RE: Fireworks

BTW, don't pass up the potential of "chemical" intervention. There are OTC meds and MANY more prescription meds that can be amazingly beneficial in lessening the anxiety. This isn't the old tranquilizers that we used to use but newer meds and combination protocols that can really help. Doug, DVM Yep. We rescued a nine-year old (estimated) Lhasa Apso in March 2020. It quickly became evident that thunderstorms, and then fireworks, were huge issues for her. A Thundershirt helps to a very mild degree. Some Benadryl kinda sorta maybe helped a little more. Talked to our vet about it and he advised trying some trazadone. That definitely helped more than the Benadryl, but as time has gone by it seems to not do as much as it initially did. So I talked to the vet again yesterday and he advises adding in a little gabapentin and seeing how that works. We have storms in the forecast next week, so we may find out then. I'd rather have her a little loopy than stressed out.

RE: Need some good vibes-Updated

I hope it goes well! Someone we know had a wedding in the fall of 2020 that Covid disrupted in a rather major way. But it got done, and the couple came away with lots of wonderful memories.

RE: Dog food

Fresh Pet has been in very short supply throughout the pandemic. For a little while I thought it was getting better, but it seems to be regressing now. I know all the stores in my area to check, but I wouldn't want to have to hunt it constantly in strange territory.

RE: Dog food

I'd look at the first five or six ingredients in the Fresh Pet and then look for a canned food that has close to the same ingredients, especially the primary protein and carb sources. That's no guarantee, of course. But it's how I'd approach the search.

RE: How to discourage territorial barking at home

Scroll down near the bottom of this article and read about The Positive Interrupt. It takes a lot of work but IME it's the most effective approach. And yes, it is (essentially) redirecting with food. The good thing is that once a dog learns the interrupt cue you can use it for redirecting his attention to you whenever needed. It's not specific to one behavior.

RE: What’s with the bags?

I believe they're meant simply as an indication that the vehicle has a mechanical problem, not that it's been abandoned for no reason. Sort of like saying "Car trouble, will be back to take care of it soon."

RE: New study on Neutering/Spaying

Are you serious? California charges more depending on if your dog is neutered or not? And I thought I had seen it all. :S:o Many municipalities all across the country have similar laws. They're not uncommon by any stretch of the imagination.

RE: Behaviorist vs Trainer

The only time I use the term "behaviorist" is when referring to a veterinarian with a specialization in behavior -- American College of Veterinary Behaviorists What is a veterinary behaviorist? Or to someone who is certified by the Animal Behavior Society Applied animal behaviorists are scientists, educators, or other animal professionals with an advanced academic background in the principles of animal behavior. Applied animal behaviorists may have a background in fields as diverse as psychology, biology, zoology, veterinary medicine, or animal sciences. They may work in laboratories, zoos, farms, animal shelters, universities, corporations, or as private consultants (and beyond!). What applied animal behaviorists have in common is the application of scientific principles to improving the care, management and welfare of animals in captivity and the wild. Unless the person meets the qualifications for one of those, IMHO they're just a trainer. But there's no regulation on who can call themselves a behaviorist, so . . . buyer beware.

RE: Dealing with the "Barfmeister"

I agree to get a check up with the vet to rule out serious issues. My thought since it is phlegm coming up that maybe he has acid reflux. That can cause vomiting hours after eating. I've had three dogs who had a tendency toward "yellow foamy" throw up two or three times a week. My vet recommended famotidine (generic Pepcid) for the first one and it worked wonders. So for the other two I just went ahead and gave it a try, and it worked for them, too. If it's mainly happening in the morning sometimes making sure the dog has a couple of dog biscuits or other bland bedtime snack can help, IME. For some it seems to happen when their tummy gets too empty.

RE: MB travel park or Pirateland

Have you already checked that either of them have availability? This is a little late to be trying to get reservations at any of the ocean front MB campgrounds, especially for multiple spots. Our favorite is Myrtle Beach Travel Park, mostly due to the location--it's a lot closer to the things we like to do in MB--and because it's not quite as busy/hectic as the others but still has plenty for kids to do.

RE: 2019–2022 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

I'm looking and listening to hear more about the booster shots! Dr. Fauci has indicated an approximate date of September 20, 2021 for introduction first to those who have an autoimmune problem. Does anyone else have additional sourced information? Third doses for certain immune compromised/immune suppressed people have already been authorized. I had my third dose on 8/16. Here's the CDC info.

RE: Views on when to/not to allow a dog to be social

For us I judge the human attached to the leash and my gut about the dog. ^^This.^^ Although I'd say it's mostly about reading the dog's body language, as well as my own gut instinct. Most people and most dogs are friendly.
