  1. She is. Just Google her name and lots if stuff comes up. One of the things is a nutritional study funded by Purina. That doesn't mean she is wrong but I would expect bias. What rang a bell was her statement that reading ingredients is not an accurate picture of how good the food is. I have always heard the opposite.
  2. I am trying to find more info on this vet. I think she may be the one that is a shill for the big pet food companies. They are in direct competition with the smaller boutique companies that sell these exotic foods as well as companies selling raw food diets. She is the one that says cking ingredients is a waste of time. She is associated with Purina and they are funding a study at Tufts. The last I heard was to ck the first 5 ingredients and make sure they don't include pea meal, peas, legumes or potatoes. I have never fed grain free. I just feed Fromm regular food for weight control.

    Aw shoot. I was worried because he wasn't posting nearly as much as he used too. He was just such a great guy. I read Nop's Trials many years ago. Great writer, too. Miss you Geezer. God speed.

    Frightening intelligence

    It amazes me how many people have little tiny dogs that use a doggie door. I know it's handy but I sure wouldn't risk it. There was a case where a hawk tried to pick up a 25 pound French bulldog. The dog got loose but he was really hurt. It had these horrible deep lacerations. When I'm taking care of those little guys I always stay with them.
  7. Just be sure the melatonin you use does not have xylitol in it. Some brands include it and it is very toxic to dogs.

    Avocado can kill a dog??

    I read ip on this not long ago. Avacado is very toxic to birds and some animals. The flesh and skins are not toxic to dogs. The pit is what is dangerous for dogs. It can cause obstruction.
  9. Young, growing dogs can have little patches like that. The stress of growing lets the demodectic mange mites that all dogs carry cause some problems . Spots are often around the eyes, or on feet and legs. It usually resolves by itself in about 6 weeks. The meds take for parasites often clear it up. I would ck with your vet so she can do a scaping to be sure that is what it is. And as long as it does not spread too far I would just watch it. Several of my young dogs have had that stuff. Your vet can tell you what to watch for.

    Therapy dogs can spread superbugs to kids, hospital finds

    Kind of like the sensationalism around the 1 man who got a terrible illness when his dog licked him. How many million dogs in the country licking their owners have never passed any diseases to anyone. Versus 2 cases of this incredibly rare disease. And boy did the media run with it.

    Book Review: Designer Dogs: An Exposé

    I read this article. I have taken care 9f several golden doodles and they were good pets. I wondered about the current craze of miniature golden doodles. I see the small ones around here. This says they have physical problems. The one I took care if seemed fine but I think they paid really a lot for that dog.
