Dear Karen, I haven’t been on DK much in the last 10 months. After I lost my husband to a massive heart attack Last August, my life switched into a different mode. It was many months before I came to. It was just today that I saw a comment on DK that worried me. Jack is gone, over the Bridge, months ago! I’m tearing up for you right now, because I know how hard it was for you to lose him. I just wanted you to know, that like all of your followers here, that I am devastated for you. Time has passed, and it sounds like you have a puppy! May s/he give you as much joy as dear Jack. Thank you for always being there to help us through our doggie issues. Lots of love for you and yours.
Wondering if anyone has been contacted directly by "Mr. James". He asked me to email him bc it was difficult for him to express himself on a public site. Hoping I don't have to take my profile down. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up. Love reading all the helpful info.
Not sure if you remember me but it's been years since I've logged on (I took a massive social media break). Anyway, I was thinking about you and wanted to say I hope you're doing well. You were always so helpful to me when I first got Goldie and you've stuck with me:)
Bummer. Wishing you luck in finding something compatible for him soon. Olive's paw seems better today already, thanks! She has stopped limping and it looks less red and raw where the vet shaved her, unnecessarily.
My friend karma told me to connect with u! I have been having challenges with my dood . Found out just a few months ago that he has ibs. :( do you know a lot about this disease? Oliver is currently taking metrozidazal (antibiotic) which I guess helps ibs and also if he picked up bacteria or a parasite it is suppose to address that. Two days ago poor boy pooped with mucus on his stools and then later the same day he just pooped mucus :/ I was like ahh this isn't good... so called the doc and vet said try this med for three days and see how he does. So yesterday started him on turkey burger and rice three times a day and the meds and the. Today going to keep doing it. He hasn't went poop today :/ and seems like his nose is a bit warm but still wet. He has energy .. ahhh I get nervous bc last summer he was really sick and it was a scare. He lost 15pounds in two weeks time and had vomiting and direah ... did lots of tests and nothing showed up.. just white blood count was a bit low. After doing everything we fed him turkey and rice for over a week and finally turned around plus changed his dog food to acana highlands ranch blend that's beef and pork and seemed the to do fine... sooooo who knows now what he picked up .. I know he had horse poop last week and I took him to cherry creek .. so he could have ghiarda
I wanted to give you an update on Bella with the food switch:) She is doing great on it and had a smooth (no tummy problems) transition to the Fromm Gold line. I haven't noticed a difference with her coat or anything like that. (which I am not worried about since her coat was always soft:) I can still see that the itching is about the same,(It hasn't been bad lately) but the paw licking has pretty much stopped. Will it just take time to see any "changes" with the itching?
Thank You for helping me with switching her to a better food:)
P.S. I think it was in the recent Acana discussion that you said there was a Pet Supplies Plus near you? That was the pet store that we went to in FL, and only thought that they were down south. I have been looking EVERYWHERE for a store! I have to look on the website to see if there are any near me:)
Thanks Karen for your response to my food question awhile back. What food do you feed your doodle(s)? I'm trying to wean Forest off Prescription Hills Diet i/d even though he had perfect stool on that food, back to Candidae. It's not good anymore. Boo!
Karen, I requested the "friend" thing. I have a problem with Penny that I would like to discuss privately. It's a bit embarrassing and a little inappropriate to post for everyone to see, I think. Maybe it's been discussed already; if it has, I haven't found anything on it. Message me or allow me a "friend" so I can reach you. Thanks, Sally
