"If it helps at all, I did a lot of research regarding VSL3 and Visbiome last year before the lawsuit went to trial. I was just looking to see if I could find a product that was a little less expensive than VSL3 for my Bob. :-) I compared the…"
"That's what I have to look into, Nancy. I have to find info from an independent source telling me that Visbiome is the same as VSL#3. OR...I have to look at a package of Visbiome and compare it to the info on the VSL#3 bottle I still have."
"My brain hurts reading this confusing stuff. I read the first letter way back when but the other articles are new to me......
So ------what product do we ask for at CVS et al? I still have some VSL#3 so don't currently have a…"
"I would be so upset about this if JD were still with me. As it is, now I'm going to have to find accurate information on this Visbiome that doesn;t come from either of these warring former partners. :( "
"Thank you, I have Amazon prime so usually get things next day but your right it's always good to have on hand especially when we are traveling and away from home. The dogs first aid box is twice the size of ours. lol "
"I would re-order it, just to be on the safe side. I don't think it has an expiration date, and even if it does, with 3 dogs, you're bound to use them before they expire. Better safe than sorry. If she's been off it for several…"

Boomer and Mariner are biological brothers. Mariner fractured his skull @ 7 weeks old, causing blindness and a seizure disorder. As a puppy he had to relearn everything, walking, eating, peeing, etc. Mariner has gradually regained much of his eyesight. He has not had a seizure in over 4 years (as of 12/25/14), since his medication was changed to potassium bromide
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
Welcome to the Sheepadoodle group. I have not been around recently, but we have just about finished our second year in Oregon. MonaChica is doing great and here is a recent photo of her. Today we went walking at Taylor Creek (one of our favorite bike ride and dog walk areas) to look at the fire damage. It is amazing. But, spring is coming in the not too distant future.undefined
Thanks for the friend request! Toby was diagnosed with oral melanoma in March 2015. He began receiving ONCEPT vaccines in April and so far, the cancer hasn't spread to his lymph nodes or lungs. I believe that Toby received 4 vaccines and then booster shots. Beginning April of this year, he will only need booster shots every 6 months. So far, ONCEPT has cost us over $10,000. We have pet insurance, so they pay about 60% of the total cost. Our oncologist also wanted Toby to take chemotherapy medication, but it was too expensive for us. How is Boomer doing?
Thank you for tying the friend request, and for tying the Tail Injury posts together.
I'm glad to have a community of Doodle Lovers to share the joy and sometimes pain of loving and living with these wonderful creatures.
Yes, beef tendons and beef tracheas are good use of animal by-products and I like that idea. Just got another package of bully sticks for my dogs and they get 20 minutes a day (takes them three days) to chew them. Outside only! Then I put them in a zip-lock bag and store until the next day. I also don't use rawhide because I could see problems with that but my vet said she has never taken a rawhide out of a dog's stomach and she has surgically removed all kinds of things. Agrees that bullysticks are a good use of animal byproducts.
