RE: Cost of Jesse's tooth removal

Good doggie daddy. Good doggie Mama! :B Aren't you thankful that you can afford to take care of Jesse? Absolutely!

Cost of Jesse's tooth removal

Jesse had his cracked tooth removed on Monday. They originally thought there were two cracked teeth but fortunately there was only one. Total cost was just shy of $1400. However, that included the initial visit, pre-surgery lab work, x-rays, tooth extraction, dental cleaning, all antibiotics, pain killers, and anti-inflammatory meds, extra anesthesia (tooth was difficult to remove), unexpected gum removal, all the associated operating room and personnel costs plus a few extras like treats, tooth brushes, and doggie toothpaste. Lost of money for sure but well worth it.

RE: Looking for new vehicle- suggestions

A couple of years ago we bought a Toyota Venza. MIL/Step FIL have one and love it. He's 6' 2ish and used to be about 250 lbs and fit just fine. No issues at all.

RE: Hurricane Irma Aftermath

Being without electricity for a few days, a week even, is a nuisance Until 8 people die in a nursing home due to lack of a/c. And maybe you didn't read the story of the because her father needs oxygen to survive and it was vital to that survival. Still, even that is NOTHING compared to what the storm did to the islands. Barbuda has been evacuated. Nothing has been left standing. As for the other islands which got hit when the storm was at its strongest, help is not a few days drive away by truck. Help is by sea or air. Airports & seaports have been trashed. We get it-the islands got trashed. We're not stupid or callous. But what happened in Florida was not "nothing". It could be months before some areas get electricity back. Your "poor me" badgering is offensive. And many of us are well aware more storms are approaching. Other than the US Virgin Islands those islands are the responsibility of other countries. We have our hands full between Harvey and Irma with Jose possibly hitting the east coast. Am I sympathetic to those in poor areas that have been hit? Absolutely. But I will insist again that charity begins at home and the US only has so many resources. Am I concerned that Maria will hit the same countries? Of course. But I'm more concerned of what may happen here and what has happened here. Can I spare a few thoughts? Absolutely. Can I stop it? No. Get a grip-Florida was not spared.

RE: Looking for new vehicle- suggestions

Love my MINI Countryman for all the reasons you mention but it may be too small from you. A former co-worker had a Cooper (wouldn't recommend that) and he was bigger than you and actually fit in fine. A current co-worker drives a Toyota Fit and he is larger than you. You might have to look at luxury lines such as Audi, BMW, Lexus or Infinity. Loved my Subaru Outback (had to give it up do to bad hip and clutching was a probem) and if they've made them larger it would be one of my first recommendations.

RE: Non Interstate Route from Concord NH to Bar Harbor?

Now DW says she's in a hurry and wants to take the turnpikes, which I've done before. To try to save my rapidly fading thoughts of leisurely trip are gone! So, is Rt 3 out of Augusta to the coast and from there Rt 1 a good idea, instead of staying on the Maine Pike to Bangor and then to Ellsworth? If the goal is to get there quickly go to Bangor and down. The trip along the coast can be very slow if traffic is heavy.

RE: Doggie Dentistry-Fillings, Crowns, etc.

We've been on the road today, so sorry for the delay in answering. No worries! If it was a canine I think I would sell the house to save a canine. Not a canine thankfully. They are both back teeth but not molars. It's not about the money-it's more about results. I spent thousands on our bloodhound but ultimately saved his life. I also can't see putting a dog through a procedure that ultimately may need to be repeated or if it's failure can cause further harm. Thanks all. Much appreciated.

RE: Urinalysis Questions-Jesse's Results

Sorry Dr. Doug, I didn't get enough details apparently. Albumin was in the urine, cells were red blood, sample was voided. The new kidney test was something like MSRN, I think. She's not worried unless we get repeated results. Guess I'll try not to!

Urinalysis Questions-Jesse's Results

Jesse's urinalysis came back with some results that were "off". His albumin was 2.6 (norm is 2.7), had a little protein and had a few blood cells in his urine (minimal) but another new kidney test showed he was fine-I think she said 7 on a scale of 15. The vet isn't worried and we are going to repeat in 1 month. Just wondering if I should be more concerned than she is!

RE: Doggie Dentistry-Fillings, Crowns, etc.

My answer was go for a consult at the veterinarian dentist and ask that question. Ummm. Sure. And what do you think he's going to say? Of course he's going to say it's worth it! It's like asking answering a woman if she asks if she looks fat in this dress! I'm looking for someone who may have experience. Further reading indicated that most places do it for "specialty" dogs like those who are trained for law enforcement, etc., but not generally for pets.

RE: Doggie Dentistry-Fillings, Crowns, etc.

My question is can dog's teeth be repaired in the same way as human's and is worth the expense? This is my real question-can they truly be repaired in the same way as a human's?

Doggie Dentistry-Fillings, Crowns, etc.

Jesse has two cracked teeth-one is pretty bad, the other more minor. Both are being removed on Monday and he's also having a cleaning done since he'll be under anesthesia anyway. My question: This is being done at our regular vet's office. Expensive, but what can you do? Which leads me to my next question. There's a "doggie dentist" not far from here. His website claims he does crowns, fillings, can fix cracked teeth, etc. My regular vet mentioned him but warned he's outrageously expensive. My question is can dog's teeth be repaired in the same way as human's and is worth the expense? Dr. Doug, your thoughts or anyone else who has experience with this?

RE: Hotel, motel, people and dogs

hotels and motels do allow dogs and whatever with their fleas and poop and their urine in their rooms LOL! I don't think hotels/motels "allow" this-sometimes stuff just happens. Don't even want to get into the places where people change diapers...

Oy, one of those days!

Not a good day today. Work stuff is starting all over again. One of the dogs has two cracked teeth and between today's visit and the surgery he'll have Monday it will cost about $2K. And just to add a little more fun to the day, for reasons unbeknownst to me, I decided to back into a very nice Audi Q5 with my MINI when leaving the vet and damaged both cars. The woman was really nice about it but I just feel like an idiot. On the up side I'm happy to have a job even though I hate it, we can afford the $2K for the dog, I have good car insurance and I don't live in Florida or the Caribbean. Tomorrow will be better. Maybe.

RE: Hotel, motel, people and dogs

I disagree that it's always back to the parents. I've known parents who were the best and the kid is selfish, inconsiderate, etc. I've known the worst of parents who turned out great kids. X2. Quite often it is but if it's always the parents then explain how 3 kids in one family, all parented the same, can turn out so different? because the kids connect to the world differently. Can't stress how so true this one comment is. I teach kids how to shoot. We have basic rules that everyone has to follow. All learn different, all behave differently. The world in general would be a much better place if we didn't "cookie cutter" our approach to life in general. Back to the OP: Glad you are OK and weathered the storm. Also agree with the sign-sometimes the adults are the issue!

Just Bought a Great National Parks Book

We were in Barnes and Noble the other night and I picked up a great book on the National Parks-Your Guide to the National Parks by Michael Joseph Oswald and printed by Stone Road Press. I am really impressed with all the information it has-what each park has to offer, where it is, maps, lodging, camping-all the necessary info. It is a great resource when trying to figure out if somewhere is worth visiting plus it's just enjoyable to read.

RE: Hurricane Irma Aftermath

Florida dodged the bullet & got off light. I beg to differ and find this comment a bit offensive. While it wasn't as bad as it could have been I wouldn't call the damage in the Keys "light", nor all the people that will lose everything due to flooding. And that includes people in GA and SC. I don't think anyone has forgotten the Caribbean but charity begins at home. The president of Mexico had pledged aid for Texas after Harvey and had to renege after Katia and the earthquake occurred as he has to put his own country first-I don't begrudge him that. As far as people just going to the National Hurricane website-not everyone can interpret data. I think lives were saved by coverage and if drama is required to bolster commonsense and humility, so be it. X2. The only downside is if they over-dramatize it's possible people will ignore the warnings the next time around. The weather people did the best they could with the information they had. What some people fail to realize is that hurricanes are like two-year-olds-fickle, cranky and very unpredictable. For anyone to criticize forecasters for not being 100% accurate is arrogance at it's best. We should all the thankful it didn't turn out as bad as it could have been but also bear in mind many, many people have lost all they had. We have a nephew that lives in Bradenton that had the common sense to bail last week and arrive in MA on Thursday. He'd rather scrap vacation time to ensure his family's safety then risk it. What he's going back to, no one knows. Even if damage is "light" by comparison it won't reduce the loss if he goes home and finds his home destroyed.

RE: US1 Florida Keys Status

Best of luck. I hope all is well but you may be right-things don't look good their at all.
