Vaccinating a Puppy

February 24, 20180 found this helpful

You definitely need a rabies vaccine. Im pretty sure he needs tetanus as well. Any vet will tell you what shots the dog needs.

Normally there is a set of 4 vaccinations a puppy gets. I'm not sure the exact name of them. I just know if you live in the US your dog has to have a rabies shot. Then there is the yearly vaccination, which he get 2 of them. One is given first and the second one is given 4 weeks later. This protects him for a year. Then after this they are given once a year. I think the first one they gave my puppy was for Parvo at 6 weeks old. Then he had his yearly one 2 weeks later, 2 weeks after this he had his second Parvo and 2 weeks after that his yearly.

Troubleshooting an Electrical Circuit

February 24, 20180 found this helpful

Sparking is very dangerous. You could have a fire. I would call an electrician. If you try to fix it yourself and have a fire, insurance wont pay if they see it was done incorrectly.

February 23, 20180 found this helpful

I'm so sorry to say this, but that is a hazard and very dangerous. You really need an upgraded circuit breaker boxes with decent fuses in this.

On the other hand, if you have not secured the wires in the new curcit this will cause it to not work. If there is an issue with the electric wiring running through the home, then this can also cause your problem. If the one of the wires was sparking, it sounds like you have a damaged cable somewhere in the wall. Your electric cabling looks old and should be replaced. The protective coating on the cable can get old and damaged from the heat in the wall. I might suggest calling an expert to come in and assess the problem for you.

Dog Is Nauseous and Not Pooping

February 23, 20180 found this helpful

What it more than likely was is the dog had eaten some grass or some sort of plant leaves. My dogs do this all the time and they are always throwing up the leaves. At first this really bothered me, but now I know they love to go in the yard and eat the plant leaves. I don't grow any dangerous plants in my yard because of the animals. Just keep an eye on the dog and see if you catch him trying to eat some grass or leaves during his walk.

It sounds to me like he has a blockage, like he ate something and it won't come out the other end. The "foam" is probably a breakdown of whatever it is he ate. There is really nothing you can do except get him to a vet to see what is in his stomach, and the sooner, the better. A blockage can kill a dog. It's the vomiting that gives it away.

Call the vet as soon as possible. The foaming may mean he ate something poisonous.

Tips For Growing Moss on Rocks

February 23, 20181 found this helpful

i have heard of doing it using milk that is either spoiled or about to clabber/spoil, i won't use buttermilk since I know bakers that don't care to buy buttermilk will add vinegar to actual milk to make it they give it a few hours after adding it at room temp, & my mother used to make my Grandmother her Butter Milk like that I don't know the ratios of vinegar to Milk but I don't think its much Vinegar to the Milk, do a search for that but that vinegar in the Milk will throw the PH up way to high for anything to grow and thrive, also many years ago I saw an episode of some Gardening/Landscaping Show, or its possible it was Martha Stewart Show I am unsure which TV show it was where whoever it was used plain Whole Milk that was going off, it wasn't quite spoiled but they got it from a grocer friend & they did say it would be Rank in a few hours at most, the one who tasted it since it didn't smell said it had that going off quality to it being rather sour but no clotting had began, anyway a I did it with that since i'm Divorced a gallon of milk lasts me a very long time & I had between 24 & 32 ounces of milk According to my Blenders gauge & It was 5 days past expiring, I bought it at Albertersons Grocery Store since their milk tends to be tasting very good 4 days after the best by date always for me, I used that with a 1/2 cup of sugar since I have seen many suggesting that sugar helps, & plants love sugar, [Give your plants a spraying of Coke around the soil & on the leaves with a drop or 4 of dish soap they will thrive using a hose connected lawn sprayer to cut that mixture to its lowest setting,] anyway I blended it until the sugar dissolved completely then I added my Moss to that Mixture & filled my blender the rest the way with water & since the Blender has a serving spout I went ahead & wrote "Fuck U" with it behind my apartment with the first mix, and poured it on top of a chunk of soil by the Rain Gutter's Downspout, the Reason for cursing is because what I plant out there the Neighbors Steal, & the apartments Weed Wack, I got 2 managers back to not weed wack it, & planter lots of flowers they got 18 inches tall covered with unopened blossoms & that next Morning every i guess Woman in the Complex had a pot of Flowers but I didn't get to see any of them Bloomed, & the asses dug them out & ripped them out, they lowered that soil by 4 inches Stealing the Flowers I had Cared for, next I planted onion sets & potatoes, all together they were in the ground about 75 days & all were dug up by the thieving scum here but neither were ripe, they were all 90 days to harvest plantings, anyway I am now trying Moss simply because I don't think they will steal it, but who knows & the words are for the ones who have stolen all I have planted in the past, also I had sprayed all the Onions & Potatoes the Morning before with a Grub killing spray so hopefully that theft made them very ill, but I don't think that Bacillus T. stuff will harm you since it is an organic treatment according to the label. I will return in a few months & add pictures if it is still there, I know my unit is shady enough since all my sun loving plants died from lack of sun on my patio. :-)

Toddler Cries Excessively

February 23, 20180 found this helpful

Without alarming you, because none of us on here are doctors but I will tell you that I went through something very similar to what you are going through, and it ended up being that my daughter was ADHD, not diagnosed. It took forever for them to diagnose her, but in the meantime, she cried, she was bored stiff, she threw tantrums, it was a mess. And they do that because they truly don't know what to do with themselves, it is sheer frustration. When it got to be horribly noticeable is when she started kindergarten, and one time they had my husband and I go watch her from a two way mirror, and when all the kids were around a table coloring, she was disrupting the entire class, she would throw crayons, put her head down, color for two minutes and then start the behaviors all over again. They can't concentrate and they truly know there is a problem but don't know what to do about it. Also, she acted just like your daughter in that any type of punishment or praise meant absolutely nothing, she was just kind of blank. Back then, all they had was Ritalin, but when she did take it, believe me, it was like night and day!! She studied, was quiet, was not disruptive, could think clearly. The problem is that the medicine didn't really agree with her, but there is SO MUCH OUT THERE NOW. I truly would take her to a doctor to discuss all of this you are telling us, I don't think it's anything earth shattering, but it's something that needs to be addressed before it really becomes a problem. Before they figured out what was wrong with my daughter, she flunked KINDERGARTEN! Go figure. Good luck to you.
