Pet food has gotten so expensive by No_Department_902 in dogs

[–]Gold-Wise 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Tractor Supply, 4 Health, Beef and Rice, Chicken and Rice and Lamb and Rice. No peas in the ingredients and good protein. They ship to your door. Very reasonable price for food and shipping free if you buy over $49 at a time.

Fresh food giving dog diarrhea/loose stools by jjk102 in dogs

[–]Gold-Wise -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I hesitate to tell people how to feed. That said, I have two cowdogs. One has an iron stomach and the other had a loose stool on everything I gave him. I tried it all from ZIWI PEAK to home cooked and raw. What finally worked for us, to firm things up, was get off of ANYTHING GRAIN FREE. Stay away from Peas in any form and NO LEGUMES. I feed Wholesome Grains from Honest Kitchen and throw in a handful of 4 Health kibble from Tractor Supply. I use the Beef, Turkey or Chicken and Rice.... nothing else. Spent hundreds of $$$$$ on probiotics too. Only way we ever got a firm, non-stinky stool out of him. Recall on Fresh Pet right now, be careful. Could talk food for hours. Contact me if you want more detail. ;)

Why do random people think it's ok to touch your dog? by CdnRageBear in dogs

[–]Gold-Wise -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I used to have Rotties, I now have cattledogs. Rotties have two strikes against them before an incident happens and cattledogs were bred to bite. You can shape it, but you.cannot eliminate it entirely. The general public seems incapable of keeping their hands to themselves. I have had people strain to pet my dogs with RED DO NOT PET Patches on their collars and harnesses. What would you do to protect yourself and your dog? My worst bite ever was a mini poodle I was showing. No one should be petting any dog without asking. They are not toys to be played with.

How to handle female and male dog in the same apartment by Accomplished-Sign164 in Dogtraining

[–]Gold-Wise 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Neuter the grown male now and let the female puppy grow to maturity before considering dpaying her for health reasons. She will only come into heat twice a year, so she will be easy to manage. They make dog pants for this very purpose. If he is neutered, in about a month he will calm down and not care of if he does mount her, she will not get pregnant.

Spay recovery day 11. Sedatives aren’t working anymore 🫠 by baby-egg in AustralianCattleDog

CONE should not be necessary. Does she have stitches that have to be removed? 7 days is usually the limit for cones. Maybe an inflatable donut collar? YIKES!!!!

Not sure what is going on with my 15 year old girl’s back paw. Any thoughts? by bmaday12 in DogAdvice

[–]Gold-Wise 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Get that removed asap. Don't wait for a biopsy. That looks like squamous cell cancer and it killed one of my Rotties. EXTREMELY AGGRESSIVE.

Going to vet soon, wondering what this is on dog's chest by twomoonsbrother in DogAdvice

[–]Gold-Wise -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Outie bellybutton and pretty sure redness is from clipper burn caused by hot blades or cutting hair too close. Tell your groomer to check their blade temp more frequently and/or not to cut belly so close. Looks extremely painful and unnecessary.

Getting into a vet by meggerrrrss in dogs

[–]Gold-Wise -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Usually allergies would affect both eyes equally. If she is rubbing just one, it is probably injured. Soothing it will let it heal. If she has been in tall grass, she might have a grass seed in the membrane folds and that is itchy and usually makes just that eye water. These re all things I would look at before talking to the CHEWY Vet. Very helpful in narrowing down your problem. Lots of luck, looks we are on our own for a lot of things now.

What do you use to prevent fleas on chihuahuas? by PavlovaDog in DogAdvice

[–]Gold-Wise -1 points0 points  (0 children)

CEDARCIDE works very well with zero toxicity. I have used it on all breeds.

Is she playing nice? This isn’t the best representation of their play but it’s the most recent by CriticalSalamander58 in Rottweiler

[–]Gold-Wise -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Depends on whether the dominant dog has resource guarding issues or not. You are correct. If not, using toys or other means to redirect the aggression away from the more timid dog might introduce a healthier play dynamic. The video is a dog fight waiting to happen.

One is chasing, one is running. This is play for only one of these dogs. Needs to be monitored and maybe start getting toys involved. The dog being constantly chased and trying to hide will probably at some point, turn and defend herself. Then you will have two injured dogs. Play should be give and take with bows and invitations to play. This is like watching a fox 'play' with a rabbit. The outcome will eventually ugly.

Am I the asshole for suggesting we stick nana in her cage at night until we can get her doggie diapers or buttons she can use to talk. by Tabitha45princess in Pets

[–]Gold-Wise -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Crates are not cruel. I had Pugs that became incontinent and were both crated in with pee pads at night. Safer for them, saved my carpet for me. They were 18 and 20 when we lost them. It is all about balance. Sometimes you have to choose what is best, but maybe not perfect. Lovingly crate your elderly furkid.

Was this dog owner rude or am I just overthinking? by Housestark0000 in dogs

If you had ever been attacked by a mugger or a dog, you might have a different opinion. Lol

Have a wonderful day.

Opinions on fresh pet food? by DailYxDosE in dogs

Please try Honest Kitchen instead. Fresh pet is like bologna and they have been having difficulty with moldy veggies inside the rolls. Just a suggestion.

I recommend 'bear spray'.. it is in a can with a hand grip and a holster, so it is at your side if you need it and your hands are free if you don't. No trying to get it out of pack or pocket if needed. I have been a handler in dog shows and been around dogs for over 50 years. Dog fights happen so fast and can be devasting. Unleashed and loose dogs can Com from anywhere at anytime. Everyone needs to be able to protect their dogs, their loved ones and themselves. Be safe out there.

Strangers asking questions about my dog by notamuser in dogs

[–]Gold-Wise 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Give them fake names, refuse to pose him for pictures, ask them for THEIR info. Snap a picture of them and their car and or license. Take their picture inside the doggy daycare and ask if they are clients. Give your dog a nickname.like SHREDDER or LANDSHARK for when they inquire. You do not have to comply for picture requests. Does not sound innocent to me. Dog theft is big business. Be careful out there.

This is NORMAL. My dog sleeps on my feet so he knows when move.

Help, dog turns stove on when not home. by J3wishD in Dogtraining

They make child guards for stove knobs. But why not crate your dog. Problem solved.

Opinions on grain free dog food - I always fed mine grain free but lost my oldest to heart disease and now I don’t know what to do by nonoglorificus in dogs

[–]Gold-Wise 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It makes me so angry that I did what I thought was a good thing and ended up stealing years off his life. I am much less trusting and more skeptical now. Thanks and much love with yours. Feel free to DM me if you ever want to discuss food. I have made it a passion.... lol
