1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

We went to our vet today for a blood draw.They will do a work up on it and send it to Sterling Hieghts.We didnt get results untill this afternoon because they had a emergency situation when we got there. It seems that a clients dogs got into and ate a box of DIET CHEWING GUM. It must have tasted good,but they were there with very serious kidney and liver issues as a result. They didnt tell me any more but I could tell by thier tone that it did not look good.Keep the DIET CHEWING GUM locked up!
Robins blood glucose was rather elevated at 400,as opposed to 200 during the surgery,and her liver enzymes were elevated. they thought the liver thing may be a result of the Meloxicam so we suspended it untill Dr Lorimer at Blue Pearl sees the readout. She did chase a chipmonk into the tube cross member on the loader this afternoon and was creating quite a scene trying to dig it out. I raised up the loader and poked him out with a fiberglass electric fence post so that she would not get dirty and/or greasy from the loader!

I can't remember the name for it, but yeh that artificial sweetener is really bad! on a dog. I can understand a vet putting everything on hold to work on it!

Glucose, well, you just gotta stop giving her those sweet treats! I know how glad you are that she's feeling (and seeing) better but c'mon guy, seriously, Twinkies are not an acceptable dog treat << just teasing >>

Going mostly off topic - I can really relate to her being able to see. I've had bad vision since I was too young to remember. When we had our eyes tested at school in, like, second grade the nurse asked me what direction the "E" was pointing and I asked "What 'E'" and promptly got told to stop playing ... the truth of the matter was that I couldn't see it, so it's been either glasses or contacts ever since. Two years ago they removed a cataract from my right eye ( no fool here, if they messed up one, I could live with one - but if they messed up both - I wasn't taking that chance! ) last year they did the other one and I have 20/15 in both eyes! It's amazing to me to be able to look at the hills in the distance and see the trees sticking up from it! I, literally, never knew what I was missing.

It makes this experience for her very personal for me and you have no idea how glad I am that she can see again!!!

I can relate - when I was 13, I got glasses for the first time. When I walked out of the office, I was amazed to see that you could see individual leaves on the trees, that the trees had gaps between the branches where you could see the sky and that the trees really weren't "green lollipops" sticking up out of the ground lol!

My uncle who is about 8 years older than me, he was adopted because his biological family had severe medical issues. My grandparents were very happy and willing for him to enjoy his biological family, my grandparents had the funds to care for him, they couldn't. My uncle has had several tumors removed over the years and has been on dialysis for about 20. The largest tumor was the size of a grapefruit in his head, degenerative loss of eyesight was inevitable, when he went for his bachelor's degree he was told to give up, he wouldn't have his sight in the 4 years, he took accelerated courses and graduated in less than 2 years. He called my dad on his birthday in March happy as anything, he has outlived all of his biological family. I share this, because eyesight is one of the most precious gifts we have, and probably more precious to a dog. I love the commitment, love and devotion John and his wife have for beautiful Robin.

Robin had her 5 week check up today.The pressure in both eyes is within normal parameters,and everything is healed up with no visible scaring.Dr Lorimer said she had no restrictions but still is on 4 sets of eyedrops twice a day.It looks like a succesful opperation!
