General Board for Big Dogs with Big Paws / We got lickers! HELP!!
« on: January 22, 2009, 12:49:30 pm »
hi everyone! i need a lil help. my to pups are HUGE lickers! i know they're pups so i wasnt to worried about it but nothin i seem to do will stop them! sometimes it seems they dont even know they do it. haha mooney my pit/mastiff will just set there licking the air and when someone comes in the door or sets down they walk or run(which im trying to work on that to) to that person and starts licking the crap outta em. i stop them but 5 sec later they go at it again. right now i go and make them lay down in the room(with the door open) until i say they can get up, just to calm them down. but how can i get them to stop or at least calm it down a bit? its just so crazy how much they do this. any advice PLEASE!!!!

ok so i've been taking my two pups to the vet once a month getting them both two shots each time on vets orders. i was wondering if thats right? it seems a bit much to me. i've had my boys for 3 months now and haven't had a puppy before that since i was 13 so i don't know for sure. not only is it very expensive but it just seems odd to me. but i'm prob just out of the loup! haha i'm going to ask around from other vets in our area but i'd thought i'd check with anyone here first to see if thats right or if i'm just being to paranoid?

thanx again yellow dog mom! the vet said he was pretty sure thats what it was, just that something had gotten in his gums and was irritating him. and since the swelling went completly down and he showed no signs of irritation or pain he wasnt goin to run a bunch of expensive test but said only to watch him and if it did happen to swell back up and ice cubes did not work after one day to come back. so i finally got to breath my first big sigh of relief after about 18 hours! lol

i have yet to take pike to the vet yet his app. is a little later today but when i woke up this morn the  swelling was down alot, pretty much back to normal. he does go outside alot by himself and is ALWAYS chewing on lil sticks and stuff. so i did give him a bunch of ice cubes last night. it was just so strange and quite scary waking up to see his face like that yesterday. thanx for your help!! let u know how things go.

ok so i was wondering when puppies teeth can their mouth or the general area around their mouth swell? like around their nose? cause my puppies did or at least im hoping thats what it is. it just happened earlier today. iam taking him to our vet tomorow but was just wondering if that could be the reason. im real worried about it. it doesnt seem to bother him. he eats fine and still chews on all his toys just fine with no apparent pain and he allows us to look in side his mouth. any advice would be greatly appreciated!

i forgot.... i FINALLY got a pic up!! haha
