Re: Cat Tail Pull Injury & Urination

My boy with the spastic bladder was hard to express because it took so much pressure to overcome the bladder's muscle tone. He squirted like a fire hose. :mrgreen:

Re: ANNPE and behaviour

:whale: I wonder if a trial of gabapentin is warranted? Gabapentin (or the newer relative brand name Lyrica) is used a lot for nerve pain, and it's a bit of a sleeper, too. Perhaps he'd get double duty out of it?

Re: Bogart, 3-legged pitbull does agility on America's Got Talent

People probably think it's surprising that tripods can do all that, but it's good to see wonky critters getting good attention so frequently these days. :thankyou:

Re: Animax Ointment for female diaper dog

And they don't need to be. You can buy surgical gloves at certain places, probably pharmacies, vets, and special orders, but I'd think they'd be overmuch here. Maybe for inserting urinary catheters or something...

I suppose, but exam gloves aren't meant to be sterile.

Re: Animax Ointment for female diaper dog

Use a glove. I would anyway, cuz I don't like gooey on me, and that kind of stuff tends to be particularly hard to get off. If the cream were put on thoroughly I wouldn't worry too much about some wiping off or smearing; it won't all come off. I'd prefer that to the hit-or-miss of hoping to smear it...

Re: How to clean fresh fecal (poop) stains on carpet

Years ago I had a client's daughter who was a wizard at getting her mom's diarrhea out of the carpet. I can't remember what spray she used, but she'd grind it into the carpet with a washrag and her shoes.

Re: CH and urinary incontinence? (Young male)

:whale: Hmm. If it were me, I'd try expressing him, as if he were spinal cord injured, but not everybody's willing to learn that. Is he willing to use a pee pad? My Ares never used a litter box in his life, but he was willing to use a pee pad. For him, the bigger, heavier human ones were best becaus...
