mtnmaiden: almost all of my squirrels have disappeared. I fear someone may have put poison down (probably for voles).


ETA: or maybe a family of hungry foxes moved in.

Have appointment at 2. Just gave her some canned food and she ate it. Being a nurse, I got my stethoscope out and she has bowel sounds. I will post after the appointment. Thanks

It sadens me that people resort to poisen and don't think of the consequences to other animals there are other less harmful ways to take care of these rodents.

just an upset stomach is what the Dr said. Metronidazole (an antibiotic) and Sucralfate (stomach medicine) and wet/bland diet for a few days.

Just a suggestion that works very well. I have a Husky that grabbed and swallowed a dead mouse on a Sunday afternoon last year. Our vet was not open and the voice mail referred to a few animal hospitals. I called the Evergreen Animal Hospital
(303-674-4331). The vet I talked to recommended giving the 70 pound Husky 3 to 4 teaspoons of Hydrogen Peroxide and messaging her stomach after each dose. Wait 10 minutes and do this again. Repeat a third time if she does not throw up after the first or 2nd dose. If she did not throw up at all or expel the dead animal bring her in to the vet.

Well after the 2nd dose she did throw up including the mouse. I just had to do this again last week when she grabbed a live animal and swallowed it and it works very well. Use a childs dose cup and just open the dogs mouth straight up and pour it in, hold the mouth closed and stroke the throat until they swallow. It works very well and solves the problem and concern without a lot of panic.

Advise needed! My 11 month old Bernese / perneses / malamute puppies have been raised to run around the front yard when we are out there. Just last week, the girl ran off. we chased her down (she was really far away) the next day, both dogs escaped and ran down the mountain. We do need a new fence (ours was built in the 70's) but I am wondering, why all the sudden they think it is ok to sneak off the property? We have not had to worry about them running off before. Thanks

Natalie, I hope you can give me some advice again. I have a dog who I’ve had since he was 9 weeks old, adopted from IMHS. He’s now 8.5 yrs old. He has recently become a crotch/butt sniffing dog. I have no idea why. None of my other dogs do this and we are never around dogs that do. I was very embarrassed when I recently had family in town and he ambushed everyone who came in the door. This makes me absolutely crazy. He is great at “leave it” any other time but he isn’t phased by that command when he wants to “get a whiff!”
What can I do to make this stop? I know he doesn’t think this is rude, but my guests and myself would disagree. Please help.

Thanks.

IMO, dogs learn the easy path first; i.e., sit, stay, come... beyond that, you may need assistance. In my younger years I did Labrador field trial, my father a great side kick/trainer. Obedience to the nth degree is required, if you want a dog that "heels" without being on leash. my shoulder of 70 yrs old, can't take the tug & pull. My pleasure in walking my dog, is loose, on heel command. Yes, that is normal, not abnormal.
