Onions, garlic, grapes & chocolate are bad for dogs; especially chocolate which poison becomes in their system. They are not able to absorb it. Beware of chicken bones. Salty, sweet (high in sugar content), or fatty should be avoided as well. Some dogs are allergic to some particular foods. If you see your dog vomiting or having diarrhea chances are that he is either allergic or has a stomach virus. Yes, dogs can catch a flue & pass the stomach flu. Just like humans, they pass worm,…Continue

Dog bronchitis usually affects small to medium-sized breeds that are over one year of age. The causes of dog bronchitis are not always known. However, researchers say that cigarette smoke and urban pollution could be one of the causes that lead to bronchitis. The overpowered immune system of a dog with frequent viral or bacterial infection is most of the time unwilling to protect the dog from such infection. Therefore symptoms such as wheezing, loss of appetite, frequent gagging and…Continue

There have been times in my life when my dog has been my friend and only companion. At least, that’s the way I have felt. Even family and friends will never understand you as well as your dog do. I don’t think I can scientifically prove this. All I have is my life’s experiences. However, researchers have found out interesting things about how pets help you have a better quality of life. For example, spending time with your pet…Continue

I groomed my oldest golden Ally who is 11 years old and still looks & acts like a puppers instead of 11 years old, and as I shaved her coat off since its been so so hot here in California, I felt so many lumps on her back. I touch her all the time but her coat is so thick and she reminds me of a hairy polar bear. So when her coat was only 1 1/2 thick, well her back felt like a bumpy road. She has one huge lump right dab in the middle of her…Continue

Donovan got a "Brave Patient Award" from the vets at Kensington Vet Hosp.!
The vet who did the surgery told me that he's the best boxer she's ever seen. She also said he did really well in surgery.
Donovan will be eating canned dog food for the next two weeks. He got the two gingival flaps removed and sixteen teeth so he's got a really raw mouth. He also has a bottle of pain meds so he's feeling no pain.
He was pretty out of it the night after the surgery and both of…Continue

The surgery which was scheduled for Tuesday the 9th of August did not happen. Our ride never showed up nor did she call.
I have rescheduled the surgery for Friday the 19th of August. This time I have rides with two of my friends. One is dropping us off at the vet's. The other is picking us up afterwards.
All prayers and positive thoughts appreciated. If you did so on the 9th, don't worry prayers and positive thoughts don't spoil.

Animals have allergies as well. Every day substances such as pollen, animal dander, mold spores, etc will deprive your dog from a healthy living. The most common signs a dog will show when having an allergic reaction are face rubbing, biting, scratching, and chewing the skin. Most allergies are inherited but they can be prevented by avoiding the causes thereof. A physical examination and taking some lab tests might help. Dogs can…Continue

Food prices are increasing, and our climate is rapidly changing. I’m not a preacher of global warming but I hope we ever change and let compassion warm our hearts. The amount of dogs taken to the shelters each year is increasing by the millions. The excuse is not having plenty of food to feed them or lack of resources... There are very little chances for these dogs to be adopted and euthanasia is applied. Our world is changing. Dog shelters have always been there but now they are increasing.…Continue

A Dog For Jesus
I wish someone had given Jesus a dog
As loyal and loving as mine
To sleep by His manger and gaze in His eyes
And adore Him for being divine.
As our Lord grew to manhood His faithful dog
Would have followed Him all through the…
