Re: Miralax and lactulose

You might even be able to find a flip top to fit, although I don't know that it wouldn't leak if the bottle turned over. :smart: Yeah, I know what you mean about giving them a cue to something bad coming!

Re: ANNPE

I was going to suggest homemade, too. That's the way I went for Baby's wheels. It took some experimenting and remaking, but it was so cheap it didn't matter.

Re: ANNPE

Hmm. I don't know that I'd do it yet, especially since she didn't take steroids, but could you do hydrotherapy (swimming) with her?

Re: ANNPE

:welcome: It's interesting that she's gotten her legs back, but not her arms. I've known of humans in a similar state that they called "walking quads" (quad short for quadriplegic). Did she take a steroid or an NSAID after the injury? Does she take anything now?

Re: Pure bread Golden Retriever Puppy Missing a Paw, will need home!

:slant: Tripods are more disfigured than disabled, if you ask me. When he goes to the vet, many vets will suggest amputating the remaining limb. Personally, I'd wait on that, since, in this day and age, an adopter may want to try a prosthesis for him. I've always let my tripods keep their remaining ...

Re: Please help, advice needed - cat with paralysis

:whale: Hmm. My first thought was to use prednisone, but I don't know anything about it in relation to her heart. Is she taking an NSAID? That might be almost as good. I, too, would be highly reluctant to mess with such a fragile old girl. It's not unusual for movement to be inconsistent, especially...

Re: Pitbull with Ivdd needing some help

Hmm. I wonder if the vet could Rx something special to knock him out at night so you can get some peace?

Re: Pitbull with Ivdd needing some help

I second Carol's reply about meds. I've used them, as have my critters, and they can help. You might want to use a cone as well, but he may be more comfortable with meds.

Re: New, Lost, and Frustrated with Vet

A new update on Ivy. I called the specialist my husband's cousin recommended as soon as they opened yesterday morning and they originally made an appointment for this coming Thursday, but this morning her records came from our local vet and once the specialist reviewed them she called and asked tha...
