Bosco Care Instructions

Allergies, Emergency Numbers, etc.

This shouldn't seem like a huge list. Most of it is just for fun, and emergencies. Bosco is a very easy-going dog. And listens to commands from nearly all people he knows . He has been house-sat in 30+ different places, with many different people, for up to two weeks.


2 Cups / day (1 cup morning + 1 cup Evening)

If you forget to leave him water, he will gladly drink from the toilet

He is allergic to certain foods. It won't hurt him, just makes him itchy. They are all detailed Here

Sometime the itching never fully stops, I just try to control it.

Random Stuff:

Bosco's Leg:

His left-rear stifle (leg) joint/tenant (patella) come out of alignment in January 2013.

It hasn't happened since February 2013, but in the VERY unlucky event it happens again, he will lie down at an odd time.

If this happens, he may expect you to know how to pop it back.

Simply straighten he legs, and gently slide the tendon back into position.

It should be VERY easy, and require VERY little very gentle effort.

The quicker you can do this, the shorter his recovery time.

If in doubt, don't worry about it.
