Dog Dylan: Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia - The Battle of Prednisone!

What a tough situation we find ourselves in during this fight for life. We are pretty much at the mercy of our vets when we start this journey. Having to put full trust in them immediately. To diagnose the condition and explain it to us and treat it appropriately. All sounds very easy, but with AIHA it is not. There is a tendency for this disease to strike fear in the hearts of those who treat it and that fear is easily [More...]

Kidney: My Dog's Acquired Taste - Using Desensitization

So I asked my friend Joe (Joe More), not to be confused with my dog Joey, what he thought the chances of Joey eating the kidney in his meal today were after refusing to eat it yesterday; he hummed and hawed.  In the end he gave in to my hints that he should go with Joey eating it. From my perspective, the answer was obvious.  All of my dogs eat their raw meat and bone dinner as though they are eating an [More...]

My dogs have had some exercise, except for Dylan who has only been out for a bit to say hello to our neighbors.  They all love the sun, but Dylan is more of an afternoon girl. She rarely goes out before 8 AM, [More...]
