Tear Staining

Monday, December 29th, 2008

Good evening all.

I have a 8 week old pap and he’s a treasure. My question is he has started tear staining. I took him to the vet to make sure he didn’t have an eye infection or a tear duct infection. The vet said he didn’t have either and that some dogs just tear stain.

I was curious if anyone else had this problem and if so, how did you resolve it?

Thank you for y’all’s time.


What to do

Tuesday, December 9th, 2008

I woke up this morning to find that my lil pap had soiled in her cage and she threw up a bit. I took her out to go potty and she did her business. My question is this what do I give her for an upset stomach? I know she ate a big leaf yesterday could that upset her? She also tries to eat her bowel movements so we have to keep an eye on her for that. What do we do about that too? So many questions and concerns. I gave her a bath to clean her up and clleaned her cage all out and her bedding. Now she is sleeping comfortably. I hope she will be ok. I tried to take her temp with an ear temp thermometer but she fought it. Please reply. I dearly love my lil girl.



“Night Terrors?”

Saturday, December 6th, 2008

Lucy, my female Pap is 13 months old. She is a perfect pet in every way, but she has always had what I call night terrors, or very aggressive dreams. Many times (up to 6-7) times a night she will wake-up as vicious as a Pit Bull. Seriously she is growling and very aggressive not towards anyone, just growling and snapping. She sleeps in her kennel at the foot of my bed, so I reassure her everything is ok. I even tried putting her in the bed with me, but she still has these dreams. I wonder if you have ever heard of this and what can I do to help her NOT have these dreams?
