So glad you got to the hospital and got help in time!! Take the time to let your body heal and adjust.

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

As Walter's picture depicts, we've had beautiful days mostly in the 60s with cool nights and NO freezing temps. The dogs have enjoyed the walks and new smells. Mrtyn, we're just down the beach from you!

Happy New Year to all. Ditto Dan's wishes for safe travel, health and prosperity.

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

I watched the game until half time. The real turning point was a "targeting" call on an OSU defensive back followed by a couple of other penalties. That got Clemson going. OSU took the lead with a few minutes left in the game, but Clemson drove the field at the end to make the winning score. Good game.

Pandion Ridge in Orange Beach is a newer RV resort very close to the Wharf. Bella Terra RV resort in Foley has pretty good reviews. Do a google search for the area and you'll find over a dozen very nice, highly rated parks and many more a little lower on the scale.

RE: FDA announces Dog Foods that can cause heart failure UPDATE

UPDATE: A recent continuing meeting with Dr. Green from Purdue Vet school relayed some current thinking on this issue. Certain breeds are over-represented, Golden Retrievers are most represented. Grain free foods are implicated, some brands more than others (sorry I don't have the list). Taurine supplementation can stop many but not all cases, so they suspect that there is something more than just taurine deficiency going on. THE MOST IMPORTANT FACT: Damage done is NOT reversible when diagnosis is made and treatment is started (taurine and heart medications). Progression of the cardiomyopathy is usually stopped but not reversed. I think the message is clear. DO NOT FEED GRAIN FREE FOOD TO GOLDENS. In other breeds, it's a poor choice. Doug, DVM

Post your Christmas Photos

We had one of our nieces and grand-neices over for Pre-Christmas dinner. Obviously the dogs were super excited. https://i.imgur.com/yQXsaE9l.jpg width=720

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

Sad decision Richard, but I think that's something we all will face sooner or later. Burch, there are tons of places. We stay at Gulf State Park for a month every winter. Full hookups and they have sites on water and the park is just across the road from the gulf. We love this park and would highly recommend it. There are many nice private campgrounds around Gulf Shores, Foley and Orange Beach.

RE: Dealing with pet passing while on the road

We had several situations like this over the 40+ years I was in practice. Living in an urban area, I don't recall any campers, but several on vacation or passing through. We dealt with a local business that could offer cremation and if that couldn't be done within the time frame the ashes were shipped. I would get recommendations from the campground people, the AAHA website or lastly from internet reviews. Doug, DVM

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

We don't head south until after Christmas, but the picture is indeed from the RV. We're camping in the woods on a property our son has in extreme northwest Illinois. We've got a group of family and friends that pool resources and are having a great holiday.

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

Ditto on the Happy Thanksgiving wishes for everyone. Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I hope everyone has a splendid day tomorrow. For those of you that are traveling be safe. Sounds like certain parts of the country will have some weather issues to deal with. We did our travel yesterday and got a rare east wind that was a tail wind for us. We're spending the holiday over the river and in the woods in extreme northwest Illinois. We had some rain and thunderstorms last night and the wind is very strong today. We may or may not get a little snow, we'll see. Again, stay safe and have a Happy Thanksgiving!! Sandy & Doug

RE: Royal Canin SO Urinary food-shiny?

Had a similar conversation with my vet, and he said pretty much what dturm said. Only in my vets case the owner's dogs wouldn't eat the food, so he took it back and he returned it to the manufacturer. Definitely if they don't eat it, take it back. Trust their nose :).

RE: Royal Canin SO Urinary food-shiny?

Storage, transportation and formulation changes (due to available ingredients) are all possible causes. I'd keep track of batch identifications in case there are any issues. Generally I've found there are minor differences from bag to bag or can to can that don't really cause issues.

RE: FDA announces Dog Foods that can cause heart failure UPDATE

As a possible cause that is under investigation is the nutrient Taurine. It is not considered an essential nutrient for dogs, but is for cats. DCM is common in cats (compared to dogs) and is treated with taurine. These dogs have been treated with taurine as well. There are a few breed that have DCM (not related to the food issues) and they respond in many cases to taurine supplementation if diagnosed before serious permanent heart damage happens.

RE: FDA announces Dog Foods that can cause heart failure UPDATE

The report was a compilation of all the reported cases of DCM (dilated cardiomyopathy). The way these things are done is to extensively question owners about EVERYTHING and then evaluate any statistical relevent coincidences. The next step is to find out why. I'd say the brand is not as important as the ingredients. I don't feed my dogs (and don't recommend) grain free foods unless there is a specific reason (celiac disease or allergies to specific grains). According to the data, 91 percent of the cases were on grain free foods and most of those were pea/lentil as a component. Doug, DVM

FDA announces Dog Foods that can cause heart failure UPDATE

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has released a list of pet food brands that they say could cause congestive heart failure in dogs. In July 2018, the FDA first alerted the public about an investigation that found a possible link between dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) and dogs eating certain types of pet food. Canine DCM is described as the disease of a dog’s heart muscle, can often result in congestive heart failure. Breeds that are typically affected are large and giant breed dogs, according to the FDA. However, many of the 524 cases of DCM reported to the FDA have included smaller breeds of dogs, suggesting a lack of a genetic connection. In many cases, food linked to DCM was in dry form and contained ingredients including peas, lentils, potatoes, and sweet potatoes. Many others were grain-free. WHDH Story

Do your dogs/cats watch TV

Ours usually react to some sounds, but today for the first time Sasha was just staring watching and following the action!! It was a movie on Bravo with Jennifer Lopez (Sasha has good taste :)). But this was a first for her. Kaylee doesn't react at all.

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

That's really good news about Pickles. Not doing surgery is always the best option if that is a viable option.
