  1. Anybody here check out the Trader Joe’s supplements they have for dogs? I just saw them in stock in my area. Made in USA... Thoughts/comments?
  2. Took me a minute to figure out at first but my grey thrives off the 3 meals. Glad to hear it works out for you as well. I will give my grey a dog treat or two, as well as a dental treat a day and no weight issues. She has maintained the same healthy weight consistently. Vet and I are pleased. I personally enjoy eating in a similar fashion Few small meals and a treat or two. Random Fun Fact: noticing my grey’s bald thighs are getting more furry. Someone’s gearing up for Wisconsin fall(winter)/winter.
  3. Three smaller meals a day. Bedtime snack is a must or my girl has stomach issues. She can’t go very long in between feedings. She is on the smaller side.
  4. Is pancreatitis mainly caused by dogs getting human food or too much high fat foods at once? What are some of the other causes for the dogs/greys here?
  5. A dremel is the only thing that is used on my grey. She has naturally long quicks so I have the vet staff do it.
  6. My grey just might be one of those that needs more frequent dentals too. I am hoping after this next dental she can go a little longer in between, but time will tell :-)
  7. Thanks for all the feedback. I have posted in the hookworm thread prior and tried various treatment protocols as well as spending hours on research. I didn’t take the hookworm issue lightly. My grey was treated consistently with dewormer since I’ve had her. I will get bloodwork done on her prior to the dental. There were no comments from her adoption group about her previous one. I will be sure to confirm my vet uses appropriate anesthesia protocols for Greys. I will take off work for the cleaning and the next day also just to make sure I can monitor her 100%. Patrick’sMom, that’s awesome you avoided extractions with the annual cleanings! Very proactive! I am glad they all went well. So good to hear. Until the dental I am going to continue with brushing and giving her daily dental chews, that she enjoys.
  8. This is very reassuring! I appreciate your feedback, thank you.
  9. A few months ago my female grey (4 yrs old) was seen for her annual wellness exam. The vet suggested she may need a dental cleaning and would have to be sedated for it, since I asked if there was a less invasive one they could do while she was awake. I realize this may be terrifying for dogs either way. He said he would check her at her next exam to see if he would still recommend the cleaning. There was only one tooth in particular that looks like it needs some more serious cleaning. The gum line is red and there is much plaque/tarter on the back tooth. I give my grey a dental chew once per day and do brush her teeth regularly, although I need to get better about doing it daily. She does have bad breath, which can be caused by gut issues too. I am nervous of her being put under for this possible cleaning with greyhounds being so sensitive with things like that. She has a history of hookworm and I expect she will have them life long. I have concern that if she is put under that will cause another load of hookworms to emerge so maybe she would need a Drontal dosing afterward? She is currently on monthly Advantage Multi now. The adoption group I got her from had done a dental when they got her (2 years ago). Grateful for that. I of course will talk more in depth with the vet when the time comes. I know good dental health is important for both dogs and humans alike. I have never had a dog who needed a cleaning so this is new to me. Has anyone ever had their pets vet suggest a dental for one tooth in question? Not all vets are the most grey savvy so I would like to see other people's experiences with dental cleanings etc. Please share your thoughts/opinions and suggestions. Thank you in advance.
  10. My grey seems to like the Nutrisource Chicken & Rice-large breed. I am happy with the protein being 23% and fiber 5%. I do have to order it online though. I also use Purina Pro Plan and have tried the Savor as well as the Salmon sensitive Skin & Stomach. All result in decent stools for her. Good luck with the food search!
  11. These greys look soo much like my brindle girl!! Piper especially, OMG! Could be the twin of my grey. She is the sweetest thing too. I am so lucky to have her. Her sire was BD’s Grayson who is the son of Dodgem By Design.
  12. Smurfette, I hope you have a fast recovery! Paddy is there for you :-)
  13. Can’t imagine the shipping being too much...how do we do this? Not sure if I can receive a personal message or..?
  14. I have a few extra Fresh Factor supplement bottles that I would be willing to give away to someone in the Milwaukee, WI area or could ship locally. Had some Grizzy Omega Health dog oil too that I wont be using for my grey. Might donate that to a local humane society... Spring cleaning.
