RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Dan, Disc problems are among the most painful situations we see. For "minor" issues that don't involve neurological defecits - just pain - the treatment is anti-inflammatories, rest, pain medication and time. Recovery is probable but further episodes are common. For issues that involve neurological defecits, various therapies are appropriate. The exact treatment varies according to severity of symptoms and really needs to be discussed with the veterinarian actually able to evaluate the patient. But, if paralysis is present surgical intervention is often recommended. Acupuncture, laser treatments and medical treatments can all be beneficial to address the pain. It's really hard to watch them hurt and anyone who has thrown their back out knows the kind of pain Pickles is having. I'm sending you a PM. Doug

So sorry for your loss. I know you have given him as much as possible in his last few years.

Dan: ACL tear, patellar luxation, collateral ligament stretch or tear, cartilage tear... A couple of days of rest and anti-inflammatories will usually be sufficient for minor issues. Hopefully it's nothing serious. BTW, assuming the position to urinate or defecate can make the pain worse so they just avoid it.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Today we should set a new record for temperature in October as we will probably hit 90 degrees. We are very hot and the north west is being blasted by snow, crazy weather. We will be heading out Friday starting our way to Sevierville. I called Riverside RV park to see if there was a chance to get in early and they said they did not have a spot open in the park at all for the weekend of the 12th and 13th. She said they have been booked up for 2 months. Looks like it will be crowded. We're also starting Friday to slowly head that way. We've had the same HOT weather with the exception on one cold front that caused a train of strong storms to hit us for about 36 hours. We got 6+ inched of rain with lots of flash flooding. We're 88 today on my thermometer and due to get to the 70s tomorrow. Where is fall????

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

... Better now, but flying home was unpleasant -- ears wouldn't clear as they descended. Had that happen once when I was a kid. Non-pressurized cabin prop plane and I still have nightmares about the ear pain.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

There are some good videos on you tube. They show slide topper replacement, but show how to lock the spring mechanism and take off the brackets. I need to replace the topper on mine (and re-caulk the edge) but I think it's a little more than I can handle.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Do you have a locking mechanism on the slide side wall adjacent to the leak? I had a leak through one of mine that had to be sealed again. The locking mechanism is inside the RV when the slide is retracted but open to the weather and not covered by the slide topper when the slide is extended.

Richard posted on facebook that he's home from the hospital. Sue reported that he still has some issues post op, so we'll all keep him in our prayers.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

I see a lot of assisted living, memory care and independent living places going up. Supply and demand. Same around here. Also subdivisions of smaller homes like we moved to 4 years ago. We're a mix of old guys like us and young people starting out before building families.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

We've had really weird weather patterns this summer too. So much rain in April and May that the farmers couldn't plant their fields. Then NO rain in June and July and the yards were all turning brown. We got about 3" in the last week so everything is greening up.

RE: Pet Food Recall

Raw pet food products test positive for Salmonella, Listeria FDA is asking veterinarians to advise owners to safely dispose of certain Texas Tripe products after the company issued a recall August 15, 2019 Texas Tripe has recalled dozens of its raw pet food products after samples tested positive for Salmonella and/or Listeria monocytogenes (L. mono). The testing was completed by the Office of the Texas State Chemist (OTSC), which analyzed 23 samples and identified 16 as having tested positive for Salmonella and/or L. mono. The products then underwent further testing by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and were, again, found to be positive. FDA and OTSC shared their findings with Texas Tripe and the firm initiated a recall. The recalled products were sold frozen in 20- and 40-lb. cases, which contain multiple plastic pouches. According to the company, they were sold directly to consumers in the following states: •Alabama; •Arizona; •Arkansas; •California; •Colorado; •Florida; •Georgia; •Illinois; •Kansas; •Kentucky; •Louisiana; •Michigan; •Mississippi; •Missouri; •New Jersey; •New Mexico; •New York; •North Carolina; •Ohio; •Oklahoma; •Pennsylvania; •Tennessee; •Texas; and •Virginia. FDA is advising veterinarians to alert pet owners of the recall and suggest they safely discard any recalled products and thoroughly clean and disinfect the areas where they were stored. Salmonella and L. mono can cause illness and death in humans and animals, especially those who are very young, very old, or have weak immune systems.

RE: Pets riding in trailer

Obviously a difference of opinion. I don't think there is much left to discuss so we'll close it before if deteriorates further.

Toxic Bue Green Algae Warning

You may have seen many recent articles and stories about dogs who have died after swimming in lakes and ponds. The issue is Blue-Green algae blooms that happen this time of year, but seem to be worse this year. Dogs get symptoms and die pretty rapidly after swimming. It seems to be pretty wide spread and not isolated to one particular area. The warning, don't let your dog swim unless you know the lake/pond is free of this algae. Running water tends to have less chance of developing these algae blooms. Blue-Green Algae toxicity

RE: Determining a dogs age

We run into the age problem with our Kaylee. She was a stray off the street and being a terrier cross, she's "energetic." She's got terrible teeth, gum disease and we've done several cleanings since we got her. I'm guessing she is at least 10 but could be a lot older.

RE: Determining a dogs age

It's pretty easy to tell up to about 1-2 years. Permanent Teeth have a pretty "fixed" eruption date, though it does vary a little. Adult teeth are all in and fully grown by a year. Wear starts at that point and varies greatly by diet and chewing habits. General health, diet genetics and habits cause so much variation that any guess at that point is just that - a guess.
