SO is taking care of everything. Yes, he has some medical training in his crazy background. She sat with me this afternoon and is getting around better; takes her meds well from him.

GENERAL DOG CARE / Re: Grass Pee Pads for Dogs?
« Last post by Lola on December 09, 2018, 07:18:25 AM »
These aren't grassy ones, but I hear Dr. Judy Morgan talk about them all the time.  She also uses them for her dogs.  That's all the unhelpful info I have...

GENERAL DOG CARE / Grass Pee Pads for Dogs?
« Last post by Pookie on December 08, 2018, 09:17:32 PM »
Is anyone familiar with a type of pee pad that looks like grass that dogs can use to eliminate in the house?  Any recommendations would be great.

Thanks in advance!   :-* :-*

Supplements / Re: Looking for advice on a milk thistle supplement
« Last post by Pookie on December 08, 2018, 09:02:54 PM »
I'm trying to figure out which one has the most "bang for my buck."  I like that the Herbsmith one has a lot more reviews, and their customer service responded to the 1 and 2 star reviews, but the other one is cheaper.  Both are made in the USA  thumbsup1 and are organic  thumbsup1.

I couldn't really figure out which would last longer based on the dosing (math was never my favorite subject).  And the vet now has Mom's dog on a prescription that contains milk thistle:  https://www.amazon.com/Rx-Vitamins-Pets-Hepato-Support-Capsules/dp/B003PR32TG

Decisions, decisions . . . .

GENERAL CAT CARE / Re: Jennie has been diagnosed with carcinoma (cancer)

Weigh in Saturday  ;D (they hate it, well Jennie doesn't mind)

Jennie is maintaining her weight exactly. She still weighs 8 pounds 8 ounces.

With the addition of the bupe I can have some life, without too much worry.  I've been wracking my brains on ow I can do anything on a Saturday such as have a hike or visit a friend, because her gabapentin schedule is 6 am, 2 pm 10 pm.  there is no way to alter that.  That fits my working day and it has to be.  When managing pain the key is to stay on top of it, because if it gets a grip it's difficult to get rid of even with drugs.

So I worry about being late with Jennie's gab, especially when it's going to be really late.  With the bupe to overlap that won't be such a problem.

For instance today I have a hike with my sister. It's not a long all day hike, but I will not be home at 2 for the gabapentin. In fact I probably won't be home until 3:30 or 4.  So I did delay her gab by 15 minutes last night (10:15) and an additional 15 minutes this morning (6:30) but that still only gives me until 2:30.  However I can give her a bupe dose before I leave at 9:00 and that will hold her over when the gab wears off, until I get home. She's due for bupe tonight too, but she is allowed to have it up to twice a day so that's okay.

Last night I went to pick up the meds and they didn't have the bupe ready (they don't make it up until I get there) and there was an emergency and no one to do it. This of course has really thrown a wrench into my morning because now I have to go get it this morning right when they open. The receptionist said they would make it up last night and put it in the vault but I am not optimistic that they did. I may have to stand there this morning and wait for someone to fil 28 syringes.

However I don't want to wait until Monday, what if we have bad weather?  I can't risk running out.

This is why the mail order will be so convenient, in addition to the cost savings.

PS  If Jennie gets her gab at 4:00 pm, and then I give it again at 10 to get her back on schedule, that's okay too, because she can have it at early as 6 hour apart when needed. I cleared that with the IM vet in the beginning.
