Hi. My name is Joe and I'm new to this group. I have a question. I have a poodle, miniature, 8 yrs old. He has awful smelling breath. Earlier this year he had lyme disease. When I took him to the vet I mentioned his bad breath, but it was an afterthought. I'm not sure, but the vet never gave me an answer about the breath. Anyway, after he took his antibiotics for the lyme, his breath seemed to get better. That was in February. Now, his breath stinks again. Any suggestions? We moved to Florida in March, and he had some stomach problems in the mornings, but he's been okay of late ( I chalked up the early morning stomach problems to possibly be related to the awful water we get here). Any thoughts appreciated.

Two nights ago, Reka started acting frantic about 11pm. I let her out. It's coyote breeding season, and she is fascinated by them. I assumed she wanted to go out and listen to them howling. I brought her in, and she spent the night franticly and desperately demanding to go out.
After about 4am, I finally put her in the barn, locked securely in a horse stall for the night.
She came in by morning, and had a normal active, playful day. Last night, at 11pm, She franticly DEMANDED to go out. I let her out, and brought her in. At midnight, she DEMANDED to be let out. I let her out, but I went out to the barn and got a crate, and decided she could spend the rest of the night in the crate. We were NOT going to do a repeat of the previous night AGAIN.
At 3am, she whined so loudly, I then decided not to allow her to set a precedence of this type of behavior. So I took her crate out to the heated gun shop and decided to let her act out her bad behavior in peace, and send a message that her obnoxious behavior was not going to be tolerated.
This morning at 6am, I went out, and she had vomited (normal looking dog food) and defecated in her crate (not normal for Reka, but then, She normally didn't sleep in a crate, NEVER gets corrected (she never does anything to GET corrected for) and was probably nerves from the outside experience, plus reprimand and solitary confinement.)
I let her in the house while I cleaned the cage. Hoping I had made my point. She acted healthy and normal, and playful and chipper. But then I noticed a spot of blood on the bathroom linoleum and in the bathtub. I was the last to take a bath, so I knew REKA was the last in the tub.
That blood didnt come from me, so it HAD to come from Reka. Thinking about her nearing the end of her heat cycle, I still didnt think a lot about it. I thought her obnoxious behavior the past couple nights WAS her heat cycle.. and corresponding coyote breeding season.
Then while feeding her breakfast, I saw the whole story. She had blood (fresh) streaming from her RECTUM. UhOh.
I had her at the vets office this morning before he opened. He just said her intestines were all bunched up with huge air pockets.
Was there any chance that she ate strings of carpets? I said, last Thursday we took a plastic tarp out of the yard that we had over the grill to protect it from the weather because she was chewing it. That would explain EVERYTHING.
The strings are binding and bunching up her intestines, cutting her internally and tying her intestines in knots as it works its way through.
Reka is in a very critical situation. She is going to require extensive and expensive surgery that I cant afford. I will manage.
Even with the surgery, her condition will be critical for awhile. Scary thoughts. I would never have treated her the way I did last night, if I had even a clue that she was sick. I feel so badly. -- diddy

Actually, I borrowed the vets office kitten once for a couple days for school education on pet care and safe handling as well as responsible pet ownership.
I kept the kitten over night in a crate within a crate and yet my dog (yes, Angelic Danny, as well as Taya and Toby tore that kittne to threads from between the crate bars. (apparently he stuck his paws through the crate to bat at the dogs. I was out doing yard work and rushed in to find the little kittens pieces and parts being torn through by ALL the dogs.
I called my girl friend to come get my dogs. I screamed displeasure, and stalked out with the kitten. Danny, et al spent 3 days in a kennel until I finally felt like I could interact with them without doing bodily harm. All three dogs were never touched, but knew they had done something so unspeakable that I wouldn't associate with them and they got banished.
To this day, Taya (mom and Dad's dog) and Danny will not look at a cat. When confronted with one, Danny wees himself and cowers hiding behind me for help. I'm not saying this would work this way with all dogs, But mom and dad now have a house cat, and she has never been harmed by any of the dogs. Danny is there all the time, unsupervised, and has no interest in harming the cat.

And no.... we went to watch. He sold nothing. btw.. are these "CATS" feral domestic cats? (sorry not familiar with Oklahoma) (I just shoot the DSH cats.

Here it would be abuse. If you like your cat you keep it home.
I run a state authorized and monitored nuisance animal trapline.
This morning there was a cat in a snare. Ordinarily, an animal caught in a snare can be released unharmed. One of the animals I am targeting is coyotes (and the complaint was that coyotes were killing area cats) Duh..
If your cats are becoming lunch for wild animals, to me .. It makes sense to keep your cats in where they can't become lunch.. whatever.
Regarding this cat in the snare. It went nuts. It leaped, and tangled itself, and most certainly strangulated it's intestines. It had the snare pulled tight down to the diameter of a dime (just large enough to encircle the spine) around the waist area.
This cats snarled, and attacked. Trying to extricate this cat was exceedingly difficult, not to mention dangerous. Because I feared damage to the intestines and death of the gut, I imagined this cat was not likely to survive.
It would have been much simpler to dispatch the unfortunate cat and take out the dead body. Instead, this cat wore a collar. it deserved a chance, and the owner deserved closure. (no id on the collar) .
It escaped, just as I released it and it couldn't be taken to the vet for examination. I will probably never know if this particular cat survives the experience or not.
People in the area were aware that trapping was being done and apparently still let their cats run free, b oth endangered by the traps and by the coyotes being targeted that are causing a problem with their cat population.
Had that cat not been wearing a collar, I would not have tried to release this hostile cat. Releasing it may not have been a kindness, but then... cats weren't supposed to be attracted to this type of trap, in this position, and then they weren't supposed to go ape, to get themselves in this situation. If you like your pet, you keep them home.

Yeah. Like you missed my information on breaking dogs of CHEWING and besides, you was too busy jerking and choking and scolding your dog.
> It got quiet once I learned effective killfiling.
Didn't it though??? Seein as most every thread is about Jerry Howe and why you should KILLFILE the INFORMATION you bums need and don't have cause if you admit to using my methods, your pals will be EMBARRASSED after they've been tellin everybody my methods don't work and I'm a liar and con man.
That's O.K., diddler. I PLANNED it like that... I'm a dog trainer.

INDEED, but HE sees yours, diddler.

Like your dog came close to not existing anyMOORE after chewin up some stuff and got HURT on it.
Cost you THOUSANDS at the vet??? At least $1500.00, eh diddler?
> until you mentioned that it's apparently a problem for you
Seems Jerry's a bit of a problem for ALL of our dog lovers... who like to jerk and choke and shock and spray aversives in their dog's faces, diddler.
Have a little whine to wash down the strings of carpet your dog swallowed cause you used it to cover something else he was chewing...
> A Salute to Casey, and sent with sympathies.
Save it diddler, you need it for yourself.
You could have avoided the entire incident had you TRAINED your dog using my methods not to chew stuff. But you'd rather force, intimidate and barricade instead of handle and train your dog like a respectable dog handler and decent human being. Adios... Thug.

My girl developed really bad breath when her anal sacs were infected. It too got better when she was on anti-botics, then got bad again but it turned out the infection came back. It's been cured for a while now but for some reason her breath is still a little stinky but we can't find anything wrong with her (physicals and blood tests reveal nothing and she acts just fine). If you would post when you have your answer I'd really appreciate it.

O.K. NO PROBLEMO! We got LOTS of real helpful info:
MENTAL ILLNESS IN RPD* Mental illness is a public issue in these newsgroups. People are always running around calling other people mentally ill and diagnosing their illnesses. I think it's only fair that we have an accurate list of who is and who isn't mentally ill, so that we can avoid any misunderstandings and promote group harmony.

Since I posted this, my dog's breath has improved greatly. Maybe it has something to do with his diet (he eats dry food for breakfast and wet Pedigree for dinner). That's probably not it because I haven't fchanged his diet... Anyway, old fishface is starting to smell a little better! If it acts up again, to the vet he goes.
