mrsl3un9 :  I just wanted to comment on the dental – bladder thing. My dog kept having bladder infections and we finally discovered she had to have some teeth pulled. The vet said because her teeth were so bad (and I felt terrible that we didn’t know it), the bacteria was going throughout her body and affecting her bladder. I was surprised that it’s all entertwined like that, but it is! So hopefully it all clears up once the teeth are taken care of.

As for the video, I’m afraid I’ve never seen that before. Poor baby. I hope you find an answer.

mrsl3un9 :  I’ve never seen that before either.  Is he on any arthritis supplements?  Maybe put him on that and see if it helps.  Good luck bee!

I want to mention that poodle mixes, or small dogs, are very prone to something called Subluxating Patella. It comes in different stages of severity, but basically it means that the kneecap has popped out and then popped back in. My poo mix has it, and it’ll pop out, she’ll start to whine, limp, or act like she’s in pain until it pops back in. My last dog had it so badly it wouldn’t pop back in on it’s own. My current girl pops back almost immediately. We thought she had pulled a muscle at first, and two vets missed it – my hollistic vet is the one that finally cought it. 

Also, some cranberry juice in their feed can also help with struvite crystallization of the bladder. Also, double check your dog food – is the calcium ratio balanced with the phosphorus? Is there a tremendous amount of corn / soy / gluten filler in the food? Is it preserved with any of the nasty preservatives that we wouldn’t think to eat ourselves? The vast majority of dog food contributes in large part to stones, arthritus, dental, skin/coat and ear issues. It’s really worth looking in to – some of the expensive brands aren’t as good as you’d think.

I am a certified dog trainer with the AKC, and I have a tremendous amount of nutrition knowlege if you’d like some help with anything. It’s my useless talent. Lmao.
