While I haven't experienced this myself, I've heard that plain yogurt works wonders...if you can get them to eat it, and if it's really colic. If you decide to try this, make sure it's PLAIN yogurt, no flavorings. And don't get the stuff with asparta...

LMAO: nice one, P2.
Thanks everybody for putting in your $.02. It's all appreciated. I have decided that it would be better to leave them be, and let their new parents clip or grow out as they please. I guess I maybe didn't want them to look neg...

Thank you, CDM; I appreciate your candor.

I know I've posted it somewhere else in here, on another thread, but I've found the most effective, safest, and cheapest way to treat the poop-eating affliction.
Crushed Pineapple.
Completely safe and healthy to give to your dog, and they a...

I've used Capstar before. I LOVE it!
My male dog was on Frontline, which was working pretty well. I took him with me to Miami, where he picked up some very resilient fleas. My vet gave me Capstar to use, even with the Frontline on his skin alrea...
