    Oh my, I've had dogs like that too in the past. One of my Dals shredded any fabric he could get his mouth on. It was once recommended to me that when I would give Rescue Remedy to a dog (or any animal), that I take it too. Wanted to add that to the conversation.

    Reyah's Mammary Tumor

    Reyah's condition got the best of her and she died last Friday afternoon. I am most grateful and appreciative of the attention, care, and compassion Reyah and I received from @Dr. Jeff in the hours before her death. She's buried in my back yard beside my beloved Tassule. It's been 10 years...

    Lytic & mothy hip bone, possible bone cancer

    Wanting to share my limited experience with the ketogenic diet with Reyah (history of, and current, mammary tumors with metastasis to lungs). I too was concerned about pulling away the really good variety of foods from her diet, but most of all her joy of eating. Eating and going for walks...

    How to Prevent Many Dis-eases in Your Pets

    Need Creative Bandaging Ideas

    @Dr. Christina -- I always do because I learned that from you! I used to keep a small bowl of water with Flea Free in it along with her regular water. The fleas are pretty much gone and she started drinking from the regular water bowl. Now I have RR in her large bowl and that's where she...

    Need Creative Bandaging Ideas

    Thanks @amyland -- I found a washable diapers that I used for my big lab a few years ago and wrap them around her the opposite way that they're supposed to be used. Putting nonstick gauze inside for absorption. They look like this: Cleansing with goldenseal and using the Stem Gel green tea...

    Need Creative Bandaging Ideas

    Thank you both! She was wearing a t-shirt when I first brought her home with an ulcerating mammary tumor years ago so I've already tried one. I used one of my old t-shirts and actually think I need a child's shirt. And maybe putting something absorbent inside. I wasn't able to find the exact...

    Need Creative Bandaging Ideas

    Hi all! Looking for ideas on how to deal with my 11-year-old Springer Spaniel, Reyah. She has a large mammary tumor that I'm addressing with @Dr. Jeff. It's located in front of her back right leg. Reyah is able to lick the tumor and she has licked a small area open, about 1 x 1.5 inches...

    Answers Dog Food Question

    I see...we should meet at Doglicious when you're in this area some time! Yes, I use the Vitality Blend that was talked about during that Empower Hour along with broccoli seed extract that can reduce tumor growth/size. That's my simplified explanation! Thanks Liz!

    Forgot something -- @Dr. Christina , @Dr. Jeff , or anyone... Looking at Kent -- STOMACH, APPETITE, wanting -- this is how I described Reyah close to the beginning of this thread, always wanting to eat. How is wanting different than insatiable and/or ravenous? She has never stolen food from a...
