HOMER'S HOME CARE
Hey Hounders, As the patriach of the clan, I have probably had more than my fair share of visits to vets throughout my life. Heck, our vet Doc Witter, from Confederate ridge Animal Hospital in Fredericksburg, VA, and I our actuall BFFs. So I have decided that I should share my (our) medical wisdom and experiences with y'all. With us eleven dogs and the fours cats all living here, Lord knows we make plenty of trips to CRAH. But sometimes, weekend in particular, we rely on some help from mom or dad here at home to tide us over 'til we go get up to the big city. So I've gathered some information that y'all might find useful around the house.
Our legal representative, Shiloh, told me that I had to include the below disclaimer before I did anything else, otherwise she'd beat me up. So I have included the below disclaimer to preclude getting beat up by Shiloh. When she decided to become a lawyer we should have changed her name to Sue.
Disclaimer: Advice given in the Home Care series of articles is not meant to replace veterinary care. When your pet has a problem, it is always best to see your veterinarian as soon as possible. But in some cases, it is not always possible to seek veterinary care. You could be traveling, it could be after hours and there are no 24-hour clinics near you, or maybe you simply can't afford it. Whatever the reason, when your pet has a problem, you need answers. Most vets will not give you any information over the phone – they will tell you to bring your pet in for an office visit. So, when these difficult situations arise, many pet owners don't know what to do – and they end up doing the wrong thing because they don't have sound veterinary advice. When your pet has a problem and you can't see your vet, the information in this series of articles can help guide you so that you will not inadvertently cause harm to your pet. However, this information is not a replacement for veterinary care.
