  1. Thanks! There hasn't been an FNA, just antibiotics. It seems to me, admittedly not a vet, that there's pus and blood coming out that looks more like an infection and looks less like a traditional cyst. We have our next check in this week.
  2. Hi everyone - Our Gracie (now 8) has arthritis in her left front wrist which we are managing, but she has now developed a cyst between the two middle toes on that foot. Our vet knows about it and has prescribed oral and topical antibiotics and I've been going back every 10 days for a check. The cyst will get bigger, rupture, drain, be almost gone for a few hours, and then it grows again. This has been going on for more than a month. I asked the vet fairly early on if surgical removal was needed and she said no, the antibiotics will eventually take care of it. Can you share your cyst experiences? Thanks so much!
  3. Booklets are being emailed tomorrow per one of Larry's earlier emails 😊
  4. I'm following with interest. Have a hookworm positive boy and have been advised about the Drontal Plus/Advantage Multi combination.
  5. Have you done x-rays? Our girl is limping and she has some arthritis issues in her wrist and calcification in her shoulder, which we wouldn't have found without images.
  6. We just adopted David, although we've been fostering for a couple of weeks. I suspect he has hookworms which I know will affect his stool. Getting him tested shortly and I know it can be 3-6 months to eradicate. I've given him a bland diet after each of the two deworming tablets, and his stool was pretty great with hamburger and rice, not great with chicken and rice. Currently on Purina Pro Plan Salmon Sensitive stomach kibble or whatever the title is, recommended by both of our greyhound groups. Our other grey, Gracie, isn't great on this food so I'm debating switching. I was thinking of trying the Purina Pro Plan beef and rice but there seems to be a supply issue. I can get some at our local Petco but Chewy and Petflow are out. So - options. Try a small bag now and hope one of the online retailers gets restocked soon? Try another food? Which one?
  7. 🤣 "in your face fuss junkies" omg, that describes our last foster perfectly. Our Gracie is more of a background dog, until it's time for walks. Our new "foster" David is working on deciding what he's going to be.
  8. Thanks! I was looking at other options but have no idea of the quantity of additional polyfill or foam - 10 lbs? 5 lbs?
  9. I know many of you have done this - can you post suggestions and/or links? Many thanks!
  10. I don't think the travel time would be the the stressor for the dog - remember, many of them have traveled quite a bit from their farms to the track, to maybe another track or multiple, to the adoption group. It's more whether the group will adopt out of their normal area. The hesitation is often that if there's a problem, how would they get the dog back, and there's no one nearby to help with problems by observing the dog. Nothing insurmountable.
