  1. he takes 3.75mg meloxicam at 6:15am. I am doing the 2 x day, not sure if that's the right way to go some say that, others say once. I give up.
  2. our vet wasn't sure which way would be better as she doesn't prescribe it much so that's why I'm asking for advice here, from anyone that might have used it before. She said I could do either way but didn't know which was was more beneficial
  3. our Larry is doing very badly since Sunday with his LS and other issues and our vet is adding Amantadine to his current gabapentin/tramadol/meloxicam meds. He is to get 200mg every day and my question is, would it be better for him to give the 200mg (2 100mg pills) at one time, once a day, or 1 100mg pill every 12 hours for twice a day? Our vet doesn't Rx it much so wasn't sure which way would be more beneficial to give. I want whatever will be the best for him. He is a big #89 boy and will be 13 on Monday I don't know if he will make it to see his birthday. Thanks in advance.
  4. I'm so very sorry your beautiful girl had to leave you
  5. love the carrots. I make a big batch (like enough for 3 pint deli containers, packed full) and keep them frozen until I need a new container (keep the one I'm using refrigerated).

  11. Our Zeke has suspected IBD with an intolerance to chicken so he is on the RC Hydrolyzed dry food but also eats a variety of raw food (when he eats). He also gets a B12 tablet daily (Cobalequin) and a B12 shot every Sunday and I really think they help (he's been on the B12 for 2 years now). https://www.1800petmeds.com/Cobalequin-prod12068.html?mrkgcl=364&mrkgadid=3326531480&AFFID=GG&ID=3326531480&Price=EMAILC&creative=380957260276&device=c&matchtype=b&network=g&gclid=EAIaIQobChMImf_TkNur5gIVgtdkCh09mg4wEAAYASAAEgLSlvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds The B12 and syringes we get from the vet as well (online store). for raw, he gets beef tripe, raw turkey (cut up, not ground, won't eat it ground...Mom has to cut whole turkey breasts into tiny cubes for his Highness), cubed up beef (whatever's on sale, like round roast, rump roast, fat removed), 73% hamburger (won't eat anything with less fat), cubed up beef heart/turkey heart, duck hearts and beef liver (but very little liver), cottage cheese - all rotated as best I can (he doesn't get all of that in one meal). We've been battling D since September and he gets 2 ProPectalin tables 3 x day and Olewo carrot "meatballs" (cooked) almost every day. he just one day up and decided he didn't want to eat anymore (this was January of 2017) and we've been battling/hand feeding/whatever it takes to get him to eat since then. I do not know if he has PLE -- how was Morrie diagnosed? sending hugs and prayers you can figure this out, Liz.
  12. leash walk them out when it's icy. We have been doing that since last winter when it snowed then melted and turned the entire yard into 3" thick of ice. Our patio is 20' long from door to where the grass starts and we use ice melter and a large towel from the door to about 4' out. We also have this HORRENDOUS blaze orange plastic fencing (4' high) that goes around one half of the patio side since they would vault from the grass over the 4' wide rocky area (that is around the patio) and they would go down if they hit the icy cement (the other 1/2 is fenced because that's my garden area and turns out Zeke thinks that's his personal diggy-diggy hole if he can get to it.... ) having to walk 2 dogs with a fenced in yard might seem silly, but with Larry being 12 3/4 and Zeke 10 3/4 we just can't risk one of them going down hope you can find something that works.
  13. what a beautiful tribute to such a wonderful, sweet little girl. Thank you for sharing your love for her with us. She is truly an angel. sending many, many hugs.
