I suggest you see a vet just in case it is not parasitic or other reason, and I strongly recommend home made food. No one can tell me that fresh horse meat, organs, bones and veggies are not balanced, but dehydrated horse meat (hopefully) and starch are.
It depends on you, how dedicated you are on preparing good, balanced home made meals.
My B eats home made food. Meat, organs, bones I give raw, and I cook veggies and anchvies(or sardines). Once a year he gets probiotics and minerals (usually in April). Since feeding home made, he doesn’t react to grass (he used to have rash), no anal gland issues, no urinary infections, his coat is shiny, blood work is great.
That is my experience.
Buy books about home diets, do your research and remember not to overdo with the proteins.
The dogs are a pack. Playing with a cat can soon become something more. I would never leave them alone. If a cat starts running, they will chase it and will try a little bite (looks like play, but I wouldn’t bet on it). Take good care. I have one and a cat that was adult when the dog came and still the dog is sometimes ruff
Hi....so, I am no vet, but a friend had some similar issues with her dog, and the dog had portosystemic shunt. This is a lucky guess, you need to listen to your vet or get a second vetenerian opinion.
But I agree with you, you have to be careful not to put her under some treatment that is uncomfortable to her, or more aggresive than the disease.
I hope you will come to the bottom of this, and If She is ok and functional, try some natural remedies too (it can’t hurt).
Sending you get well wishes
Sorry to hear that, but She needs time to adjust and crating is not helping.
I never crated my dogs and they never distroyed anything.
My advise is to work with her more, obedience, longer walks...so She doesn’t feel neglected and let her find her own safe place.
I wouldn’t give her medications, just time.
Close those rooms with fancy furniture and leave her somewhere your smell is, bedroom maybe?
Panting and saliva pools means a lot of stress, so get her out of the crate If she is not used to it, dont give her prozac.
You need time, mental and phisical stimulations and lots of love
If it happened only twice and never again, don’t be alarmed. Maybe he ate something that upset his tummy (beside his meals).
Does he has a reflux and swallows his saliva often?
If not, monitor his behaviour, divide his meals in small portions and give them more often...
Oh, and add water to his meals, specially If he eats dry food because they are known as poor drinkers.
