No Bones

4 posts in this topic

Just wanted to give a little heads up to all the people who feed their dogs any kind of bones. Two weeks ago I went out fishing at three thirty in the afternoon and when I got home at seven thirty my four year old lab was dead. I brought her to the vet the next day and he did an autopsy and told me that she died from complications of trying to digest deer bones. I had thrown a deer carcess out in the yard after deer hunting for my dogs to chew on like I do every year and appently she had some splinter and tear up her digestive tract. She then developed pancreites which caused her lungs to fill with blood. The vet said that this can happen with any kind of bones and said that no bones of any kind should be fed to a dog. Hope this helps somebody from making the same mistake I made. She was a great hunter and our best friend.

So sorry to hear of your loss. I stick to raw hides and only give them to my dogs when I can watch them.

      Tomorrows weather is looking nice, after that not so much.  The big boat is still in winter storage and BC's boat is getting a new transom.  So it might be put the dock in and work on the transom kinda weekend.

      So, opener is only two weeks away.  Who's going to make the trip to Cass and Kitchi?  And the big question, with this nice spring weather pattern we are experiencing.  Is it going to finally be a nice opener?
