empty your dog's anal sac yourself. If your dog starts doing the buttscoot you need to do this.

best way to clean teeth, esp. the rear canines. does not work on the front teeth though, so brush the front part with a toothbrush

raw meat also eliminates bad breath, increases energy levels, improves coat shine and more healthy stools. (tight and solid)

it is recommended. I still use some kibble but I give the dog one small chicken drum stick a day.

also do not neuter your dog. very bad for the dog.

imagine if someone cut off your nuts, you wouldn't be the same personality wise. also causes obesity and various other problems.

USA = freedom. They just made it illegal to scale your pet's teeth without a license. USA is the most regulated country on earth. I dare anyone to deny this.

Quote:Recently defeated legislation in California would have let unsupervised nonveterinarians perform services to remove deposits from pets’ teeth.
Meanwhile, officials with the California Veterinary Medical Board are working on regulatory changes that would clarify that using metal scrapers to clean a pet’s teeth, or scaling, without veterinarian supervision is illegal.

Susan M. Geranen, executive officer for the board, said the California Code of Regulations has prohibited unlicensed and unsupervised pet dental scaling since May 1990. She said that while people are allowed to perform dental scaling on their own pets’ teeth, the Minimum Standards of Veterinary Practice state that unsupervised nonveterinarians are only allowed to use tools such as toothbrushes, gauze, and toothpastes to clean the teeth of clients’ pets. Clarifications that were proposed in fall 2011 and could be enacted as early as August 2012 would explicitly state that dental scaling is the practice of veterinary medicine, although Geranen said the existing regulations are clear.

On Feb. 24, California Assembly member Martin Garrick proposed legislation, Assembly Bill 2304, that would have allowed nonveterinarians to use nonmotorized instruments to clean teeth above the gum line for cosmetic purposes. The Assembly Committee on Business, Professions, and Consumer Protection defeated the bill April 17 with six votes against the legislation and none in favor of it.

The California VMA announced that day that its opposition to the bill had mobilized more than 7,500 people who had contacted district and capitol offices.

Quote:THUNDERSHIRT OVERVIEW

ThunderShirt's patented design applies a gentle, constant pressure that has a dramatic calming effect for over 80% of dogs.

Most effective anxiety solution as voted by veterinarians
Already helping hundreds of thousands of dogs and cats across the country
Great for storms, separation, travel and many other anxieties
No need for training or medication

so basically it gets rid of anxiety by giving the dog a mild bear hug?

It is sort of like swaddling.

I guess it didn't matter whether we elected Clinton or Trump.

We also got him one of these:

We noticed an immediate change in his energy when we first put it on him. In fact, we took it off then put it back on just to be sure. If anybody has a dog with social anxiety, I absolutely recommend a Thunder Shirt.

hmmm.. never heard of the Thundershirt before. I'm interested!

As soon as we put it on him, his energy changed from nervous/anxious/excited to merely excited. Immediately. It was a night and day difference.

interesting. Swaddling is making a comeback.

This is why I don't really pay attention to scientific studies. You can find a study to support ANY POSITION.

Quote: Some modern medical studies indicate that swaddling assists babies to sleep, and to remain asleep; and that supine sleep lowers the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).[1] However, one recent study indicated that swaddling increased the risk of SIDS.[2]
