  1. where on the Optigen site does it show cheek swab? And where does it show the pricing difference between the cheek and blood tests? thanks so much! I can't seem to find it! Duh!
  2. Very interesting! I had done the blood test with MOTH and it was very expensive to send from where I am!
  3. My boy, MOTH is normal. I haven't tested Drama yet, but her mother is normal, and her father is a carrier. Should she be a carrier, I'm not worried at all.
  4. I've done the pills in the past, but for the past several years I just sprinkle a bit on their food a few times a week. Including the cat food!
  5. I too highly recommend xrays. Depending on what you see there are all kinds of options for treatments. Acupunture, chiro, supplements etc all help my older girl, she's a lab. We have just started giving her a series of Adequan shots and I must admit I'm extremely thrilled with the results we have after only receiving half her shots! Keep us posted on what you find!
  6. Sending all positive vibes from Nove Scotia for Juniper! I hate when they are not feeling well and they can't tell us what's going on. (((hugs)))
  7. I give garlic and last year (we live in the boonies!) on the 6 dogs and 1 cat we have, I picked off ONE tick! This year I am giving Revolution for heartworm but still will continue with the garlic. I hate ticks!!!!!
  8. Names are very personal and who cares if anyone else think they are stupid! People wonder why my red & white border collie is named MOTH, it stands for Man Of The House, as when I got him I had my two blond girls, Zoe & Chilli and was single! He was our Man Of The House! When people hear what MOTH stands for they like it then, but otherwise I really don't care!
  9. We have a combo of laminate, hard wood and ceramic. I love having easy to clean in the house. We have some mats down for my old girl to make it easier for her to jump on the bed, etc, but again, easy to clean! Our dogs are all active and the laminate has been great without any problems! Nothing bad to say!
  10. Welcome to the crazy world of flyball! I belong to a club called Maple Leaps based out of Nova Scotia. I've been competing now for just over 10 years and am hooked! Supplement wise my crew get MSM, Glu/Chon, Devil's Claw and Vit C to help with joints. Best to keep your dog slim especially for dog sports. So much easier on their joints! Looking forward to hearing your flyball training adventures!
  11. To add to Mary's post... a few questions. Is he neutered? what do you feed him? is he on any supplements? has he had any vaccines recently?
  12. Collars are on when we leave the yard. No collars on in the house or crates ever. I have had a friend lose their dog when their collar caught on the crate somehow and came home to see it after work. Same goes when they are out on the patio or fenced in area playing - no collars. Again a few friends have had collars need to be cut off and fast to avoid death when the collar got stuck in the other dogs leg or mouth, etc.
  13. Very happy to read that you are not going to encourage the behavior any longer. I have a little rescue BC mix boy and he was a shadow chaser, it made me cry I felt so bad that the only life he knew before us he had made that his job. Now he once in a while will start to do it, but we stop it and redirect him to do something else immediately and he's quite happy doing it. Best of luck!
  14. Thank you!! I completely didn't even think about looking at the top of this forum! Thank you so much! off to do some reading!
  15. He couldn't see so had no clue what was a threat and what wasn't. He had to be PTS.
