here is my problem as most of you know Calla has yest build up my problem is she is like a 100 pound dog when trying to put the ointment in and trying to clean them with the malacetic lotion, II have tried to put it on cotton and putting it in that way, I have tried treats and positive reinforcement and also tried restraint does any one have any suggestions I could try I have even tried when she is sleeping !
we are back from Montana! Bentley's teeth went very well! he had two teeth removed and a cleaning Calla had her shots and we found out she has yeast in her ear so was prescribed drops and malacetic wash just wondering if anyone knows if this is the same thing as malasab? (sp) it is odd because Bentley weighs 19.7 lbs and Calla is 17.5 not a big difference in weight and she looks so much smaller then him,the vet and tech had a really hard time getting a swab out of her ear as she was almost…Continue
we have booked a date for Bentley's teeth! it will be on April 10th we plan and driving to Whitefish on the good Friday and camp in whitefish we may as well make a little trip out of it, his teeth and kennel cough and 5 way shot are going to cost approx. $550.00 usa with all the meds and pre an blood work and extra drip I feel really good about bringing him over the boarder but as well wonder why it costs so much here? is it because they think Canadians are rich? really sad that we have to…Continue
so I decided to call around in Whitefish Montana for Bentleys teeth extractions and cleaning as I mentioned I was quoted $1500-$1800 here and even checked here at other vets and it is around the same in the US I will pay around $500 including pre an blood work I am just wondering if anyone who lives in Montana can suggest a good clinic in Whitefish ?
just wondering if anyone has tried or has their pugs on a food called Natures Domain sold in Costco ,we are thinking of changing to it as we feed Natural balance rt now and it is $65.00 Canadian a bag, Costco sells Natures Domain for $40.00 and it looks almost the same ingredients as Natural balance the protein is about 24% 3 % higher then Natural balance any input would be helpful!
