RE: Puppy Teething: Dr Jekyll/Mr Hyde

IME it's not uncommon for teething to cause some diarrhea. And yeah--needing to go out every 30 minutes is very typical, especially with smaller pups. It's exactly what I strive for when working on housebreaking. Enjoy this golden period. Puppy adolescence will no doubt strike before too long! LOL

RE: Visiting Family in Memphis, need safe rv park

We spent one night at Tom Sawyer a couple of months ago, and it certainly seemed safe.

RE: Cost of dental work on a small dog?

Congrats on her coming home! I always tell adopters that the animal will start off on "I don't want them to send me back" good behavior for several weeks. As they start to realize they aren't being sent away (to another home) again, then they will start showing their true personality and will start to push the envelope a bit to see what they can get away with. Yep. The honeymoon period. Now I have had a small handful of fosters who were the same from Day 1. Their behavior never changed much at all. Those were the dogs who were naturally calm and laid back. And IME it's a bit different with a puppy mill/back yard breeder dog. Unfortunately some of those never really show a naughty side because they never get over the fear. :( Hopefully one day your little girl will be totally naughty in a funny/harmless way, and you'll know that she knows she's okay now.

RE: Can I combine Seresto with any other flea product?

Another possibility is that he's having an allergic reaction to the bites from the fleas. Flea bite allergy is extremely common, and just a bite or two can cause itching that can last for weeks. You might try giving him an antihistamine to see if it helps. You can find dosing info online for giving dogs Benadryl, Claritin, and several other OTC antihistamines. Or your vet's office would likely give you the correct dosing info over the phone.

RE: Cost of dental work on a small dog?

She's a cutie! And for a rescue she doesn't look that bad at all grooming-wise. So many of them are completely matted messes, so bad you can't even tell what breed/mix they are, and they have to be shaved down to the skin.

Congratulations! We'd love to see a picture when you get a chance.

RE: Cost of dental work on a small dog?

I agree that you should call vets in your area, since costs can vary by large amounts. I don't know how helpful this will be, since I'm in North Carolina in a medium cost of living area. But FWIW . . in September I paid $260.47 for my 15 pound Shih Tzu's teeth cleaning. That included pre-op blood work and three extractions (two retained baby teeth and one adult tooth). Here in the U.S. February is pet dental health month, and many (probably most) vets offer 10-20 percent discounts on dental cleanings. So if this little dog's teeth could wait until then (i.e., if they're not causing her pain) then you might check to see if similar discounts are offered in Canada.

RE: Dealing with pet passing while on the road

I would first ask for recommendations at a campground if possible, as others have suggested. Another resource is the American Animal Hospital Association locator tool. Not all vets are accredited by the AAHA. Given a choice I wouldn't want to use one that wasn't.

RE: Do your dogs/cats watch TV

None of our dogs have ever reacted to anything on TV other than animal sounds or a doorbell that sounded like ours. We had a cat once who would occasionally watch sporting events like tennis and hockey--something with a fast moving object. She also became fascinated by a dog show once. I'm pretty sure it was the movement of the dogs around the ring that caught her attention.

RE: The flat-Earth conspiracy is spreading around the globe

In the spirit of humor there is a logical PROOF the world is NOT FLAT. Yup. if it was cats would have pushed everything off it by now. Truth.

RE: Knee Pain

I'm also wondering if any of you has used any topical ointment that you've found effective? Voltaren (diclofenac) prescription cream helps somewhat with my fingers and wrists. But according to my rheumatologist it works best for small joints; not so well for larger ones. Any topical treatment can only penetrate so far.

RE: Knee Pain

I've heard of glucosamine/chondroitin, but have also read that it's falling out of favor among those who study these things. My brother told me that he gave glucosamine/chondroitin to his dog, who suffered a sore knee, and it appeared to work in about 3 weeks. According to my vet and to an internal medicine doctor I used to see -- All dogs have the enzyme needed to metabolize glucosamine/chondroitin. Only about 50 percent of people have that necessary enzyme. I have rheumatoid arthritis, and with my rheumatologist's blessing I tried curcumin/turmeric. He says there is some solid science that says it does help some people. He recommended 500 mg. twice a day. I took it for about seven months but couldn't tell it helped me even a tiny bit, so I stopped. I do have relatives with osteoarthritis who believe it helps them.

RE: Harvest Host

Yes, we've used HH sites a few times. We only joined a few months ago, so haven't had time yet to use them a lot. Our experiences so far have been very enjoyable--we've done a winery, a farm and a wildlife rescue. We didn't travel more than a few miles off of our planned route for any of them. It's true that you're expected to patronize the business, but the amount we've heard suggested is $20.

RE: Local news story made me chuckle (stolen? dog)

The Raleigh paper this AM reports a shelter adoption day at a local Petco had a dog grabbed by a young man who then ran away. There is a $1000 reward up for grabs. I think that they are missing the point. They had to home the dog, so somebody did. I don't see the crime here. So I guess by your logic anyone having a yard/garage sale should be okay with people stealing their stuff w/o paying? There would be no crime there, since they wanted to "rehome" their stuff anyway? I'm glad the pup was found safe.

RE: Martingale Collar Danger

I agree with ToadToes--it's not just martingales. Any collar is a danger when two or more dogs are jaw jousting. When I have multiple dogs in residence they never, ever wear collars while in the house or playing in the (securely fenced) back yard. I'm much more concerned about a caught jaw than I am about one of them getting loose w/o visible ID. I'm so glad everything turned out okay!

RE: Sealing Granite Countertops-How and How Often?

I do it whenever I think about it. Which is usually no more than once a year. It’s very easy and not too time consuming. I use something I picked up at Bed Bath and Beyond, but I don’t remember the name. It seems to work fine. The process is similar to waxing a car.

RE: Campground in Wilmington NC

The KOA in Wilmington is pretty nice. I'd say above average for a KOA. We've stayed there twice over the years. It's convenient to the city. Good luck to your daughter!

RE: Need an Overnight stop off I-95 near Walterboro SC

We stayed at New Green Acres one time. It was in January, and dark when we got there and dark when we left, so I couldn't see much. But it worked well for an easy overnight stop with hookups.

RE: Down to Road trek?

About 2.5 years ago we downsized from a 35' Class A to a Winnebago Travato. Yes, it's certainly different from the A, but for us the differences are overwhelmingly positive. We gladly traded the room for the much better driving experience, no need for a dinghy, etc. We honestly haven't had a single regret. We enjoyed our ten years with the A very much. When our boys were younger we needed the space, so it was well worth the hassle. But now we're so glad that it's so easy to take off and go, stress free driving, etc.
