Re: Vaccination help, should I get it?.

Only one person has ever survived rabies, and that person is a vegetable, even low risk is not a risk I would take. Actually not quite accurate. Only 5 people have survived rabies that are known of (prior to the three most recent cases in 2004 and 2008) - and they received treatment. Of those that ...

Re: Bee Sting

Yes but the same can be said for crossing streets. You never know when the next car might come so you always take a look around. It's of course common sense to watch for swelling in case it changes, but it's nice to know he's not allergic out the gate. I personally just have no fear of bees in gener...

Re: Fire works

Toby is superconfident - but what we did since we were in firework central in each city we were in since we got him, and it sounds like a battlezone in those areas ... was take him out to the backyard with us, with his harness on and his prong collar and his flat collar and leashes attached to all t...

Re: Vaccination help, should I get it?.

I thought that most of the labs were discouraging decapitation more and more because of the risk of aerosolization during the process, and that they were now moving to having the intact body being sent in for the labs to do the removal for testing rather than having the doctors do it and sending in ...

Re: Bee Sting

Aww! I remember Toby's first sting ... we were walking to the car and there was this bee on the sidewalk on it's back just loaded with pollen and Toby spots it, and before I even could blink he's of course inspecting it and immediately the first thing he decides to do it press his nose into it (it's...

Re: Bumps....ingrown hair? Pimples??

Actually never mind ... even though you have them where you live, I'd bet you would not mix that up with an ingrown hair or pimple! lol

Re: Bumps....ingrown hair? Pimples??

They have cuterebra where you live?

Do any of the bumps have like a small hole (it's how they breathe).

If so, it might be those.

Re: Vaccination help, should I get it?.

I have the vet run a titer - even though that's not always accurate, it's better than just guessing, for the ones that you can run a titer for. Most of the best vets out there feel strongly about not OVER vaccinating I think. But then I sort of get an interesting viewpoint on the interesting cross s...

Re: Hatred for squirrels?!

Yeah Toby is the same way about those pesky squirrels. I have no doubt if he was left unsupervised he'd score a couple. i just thank my STARS that it is squirrels and NOT porcupines! Because Toby for SURE would have to investigate it and would of course feel a need to push it with his nose and for s...

Re: Was it a Seizure?

Maybe she got a pincher bug or a bee in her mouth and it zapped her on the tongue or cheek or something and she was just wigging out?

Re: Butch's first swimming attempt

Well, gators *do* climb fences and have a frequent habit of ending up in "gator free" areas ... but I assume being that you actually live in 'gator territory, you know that better than anyone.

GORGEOUS pup! Looks like he had fun!

Re: leather bonding glue?

Hmmm there was a shortage in stores for a while a couple of years back, so I wound up stocking up on a few tubes when I came across it as most folks that loved it were having issues finding it and were having to buy it online, so I haven't had to buy any in the past 2 years or so. Ace hardware ought...

Re: Advice Please! Dog cut his paw. Take to the vet? *PICS*

For me ... any injury by that is created by rusty or dirty metal pretty much means letting a doc make the call, just like if it was my kid!! I'm a worrywart lol!

Re: leather bonding glue?

Oh yeah - and some tips ... I put the glue into a paper plate and apply with like a bamboo skewer or toothpick. Cuts down on waste and fumes. Also I found it is best to apply to both ides and let it dry a bit so it has more "tack" or "grip" - bonds a little easier that way. And i...
