I remember when I first got Thatcher, my first young puppy, and every single little issue I would take him to the vet. upset stomach (which was allll the time, before I figured out he was grain intolerant), scratch, puppy acne, so many different stool sample tests, sniffles, hurt paw— you name it.
It’s funny because it’s like being the mom of a new born baby— everything is a huge life threatening issue. Since having Ivy, the third puppy I’ve raised, I’m just like … eh. Walk it off, you’ll live :P
Hey I’m going to post this on my dash so my dogblog followers can see and reblog to point you in the right direction. I have toooons of dog blogs I follow, I don’t want to miss any that I think would be what you’re looking for :P
So blog away my peeps— enlighten this wonderful person to the world of blogging about our beloveds!
Juno love her knuckle bone so much that she was too nervous and excited to eat it so I had to put it away :(
If she doesn’t know where to start and becomes worried that some other dog will take it, then she simply won’t eat it. She will lay away from it and guard it. High reward treats will start a fight between the two so I’ll wait and give it to her tomorrow
Actiflex 4000 horse supplement works great for dogs with joint pain! It’s a horse supplement but works better for dogs and is way cheaper than dog supplements.
I’d also try to reduce grain in his diet, since grain and even potatoes increases inflammation in joints which leads to more pain. Oh also, make sure you keep his weight down— if anything keep him underweight. It’s better for his joints since he won’t have to carry around all of that excess weight.
