  1. Hi and thank you for your thoughtfulness. No strange or new sounds in the house (or outside). I know what you’re talking about because if the fire alarm low battery beep goes off anywhere in the house it drives him nuts. Quiet as a mouse around here. Great suggestion about the CBD chews. Thank you for your reply and thoughtfulness.
  2. Hello All, I am Mr. Spock’s daddy. For all you Star Trek geeks out there, no my name is not Sarek. Mr. Spock turned 12 on November 2nd. Mr. Spock’s eyesight has been declining over the past year and is now not very good. His hearing is very good though. In the past month or so he has become very anxious, especially at night, panting, pacing and often waking us up at 2am. We take him out just in case he needs to go to the bathroom, which sometimes he does and sometimes he doesn’t. When he goes to lay down on his beds he goes around and around, lays down and then gets right back up again.
  3. Hello All, I have not posted in many years. Mr. Spock is 11 years young and going strong. A couple things though: He has cataracts - what to do? Vet said to take him to pet vision specialist in our area. He also is in need of a dental exam as per my vets recommendation. I’m just worried about the anesthesia. If anyone could chime in on their senior greyhound and the experiences you’ve had with this, it would be super appreciated. I am so lucky to have such a wonderful beautiful boy and cherish every day spent with him. He’s a hero (therapy dog) who brings light into many peopl
  4. I feed him 2 cups 2x per day. Mainting his weight just fine. 75lbs for a med/large boy
  5. Hello All, Wow, it has been a long long time since I have posted. I own Mr. Spock, the now 9 year old greyhound. I adopted him 2013. Spock is a mellow 75lb boy, not super active, very easy going. Diet History: Portions: 2 cups dry kibble with a little warm water mixed in and 1/3rd can wet food if needed Most of the time Ive had him hes been eating Purina Pro Plan kibble and wet food He stopped eating Pro Plan after a couple years, showing no interest, so switched to Purina Savor He stopped eating Savor, turning his nose up at it, not eating, stomach growling loudly. I added 1/2 can
  6. Thanks Jen I picked up some Parmesan cheese yesterday, will give that a try.
  7. Hi All, Thank you all so much for your helpful comments. Mr. Spock is spending a couple nights at a friends house with two greyhound friends of his. He enjoys going to that house and spending time with his greyhound buddies. He's been over there many many times. It will be interesting to see how he does there. I thought it was a good idea to to get him to spend quality time with a couple greyhound friends. i.e. pack. FYI, I'm a single guy, no wife, no kids......just me and ol' Spocky-boy. Spock is my best friend and it is hard to see him go through this......he's on my mind often when I'
  8. Hello All, Mr. Spock's daddy here....and for all you Trekys out there my name is not Sarek. For the record, Spock is a seven year old male that I adopted two years ago. I've been feeding him Purina Sensitive Skin & Stomach since his adoption. When I took Spock to my Mom’s house for Christmas (4 & 1/2 hours away) he stopped eating the night of Christmas Eve. He had been to my mother's house once before and ate normally. Christmas morning again he wasn’t eating. I tried putting a little cream of chicken soup mixed in with his food, but he wouldn’t touch it. Christmas was pretty

  10. Mr. Spock is still licking, just healing well. Once his leg is completely healed then I'll start working on him w/ no muzzle, fingers (and paws) crossed. Muzzle w/ poop guard is the only thing that worked for me. You can try "Leg Protectors" from In the Company of Dogs. That's where I got them. Just look them up on Google and once on their website type "leg protectors" into their search. The large are $40 though. The only problem Spock has is he licked bottom up so that the legging rolled up and he could get at his would. I decided to keep it, because it worked for him at night. Best
  11. Hi All, Thanks so much for your suggestions. Most of the Greytalk community has been a great help to me and my greyhounds. As an update, wound is still healing. Muzzling Mr. Spock daily w/ poop guard (while I'm not home) and keeping a close eye on him (no muzzle) when I am home. At night he's sleeping with no muzzle and no licking as far as I far tell. His bed is right next to mine and my ears are pretty tuned into that licking sound at this point. I also check his leg occasionally during the night to see if it's wet, which it's not. Good boy Mr. Spock is an awesome doggie. We'll get thr
  12. Hi All, I own Mr. Spock, an almost 6 year old male greyhound. Almost three months ago I had his teeth cleaned. The vet had to sedate him, so she had to shave part of his front arm to give him intravenous. She did a great job and now Spock has nice white teeth, however where they shaved.......he will not leave it alone. It used to be a pin prick, but eventually turned into a wound licked down to the muscle. He only goes at it when he's home alone and I'm at work. When I first adopted him in November 2013 he had some separation issues, not destroying anything, just pacing around, whining, et
