  5. I have one that can't tolerate Tram, for whatever reason, but does fine on Codiene Sulfate as a pain reliever. They are both opioids, just different enough in how they are metabolized. Gabapentin is a really safe drug (for the most part) and has few side effects or drug interactions. If Peggy is sensitive or more sensitive due to her health issues she could take a couple days to get used to the dosage.

  11. Greyhounds are excellent people trainers!!! I feed one of my dogs her food with a spoon, like a baby human. Two meals a day, every day. Because it was the only way to get her to eat before we got her IBS/food intolerance under control. Now I think she just likes it.
  12. Miss Lila has your Momma ever gives you a Gas-x when you get those bad tummyakes? Sometimes that helps. Me and Momma get so jealous when we hear about the Grapehoundies!! They got something like that here now, but it's put on by the big humane society and all kinds of dogs is invited and it's a big huge event!!! Mister Charlie we thot you lived in a condominimuminum!?!?? We would live to see pichers of your gardening tho! That's all from here for today my Friendlies!! Kibble kisses and Buddy Bisket dreams!!

Mister Spirit, sometime Momma says she doesn't sleep very good too, tho it's a lot more better now that she started taking that melatonin. She goes to sleep faster and can usually stay asleep longer. Sometimes tho she says her brain just works overtime and it's a long nite. I can sleep any time anywhere so I just don't get it!!!! Miss Ivy we hope your Antie and Daddy have a wunnerful birthday!!! Nice picher floofy Molly!!!! Nothing much going on around here today - it's clouding and showering and not very warm!!! If it clears off we mite have barbeekew hot dogs or something. Momma sure hopes there aren't any fireing works tonite! We got some stoopid yahoos in the nayborhood who like to blow things up and make a buncha noise every little chance they get. Wishings for a solemm remembrance day for all my Friendlies! BYE-EEE!!! AndiPants
  14. I would wager that she's still in the settling in phase with you. It sounds like you're doing all the right things - giving her time and space to work through her anxiety. Since she's still being so reactive you would probably benefit from the help of a good certified animal behaviorist who could come to your house and observe her interactions. It could be leash reactivity, resource guarding, sleep startle, or all of them of none of them. She just might be one of those anxious dogs whose first response to stress is growling and snapping rather than running or hiding. You might also benefit from this book: The Cautious Canine by Patricia McConnell She's an excellent trainer who gives really sound advice in a straightforward, easy-to-understand manner. Her books are short and really goal based and can be had in paper or Kindle formats. She also has another book specifically about Leash Reactivity to other dogs which also may be helpful. Regardless, I think avoiding her triggers is the safe way to go at this time. She may never be the social butterfly you would like - greyhounds are often breed snobs - but hopefully she can learn to be less anxious in her daily interactions.
  15. I haven't bathed my greys in - years probably! They get in their pool in the summer and that seems to do the trick. Agree with the thoughts above about overbathing causing more harm than good. If one bath didn't work, three or four are not going to help. It could be a skin issue or allergies or an anal gland issue or thyroid or even bad teeth. Have her in for her initial wellness check at a good greyhound savvy vet sooner rather than later. Get a good bristle horse brush or canine Zoom Groom that will pull out the old hair (she will shed massively) and bring up the natural oils in her skin. Add in some natural nutritional oils high in omega 3s and 5s to her food (salmon oil is common, but any kind will help). Start small with just one tablespoon or squirt each meal for a week or two and then work up the amount slowly to 2 or 3 tbls each meal so you don't overload her system with fat (causing a different problem). Congratulations on your new family member and welcome to the cult!
