Funny that WW is in Colonial Beach. I hadn't heard of any handicappers down that way.

Re: Please help new to this Skipper my dog is lame both back legs

Yeah, some butt wipes can be icky, but not all of them are. I use a fair number of them, and the current ones are by some company named Honest or something like it. I don't notice any stickiness with them. They were a review item, but I'd consider buying them.

Re: Labrador L5 IVDD post surgery

The physical therapist thinks she is "giving up". They are unable to work on her legs, particularly the right knee/hip because she gets very upset. I am also unable to do any kind of range of motion exercises. Looks like she's developed contractures in the right leg. My Koi Boy had been shot in the...

Re: Labrador L5 IVDD post surgery

I don't know either. A guess would be there is some ingredient in the wipes that is making her itch. I'm not even sure there is any regulation on a manufacturer calling a dog product "sensitive" for advertising purposes. I doubt it. Does the FDA (or whoever) require it to be tested by veterinary de...

Re: Labrador L5 IVDD post surgery

Thanks Carol, I will order this so I'll be ready for future :) For dog's with indwelling urinary catheter, is it normal to have some sediment or mucus floating in the bag?

Re: battle scars are getting to me

Yeah, it is, and it's weird how they seem to go in bunches like bananas. Some of them just get to you, or in you... :cry: I'm sorry for your losses.

Re: Labrador L5 IVDD post surgery

That's great! :hurray: I don't know about the weight-shifting and all. I wonder if you can try testing a little to see which leg might be stronger now? It might be too soon to really tell.
