|drew123||My puppy had a very small bladder and had to go out sometimes 3 times a night. The problem was it was hard to keep her in a crate cause she never gave any signs of needing to go. I discovered that (for me at least) it was easier to let her sleep next to me, and whenever she woke up and atarted stirring around, that meant she needed to go out. I even let her in the bed with me every so often, because when she wokeup it also woke me up. She's over a year old now and only really needs to potty 2-3 times a day but it was a headache. Especially having to stand out in the snow at 4 a.m. but looking back those were the good times. That being said, crate training is still a necessity for your dog, I just went about it all a different way.|

1. Neo finally got over his fear of stairs yesterday and took the first 3 steps down and then up again
2. Also last night was Neo's first time he sleeps all through the night. He had dinner at 7 and removed water then. Went out for the last time at 9h30 pm then crated at around 10. I was planning on letting him out at around 2 am but he didn't wake up till 6 this morning

Thank you Ellimaybel I will give it a try this afternoon and keep you posted...
On the other hand Neo showed for the first time possession behavior today towards my 9 years old son.
He was planing with his kong and my son tried to take it from him to make him play, Neo growled for a few seconds then barked at him.
Should I be worried about that or just ignore it ?

|Ellimaybel||When Gunther went through the phase of not wanting his dry food I ran the chicken and rice through the food processor and then added that to the dry food with some water. It wasn't parvo but it still did the job I needed done.|

Well the vet advised me to get him on brown rice and chicken breast and I am.
He is eating quite well with lot of appetite, my problem now is that he is refusing to eat dry food anymore...
I tried to mix as little as 25% of dry food with the chicken and rice and he left them untouched...
P. S. Thanks everyone for the welcome home wishes

Hi, perhaps start a thread in the health section on this. It will catch the attention of more people who have been through this and can give advice.
Sometimes vets will prescribe a diet also.
I'm glad he is home!!

Neo is finally home and although he lost some weight he looks fine.
He is refusing to eat Kibbles but looks like capable eating a lot of boiled chicken breast.
How much should I feed him now? As much as he want or what?

Hmmm, since it is sand how about removing the top few inches of sand. Treat the bottom layer thoroughly with a bleach water solution. Then for good measure fresh newly purchased bagged sand (if that is available to you?) added to the top.
I don't know how doable that is for depending on the size of the area you are dealing with.
Another idea would be to follow the above suggestion, except make a small safely sanitized potty area. Put a fence around this potty area carry him to it. Place him there to do his business and when done pick him up carry him back. I don't know how long he will be shedding virus upon his return home so check with the vet on that.
Potty pads on a hard surface that can be sanitized with bleach may be the safest way to go until your vet feels he is safe from reinfection.
Hope this helps and maybe some others will chime in with more tips.
