The Truth About Ear “Infections”

My own experience with ear “infection” I learned the hard way about how serious ear inflammation can be after my Cockapoo, “Coco”, went deaf at age 9. Because of my ignorance, my dog had to live more than half his life without the benefit of hearing voice commands, approaching cars and growling food-possessive dogs, one […]

Are Heartworm Preventatives Necessary?

Dear Nora, I just “found” your blog when looking for information on Grapes and it is very helpful!  I looked as best I could and did not find any posts regarding the monthly protection we are routinely instructed to use to prevent heartworm and Lyme disease so I wonder if this is something you have […]

Chronic Kidney Disease in Cats

Dear Nora, Sadly, my 14 year old cat has just been diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease, and they are approaching it with fluid management (IV fluid therapy, etc.).  They want to keep him initially in the hospital for a few days of fluids and then do fluid boluses at home.  They said it can´t be […]

Constant hunger

Hi Nora, I have been feeding my dogs a raw meat diet for 8 years.  Last year, I started including fruits and steamed sweet potatoes (rotating them as suggested with the raw meat).  I noticed this REALLY helped my 13 year old black lab who, before this change, had really bad breath and small growths […]
