  1. Introduce Yourself
    I have just joined this wonderful forum and have had a Havanese for seven years. We have had some hereditary health problems but still love our sweet boy. I would be happy to answer any questions anyone has about the health issues we have encountered through the years. Please don't hesitate to...
  2. Health Issues and Questions
    Hi all, Just figured I would share something I learned lately. I noticed that Archer had been licking his paws more and more, and that the fur between his toes was turning red. His feet also also had that "corn chip" smell, and his skin looked a bit red. It almost looked like it was itching or...
  3. General Discussion
    I am relieved to report that Archer's 3rd set of shots and vet visit went super today. After the first one which was horrible, (see the thread 'Adventures of Archer") I prepared him by training him up on tables, lifting gums, poking, looking in ears, etc. And I found a new vet. And she is...
  4. Health Issues and Questions
    I have an eight-year-old Havanese and her great granddaughter who will be two in Match. Yesterday, the older one (Pucci) threw up and seemed a little lethargic. I gave her a little rice and boiled chicken for dinner and she kept it down and wanted more. Today she seemed okay. But Ruby threw up...
  5. BREEDERS
    I have been searching on line for months now to find a quality breeder whose dogs have other colors rather than the whites and blacks. I love the grays, reds, beiges, mixtures, etc. One I am very interested in is TLC Havanese in Iowa. I checked her site and spoke on the phone with her and she...
  6. Puppy Area
    Hi, I've been reading this forum for a while but this is my first post. We have a 15 week old puppy named Bailey. She's very cute, smart and we love her to bits, but I'm getting a bit worried about all the health issues she's had already. She has a hernia, an overbite, blocked tear ducts, and...
  7. General Discussion
    Hey All, I'm curious to know about health guarantees in contracts. If you're a breeder, what do you guarantee? Or, if you purchased a puppy, what was included in your contract? Just trying to get a feel for what you all would consider "the norm." Thanks!
  8. Ask A Breeder
    My family is looking to adopt our first Havanese, and I'm new to this forum. I'm having trouble digesting all the information re: advice on what to look for in a breeder, health checks, etc. Could someone please boil all this down? Here's some questions I have: -- Does a breeder have to be...
  9. Puppy Area
    Hi all! After having lost our adorable Yorkie 5 months ago my family has decided to bring a new pup into our home and after ALOT of research we found a breeder and have made our deposit to receive one of three female puppies born on December 16th. The breeder is very reputable and was...
  10. Health Issues and Questions
    This is going to be a long story. Please take time to read it. Anyone looking for a havanese might benefit from it. So I bought a havanese female last week and she was shipped to me this past Thursday. I was lead to believe by the person that I was buying her from that she looked great (she...

    If you are using an estrogen creme (or any other hormone creme) be VERY careful around pets and children. Here is the link to a story in the New York Times today. http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/10/25/when-hormone-creams-expose-others-to-risks/?ref=science
  12. Health Issues and Questions
    I took Phoebe and her eight puppies for their BAER test. They all passed which was not a surprise. I submitted Phoebe's results and got her OFA certificate. My question is do I have to apply for her CHIC or does it happen automatically? This was the only exam Phoebe needed for her CHIC.
  13. Health Issues and Questions
    Hi there my friends. I have a quick question on whether to insure my Havanese puppy or not. I've been researching the different insurance plans/companies and am more confused now than before. So, I thought I would pose this question out to you: 1) to insure a puppy or not? 2) If yes, then...
  14. Puppy Area
    Hi! I am new to the forum---I have a little white boy with cream ears. He is about 5 months now and he is in his teething stage. I noticed the other day that he is missing a few of his bottom row teeth with no sign of his adult teeth? Is this normal or is he missing his adult teeth? I thought...
  15. Health Issues and Questions
    Hi everyone, I am thinking about purchasing a older puppy (just under a year). The puppy weighs about 20 pounds. The breeder told me that his bone structure is just different from his litter mates resulting in a larger dog. After looking at pics. of him with his brother I can definitely see...
