    Pitchforks already? I'm not a member of USEF, nor am I terribly familiar with the Kesslers beyond what I see about Reed, but it sounds like Murray has a good plan. I like his statement about making...

    It is hard. She's always had thunderstorm anxiety....we have a standing Rx for Valium for that.

    I'm calling our vet in the morning to see what she suggests.

    How do you use the poultice as a hoof pack? Do you just glob it on the soles and then wrap like you would Magic Cushion?

    I'm a Magic Cushion believer, but am always interested in alternatives. ...

    We ran into Dom and Jimmie Schramm 2 years ago in line for a Bloody Mary......at 9am. It is the south after all....we southerners can justify a cocktail any time of day...

    If any of you enjoy a cocktail, I highly recommend a Man o War AND a Bloody Mary!

    We had a blast in 2014 as first timers. Sadly, I was VERY pregnant last April and am not ready to leave the baby...

    Post-Partum Update:

    So birth didn't go quite as expected. After laboring for 24 hours, I'd had enough and we ended up in the O for a C-section. I have zero regrets and at that point, I would've...

    I just wanted to chime in with a warning that many anti-anxiety meds can lower inhibitions, thus making the dog more of a bite/attack risk.

    I have a pair of Keens that are nice and breathable. Crocs make some styles that are nice too bc you can hose them our and they dry quickly.

    Be prepared to make some modifications to your fencing. Both of our Catahoulas will scale a fence in a heartbeat. We fixed that with a strand of small animal hotwire across the top. I think you'll...

    This. We are one week out of TTA surgery and so far, so good. It was never a question of "Do we pursue a fix?", but we are lucky in that we have savings and didn't have to make a decision based on...

    We are not doing crate confinement either. She gets extremely stressed. We are, however, going to confine her to a hallway while we're gone to work. She can't be trusted to stay off the furniture....

    They do recover quickly. What we've struggled with is how stoic they are! Super high pain tolerance.

    She's been a good old girl, definitely part of the family. We'll do what's best for her and her injury. I'm thankful that we won't have to decide based on finances, to a point.

    She's a feisty...

    Holly, which repair did you opt to have for your girl? There's quite a few different treatment options. It makes my head spin.

    Thanks Marla!

    I will definitely ask about assisted rehab. My girl doesn't do confinement well and can be quite the stubborn mule, so I'm expecting rehab to be a challenge.
  25. Help ease this dog-mom's anxiety...old girl has a torn ACL!

    We found out yesterday that our 10yo Catahoula has a torn ACL. We're pretty devastated, mostly that the big girl is in pain. Breaks my heart. She has an appointment with the orthopedic specialist...
