Barely skimmed the posts so don't know if someone has already mentioned Costco. They ship at no charge so you don't even have to be located near one. http://www.costco.com/Pharmacy/frameset.asp?trg=HCFrame.asp&hcban=Banner.asp&hctar=finddrugs.asp&Article=pricing%20information&log=&am...

A case of 12 bags from Costco is $26. You do not need to be a member to use their pharmacy. (Another medication was $5 at...

I used an anxiety wrap for my thunder/firework phobic, all around sensitive dog with good results. http://www.anxietywrap.com Having her wear a tightly fitted dog shirt by Charming also seemed to do the trick in making her feel at ease. (I just checked their site; it seems they're no longer availabl...

Thanks for the opinions. I wish I sought advice here instead of from my veterinarian. :( Dog A, Thief died at home; he never made it to the vet. Dog B, Moss was in renal failure. On 11/22, the doctor mentioned that blood work done 2 years previously was fine and said something like, “Save your mon...

Baby egghead

Just perusing Petfinder. (I have friend who just put her dog down so am hoping to find a suitable rescue.) Well, I was shocked to see a bull terrier pup: http://search.petfinder.com/petnote/displaypet.cgi?petid=7892776 I know some people who love pit bulls also like BTs so I'd thought I'd put the in...
