Cedar Bedding

Recommended Posts

DrJ

I have a 5 month old lab that started sleeping out in the kennel about 1 month ago. Last night I came home late and when he came out his eyes were really droopy and red on the lower lid. I asked the vet about his pink lower eye lid at his 16 week chrck up and he said it's pretty normal for a lab. He slept in the rest of the night and eyes seem much better. Is he allergic to the cedar bedding? Any suggestions for another bedding. Still chews way to much for a pad or blanket. Thanks for any info you might have. DrJ

Does he try to chew everything? My springer has had the same blanket in his kennel since I got him. I say try a cheap blanket or something to test him. We had an old comforter from our bed and thats his kennel pad now. He's never torn, chewed or even had an accident on it. Usually if its part of their "bed" it becomes something safe.

my lab has the same thing and so did my mom and dads lab. i seams pretty normal, it just one of those thing when they just wake up or dozing in an out, if you start to see it all the time then i would worry. if you see it all the time then i would change its blankets ect..

I am by no means trying to be an expert but I was told by a friend of mine who has owned alot of hunting dogs that dogs are allergic to ceder? Just a thought.

I've owned two German Wirehairs that had allergic reactions to cedar chips we use for bedding. One was a skin reaction and the other was eyes. Now I use marsh hay.

i have a 5 month old lab. the droppy lower lid is usual. Duke, my lab, has had this since around 7 weeks, vet said they grow into them.

As for the bed, Duke is sleeping on a cedar filled bed right now, and is making me jelous, but i have never seen a problem with him and it.

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!

      My advice for ice fishing on Vermilion would be to avoid high traffic areas.  I always believed this before, but this weekend seemed to validate that theory. On Thursday my neighbors in our ice fishing village decided to plow roads, driveways, and parking lots all around, and I only caught 4 little walleyes. Friday I planned to take my portable out to an isolated spot, but none of my village neighbors were out that day, and the fishing was very good.  I caught 14 walleyes that day, including 21" and the pictured 26" and 24" slotters. Saturday I thought that maybe the fishing was just picking up so I fished in my permanent again.  Caught only 2 walleyes while my neighbors proceeded to have a big family gathering with many vehicles going back and forth. Love fishing in my permanent house, but the next time it starts to get busy in the neighborhood, I am moving out with my portable.
