My knowledge is limited, but until someone more knowledgeable replies, GDV stands for Gastric Dilation- Volvulus, which is basically bloating. It is apparently very lethal in dogs. When our vet suggested giving ice to Lucy instead of water, she never...

My Boston Terrier, Lucy, does this. She even does it if we give her the tiniest little bit of water or if she drinks any water from puddles on our deck or eats to...

Well, I just thought I would post an update for those who remember. Our Boston, Lucy, had surgery for her luxating patella in October. It's been a little over a week now since her 6 week post-op check and x-rays. They said everything healed great! So...

Yeah, I would definitely check with how many surgeries your vet does on a regular basis. With luxating patellas, there are three different corrective surgeries, and they can do a combination of the three. Our regular vet only does two of the three, a...

We just went through this with our Boston, Lucy. We are just reaching six weeks post surgery. We were told it's better not to put off the surgery. Because of the rubbing motion of the patella slipping, arthritis can be a problem. We knew we were goin...

Lucy's doing pretty well, she has become accustomed to sleeping in her crate. We put it in our room so she can still see us. She whines occasionally, but I just say, "no Lucy, lay down" and she does right away. Yeah! But, yes, it is a very stressful ...

My dog, Lucy, had a lot of regurgitation problems, and they thought it was megaesophagus. She had to take a bunch of meds, and for a while the vet had us feeding her by hand, making sure to elevate her head. This helped slow down her eating, and assi...

Yeah, the others are right on. I am a dental hygienist, and I've seen this in humans. It's not real common, but it does happen. Your best bet is to take really good care of the baby teeth, and keep them as long as possible. Canine teeth don't decay a...

Well, we finally got to pick Lucy up late Sat. night. They had to keep her a little longer because they did do the palate surger- a uvulectomy. Also, they took out her tonsils, which I never even thought of them doing on dogs, but leave it to Lucy. T...

Yes, we have told the "breeder" about all of Lucy's conditions. I have been obsessed with this forum since I found it (I am much less productive @ work now) and now would not really call them breeders. Their Bostons just had baby Bostons, but Lucy wa...
