Does Degenerative Myelopathy Hurt? Even though it should be common knowledge by now that degenerative myelopathy is not a painful disease there may be times when your dog can’t get comfortable and starts to whine and may even seem like its in pain. I want to re-assure you that degenerative myelopathy is NOT a painful disease however, it can be very frustrating for your dog.

Thats why you should always give your dog lots of physical exercise to keep them entertained and...

Lately I’ve found that Wrangler no longer feels the urgency when he needs to pee.   He used to go right out in the morning and now he only goes out because I’m forcing him too.   For example,  he can easily go to bed at 9pm and not wake up until 9 or 10 in the morning.   I try to get him to go out around 11pm but it’s not always easy. I started to notice that when he’d go out for a pee it would smell very acidic.   I originally thought this was because he wasn’t drinking enough water and was becoming dehydrated.   Although Wrangler is usually very good at...
