I'm sure that skewed...

...sorry
Hi. I am really sorry about your daughter's dx.Don't forget to ask the endo about "sick day" management. I snickered when I read that your grocery store trip took long. Not because it is funny but because it brings back so many memories of EVERYTHING taking longer. Counting up the carbs, weighing food, calculating the insulin ... my poor boy would have to wait sooooo long to eat while I tried to figure things out. Then I would get paranoid that I made a mistake and do...
((((((((((Brandi))))))))))))) I'm so sorry. What a horrible story. I hope you find the closure you need and deserve.
A friend of mine is pregnant and she feels that her baby should get the Hep B vaccine because she read that 2000-4000 people die every year from Hep B and that it is highly infectious. I did not get the vax for my baby, but it was so long ago I forgot my stats and stuff. Can you help? This is her basis for her decision : "Hepatitis B is highly infectious.

Hmmm ... well I only bought a small bag because I wasn't sure if it would work out. So, next bag I need to check the protein content aiming for 22%, while keeping in mind serving size and actual consumption. phew...lol Angie, I think its great you feed your dogs RAW. I bet they are so healthy and beautiful. It is not practical for us right now, though I would love to be able to make some puppy food to mix with dry food. I have seen some recipes of pasta/meat combos. What...
I mentioned that she wasn't too keen on her food. I didn't know if it was a palate issue or nerves. This morning I put in a couple tbs of vanilla yogurt, and she has been eating it with more umph. I hope yogurt is okay for her, I couldn't think of anything else to put on there... Any suggestions for the food? Is yogurt alright? I don't want to make it seem like she's not eating, cause she is... But nowhere near the 4 cups a day they say a puppy her size should be...
