Wiener dogs can be really stubborn, and it sounds like he's figured out he can get away with his behavior. Does he do this when she's not in heat? Sounds like he's being strong willed and thinks he's boss, so an obedience refresher cousre might be in order.View Thread
A stool softener isn't going to soften rawhide, it would only soften normal stool. Homeopathic remedies will not work because of how they are made. Your problem here isn't hard stool, it's a foreign object in the bowel. If she jsut ate it, you might have had some luck with forcing her to vomit, but by the time you read this, that isn't an option. I'm responding mostly to help others who have the same question.
Your best vet is a vet visit, possible surgery, and why are you still giving her rawhide toys if you know she eats them? As you know, they can be deadly for this very reason. I really hope your pup gets better.View Thread
Grasshoppers aren't likely to cause the diarrhea and vomiting... as far as why he eats them, it's because they are tasty, full of protein, and they jump. Does he eat grass along with the hoppers? Sometimes cats and dogs do that when they have digestive upset. Perhaps try a different food if you think his nutritional needs might not be met?View Thread
The cat's eye is cloudy... can you still see the eye, or is the third eyelid down over it? If the vet had the opportunity to examine the cat and says its allergies then that's more likely to be correct that what I can say here. However, I can tell you that allergies aren't something you usually cure all the way so that would explain the recurring symptoms.

Sometimes the experts seem to get really busy. I've noticed the same thing at my other groups, where it will be months and then they will come on. Keep in mind that I don't believe the experts are paid, they are doing these replies on a volunteer basis and there has been less and less support for these boards over the four years I've been here. I miss the experts too.View Thread
Definitely let her out of her crate more often, on a regular basis, because it sounds like she's having trouble being in her crate for that long. Dogs have an instinct to keep their dens clean so she will try to get rid of the mess the only way she can. It probably won't hurt her to drink urine but it's not a good habit for her to get into. Better to give her more frequent breaks and make sure she always pees before going into the crate.View Thread
Clean the litter box carefully so you can see if he is producing anything. Also watch for any signs of discomfort. He might have some discomfort in his rectal area, and that could be causing him to raise his tail. If he hasn't pooped by the time you read this, get him to a vet if at all possible.View Thread
