The Experts at VCA Frontier Discuss Gravol - Is It Safe for Your Pet?
Just like some people, your pets can get motion sickness. That is never a good thing when you’re trying to get somewhere and "Fluffy" upchucks in the vehicle. A common medication that people use for themselves is Gravol (main ingredient dimenhydrinate) and the experts at VCA Frontier Animal Hospital often get phone calls asking if they can give it to their pet.
Like most medications, there are contradictions in some pets. It should be avoided in pets with glaucoma, hyperthyroidism, seizure disorders, cardiovascular disease or hypertension. With some pets, it can have some adverse effects and they can become hyperactive, cause vomiting, diarrhea, or central nervous system depression (heart rate and respiration rate can decrease.)
Lethargy is seen quite often (which in some pets may be a good thing while traveling). It is more effective in dogs than in cats. VCA Frontier suggests giving them the medication 20 to 30 minutes before traveling. The dose recommended is between 4 to 8 mg for every kg by mouth and it can be given up to every 8 hours if needed.
Example: 6.4 kg dog can be given a 25mg tablet. Always try at the very lowest dose to make sure they have no adverse reactions first.
If you have any questions or concerns feel free to call VCA at 306-934-8288. Make sure to never ever give a human medication to an animal unless you double check to make sure it is safe to give with a veterinary medical professional.
Prairie Laser Ink and Toner are a locally owned and operated family run business in Saskatoon. Owner/operator Anton Schouten and his daughter Maya Schouten have been running the business for over 17 years. They are truly your printer, inkjet cartridge and laserjet toner guru’s in Saskatoon! Prairie Laser Ink and Toner are Trusted Saskatoon Printer Ink & toner suppliers and you can find them in our Saskatoon Computer Category.
Printers and cartridges can really range in price. So how can you tell if you are getting a good deal? Let the experts explain in this article: There are a few things to look for.
1. Cost of the printer – If the printer is under $100, it is almost a guarantee your ink cartridges will be pricey. Lots of printer companies put out cheap printers at a loss only to recoup their losses “hand over fist” with their expensive inkjet cartridges.
2. Cost of the ink – Most printers have their ink or toner number on the outside of the box. Research the price of the cartridge(s) and how many pages’ maximum it is rated for. Keep in mind page rating are based on a maximum yield, not on an average yield. Look for a printer that has a reliable generic cartridge to reduce your cost of printing.
3. Tri-color VS Tank cartridges – There are two main designs of inkjet printers. One has all colors locked into one cartridge, the other has each color separate. Traditionally, the individual tanks with each color separated tend to be more affordable and produce a better quality print.
There are many factors that go into choosing the right printer. Contact the experts at Prairie Laser if you need help selecting your new printer!

Fitness Focus Challenge -Week Four- Sara Fell Off The Fitness Wagon...HARD.
Well, it happened ....what happened?
LIFE, Life happened.
The biggest barrier to me starting this fitness challenge before now, was my life is so hectic and often it sabotages my plans to prioritize myself. This has been the case so far in June. My last work out with Denise was May 31st and every time I have tried to go to the gym since then something has wrecked my plans.
I was on a cancellation list for the periodontist - and 2 appointments in 1 day came available so I had to take them, an unplanned business road trip to Manitoba robbed me of another 2 days, Trusted 7th-anniversary event, a family event in Regina, my son's school city track meet- one thing after another conspired to stop me moving. Then the events - with wine and food. Essentially taking 2 hours to go to the gym would have meant missing client deadlines or important family moments - and I wasn't getting to bed till at least 11 pm every night ( sometimes not getting in from work stuff till then).
Activity? What activity?
See my Fitbit for visual representation! I dropped from averaging over 75,000 steps a week to my ' old habits ' of just over 40,000. I did go paddleboarding and walking at the lake this weekend, fit in a bike ride with my kids last Sunday night and tried to walk the stairs ...but as you can see it wasn't enough.
This, of course, means I didn't lose any weight, in fact, I put 1lb back on and I feel like 2 big steps back as my energy levels have dropped off.
I can't express to you how much I am disappointed in myself, as I should have cut back / modified my food ( and drink ) intake to accommodate my crazy schedules impact - but I also failed miserably at that too.
So I failed - this is when people normally quit ( and when I have before to be honest ), but I am not going to let this happen.
It happened, its done - now time to start over again!
I have booked 6 more Denise sessions, my first is on Wednesday- I am going to go to the gym at least 5 days this week and will be sticking to salads and shakes for the foreseeable future.
Postive of week 3-4
- I ONLY gained 1.LB back.
- I was able to be there all day to see my son compete at track and field ( he was awesome)
- Trusted had an amazing 7th-anniversary event- my clients are amazing and all the extra work / long hours has resulted in lots of new contracts/work for the team.
Negatives from week 1
1. Eat salads and drink less ( I see a theme here )
2. Take the 5 flights of stairs to the office instead of the elevator.
3. Increase Cardio on all days - I need to speed up the fat burn.
4. Go to bed earlier!
Wish me luck.
