Re: Furparents: Hot Spots?

gold bond powder. it is what my vet said to do for murry and it always worked. use the powder and the cone when you are not there, should be over in a week. with murry it was between the pads of his paws, so i would fill a baby sock with powder, put it on him and secure it with blue tape. magic.

If dark green is the best, and dark red is the worst, then what of the places devoid of color, like Outer Mongolia? Perhaps those places are just bad to be in regardless of sexuality.?

Mrs VL passed today after 5 days in hospice. The cancer had metastasized to her brain. She fell a few weeks ago on the sidewalk and hit her head. There was a large chronic subdural hematoma on the left hemisphere.
