Please call your your vet.

This "could" be some side effect of the Meds.

darwag, IMO any kind of noticable changes in a pet who is on medications should be told to the vet, she would be the best person to advise you on what to do or what might be wrong. Please call your vet and see what she or he has to say.

Ok when I first replied, it was because he was drinking more and peeing and now the topic changed completely

and this one...I can hardly pick out what you are stating...is there a question or concern???
Has your dog been in obedience???

You might want to repost this second problem in the training forum. You'll be likely to get more responses.

Aggression can be a real problem and you'll likely need the help of a behaviorist to work through this. But post your question on the training forum and see what some of the members think. There are some pretty knowledgeable people here...

Ok, well the best thing is to start a brand new thread as Hazel has mentioned. Otherwise, people will come in and the replies have nothing to so with your statement

It would help if you would start a seperate thread for each issue. That way, you can get more help with your problem/issue and other people who might be looking for help with a similar issue can see what advice you were given.

If you look back at this thread now, the first couple of posts don't make any sense compared to your problem.


Also - I am not understanding. Is your dog BARKING or BITING? These are two very different issues with very different methods of correction.
