(hte active ingredient is Diphenhydramine) it might not be the same thing a...

what medicines do you keep on hand?

what is the stuff that you keep "for in case."

on another thread, someone mentioned benadryl for allergic reactions which i keep, too. i love "nfz puffer" (.2% nitrofurazone) a topical powder which is good for dog bites, cuts as well as eye and ear infections.

or maybe that's more of a country thing, knowing that you'll come back and be a loyal customer the better service they provide so they don't mind not making money off you everytime? since their pool of customers is more limited, getting return ones is maybe more important?

8) well, i guess we always called it territorial as anything that got within the dog's territory was instantly killed. i think of boredom as chewing inanimate objects not other animals.

you might also consider rotating them around the yard so that they don't get too territorial over their certain areas. sometimes that can happen and then anything (like your cat) that accidentally gets within reach is pretty quickly killed. if they are rotated around the yard, it seems to help. one ...

who gets their vaccines from the feedstore?

i live in a low income rural area and i think if i can get my neighbors interested in doing things like this maybe we can put a dent in the parvo deaths around here. i think each set of shots is like four bucks. most people around here have probably given shots to their farm animals but may have not...

i think all dogs are different. i raise and slaughter my own food. some of my dogs love the extras but one's tummy can't take it. i only feed her cooked food. the rest, they lick their lips when i say the word rooster. :thumbsup:
just like anything in life, one size doesn't fit all.
