  1. My first Greyhound was a Greyhound/Lab mix. It wasn't uncommon for her to jump into bushes on walks and come out with a bird. The first time I called the vet and he said it was just protein. We finally had a deal where it just had to be gone before we got home. Generally she ate it in one gulp.
  2. We go out in the morning about 7:00, when I come home (about 4:30, but it can be as late as 5:30) and then before I got to bed, about 9:00. I free feed so they eat whenever they want, but I find they like to eat at night, usually between 9:00-10:00. I crated when I first got the dogs but now they have the run of the house. We walk for 10-20 minutes each, depending on the time of day. Our longer walks are usually in the morning and night. The afternoon is usually quicker walk, both because I'm tired and because it's hot. I actually don't leave a radio on and they do fine (although I d
  3. Yep, turns out it is a virus. Poor Mason had a temp of 103.6 and he's dropped 10 pounds (I almost cried). He's on doxycycline and Rhimadyl to help bring down the fever. We're not testing Molly at this time since she's showing no symptoms other than the sneezing. If she starts showing symptoms I'll call and the vet will prescribe meds. It's my first dog with a fever. Oh, and they're not to be around other dogs for 2 weeks so no meets and greets. Mason is thrilled!!
  4. Right now it's normal but in the past when I've taken it it's always been below normal. Basically. I think the thermometer is off so I'm wondering if he does have a temp. Plus, his nose is warm and he just feels warm compared to the other dogs. I do have antibiotics at home I can start him on.
  5. I took his temp and it doesn't look like he had one BUT it was 2 degrees higher than it has been when I've taken it in the past. I'm giving him a few days. If he's still lethargic and sneezing I'll take him in. Molly's fine. Although, treat one, treat both.

  7. They've never had it before and nothing is blooming. I actually thought it might be allergies to the straw I just laid down.
  8. I think the Twin Terros have colds. They're walking around sneezing constantly. Unsurprisingly, Molly isn't bothered at all. Mason is mopey, not wanting to walk and I think he may have a bit of a fever (I'm going to take it now). I'm afraid they're going to generously share it with the dogs who are visiting us. Poor babies.
  9. Butthead, er Mason was also on a food strike. He finally lost enough weigh that I got worried. I switched foods thinking he was tired of his food (he did that before) and that did the trick. We switched from Iams green bag to Purina Sensitive Skin and Stomach. Let's just say the boy is making up for lost time. !
  10. I tried all the expensive foods and it gave Mason horrible diarrhea. We finally settled on the green Iams bag. He did great on it until Butthead went on a hunger strike. We just switched (back) to Putrina Sensitive Skin and Stomach and he's doing great on that too. (Molly has a cast iron stomach and can eat anything.)
  11. The Twin Terrors love PB. They don't get it often but thy love it. I'm greatly amused when my father visits and he has to make sure he doesn't have the "dog jar" of PB.
  12. No issues here and Mason had a glass stomach. If there were changes he would have let me know.
  13. What a gorgeous boy. I think he looks great where he is. No need to take off anything but I'd make sur he doesn't put any more weight on. FWIW, my friend is doing the green bean trick with her dogs. She bought cans of green beans (.49/can) at the store and she's giving them less than half a can per dog. She cut back a cup of kibble.

  14. Mason has never done well in the car, standing over me, panting and drooling. This trip was worse than usual; panting and drooling to the point that I called the vet halfway to St. Louis. He can't take Dramamine because it gives him diarrhea. We tried Benadryl but that didn't help at all. Any other suggestions for things we can try to make the car trip easier for both of us? Thanks.
  15. A friend at the gym said she gives her dog raw egg yolks and he loves it. Has anyone done this? Is it safe for them? TIA.
