My latest med is causing some drowsiness - later peeps.
Ah, crystals, that’s what I meant! Roxy had a lot of crystals according to the one vet, and we put her on prescription diet, etc. We ended up changing vets, and new vet said, “If you get her to drink more water, you could probably take her off prescription meds; give her a wet and dry mix.” That actually worked, and she’s been on that for 3 years or so.
Roxy was also getting a lot of milkbones. We stopped those, and that also seemed to help quite a bit. Now, she only gets a small treat once a day before bed.
Sharon, how's the pup? Hope he's feeling better, poor little thing
I spent the weekend laying floors. My whole body hurts and if there were a way I could bathe in lidocaine pain cream, I would. But things are starting to shape up.
Master bedroom, before:
The pup is doing good. We had some drama Friday night with him freaking out and acting crazy and we had to call the emergency vet but he seems to be past that.
Ahhh poor pup! Snickers had bladder stone surgery 2 years ago. Since then he is on a cranberry chew regime and no new stones.
Please tell me more about this cranberry chew regime?
Those floors look gorgeous, Leo! Great job.
Glad to hear the little guy's on the mend, Sharon. Poor buddy.
So much for the diet this week!!! Yesterday was treatment day for DW, so I volunteered to have supper ready when she got home. Pan seared 1/2" thick center cut ham steak, sweet potato casserole, and a big platter of fried green tomatoes with Mississippi Come Back sauce on the side.
This morning I was up early making a batch of biscuits to go with the left over ham. Even DW admitted they were better then the store bought, but not quite as good as Jack's yet.
Thankfully we only snacked during the day, because this evening while grilling some chopped sirloin, I noticed we finally had some ripe Brown figs. While she finished up the supper and made the salad, I picked enough figs for sauteed figs in butter, cinnamon, with caramelized brown sugar. OMG they are so good just by themselves, but as a topping for vanilla ice cream, they're over the top.
Guess I'll diet next week
From NaturVet the Cranberry Relief, a healthy urinary tract. Also switched out dog food to a grain free Zignature. Snickers gets a yearly urinary test and no stones in 2 years.
Well, I got the official word of nomination for the State Geo Committee - Chair of the Advocacy subcommittee. I'd be the primary contact for information on (applying for and receiving) grants, oversee a team to accomplish awarded grant activities, and report any state and local government actions that could have impact on the organization's, or member's activities.
I gave my acceptance speech on the front lawn, in the (unidentified bush) garden.
