  1. Rusty should be having his ultrasound about now. Sending prayers for some good news for him!
  2. Wonderful news! Sending more prayers for a complete recovery, and quick!
  3. Sending healing white light to Rusty, and for you
  4. Those do look like nice boots, but if you're looking to really protect the foot, Therapaws are thick rubber on the bottom. You should email them and talk to them about your specific needs, I think. Another option would be to see if there are any GT'ers in your area that have the Therapaws - then you could see for yourself if they are right for what you want.
  5. We use them for Romi with the corns. Measure very carefully, so you get the right size. It's also a good idea to keep her nails on the short side. Practice inside with them before you have her wear them outside - they take some getting used to. They are pretty much the best boot I've come across, however if corns aren't your issue, there are some others that are pretty impressive, I'll go see if I can find the link for them. Ha, found it. One of the dogs in our playgroup has these, and they make a lot of sense to me, especially if you aren't dealing with corns: Blizzard boots
  6. Sending my deepest sympathies on the loss of your Oliver. Even through the tears, tho, I had to smile when I read your last post. Our bridge boy Cody liked to make little poopy trees of all the shrubs in our back yard - he just could not resist leaving some poop hanging off a shrub if he could manage it. After he died, I just did not want to clean them out. Of course, I had to, and I really miss seeing those little decorations left by him! May it ease your grief to know he's up at the bridge, hanging with our our angels. You'll see him again one day. Run free, Oliver.
  7. Checking in on Carrier - latest update sounds promising, sending prayers he continues to improve!
  8. Don't know how I missed this, but sending prayers for Carrier, and for you, that it's just a funny tummy and nothing serious.
  9. That's actually just krazy glue. Really. My dd worked in a vet office, they use it all the time.
  10. I don't know how I missed this post, but belated hugs for what you're going through with Rickie. I have no experience to share. For bandaging, I do know that Batmom's leggings have saved me some grief with rear leg injuries.
  11. I very rarely go to the vet anymore for cuts or scrapes. I just start the routine up, flush with a mixture of iodine and saline regularly to keep it clean, rub with clean saline soaked gauze to encourage granulation, then prep H to help it close up more quickly. Best not to cover cuts with anything, the air helps them heal. Exception: if the pupper is worrying at it, then we start with the modified wardrobe for the pupper lol.
  12. I'm so sorry. Run free, Duncan.
  13. I am so very sorry to hear Oliver has gone to the bridge. Run free, sweet pupper.
  14. Very happy to read the good news. Continued prayers for a full recovery.
  15. It sounds like his tummy is a bit upset - my guys all eat grass from time to time, and Romi does the fake vomiting thing too. Could be do to with changing foods, or just the stress of being new to your home and all the learning. Just keep an eye on his stools, you may need to switch to a different food if it gets worse.
  16. I do 45 days between doses of heartworm medication. Can you borrow a dose from someone, then return the dose once your order arrives?
  17. Checking in on Jane, thank you so much for updating. Keeping my fingers crossed for the best possible outcome. :grouphug
  18. I'm so sorry for the confirmation. May you have many more good days ahead, and yes, give him whatever he wants to eat, bless his heart. :grouphug
  19. Sending hugs, and thinking of you and Jane, and Jackson too.
  20. My heartfelt sympathies. Gentle hugs from Canada, Cody and many other angels are at the bridge waiting for Boon. You'll see him again one day.
