  1. "Humans have altered dogs' brains"- https://apple.news/AtrxWwQn4QGyfAo0dz4eS_A
  2. TY. Stupid me, I was adhering to a q3 mo interval of the Bravecto for L&L (my other two) only to read the flyer again yesterday... 2 month intervals because of the Lone Star tick?? Drat. On a side note, am doing my own entymological study, you might say, on captive ticks. Saved 3 egg laden ticks in a pill bottle at least 2 mos. ago. As of yesterday, 1 of the females was still alive. No food, water, or fresh air... she (or maybe all 3) laid eggs, which hatched. The inside of the bottle/lid is "peppered" with the larval ticks, still crawling everywhere, inside conditions unchanged. Gross. They're a scourge.
  3. You could well be correct, @GentleLake. The other thought might be that these untested included ingredients were being used all the while by owners who wouldn't have known any different necessarily.
  4. Interesting proposal, @Zaphod know it helps humans... will follow!
  5. @GentleLake- I followed your link, but it was dated Sept of '18... picked up some Bravecto this past week, and the copyright on the enclosed flyer is 2014 and 2017 - meaning, hasn't been updated per FDA directive. Really don't know what choice to make- ticks have been SOOOO bad, despite using K9 Advantix II for our rescue BC cross. The alternatives, it seems to me, are- plan on having to treat your dogs for any of the various TBD's and forget the preventatives, OR- use them, watch for SE's, and hope for the best
  6. Just saw this today: https://apple.news/AJmpXOXDHRxWAKaJgFlf7Og
  7. @GentleLake- Yes, I always praise all 3 when they jump up into the car. Haven't passed out treats (mostly, to avoid the possibility of car sickness, which used to be a problem). Yes, he'll get in with just one of the others, incrementally. It's not like I'm pulling him, kicking and biting into the hatch. Just reluctance and stiffening. Hard on paint jobs ... we'll work it out. Thanks for your suggestions!
  8. LOL- to be truthful, he IS sure he doesn't want to be the only dog I can try that, yes, TY.
  9. Yes, @D’Elle, I understand where you’re coming from. He is one of three- and if they ALL are getting in, it’s no problem. But if he’s the only? It’s like “OK, what’s this about/not sure I want to go alone”- etc etc. Certainly not adverse to treating him...
  10. @GentleLake- It‘s more about the times when he could be RELUCTANT to get in, and I‘d have to “help” him. He has his moments of timidity...
  11. Yes, have a crate, was concerned about the wires/edges marking up the new interior... might be futile, though, hauling four legged creatures with claws! TY, @Tuxedodog, @urge to herd- novel idea for yoga mats. Was thinking about the jump up into the SUV and how to avoid claw scratches on the bumper Thanks!
  12. @D’Elle, @urge to herd, @GentleLake- TY all. Have oldie bedding I can use, and will look up the Sherpa-
  13. @rooze- everyone has given you such excellent, helpful advice here, have learned just by reading along. What stands out in my mind is the sad awareness that all of his formative days as a pup were spent in isolation, largely (caged) - and when he WAS allowed small bits of freedom, he was shocked for containment. It truly explains the aloofness, unattachment, fear and insecurity. You’re wonderful to devote yourself to helping Max.
  14. I would like some recommendations for your favorite pet protection covers for vehicles when traveling? Sold my old SUV, and needing to purchase something for the cargo area in the new one (full size GMC). Any particular brands you like/dislike? There’s so many listed on Amazon, it’s mind boggling, just to read the reviews. Thanks in advance-
