Veterinarians Report Mysterious Link between BlueBuffalo and Hypercalcemia
----->  http://news.vin.com/VINNews.aspx?articleId=16468
Possible health risk associated with feeding BlueBuffalo Wilderness.  Read the entire article - it contains some very important information - there have been several reports of dogs exhibiting high levels of Calcium and Vitamin D that were fed Blue Buffalo Wilderness - Now the food has been tested and its all within normal levels, so the conclusion is that "certain" dogs may have an adverse reaction to the wilderness formula, that not all dogs obviously will process or break down and utilize the food the same way.

However - I think it important to be aware of the symptoms - because the affected dogs all improved when they switched foods.

One other important, very important thing I took away from this article is the following:

"Vitamin D toxicity, or hypervitaminosis D, induces bone loss and abnormally high serum calcium levels, which could result in kidney stones and the calcification of organs like the heart and kidneys if left untreated.

just one more thing to be educated about when we have a breed that is predisposed to heart disease in the first place.  I am sharing this not as an indictment on BlueBuffalo, but so we can all be aware of the symptoms and help the vets with a diagnosis

DO NOT OVER VACCINATE YOUR DOBERMAN

It is very import to me that those that buy my pups be informed pet owners. Do not allow your vet to dictate and not discuss the pros and cons regarding your dogs health. It has long been proven that dogs do not need annual vaccines, and there is NO law in any state that mandates you do so. The only vaccine mandated by law is the rabies vaccine, and in most states, thanks to the Rabies Challenge Fund, this is now only a 3-year protocol.  Please read the links below and educate your self with regard to vaccinations and their effects on your dog.
