  • Why won’t my dog leave his poop alone?

    I try my best to pick it up as soon as possible, but sometimes he’s too quick for me. I am looking for suggestions on how to teach him not to do it or ways to prevent this besides picking up ASAP as that doesn’t always work. I’ve never ever screamed at him for pooping anywhere he’s always pooped outside anyway so... show more

I am looking for suggestions on how to teach him not to do it or ways to prevent this besides picking up ASAP as that doesn’t always work. I’ve never ever screamed at him for pooping anywhere he’s always pooped outside anyway so I’m not sure why he started this nasty habit. Any advice is appreciated!

  • I can’t afford to reclaim my lost dog?

    I live in San Jose, CA. State law inquires that lost pets will be held for 6 days (excluding the day they were impounded). The shelter just closed, and now that makes 6 days. Is there a possibility that my dog will be put up for adoption? Because I don’t want to lose them. I’m probably the worst pet owner to... show more
    I live in San Jose, CA. State law inquires that lost pets will be held for 6 days (excluding the day they were impounded). The shelter just closed, and now that makes 6 days. Is there a possibility that my dog will be put up for adoption? Because I don’t want to lose them. I’m probably the worst pet owner to exist. I bought my dog some treats and a new toy on the same day they ran away. I gave him the treats... But he never got the toy. Sorry, I’m rambling. If my dog is put up for adoption... Is it more expensive or do I have a chance to get him back? I’m going to have more nightmares tonight. I’m very depressed. Now I’m diagnosed with insomnia and my eating has worsened. I’ll probably just try begging hard enough tomorrow when I go to the shelter... In hopes that I get my dog back. tl:dr the state time limit to get my dog has passed, what can I do?

  • I'm getting very sick of cleaning poop and pee in my house because of these dogs I rescued. it is unreal and I feel they dont give a,****?

    they got a nice loving home and have issues from abuse. This is total bs. I might confine them to the laundry room, kitchen or our side but then they bark like crazy.

  • My dog has a broken leg?

    Best answer: Hopefully your dog is sensible and will try to avoid pain and not put too much stress on the leg. The main challenge might well be to have him leave the cast in peace, so he probably will have to wear a cone. Which might not be possible in crate. It really depends what your dog is used to when you leave the... show more
    Best answer: Hopefully your dog is sensible and will try to avoid pain and not put too much stress on the leg. The main challenge might well be to have him leave the cast in peace, so he probably will have to wear a cone. Which might not be possible in crate.

    It really depends what your dog is used to when you leave the house. If he normally is in a crate and happy there, put him into a crate. If he normally just sleeps around the house, you can leave him out. If your other dog is rambunctious and might play with him, keep them separated, it not you can leave them together. Do whatever keeps the dog most calm. If the dog is very energetic you could ask the vet to give the dog something like prozac to keep the dog calmer during the recover period, it might help.

    Generally I think as long as the dog is not in pain when resting to not give pain medication. You want some pain when the dog is putting to much stress on the broken leg as that is the way to keep the dog from doing it. Keep in mind that apparently tramadol is not a good pain killer for dogs, so if your vet is prescribing tramadol ask for something different:
    http://skeptvet.com/Blog/2018/06/tramadol-for-pain-in-dogs-and-cats/
    So discuss with the vet for how long you should give the dog pain killer. The dog will probably need it for the first few days, but maybe not much longer.

    So I've been looking for tips on caring for my little dog (who sadly had to have her eyes taken out due to illness) but any search result I make only comes up with blind guide dogs (as in the human is blind not the dog) I have found a few tips here and there but nothing much, such as putting her food and water on a mat so its a little easier to find them. My mum also thought about putting a bell on our other dog so she'll have some idea where he is. Its a little disappointing how little information there is on blind dog care? Or even products to buy, just little things to help improve her life since she is still a young dog (6 years old) Any tips would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

    I suggest you look up rabies & educate your self so you will know exactly what rabies is, what it does to an animal after being bit by a rabid animal. how it is transmitted, treatment & such. There is so much online about this so I am not going to go into any details. You will learn all about it when you do your research.

    Would you really call my baby girl a killer?

    Best answer: I prefer to blame the deed, not 'the breed' so as long as you just remember that this type of dog can suddenly turn, all should be well. I don't condemn Pit Bulls out of hand.

I DO their often stupid owners, along with BYBs who are producing overly aggressive Pit Bulls, because there is a market for them amongst a certain type of owner.

    Pit Bulls were put on the banned breed list in the UK after a series of injuries/deaths from this type of dog. It was purely a knee-jerk reaction on the part of the Government. Again it's usually HUMAN ERROR that allows such tragedies to occur.
