HORSE PILLS

FYI for those of you interested -- I have added several posts to my blog http://www.patsthegoodlife.blogspot.com in the last few days.

One of the items is titled Horse Pills and another one is about pitbulls. There are some photos from our city park when frost covered everything. I received a camera for Christmas so I have been having fun taking photos once again.

No problem. I'll swallow any size pill.

Sorry you can't.

Thank you Pat for sharing.
I'm assuming that picture of the pit bull is Chyene.
The winter pictures are very well photographed. Great Job, Pat!

Have you seen the size of fish oil? My mother was started on them while in the nursing home, and the ones she got there were gigantic.... and the ones I bought, to my shock, are even bigger!

Most enjoyable, Pat!

My mother was scheduled for a barium enema, and had to buy the necessary prep kit for it. She called me and said that she'd had to swallow the biggest horse pill ever, and could barely get it down. Unfortunately, as it turned out, she'd swallowed the enema. After frantic calls to the pharmacist, it was determined that she would live, but would have to purchase another kit in order to down the correct pill. We all had a huge laugh over that one!

As a home care nurse, the biggest issue with people needing to start "water" pills is not the lasix but the potassium that is necessary to take as well. The pills are huge, can't be crushed and must be taken with a diuretic.

By the way, anyone taking a water pill without a potassium supplement needs to talk to their doctor. Bad for your heart.

Believe it or not ... For slimming folks take drugs like Adderall and prescription horse pills, which suppress appetite

Now, about a horse needle. I give my horses their shots and I worm them. Worming is not bloody but I give them apple flavored stuff, administered in a blunt syringe throught the back of their mouth, swallowed while I stroke the throat and hold the head up. Now, if I did that to you Pat, you would never let me into your house again. However, for some unknown reason, the horses invite me back, over and over. Something about the fact that I bring sweet oats, most of the time.

Don't think all big pills are for horses. Have you ever seen an elephant pill?

Osuzannacollage, that was so funny. I'm glad it didn't have any tragic side effects and that everything came out all right in the end.

Allen, I think I will pass on the worming treatment, but thanks for your concern! And, no, I have not seen an elephant pill but I suspect they might be pretty good-sized. Think I'll pass on them also.

Not much surprises me about what celebrities will do to lose weight. For someone weighing 110 lbs. or so to take horse pills designed for an animal weighing many more pounds than that would be stupid.

Since you brought up weight loss, has anyone had any experience with HCG? I know someone who has lost 50 pounds since September using that product. I've not delved into any in-depth research, but I am curious about it. She says that something like 70-80% of the people who lose weight with HCG keep the weight off. Sounds too good to be true.

Fish oil is in gel capsules and slide down easily, despite their size. Vitamin C is a whole 'nother matter!

Calcium is a killer too, very hard and large. I'm happy to pay big bucks for the one brand that does tiny low dose ones, and take many! Oh, and there are chews.
