Re: Recurring Rash Issue - Pup

Sounds very suspicious of a staph hypersensitivity. Could be other things too. Sounds like they are starting to look. I would suggest considering a dermatologist if possible.

Re: Lab Pup & Medication Amount

So sorry. I missed this, did not get an email. Don't know why.

The dose is 10mg/lb twice daily. 700mg twice a day. Too big for 500mg alone. You could ask for 1@500mg and 1@ 250mg and be...

Re: My Latest Blind Build

Very nice looking setup. I predict dead birds in that. Looks like you need to bring it our way if any Cans show up. I think that would work very nicely.

Re: Dog eyes

Couple of questions before I can answer.

Are we talking "distichiasis"? Ask if that sounds familiar.

Or are we talking a "dermoid cyst"?

These are two very different conditions with very...

Re: Big problem

You are describing my dog to a Tee on his first hunt. Force fetch is the answer. Be really solid with it and don't move on to the next step until you have the full and complete A+ grade for that...

Re: water intoxication?? maybe?

16 months would be real young for any prostate issues.

Could have just had a belly ache from drinking too much water.

Re: water intoxication?? maybe?

Water intoxication usually happens when a patient is severely dehydrated and then gorges on water. Causes electrolyte abnormalities and can lead to brain swelling. I don't know if it has been...

Re: treatments for bilateral dysplasia

Depending on the location and level of dysplasia, a consult with an orthopedic surgeon would be a really good idea in such a young dog. Many cases of elbow dysplasia are correctable with surgery. I...

Re: Pulled pork....

Perfect looking bark DeadR. Looks like it was pulled perfect. The fat looks just right.

I also like he recommends smoking at 225. Perfect temp for pork. Lots of folks get it too hot.

Re: Pulled pork....

You may need water, you may not. I run a side fire box and never use it. After 2 hours, no more smoke flavor is getting in to the meat. Then it is all about the bark. Foil, really good foil, is...

Sorry. Am in Mississippi. Sounds to me like they are right on track. With his history, I would be pretty aggressive too.

Re: When to put a pet down...

Good advice from all. I always tell my clients when they ask me "when is it time?" that it is so individual to the patient and the owner that I just can't say. When you know, you know.

Re: Neutering and effects on health

A quick review of the impressions of several veterinary researchers contained a lot of the same concerns as mine, plus the problem with a retrospective study vs a prospective study. Correlation does...

Re: Neutering and effects on health

Couple of thoughts. That article is not telling the whole story-ie later age neuters (I almost never neuter male or female before 6 months-I may have done 3 or 4 in a 25 year career) It is also a...

Re: Glucosamine for aging lab

I read up on Dr Brown and it makes sense. She came from the equine side where intra-articular injections are more the norm. That is always how we learn things, trying to think outside the...

Re: Glucosamine for aging lab

After further reading, it also seems to be very much dose dependent as well as the type of steroid used. Many of the earlier studies were with much higher dosages of steroids- both oral and...

Re: Griz "again" Spindle tumor

No sorry, that was for the mast cell tumor from your first dog.

Yes, it was most certainly graded by the pathologist.

Re: Griz "again" Spindle tumor

Without further therapy (meaning removal only), about 80% will recur with a median time to recurrence of about 8 months. (got this from an oncologist) Radiation therapy is the treatment for choice to...

Re: Glucosamine for aging lab

That is interesting, because I have always been under the impression that steroid injections delay cartilage healing (steroids orally too) and that unless there is clear cut autoimmune arthritis,...
