  1. Yeap! I have placed neosporin on wounds lots of times it works great and heals fast. I am sorry to hear about ford! I guess even in the animal world there are lessons to be learned! Best of luck!
  2. I can understand your frustrations. When I brought Lukas home from the shelter he was great. He was fixed and well his mudes changed. He was very agressive toward some people, and also urinated in the house. On our 52 inch TV no less. It got to the point where I actually had to muzzel him because I was afraid he would bite. TO be honest with you it was alot of work and love. But he had to learn to trust us. These are the steps we took. First we got a crate and re crate trained him. He was thrilled with it but with time it worked. We got a spray bottle with water for when he did mess in the house. We never hit or spanked. Since we didnt know his history we didnt want him to think we were just another person that would hit him. (the vet seemed to think that he was abused) When he had an accident in the house we told him he was bad and give him 1 or 2 sprays and then took him outside. We said lets go out. In a positive voice. When he went outside we praised him. It took almost 2 months to get back on track but it happend. As for the agression its a scary thing. To be honest I dont know what we did that fixed that. We took him for walks to show him that there were alot of people around when he would Bark or groul we would just tell him NO in a firm voice. Like I said when we had people over if we werent sure we musseld him. He didnt like it but he had to see that people were ok and that there wasnt anything to bark or groul at. The other thing we did was told him to get a toy when someone was comming over. The vet thought it be a good idea to keep his mouth full so giving him a toy worked for us. since his mouth was full he didnt bark and just walked all around and wagged his tail. Becareful with this though. He loves our pillows from the couch, but he always goes to get a toy. I wont lie to you it was a scary process it was learning experience for us all. Luke is now almost 6 and doing well. He isnt agressive and doesnt bark or groul at anyone. I cant remember the last time he made a mistake in the house. Things to keep in mind because you dont know his past you never know what he went through. Always be positive recognize his error but praise the positives. Give Lots of love and take for walks. We only used the mussel for about 4 month and only when people came but you need to be able to trust him as much as he needs to trust you! Best of luck to you! If you have any questions or concerns please dont hesitate to ask! I hope if nothing else I gave you some confidence. I am new to this site! :)
  3. I would like to thank you for your kind words. I sat down tonight and watched a movie thinking just relaxing is maybe what she needed. It actually seemed to clear up slightly but not much. I am hopeing all is well, I am spending home all day with her tomorrow and will do more checking online and through my local vet. Now she is sleeping like a baby!
  4. I have a two year old Golden she is the love of my life. I just got home from a long day out actually it wasnt that long less than 5 hours. I noticed that the white portions of her eyes are red. I have never seen this before. Of course I will contact my vet but I was wondering if someone might be able to shed some light on this so I can stop panicking. She is acting normal and does not appear to be in any pain at all. I joined this site tonight just to ask this question I am not familiar with how it works. I will leave my email address because I am not sure if I people reply through this site or through my email! Forgive me! my email is [email][email protected][/email] and my little girls name is Shelby. Thank You Happy Holidays!
