Hey! You up there! Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Buster, the Bad Office Dog. You heard that right, I said Bad. I figured since I’m in the office with Joette all the time anyway, I may as well make myself useful and start earning my keep. Plus, why should Joette be the only one who gets a blog? I have some great stories, too! (more…)
It’s me, Buster.
I know it’s been a while since my last post, but I haven’t been able to use Joette’s computer without her noticing what I’m up to. (more…)
Buster, the bad office dog, was running in the fields by our pond a few months ago, when he apparently stepped into a hole or a depression in the ground. He let out a yelp and came limping back to us. He refused to put any weight on his back leg while yelping. Our poor dog was obviously in severe pain.
Now, sometimes a dog will limp for a bit but gradually start using the leg when the initial shock wears off. Not Buster. He was not about to put any weight on that leg for any reason.
As usual, I gave him a few doses of Arnica 200 for the initial pain and trauma, about 3 times per day for a few days.
But by the end of the week, the leg was no better. Buster was not putting any weight on it, and he would nip if anyone touched his hock. Fortunately, we have a holistic vet friend who lives just minutes from us and who is an excellent diagnostician. She said Buster had a torn meniscus. (more…)
Meet Buster, the bad office dog. He’s my dog and he stays with the staff and me all day in our office. Sometimes he’s good, but sometimes he lives up to his moniker.
Every August he becomes more menacing than usual. Needy, whiny, his eyes inflamed, droopy and watery, especially after a bowl of raw milk, which is part of his diet all year. This is when he goes into a scratching frenzy, and he takes on an odor that is instantly noticeable on walking past him. Whoa Buster, that’s awful!
And each year I treat him with Sulphur 200C, one dose every other day for about a week, then repeat it two weeks later. It always clears up his odor and behavior within the second week of treatment, and then he’s a more acceptable member of the office team. His eyes and skin clear up as well.
