    Ear thermometer efficacy

    Hi everyone! Has anyone used an ear thermometer on your dog/cat? If so, do you find it effective and accurate? Are any of you who are vets/vet assistants using this at your clinics? I'm interested in purchasing one, but only if it has been found effective and accurate. Thanks!:sonn_u11:

    He is feeling much better already! He's getting back to being the pain in the butt I've come to love. :-D Thanks for the well wishes!!! He received Metronidazle (flagyl), Spasmolin, and Sucralfate (Carafate). I don't recall the name of the injection...it's on my receipt.

    Dental/oral rinse

    For now I've put a hold to administering the rinse. I was really noticing improvement in breath & pllaque so I'm a lil disappointed by my:no2: dogs' reactions to it. :-(

    How would you handle this...BSL in Texas

    Thank you all for the informative posts. I am also in Texas & for years have worried about BSL making their way here. I would never allow someone's ignorance to be the reason my dogs leave my life. While saddening tragedies happen, one cannot blame a breed of dog for such events. I will be...

    This is just the type of ignorance I am tired of. People who try to ban specific breeds from existence based on nonscientific & inaccurate data. Ugh. They need to educate themselves before they utter a word.
