As long as you understand that a dog cannot live on chicken and liver.

Personally, I would try a trial of synthroid for a couple of days, half a dose even. 25 mcg twice a day for 2 or 3 days,...

Metacam doesn't need to be weaned, don't think Clomicalm needs to be either.

I take it you haven't done a synthroid trial on her?

As for diet, you mention she's now on white chicken - is she...

I buy whatever I can get to be honest, feeding a small dog raw anything can be a pain.

I'll buy full pork rib racks, cut them up, leave some meat on and it's a meal for him. There is nothing left...

You're on the right track with his teeth, nothing like raw bones as a toothbrush. Don't worry, give the turkey neck and let him have at it. My minpin is raw fed, and eats pretty much anything now,...

Try a regular leash and collar. I find many of these gimmick leashes and harnesses will cause more frustration in the dog than anything. It's like prong collars, not a big fan but there's a time and...

Oreo is another dog? Is Oreo housebroken? Do you take them out at the same time?

You mention frustrated, what is your reaction when the dog pees on the floor? Automatically lock her in the cage?

When you take her for a walk, do you use a harness or a leash? When you're biking with the dog running beside you, I suspect she's not reactive?

Try an experiment. Do you have an ipod or phone...

No offense, but alot of the information on that site is simply wrong. It's in the way they are raised. I've owned 2 purebred Minpins in the last 6 years, and nothing written about them is correct. ...

Please try not to take this the wrong way, but why are you expecting humans to appease your dog? She's in a comfort zone, and you're letting her stay within it.

I am so tired of fear based vet medicine, it's not even erring on the side of caution anymore - be afraid. Somehow, THC has become a poison to dogs now. :wall:

Bored pups get destructive. Take the dog out to an off leash park and let it burn off some energy. Vaccines be darned, you're missing out on the most important window by keeping...
