RE: New warning for pet owners!

Awhile back, I had one of our dogs' teeth cleaned and the vet sent me home with a bottle of canine "dental rinse" supposed to help keep teeth free of tartar. When I tried it, the dogs spat it out and let me know there was no way they were going to allow it. I tried a bit on my tongue and to my amazement, it burned! I read the bottle (which I had been charged extra for, although it was never asked for or mentioned) and it contained Zylitol. I poured it down the drain. This was not our regular vet and I never called them on it. Probably should have, but didn't. I just made a note to read labels thoroughly on pet supplies. I knew I had read not to let dogs have any sugarless candy because it often contains Zylitol.

RE: Just ordered a Thundershirt

My high-strung Rosie, chi mix, has gone to Rainbow Bridge where there are no fireworks or thunder, thankfully. She was about inconsolable on those occasions. I found a baby jacket that fit her snugly and zipped up the front. That became her cue that she was "protected". It seems that anything that fits them well enough to feel secure helps. In our high fire danger, drought conditions, fireworks are terrifying to anyone with good sense.

RE: Cleaning a Thundershirt

I have gotten dog hair out of velcro with a fine tooth comb, then any residual fuzz off with the sticky side of duct tape. It's pretty hard to get it all out, but you can remove enough to make the velcro functional again.

RE: Disaster Strikes

Forgive if this is redundant, as I haven't read the entire thread. Some years ago, another member on this forum had a dog that hung herself by her collar on a gear shift knob. After I read that, we never left dogs loose in the RV, or if we did, removed their collars. So hard to think of everything...

RE: HIT IT AGAIN, DEAN! Warning Pitcher Heavy!

Wow, those bring back a lot of memories. And wasn't Calvin considered "difficult to place?" He just had to wait until you finally got there! Harlee was a sweetheart. I know you both miss her.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

It is good to be retired. I just talked to a friend in Colorado. Apparently, it hasn't stopped raining there since I left the end of April. I feel responsible somehow... There are probably many people in California that would like you to visit for a year or two!!! Absolutely! Gary, please send directions for your rain dance! We just got notice from The Gov that we have to further cut back our water usage by 32%. Since we had already cut back every way we could think of, nobody has any idea how to do that! It's the saddest thing, to see all the beautiful plants and lawns go away.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus the Christmas Cat

So cute how the does bring their new babies by for your approval. The garden shed will be a fun project and yes, every time we have driven through Texas. I-10 looked like a huge Ford dealership. :B

RE: Charlie did me in, LOL!!

I do know somebody who had a dog with a horrible spinal injury. The vet gave them some powerful pain meds and said, "Now don't try these yourselves." Is that a common admonition these days? I was horrified, but maybe I am hopelessly out of touch with the world today.:E

RE: Charlie did me in, LOL!!

I've never gotten pets' Rx's anywhere at the vet's office. Are they matching those up with the dog's owner's records now? I don't even think my dog has a SS# yet!

RE: Great dog, but somtime....

There are dog rescues that specialize in deaf dogs. I've read that they make wonderful pets, once properly socialized and trained to hand signals. Of course, it is just as much training of the family. You should be able to find some good info online, and then decide if you are up for the challenge. If not, a home without children might be better for your dog.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus the Christmas Cat

What a gorgeous little baby! Do you think it's small enough that there could have been a twin? MDL is like clockwork, isn't she? May 31st is her day!

RE: This Kid Nevur Fails to Make Me Laugh ...

We always called that grinning. Our long departed pug did it. I liked the way it neatly separated the dummies from the real dog people. Real dog people recognized the grin and dummies thought she was vicious. That's okay! :B

RE: Question re: post-total hip replacement surgery

Thanks, all. I will pass along your suggestions. She does have a PT tech who comes to the house. This is rural and options are limited. She is pleased with the surgery, but has a long way to go and will need the other hip done later. Thanks, again.

RE: Question re: post-total hip replacement surgery

You can get the wedge from a medical supply store in your area. A common product for hip replacement. It is the number of different styles that has me puzzled, and my friend doesn't really know either. Medicare doesn't provide these items. Ratings on Amazon were mixed and often years old, so thought I'd see if anyone here has a preference. Thanks!

Question re: post-total hip replacement surgery

I'm trying to help a friend who lives in another state and can't get out to shop. She's had total hip replacement on one side, (much younger than usual, for birth defect) and was suggested by a nurse to get a "leg wedge pillow" I have about gone cross-eyed researching it on Amazon. There are so many different types. My friend would love to sleep on her healthy side at night and needs support for her surgery side. I thought maybe someone here would know what the best options are. Nothing is like "been-there-done-that" experience. I will be happy to order whatever might help her. She's been through so much already. Thanks in advance. Judy

RE: Bad Weekend Camping.

Oh, poor dog! Our cat did that once with Benadryl. When she tasted it, her face looked like an overflowing bubble bath! I've taken Tramadol for years and never detected any terrible taste, but then again, I've never chewed them. If there is something she ordinarily gulps down, like possibly a chunk of hot dog? Maybe you could get away with poking it in the middle and she'd swallow it before she tasted it? But you'd have to take care not to have residue on your hands. Hope she is feeling better.

RE: Calvin's PSA; Summers just around the corner, ...

And I run in such an elderly crowd, I thought "Calvin had a prostate check?" :B

RE: YES, everybody was right!!

How wonderful! And a great name you chose for her! I so miss MY Rosie. We always hear that large, black dogs are the hardest to find homes for. This is a lucky girl, and so are you. I hope you are feeling much better these days, Barb.

RE: Purina v Blue Buffalo update

A few years ago, I fell for the Blue Buffalo commercials the way we fall for those Disney movies that star a dog. BB knows how to manipulate pet owners' emotions, and who doesn't want the best for their kids? All three vets we've seen in the intervening years have had the same low opinion of BB that Dr Doug has. Our current vet is not even guarded with her contempt for the company's product and their marketing. Even the suggested servings of BB put weight on our small dogs and little guys really can't afford any extra pounds. The only dog we have now, Darcy, is on Royal Canin weight control and holding. so far, so good.
