  1. This person/persons doing this almost certainly have some type of mental health issues that one would have to to make innocent creatures suffer such an awful death. Is it possible that this person is attempting to solve a problem (in their own sick way) that they feel the local government is either incapable of solving or unwilling to address? That they're sick and tired of all the stray dogs running loose? Certainly not going about it the right way, but is it conceivable that the poison was meant for the strays and not the dogs of the responsible and caring owners? Not that any of them deserve to die this way. Even the most ferocious dogs are usually euthanized humanely.
  2. Do you automatically get 6 months when entering Mexico via air or land?
  3. Does anyone have any idea of what a month's supply of each of these drugs would cost? Again, they are Lisinopril 20mgs., Angiotrofin Retard (Diltiazem) 240 mgs. and Hydroclorothiazide 25 mgs. All BP meds, BTW. Thank you.
  4. I would not recommend Pharmacy express. Some prices are better some are no.  I have had been given 2 wrong prescriptions . The second time I did not look it up because it was suppose to be a refill. It was for a stomach problem and instead I got a heart medication. I am already taking one. 

    I was getting a little hypotensive.  A friend of mine ended up in the hospital becuse of the wrong medication.

  5. What type of noise do tazers make that is so intimidating to dogs?
  6. Have tried the online search for Farmacia Guadalajara, Similares, and Walmart with few results. Am looking for Lisinopril 20 mg., Diltiazem 240mg. (Angiotrofin Retard in Mexico) and Hydrochlorothyazide ( a diuretic) 12.5 mgs. These are all blood pressure meds BTW. Does anyone reading this take any of these or know where these can be purchased? Thank you.
  7. I use a free VPN called Windscribe. 256 bit military grade encryption and they say they don't maintain lists of your activity. Before that, I used Cyber Ghost Free. Same thing with more servers but a bit of a PITA to use vs. Windscribe. Not 100% either have servers in Mexico but both are free with military- grade encryption and no lists so worth a try. Buena suerte.
  8. Interesting answers, thank you. BTW, growth hormones are not desirable in food. A lot of the milk sold in the US contains growth hormones.
  9. Is that from the USDA website? In any event best to buy organically produced produce whenever available.
  10. I used to eat strawberries almost every day whilst living there as they were cheap and absolutley delicious. I'm wondering if in so doing I've unknowingly ingested significant amounts of pesticides. A case of closing the barn door after the horse has already left, I know. As I recall at the time they were not very big and were irregularly shaped.......
  11. NOB they use a LOT of different pesticides on strawberries. They recommend eating only the organic ones as they're the worst fruit for pesticide contamination. Does anyone know if the locally produced strawberries are heavily sprayed like the ones grown in the US?
  12. This is a somewhat nebulous topic IMO. You have Mexican insurance and you get into an accident whilst driving. Not sure if its yours or the other driver's fault. Let's say that there appear to be injured motorists in the other vehicle. Unsure of the extent of the injuries. I know the proper course of action NOB. What is the correct course of action Lakeside (or Mexico for that matter)? Once again, you DO have valid Mexican insurance coverage.
  13. When I last lived there we got 10.5 pesos to the USD. I'm sure prices on virtually everything have increased considerably since then, but am curious to know just how everyday life has changed with such a good conversion rate.
  14. Are there IMSS clinics in Chapala and Jocotepec and an IMSS hospital in Guad? I read where they sometimes give poor service to the non- Mexicans. Any truth to this?
