My 3 y/o lab has chronically had bad breath since he was about 1 y/o, no matter what food he is on (currently Purino Pro Plan Lamb & Rice). When he licks you, his saliva residue smells really bad, and can actually feel stinging, leading me to worry about the possibility of acid reflux for him that we’ve missed all along. Is there anything we can try with him either OTC or natural supplements for him to address this? Or does this warrant a trip to the vet to address?
I have a Labrador I don’t know if she is pregnant she has excessive barking because sometimes we put her in the garage and she has her house there and she sleeps with my boy dog golden retriever the point is that I don’t know if Labrador is prevent and I really wan to place a barking collar on her but we don’t want that to get in the way of her puppies she might have but we don’t know if she is pregnant
How can I teach my dog to bark? She is a 2 year old labrador. The only time she ever barks is when she is in her outside pen and sees me drive home from work. That’s when she barks continually until she sees me come out of the house and walk towards her pen. Once she sees me head her way, she stops barking. I always bring her in the house with me when I’m home. When I let her out to pee, she does her business then comes back to the door and just sits there waiting to be let in. She doesn’t bark to let me know she’s back. I thought that because she can see inside because it’s a glass door, she just waits until someone sees her, so I tried waiting her out. I hid and waited. She just sat there staring inside. I’ve tried sitting the curtain. I’ve also tried just sitting on the sofa and ignoring her, hoping she’ll bark to get my attention. She just doesn’t bark. What can I do?
I am looking for a free adoption of Labrador or rottweilers or doberman or any medium breed. Any person who loves his pets and doesn’t make business out of them are requested to give his puppy to me for a free adoption. I live in kolkata,India. If any one has any information for free adoption please feel free to advise me.
My Labrador retriever was just fixed 4 days ago. She has developed a lump on her belly (which the doctor said is normal), but her belly itself seems to be swelled a little & she threw up twice today. What could this be from? Should I take her in?
I have a 3 year old Labrador Retriever. I got him as a puppy and when he was 6 months old I sent him to a 3 month Retriever school for duck hunting. Me and my girlfriend at that time picked him up and he was SO well trained. We lived in Utah and had 3 other roommates. He would listen to everyone. Play fetch with him for 10 minutes inside and he would sleep for hours. We then got another puppy so he would have a brother. They played constantly and were so funny together. The two dogs and be girlfriend then moved to Denver. My girlfriend and I separated not long after moving and she took the other pup and I took Rivers. Living in small towns my entire life I was thrown to the city of Denver with my dog living by ourselves in a one bed room 475 square foot apartment knowing absolutely nobody. I obviously had to get a job and worked a lot so I could afford Colorado. Rivers was left alone a lot and I took him out to rip and romp as much as I could. When I slowly met friends and my new girlfriend I noticed when they are around he sometimes won’t listen to me. He’ll jump on them and if I’m not around they tell me he doesn’t really listen at all. I told them I can’t really discipline him if I don’t see it? He won’t know what he’s in trouble for. He listens to me when it’s just us. The only problem I have is he tries to pull me on his leash sometimes. I was wanting opinions on what you think caused it? Obviously being alone isn’t good. I somehow am just now hearing of WAG walk service and am starting that ASAP. Do you think I can get him back to his old behavior? Also, is him being pulled away from his brother something that could casued any of it? I’m moving soon to a bigger place with a roommate and they were thinking of getting a pup so I wondered if that would help. Any advice would be greatly appreciative! Thank you!
I just saw your video about the high cost some vets and/or clinics are charging to treat our pets.
Our Labrador Retriever was diagnosed with laryngeal paralysis that required surgery. The cost of the surgery was $6000. We were required to pay half to schedule the surgery and the balance the day of surgery. We put the $3000 on our credit card and scheduled her surgery for the next day. Unfortunately our Lucy coded prior to the started of the surgery and we lost her. We were not required to pay the $3000 balance however there were costs involved to dispose of her body, we chose to pay the $350 for her to be cremated.
After watching your video I am curious to know if the $6000 is an average cost for this type of surgery and is customary that down payment is kept if the animal does not survive ? I understand that vet and clinic invested time and assumed expenses prior to the surgery .
Your thoughts are greatly appreciated
My 65 pound Labrador retriever just ate 5 baby back pork rib bones (no meat just bones). I called emergency vet for advice and they said it’s a watch and wait situation. I’m to watch for vomiting and diarrhea.
Will these bones pass whole? I doubt she chewed them.
How long until we are in the clear if she is pooping normal etc?
I’ve had a lab who ate nearly everything but never bones so this is a new one for me and I’m very worried. Should I not feed her and just give water or go about her normal feeding schedule? Is there anything that can be fed to her to help move them along more easily?
My female Labrador retriever will turn 2 this September. Yesterday she vomited some gooey white substance with specks of fresh blood. She is under pseudo pregnancy and has a high temperature too.She is lethargic and is panting but is eating and drinking. She also has excessive hairfall. Can the blood vomited be caused by hormonal changes? We are very worried please help.
