  1. Correct, who here is desperate for a CPAP machine that does not otherwise have the means to get one.  No insurance etc.  

    Perfect working condition.  Honor system.  I am assuming this is for you, not to make money off of!!!!!

    Husband was upgraded to another united compliments of his insurance!

    What behavior are you trying to curb??  Biting itself, rubbing against things??  

    One of ours developed skin issues on her back...she'd rub against things to scratch it, made it bleed, etc.  

    We put a T-shirt on her....front legs thru the armholes.  She stopped rubbing against the wall, fireplace, etc. 

    Once it cleared up we stopped using the T-shirt.  

    I do not want him licking back paws while they heal, have spray solution on them.

    He was on an antibiotic, and then the rains came... triggering a yeast issue with paws.

    I am about to head NOB, and then I will switch him over to starch free raw feeding, and do a "Yeasty Beast Protocol" (from Adored Beast Apothecary online).

    The vet here gave a spray to use, and hopefully that will help him, if he can just leave the paws alone.

    He is sneaky... waits till we are not looking or are sleeping!

    I have had pretty good luck using a folded up bath towel and a band of fairly wide elastic. There are several YouTubes showing how. One dog decided it was a fashion statement and went around showing it off. The other dog was fine until a neighbor laughed at him. Then he rolled around until it came off and wouldn't wear it. Might be worth a try.

    Thanks for the idea, MtnMama!!! I will try that until the amazon one arrives.  Still open to a loaner lol... 


    Whatcha doin' wit that towel mom?  


  4. One of my dogs goes into a severe slump mentally when he has to wear the regular cone.  We actually have to take it off and keep watch on him instead.

    Even though we take it off for eating, his state of mind is so blah, that he will walk away from the food.   It's weird.  The down mood goes on for hours even if I don't put it back on.  Must feel like some sort of punishment. he sits there with his head up high and won't even lay down when it is on.

    If anyone had a loaner inflatable for a few days, that would be appreciated.  I would sure love a break from watching and reprimanding. him during our waking hours.

    I have a new one due to arrive by this Sunday.  Even a few days of having this as a loaner would be amazing in the meantime.

    Did it 10 days ago. Left Ajijic at 5AM stopped for gas & bathroom in the SLP periferico. Filled tank on the Saltillo-Monterrey couta at the Pemex. Arrived 4pm at Immigration. 10 minutes to pass.  No traffic because only US residents can cross.

    Macrolibramiento to direct then left on periferico around Lagos de Moreno  then north on 80 to Libramiento PTEaround San Luis Potosi (first stop in Potisinos for gas & bathroom break) then connect to 57 north to the cuota 40D Saltillo- Monterrey then north on 85D to the Av Luis Donaldo Colosio to the bridge. 


    Thanks for all the help here and we will be doing a drive on the 27th (Oct) to the border. 

    All helps and tips were appreciated.  We do this drive as a straight through, with gas stops/one day drive.

    I am surprised that others were interested in going (Drive/lead/follow) but solo is fine too.

  6. We've done this route before, but would appreciate directions beyond that of what we have used in the past which was Google or Waze.

    I am going to get a paper map this time, and map out that route - Appreciate help with that if anyone is experienced. (We are in Ajijic)

    1) Care to share your specs to this Laredo Bridge, so we have extra info?

    2) Experienced driver headed that way, we'd be interested in hearing from you. We would welcome following someone.

    Our trip out is super early (before dawn), morning of Oct 27th.  We like to arrive in Laredo while it is still a reasonable hour in evening (we have an airbnb reservation there)!

    We do a straight drive through, stopping only for gas and short dog walk breaks.

    Thanks a bunch!

    If you believe COVID-19 "traffic signal" sanitation warnings are based on miracles and magic then you are misinformed.  Here is an exhibit showing the empirical evidence used to determine the "red signal" warning for Jalisco for 9-22 August 2021.  You can review the methodology for yourself if you wish by accessing the link below.

    Semáforo de riesgo epidemiológico COVID-19: indicadores y metodología


    The public is misinformed.  Point of my post was: We were not green.  We were assigned a green category, but it was not based on accurate numbers.   What has become red, would have been red if the numbers were accurate!  

    I was of course being sarcastic.  If anyone believes in the official rate of infection as stated in Mexico, they are sadly mistaken.  In fact: While health authorities are saying that Covid-19 is currently infecting some 20,000 people a day, the actual number is 25 or 30 times higher, according to an infectious disease specialist.
