Re: New Kittens Introduction Gone Wrong

Re: Dentals & 14 Year-old Maltese (Update)

I hope everything goes smoothly and she only has the one tooth extracted. Small dogs tend to have frequent dental issues, our maltese and yorkie owners were in frequently for dentals and extractions. Your pup appears to have gone most her life with a [more]

Re: Food and your DNA

I heard Dr. Elinav interviewed on the People's Pharmacy podcast. It was very interesting. I can't say I am surprised that people/animals/living creatures respond to things differently. A continuum is the norm, isn't it? Why do we have ranges of [more]

Re: Updates on the rest of the family

Wonderful report! I'm so glad your home is filled with such interesting little furry personalities. I'm jealous, would love to have more than one cat. Our Lulu feel the necessity to pee on things if there is another animal in the house. Just cannot [more]

Re: Princess had to leave

(((((dbuffy)))))
I had been wondering about Princess. She was your rock and you paid her back in love and kindness and went so far above and beyond for her, as she did for you. She was central to your life for so long, it is not weird at all that [more]

Re: working with a personal trainer

You will be sore 24 - 48 hours after exercise, and going 3 times a week means you will be in a state of soreness every day until you get stronger, but you will get stronger, faster, 3 x week than 2 x week. The trainer will take this into account when [more]

Re: Advice - Dental for 14 Year old Dog?

What does your vet say? Have they done blood work and testing to see if she is otherwise ok for anesthesia? Ask if they would induce her lightly and use iso or one of the other super safe gases and monitor her O2 and BP like hawks. Have they done [more]

Re: Need some advice

I used to work for vets for many years and after seeing all the things we had to go surgically remove or the sickness that resulted in dogs ingesting bad things, I never felt bad at all about muzzling them. They were happy dogs and adjusted [more]

Re: Need some advice

I had dogs that would go in the back yard and eat pecans and china berries and then come back in and throw them all up. I used these basket muzzles on them (http://www.morrco.com/polmuzsiz9.html). [more]

Re: Freaking out, would kitties be better elsewhere?

If I recall correctly, the Giardia medication is very hard on you. If they still treat with Metronidazole, anyway. And of course they all have to be treated if one has tested positive (does he go outside?). They all probably need to be on a probiotic [more]

Re: Poll: Front Door material
