These dogs have got to watch their teeth...

Food, Fitness and how to keep them healthy.

another dog bite in less than a week. Inara grazed Score the other day while playing...nothing major, but made him bleed. I swear, he's got skin like paper. :nono:

Now it's Ripley's turn...Gibbs got him on the ear as they were playing in the yard. Rip is feeling like hot crap lately, and pushing himself too far...(body slamming the youngsters and being an ass)...and Gibbs is feeling cocky and sure of himself. Again, nothing major...but because it's an ear, it's gushing blood...and with his white fur ruff, it's really noticeable. :rolleyes2: I'm going to kill them all.

Gibbs really needs a new home...he's pushing Rip too much lately. I should have put Rip away...and let the younger ones play. *smacks self* bad mommy! Now I feel guilty.

Idiot dogs.

At least Rip doesn't mind...he's a true herding dog, he let out a yelp, and kept running around. I then saw blood on his ruff and checked him out. Otherwise I wouldn't have noticed. Now he's got his head wrapped in vet wrap and his tongue in the peanut butter container.

Lol, don't you just love multi dog households? It seems like there is always something happening to one or other other and one of them is ALWAYS sporting a nice fresh wound

Gah, ain't that the truth. I came home to a limping Doogie with a wound on his paw. I was just at the vet with Alfred on Tuesday, a different vet with a boarder to today and tomorrow back to the vet I go. :rolleyes2:

I'm sorry that Rip got hurt, but the part about the vet wrap and peanut butter made me smile. Sending healing thoughts and gentle scritches to Ripley.

I do have some pics of him with his head wrapped...with his face in the jar...I'll post them soon. He's stopped bleeding now, and I've gotten a good look at it...it's not deep at all, and I've clipped all the fluff from around the site. Dogs... :rolleyes2:

Ear flaps suck. Wilma pierced one of Buford's ears in two spots and it was bleeding like crazy. I forgot where I'd put all the bandanas so I wrapped him up in one of my silk scarves and took him to the vet like that. It was pretty embarrassing for both of us, walking into the lobby...... :oops:
