    Herschel Choking, Seizures, Or...?

    Herschel is 8. We have always fed him kibble With no issues. In the past year he has began to have bouts with either choking, seizures or something else while eating. At first i thought seizure for sure. Then I noticed this always happens when he's eating or just finished eating so I thought...

    Grain Free and Heart Disease...

    I took Herschel to the vet today for his yearly and a skin booger. I mentioned that even after backing Herschel down to 3/4 cup of food that he has gained weight (He's 82 pounds at 6 years). She asked what, when and how much food. We feed him Fromm 1 time a day. He gets Turkey for the usual good...

    Herschel Holds A Grudge, Doesn't Like New Puppy...

    We got an 8 week old female pit on Monday. The first 3 days were bliss. They played and everything seemed good and then it happened, Herschel attacked. She may have bit him while he was lying down to start it off but now he has tried to get to her while we are just sitting around watching T.V...

    Breathing ?

    Anytime Herschel has to go to the vet, or anywhere out of the house he becomes overly excited. He had to go to the opthamologist this morning and the wait was long. His tem went up to 104.3 and of course his breathing was crazy. He is still snorting and breathing erratically, or heavy. IDK how...

    Entropion Surgery...

    After getting conflicting opinions about whether or not Herschel actually needed the surgery he started to develop and ulcer. We took him to an ophthalmologist, they stapled his eyes open and we scheduled the surgery. I am now having second thoughts because I am afraid for Herschel to be put...

    Entropion Question?

    Our vet quoted 2100 bucks for the surgery including $200 blood work (thyroid). This seems high based on the internet research I've done, although those numbers are not bulldog specific. They also want to keep Herschel over night which I'm sure jacks up the price. Does this sound right? Recs for...

    Random Aggression... Holding A "Grudge"

    Herschel has random acts of aggression. I say random as in we're talking rarely aggressive, but he seems to remember triggers and elements that he may have become territorial over, even after the trigger is removed. One example would be a case of water bottles left on the floor. He was in rare...

    Fromm Sweet Potatoe & Duck

    Anyone have an issue with this food? We recently bought a bag and Herschel seemed to do ok with it the first couple of days. Days 3 and 4 he has been having the runs at night, very watery. He eats early in the morning so I would have thought a digestive issue would happen in the afternoon. He...

    Buttermilk...

    Do you give your dog buttermilk? I've read mixed opinions about it online, par for the course, but we always have some leftover after recipes and was trying to find good use for it.

    Mean Dog...

    Hello everyone! Unfortunately my first post in awhile is filled with angst (my wife's, lol). Herschel turned 1 in December and over the last month or so he has come to love HIS space. That's pretty much whatever area he is in, has been, or might wanna' go. We have 3 other dogs, 2 pits and 1...

    General Question Mullett...

    Anyone see a problem feeding mullett as a source of protien? Since I live in FL. and pretty handy with a castnet, I thought why not. In my mind it cant be any worse than "whitefish", right?
