Oh yes. Next month he’s going to get neutered. I was told he has to be 6 months old at least.
Yeah, I think I’ll hold off on the supplements until I see this new vet. I will def ask her.
I love this dog so very much and will do anything for us to be happy. I can’t find a positive reinforcement behaviorist around my area as of now. I’ll see what this vet says. If anything, she can probably recommend one to me too.
Thx for the info Aimee. 🙂 I will keep an update.
I’m in NJ. I was also recommended nuvet supplements for his carpet chewing behavior. I was told it’s a vitamin deficiency he has.
I will look into those links now. Thank you so much.
Thank you Aimee.
Before you mentioned a vet, I was thinking of taking him to a holistic vet. I found this lady.. http://www.holisticvet.us/treatments.html I see she treats aggression too.
I took him to a regular vet to get a regular check up, but I’m not sure if he checked his liver.
As for the behaviorist, it was pretty much poke, shhhh, & ignore. If he got too aggressive, pin his body down til he stopped moving and count three seconds.
I held his mouth shut today when he was trying to bite. I’m thinking that was my mistake, bc when I was bathing him he snapped at me when I tried washing his jaw area. I won’t be doing that again. But the other technique helped some, but my sister said it hasn’t. Mind you, I don’t live with them, so it’s kinda hard for me to see every day.
Yeah, we gave him baths. I do need to get conditioner bc his hair gets so dry after washing. I figured it was the food bc I notice the scratch right after eating. He has so much hair. Hard to see his skin. I’ll try to look again.
Thanks for the response. Yes, we all love him very much.
As for the itch, I brought that up to the vet and he said he has none. His next vet appointment is next Saturday. I will bring it up again.
I’m also thinking of seeing a holistic vet too.
Ok. So 9 hours later, his poop came out good! I’m thrilled. Hard. Very tiny mush, & hardly any smell. Wasn’t as much as this morning either.
