    At A Loss... What Should I Feed Her?

    Just wanted to post an update. Izellah has had the most perfect poops since switching her over to raw. It was a bit rocky at first but she adjusted nicely and now I have piece of mind knowing that I don't have to worry about diarrhea anymore and bad gas. Thank you, everyone! :D Her coat has also...

    Dog Constantly Jumping!

    I don't crate her for stuff like that because I was told constantly to not use the crates as punishment so I've always been afraid to put her in there when she's acting up. Could it be her heat? She's on her heat right now and I've noticed that she's taken an extreme interest in male dogs as...

    Dog Constantly Jumping!

    Izellah is a good dog, I'm not going to lie but I'm at a loss on how to fix this problem I'm having with her and it's driving me crazy. She has these moments of "outburst" where she will go nuts and won't listen to anyone or anything we have to say. When she isn't having these burst of energy...

    Stripping Undercoat?

    Thank you! I had no idea. :) Will it be like this when she gets older as well? A ton of hair came off, I had to empty the vacuum 3 times.

    Stripping Undercoat?

    I was wondering if anyone else has to do this to their bulldog. I've noticed that Izellah sheds a lot in the spring and fall but almost never a single hair is noticed in the winter time. Last year fall and this spring, I've had to strip her coat by hand. Although she isn't a breed with a wire...

    Appropriate Age To Spay?

    Does that mean it would be okay to keep her intact for the rest of her life? I've heard about mammory tumors and pyometa which I've done a lot of research on but it hasn't made me come any closer to a decision.

    Appropriate Age To Spay?

    Izellah is a little over a year old now and I'm wondering when I should have her spayed. I wanted to keep her intact until she has completely stopped growing because we do a lot of activities together and I want her joints to be in perfect condition. But I'm not sure if spaying her now would...

    At A Loss... What Should I Feed Her?

    Okay, great! I will take this into consideration next time. How do I calculate how much calories she should be getting a day? Since it's so hot here, we haven't been able to do much more than very short walks and lots of backyard time.

    At A Loss... What Should I Feed Her?

    Oh, really?? I didn't know that. I'm seriously going to considering giving raw another try then. The nutritionalist I spoke to also recommended it but I'm not sure what type of plan she is going to create for Izellah. How long should the diarrhea last when you first start feeding raw? I figured...

    At A Loss... What Should I Feed Her?

    I don't have access to Doctor Harveys unfortunately. I'm in Canada. Update: I've contacted a canine/feline nutritionalist in the city and they are going to help me create a meal plan to balance Izellah's diet and improve/resolve her digestive issues. :)

    At A Loss... What Should I Feed Her?

    She tested positive for giardia but they couldn't find any active ones in her sample, just traces of an enzyme that usually appear when they've had giardia. I think that is that the vet said.

    I dropped off the sample a few hours ago. They said they'll have the results by tomorrow.

    At A Loss... What Should I Feed Her?

    She hasn't been checked for worms but she's been dewormed a few times. Could worms be causing this?

    Introducing Izellah Arabella!

    Hey, everyone! I'm new to this forum. You can call me Sousanna. I have an OEB named Izellah Arabella. But we just call her Izellah or Pumpkin. She is my first bulldog and definitely won't be my last. She turned 1 year old today! Unfortunately, due to the circumstances, we aren't able to...

    At A Loss... What Should I Feed Her?

    What test would have to be done to determine if she has leaky gut or IBD? She was at the vet not too long ago when the diarrhea got really bad. They gave her medication, did blood work, and took an x-ray. The vet recommended bland food until the diarrhea subsided because they couldn't find...

    At A Loss... What Should I Feed Her?

    I feed her about 2 - 3 cups of food a day because of her activity level, she burns more calories. I tried cutting back because I know too much food can give them a runny stool but when I did, she started losing too much weight and appeared abnormally skinny. Wellness Core Six only has 6 main...

    At A Loss... What Should I Feed Her?

    Yes, I do. I transition for 1 - 2 weeks depending on her poops and if she's passing a lot of gas and just her general response to the food. Then, she will stay on that one food for at least a month, sometimes a bit more. But if she's having a really hard time with it, we take her off of it and...
