I have a lab that is less than a year old, he has a growth on the end of his nose.Blood work was done, chem 25,CBC, T4, all were NEGATIVE. The next step is to biopsy the nose. Before I proceed with this I am looking for some insight in what this could be. Putting him asleep to do the biopsy is an evasive procedure

I am looking at a very nice Labrador to pull from a shelter for our rescue group but this yellow male has 1/2 of one eye has a lack of pigment! Does this mean he isn't a purebred? He has all of the lab characteristics yellow, ears,
body
And ottos tail, webbed feet about 22 inches tall. Very nice temperament. Any help is appreciated

I have an 11 1/2 yr old lab with aging hips. Vet recommended Rimadyl, however, I was told that is life threatening for Labs. Any advice?

Hello, we have been asked if we want to take on a rescue lab. He is about 3-4 years old, not neutred, and been confined to a garage for two years. The rescuers say he is a great dog but when he goes outside he just stands there, not sure what to do. We have two kids, a hugh fence in back yard with swimming pool, love to fish and like labs. We do not have another dog.

I have a 2 year old black lab named maddie and I LOVE her but she LOVES to eat socks and garbage

and I am soooo worried she'll get bloat one of these days and I have no clue how to stop it...but for now she just gets diarrhea so we give her plain YOGURT and that helps a lot I've also heard that canned pumpkin helps too

We have a black black lab who has had the tendency to have diarrhea off and on since we got her, It really hard and expensive to treat and deal with. She is a happy dog that is unable to tolerate food at times.

Is so sad to think that a dog that you love so much, could have an accident or could get hit by a car.

Early this morning, my 3 year lab escaped from home yard because my neighboor opened the gate. She ended up crossing a 3 lanes two ways road and started zig zagging. She almost got hit by a car.

I was crying and I just can't forgive myself for allowing my lab to be unsupervised even for a short time. It was matter of minutes. My day has been awful because of that.

Just imagining that I could lost her today make me deeply
sad.
I wish she can respect me when I call her, but it seems she always take it as a game. She comes to me just when she wants to.

I wonder what I'm doing wrong. Specially, because she respect me when I give her other commands.

I have 2 black labs -both female ages 5 and 2. My 5 year old has been cleaning up after my 2 year old going to the bathroom. I've tried pills, pinepple and trying to get to the dog first. What can I give her or is she lacking something in her diet. Please let me know!

I have a Black Lab named Jack. We found him at the side of the road one day and ever since then he has been my dog. But Jack is very testy, smart, and energetic. He has learned how to open his pen door, jump over his pen gate, slip his collors off, and even open my house door. He is even figuring out how to lock my door too. When i have people over he barks and jumps like CRAZY! We tried to have a bark collor but he sliped it off and i think buried it. He even ate half of my garden one year. And he NEVER stays clean. Twice he has got in a skunk, 3 times he ate my shoes, and 8 times he decided to take mud baths!! I also tried almost everything!!! Any more tips????

I'm about to adopt a 4-5 mo. Choc. Lab from our local humane society. How much food does he need on a daily basis? Considering the possible weight gain problem later in life, what are the life long food requirements? What type of food, regular, speciality, organic, etc...? Any help would be appreciated.

i have a 6 year old black lab female and she is just CRAZY with enthusiasm. When i wake up or someone comes to visit she is all over them, jumping, pawing. I thought this behavior would go away after she matured. She is overly loving. I have tried all kinds of behavior modifications to try to calm her down. Any suggestions - my grandson calls her crazy girl, barbara

I love this site. I find it very helpful. I have recently rescued a 6 month old black lab from the SPCA. I adore him. I needed some direction in how to train him. He is very smart. I am having an issue with him going to the bathroom in my home. I can take him out for long walks, put him in the yard and he will come into the house and go to the bathroom (pooping). Can you help??

I have a black lab mix and he sheds like crazy!!!! But we just brush him and pluck his hair out when we are outside. That's all you need to do. As long as they're happy.
