First, Edith. Our elderbull. She has developed a cough. The vet checked her heart and lungs with an xray. Her heart is enlarged from the heartworm damage but everything else checked out fine. We are waiting on blood work to come back today but in the mean time the vet did want to start her on an antibiotic to get ahead of a possible bacterial infection. With this, we would also like to start her on a Probiotic to keep her system running and offset the antibiotic. Edith is in need of the Primal Defense Probiotic.
Second, Bernie. Bernie came to us with bladder issue including blood in the urine. Since then he has been in and out of the vet trying to figure out what is going on through xrays and an ultrasound. Yesterday, we got news that it is chronic cystitis. In order to treat this he needs to be on an a few different supplements along with raw food as it has the most water in it. Bernie is in need of the Primal Defense Probiotic, Solid Gold Berry Balance, and Aspen Flexile Plus.
Thank YOU to everyone who has donated newspaper. We greatly appreciate it!!

"Dog tolerance comes from a blend of nature and nurture and is influenced by a dog's genetics, socialization, training and owner management ... not "How he was raised." You ultimately hold the key to your dog's success with other dogs." ~Bad Rap
We so often hear that people want a puppy because they don't want a dog aggressive dog, they would return a dog if it became dog aggressive, dog aggression is a myth and the list goes on.
We want people to fully understand that dog aggression happens and if you are adopting a dog you need to be prepared to deal with it. Bad Rap has a great article on understanding dog tolerance levels around other dogs.
This is Livia when she came into rescue September 2014. Since then she has done a complete 360 through chiropractic, raw food, and other holistic vet care measures. But, we have to keep up on her chiropractic care to keep her body moving well. Livia goes to Rhythm Of Life Animal Chiropractic once a week. Each appointment is $40.
Ellie came into animal control as a stray. Shortly after entering animal control she gave birth to 8 puppies. This is Ellie's first and last litter. She is about a year old. Ellie does great with cats and dogs. She was pretty skinny when we picked her up so we are working on getting weight back on her.
Ellie's puppies will make their appearance later today so stay tuned!
