Q: My German Shepherd cross “Bailey”... Jul 24 2014
...constantly barks and whines while we are eating a meal. This is because he wants us to give him some food. He is a good loving dog but his begging disturbs our family meal. Is there a fix for this problem?
A: There is a quick fix for this problem. Give “Bailey” a Buster Cube while you are dining. Pieces of food are released as he rolls it around. You will dine in peace as he plays with
his Buster Cube. These cubes are also used to reduce a pets boredom, destructive behaviors and separation anxiety when the owner is not home. The large cube is for “Bailey” and the mini cube is for smaller dogs.
Isoxsuprine is prescription medication for horses used in the treatment of navicular syndrome (navicular disease). Isoxsuprine hydrochloride causes the dilation (enlargement) of blood vessels to improve blood flow to the hoof. Isoxsuprine is in a class of drugs called vasodilators.
Isoxsuprine Tablets are given by mouth. Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you have difficulty giving the medication, contact your veterinarian. If you miss a dose, give it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to the regular schedule. Do not give 2 doses at once. This medication should only be given to the horse for whom it was prescribed.
Commonly prescribed doses are 500 mg per 1000 lbs twice daily. The dosage is then adjusted every 2 weeks depending on response. If sound, the horse is reduced to once daily and then weaned off over the next 45 days.
