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.

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Nice Crappie!

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.
    • Fish Head
      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.
