Re: >>>>Sustainable Living PLUS Canning and Dehydrating Food<<<<
Geez I feel like I havent been on in forever. I have been having internet problems for the past week and its driving me nuts.

I am glad everyone is being so kind to all the animals and also sprouting up on the board again! Sorry to hear you have felt so crappy SO.

We are trying to find a lady friend for pinky the pig just havent had a free weekend to do it yet and this weekend isnt lookin good either.

All my neighbors love him and they have nicknamed him Arnold. He walks along the fence when they walk by or ride the horses and all the horses like pinky too.

He is craving attention now, so he really needs a companion. Ever since we let him roam free in the pasture there is no smell, he doesnt crap in the pen anymore, so it stays clean. He still thinks toes are a snack and wearing closed toe shoes is an absolute must. I swear the damn pig smiles and its the funniest thing.

Its flava by the way, I am going to get off again and try to have my dad walk me thru this damn internet thing.

Anyone have any good ideas for treating vertigo? I have been taking dramamine but it makes me sleepy. The doc said it should get better over the next few weeks but I really need to get back to work full time.

Re: >>>>Sustainable Living PLUS Canning and Dehydrating Food<<<<
Good Morning everyone. I finally got my internet explorer working right again. It was sure frustrating to be going helter skelter instead of where you were trying to go.

My dad told me how to fix it and it worked so no more clicking on one thing and being redirected to some random sites!!

I just wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving to everyone since I know how busy we all get between cooking and family and friends. I will be doing all my pies and cranberry sauce today to get those out of the way.

I hope you all have a great time whatever it is you are doing and TB, I hope you are not cooking for an army again this year like you did last year.

Nines, next post is for you.

Re: >>>>Sustainable Living PLUS Canning and Dehydrating Food<<<<
I have questions and I cant think of a better person to ask since you are my Dr. Doolittle!

So... Jake the dog, with diabetes, was doing ok but still peeing all over, so when we took him back for the blood curve at the vet they wanted to up the insulin again. We did from 1 to 1.5. After the injection he got super lethargic for about 2 hours and than vomited all the dinner he had eaten and was lethargic again.

The next morning he wouldnt eat his food, called the vet and they said he did need the extra .5 to do it again.

Well... I didnt do it this morning. In addition, he is on hills Rx diet W/D.

So.... me knowing just enough to be dangerous, says to the vet that stuff is loaded with carbs and carbs are the big no-no, so why not add some boiled chicken to it so that he is getting less carbs and more protein??? So I had made that up and added green beans. Cooked it all and threw it thru the food processor, so I now have home made canned style dog food, which he ate and loved this morning instead of sniffing and not eating.

Anyway... this is the specialty vet that my vet sent me to and she said that hi carb is what they want for diabetic dogs??? Doesnt make sense to me and I am not changing it the day before a holiday weekend!

So... this morning instead of his pee being really yellow and smelly, it was almost clear and no smell, and I personally feel like we are on the right path. I feel like I should go with my gut on this one.

The question is, with your animal and holistic background, what is your opinion? If anyone else has experience with this, feel free to chime in.

 Quoting: MamaHasAwakened


Flav, I have to agree with Mama. I'm a type 2, just not a 4 legged variety!LOL I'll just throw out my 2 cents worth. High carbs makes NO sense. I have to watch mine really carefully. I can't see why it would be the opposite for animals. What you are feeding Jake (the homemade stuff) isn't going to hurt him and it sounds like he's responding well to it. Watch the fat content in the meat you give him and some carbs are important, too. They just need to be slow metabolizing like brown rice, oatmeal,maybe a little baked/boiled potato mixed with the rest. Don't give him corn, peas, and watch out for too many carrots. They are all high carb veggies.

It gets boring eating the same veg all the time, it'll be worse for the dog. He can't eat brocolli or stuff like that. Pretty much green or wax beans, I would think. Save him some turkey, too.

Speaking of turkey, NO I am NOT cooking this year. We're going to Cracker Barrel this year. Small group this year and no one to eat the left overs. Plus, I think Hubs and I are catching the crud that's going around. Yick!

Everyone, I hope you all have a wonderful day tomorrow!

 Quoting: flavapor

Oh wow, Flav. I'm honored you asked me but am not qualified. I'll give a personal opinion, but not medical advice.

I'd want to first understand the vet's reasoning on feeding high carbohydrate meals. Am guessing it is to keep the blood sugar more stable through the day and avoid spikes.

Simple carbs (corn syrup, propylene glycol)cause rapid glucose spikes, but complex carbs (starches) are digested more slowly so there aren't the quick spikes.

Carbs are digested faster than protein and have the most effect of the insulin needs.

That said, the vet might feel it's important to have a certain amount of carbs to coincide with the injected insulin, depending on when the insulin peaks.

The studies (which have been few) on diet and treatment of diabetes in dogs has been controversial at best. What works for one often won't work for another.

It would be my opinion that if he's not having wide glucose swings, what you're doing would be better. It would seem that it would be more important to make sure the food is given at the same time in the same amounts and keeping him stable through the day.

If he drops, adding a mid day treat might stabilize him. Dehydrated chicken, jerky, etc. might encourage him to eat when moist food won't.

I'd want to keep a log of exactly what time he eats, what food he eats, how much he eats, and how his levels react to it. That gives you a lot of variables to work with and by adding something, or taking away something, you might just hit on the right combination.

Like I said, I can't give medical advice, and you know that, but what you're doing sounds like it's working. A lot of it is just trial and error and you're with him all the time and can see how he's acting, reacting.

It's really hard to comment without knowing the Vet's logic, but without knowing, your method sounds a whole lot better and it sounds like you're getting the best results. I think your intuition at this point would be the most valuable to Jake.

I sure do wish you luck. The frustration, time, and pain of seeing him when he's not feeling well has to be overwhelming.

Good for you TB. So glad to hear you'll have a relaxing day. Hope you don't get the crud going around. If you are, when you're at CB, order some soup to take home with you.

Hey, Nine's! I didn't tell the whole truth about cooking!LOL I bought a turkey last night, thinking I would put it in the chest freezer. Well, I haven't been in there for about 5 months and forgot I filled it this summer! SOOO, no room for the turkey, at least not whole. I'm thawing him and I'll cook it up, with a little dressing. We'll have a little bit of "left-overs" and I'll put the sliced turkey in the freezer. It'll fit that way. Since youngest moved out, we haven't cooked much. It was hard not to pick one up at $.57 a lb.

 Quoting: Texan Buckeye


That sounds great, TB, as long as you feel up to cooking it. Hope you get it done before you start feeling real bad. It will make some great soup and probably better than what you can get at a restaurant.

Sure do hear that on the turkey price. I got a lot this year. Some were dropped off to other people, and 3 are in the freezer for dog food. Mine came from an Amish/Mennonite family that free ranges them. But, if things get bad, Pupster and Little Dog will have to share their canned grocery store turkey with me. 8)

Hmmm. What I'm doing this year. Does feeling selfish and needing to be alone count? HAHA.

Long story short, my son will be home with some friends.

One very nice person has kind of thrown a glitch into things. He kind of invited himself, and for many reasons, not to be listed, I don't want him to come, but don't want him to know others came when I told him I won't be having people here, but will deliver something.

Sooo, since my son and his friends are good sports, they'll be my delivery people. HAHA. They'll also amuse themselves and I won't have to stay up til 2 in the morning wishing everyone would go home.

Have most of the goodies done. Sugar cookies, p. butter, choc. chip, raisin oatmeal, buckeyes, pumpkin bars, etc. 8)

Today I'll do fruit salad, cheesecake, bread pudding, dinner rolls, and all the things that need to be made ahead.

So, for now, that's the plan.....but we all know how plans go, don't we? LOL.

We sure do!LOL I just haven't gotten back up to par after taking care of the folks. Everything has been super stressful since I got back home, everything seems to be a crisis. (I give up on spelling today. Sorry everyone!)

I'm just going to throw Tom in the oven and roast him. No big deal. I make my gram's bread dressing and that's easy. I still don't like cornbread stuffing very much. I'm super cleaning the house, finally, but the kids left SO much crap when they moved out! I can only do a little at a time, too. Add to that, all the times hubs works overnights and sleeps during the day...well, it's slow going anyway. I was trying to get a couple of my friends kids to come and help (with pay), but they weren't interested. My latest cheat is to put the cart on the garden tractor and load the stuff for the dumpster in the cart. The cotton dust in the air makes it too hard to be outside for very long, so I can't make a lot of trips to the dumpster.

I'm at the stage of cleaning where it looks worse than when I started!LOL You know when you start sorting things out and making NEW piles of junk to throw out!?! That's where I'm at right now. I need to buy some more plastic totes for the stuff I'm saving for the kids. They say they don't want it, but I know from experience, they will later!LOL

Thank you for the input everyone. We have been feeding him the same time every day twice, and the same thing. Yesterday was the first change so hes just getting more protein now but not just protein.

I dont get the carb thing for dogs either TB. As for your turkey, my favorite way to do turkey, and it turns out the best I have ever had is to put it in the oven covered just before you go to bed on 250 and turn it off in the morning. The house smells great and the turkey is perfect and fall off the bone juicy. You can still carve it too, and the best part is it still makes that delicious skin that I LOVE to eat.

That is the perfect way considering your not feeling well.

Nines, I hope your houseful is fun, its always nice to see the kids and like you said, they can entertain each other. I love watching my kids with their friends, gives insight on what kind of person they are when they arent around you.

So.... what about the girl friend? Is she still in the picture?

HAHA Flav. I duzzint want them doing dishes. I want them to eat and go to the big ol playfield and have fun with their bang bang toys, then come back and have dessert. Meanwhile, Pupster and I will go for a walk. Then a nap. 8)

No prob with the girlfriend, Flav. I can deal with whatever makes him happy. I kind of miss her in a sociopathic way. LOL.

She made major blunders and unfortunately, some were on his computer. What she claims was just having fun, playing around and not serious to her, was the last straw for him. Sad situation.

Re: >>>>Sustainable Living PLUS Canning and Dehydrating Food<<<<
We sure do!LOL I just haven't gotten back up to par after taking care of the folks. Everything has been super stressful since I got back home, everything seems to be a crisis. (I give up on spelling today. Sorry everyone!)

I'm just going to throw Tom in the oven and roast him. No big deal. I make my gram's bread dressing and that's easy. I still don't like cornbread stuffing very much. I'm super cleaning the house, finally, but the kids left SO much crap when they moved out! I can only do a little at a time, too. Add to that, all the times hubs works overnights and sleeps during the day...well, it's slow going anyway. I was trying to get a couple of my friends kids to come and help (with pay), but they weren't interested. My latest cheat is to put the cart on the garden tractor and load the stuff for the dumpster in the cart. The cotton dust in the air makes it too hard to be outside for very long, so I can't make a lot of trips to the dumpster.

I'm at the stage of cleaning where it looks worse than when I started!LOL You know when you start sorting things out and making NEW piles of junk to throw out!?! That's where I'm at right now. I need to buy some more plastic totes for the stuff I'm saving for the kids. They say they don't want it, but I know from experience, they will later!LOL

I know, TB. That was too much for you for too long, especially not even being able to rest well at night. It's a wonder you aren't in a lot worse shape.

Be really careful about going outside when the cotton is doing it's thing. You don't want to end up in the Emergency Room gasping for air.

The cleaning will wait. Take your time and get your rest. Then you won't be coming down with diseases. 8) Have a great, relaxing day....after you cook your bird, and go out to eat, and find a space to put the bird, and put the bird away, and ........8)

I just wanted to pop in and wish you all a happy Thanksgiving! Real doom...for the first time in too many years, I get to watch the parade. CBS's coverage is terrible! Too many interviews and not enough parade! LOL

It's a beautiful day here, it doesn't feel like Thanksgiving at all. Blue sky and the temps are supposed to hit 79! The high in the 50's tomorrow, typical West Texas!!

I hope you all had a wonderful day.headlessch

I know...it's creepy, but the only turkey in the smilies!LOLOLsorry

Hi all, having trouble with e-male and connecting with GLP. Hope you all have had a good Thanks Giving. I've been lurking on the site when I can. I have been sending energy as needed when I saw the need.
There are some bad things going to happen, I think. Be prepared to set up groups of people, with the same insight as to survive any catastrophe.
Blessings Drendwire
