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

By the way, just in case you missed it Georgia beat Notre Dame last night. 23 to 17, good game And Missour beat South Carolina 34 - 14. (At least 1 win in the SEC this year :B)

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

There are some good videos on you tube. They show slide topper replacement, but show how to lock the spring mechanism and take off the brackets. I need to replace the topper on mine (and re-caulk the edge) but I think it's a little more than I can handle.

I think our first rally was in 2012 in Berlin, OH.

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

Do you have a locking mechanism on the slide side wall adjacent to the leak? I had a leak through one of mine that had to be sealed again. The locking mechanism is inside the RV when the slide is retracted but open to the weather and not covered by the slide topper when the slide is extended.

Richard posted on facebook that he's home from the hospital. Sue reported that he still has some issues post op, so we'll all keep him in our prayers.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

I see a lot of assisted living, memory care and independent living places going up. Supply and demand. Same around here. Also subdivisions of smaller homes like we moved to 4 years ago. We're a mix of old guys like us and young people starting out before building families.

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

We've had really weird weather patterns this summer too. So much rain in April and May that the farmers couldn't plant their fields. Then NO rain in June and July and the yards were all turning brown. We got about 3" in the last week so everything is greening up.

RE: Pet Food Recall

Raw pet food products test positive for Salmonella, Listeria FDA is asking veterinarians to advise owners to safely dispose of certain Texas Tripe products after the company issued a recall August 15, 2019 Texas Tripe has recalled dozens of its raw pet food products after samples tested positive for Salmonella and/or Listeria monocytogenes (L. mono). The testing was completed by the Office of the Texas State Chemist (OTSC), which analyzed 23 samples and identified 16 as having tested positive for Salmonella and/or L. mono. The products then underwent further testing by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and were, again, found to be positive. FDA and OTSC shared their findings with Texas Tripe and the firm initiated a recall. The recalled products were sold frozen in 20- and 40-lb. cases, which contain multiple plastic pouches. According to the company, they were sold directly to consumers in the following states: •Alabama; •Arizona; •Arkansas; •California; •Colorado; •Florida; •Georgia; •Illinois; •Kansas; •Kentucky; •Louisiana; •Michigan; •Mississippi; •Missouri; •New Jersey; •New Mexico; •New York; •North Carolina; •Ohio; •Oklahoma; •Pennsylvania; •Tennessee; •Texas; and •Virginia. FDA is advising veterinarians to alert pet owners of the recall and suggest they safely discard any recalled products and thoroughly clean and disinfect the areas where they were stored. Salmonella and L. mono can cause illness and death in humans and animals, especially those who are very young, very old, or have weak immune systems.

RE: Pets riding in trailer

Obviously a difference of opinion. I don't think there is much left to discuss so we'll close it before if deteriorates further.

Toxic Bue Green Algae Warning

You may have seen many recent articles and stories about dogs who have died after swimming in lakes and ponds. The issue is Blue-Green algae blooms that happen this time of year, but seem to be worse this year. Dogs get symptoms and die pretty rapidly after swimming. It seems to be pretty wide spread and not isolated to one particular area. The warning, don't let your dog swim unless you know the lake/pond is free of this algae. Running water tends to have less chance of developing these algae blooms. Blue-Green Algae toxicity

RE: Determining a dogs age

We run into the age problem with our Kaylee. She was a stray off the street and being a terrier cross, she's "energetic." She's got terrible teeth, gum disease and we've done several cleanings since we got her. I'm guessing she is at least 10 but could be a lot older.

RE: Determining a dogs age

It's pretty easy to tell up to about 1-2 years. Permanent Teeth have a pretty "fixed" eruption date, though it does vary a little. Adult teeth are all in and fully grown by a year. Wear starts at that point and varies greatly by diet and chewing habits. General health, diet genetics and habits cause so much variation that any guess at that point is just that - a guess.

RE: dog food for old dog

I have BSL 2 lab work training and experience (testing human blood and serum samples). When your job entails developing new tests for biomarkers in human blood and serum samples you learn about pathogens and minimizing exposure risks. You can read about the 4 bsl levels here Mark does indeed know what he's talking about (and has the training and experience to back it up)!!! I value his input and our differences here are academic and minor. Just sayin'

RE: dog food for old dog

Even dogs 100 percent inside carry microbes. Some are more virulent and dangerous than others. No argument here. My point is that the risk is not ZERO, there is a real risk when Salmonella is introduced into the environment.

RE: dog food for old dog

I can’t see how the human health risks associated with feeding raw food to dogs is any different than the human health risks associated with handling raw meat and eggs in the kitchen while cooking. One just needs to pay attention and clean the surfaces exposed to the raw ingredients, be it in the kitchen or where the dog eats. While we’re on the subject of risks associated with feeding raw eggs; don’t forget about the risks of eating raw cookie and cake batter. Think about the surfaces contacted while your dog sleeps: floor, bed, couch, your lap. They lick themselves and us. We know the surfaces contacted during cooking and prep. Your whole environment may be contaminated by a dog carrier of Salmonella.

RE: dog food for old dog

Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian. Dogs can and do get sick with Salmonella. You, your kids, other animals and friends are at risk also. Treating salmonella risk as a dog only issue is a little short sighted, IMO Doug, DVM

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

Glad Terry is doing better. We know reactions to medications... Sandy has been fighting a bout of AFib for the last two months. Her cardiologist put her on Miltaq and it got her out of AFib, but she had a reaction to the med. Went off it and back into AFib. Started a new medication and converted again and so far no reactions. We've got one of the Kardia Mobile devices where we can record an ECG using the cell phone. The program has an evaluation mode and the ECG can be emailed to her cardiologist and they (the Kardia mobile folks) have a cardiologist that can evaluate it for a small fee. I've read ECGs (not a cardiologist) but I can tell abnormal readings. This is really nice to have when we're camping and out in the boonies. Richard, we hope the surgery cures your problem and the catheter disappears.

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

Septicemia is no fun. The good news is that there are amazing antibiotics that can address the issue. We're praying and pulling for you.
