There is a puppy weight thread around here somewhere, but I think they are too young for you to compare Helios with? That skinny look, also in the head, is pretty common with tick disease frown

What vaccination(s) was given? Be on the alert for a flair up of his disease. Hopefully you won't see it, but it's pretty common for vaccines to trigger relapse.

Hey Lisa! It's been a while since I've checked germanshepherds.com's forum; today I did and while I was doing it I remembered the thread I made about Jessie (my yorkshire, it's been almost 3 years since his lost gsdhalo ) and Helio's thread about his Ehrlichiosis on both forums eek I want to thank you again for your support during that time hugging eek

And, I too, wanted to say that Helios is doing fine, he's 3 YO and weighing 35kg. Here are some pics of him that I wanted to share with you:































































After bath eek





































































Mountain! laugh


















































































And this is Otto, I don't know if you remember him, he was brought home after Jessie's lost. I posted pics of him by that time in here and he was just 2mo, he is now 2 YO.

(P.s. One thing that has changed here is that my keyboard often doesn't write the "s", so reading where my s's are supposed to go can be a challenge wink )

Thanks Lisa! He def has a good sense of humor eek We took them to the vet today, tomorrow we are getting the results.

OT: ŅDo you have any experience about using acupuncture on dogs? especially anxious dogs that are easily excited or reactive.

It's about Helios, I'm planning on opening a new thread about this to read people's experience.

Helios Jabbers, YAMMERS when he wants or is not allowed to do something; when he sees something that he wants or likes; he has improved a lot with the training but he's still pushy...he has been like that since a puppy. He gets distracted so easily sometimes.

New situations will also trigger that behavior. If he sees dogs playing while on leash I will tell him to sit and he will do so and thats when the yammering starts...... he was a nervous pup and I believe it has something to do with it. My vets practice acupuncture on dogs and people. They've known Helios since he was little and they were telling me that it could really help him get some emotional balance ....that's mainly his problem; for example: the doorbells rings, he starts to bark and thats when I tell him to sit and he obeys and BOOM! The yammering/screaming starts, instead of barking he SCREAMS...Sometimes I feel like people will think that I'm "abusing" him rofl

They also said that we could try on him bach flowers remedies...I'm planning on researching first before making a decision help
