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.


Is this normal?

We got my German short hair blue heeler mix fixed Thursday. Friday she tried to lick it so we put the cone on and whenever we can watch her like bedtime and when we leave we cone her. Well she has bad separation anxiety and has to be caged and gets super excited to see us. So the one day we left and she had moved the cage like crazy and she jumps on us when we come home. I try my best to keep her calm and mot jump cuz of the surgery so I wanna see if this is healing ok or not I don't think they did the best job gluing her shut either

    I an not a vet.. but appears to me it might be slightly infected.  Did they give her an oral antibiotic to take when you brought here home.   If not you might want to take her in to have it checked.   It wouldn't hurt to maybe put a little antibiotic ointment on it as well.   Just make sure she does not like the ointment off. 

    No Longer Lost BOL
