    The emergency vet tried epinephren (sp?) along w/ IV, oxygen etc and she had started to respond but that was likely an hour after being bit (or whatever) so too late. Others have suggested I look...

    Boy that's an understatement. I bottle fed the pups for the first 10 days solid, starting out at 1wks at 2-3 hr intervals (oh did I mention they were born 4 days early, too?? Eyes didn't open...
  4. Another heartbreak - Anaphylactic shock... do you know the signs?

    Don't rush it. Spay surgery is major stuff... I'd wait at least 3 wks before doing anything intense. 2 wks just to return to "pet" activities (climbing stairs, etc). Anne

    I'd want a cardiac test as well. Our regional lab club now recommends that Echo be done. With as many dogs as I've heard of recently keeling over, I hope more will do at least the basic test. ...

    I am glad you got some answers too. I know it is difficult at the time of death to have to make that decision but I think it does help to put things into perspective. Take some comfort in the fact...

    I've used the nylon/ velcro ones (like Pup colors) for years. They wash well, but close up the velcro if washing w/ blankets or anything that sheds lint to protect the velcro.

    Puppies need nice older dogs to play with and give direction to. I am blessed to have several girls here who help raise my litters and would never dream of putting one out the door until all of the...

    I'm so sorry for you and know exactly the nausea and fog you are in today as I'm right there with you. I too suffered the loss of a 4yo just 10 days ago due to anaphylactic shock (necropsy...

    Good luck finding Lepto vaccs w/ much more than 9 mos expiration date and if you do, please let me know! I can only find the Vanguard L-4 at one supplier consistently though I'm trying to convince...

    I'm not sure I'd be that confident about passing elbow prelims (at what age?) vs finals. Go to the OFA site and I think it's in their FAQs page but the reason OFAs are not final until 2yrs is due...
  15. How are you going to afford the breeding part...

    How are you going to afford the breeding part (time and money aspects both) if you can't afford to put a title on such an outstanding bitch? It is a concern I have. I have told any and all who...

    The male / stud has to first get the conversion to Full. Since it was the kids at fault, he'd probably be forgiven for the "oops" breeding. So that happened. NEXT, the BREEDER(of the Oops litter)...

    Read my post again. This dog was never even registered by the owner. The resulting puppies were sold to people w/ full knowledge that they were unregisterable, by that person's choice.... not mine. ...

    For one, the AKC seriously opposes selling puppies for more w/ papers vs w/o. I would think differing prices based on Full vs Limited would be portrayed the same too, but I don't really know.

    I do the same, though minus the clicker. I do use a marker word though (Yes!). I think it all depends on what else you are doing w/ your dogs too... I do competition Obedience so Stay means don't...
