    Tori has another cold laser treatment today, I feel like that is helping. She has an appointment with the orthopedic vet tomorrow at the vet specialty hospital, I don't know if they will do the PRP...

    Wow, your poor dog has really been through it! I wonder if the doxy is the right antibiotic for the septic arthritis, if that is what she has. Tori was on doxy for two weeks, but that was in...

    I am very glad to hear of your good experience with PCP!

    Tori is three years old, she is on supplements too- Ligaplex, Phycox, Dausequin with MSM, Tumeric, and gets a hard-boiled egg every day.

    I always wanted a litter of three, so I could name them Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy.

    Because, I think it is in the Bible..."Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me (or is it "you"?) and...
  5. Anyone used Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy for a dog?

    My beloved Irish Wolfhound Tori has recently (in June) had a bout of septic arthritis in her elbow. She had a high fever (104.5) and swelling and acute pain in her elbow. It was treated with two...

    Excuse me?

    Yes most breed rescues are run by breeders of that breed....and that is a bad thing in your opinion?

    I am a breeder who also does rescue, as do very many of the breeders I know.

    I think probably the shelter people just reacted to "He's a really big dog"! With the Irish Wolfhound guess. Plus, they know people respond positively to the wolfhound cross idea, so very often...

    Earl sounds like a fantastic dog!

    He is very handsome! However, as an Irish Wolfhound owner of 45 years, and a judge as well, I've got to say, I see no Irish Wolfhound characteristics in him at...

    I wish I had a hunting dog breed to train, let alone a herding breed, I would not know what to do!

    But you know, training one of the "off brand" breeds can also be very rewarding, in a different...

    I think it is fascinating!

    Apparently cats only shed it when they are young kittens?

    Very interesting!

    You can always count on Sapolsky to do something very interesting

    You guys are so wise to stay away from Irish Wolfhounds while you still can! I'm afraid it's too late for me.

    I also love Dobes and Borzoi!

    I like Spinone too!

    A friend who used to breed Irish Wolfhounds has pretty much switched over to Spinone. They seem like really nice dogs.

    I prefer really dark noses and pigment, though, and...

    I'm not really a fan of the bare-butted look, but it really wasn't that offensive in the ones I saw. Their coat is never supposed to be scissored at all for the show ring, just the back end etc...

    My breed for the past 45 years has been Irish Wolfhounds. I show, breed, obedience train, and judge them, and usually have eight or so. I cannot imagine life without them, and wouldn't want to.

    Planned C-section would be my vote too, not that you asked!

    It may be different with another breed, but I've known so many with big litters who get halfway or even almost all the way done, then...

    Oh my goodness!!!!

    I am really bad at counting....10-12!?

    Whew, that's a lot of puppies!! Fingers crossed she delivers them all safely!

    When are they due?

    Hey, I agree with everything you've said, with this exception:

    Generally I would agree to another breeding if there were no puppies or a singleton, with no fee, except if it was a dead frozen...

    PS another thing to consider with a co-ownership of a nice male is that you need to be in agreement about all the potential breedings. Unless you are certain you share the same standards of health...

    Personnally, I perfer not to co-own unless I know the people well, and that includes people who have puppies from me.

    You may be in a better position to take a puppy down the road, and then if you...

    Forgot to say.. If you are considering taking a male, wait til he has teeth (a correct bite) and testicles (two).

    If I were you, I would wait to see if there is a puppy in this litter you would want in any way or shape, or if you would prefer to take the stud fee.

    Hopefully your contract allows for you to...
