Drug may revolutionize control of dog population

Even though this is a news article, I think it would be best if I post in health section. Mods could move it if they like. Thoughts anyone? http://www.azcentral.com/news/articles/2011/07/21/20110721dog-sterilize-drug-new.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; News Type Size: A A APrintE...

immunotherapy

Has anyone tried immunotherapy and have success with it. My vet says it works in 75% of the dogs. The only person I know that tried it says it made her dogs allergies worst. It's very expensive here but I don't mind paying if there is a good chance it would work. Is the blood test as good as skin? A...

Re: By Nature Salmon, Ocean Fish & Yogurt Dry Dog Food

if you want your dog to loose weight, 400 cal/cup seems like a lot to me. I'm not a food snob but this is what I feed shady,kirkland-signature-healthy-weight . He lost about 15 lbs on it. He went from 75lbs to 60lbs in about 5 months time. http://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/dog-food-reviews/kirkland-sign...

Re: Support your local veterinary hospital...

It pays to know whats on the generic prescription plans that most places offer for $4 or $10 The last two times I need prescriptions for shady, they are on the plan and target had a free $10 gift card with any new prescription coupon out. So it was like getting my meds for free.

Re: Support your local veterinary hospital...

Although... I must say, it won't make me sad to charge for services instead of medications. We've just gotta change all the vets as competition is a big player in what we can and can't do. Too many vets aren't willing to give up their prescription fees, so those of us who'd love to are stuck betwee...

Re: Support your local veterinary hospital...

I do hear what your saying And I rather pay for services instead of meds. I bought six bags At $29 before I got the script :crybaby: I would gladly write prescriptions and send you to the pharmacy so I can spend more time seeing another pet. Counting pills every 20 minutes gets old... I thought that...

Re: Support your local veterinary hospital...

I agree with you up to the medications dispensed part
I'm sorry but I have a hard time paying the vet 10x the $ then I would at a pharmacy.
Cephalexin I get 90 pills for 10 bucks vs. 84 pills for 90 bucks at the vet.
Iv fluid bag $27 for 12 bags at Costco vs. $29 for 1 bag at the vet.

Re: Nearly 5am and I'm freaking out

I just went through most of those same symptoms with shady. I really thought he was going to die once he stopped eating and drinking. It was his kidneys. After a couple of IV bags he was back to his normal self 1 1/2 days later. I hope your dogs recovery is as quick if not quicker.

Re: Liquid band-aid?

Superglue was used by trauma surgeons in Vietnam to glue the edges of lacerated livers together (ever try to SEW liver?). Works great. It also works perfectly fine in normal skin wounds, and is non-toxic. The only reason it hasn't been approved by the FDA for this purpose is that the studies would c...

Super glue does work the best. It is non toxic. I once sealed a three inch gash on the palm of my hand

Re: Crumbly movements with BARF - 1 week out

No salt needed for my suggestion. Just look at the credentials and decide for yourself. The other reason that vets frown upon a raw diet, is because there is no evidence that has ever been published in a credible scientific journal or paper that suggest raw is more nutritious than cook foods or even...
