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.


Dog Health Question.

My dog has been healthy all his life so far, Last night though he wasnt as excited when his dinner was being made and he had no interest in eating it at all. It took him almosst 4 hours to finish one bowl of his usual food. Inbetween his eating he was taken out and had quite alot of diarrhoea. He had this again all today and i have found a white worm about 5 cm in length riggling in it. It was only one and i have treated him with Advocate Worming and flea treatment. Is there anything to worry about.?

    Given his age it is possible that because of teething the kibble might be a bit painful to chew. You can try wetting it down with some water or unsalted beef or chicken broth. Worms will definitely make him uncomfortable. I have not heard of Advocate, so I can not speak to that. You might want to take a fecal sample to the vet to determine what it is & which product is best. Side note...Squam has struggled with loose/runny stools for most of his life also. I have him on Prozyme, which is an enzyme-probiotic. It has done wonders for his stool.
