"His coat will come back, but there will continue to be cycles where he loses it again. If the dermatologist diagnosed S.A., it's S.A., and that's immune-mediated and incurable. You can get it into remission with drugs, but there will be…"
"Diane, I had a dog that lost his hair down to the undercoat due to thyroid and his coat grew back once that was corrected. I had another dog that had a skin condition that caused him to have crusty, pussy sores like boils that erupted; he also…"
"Hi Diane,This comment section really doesn't lend itself very well to questions, answers or discussions. Sebaceous Adenitis is an incurable genetic disease that runs in Standard Poodles. We have had some owners whose dogs have had it.…"
"Hello, I am asking if anyone has a doodle with sebaceous addenitis, which causes them to lose their fur. My doodle is being treated by a dog dermatologist. Perhaps his fur will return, but she said she does not think it will be the amount he always…"
"Sigh... Riley ate an empty yogourt container yesterday. $300 emergency vet visit to induce vomiting and have her checked out. She is fine but our wallets are not! Sleep deprived forgetfulness and a mischievous puppy do not make a…"
"I feel the same way. Leave the dog at home.
And if you already have the dog in the car and you're passing some store and think you'll save yourself some time and gas by stopping right then and there rather than taking the dog home first…"
"I really don't understand why people don't just leave their dogs AT HOME when they go shopping. We only stop somewhere with dog in the car if there are two of us and someone can stay with her. Boggles my mind.

Boomer and Mariner are biological brothers. Mariner fractured his skull @ 7 weeks old, causing blindness and a seizure disorder. As a puppy he had to relearn everything, walking, eating, peeing, etc. Mariner has gradually regained much of his eyesight. He has not had a seizure in over 4 years (as of 12/25/14), since his medication was changed to potassium bromide
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
Welcome to the Sheepadoodle group. I have not been around recently, but we have just about finished our second year in Oregon. MonaChica is doing great and here is a recent photo of her. Today we went walking at Taylor Creek (one of our favorite bike ride and dog walk areas) to look at the fire damage. It is amazing. But, spring is coming in the not too distant future.undefined
Thanks for the friend request! Toby was diagnosed with oral melanoma in March 2015. He began receiving ONCEPT vaccines in April and so far, the cancer hasn't spread to his lymph nodes or lungs. I believe that Toby received 4 vaccines and then booster shots. Beginning April of this year, he will only need booster shots every 6 months. So far, ONCEPT has cost us over $10,000. We have pet insurance, so they pay about 60% of the total cost. Our oncologist also wanted Toby to take chemotherapy medication, but it was too expensive for us. How is Boomer doing?
Thank you for tying the friend request, and for tying the Tail Injury posts together.
I'm glad to have a community of Doodle Lovers to share the joy and sometimes pain of loving and living with these wonderful creatures.
Yes, beef tendons and beef tracheas are good use of animal by-products and I like that idea. Just got another package of bully sticks for my dogs and they get 20 minutes a day (takes them three days) to chew them. Outside only! Then I put them in a zip-lock bag and store until the next day. I also don't use rawhide because I could see problems with that but my vet said she has never taken a rawhide out of a dog's stomach and she has surgically removed all kinds of things. Agrees that bullysticks are a good use of animal byproducts.
