  1. I can let you know that...hang on... (Full disclosure: i work for the American Animal Hospital Association, the publisher of JAAHA.)
  2. The first article, "Part I. Evaluation of Dogs with Border Collie Collapse, Including Response to Two Standardized Strenuous Exercise Protocols," was published in the September/October 2016 issue of JAAHA (52.5) and the second article, "Part II. Border Collie Collapse: Owner Survey Results and Veterinary Description of Videotaped Episodes," will be published in the November/December 2016 issue (52.6).
  3. JAAHA, the peer-reviewed Journal of the American Animal Hospital Association, is publishing two related articles on BORDER COLLIE COLLAPSE for free this month. See the articles here: https://www.aaha.org/professional/resources/jaaha.aspx
  4. An 8-month-old pup is too young to run alongside a bicycle. I would wait until the pup is at least twice that age.
  5. The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) has a website microchip lookup tool anyone can use to look up the registry of any microchip number, which you can then contact to find out the owner's information. https://www.aaha.org/pet_owner/about_aaha/microchip_lookup_tool/default.aspx Obviously, you might need a scanner to find out the number, but many pets wear a collar tag with the chip number displayed.
  6. Great posts, Denice (and Julie, too)--and I am so glad to hear you and Blu are still working together
  7. As far as I know, there is no Colorado Stock Dog Association. The only stockdog association in Colorado that endorses ISDS-type trials and working border collies exclusively (as opposed to AKC or all-breed clubs) is the Mountain & Plains Border Collie Association.
  8. Herdcentral, are you suggesting there may be shades of gray here?

  10. One of my dogs had a very persistent case as a pup. Topicals did not clear it up, so she was treated with a high dose of ivermectin. Because herding breeds can be sensitive to ivermectin (it can be fatal), we first did an ivermectin sensitivity test. After the results indicated she was not at risk to ivermectin toxicity, she was treated and the mange cleared up immediately.
  11. Not sure what Iron Horse is using for ThunderBolt, but Canna Companion is legal because it is hemp--it doesn't contain enough THC to violate the US Controlled Substances Act. You can order it online.
  12. Love me some Slider! He is so shiny! So, do his ears move in the direction of sound? Meg's ears are little antennae.
