

    The prenatal vitamin I gave to Vale, the dam, had DHA in it, in fact it was two separate pills.

    Isn't that what is in the "Smart Puppy" dog foods? ...

    Yes thanks Squish, a Neuro consult sounds like a good idea.

    No insurance here with multple dogs.

    Appreciate the info though! Thanks very much. The opthalmologist said no treatment if hydrocephalic but I had read about Omeprazole.

    Thanks for the info!

    Vanga has always been really large, but of course she was a singleton.

    Yes she has seemed a little slow developing, I always rationalized it was because she was a...

    Thanks! Yes I wondered about that, the neuro consult.

    They said the shunt would be 8K at least, and in her case, with the small optic nerve , would likely not restore her vision, though it might...
