    Swiffer. Daily.

    With hard floors, I just have gotten in the habit of a daily swipe around. It was MUCH worse when I had a roommate who had a fluffy haired dog than it is with my lab as his...

    That's rough if you can't get a doctor to follow up on it with you/for you. I don't have any experience with that personally, but I would think that like others have said, a neurologist would be the...

    At pretty much every practice I have worked in, it has been recommended at 4-6 mos. However, one of the last veterinarians I used (number one of three now in one year) said that she thought my dog...

    I hear what you're saying about different industries. I'm totally gobsmacked by the stories I hear from my DH where things are 12 weeks late and the company basically tells the client to pound...

    I just want to reiterate: sterile saline. Not shoving regular water up in there. And I wouldn't do anything at all with it before speaking to your vet. Because I'm not a vet nor do I play one on...

    I wonder how many people saying "everyone else does it" have actually participated in business in some of these other countries and seen how leave is handled?

    I have. And perhaps my experiences...

    To be fair, it's not just ISIS that isn't covered--and I think not granting them a stage is wise in fact. But is really challenging to go to any US based news source and get a feel for what's going...

    Not exactly a survival story, but if you haven't read Cheryl Strayed's memoir "Wild", it's quite good. I read the book and then got it on audible for a later trip and listened again while hiking on...

    I think these days, it needs to start younger than it did when I was a kid. I can't believe how early some girls begin menstruating and the kinds of sexual conversations and activities that are...

    I've found that even for horses who aren't noticeably arthritic, having had a bit of a workout prior to the trim makes it easier on them. For the anxious horse, it can also get their head into a...

    What does your vet think? When I've dealt with similar, I was flushing the area with sterile saline then flushing in abx, horse was on IV abx, etc.

    I'll be interested to see what others say.

    I tip room service like I would in a restaurant. I usually leave money for housekeeping, but not at the same rate. Maybe $10-15 per day. I do not tip...

    Tapes don't usually how on a fecal unless they're shedding eggs and not just segments. I've rarely seen tapes in a fecal (when I worked at a vet clinic).

    But I saw segments around the rectum so...

    I had a herd that joined up with mine for several years, mostly in the winter. I bought extra hay as a result. None came into the barn, but they were friendly.

    Tapes were my issue. I had to...

    If it were pain, you'd think he'd be giving you trouble when you try to rasp. But just to check it out, you could always give some banamine or bute a few hours before the farrier comes.

    How do you feel about door knockers?

    About fifteen years ago, I found a great piece of land to lease for my horses by literally driving out in the country and knocking on doors of homes with land and barns. I met some really cool and...

    I want to say I put a 40 gallon in to our barn in VA last year. Maybe it was 50? We mostly wanted it for laundry and to soak feed. The biggest challenge was getting the room insulated properly as...
