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

Burch, so sorry for you and Donna. Murphy is now breathing easily and running free with all our loved ones at the rainbow bridge.

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

Burch, Prednisolone is a steroid, similar to what is in the Temaril-P. Long term dosing can present problems and is a consideration but when life threatening situations exist, that's not really an issue. Enalapril is an ACE inhibitor and is primarily used for heart issues in dogs. I just read an article about a study being done at Tufts. Terriers Test a Therapy for Lung Disease I'm not saying this is what is going on with Murphy, but when heart disease has been ruled out, primary lung issues are RARE in dogs and thus are pretty difficult to diagnose. We generally start looking at rare type of issues. Doug

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

We will be thinking of you both too. Always a difficult decision, I hope there is something that can be done to help Murphy.

RE: Dr Doug cbd oil verus pain meds

It can and does work, but we don't really know effective doses and doses that create side effects. This would be my concern. I tried it for hip pain. But I started with 80mg, then 250 then 750 (if I recall correctly). I have no idea how you'd assess dosage for an animal other than using some rough correlation on body weight. Many many people up here swear by it as a Miracle Drug. I have no opinion one way or the other. This is why the studies going on now are important. These studies evaluate different doses their effectiveness, side effects and other effects that may not be grossly apparent on various body systems and organs.

RE: Animals in commercials

I hope that advancements will be made and the cost will come down...Without people trying there would be no advancements in medicine. Another thing to consider is that treatments on our animals are often an early step in formulating treatments for people. The costs are the same for the drugs whether given to animals or people, so if the same drug is used the cost is the same. I liked the Weather Tech commercial too. There are some amazing studies going on at several veterinary schools, often partially funded by private companies. Morris Animal Foundation (Founder of Hill's ) is currently funding a Golden Retriever lifetime study.

Animals in commercials

I missed seeing any Clydesdale commercials in the Super Bowl this year, but there are some amazing commercials using animals now. Subaru has many with dogs driving their cars, Kia or Hyundai are using dogs as well. I laugh out loud with the new Geico Raccoon commercial Food Truck "Chez Dumpster." I particularly love the one where one raccoon describes a delicacy and the other says "my mouth is watering" and the first one says "it's just you rabies acting up." What's your favorite?

We're still in Gulf Shores, but leaving for the next stage of our adventure. The weather has been mostly warmer than normal according to the local weather people. Prayers for Robin's husband from us too.

RE: Sasha surgery today (final update)

Two weeks for a spay is SUPER conservative, the most critical period is the first 4-5 days. After that mild exercise is usually OK (no body slams though). I feel your pain :B Mark, I've never had an OCD patient that opted for surgery. Keep us updated on progress, and I know it's going to be a long 3 months. Maybe do mind games that require no physical exercise but will fatigue her?

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

So glad you got to the hospital and got help in time!! Take the time to let your body heal and adjust.

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

As Walter's picture depicts, we've had beautiful days mostly in the 60s with cool nights and NO freezing temps. The dogs have enjoyed the walks and new smells. Mrtyn, we're just down the beach from you!

Happy New Year to all. Ditto Dan's wishes for safe travel, health and prosperity.

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

I watched the game until half time. The real turning point was a "targeting" call on an OSU defensive back followed by a couple of other penalties. That got Clemson going. OSU took the lead with a few minutes left in the game, but Clemson drove the field at the end to make the winning score. Good game.

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

Pandion Ridge in Orange Beach is a newer RV resort very close to the Wharf. Bella Terra RV resort in Foley has pretty good reviews. Do a google search for the area and you'll find over a dozen very nice, highly rated parks and many more a little lower on the scale.

RE: FDA announces Dog Foods that can cause heart failure UPDATE

UPDATE: A recent continuing meeting with Dr. Green from Purdue Vet school relayed some current thinking on this issue. Certain breeds are over-represented, Golden Retrievers are most represented. Grain free foods are implicated, some brands more than others (sorry I don't have the list). Taurine supplementation can stop many but not all cases, so they suspect that there is something more than just taurine deficiency going on. THE MOST IMPORTANT FACT: Damage done is NOT reversible when diagnosis is made and treatment is started (taurine and heart medications). Progression of the cardiomyopathy is usually stopped but not reversed. I think the message is clear. DO NOT FEED GRAIN FREE FOOD TO GOLDENS. In other breeds, it's a poor choice. Doug, DVM

Post your Christmas Photos

We had one of our nieces and grand-neices over for Pre-Christmas dinner. Obviously the dogs were super excited. https://i.imgur.com/yQXsaE9l.jpg width=720

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

Sad decision Richard, but I think that's something we all will face sooner or later. Burch, there are tons of places. We stay at Gulf State Park for a month every winter. Full hookups and they have sites on water and the park is just across the road from the gulf. We love this park and would highly recommend it. There are many nice private campgrounds around Gulf Shores, Foley and Orange Beach.
