Re: CVB LAD Communication?

I haven't any clue who's in the right and who's in the wrong - not my journey. I know that I ABHOR the tone the vendor has taken and the private info shared. I...

Re: Doggie dust - rapid weight loss

that's great that the ultrasound was normal! And although Addison's is not great news- it is manageable and you'd have a diagnosis and plan for his improvement. Let us know how the test goes

Re: Doggie dust - rapid weight loss

Pinkjewel, sorry to hear you're going through something similar. I made a comment to the vet about going for the ultrasound so we can get answers and she quickly reminded me there are no guarantees!

Re: Doggie dust - rapid weight loss

I'm sorry your pup is going thru this. I can certainly relate- I've spent so much time at the Vet School Hospital near me the last few months trying to figure out what is wrong with my maltese. She's had ultrasounds (yes, multiple), swallowing studies, X-rays, endoscopy, and I'm sure a few more test...

Re: How bad are these cracks on the Paraiba Tourmaline?

the ring looks like it is made from PMC- so it was either heated in a kiln or torched to cure- then usually it is tumbled to bring out the shine. The "jeweler"(I say this lightly) should have known what would happen and no one in their right mind would have cracked it on purpose- so I'd r...

Re: Another paraiba thread...

In browsing this thread, I remembered that you already own some paraibas. Why the rush to get another if you are really indecisive? Okay, I understand the urge to jump while they are still somewhat affordable. I've kicked myself many times for passing/waiting but that is only until the another one ...

Re: Another paraiba thread...

Thank you, Acinom and Chrono for your input.

If I wanted melee in the outer row I believe I am limited to 1mm at most.

Sparklesluver- I think there is something to that and the thought that they are just going to keep getting higher and higher in price when found! Makes it a tough decision.

When it comes to this material you have to really decide if its worth it or not.
