Calming Canine Music

ThroughADogsEarThunderThe creators of the Through A Dog’s Ear series have collaborated with Victoria Stilwell, star of Animal Planet’s It’s Me or the Dog, and developed the new Canine Noise Phobia Series


Does your dog suffer from a fear of thunderstorms? Does his anxiety level increase when the storm clouds roll in? Thunderstorm phobia is a very common condition among dogs all over the world. The terror that results can be an incredibly distressing, debilitating problem not only for dogs, but also for their owners who feel powerless to help. This groundbreaking desensitization tool will teach your dog to associate positive feelings with thunderstorms rather than feeling fearful, and will help to gradually reduce your dog’s fear when exposed to these sounds. When used properly and implemented in conjunction with the behavioral modification protocols included in the CD liner notes, you have an excellent chance of rehabilitating your thunder-phobic dog and preventing thunder-phobia from ever developing in younger dogs.

Flip in WI, Overcoming the Odds

Flip LOVES life and everyone who meets him — well, they flip over him! He's funny, cute and very spunky. 

Flip was left at an animal shelter by a commercial breeder because he had a "back leg deformity". It turns out he has severe bilateral hip dysplasia and his left leg has a significant luxating patella that won't stay in place when his leg is extended, but is slightly better when it's flexed.

Flip walking with a sling

His right patella is fully luxated and his leg is twisted and very undeveloped. He trips over his right leg and the weight of it throws him off balance. Worse, the vets have said he will develop severe arthritis. The right leg can't be repaired, and it should be amputated before it becomes painful.

Flip's left leg has an excellent prognosis. He needs a femoral head osteotomy, Flip Cone of Shamemeaning the head of his femur will be removed and the scar tissue will form a false joint. He also needs a soft tissue repair of his left knee. The orthopedic specialist said he expects Flip to have a "good, normal left leg" after he recovers.

In the meantime, Flip and his foster mom are strengthening him in preparation for surgery. Yes, the surgery is expensive, but Flip shows incredible spirit and he has many years of a happy life ahead of him.

UPDATE! 11/3/14

Flip 6 months oldWe're happy to give a pupdate on Flip, who is now an amazingly fast three legged dog. Flip had his right leg amputated in July. It was a rough going at first, but Flip was moving on his own less than a week later.
 
Flip gets around remarkably well. This summer he went with his foster-to-adopt family to a picnic at a small lake. Flip walked into the water after the grandchildren and began swimming on his own! All those PT sessions in the bathtub paid off. Flip takes a 20 minute walk daily. His strength and endurance have certainly improved.
 
Flip needs one more surgery to stabilize his patella. His body condition is much better now than when he first went in for surgery this summer. We look forward to watching Flip thrive thanks to the generous support of so many people.
 
Here's a video of Flip when he visited his first foster home for a long weekend in October. Sometimes it's hard to spot the 3-legged dog in play.
