  1. Don't fret it, this is generally normal..active growing pup. The bag recommendations, they are not a good idea to follow, each pup will differ. He'll be mature when he's as old as he has legs..I've a yearling who is just starting to work. She is 10# lighter than him and eats as much!
  2. I would give this dog back to the breeder. Don't expect a refund or anything at all. Make sure they are fully aware of what has transpired and move on before it gets worse and the dog pays the price..
  3. Don't sweat it yet. It could come down or not but just let it be and don't check 100 times a day! If it doesn't he'll need to be neutered due to issues of it remaining in the body cavity. That's a bit pricey compared to a regular neuter.. enjoy your pup!
  4. Still would only recommend David or Sandy..you may try Angie McCrann - due west of ya before you fall into the Gulf..
  5. Is this on lead and *at the very first snap* is the dog already in his space being rude?
  6. Since the vet did not do a fecal...if it was my dog, I'd fast for 24 hours, worm him, panacur, and use some Tylan powder, with regular feedings, along with some good probiotics. Food allergies, in the big picture, are pretty rare.
  7. Sounds to me a bit domineering and controlling..why can't dogs eat in peace? If he doesn't like you messing with him while eating, then don't! Put him in a crate.. The bond with my dogs is based on trust and mutual respect, not me feeding them.
  8. Central Florida? There are only about 3 people I would recommend in Florida. David Saunders, Sandy Tindal and maybe, big maybe one other...miss my home state, especially when it is only 17° here! Are you going to Leida's? She'll be wonderful for ya! Or JK....stay away.
  9. Ok, what about group 2 and 3? And would not an MDR1 dog be more susceptible due to the defect, just in general? Not just speaking of ivermectin.
  10. Understand, so if their dosage is so incorrect would the takeaway be that there is nothing to worry about it all?
  11. I'm so sorry to hear this Mark.
  12. No, where does it say that? I know he verbally corrected the info that was on the screen...wrt to dosages.
  13. I've recently come across this research/presentation. Not only is it bad for all dogs on HW/Flea medication, it's a double whammy for MDR1 dogs. I've spoken to a few people about this and their consensus is this is something we should carefully watch and research, scary... @betty boop dog lover, while this may not pertain to Hogan's nystagmus, it made me pause wrt his focusing issues, if he is MDR1. Just one more reason I feel something should be done to eradicate MDR1 from the breed, now.
  14. The Dramamine may help with his appetite as well, won't hurt. My guy was one that reoccurring did happen..much easier on me the second time around! Good luck and I hope he feels better soon.
  15. Yep, pretty common in the seniors unfortunately. My guy took about a week to feel better and the head tilt never completely went away. I used Dramamine to help and it really did help. That and feeding on the floor, a plate vs a bowl, keeping them in a nice not bright area..I saw that the bright lights and sun made things worse. Good luck, it's no fun but generally good recovery.
