Saying Goodbye: Memorials & Support > how do we prepare?

Hi Sabi:
I don't think so. All the preparation in the world can't prepare us when we lose someone we love and this includes our fur babies.

I've been where you're at Sabi and I know how hard it is to look at them without crying. I've struggled many, many times with this over the years and it never gets any easier.

I think the only thing we can do to prepare is to except it and that's hard.

I tell my husband all the time that I can't believe my doberman Jenna is still alive given all the things she has eaten. Not nearly as bad as the great dane's list though!

Hi Cookie:
I agree with Foxy. Try not to make a fuss when your entering or leaving the house.

I tell my dogs "I'll be back, I'm going to the store" and I say this anytime I'm leaving so that they associate that particular phrase with the fact that I'm leaving them alone. I don't make a fuss, I just tell them that and give them a quick pat on the head and leave.

Once your dog is more comfortable without you, you can show more affection.

Senior Dogs > My poor Taylor is having a hard time.

Hi:
I'm so happy to hear that Taylor is feeling a little better. I completely understand about the food issue. It's hard when you have multiple dogs and the food is expensive.

I provided all those links for you just so you wouldn't have to go searching and I think I might have broken the rules here on the forum and for that "I apologize".

I hope your boy continues to improve with time. smile

Behavior & Training > Thundershirt question

Maggie

Hi Penny:
I did a product review on the thundershirt back in June. The company donated a shirt for the visitor of my choice. I highly recommend that you check out the review. I wanted a dog who suffered from severe and I mean SEVERE thunder phobia to test the shirt for me. I found one who was much like my girl "Lulu" who passed away last year.

Another story that came to me was about Max and it was a very tragic story. In fact Max and Lulu's stories were what prompted me to get so involved in this issue.

You can check out my thundershirt product review if you like.

Hi Baxter's Mommy:
I'm so very sorry about the loss of both of your parents. I'm also sorry about your Baxter boy. I'm thinking of you and you'll be in my prayers. I've had a dog with cancer and it's a tough thing to go through.

We recently placed a page on our website from one of our visitors who shared her dog's experience and recovery through radiation with us.

You can read Sofie's story here if you like.

Hi there:
I'm so sorry about Taylor. I know how hard this is and "yes" I've dealt with cognitive dysfunction with one of my many dogs.

Another product that you can try that has been successful in many pets is called Cholodin and would be used in place of the drug Anipryl.

I think it's worth looking into. Here's a link so you can check it out if you want. Cholodin For Dogs.

Regarding DM, you must feed him a healthy natural diet - forget kibble if possible. Look to a better food like The Honest Kitchen or another better brand that is closer to home made. Antioxidants are a must. Fish oil - a good fish oil like this is also critical and it must be free of toxins such as heavy metals. I also recommend you read this page from Dr. Schoen and take his advice on the other supplements such a vitamin B complex, vitamin C, selenium and the others.

Don't give up. Use a sling to help Taylor get around. I hope this helps.

Senior Dogs > They're getting older, you're getting "younger"

I agree with Wellington. I know it's hard and I've been in this situation many, many times.

I think you should take Sanka for a mini hike just you and him for some one-on-one time. Let him sniff and mosey. Maybe take him to the pet store by himself for a walk around.

It's hard for seniors and it's equally hard for the owner. It's a matter of finding the right balance where everybody's getting what they need.

Dogs and a Clean Home > Are black dogs more smelly?
Jenna

That's a new one!

Dogs that are prone to yeast infections and yeast overgrowth issues will often smell more, but that has nothing to do with the color of the dog. Instead it's related to a weakened immune system that could be triggered by many different things including diet, the overuse of antibiotics, steroids and allergies.
