For Use Only on LARGE DOGS/PUPPIES 31-60 LBS & 12 Weeks of Age or Older
I like little dogs that I can pick up myself and cuddle completely in my lap. Hubby likes big dogs – his yellow lab was 85+ lbs. We settled on “medium” sized, but 60 lbs is definitely on the higher end of “medium.”
honestly feeding amount can be different from dog to dog. I am not sure how much, but to give you a good idea my parents have a 12 lbs. min pin and she eats about a 1/4 cup in the morning and 1/4 cup in the evening. My 60 lbs. dog Sirius eats 1 cup in the morning and 1 cup in the evening (When he was almost 50 lbs. we fed him the same amount), so disregarding special dietary requirements i would say a ROUGH feeding table would look like: 1/4 cup (2x daily) 10-15 lbs, 1/2 cup (2x daily) for 16 -30 lbs, 3/4 cup (2x daily) 31-49 lbs, and 1 cup (2x daily) for 50-65 lbs.

Neosporin is commonly used to treat dog wounds. This antibiotic ointment would prevent infection and provide pain relief at the same time. However, administering ointments and other topical medications would commonly necessitate Elizabethan collars to prevent the dog from licking the injury site. Aspirin and ibuprofen are proven effective in giving the dog pain relief. These anti-inflammatory medications are even prescribed by vets to reduce swelling. However, as aspirin and ibuprofen were formulated for humans there are no dosage guidelines for dogs. Thus, the administration of the medicine is commonly done on a hit and miss method. Naturally, small dosage would not yield the expected effect. A large dosage on the other hand, may not be tolerated by the dog and cause an upset stomach or worse, it can do irreparable damage to the dog’s system. Generally, a vet would recommend 5 to 10 mg of aspirin per pound of body weight. To be on the safe side, a 60 lbs dog can have a 325 mg Aspirin caplet on a 12 hour period. Aspirin and ibuprofen are both non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID). Both are useful pain medications for humans. In dogs, aspirin is commonly recommended than ibuprofen given that it is less irritating on the stomach. Dogs can develop stomach ulcers after 2 to 6 weeks of ibuprofen use. Tylenol, an effective pain relief medication for humans is lethal for dogs.

But the truth is that this dog could earn a gold medal in the art of being a couch potato. Greyhounds are quiet, gentle and very mellow. Because the greyhound weighs in at 60-70 lbs, you should probably consider a different breed if you live in a studio. Your greyhound is just as happy snuggling up with you, watching HBO as he is playing in the park. He can spend all day lounging in bed, just like you with your very worst hangover. (If you overdo it on the wine, you can both burrow under the covers together.)Trifexis is a prescription medication FDA approved for use in dogs 8 weeks of age or older and 5 lbs of body weight or more.
