Re: Chronic diarrhoea

My boy Loki had runny stools for his first year or so. In that time period, I tested with different kinds of kibble and finally settled on Blue Buffalo (Chicken and Brown Rice). This kibble seemed to stiffen up his stool a bit but he still has the occasional bout of loose stool. I hope this clears u...

Re: Vomiting

The X-rays came up negative and the vet thinks that the vomiting was caused by indigestion. He gave me some pills to give to Loki and everything seems to be okay now. Thanks for all of the responses!

Re: Vomiting

It started about a week ago, and yes, I am in the process of changing his food from the puppy formula to adult. He's at the vet right now getting X-Rays. The vet thought that there might be something lodged in his stomach. I hope he's wrong. I'll find out the results after work today.

Vomiting

Hello everyone, My boy Loki (1.5 years old) is vomiting about 2-3 times per week. In the past, it used to just be clear liquid and grass(he loves to nibble on grass), but more recently, he is vomiting up a puddle of food(twice now since introducing the new kibble). I am in the process of switching h...

Re: Barking at other dogs while on leash

As of today, I can get his attention when I'm training him in the backyard. Once we hit the streets for a walk, all bets are off. There are way too many distractions for me to get and hold his attention.

I have a feeling this may take a lot longer than I expect =P
