  1. Gail I would go the T-shirt route as well. Snickers will be anxious enough without having to deal with the collar. Marilyn has one at the kennel you could borrow if you really needed it.
  2. If you have a Therapaw I have an easier soaking method. Saturate a couple of folded papar towels in epsom salts water mixture. Put the saturated paper towels into a baggie and place in on your dogs foot, making sure the wet towels are on the corn area. Then cover with the Therapaw and let soak for 2 to 3 hours. I usually find the most stubborn corn starting to separate after 2/3 hours of this soaking and the pad is so soft you can usually pull the corn right out!
  3. Good news Gail. I hope she has a very smooth recovery. If you need anything let me know, I am driving through your town all the time.
  4. Oh Wendy I am so sorry.
  5. Oh Joyce... hang in there! for Jester
  6. Gail Dr Couto will respond very quickly to you. He is consulting with my vet about Finn and keeping me in the loop as well Finn's needle aspiration was practically painless for him. He got tramadol for the first 3 days but I am not sure he even needed it. I would not hesitate to do that for Snickers. for Snickers
  7. Poor Lilah. It was great to see her so relaxed and happy on Saturday. She is such a fluffy cutie pie for pain relief. I am so sorry.
  8. I have met with Dr Pastor in the past with Finn. She is very sweet and a good friend of my vet. I have seen significant growth since 4/22 Finn has an appt on Monday. We will see what the doctor says and go from there.
  9. Good news.... It's NOT cancer ... it is infectious/inflamatory. Culture revealed a common bacteria that can be treated with a wide spectrum of antibiotics. Bad news... if that doesn't work then treatment is the same as bone cancer... amputation.. Finn is NOT a candidate for amputation as he has a very compromised right leg. Dr Couto is still on the case and consulting with my vet for the best treatment options. that the antibitics work :luck Has anyone had a dog with a bone infection that was treated surgically? (We are talking removing the effected area of bone and implanting bone from hip.) Specifically I would like to know 1 How painful was the proceedure? 2 Recovery time? 3 Was it successful? .....and most importantly, in hindsight, would you do it again if you had to?
  10. I found a good test of corn pain is to squeeze the pad from the sides... if they pull back you know it hurts. Good luck... we live in corn hell here too.
  11. Very handsome... Elena has great taste! Welcome to the failed fostering club
  12. If that is what you think it is try giving her a piece of bread. It may help push and foreign matter down her throat.
  13. My Wink has just started her "seasonal" hacking. She has done this every spring. I am guessing that it is some allergen that is aggravating her throat she hacks and gags, then it's over.
  14. We're friends!!!!!!!!!
