haha!  You are all too much!  LOL!  I used t have puppies all the time but it's been long enough that I be demoted from an EPP to a UPP.  I'll work my way back up though.

I'm glad I questioned you guys about her food.  She's been scratching a lot and it's definitely not fleas...maybe the food?  Poor baby has little scabs all over her...You can feel them when you rub into her fur.

Where do you buy Innova or Canidae? It's usually not available at Petsmart or Petco right?

After much consideration, I've decided to go with the Canidae.  I am probably going to purchase from a local feed store also...  LOL!  I feel much better about things now.

Thank you, thank you, thank you BPOers!!

Yeah, I can find the Canidae at feed stores too, makes it easy! One store near me had an awesome sale on it last time too. I have the hardest time finding Innova around me for some reason, unless it's Innova Evo.

In regards to the scabbies.  Could it be the heat?  I know that's something I'm going to have to watch out for next summer with Naja.  With her soft undercoat, if the weather is too warm it can cause skin irritation and scabbies.
Oh yeah!  BTW thanks for the food info, I'll be switching Naja on Friday.   ;D

hmmm...I hadn't thought about the heat...  I'm usually fanatical about making sure she's not too hot, but I'm sure it is bothering her.

Jeff also suggested that maybe swimming in the pond water all the time could be the problem.  i guess a visit to the vet will help clear things up.

Oooooh, the pond could be a big problem! Watch those ponds. They can have toxic cyanobacteria that can be deadly to dogs. Look for a scum on the surface. There can also be things that aren't deadly that can irritate...e.c oli, small bugs, etc.

Heat rash also happens in dogs, so yeah, that could be an issue.

I'm not too worried about the big pond on my in laws property...no scum on that anywhere and our Lab has been swimming in it for years with no problems.  The little frog pond next to our front walk is a different story.   No scum on it, but it does look pretty gross and she will jump in and lay in it...It's just big enough for her.  Magic never goes in and has never had skin issues.  We were considering getting rid of the pond anyway, so maybe this will be the deciding factor...

Hello. I am new to this board.  I was researching information about basset hounds and came across this board.  My daughter and I are the new parents of Lola a 11 week basset. Because I was already feeding my 2yr old lab Innova I chose Innova puppy for Lola.  Any comments that would help us make sure we are feeding her the correct amount and kind of food.  One thing I was worried about was bloat and also growing too quickly.  After the vet appt we were told its also possible that she has luxating patella.  So I want to make sure I am doing the right thing with what I feed her and also any supplements that might be needed to help with the luxating patella.
