Frisbee anyone?

Garlic contains thiosulphate, which is a toxin to dogs. Some dogs are more susceptible than others, and usually just a bit on rare occasion shouldn't cause any harm. But feeding a dog anything with garlic on a regular basis isn't a very good idea.

Fish oil and flax seed is a better option for skin and coat. As for the itching - may want to check in with your vet ad he/she can be a bit more hands on than we can. I know that my dog had problems with grass and was prescribed a topical spray steroid (which we didn't use because she wasn't itching.)

Also, stay away from baby food - seems like most of it contains onion powder :/

Yep, maybe even grab a fecal sample for the vet and call to get an appointment scheduled asap.

Dog Health > Summer and hot cars

Lexi

Frisbee anyone?

Not only can it get hot but it can get cold!
Insulation does crazy things. Keep your dogs out of your car (alone, of course) period - if you're going to be going somewhere that doesn't allow dogs... DON'T BRING THEM.

Dog Health > Colitis

You should check the package to see what the recommended schedule is (most are once a day, i believe). Also, i looked up a little bit on Colitis and some various treatments/supplements. Take a look at this article in the Managing section.

Dog Health > can you feel your dog's lymph nodes?

Lexi

Frisbee anyone?

Yes, you can feel a dog's lymph nodes. I know there are some in the neck and i believe there are some in the groin area (not 100% sure).

Dog Health > ACL tear

Lexi

Frisbee anyone?

Any treatment for an ACL tear is going to somewhat costly. You can do without a holistic vet but i would get her on some supplements and a very balanced, organic diet as soon as possible to prevent atrophy of the joints and muscles.

Dog Health > Bike Accident
Lexi

Frisbee anyone?

I keep my Aussie (Lexi) off leash all the time, we have been very strict with her and she stays directly at our side and listens without hesitation.

Accidents do happen, you live, you learn. I wouldn't place Rex on a leash, i would train him to be very responsive to a certain call. My girlfriend has horses and goes to many horse shows so we have a similar call with Lexi to ensure she doesn't get stepped on. (Shes still young and isn't completely aware).

Is Rex still yelping?
having a hard time breathing?
limping?
Not eating?

If not, wait till your regular appointment and tell the vet. He may be a bit bruised or even have cracked/broken ribs (which would cause breathing abnormalities)
