Hail Call to LABS4ME

11 posts in this topic

Labs,

I think I am going to need a suggestion on where to bring my dog for possible surgery.

We took our Dog to an Emergency Vet in Coon Rapids and my wife is terribly upset at their attitude. She says it seemed they were only interested in the money. Anyway, I know you know alot of good people/places out there.... any suggestions???

NorthEast Metro if possible.

Thx,

Mike

Best of luck. Just some words of encouragement. Went through a similar event with our first dog. Lump in throat, trouble breathing/swallowing. Biopsy inconclusive but leaning towards cancer. Opened her up for surgery and was obviously a bad infection. Hope you encounter similar results. Extremely humorous ending to my story that I will add when I have more time and you hopefully also report a happy ending.

Pretty sure I know where Labs is going to send you. Don't let the longer drive alter your decision to get the best care.

Sorry Ken,

I was going to call you last night but my brother needed to talk.

The vet gave us some Pain killers, Tranquilizers and Steriods.

They told the wife to give her pain killers for the biopsy pain and Tranquilizers to keep her calm. We only gave her 1 pain killer. She is extremely calm for a springer, she's my second one.

We have been giving her the Steriods and she is doing much better. Makes me wonder if it just isn't an infection.

Anyway I told the wife to call and bug them about the results of the biopsy. I haven't heard yet.

Ken, Is their a time frame in which you prefer to take calls?

Thx,

Mike

Labs,

Thanks for the recommendations. I will be calling one of them shortly.

Update:

The Vet called and they said that the biopsy test didn't show signs of cancer, but I got the feeling that they may not have biopsied the correct area, per the Vets comments. They want me to bring her back in the another visit.

I will be taking her somewhere else to get a second opinion.

Thanks for the support, Maxx is doing fine. Breathing normal and back to her spunky self, chasing the watering hose.

Mike

    • Black Hills Spruce are doing very well with the clay and other competing trees in our yard.  The Colorado Blues are doing OK with the soil, but they sure like space, air, and non-compete areas of full day sun.  
    • We see the gray cheeked thrush once in a while, first time this spring. First sighting in the yard for the Eastern Phobe so checked it off in the book.  
    • Well my team didn't do too bad I had 3 make it to day 3 (Dean Rojas finished 54th), and 2 fished Sunday.  I actually landed in the 96th percentile for the tournament and bumped me up to 80.1% as of now.
    • no mulch expert but i wouldnt think so, unless the mulch has die in it!!!!!!!! yea i have a lawn, i dont bag my clippings. i rake it up by had.....like hard workin union guys do ....... but dont ever get near enough!!!!!!!
    • The Cheffrey recipe that thirdeye talks about is a good one.  it's a little work but it turns out great - cooking the fillets before hand allows for easy flaking of the fish and makes for a shorter cooking time.  They're VERY filling, like thirdeye says, can only eat about 2 at a time.  i like to whip-up a little chipotle ranch-type dipping sauce for these as well.
    •   You don't have a lawn? 
    •   Sure thing! FYI, I skipped the netting and just put the ham on a rack. Worked just fine. Good luck!
    • @Haug  that was for hunterdown...  
    • congrats, great bird and pix
    • Another great week to start off the open water fishing season! Fishing has been consistent even with the ever changing weather last week. Some boats still catching over 100 fish in a day, weeding through small fish to find good keeper walleyes and saugers. Key depths around 17-24' of water. Good fishing all across south shore. Fish are responsive to most kinds of bait right now but jig and a minnow is the best presentation with pink and gold jigs standing out.  Some anglers pulling spinners.  Others hit reefs in 25-30', also good. Jumbo perch and pike mixed in all over the lake.     Walleyes are still in the Rainy River but fishing has slowed besides a good morning bite. Most walleyes have headed back to the lake but some remain in the river. Same as the lake, a jig and a minnow have been best tactic for boating walleyes.  Sturgeon fishing is closed until July 1st.   Up at the NW Angle, anglers are hammering fish.  Many have limits before lunch.  Fish are all over islands such as Oak Island and Little Oak. Jig and a minnow up at the angle is the go to method. Gaining steam is trolling with cranks in the shallows or pulling spinners to keep baits moving. Colors should include chartreuse, pink, glow colors and some gold. Key depths ranged from 16-26' of water. Crappies can be found in Canada in 20' of water with sandy bays. Pike being found in current areas. Many smallmouth bass found with walleyes.
