Re: Lump on GSP Chest/Leg Area

Lump on GSP Chest/Leg Area

Noticed a small marble sized lump on my 5 year old GSP last week. It is on the left side of his chest near where the shoulder/chest and neck meet. It is hard and movable. It has not changed size in a week. I am going to bring him to the vet but was curious if anyone has seen this. Thanks.

They then proceeded to ask if i wanted the rattlesnake booster.....I am thinking of searching for ...

Does anyone know of any quality pheasant/quail hunting preserves in Southern NY or Connecticut? I heard a rumor that there is one in Westchester County NY but I have searched and not found it.

Re: Ticks and Lyme disease

I would go to your vet and check. Im not sure how they would detect lyme disease, but make sure you get a lyme disease vaccine!

Also try using Frontline Plus, my 7 month old GSP came home with ticks 3 straight days last month. I applyed the frontline and I have not found or pulled off any since.

Re: Cavalier Spaniel and Wirehaired Pointing Griffon

No. I have a German Shorthaired Pointer now. My wife wants a dog. She really wants a King Charles Spaniel but like the Pointing Griffon as well. I would rather her get the pointing Griffon, but either one would be just fine, I already have my dog.

That is just what he said. A wolf eats pure protein, but pure protein is only about 22%. Not the 27-30 percent we are feeding our dogs.

I just wanted to thank everyone for all the helpful posts. He ran in his first JH test over the weekend and scored all 8's. Not bad for a 6 month old puppy. He was able to find and point 3 birds in the 15 minute time. Cant wait for his next leg in a few weeks.
