may 29 2016

can someone  "out there" tell me......  if the pet tabs have 1500 units of vitiamn A ( along witha bunch of other stuff)is that the same as the one a day  people vitamin pill ...?   problem being i seem to have lost -- or finished ---my  bottle of vitamins--don't send me any... i will get some today--- but.. i have all these pettabs.... and i wonder if there is a difference???  it says it is for active and older dogs..  some days i feel like one or the other..  what stopped me is  liver is not my favorite flavor... 
when i looked it up online, i noticed the  people vitamins that bragged about feeling better had caffene in them !!  apparently dogs don't need caffene.
 my latest project is to flush  all outdated pills---  i don't know what our septic tank is thinking on this diet of odd pills... i better feed it with some ridex  which is the "feelgood" stuff for septic systems
i do know that is something ADI went thru ( i was prepared, i knew it was coming) just looking at pill bottles and dates- since many of teh antibiotics and wormers are bought in bulk... i just ordered $1100 of  allwormer and doxycycline from pets megastore in australia--
shipping is free... i just checked latest numbers....doxy 50 mg 100 pills  australia  $44  here fostersmith $189-- and now their advantix got reducedis cheaper too $44 vs $64 for 6 vials... it is hard to compar wormers because the allwormer is not sold here.( that i know of)

now do you want to talk about med insurance / drug companies and canada???? license to steal???
*****
the other thing i am aware of--- and several cp's have called me on...--- is pill bottles on my desk, where dogs could reach them-- that would be particularly bad  if they were liver flavored deramax ( aspriny kind of stuff)
... the reason pill bottles are on my desk... and usually upside down... is they are empty.... to remind me to get more- so aside from swallowing the plastic bottle, it should not pose a poison problem.
but---then there is the counter ( over the dishwasher  for those of you watching)-- that is our medicine area-- ad i do n=have a metal box to keep pills locked away from snoopy noses...  but that whole thing needs attention...  object being to keep on that counter only what is currently needed  and  store teh 500 size bottles away in  a really locked "tool chest"..it is an active project....
our medication chart  today lists  antibiotics to  all 6  spay and neuters done last weeks,  and  then there is magnus with what seems to be a UTI,  and pilot's anti bump stuff for 2 matching strange bumps where i would have expected one post surgical bump...  baileys anti inflam /pain aspriny thing... the tums for all  and vitamins for most... it is a very active medicine program... run by grace  helped by meg... nether of whom are here this weekend -- so initialling the form is critical... 
************    
ADVERTISING-- I GOT ON MY TREADMILL  AND FIGURED I WOULD TRY AND TEAD WHILE ONE BUNCH OF ADS RAN-- I STARTED WHEN NEWS QUIT... AND STRUGGLED FOR 4 MINUTES OF ADSW...  THEN I RESTED WHILE 2 MINUTES OF NEWS AND MORE ADS STARTED TO COME ON !!! IS THAT A REAL RATIO ???? 4 to 2??
*****
maybe drugs cost more here becaus e of all the tv 
 ads they run which take so long because of all the adverese affects they have to list so they don't get sued????  i dunno...
***
 i am reminded of the veteran and his 140 pills a day.. i can totally see how it happens-- he goes to the VA  sore toe?  take pill A --makes you sleepy?, take  pill B, can't sleep?  pill C and .. no one collects A+B+C --->Z the capability is there  why is it not done.?
how many more musicians do we have to loose in elevators before we have a databank of drug combinations.
just don't light a cigarette next to some of these vets....

  5. DRUGS ARE CHEAPER IN CANADA DUE TO GOVERNMENT PRICE CONTROLS WHICH IS COMMON THROUGHOUT THE WORLD EXCEPT IN THE USA. THIS ALSO BENEFITS OUR PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENTS WHICH PAYS FOR MEDICATIONS FOR LOW INCOME FOLK. YOU ARE PROBABLY ON TO SOMETHING WITH THE ADVERTISING. DIRECT-TO-CONSUMER ADVERTISING ISN'T ALLOWED IN CANADA BUT THERE ARE LOOPHOLES, THEY CAN STATE THE NAME OF THE DRUG BUT NOT WHAT IT'S FOR. A LOT OF CHILDREN ASKING THEIR PARENTS WHAT VIAGRA IS FOR!
