Open Question: Does my dog have rash or not? ?

Hi there, I was wondering if anyone can answer a couple of questions I don’t know about dogs and rashes? I have a german shepherd puppy (six months old) and she appears to have what I would call a rashy type of thing on her legs and under her stomach closer to her ‘bottom’ area. Her fur has thinned on her legs where she has this. In the past she has had ear infections, I don’t know if this is any information of value, because it might indicate allergies. She does vomit if she eats certain things – like grapes for instance! and she doesn’t go well on medicines – when she was desexed just very recently, the medications really knocked her about and she vomitted for days. What she has now looks sort of rashy and bumpy. It is mostly around the top of her legs, close to the shoulder. Sometimes it appears a bit pink/red in some areas. At one spot on her leg it also looked like a hive or nearly a sore of some type, but that has nearly gone away now so its not a big issue at the moment. I don’t want to take her to the vets, because I don’t believe our vets here know that much about this or about dog allergies, so if any ‘experts’ can advise me about this, that would be great… Does anyone know what this could be? She also often itches herself around her neck, shoulder, and hip area. I don’t believe it would be her diet – she is on a very good and healthy diet: raw red meat, chicken mince, chicken necks and drums, vegetables, plus other foods rotated (such as egg, fish, yogurt, flax oil, kelp, etc). Our breeder said the diet is a very good one and has used a similar diet for years with success as do many other breeders we know of. She is a very happy dog and loves people. She loves her walks – even though she’s a bit naughty sometimes (we are obedience training her though…). She doesn’t have many other problems besides the ones I’ve mentioned already. We also have her brother (same litter, same age), and he is very good too (more obedient, haha!). He has just begun developing a kind of rash on his belly also. So we are wondering what this is. His is similar to what she has on her. They are both up-to-date with their worming, vaccinations, and fleeing. Any help would be great… I look forward to hearing from you all! Hopefully I can get some answers to my questions and doubts about all this! 🙂 Cheers, Rachel Thanks for your replies!Oh no, its not that we feed our dogs grapes – she picked one up on the kitchen floor the other day…. then vomited and when she re-ate, she left the grape behind for me to clean up…. Also, as I said, our vets here aren’t that knowledgable about dog allergies and only seem to want to give you this and that medication for them – we like alternatives if possible. They are both well groomed – practically every day or two and bathed every three weeks with sham/cond. (on top of the baths they give themselves in the backyard!) Does this help with keeping ‘things’ (mites and bugs) out their coats? Yes, they love their diet – and also love their bones – they get all sorts from beef, sheep, and chicken to kangaroo which we can get at our raw pet food store here. Its great to feed them a good diet and their coats are beautiful! We don’t want to give them ‘commercial junk’ and we try to avoid medications where possible except the essentials like vaccinations. Thanx

Open Question: Why is my dog doing this and how do I correct the behavior?

I have two dogs, both are house trained and normally pretty good. About a week ago my male dog started whining in the middle of the night to go out. We walk him twice a day and he goes both times. This has been the routine for the two years we have had them. Because he knows he is not supposed to go out in the middle of the night I put him in his kennel for the rest of the night. He then will poop in his kennel. He has never done this before now. So I clean it up and put him back in because I don’t want him to think this is acceptable behavior. He will poop again. He has also started peeing in the house again. Its not marking because he is just peeing on the carpet not against anything like when he marks other places. He gets placed in the kennel for a time when we catch him doing this too. Why after two years has he started doing all this? What can I do now to stop it before it gets worse? First off Its called Kennel training, and this is not a cruel practice. Second my dogs are healthy and happy. I agree with the dog trainer, that a vet visit is required, but I wanted to make sure it wasn’t a behavior issue and not a medical issue. To all you A holes who think my dogs need to be taken away. When you work full time, most people take their dogs out for their morning walk and their nightly walk. This is not cruel practice. And I should add that most the time the dog whines to go out and I have taken him out he does nothing but sits down once he is outside and stares at me, and I have stayed out walking him for half an hour or more at 2 am. He does this so that we will be allowed on our bed at night. And when I did this last night, I got up to take him out thinking he might be sick and need to go extra, he refused to leave the room and went and put his paws on our bed to get up, and refused to go to get his leash to go out.

Open Question: My cats are peeing in my house, how can I stop them?

I have two female cats. Both of them are fixed. I purchases them together so they’ve grown up together. I’ve had them since they were kittens and they are about 2 1/2 years old. I have a dog. We got him in January. He is completely potty trained. We moved into a new house, but we’ve been there since May. They peed a little here and there when we first moved in, but it seems its been getting worse. Their litter box is clean, they are fixed, they are healthy. We went out of town this past weekend and they peed in the dogs kennel to the point where the wall behind the kennel was yellow and the blankets were wet. I caught one of my cats in the kennel before we went out of town, but didn’t think she would be in there peeing. And now the spare bedroom smells really bad like they’ve been peeing like crazy in there. I don’t want to get rid of my cats, it would break my daughters heart to pieces. What can I do to make them stop peeing all over the house?

Open Question: What type of dog is in the movie Beverly Hills Chihuahua?

In the movie, when Chloe is on the train and the little puppy, Pedro, is asking her about her booties, what breed is Pedro? He’s such a cute dog, I wanted to do some more research such as how big they get and level of difficult they are to train. He’s a little brown dog with with black feet, ears and nose. It looks to be medium length hair.Very adorable.I don’t think it’s a Chihuahua, and it doesn’t look like the terriers I’ve looked at.
