    I am trying to get to the eye health section but after navigating back & fourth all there is is a picture with yellow eye discharge but no link. Btw, I never received the health care manual when I subscribed, is that for paid subscribers only? Anyway I need suggestions for clearing up the yellowish discharge that suddenly appeared


      Do you mean Eye Infection?
      It says it's not public but is in the Dog Health Manual.
      You got it, likely got lost in SPAM?
      If you can't find it anymore, can you simply click the link to it that was in the Welcome email?
      The download will still work 🙂

      Yellowish discharge, yes, is an eye infection. I suggest you do as I say there, it helps. Miguel had it too when a puppy.
      Let me know in case it doesn't significantly improved within 3 days, okay?


    I discovered your site via Google at the same time as searching for a related subject, your website came up, it appears great. I have bookmarked it in my google bookmarks.

    my 2 months old gsd had a problem walking his lower limb has weak dn some times he walk ang run normaly and some timea he stable ang defficult to stand


    My pet's stool is loos most of the time, it also contains mucus. She doesnt like to eat suddenly but she is active. i am not able to understand what is happening to her. She is 50 days old germal shepherd.


      You will need to take her to the vet, Ankita. She's a very young puppy and you don't want to take the risk she has sth more serious. It MAY be entirely harmless, mine has mucous stool too every so often, BUT runny stool "most of the time", that is problematic. What's the smell like? The color? The frequency? What food?


    Great write-up of common dog health problems. Much appreciated.



    Here is our description: 5 y.o. GSD female, moved from MD to NC 3 years ago. Never had allergy issues until 18 months ago. Red inflamed skin, yeast infection in ears. Always on flea and tick meds. Vet gave antibiotics to break cycle - and recommended having her checked for allergies, we went to a place called Glacier Peak Holistic and had a DNA swab and tested.

    She came back allergic to every meat except pork and turkey, plus many grains, vegtables, and environmentals. We started feeding her 50% pork vegtables, and beans that she can eat, with 50% kibble of pork/butternut squash (from holistic vet recommend). She gained 7 pounds in 2 weeks, and her hair came back thick under belly, teats turned from black to natural pink. She never stops scratching but greatly diminishes. Wearing cone to minimize chewing. Spring hits and she is blown up again - hair everywhere, still wearing cone, cannot be left alone, once she is allowed to start licking, leads to chewing or scratching herself raw. She had dug so hard with her back legs she punctured her sides. She is forced to sleep beside me but wakes me 20 or more times a night. I do not know what else to do. She is on flea and tick meds and there are no fleas on her and we have looked. What is next?


    I love the info on this. I wanted to use it for my dog breed paper which is due jun 18th, but i need the date of publication and the doi , page numbers, for an apa paper.


      For scientific citation you need the URL and a footnote "Online resources are valid at the time of review, but they may have moved, changed, or disappeared since then."

      If your institution digresses from this standard, you can't use anything online (because next to nothing will have that).


    How can I get the book on DM. My GSD was just diagnosed with it. I've read what was posted, but I'm very interested in the diet. I am also going to ask my vet about the medication. We live in Connecticut.
    Thank you so much.


    Gotcha, thank you.


    Tim, I forgot to mention Jedai is 16 weeks, I know I posted his age to you on another area with a different question I had, but don't expect you to remember.



    Hi Tim,
    Jedi is on antibiotics after contracting an intestinal virus he likely contracted from drinking free standing water in our yard. He really scared me because he stopped eating/drinking for two days, was totally lethargic, and had bloody diarrhea and vomiting. I really thought he may have contracted parvo. He is due to be vaccinated this week for parvo virus. Saturday I took him in and the vet diagnosed him with an intestinal virus and prescribed the antibiotics. He has had three pills so far. Dosage is twice a day for a week.I am hesitant to continue with them after reading one of your books on avoiding antibiotics. Do you think I should toss them or continue this prescribed regiment? Also, I was informed that GSD's have more sensitive digestive tracts and skin than other dog breeds. I didn't know that. I' m learning all the time. Thanks so much for all you do, it is much appreciated.



    Some great tips and advice for treating skin conditions. Sammy has been to the vets several times but the treatment only lasts a short while. I will be trying your suggestions and hopefully Sammy will be on the mend soon. Thankyou



    Thanks, a must read for all GSD owners/lovers!! Can't get enough of this kind of brainfood for my Heidi!

    ps...I just became an official MEMBER!!! and love the first interview straight away! All should do the same; well worth the pennies. Thanks again Tim, keep up the terrific work.


      Thanks Debbie, you got my email wink
      Just realizing, you posted here on GSD Health page, I always forgot to write it somewhere: The Interviews and Reviews actually cover pure health topics too, yes, it's not all training related.
      Although there is a mix in some Reviews anyway, the first purely Health Interview and Review will be #4. smile

      I can't say much yet but I assume one couldn't even BUY that knowledge and information even if the dog owner visited (and paid) three different vets!
      Obviously without my Reviews that won't become apparent though.


    I've registered for the periodical and get them e-mailed to me. What do I need to do to get a free copy of the Health Manuel?


    This book is brilliant!! I've only had it a couple of weeks and have referred to it quite a few times now for peace of mind! Fantastic thank you.

1. To go live any bark must be relevant to this page idea
2. Be polite, discuss what you found, DON'T introduce yourself with what you want question
3. To fight SPAM anything with a link lands in SPAM. Also don't use: qf ??? \ * { } | [ ] because spammers do
"Published barks will be on-topic, helpful, and further the discussion" ok
