Can I give my Shih Tzu human vitamins and brewers yeast?

by Angel Fernando
(Philippines)

At what age is it alright to give a shih tzu BREWER'S YEAST? and how often should it be given?

How about multivitamins? I read some articles on the internet, they give infant(human) multivitamins or vitamin C. Is it alright? Does it have any side effects to the dogs?

My little Riley can't have foods high in protein because of his liver, yet he is a fussy one when it comes to eating, what is the best to offer him to eat?

My Casey Marie had the same condition. She did well on a diet I made for her. It consisted of: Rice, Boiled skinless white chicken (important that it be boiled), and mixed veggies. I would then microwave it a few seconds. Tzus also enjoy small curd cottage cheese & canned pumpkin.... easy on their tummies & keeps them "regular".

Blood in puppy stool

by Melissa
(Blenheim, SC)

I purchased my shih-tzu about 2 weeks ago. He is a gorgeous chocolate color (liver) and we have really fallen in love with him. We have been treating him at the advice of the breeder and the vet for Giardia because after we had him for a few days he started having blood in his stool.

The breeder said with her treatment of worming there shouldn't be any problems but wouldn't hurt to continue worming treatment. The blood has become less and less however on occasion he does have some blood. Now he has become constipated but we are still worming him at the same time.

Could the medicine the vet gave us for the Giardia be causing the constipation? He acts fine, eats and is pottying, but this morning he acted like he had to poop but couldn't. How long should I wait before I contact the vet? The little bit he did poop this morning there was no noticeable blood and after checking on him a little while ago, he was still doing fine, just hasn't pooped.

He is 12 weeks old. Any information anyone can share on this I would greatly appreciate.

Why was my Shih-Poo baby's tail docked when I got her?

by Sherra
(Houston, TX)

My 8 month old puppy is smart, cute as a button, looks mostly Shih Tzu with just a touch of a Poodle's curly hair showing up on her legs & back end. We got her when she was 10 weeks old & I really didn't pay attention to her tail then.

She was tiny & a tiny tail did not look abnormal. As she grows the tail remains only about an inch to 1-1/2 inch. She will never have a beautiful tail that is part of the Shih Tzu look. I bought her from a reputable pet shop, not a breeder.

We love her as is and would never think of giving her away because of her tail, but I just think it was a crime to do this to her.

Is this a normal procedure for a Shih-Poo?

by Anne

I have two adorable shih tzu. The male named scottie age 6 months is already getting busy with his Teddy bear. The female is Sammy and she's 3 months. Any advice on how to keep these two away from each other when Sammy goes into heat? I realize I'm still a couple away from that stage but I wanted to be prepared.
