Ok, just received some emails concerning the article. I am waiting for permission to post them here. Bsically, the article in the post was very much wrong, and Jesse Miller is not only against a ban, but was upset by the article since they regularly place pit bulls in homes. So, unless something cha...

Well, in addition to emails, I went ahead and tried calling some of the district offices (it is a little early here, so I only got 2). According to the gentleman I spoke with in the office of City Rep. Ann Lilly (District 1), the article is mis-reporting the meeting, and there is not currently any m...

I would get her on IV or SQ fluids first thing in the morning. SQ obviously less expensive since you'll do them at home. E. Tick infections are pretty serious and can lead to kidney disease. She should also be on doxycycline (or amoxi) too. She is doing a little better about taking water, but still...

Her red blood cell count is down around 10-12% (40-45% is normal) and has secondary infections and is very dehydrated. We are gonna try antibiotics first...
