Don't seem to either have comprehension skills, or good memories. I never advocated putting a dog's head in water, only repeated what was in a book....why can't you all understand that? I was also careful to say I wouldn't do it, that it was just information passed on in a book.Yet you all continue to say that I do it, that my dogs are afraid of me and that's funny....if you saw and knew me you would know that no one fears me! I'm pretty harmless and easy going. And as for the motor oil, well that's an old country remedy that unfotunately does work and I haven't seen it cause any adverse reactions, but I DON'T use it cause I found that there's a backdoor way to get ahold of medicines that traditionally need a vet's prescription. If people had some common sense, this forum wouldn't be so bad. and Pinky, You deserved what you got.
WOW, don't know what's going on here.... but... let's just put what ever it was behind us... and move on... Years ago they used old remedies..due to word of mouth and no knowledge of the possible bad side effects.... today with modern science.. and the internet for education we have so many other options! My husband told me that his mom once shaved his head and rubbed kerosine all over it... due to comeing home from school with head lice... Old fashion remedy... thank god she didn't smoke and light a match!! LOL True it worked...killed any lice or eggs left... now if he had gotten cancer or a brain problem a few months or years later, she would never have clicked it being due to this (the chemicals absorbing through the scalp into the brain) So lets all just be thankful we have more options in todays world!!!
schoolbus gal, if you want to prove to everybody that your dogs aren't scared of you, then video tape you and your dogs together, because somebody on here can probally detect q's that mean the doggy are happy around u or scared or shy! I am not siding any body, and don't want to get involve quit frankly!
Thanks pope1982... for the link. I now just can't say... WOW.. I have to ask this question....Don't they still give school bus drivers psych tests? Unfortunately, I know that's not part of the liscening requirements for CDL drivers. Also please correct me, but, I thought to be senior member you had to have more experience or class.. I guess from what I read ... it's probably from just being a member for a long time. (If that's so... it's a shame....) I give you all credit for sticking to your guns and calling an ACE an ACE!
“And as for the motor oil, well that's an old country remedy that unfortunately does work and I haven't seen it cause any adverse reactions, but I DON'T use it cause I found that there's a backdoor way to get ahold of medicines that traditionally need a vet's prescription.”
Excuse me, does this statement mean that she WOULD use used motor oil to cure mange if the backdoor way to get ‘ahold’ of prescription medications were to close? No one in his/her right mind would do such a thing.
Good lord SBG, quit being a whiney tit. You come here giving out assinine advice and then whine about the reactions to your posts. We can only hope that no one actually tries any of your suggestions. Especially the ones that are new pet owners and come here seeking advice.
There are some home remedies that work great, but nothing should be used on your pet, without the advise of a veterinarian. That includes any remedies that require the use of a shovel or a funnel.........
If you are a dog and your owner suggests that you wear a sweater, suggest that he wear a tail.
Wow...someone doesn't know when to shut up!!! SBG or whoever you are why don't you hush and leave! No one likes you, nor do we want or even NEED your advice. All you do is stir up trouble and cause arguments. You post information about pets that others could take as serious and try them. And then what, the result could be fatal all because you have no clue what you're talking about! Don't you know that since we can't actually hear the tone/inflection in your voice we have no idea if your kidding or serious? You're risking the lives of innocent pets by even supplying that information on here..be it from you or from a book! It's obviously bad info so why post it? COMMON SENSE!!! Do you even have any pets? Sounds like you get them just to experiment these "old fashioned" home rememdies on them so you can come here and post how they are NOT a good thing to do!! I would hope to God you don't do that. I hope you don't have pets at all!!!!!!!!!!!
Why add fuel to her fire and which might be giving her some sort of satisfaction. Let's not give her any more comments to read which is giving her attention. I might be wrong...but I think she enjoys this..So atleats I won't be replying and fueling her fire anylonger on this string. If I could delete or block her string or advice I would.. ha ha
