    Question of the Day - Monday, March 1, 2021

    When we had pest control out during the summer, we got a one year "warranty", so my plan is to have them come in the spring for prevention around the same time I call the city, and HOPEFULLY it will get taken care of before the end of July when my one year is up. When I see some work getting...

    Question of the Day - Tuesday, March 2

    I think they would assume that I got arrested for going "ape :censored:" while defending someone or an animal.......Considering I've done it before....and to clarify I have NOT been arrested...but the beating someone up part....yeah, I did that. I don't get mad often...but watch out if I do...

    Corona Virus Now Spreading

    @Lari , I found this article...Although it doesn't mention the J&J vaccine specifically, it does help explain the extremely low risk of adverse reactions when it comes to vaccination while breastfeeding. COVID-19 vaccine guidance for those who are lactating is based on faulty assumptions...

    Question of the Day - Monday, March 1, 2021

    Work on getting someone out to fix our house.....water and carpenter ant damage from last year...:(....but we have to wait for the snow to be gone. I have to call the city to force my neighbor to demolish and remove his garage (I think that's where the carpenter ants came from...it's actually...

    Corona Virus Now Spreading

    The latest numbers for the J&J vaccine are much better than what was first reported. It's saying that it's 72% effective, (before it was only 65%?) and 100% effective at preventing death and severe illness requiring hospitalization. Also, zero cases of allergic reactions has been reported. I...

    Corona Virus Now Spreading

    I know a new variant is a mutation of the original strain, but my though process was that it was named a "variant" when and if the mutations change the way the virus "acts". This virus has been mutating since the beginning, many mutations don't affect the virus that much and some will lead to...

    Blindness after surgey

    I'm NOT a vet, but depending on the kitten's kidney function, I wonder if her blood pressure spiked real high? High blood pressure can cause both blindness and seizures....The good thing...if the blood pressure was controlled quickly, the resulting blindness can be reversed, and I assume there...

    Corona Virus Now Spreading

    Has anyone come across a FULL list of the new variants of Covid? "They" only ever talk about the main three but many sources say there are "many" more, and I can't seem to find them. Perhaps those reporting are interchanging the terms "mutations" and "variants"...which is why they say there...

    The roll out for vaccinations in my province has been announced (Ontario)...They are currently working on health care workers and then 80 plus. Beginning on April 15, people between the ages of 75 and 79, followed by individuals between the ages of 70 and 74 on May 1, 65 and older will begin...

    Cystotomy Reovery

    I found this...https://directvetsurg.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Bladder-surgery.pdf It is a post op information sheet. Seems like the bloody urine is quite normal for up to 2 weeks post surgery. Although my cat didn't have surgery for his blockage, it took well over a month before his...

    Getting organized - Home, Health and Life

    I've thought about that, but we have a multi level (side split) home. And it's not open concept either. I think I would find it a pain in the butt to have to carry it around the house....it sort of takes away from the "automation" of it.

    Getting organized - Home, Health and Life

    It's been a while but I'm still working a little bit on my "checklists". It's been really busy around here so I haven't had much extra time...I'm finally caught up on my other stuff so I'll be working more on this project of mine.

    How to quarter Benazepril tablet?

    Oh and depending on the pill...sometimes I found that it was better to NOT push the blade all the way thru. If it's tight enough and has the pressure, it will sometimes "crack" in half so you get a clean split and don't end up with all the extra powder and little bits.

    How to quarter Benazepril tablet?

    Does the other side of the pill have the line down the middle?

    How to quarter Benazepril tablet?

    I've had to quarter my fair share of little pills. It's tedious. I don't know what to tell you other than I just made sure to push the pill as tightly to the end of the cutter as possible. I did find that after you get them cut in half, putting the cut side in, so the blade touches the cut...
