I have used Rescue Remedy on my cats. It just kinda chills them out, and I didn't have to go to the vet to get 'kitty downers' for the 4th of July!

Good luck with the move. I live in the Denver area - so hopefully we'll get a chance to swap stories in person!

I wish they had Rescue Remedy for humans. I could use a little right now. Oh, I know! It's called Jack Daniels! And you get it at that special store!

I'm just bummed because my previous dog, Buddy, had so many problems with arthritis. I didn't want Sparky to follow in his paw prints. I've already told him that he's not to pick up any more bad habits from me, my arthritis is being a pain today.

Our Oreo is on glucosamine and also tramadol for pain. It's so hard when she wants to run around like a puppy and then has trouble getting back up the stairs afterwards.

You can use it. I buy mine at the health food store and have used it on myself as well as the dogs. It is awesome. I used it when I was defending my dissertation - it just took the edge of my nervousness off without making me sleepy or too relaxed.

Has anyone ever boarded a dog at a PetSmart PetsHotel? What did you think about it? How was it? I know each would have different employees, but the set up should be pretty standard, right?

We're driving from California to Georgia at the end of the month. Our first stop is Las Vegas and we were thinking about boarding the dogs at a PetsHotel in Henderson for one night. We have boarded them many times before, but always at the same place. Plus, since it's a five hour drive away, we won't be able to check it out ahead of time, which I don't like. Anyway, any information or opinions would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have a friend with a high-energy border collie who's tried many places and this is their favorite. I'm their emergency contact and I've had to go spend time with their dog while it stayed at a couple other spots and make decisions about vet care when she's rubbed her nose raw about of OCD/worry behaviors, but she gets along fine at PetSmart. Comes home tired but mostly normal - not frantic from being away from her family. At this point, I don't think they'd consider boarding her anywhere else.

When you buy the Rescue Remedy, do you buy the one for humans and give it to your pets or do you buy the one specifically for pets for your pets and the human one for you? I ask because frequently they are the same thing just in different packaging and if you are buying it at a health food store it seems that they would only have the human one? The human one is also much cheaper =o) I am definitely interested in this for our cats should we be moving.

Cheers!

Fantastic pictures! Thanks for sharing. :D

The web link I looked at the other day, didn't give me all the pictures. The next one did and so did this one. :D Must be an AOL thing. It's weird sometimes.

Thanks for sharing. She looks wonderful!

it more likely has to do with which link I posted. I can post for the entire blog scrolling or just one entry. you can always see previous ones by clicking on the links in the right side bar. So.. no... can't blame AOL on this one.

Honestly, I didn't even know they had one specifically for pets. I just get the human one, the tincture that you administer via a dropper, rather than the mist. When I'm gone for long periods of time, I have the dog sitter add drops to the water and it really seems to help. I've also added drops directly to my dogs' tongues for more immediate effect.

I think I am going to try some of that for my cats...I have several issues going on here that I really need to address!

I also wanted to tell you all of a product that I used with my elderly BC and now with a fat beagle that we have. Both were suffering from arthritis and I got Flavocin from a company. They shepp it every month so you never run out. I got a similar product from this company for my horse that was a miracle! You can check it out here: http://www.propetsciences.com/ HTH--TErrio

Hi all, I have been offline recently for a while. My Mom just passed away and am wondering if there is some way to tell your dog she will not be coming back, or do they just sense it? The dog keeps going to her bedroom and laying on her bed, and still looks for her. Moping around, as there is not as much activity in these recent days since Mom's passing, now that funeral is over, and brother and wife have left town. So quiet here. Me and Dusty, only, now. Any ideas, or tips?
Wow! such a wealth of information I have read, pet hotels, and nervous medicine for me and my dog, sure want to thank you all for all those tips and info. So enjoyed too, Baqash, seeing your Miss T, beautiful is the word, alright.
Thanks for any reply,
OD

So sorry to hear about your Mom's passing. I wondered why I hadn't seen any posts from you. I don't really have any tips to make the dog understand that Mom's absence is permanent. You can't tell it that she's gone, but after a few days moping, he'll move on too. I think the dog is just grieving in its own way.

Hugs to you and the dog,
TrailTroll

I'm so sorry OD. I wish I could hug you.

Sounds like puppy is in mourning already. I would just be there for him with as much or as little attention he needs. He will let you know.

So sorry to hear of your loss. Just treat the dog like you would anyone who is grieving. Some quiet, peaceful time together and then gradually find some pleasant activities. Maybe take him/her to a new park or a short ride in the car. Just something to divert his attention for a short while. Be kind and patient with yourself too. storm rider

She's talking of retiring end of this year...ha ha, Road Trip!! Must start saving my pennies......dollars would be better....

Hugs to you and the pup OD! It is too bad that you couldnt have taken him to see the body. That is what I always do for the animals here...we havent lost any people though--just other animals. Does anyone know if that is allowed to take a pet to the funeral home? Might be a good thing for us animal lovers to know. Terrio

Has anyone ever boarded a dog at a PetSmart PetsHotel?

Sorry for the slow resonse, but I' haven't been on line. We board the HH puppies (CommunityandCemetery if you want to check out their profile) and they LOVE it. As soon as we pull up in front of the store, they start with the whole body wag of excitement. I don't feel at all guilty about leaving them there.

Our dogs are highly social, and high energy. We usually alternate between extra play time and day camp while they are there to be sure they aren't bored. We've had nothing but positive experiences, and they come home very tired and docile.

On one trip, Community developed a urinary tract infection, and we found they have an on-staff doctor for such situations. They isolated and treated her, and since it happened to be the day we were picking up the dogs, she stayed in the vet's area until we came in.

As you said, staff is different everywhere, but the local staff is fantastic with our guys.

Name help!

My new filly, born May 27th, needs a registered name. I was wondering if any one would care to help? The registry states her name must begin with the same letter as her father. So, her name MUST begin with the letter "R". His name is Routinier, her dam (mother) registered name is Gentle Wolf. We are calling her "Rue" for a barn (nick) name.

Her full brothers name is Revolver, her full sisters name is Roulette. As you can see, any word, whether a real "person like" name, a city, a real or made up name flies.

If I end up using your suggestion, I will send you a sheet of Pink Stuff.

Game on!
