    How did vet discover the arthritis? X-ray, physical response to exam?

    Rimadyl is one of several NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories) used for arthritis in dogs. They lessen pain by reducing...

    He looks like an Earl. I'd guess Rottweiler and German Shepherd, don't see Dane in him (I'm hardly an expert, but Danes have heads like anvils) Lot of monster Rottweilers out there to account for...

    I posted it mostly because I was so tickled that Piper is going home (for now and, probably, forever) and that the judge was so sublimely dismissive of the rescue woman, who richly, richly deserved...
  4. The Sheltie went home! (rescue v. owner saga)

    A Shetland Sheepdog, Piper, got lost on Easter weekend 2014, and was picked up, taken to a public shelter. The holiday weekend screwed up the search, and (very long story short) the dog ended up...

    I used to appear reasonably sane while walking my dog. I would speak to her sometimes, but we'd be walking and it would be things like "Hey, Dog, look at the cat!" If I maybe spoke to her more than...

    Generally, I dislike women buying dogs with protection as a primary goal, but I must say in your case it seems reasonable. What a neighbor! Remember you're in the honeymoon period with the dog, who...

    It's free and available, and dog food was making a certain elite of dog owners crazy/neurotic even before most of the major makers got caught indirectly killing dogs with tainted Chinese ingredients....

    Thanks for all the ideas! I'm mulling currently. I am struggling with the opposing temptations to:

    A) Wait and see. Basically, conclude the heat and humidity are pushing her very hard, even...

    I love the herding dogs aka the collies (all of them, not just the Lassies). I like the spirit, the energy, the responsiveness and the joi de vivre. Also, the fur. Shaggy = adorable. And I like...

    I'm too cheap to be very brand-conscious. But there are some things. Most of them are things that just don't work as well (or at all) when I've tried cheaper brands. Like Glide floss or Post-It...

    She's not drinking more than usual, or peeing more. And she doesn't pee a lot inside, it's just that she's always been 110% housebroken, so the peeing in the house is huge. She will still pee...

    Well, I took in a sample, and the infection's cleared up, so we'll complete the antibiotics and all should be well on that score.

    Unfortunately, that means her lingering symptoms are coming from...

    Yeah, that's my collie mix. I can almost hear her thinking "CLINGY!" and "NEEDY!" when I try to get too close. She's elderly and instead of all the walking, I try to hang out with her quietly in...

    How fast do UTIs clear up?

    My 16yo dog has a UTI and is taking Baytril. She started 10 days ago, and I'm not sure I'm seeing a big improvement yet. She has always been 110% housebroken, so one of the reasons I did the urine...

    Never heard of it, clever. Probably not the best idea to make corn generally, given the plastics issue, but I don't think I'd be all that worried about one picnic. Then again, with the air...

    Jingles! It's a bad time of year for arthritis, all that humidity. My old dog's been quieter than usual the last few days. Maybe yours is having an arthritis flare.

    Jingles for you too. ...

    What a cute dog!

    Oh, and WTH was going on there for a while with the kinda over-egged reactions to OP's every coment? I'm reading it thinking "Seriously? We're overreacting to product reviews...

    Jingles. I'm the chicken-bone-nazi in my house, bundling them up and transporting them to the outdoor garbage can immediately after dinner. I've been lucky with bones, but dog once grabbed 5lbs of...

    Probably a better idea than adopting a young dog - generally, if a dog has lived to be 7, it's a nice dog. Although these days, what with insane 'rescues' obsessed with never euthanizing, that's...

    Ditto the rake and the slicker for a dog with undercoat. I managed to own 2 long-haired dogs without knowing this, but finally figured it out thanks to YouTube on how to groom a collie. Miracles! ...

    On the supplement side, fish oil is supposed to be very good for joints. I was giving my older dog Nordic Naturals in capsule form, have switched over to liquid (on the food) of a different brand. ...

    Thanks to OP, who definitely saved that dog from a horrible death and likely saved an owner from grief.

    PETA is not an organization which has my support, but Winograd is filth. His influence and the no-kill/lotsa-suffering movement have caused such widespread problems for animals and those who love...

    If you recall Oprah's Book Club, most were the kind of popular book I almost always dislike. Middlebrow fiction, I do not like thee.
