  1. I am wondering if anyone has any non-bred hair sheep for sale in the Western NC area (GA, SC, VA)? Wethers okay and slighty dog broke is good. Thanks, Tina
  2. I just spent 20 minutes trying to find out how to get the book online and all I came up with was Amazon and they don't have it. How do you order the book, please.
  3. Laura, I do hope your see a difference once she is on the Pb. If you want more info about Pb and KBr you can read up on them at the following links: http://www.canine-epilepsy-guardian-angels...enobarbital.htm http://www.canine-epilepsy-guardian-angels...ium_bromide.htm Please keep us posted on how she is doing.
  4. Laura, I am sorry that may be what is happening with your dog but it is always good to know what you are dealing with. My Jaff had the cowering type at first where he would duck his head while looking at the ceiling with a very concerned look in his eyes. It is funny how people try and rationalize a behavior that you know is simply not right. Once he started having Grand Mal seizures we knew that the cowering was focals and/or psychomotors. Once after a really bad cluster seizure Jaff spent the night sleeping and then running blindly from a dead sleep. He ran straight into the sliding glass door once. He tried to climb straight up a wall in the closet and he almost leapt over our balcony from the bedroom to the downstairs. My husband tackled him just before he got a front paw over the railing. It was a total nightmare. I am still very involved with the Canine Epilepsy Guardian Angels website that was my lifeline throughout his illness. Please check out the link below and you can read about Hypothyroidism and the connection btw it and seizures. Jaff did stop having the focals once he was on Soloxine for Hypothyroidism. http://www.canine-epilepsy-guardian-angels.com/site_map.htm Good Luck and please don't hesitate to ask me any questions. If I don't respond through the boards you can email me at osci@aol.com
  5. Hi Laura, I hate to say this but it really sounds like seizures to me. Psychomotor seizures to be exact. My epi had them and they are not fun. I am not on the Boards much lately due to a busy work schedule but if you want anymore info you can email me directly at osci@aol.com. Tina DeAngelo
  6. Hey Becca, No, I got this ram from PA. If you are talking about the sheep I took home when I bought his old beat up horse trailer a.k.a The Mutton Express, they were wethers. This guy was just a year old in February. Easy keeper. If you are interested I could bring him to Debbies, looks like the clinic is on. Tina
  7. Hi All, I live in NJ and have a few black & white Katahdin ram lambs for sale as well as their daddy who is a real nice guy. If you want more information or photos please email me at osci@aol.com. Thanks! Tina DeAngelo Double O Farm Katahdin Sheep & Too Many Border Collies
  8. Both my pups have had some diarrhea and over the weekend one got pretty bad and did have blood in the stool. I took fecals for both over on Monday. The worst pup showed negative for all parasites and the other showed positive for both rounds and coccidia. Of course I am sure they both have both and are treating as such. I have sheep so coccidia isn't a stretch. The worst of the two probably just didn't shed any eggs in that sample. If you are still concerned you may want to run a 2nd fecal. I also think by the time I took that pups sample in he had expelled everything possible and the blood was from an irritation inside. The bright red blood is better than seeing dark, older blood which is usually more serious. Good Luck and keep us posted. Tina
  9. I am involved with a canine epilepsy group and we always suggest a homemade diet for the epis. Click on the link below and about half way down the page on the left is the Nutrition section. There are a few diets and a section on supplements. These diets have been well researched as our founder is a doctor in metabolic nutrition. Many of our dogs have been on them and do very well. One caution is that they usually have fewer calories and fat than kibble so you need to feed more, sometimes up to 50% more. I can tell you that my dogs love the taste and smell of the home cooking. http://www.canine-epilepsy-guardian-angels.com/site_map.htm Tina DeAngelo
  10. Do you have tick bourne diseases in Wyoming? Almost sounds like symptoms of Lymes disease. We have it terrible in the northeast. Sometimes the dogs joints hurt really bad and they just whine and really don't like to be touched at all. Just a suggestion. Tina
  11. Hi Shawna, Just read your post from yesterday right now. How old is Devin? The stroke like thing your vet was referring to is probably Geriatric Vestibular Disorder. It mimics a stroke and does resolve itself eventually but it is usually in older dogs. The urinary part isn't typical of it though except maybe they would lose control while having an episode of it. My Joe dog seems to be drinking and peeing more and it is worrying the heck out of me. I need to take him in soon for a urinalysis. Keep us posted. Tina
  12. Hi Everybody, We have had a cancellation for the Jack Knox clinic this coming weekend. If anyone is interested please email me directly at osci@aol.com. I don't have a lot of time to review the Boards lately so a direct email is best! Thanks Tina
  13. Hi Rebecca, We'd love to have you come by. No charge for spectators! Hope to see you soon. Tina
  14. Yes, definitely. We will not charge for people that want to come watch. We'd be happy to have you.
