RE: Kitty with motion sickness

There are medications that can help. My favorite is Cerenia and is available by prescription, talk to your vet. There are some OTC remedies that help less frequently, but still can work. Pheromone or olfactory therapy can also help (lavender, Feliway). Doug, DVM

Beautiful!! Congratulations.

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

So sorry Burch. Acute issues like this are often related to the heart. One of the more common tumors in dogs is hemangiosarcoma. They can easily go undiagnosed and one major place they metastasize is to the right atrium in the heart. If that tumor ruptures, they can go into heart failure or acute death with a big bleed. This actually happened to one of our goldens and I never had a clue that she had the tumors until she died. This would be the first place I'd look. Again, so sorry for your loss. Doug

RE: Chicago tolls

My last toll at that plaza (I80-294) was $3.00 - motorhome towing.

USDA Announcement

WASHINGTON, Nov. 1, 2022 -- The United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is making $30 million in American Rescue Plan Act funding available to address SARS-CoV-2 in animals and advance the Nation’s ability to protect the health of humans and animals. This funding opportunity is part of APHIS’ multipronged approach under its American Rescue Plan Strategic Framework, to build an early warning system to potentially prevent or limit the next zoonotic disease outbreak or global pandemic. There was a fantastic segment on 60 minutes yesterday about surveillance that is being done in Africa. The program is combined program with UC Davis and doctors from Africa. They are collecting samples from bats, primates and people looking for the next potential viral pathogen. Searching for the next pandemic

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

After your post I looked up and my next license renewal REQUIRES and in person renewal due to age. I guess that's better than an auto shut down date. I hope they find a method to eliminate the nausea/vomiting with the radiation treatments. We'll be thinking about you both.

RE: COVID PERSONAL EXPERIENCES

Johns Hopkins still has their dashboard with county statistics. It has become more difficult to find current local transmission rates as many states no longer publish the information. There are areas where transmission rates warrant the extra precautions when in crowded, indoor, poorly ventilated areas. Another issue is that there are new variants of the omicron variant that are starting to show up. CDC has vaccination recommendations. The multi-valent vaccine is supposed to offer better protection against these variants. My personal experience was infection a little over 1 year ago (probably Delta variant) about 7 months after my 2nd Pfizer shot and broke with symptoms the same day I got the booster. I had 3-4 days of fever, aches and cough for a couple of weeks. I got my multi-variant vaccination last month and had a sore arm for a day.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

That just sucks. It's wrong on so many levels. Getting compensation from recommended treatments is a slippery arrangement. It's like a DJ getting a kick back for playing a record. As far as camping out at medical, our son had a triple bypass today. We took the motorhome and spent much of the 6 hours waiting there rather than in a crowded surgical waiting room. Everything went well and he's in ICU for the next day or two. It was so much more comfortable waiting in the motorhome.

RE: RVing with IBD?

One of the reasons we chose a motorhome vs trailer. Travel is pretty easy.

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

Glad you are OK and have minimal damage. My parents had a trailer and site in Ft. Myers Beach in an RV park that was adjacent to the causeway to Sanibel. They sold it after my dad passed in 1985. Pictures of that causeway make me think that the whole park would have been under water and destroyed by wind and storm surge.

RE: 2019–2022 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

Actually, they have been testing sewer contents for coronavirus since early 2020 and other pathogens much longer. It's a valid technique for monitoring potential public health issues. Not perfectly predictive, more like weather radar.

RE: We're getting ready........for lambing

Your posts are always an education for those of us not familiar with real farming. Hard work, uncertain compensation and uncertain/unknown obstacles during the year.

RE: Been a long time

Dan, so good to hear from you again and so sorry for your issues medical and personal. I hope the dogs continue to give you comfort and support. We'll be thinking of you. Doug

RE: Changing oil.

The oil change I usually do myself. We've not had to have service too many times, but mobile repair guys we've had to use have been both cost effective and competent.

RE: Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection

DW has had the injections and radio ablation that toedtoes described in lumbar area. She had weeks of relief from the injections and months from the ablation. Right now, she's considering a procedure where spacers are glued into affected disc spaces (my interpretation of the procedure). This is minimally invasive and offers immediate relief with little recovery from the procedure and a more permanent solution. Her physician is an anesthesiologist that specializes as a pain doc and done many of these procedures with good record of positive results.

RE: Early Television

Like most of you, I grew up with a huge box tv, black & white with a screen about a foot across. We used to go to my uncle's house for New Year's Day and he had 4 TVs stacked on one wall and one was even color!! He had a Zenith that had an early remote that clicked a sound that caused the channel change. Really cool that we could watch multiple football games at the same time. My uncle was an eccentric character.

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

SGTJOE, in my experience Standard poodles are usually pretty chill compared to the other sizes. Labs can be. The fear of men doesn't necessarily mean that there was mistreatment, but his history certainly is suspect. Sounds like you have a good match, and your patience has given him an opportunity to develop.

RE: SARS-CoV-2 Infections in US Dogs and Cats

We're not currently vaccinating or recommending COVID vaccinations for dogs or cats. The disease has not shown to be serious in dogs and most cats. There is an animal version of the vaccine that has been used mostly in primates and big cats in zoos. The recommendations now are to limit contact with your dogs and cats if you test positive.
