'It is best to plant the pinkberry bush next to other pinkberry bushes or blueberries, as this will make it grow more fruit due to pollination.
Increasing urine volume and opportunities to void urine are important factors in preventing uroliths of all types. The more a dog drinks and the more frequently he urinates, the less concentrated his urine and the less likely the formation of crystals that can become stones. Encourage your dog to drink more by adding water to his food and offering flavored water in addition to plain. For dogs with urate stones, you can add salt to food to increase thirst (start with a pinch, watch your dog’s response, and add more in small steps until your dog drinks more water), but added salt should be avoided for dogs prone to forming cystine, calcium phosphate, or silica stones.
In other breeds, dogs with cystinuria are almost always male. No genetic test is available for them, though the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine (PennVet) is collecting blood samples from affected Mastiffs and their genetic relatives to try to produce a DNA test. The average age at onset of clinical signs is about 5 years.
Medications that can enhance calcium excretion, including prednisone and furosemide (Lasix), should be avoided if possible. Salt should not be added to the diet, as sodium increases urinary calcium.
“The good news,” she says, “is that many dogs, including stone-formers and those who had serious complications when their condition was first diagnosed, have lived not just normal but longer-than-normal lives.”
Cats or snakes? Our cats are good mousers, and run a regular ruite around the gardens, keeping down the rodent population. Mid-sized snakes are good, too, because they can follow the rodents right down their holes. In our area, we get fox snakes, which are not poisonous. Not sure what might be native to your area, so that might be tougher to work out. If you have habitat (rocks, cover), odds are that snakes will move in. last summer we had a family of ground squirrels move in underneath one of our concrete patios. The cats got two babies, and one morning I saw a snake exit the area near the hole to go hide in my nearby flower bed. Didn 8767 t spot another ground squirrel from that hole.
Blueberry seeds are definitely best used for indoor growth, although, you may have some success outdoors if you live somewhere with a subtropical or tropical climate. Indoors, the plant responds well to both the SCROG and SOG methods with hydroponics and skilled growers can expect yields of up to 555 grams per square metre. Flowering time is around eight to 65 weeks.
Unfortunately, says Keith, these strategies are ineffective. “Most of us on the Canine Cystinuria list have found that diet and urinary alkalization have failed to prevent our dogs from forming stones,” she says, “and they have sometimes caused other problems, including other types of stones that form in alkaline urine. If the urine goes into acidity even briefly, cystine stones can form and they won’t dissolve just because alkaline urine is achieved soon after. In addition, feeding ultra-low-protein diets can be dangerous, especially to giant breeds and breeds prone to cardiomyopathy.” (See The Side Effects of Low-Protein Diets below.)
In Games Ponies Play , Sombra is briefly referenced when Rainbow Dash says the Crystal Ponies "lost a thousand years to an evil king's curse."
Still, Blueberry Haze is a plant for people who like to garden, not for home or commercial growers seeking an easy crop. She can be persnickety and will show her displeasure if the garden is not kept clean and well regulated within favorable light and temperature conditions. But smoke connoisseurs are likely to find Blueberry Haze worth the effort. This hybrid inherits the taste that goes with the name: a succulent berry flavor with a bit of the fresh herbal hue of the Haze. The true reward is quality of the high, which builds from a mild feeling of wellness to euphoria, inspiration, and perma-grin. The potency and gradual onset require some experience and pacing overuse may turn an enjoyable buzz into sweet dreams as overwhelming drowsiness kick in.
