Re: Kidney failure

Law, at the start of commercial dog food, the main ingredient was meat/ bone meal and corn. Sometime, I think in the late 50s they found the protein could br raised using soybean meal. This formula lasted for a good while till somebody decided soybean meal bothered the reproductive cycle,and corn ,(...

Re: Kidney failure

Perk, I’ve seen mine drink out of the road ditch, jump in the truck and drink out of the water bucket. Most all mine stick their head in the water bucket every time they load. I believe it’s a habit with mine, don’t know about yours. I’m surprised a hunting dog last over two years. They drink anythi...

Re: Kidney failure

Dogs will drink out of any kind of mud hole or polluted water which goes through the kidney. Talked to a vet about how much urin a dog can drink and he said it unblieveable. I’ve seen them drink their fill out of black/bluestump hole water in August full of what ever. I bet if you had some way to ke...

Re: Bobcat hunting- mike kemp dogs

It doesn’t take a special bred dog to rig. 4 out of my no name bred dogs will rig out of the box and will run the game when you put them down, most everybody I hunt with can do the same thing with no special bred dogs.

Re: Kidney failure

How do you know for sure it’s kidney failure? I’ve had dogs for 60 yrs and can’t say I’ve had one to die from kidney failure. Most of the dogs I’ve lost, were fine one day and dead the next, I asked the vet one day And he said MABY kidney failure, he said most dogs die with heart problems.

Re: Scared dog

There is really not a lot of reason a person needs to deal with a dog that’s shy in anyway. When I see any sign of shy,it has to go. A shy dog is always a problem in some way.

Re: A Legend Passes

Was up in Tennessee looking for a squirrel dog and at one fellows kennel I heard a hound voice coming from behind a shed so I walked around to take a look. I asked if that was his coon dog and he said yes and I also use him to breed these cur females to tighten up their treeing ability, your are rig...

Re: A Legend Passes

Most of the stories I’ve read about hounds landing in the hounds of people that carry them to a level of conversation by other hunters was not an accident but really wasn’t planned. Usually a relative or close family friend migrated to somewhere west of the Mississippi with their coon hound or hound...

Re: questions/thoughts about fox hunting and foxhounds

A person could fox hunt old English style on horseback in my area but it would be a lot thicker. The 2 yr old clear cuts wouldn’t be all that bad but you couldn’t run full speed without some horses and riders being hurt,skidded ruts would get you.ivefox hunted from the early 50 up till now and trott...

Re: Tapeworm help!

I’ve raised dogs in the same pins for around 30 yrs. Dirt floor. I only use ivmectrin once per month and something like safeguard or valbasen ever third month. Never have a worm problem of any kind. Flush the ground with Clorox year round at least every2 months.

Re: Maybe a dumb question...

Never really noticed dogs eating,but we raised a good many hogs to butcher and I always feed hogs. I fed ear corn and I really like to watch and listen to hogs eating corn off the cob and rooting around, they seem to talk to each other with grunts and sounds. The lot even had a different smell at fe...
