  1. How long have you had your greyhound? Has he been tested multiple times for hookworms? That really should be your next move before trying anything else. Olewo carrots would be at the top of my list to try. Although many may suggests pure canned pumpkin (not pie filler), that has backfired (literally) here. Neither of those will help long term if you haven't treated for hookworms.
  2. Morning. Heading out to go walking shortly. Heavy rain last night is making for a cold, damp morning.
  3. After gaining 6 lbs. from early onset panic eating, I finally got "woked" and have returned to low carb land. The 6 lbs. are now gone. Been walking 3 miles each day and today bumped it up to 4 miles. Lucy, did your AC/heat pump ever get fixed?
  4. Miss Jennie! This post contains a clown so close your eyes! It's scary owt there!
  5. Morning Velvet, currently in lickdown Eggsellent line, Velvet!
  6. Andrea, I like the idea of having ICE contact info for the dogs. I take pictures of each dogs' vet papers showing they are up to date on vaccinations.
  7. I have limited experience in dealing with seizures. Do keep a record of the length of each seizure and the time in between them. Keep us posted. Editing to add a link: https://vcahospitals.com/know-your-pet/tramadol
  8. Was your partner leaning over him at the time? Did this happen right after you greeted him? Any chance he fell back asleep before she greeted him? Does he have any hearing loss that you know of? Emergency Departments and medical personnel are required to report dog bites, even if it's your own dog. You might get a visit from an Animal Control officer. Provided he was up to date on all vaccinations, Billy should be able to "home quarantine" with you for 10 days. That includes not taking him for walks. If you get any pushback, tell the officer you are getting support from your adoption group.
  9. What time is it Tiger? "20 minutes before my rear end."
  10. I'm so sorry that your Luna had to leave you. I will add Luna's name to the list of Bridge Angels. She will be in good company.
  11. That's great news news, DaveS. GFNC is back on the approved list of groups allowed to get dogs says GPA. A big bunch of 'em arrived in Wilmington yesterday.
  12. Definitely have your vet follow the protocol on the Dr Jennifer Ng link. She's become an expert on dealing with hookworms. You'll need more than an ordinary dewormer. The protocol should be followed for at least a year, even if you have a negative test.
  13. Yes, she can be called a podenca, but right now she wants to be freed from the cone of misery.
  14. Bill, you can search for pannus stories using the search box. Here's a list that popped up for me: https://forum.greytalk.com/search/?q=pannus&quick=1&type=forums_topic&nodes=10
