    I had a JRT who was just like this. Chicken and corn were her big triggers. I also think probiotics are good, and for my girl, she was on Pepcid regularly. She just tended to have a very acidic tummy...

    Aw, I have an old Chessie too. She's just going on 12, but comes with a lot of health issues that are impacting her already. Biggest issue right now is a 1-2 punch of hip dysplasia really getting...

    We have not tried Previcox. Not sure if it just hasn't been considered, but she also has only one damaged kidney, so maybe that's why not? I'll ask.

    No breathing issues I've noticed but that's...
  4. What am I missing? Senior dog with hind end issues

    Sorry for the novel - I have an 11.5 year old female Chessie. She has a host of other medical issues, but has always been quite sound joint and limb wise. Three weeks ago, I came home and her hind...

    So sorry for your loss. She was obviously much loved and led a great life.

    I've had a handful of Chessies in my life, a couple I owned, a few that were fosters. I wouldn't classify any of them as feeling greasy, any more than any other retrievers. Their coat is different,...

    I have the queen of sensitive stomachs, and she's done very well on Acana, both the single protein like lamb and apple, or their blends like grasslands, ranchlands, etc. Plus, as noted, I like that...

    I have third-hand knowledge of two people who'd had dogs die from collar strangulation. As in, they were a friend of a friend. One was an incident where the dogs got tangled playing or fighting while...

    I would bet the people that see me on walks with my dog think she's really awful because I don't really let anyone meet her. A halti or muzzle is a good start. I think you have to camouflage yourself...

    I swear by probiotics. I have a dog with lots of food sensitivities, and she had months of chronic, explosive diarrhea. Fun times. She had multiple rounds of metronidazole, multiple fecals with no...

    I had an Irish Setter who had a jaw growth, around age 12. We removed the growth but it came right back. He was in great health, so the oncologist recommended removing half of his lower jaw. He...

    I've been thinking about this. The only dog she really ever had to play with was the male Chessie I mentioned before, and I think she just followed all his rules. Getting bossy or grumpy with him...

    Ha ha. I thought about saying that - do I just accept I've got a female Chessie and move on from here? I used to have the best male Chessie who was the consummate hall monitor, and enforced perfect...

    Multiple dogs and toys

    I've got an 11-year old female Chessie. She's an only dog and has generally been a pretty perfect dog so I'm feeling rusty when it comes to reading body language and modifying her behavior.

    First, I'm sorry that you are having to make this decision. It's a tough one, and it's easy to flip-flop on whether it's right or not. I waited too long on my last little old lady dog, and that's...

    It's unfortunate when rescues enact rules that prevent viable adoptions. The majority of them are truly trying to weed out adopters that really aren't equipped to deal with a dog, they just happened...

    Not ideal for sure. I have to leave for a funeral, so there's just no flexibility on my end.

    The caretaker would be her normal dog walker she sees every week, plus my friend who would visit her...

    Leaving dog home instead of boarding?

    I have to go out of town unexpectedly, from Thursday to Saturday night. My normal dog sitter is unavailable and my dog doesn't board well. Plus if I board her I can't get her until Monday.

    She was lovely. I'm so sorry for your loss. It is so hard to do, but it is truly a gift we can offer our pets, a peaceful passing with their loving human nearby.

    Hugs to you.

    I don't know if I really know my ideal breed. I've had three - an Irish Setter, two JRTs, and two Chesapeake Bay Retrievers.

    The Irish Setter was a gem of a free dog. Not that bright but so good...

  25. Armchair Vets - would you be concerned about this?

    I have a 10-year old Chessie. She's been diagnosed with dysplasia and has had a bit of a hitch in her gait for the past 18 months or so. No ataxia in the rear, but uneven wearing of nails.
