Yummy Fall & Winter Treat

Got these pomegranates at Wegmans' last weekend. The avrils are plump and very juicy. Yum!

Our Corn Therapy

My husband & I have brought Hanna to our vet for months now for regular hulling of her corns but walking is still difficult for her. Other treatment modalities that I am contemplating on trying if Hanna's limping (due to painful corns) persists: Kerasolv, Abreva, and soaking the affected paw/s in water with epsom salts on top of the hulling. I am happy to say that this is the treatment the works for Hanna: Durham's Wonder Salve (our vet says this salve makes it easier to remove the corn) + corn removal (every 2 weeks or so)using the dental root elevator technique(which I have learned to do by myself) and Therapaw booties (she only wears these during our outside walks). We are so glad to have our happy prancing girl back!

Not One But Two

yep, we have 2 Therapaw booties now. Hanna's 2nd bootie arrived this week and for the first time in months (even with the hulling of her corns), she is walking without any limp, she has gone for long walks and is actually wagging her tail as she sniffs from tree to tree. Why we didn't think of getting 2 booties right away beats me. Can't sing enough praises for this wonderful bootie...


On a sad note, lots of lives are affected by the floodings in Asia and even here in the Southeast (Georgia, Tennessee). I hope Mother Nature gives the battered areas some respite from all these tragedies and people learn to respect her (the environment) more.


Got a heads' up on a Nutro dog food recall from our greyhound mailing list. Here's a link: http://www.nutroproducts.com/press10-1-09.shtml
