  1. I haven't read the entire thread, so apologies if this has been suggested, but canned tripe is irresistible to hounds here, even those a bit under the weather. And being as . . . aromatic . . . as it is, you don't need to add a lot to their meal to make it appetizing. Keeps well, well covered in the fridge, and does not need to be heated to be appealing, which is a very good thing : ) We get Tripett, but there may be other brands.
  2. Teri, I am so sorry for your loss of your larger than life Jill, and for the end of an era.
  3. Jan, you loved her so much, I am so sorry she had to leave.
  4. These are what we use as well. Hounds have had no chaffing or other irritation.
  5. Ask for an itemized breakdown of the cost and go from there. The range you're quoting suggests the vet is doing additional things while changing the bandage. The vet providing treatment or an assistant should be able to both provide the breakdown and walk you through it, so you understand the treatment being provided for your cat.
  6. All these plans have a maximum coverage level, which may explain why Healthy Paws, Trupanion and maybe others who do not have a ceiling were not included.
  7. I am so sorry, she had such a beautiful face, and those ears . . . !
  8. Cyanide poisoning is also possible with cherries - similar to plums, the pits contain cyanide and I recently read the stems and leaves do as well.
  9. I see she's having trouble getting comfortable Welcome home pretty girl!
  10. My understanding is that, unlike with people, the drug can be taken by dogs with food, unless, as pointed out above, a specific thyroid blood test is being done.
  11. Praziquantel may do the trick. Ask your vet about it. It's the anti-tapeworm ingredient in Interceptor Plus but is also available on its own from human pharmacies (and maybe some vets, no idea) and can be used in conjunction with preventatives like Advantage Multi, for example.
  12. Sleepypod safety harnesses are crash-rated - details in the page linked below. This vendor is a GT member which is how I know about this particular site: https://www.hound-safe.com/products/sleepypod-clickit-sport-dog-safety-harness
  13. I am on here for the first time in days - glad things are going well for Petunia, hope for you and DW's dad as well.
  14. Just seeing this sad news. I am so so sorry. Kate sounds like such a character, the kind you miss everywhere you look. Godspeed sweet girl.
