    Oh, I understand why diuretics are on the 'we do not like them' list, I just imagine there must be a fair number of TUEs applied for, if not granted, given the role they play in managing high blood...

    Or if you have high blood pressure and routinely take diuretics for it, if I read things right. Did I miss something? It seems like that would generate quite a few TUE requests right there,...

    Does anyone else routinely mourn Exo vests, or is it just me? I always intended to get one but at the time they were on the market I wasn't riding and didn't have the spare $$$ for something that was...

    This is basically how I've used this BB for stuff to do with my dog who is having problems. He has seen a vet, but I was wondering about taking him to see a specialist or if there were other...

    Yeah, both of my dogs vetoed them also. Pirate isn't so bad because his feet aren't too furry, but Foxy's feet are like mops even when we try to keep them trimmed. We found she tolerates having her...

    My elf's package got to me in absurdly fast time also. I am concerned about what supplements they may be feeding the reindeer doing deliveries.

    I haven't fully opened mine yet - I was warned that...

    This is pretty much exactly why we vaccinated Pirate and Foxy for it this past summer - usually they're pretty much house mutts, but we go out and about more during the summer and they have been...

    Not really. He got a relatively basic check by the vet. (It's a clinic that aims to provide need based low cost care, so I think they tend to just go with the conservative and less expensive routes...

    Is it usual for the weakness/issues to come and go, though? Because he was gradually getting worse, but then since seeing the vet he's been much better - more stable on his feet, less wonkiness in...

    That's what it sounds like, particularly since his condition is quite distinctly changing. I know some degenerative stuff can be weird, but the level of improvement on a 'good' day like he's had the...

    Eep. I bet that was quite scary. Older dogs you kind of expect to start getting a bit rough around the edges, as it were, but a puppy and in only three days? Ouch.

    So glad he was able to be...

    No real activity restriction beyond just keeping it to what he's comfortable with. (Which means lots of short walks instead of longer ones, mostly. He doesn't do a lot of jumping up/down/around.)

    This would be my thought also. It's unfair to the dog to be enforcing behavior expectations that the dog plain and simple can't meet because of a health problem that's not being treated. And it's...

    I dunno, if you hitched the caribou in front (tandem?) with enough distance, you might get some serious speed out of that pairing. Steering, OTOH, might be an issue. ;)
