Dear Dogster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Dogster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Dogster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Dogster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.


My sweet baby Ted is really sick...

he was taken to the vet for a growth removal and dental cleaning on Wed. The blood work came back and he has renal failure. I am devastated! He had been to the vet numerous times for an insect bite that he was being treated for. Any feedback on renal failure would be greatly appreciated. He is still at the vet getting an iv flush. I want to do anything and everything to make sure he is comfortable and may live for years to come. He\'s my child.

    edited 14 September, 2010 Angel Sister Clover had renal failure, and lived for many years. Mumma home cooked for her...and she really believes that helped her a great deal. |:|Ted|:|

    Thank you May! In the last 2 weeks he's been home and doing well. With his kidney food diet and blood pressure medicine, he seems pretty much back to his playful self. I bought an IV flush from the vet in case he starts feeling bad again...hopefully he'll continue to keep hydrated. Bad thing now is he has an abscess and he has to take anti-biotics. Just something else hard on his kidneys. I am keeping positive though and am thrilled that he is responding to treatment. :D

    River...thank you so much for your msg! It gives me a great deal of hope knowing you had yrs more with Clover. What type of home cooked food did you give her? I would love to try it. :)
