  1. Can you wrap a poise pad around it? I've used it on bleeding wounds before. Rocky had something removed from his leg and after we got home a vein started shooting blood. I put a poise pad on it and wrapped vet wrap around that. Those poise pads hold a LOT of liquid. Sorry about your girl
  2. Poor momma dog!! Let us know when you hear how she does. Makes me glad my pre-adopts have all been boys.
  3. My first pre-adopt is home being lazy. I got to visit pre-adopt #2 yesterday, Shrubby. It will be a while (hopefully)! I've also got my eye on this guy who's just started being hand slipped - Templeton (the red boy)
  4. Happy Gotcha Day Seamie! I can't believe it's only been 3 years! Hope your personality starts showing soon
  5. Can you tell me how to make a word a link? I can't remember how to do it. I want to add Romey's name - Nose Stradamus to my signature like the others and have it link to his GD page when you click on it. I have the others that way, but I can't figure out how I did it. I see how to add a link, but I don't see how to make the link say something other than the website, if that makes any sense. Thanks!!
  6. I probably have a million pictures of Rocky in this position, staring at me: I miss him.
  7. Definitely doesn't seem like the Boston is enjoying it toward the end! I have all non-barkers. I never heard Mimi or Rocky bark. Molly will whine and howl but no barking.

  9. Mimi (age 14) has had a couple of big, ugly bruises on her belly the past year and a half or so. FIrst one I freaked out and had my vet meet me at 10:30 on a Sunday night. After blood work and everything we think she just bruises easily. I'm never sure what she's done to get one, I usually look over and see it. She's not as steady on her feet as she used to be. I have Vitamin K here to give her if she gets one. As long as it doesn't get bigger from when I first notice it my vet said to just keep an eye on it. They're usually gone in less than a week.
  10. Thanks Kelly - I just got back with some Poise pads for Spencer's belly bands. He now won't lay down because he doesn't like the belly band or the pads Oh well, he will get tired and give up eventually. It's not like they're hurting him! Thanks for the tip! Poor Spencer! I'm sure he'll adjust to how they feel. Another friend had a dog w/ LS who leaked a lot and always smelled like urine. THe pads made a huge difference for him. Kept him dry and much less smelly. He didn't like the extra padding, but he did get much perkier when he was dry on a regular basis! Kelly
  11. When my friend's dog was on Pred and having a lot of accidents she had great success with putting a Poise pad in the bellyband. They absorb a lot of urine and also help keep the dog dry. Target sells mattress pads that are flat, not fitted, that are waterproof. We use those on the floor for Mimi. I think they run about $8.99 and are almost the size of a twin mattress. Kelly
  12. Mimi (age 14) is the same way. I got her when she was 8 and she used to weigh around 75lbs. I had her at the vet a couple of weeks ago for bloodwork and she's down to 54. Her bloodwork is totally normal and she eats great. We just switched her to Go Dog food and she seems to be looking a little better. I don't want her to get too heavy because her back end is getting weak, but I'd like her to gain about 5lbs.
