973741 tn?1342342773 Well if we go back to first principles with dogs...we get to wild dogs and wolves. Now sure -they don't usually live as long as our canine family members, but they eat mainly meat, animal tissues, cartilage and some bone. They do snack on berries sometimes, and maybe other things, and are likely to eat the stomach contents of a prey animal (usually a herbivore) And grass to a certain extent. But we never see them devouring a wheat field when out hunting!

I'd mention it to the vet next time you bring him in. As far as I know, vet's don't fill caveties. They just pull the teeth. Dogs and cats can do quite well without some of their teeth. I had to have my dog's tooth pulled in the front because it was abcessed. You wouldn't know it the way he eats! He's a piggy!
Avatar n tn Working and hunting dogs are part of our everyday activities. I average a 9 pup litter a year and only sell the dogs as hunting dogs. There is a huge demand for such dogs here and I could sell 20 a year if I could handle that many. The problem with over population of dogs is more prevalent in the cities where I do think dog ownership should be controlled and restricted to those who can prove they are able to care for a dog and provide the dog with what it needs.
Avatar f tn She also was running around with her hackles up and starting fights with my other dogs...She only had 3 or 4 days of it and then I took her off of it this last Sunday was her last dose...She still is not wanting to eat and not 100% back to herself? How long do the side effects last...It was taking me an hour and a half to get her to eat 2 cups of food...I'm really hoping she will return to her normal self again soon...Any idea how long before it will be out of her system?
1500294 tn?1290272209 Yes dogs can and often do -get gum disease. It does usually affect older dogs though. But it could be that you are brushing too hard? I don't know.
Avatar f tn Bad breathe in human or dogs, is a sign of something not right....I would let the vet know, its probably bad teeth...bad teeth stink in dogs... Welcome to dog forum, please check in with your comments, plenty people here with very informative suggestions,.... And, bad teeth, dogs can get that easy....my female has bad teeth, and I thought I took excellant care, but each dog different...just the way it is sometimes.. Good luck...
Avatar f tn Who she was previously placed with, whether they went hunting with her, whether she lived with other dogs, small or large, and how she used to behave amongst other dogs prior to you getting her.
Avatar n tn Try to remember that doxies were bred to be hunting dogs and can be quite fierce. I'm glad to hear you're planning on training your new dog. Too often the smaller breeds go without obedience training due to a very mistaken impression that small dogs are "safe" dogs and couldn't possibly hurt anyone. While they may not be able to inflict the same damage as larger breeds, they're very capable of causing bad wounds.
Avatar m tn An infection in the oral cavity can spread through the body and cause all kinds of problems. There are 3 things that I have used that you might want to try before you go to the vet (not in place of the vet). The 1st is liquid chlorophyll. You can rub in on the dogs teeth and gums four or 5 times a day. You don't rinse it out and it won't stain the teeth. Chlorophyll is a natural antibiotic and disinfectant. It also promotes healing of infected tissue.
Avatar n tn When my son gets here I was considering giving him a Binky because baby's seem to love them and they are life savers! But I've heard the cause buck teeth, or rotted teeth and its very hard to get them off of it. Any opinions?
Avatar f tn My female lab was hunting and on way home she caught toenail on steel grate of trailer..she walks with limp till she walks for awhile..I soaked it in epsom salt since I'm not at home seemed to help someis there anything else I can do????And can she hunt...
Avatar n tn As LostGrrl has said below, most dogs will do very well despite the loss of a couple of teeth. Most dogs have 42 adult teeth and the loss of a couple of incisors (the teeth in the front) won't likely slow her down. It is BEST to try and save the teeth if possible, but the health of the whole pet needs to be considered as well. If you are uncomfortable with the dentist's assessment, there are several other veterinary dentists in your area.
178590 tn?1294176767 Hey, I have 2 black and tan coonhounds and a bluetick beagle!!! (There's a pic of her in my photos) I tryed hunting when Dh and I first got together but I'm just not a killer, I'd feel awful every time. So, I'll just leave that part to him. I like to go along coon and rabbit hunting just to see my dogs in action, I'm so proud of them! I also have a beautiful fancy in graved Browning 20gauge shot gun to pass down to my children if they decide to hunt.
Avatar f tn Hi, teeth aren't really the concern. Her teeth now are the baby teeth and yes, they can become crooked. But she has adult teeth growing under her gums that won't come in until she is 5 to 7. I was a thumb sucker way back when and it was a big trick at family events to show how I could slip my thumb under my front teeth without opening my jaw (I know . . .YUCK! but I was a kid and thought that was cool!) Anyway, my permanent teeth came in straight and I have never needed braces.
Avatar f tn It alsmost sounds like kennel cough. Is the white stuff foamy? The tooth loss sounds like her adult teeth are coming in??? Can you look in her mouth? Have you seen the lostteeth? If they are baby teeth they will be small and very sharp. When is she due back at the vet? She'll probably need antibiotics for the cough. Bordatella vaccine to prevent kennel cough. Sometimes it takes a couple of rounds of antibiotics for the cough. My dog did.
931246 tn?1297902651 Well, walks (aka hunting or checking out their territory) are a HUGE thing for dogs, so getting left out gives the message that they don't come first. Is it that you aren't physically able to walk them, or that they're not physically able to walk? How big are they? Can you put them in a pram or kid's wagon? If they are small, you can put them in a backpack.
Avatar m tn I have almost no permanant teeth. Not sure if this is true but I had a full mouth x-ray and I had only 3 roots. I did however, save my teeth that fell out when I was little and supposely gave way to permanant teeth. It's strange though since I saved 9 teeth and I only have 3 teeth with roots. Does this mean that I have permanent teeth without roots? If not then what pushed my teeth out then?
712964 tn?1287076618 do any of you like hunting and whats the biggest deer you've ever shot mine was a 10 point this year what about fishing whats the biggest fish you ever caught and what about hunting other games?
Avatar f tn Hello everyone. I'm only 19 weeks with my first little one and my family and I are going hunting next week. Is ok to shoot a gun while pregnant? I just don't want anything to happen to baby and have something go wrong.
Avatar f tn m really worried about this type of paci giving her buck teeth. I can already tell she has a bit of an overbite, but I THINK (from looking at pictures) I had this too when I was a baby and I never took a paci of any sort. I now have perfectly straight teeth, with no help from braces, etc... What do you think? Would this type of paci cause buck teeth? Should I take it away now, even though it is going to be a LONG, HARD process?
