Okay, so I've finally taken the kids to a new vet, she's a little farther away, but well worth the drive, only now I have a few questions about things she said to me for you guys.
First of all, she said that the Canadai All Stages that I'm feeding both my little dog and my giant puppy is bad! She says that you could give a tin of motor oil and a dirty ole' leather boot a good nutrition rating if you worked it right. She also said that Naja is growing too quickly, she's 6 months old as of Oct 1 (Happy b-day Naja!) and she's 52 lbs. She seems to think that I should switch Naja back to puppy food, but wouldn't doing that increase the crude protien and promote more rapid growth?
Also she said that Naja has some clicking in her left rear knee that worries her (Naja was running to come inside about 2 weeks ago slid going up the stairs and hit her leg on a wooden post, she limped for a bit, but got over it really quickly, so I didn't think of it to be cause for concern). So my poor girl is to be on leash only for excersize, and no more running around chasing farm cats
. Poor baby. Oh yeah I almost forgot the most important one. The vet wants to spay Naja as soon as possible. Now I heard somewhere that spaying a large/ giant breed before a certain time can cause more damage then good. What do you guys think is a good time to get your girls spayed??
Oh yeah, BTW other then all that stuff she's a perfectly happy, normal and healthy 6 month old Pyr Puppy, who is developing beautifully!
