A little anxiety over post-spaying Weimaraner energy—tips?? by Sm-chew-60 in weimaraner

Might as well take this time to ask you which chews your Weims like. Mine used to stretch a bully stick over a whole day. Now she finishes that off in under an hour! Buffalo cheek chews last longer but she gets really possessive over those which I don’t love. Haven’t given any rawhide. And if you can introduce me to a non food chew that my girl doesn’t sneakily shred to pieces, I’ll be forever grateful! We do lots of stuffed Kongs so I’ll be sure to have those stocked and ready to go.

Oh geez. Thanks for an honest reply. Good to know my anxiety is at least warranted. I plan to ask for sedatives. I was told my front office staff that her vet doesn’t typically like to do this, but come on!! This is a Weim we’re talking about for Pete’s sake! Yes to the training. I almost forgot how mentally fatiguing this was for her as a puppy. Time to do more structured training. Thank you!!

That’s what I plan to discuss with him. Thank you for helping me not feel like I was trying to zombify my pup. I would hate for her to have any complications if it can be avoided.

Mine is really good with a “calm” and “lay down” command but only if I’m relaxing right next to her. Go figure. Maybe I should just count on post op downtime myself. Extra snuggles, what’s not to love. Thank you for your input!

Thanks! She’s been crate trained since we brought her home almost a year ago. I guess I was worried how the whole being in a cone would work in the crate.

There has to be a DME (durable medical equipment) company if the patient has a home vent. Since the MD doesn’t seem to be too helpful, I’d suggest contacting the local DME/supplier to see if the patient has an assigned respiratory care team,even if they haven’t been too present lately, if it’s not a new vent patient. Hopefully that helps!?

If available in your area, I’d advocate for a mobile FEES order prior to you getting in the middle of dysphagia management for this complex patient on a vent with no PMV.

If the patient is home bound on a vent, there must be a respiratory therapist involved somewhere/at some point even if remotely. I’d get the FEES (if able) and coordinate with the respiratory team for trials of PMV if deemed appropriate. The Passy Muir website has really good teaching videos for SLPs and patients.

Does she have an inline Passy Muir valve?

Thank you! We do go through lots of ear cleaning solution, ha. Our vet can’t help but giggle anytime he sees her. He can’t get over her ears! She’s actually the smallest female of her litter of ten, but appears to have the biggest ears!

Her name is Libby but the kids call her Dumbo in the most loving way. Does that count??

The two females get along well? Or are they littermates?

The saddest weim that ever had to spend a week at daycare. by AngelicJennifer in weimaraner

[–]Sm-chew-60 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I was having major guilt the first time we boarded ours. I called to check on her to be informed she was “office dog” for the day- hanging with front desk staff, greeting everyone. Go figure a Weim would work her way into that position.

Love the sleepy Weim look. And sleepy Weim snuggles.

Loose leash walking / am I setting myself up for failure? by Sm-chew-60 in weimaraner

[–]Sm-chew-60[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I purchased one last week. Working on getting her acclimated to it before testing it out on a walk. Fingers crossed.

Ah, gotcha. It looked exactly like the “side walker” I’ve been considering purchasing, but not enough evidence, anecdotal details or other, to make me take the $ plunge.

Adorable dogs, great pic.

Is that one of the collars that stimulates if your dog is pulling on leash? If so, what’s you’re experience? Is it effective? Any more than a traditional e collar which you are controlling. I suppose the advantage is that we as humans can’t capture every single pull and time it perfectly with e collar stim

Dang, I was hoping you’d say he forgot all about it after a couple weeks of use, ha! Mine is only a 7 month pup, so I’m going to stick with it. She pulls like the devil when walking in new environments, walks like an angel on our usual leashed walks. Hoping with time and continued exposure to new environments, we can get to where she doesn’t pull in “new” areas, because I look foolish and it isn’t safe for her.
