My poor little 12 year old boy has lower back problems. He would benefit from heat on his back and I am looking for a heated doggie blanket. He sleeps in the bed with me so heated bed not needed. Anybody got advice?
DH took the call, so I got the "high level summary" Three lumps were removed One was just a fatty cyst so it wasn't sent for testing The other two went for testing. One was benign the other wasn't quite so good -- DH didn't have all the technical terms, but he said the cells didn't split so they should have gotten... more
I love the pictures that the photographer got. (For once, it wasn't me, lol.) The proceeds from the picture sales go to a local charity to help animals in need of vet care.

Last week I really made strides she told me she... more

So the timing was actually quite good. She only lost the stump and all her other teeth are in good shape. She is doing... more
A few weeks ago, I found a very unusual black spot on Woody's skin. The only way I found it is because there was a tiny scab on it that I had to investigate. The spot is very black, about the size of a thumb nail, and has irregular borders with a tiny lump in the center (kind of like a small insect bite). At some... more
How's that for a subject??? Poor Wilson cannot shake the infection in his right gland. He has had it infused with an antibiotic three times, flushed with an antiseptic, he is on oral antibiotics, and now because there is so much inflammation, prednisone. UGH! He had it expressed last Tuesday. Yesterday it was so... more
