Tesmamma Dear everyone...I'm sorry I rambled on about all my personal woes..and I did not realize I could click on a name an send a personal message to questioned asked privately instead of hanging out all of my dirty laundry for the world to see...yes I know when all else fails "read the directions"
Thankyou everyone for any and all help....I can't get back on line again until much later today..in the meanwhile the local town...now that I can get out of the driveway...use to have a health food store. I will try to find D-Mannose and Probiotic.
I have cooked up some beef kidney, heart and hamburger to that I add a tablespoon of ACV..2 of Greek Yogurt and about 200 mgs of Ester C..Tess will eat that..she won't touch anything to drink unless it is just the bottled water..not even with beef broth.
Thankyou everyone.

Tesmamma Thankyou so much for your lovely reply..I live in between Glencoe and Appin Ontario..I need binoculars to see my nearest neighbor.Ontario Works turned me down because apparently they have some sort of "roof" over the whole thing and what my hubby ( ..separated he moved back to Victoria puts in the bank in the "joint" but it is only "Joint" in case there is some screw up with the auto payments..propane..phone..etc..but I cannot touch it. Bottom line..with what is allowed for maximum under housing for OW even if he took his name off the account it still would not cover what he is paying for every month...Big house my dear..big giant old house wish I could dig a hole and bury it. I will put credit where due..lots of guy who decide they don't want to be married any more just walk WALK away. I did originally apply for a CDPP (did I get that right?)penison for all the CPP payments your whole life...they rejected me stating that in between "flare ups" when I wear a horse collar since the AS is predominated in my neck and I take prescription pain meds (another reason to remain Mrs..I'm on his health benefits even though he's retired) according to them I was employable..we shall look over the fact that I am nearing 60 and have a grade 10 education..according to the federal government somewhere in Canada there is a sedentary job for me that won't mind if you have a lot sick days..it was the agent for OW herself who told me flat out. 95% are rejected right out..I had to have a doctor (and pay for) forms filled, go to london and have an MRI of my neck blah blah on and on but I guess that" NO" 95% of the time separates the chaff from the wheat..guess I'm the chaff..I am the canadian bred and born female uneducated worker bee who's time has come to get booted from the hive. According to her I should have re applied. Mayhap I shall or maybe I should just be applying for early CPP..I have worked my whole life a low paying back breaking jobs....so I guess the coin toss is 50 50. Well that was certainly more than you expected from me wasn't it. There is a certain comfort in anonymity.

As for YOU. Did welfare turn you down for emergency funds or help direct you to ODSP? They won't give you money for shelter, as your ex is "paying" for it, but what about food?

Have you contacted or looked into federal disability? This is permanent disability (as ODSP is only temp, but you have to be considered unable to work for at least a yr.), You can also draw early from your pension, it goes hand in hand with fed. disability...I know two people who have done this, but not sure of details as to how.

I second what GatorBytes says. Since you are 60 you can apply for CPP early assuming you have a work history. It will be a reduced amount but you need the income now. Do look into ODSP if you are incapable of working for the shorter term and if you are on these, or if Ontario Works will put you on partial benefits then you for sure qualify for The Farley Foundation funding. The weather is going to break by Friday, hang in there, be strong for your girl, and take care of yourself.

GatorBytes I can completely understand what you are going through. Thankfully there are healing powers in nature.

Have you taken her temp, not just speculated a fever?

Where are you in Southern ON. (general area is fine)? I may be able to refer a holistic vet who may be able to give you a phone consult? (not sure, but worth a try) She is not expensive.

Parsley water is a good natural diuretic that will help flush bacteria out. Google for a recipe and include dog in search.

Uva Ursi is another UTI herb.
Goldenseal or any berberine herb is natural antibiotic (use 3 weeks max.). Licorice root (not the candy) is a natural cortisone like herb - for inflammation (use only for two weeks)
Astragalus root too is a mild diuretic and immune support herb - it is also considered for the spleen

I have concerns that she has an infection from the surgery. This happened to a cat I had many yrs. ago after having his large intestine removed, even though he had a coarse of abx. after surgery. I was in and out of the vet for chronic diarrhea - the opposite problem for his surgery. It was so bad that I had covered every furnishing in my home with sheets and blankets. This went on for months...Vet through his hands up - forced my way into a specialist as he wouldn't refer me...blood work showed a bacterial infection...a round of abx. for 10 days and it resolved.

As for YOU. Did welfare turn you down for emergency funds or help direct you to ODSP? They won't give you money for shelter, as your ex is "paying" for it, but what about food?

I am so sorry for your lost little doggie I will make a wish on my wishing jar for safe return. May have found shelter somewhere and is too cold to come out right now...

Quinnsmom You can also check out Companion Animal Wellness Foundation 2011 The Companion Animal Wellness Foundation. They have one qualifier that may be awkward - treatment has to be given at the Vet Emergency Clinic in Toronto although they say it may soon be extended to other municipalities. It is worth an ask.

Quinnsmom The Farley Foundation offers funding in Ontario with certain eligibility criteria. Eligibility Criteria I hope something there will include your circumstances. I saw your post on another forum also. There are quite a few Canadian members there who may chime in but the forum is less active than this one and it may take a while. Thinking of you and wishing you better times.
