    If it's close, you can just punch an extra hole for now. The straps tend to stretch a bit over time.

    Definitely talk to the vet. Our 15 year old lab has been on proin for 7 years, and has issues twice since then. The first a few years ago was an UTI and antibiotics fixed it. A couple months ago...

    This is the one circumstance where my dog does NOT get a warning buzz, or any verbal input from me. I don't want him to avoid horses because I tell him to, I want him to think horse=shock. ...

    No, all three of mine are healthy and drink a ton of water. The males drink more than the female, but all three drink more than the past kitties. However, the barn cat that lives to drink is a...

    My dog also likes to wiggle closer for sit/stand/down distance work. I started using a mat so it was clear to him that he had to stay in one place, not move closer. He doesn't need the mat anymore,...

    Yep, most of the horses in my barn now have a smartpak sheet just to go on top of their other blankets. My trainer has returned 7 so far this winter!

    Have you actually tried perfect prep on him? Chances are it won't make any difference. I used to board at a barn that perfect prepped anything with any spark, and IMO it didn't do anything for any...

    I used two reins to event my horse (novice). A few clinicians mentioned that and suggested a converter or taping the reins, but I'd just say I prefer two reins, and that was the end. Two reins are...

    Cheap, lots of size options and colors, and they stay in place through everything. I use them for my old dog because the snow hurts her arthritic old paws and they work...

    Have you considered ulcers? Finicky and hard keeper both indicate ulcers.

    Other than that, oil, cool calories, and beet pulp keep my hard keepers in good weight. Obviously in addition to high...

    Depends on where you live. I'd have to be ridiculously fit (and have way too much spare time) to bike 40 mile round trip to school and and extra 20 mile round trip for work

    Third? the guess of skin tag. My almost 15 year old dog has them everywhere. We got one removed that near her eye because it was bothering her, but the others we just leave alone.

    Both of mine get rubs from their saddle pads. It's not noticeable under saddle and it's not a saddle fit issue, as both horses get seen by an excellent saddle fitter. It doesn't bother them...

    If I'm expecting bucking/bolting/spooking I prefer my dressage saddle. The long leg position and deeper seat help me stay centered (and stay on!)

    I'd say it's a mix of how well the saddle fits...
