GP with skin issues

Posted by Courtney on November 11, 2013 at 11:50am 0 Comments

Hello, my GP is 1 year old and for the past 5-6 months we have had a consistent battle with skin issues, ear and eye infections. It has been horrible! These large red rash patches, (sometimes they are similar to hotspots/sometimes dry red patches) pop up all over her body but mainly on her belly, groin, rear end and arm pits. We have taken her to the vet where they have given her creams, antibiotics, shots etc and while they temporarily last, once the meds wear out she is back to her itchy self… Continue

Hi, Everyone. I have two GPs that are brother and sister, but from different litters. Both are spayed/neutered. I raised them from 8 week old puppies for protecting poultry and sheep. Delta Force (Delta to her friends) is the older and was mature at a very early age (4 months), already living in the same pen with the bottle lambs she had been introduced to in an adjacent pen, when I brought her home. When the babies would pile for naps, Delta would go over and lie down touching the edge of…


Skin Problems?

We have a female Great Pyrenees who will be one this June.  She seems to have some sensitive skin issues so we took her to the vet and they gave her an antibiotic and antihistamine the last time she started to form scabs on her skin on her belly mostly.  We also switched her food to the Blue Buffalo and we make sure she is given her monthly flea/tick medication every month.  The sores are back again and this time they're cover large parts of her skin.  The sores look similar to ringworm and…

Advice On Vinny

Posted by Cyndy Penate on May 8, 2013 at 9:39pm 2 Comments

 Well we've made it thru his first year and though frustrating I wouldn't trade him for the world. He's 17 months old now at 125 lbs and as much part of the family as anyone else in the house. We made it thru his being a bully .....finally think he's figured out that grabbing us, is not the best way to get us to play with him. Now working on the fact that when he's told to do something there is no option of compromising ( he likes to think there is ) He thinks that if you tell him to go…

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to you all.

I thought that some pictures from you over the years would be good this year. The crucifix from Peru has a nativity scene for you to enjoy. We miss Jack Magoffin now. He is pictured here at Christmas 2008. Thanks to Marion, Ans, and Lynn for their pictures.

May the blessings of the Christ child be upon you all this next year.
