A week ago, my husband and I went out for a walk with our English Bulldog. It was about 8 PM and it...

    General Question 1st Heat, Swollen Vulva

    Hello! Just joined- 1st post. My 7 mo old OEB is experiencing her 1st heat. Her vulva is very swollen. Is that normal? I also have a 3 yr old male (intact) that believe Lizzy needs help keeping it clean. I’m guessing his (help) may be contributing to the swelling. I’m scheduling an appointment...

Jo went into heat early and was spayed sometime after 5 months. She is 8 months now. When I called the vet, she asked...

    Whoa, Coconut Oil Bad ?!?!?!

    I do like Dana Scott, dog naturally magazine. But I will have to admit, there are sometimes I personally don’t always agree with her. Like essential oils. But.....That being said, “most” of her articles are bang on. This coconut oil article, IMO being on the healthy food industry side, there’s...

    Heats turn into silent heats?

    I hope I'm posting in the correct section. I have a bitch that bled quite a bit during her first two heats. Her last heat was due in August. Her vulva swelled and stayed swollen for 14 days, but she never bled and never showed interest in letting my male try to mount her, so I skipped out on...

    Need some advice on the raw food change...

    SO I have finally decided to switch to raw food, and my local store carries Primal which I thought would be a good start because I can purchase it locally. The idea of mailing raw food in this heat sounds like a disaster waiting to happen, although if anyone wants to chime in about raw food...

    Is a heater a good idea ?

    Since i live in the Southern Hempishere, we are experiencing winter. Our pups sleep in our small living room, next to the kitchen, where the floors are all tiled. It is really the only area available for them. Needles to say it gets really cold. However our dogs sleep in plastic beds, and it's...
