  1. There is a vet in Huntersville that does rehab, she is a new to rehab vet but did a decent job with my dog that severed her digital flexor tendon. I believe I previously gave you her information? SHe is not afraid to consult either. Let me know if you need it again
  2. Yes, they make medication shampoo for dogs. I used one 2x a week on mine. Hexadine or Duoxo are 2 of the brands I have used.
  3. This dog has always been a poor doer with a voracious appetite, to the point where I think people thought I didn't feed him even though he eats 6-8 cups a day of food. His case is very mild, he was never to the point where he wasn't able to function or look totally emaciated but he was always thin and ribby. His bloodwork always comes back normal and finally I have a vet that had an explination for the large quantities I am feeding him. He has started on medication and looks almost like a normal dog! Just wanted to see if anyone else had dealt with this before.
  4. Someone may have already asked this previously, but has your vet thought that maybe you are dealing with 2 different things? Could the respiratory symptoms be secondary or non-related to the wasting problem?
  5. I have a youngish dog, 2.5 yrs old, that potentially has Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency. He is being managed well at this point and it is thought to be a very mild case but it seems that it is mostly found in GSD and rough collies. He will be tested for it soon but just wondered if anyone else had seen this in border collies? Or has any experience with it.
  6. You are going to have to look in the rural area's of the NC mountains to find land that isn't going to give you sticker shock
  7. I hope this link works http://www.vsmr.org/diplomates.html Here is the most recent list of certified diplomates http://www.vsmr.org/_pdfs/ACVSMR_member_directory.pdf and their contact information. One seems to be located in Raleigh NC
  8. I use prozyme for my hard keeper dog as does my sister. Seems to work for both our dogs quite well and is somewhat inexpensive
  9. I recently lost 3 sheep in a dog attack. Animal control was present and I was strongly advised to bury them deep, off my property if possible and cover with lime because the smell of decaying animals would "attack every coyote within 10 miles of here". So that is what we did. They were buried on a farm 15+ miles from here where there are no other sheep. I know we had a large cat population when I first moved here, 2 of the cats died and I buried them very deeply and covered with a medium sized rock (medium sized in relation to the rocks we have here underground that are the size of my house). Within 2 days the rock was moved, hole was dug up, and the carcass was gone...
  10. I have wanted to find a bigger version of the plastic ones in corian!!! Maybe I just have a big mouth but the shape of the plastic ones fit, the size just isn't wide enough for me so I almost spit it out when I blow!!
  11. I just got a large varikennel off of craigslist for $10, in perfect conditon because they guy had lost the screws that screwed it together! Good thing you can buy them online for less than $5
  12. Were the lambs grain/corn fed before being out on their own? Would the owner of the property let you set up a panel lot where the lamb could get into the feed and the cows couldn't? If she then became used to going into the lot to eat you could eventually be in the area and use a dog to block her escape?
  13. I too have a thin dog that does well on fish formula foods, only certain ones though. He seems to have food allergies. He also gets prozyme in his food to help his body absorb the nutrients and much as possible. Those 2 things have really helped this dog who throughly checked by the vet several times!
  14. There is a sheep dog trial coming up in either October or November at Rural Hill Farm in Hunstersville, NC. Since its a Open/Nursery only trial the handlers that will be there are Open handlers to the top end of the sport. I can't remember the exact dates of the trial right now!
  15. My working dogs both have 24petwatch insurance and I have made a claim with them. They are very easy to work with, paid out up to my maximum with very little question and the checks go to me quickly. It was great to have it when my dog was unexpectedly injured. I recommend it to anyone that wants to know about it!
