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

Richard, so sorry you're going through this. I'm sure they will be able to find a permanent solution. Charles, we're also happy Charlotte is doing well. Our Brother in law had surgery and radiation on a tumor in his jaw/salivary gland. He couldn't eat and swallow well and got "hooked" on milkshakes. He's back to normal now but he has to stop for a shake at every Dairy Queen he passes. :B

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

Dan, did you walk up to the observation tower on Clingmans dome? That was really beautiful, but I'm not sure my knee would let me make the walk now. Richard, I hope you recover rapidly. I know the chronic problems associated with aging can be trying but hope, faith and a sense of humor seems to help us. We're with you in spirit.

RE: Fireworks season

I Was Wrong Sawyer hates fireworks. He was ok when they were in the distance but tonight is another story. No rain either it occurred last night. Will be thankful when the 4TH is over. I also was wrong, Sasha doesn't like them either.

RE: Out the window

These types of stories make me shudder. During my 40 years of practice I saw several cases involved with animals and vehicles. The worst was a dog who had a leash on and jumped/fell out of the vehicle and was dragged for about a block before the driver noticed. The dog survived but had a severe "road rash" on the rear legs/feet where he tried to keep up. Pets sitting on the driver's lap and dogs with head out the window are pet peeves of mine. Think about an air bag inflating with your dog on your lap or compression between you and the steering wheel with the dog in between. Re: dog's head out the window... I had a case of chronic conjunctivitis (eye infection) that I couldn't clear up. Finally figured out that the dog rode everywhere with his head out the window. This was early in my career and made a lasting impression and helped with future diagnoses. Best case is that the high wind dries out the cornea leaving it susceptible to ulcers and infection. Worst case is that the blink reflex isn't fast enough to prevent a foreign object from doing severe damage. OK, off my soapbox. Doug, DVM

RE: AARRGHH! Jesse may have anaplasmosis-UPDATED

Our fur baby contracted Ehrlichiosis several years ago (just one more of the dozen or so nasty diseases ticks carry), and although she was treated at the time, she still always tests positive, but shows no signs of the organism.. Our Sasha was supposed to have Ehrlichiosis when she left Turkey. A SNAP test showed positive and she was treated with Doxy, but never had clinical signs of disease. We did a titer test to differentiate species of Ehrlichia (I wasn't as familiar with the species usually found in Turkey) and she tested negative. We either had a false positive on the SNAP test done before we got her, or she had exposure to the tick borne disease and never actually got the disease. Doug, DVM

RE: FDA lists brands of dog food linked to DCM

Thanks for posting this (you beat me to it). For those of you who have not or will not read it, the summary is: Grain free foods are associated with cardiomyopathy... Large breed dogs are more commonly affected (Golden Retrievers are the most common breed represented)… Peas and legumes are over represented ingredients... We still don't know the causes, but there could be a genetic predisposition... CONSULT YOUR VETERINARIAN if you see any symptoms of heart disease. I suggest you do this anyway for dietary suggestions. Ads on TV, internet and discussions may not be your best source of info... My own personal opinion is that "grain free" foods probably are not the best choice (regardless of brand) unless there is a specific dietary reason (allergy or sensitivity). Doug, DVM

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

...On the way the generator would run the a/c's at a stand still but once we started moving it would quit... I've had that issue as well. Check the oil level, mine is very sensitive to low levels and cuts out when rockin and rollin down the road. Also, I had an issue with a fuel line that was hanging down. Fireworks are legal here in Indiana and they seem to go all summer. Our Kaiya was terrified and taught Kaylee to be scared. Sasha couldn't care less. We have yet to find a place isolated from the fireworks near us... Doug

Dave, I'm glad you were able to repay the comfort he gave you during your difficult times. I'm also sure he knew the special bond and love you shared. Sorry for your loss.

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

I don't know how the infrastructure keeps up with all the housing. Burch These are the issues we are having here. The roads and school improvements have not kept up with the growth. We're lucky we're retired because we can usually adjust our travel times to avoid the busy times. We love our "new" home and the area, but there are some issues.

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

We got more rain yesterday. More rain again today. Tuesday is supposed to be dry then rain rest of the week. The ground is saturated, We have flash flood warnings now every time it rains. Last night on the news they showed Granpa's Cheese barn in Ashland had 6 feet of water in the Parking lot. We just can't seam to get several days together with no rain. A lot of farmers still have not gotten there fields ready to plant. If they don't get them in before the 20th it is to late for corn. They have a few more days for soy beans but time is running out. We're in a similar pattern :( We moved a few years ago to a growing community that has been carved out of farm land. We have a field out our back door that has been planted with corn or soybeans every year we've been here. Right now it's only growing weeds. Most of the fields that are interspersed between subdivisions have not been planted. I assume when the farmers are able to plant, they will hit the huge fields that don't require the logistics of moving between subdivisions. I don't think they will get these smaller fields planted this year.

RE: CBD oil

The discussion here has presented some of the issues with using CBD in animals. The legality sometimes may rely on the interpretation of the legal authority you are dealing with. State laws are in direct violation of federal laws regarding marijuana. Anecdotal evidence has been very positive regarding CBD use in dogs. The problem is that it's use is new enough that we really don't know optimum doses, dangerous doses (although this does not appear to be an issue), long term effects and appropriate uses. There is a lot of research being done right now and we're getting information rapidly. The other issue is that the OTC forms are not regulated and tested in many cases, so you have to be careful about sourcing. You may or may not be getting what you think you are. With firework season coming (already started here :() I'd be interested if anyone has had success in use relieving anxiety with fireworks. Doug, DVM

RE: Older Dog and Night time

This is Wikipedia's description of CCD (canine cognitive disorder) and it's pretty accurate. There are medicines and OTC supplements that can be helpful. Doug, DVM

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

I wish we could send some of the water we have to those of you who are in need!! We're not in an area subject to flooding (like those around every river in the Midwest) but our ground is soggy. Lake Michigan is 2 feet above normal levels for this time of year. Most rivers are at, near or above flood stage and will be until fall. Another major problem is that farmers can't plant their crops. By this time in normal years we have over 90 percent of corn planted and we're only at 30 percent here in Indiana. I suspect some fields may not get planted this year due to weather and the unsure markets because of potential tariff policies. I wouldn't want to be a farmer right now.

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

We just got back from a month in Jo Daviess county (extreme NW Illinois near Galena) where our son has some property and has an RV site set up for us. We are in an area of the country where we've had too much rain. The Mississippi has been at or near flood stage for a record amount of time. width=720 We got home just in time for a line of thunderstorms roll through the area that produced a small tornado that touched down about 5 miles north of us yesterday. Mostly trees blown down and some siding blown off. We were sitting it out in our safe area with the dogs and had no damage.

RE: Cooper, not good (final update last page)

So sorry, Dan. I know you will continue to give Cooper the best life possible. I wish we had answers to cancer. Oral Squamous cell tumors are particularly difficult to treat. We're with you and Cooper along this difficult path.
