  1. I guess I just entered into the real world and my $650+ dental estimate is the norm and not the exception. At least my $450 Embrace wellness insurance reimbursement will cover a large part of the bill, but then I will have used up my wellness reimbursement alotment for the annual premium year, which becomes effective March 2, 2021-March 1, 2022. Thanks everyone for my enlightenment.
  2. Since hound owners on Greytalk are from all over the place, I'd like to get an idea as to how much your vet charges for a dental, to include sedation for anesthesia, IV catheterization, anesthesia, IV fluid, hospitalization, disposable materials, biohazard fee, chemical blood panel, I/H CBC panel, and I/H add-on Lyte 4 (all the things that are listed on my dental estimate). In other words, the total fee. My new vet bought my former vet's business recently (clients and building), so I expected prices to be a bit higher, but the estimate I got yesterday shocked me (over $650) because it is
  3. Maybe drinking the water too fast at times? If so, perhaps someone on this forum can give you some tips to slow the drinking down?
  4. Same with my Sheba. Her fur is soft and fluffy anyway, and boy does it come out this time of year. Although I vacuum a couple times a week, I often forget about under the bed. Was in the living room looking into the bedroom the other day and thought one of her toys was under the bed--not--it was a pile of fur! Must remember to vacuum under the bed more often.
  5. My friend cooks chicken necks in a slow cooker for 24 hours, then mashes it up. She adds cooked brown rice, cooked carrots, cooked green beans, and oatmeal, all mashed together. She adds it to kibble. You could try adding the mix to your kibble slurry. I tried my hand at it. Slow cooked the chicken necks (about 3 pounds) for 24 hours, used an imersion blender to mash it up. Also used the imersion blender to mash the cooked carrots and green beans. Mixed the mashed necks, mashed veggies, and cooked rice (I only had white rice) together. Had no oatmeal. Added the mix to kibble each meal. Sh
  6. Sheba gets fed twice a day, 7 am and 4:30 pm. She starts working on me an hour before the 4:30 pm feeding, barking mostly. I simply ignore her by going into my computer room and shutting the door for the next hour. She's not starving, just trying to get my attention. If she can last from 4:30 pm until 7 am the next morning, she can wait an hour before dinnertime.
  7. Very logical thinking on your part and I applaud it. He is what he is and you love him for it.
  8. I have a black female turning gray who turns 13 come January (have had her since she was almost 2), has hip arthritus and is undergoing treatments and meds for it, barks all the time (most at me for attention), has sleep startle, has space issues, doesn't like to cuddle, and hates cats, squirrels, skateboarders, bicyclists, motorcycles, lawn/leaf blowers, and motorcycles. But I still love her to pieces.
  9. Sheba has the same thing from time to time. I consider it some sort of mucus and just wipe it off. Others might have different advice or concerns.
  10. I agree with all posters' advice. My Sheba bit my then 3-year-old niece when I had Sheba for about 9 months. It was my fault for not paying enough attention, not Sheba's fault, not my niece's fault, my fault. Sheba has sleep startle, is a resource guarder, does not like to be cuddled at any time, especially when on her beds, and in general is a snarky lady. Everyone in my immediate friend/family chain knows this and follows my rules. You have asked for advice. Advice and suggestions have been given. If you and your family choose not to follow this advice, I suggest you rehome Alfie to ano
  11. Nothing doing for me this year. Will be putting up Christmas decorations and sorting gifts to begin the process of wrapping and mailing (early).
  12. Sheba once ate a half tub of butter at one of my lunch parties and had all the ladies hysterically laughing at how quick she was. They still laugh about it. No ill effects.
