  1. New 118 -121 junction and bridge

    approximately 2 years
  2. As you may know work has started on the 118- 121 junction near Mae Kuang market planned for 2 years. going to be a bit of a pain.
  3. Summer Heat

    If the dog will keep it on I find a large towel soaked in water works well.
  4. takeing care of a beloved one

    Meatboy your posts are absolutely spot on.if you don't mind, May I add some information that maybe of some help to others. The best test for blood parasites is a test called real time PCR , as you may well know they can remain in the blood for many moths. From personal experience a SNAP test is unreliable, two dogs a bit under the weather Snap test showed clear, but the real time PCR test showed Babesia and ecanis in one dog and ecanis in the second. Doxy worked ok after two months on the Thai dog ,but last month our Lurcher from the UK stilled showed as having ecanis, and has had another month on doxy. After another real time PCR a month later both dogs are clear. It is really important that you insist on this test. Cost of real time PCR test 1400 baht. at an independent lab. Blood tests 400 baht each at an independent lab doxy from local pharmacy 4 baht per tablet. All my drugs for my dogs I now get from my local pharmacy after just getting 2 days supply from the vets. the pharmacy even ask is this for you or your dog, they are really good even doing the dosage calculations for me ie mg/kilo. Do not be afraid to ask and question your vet, get them to write down the name of the drugs being administered.
  5. What type of pool

    Frame spares are available, how easy to obtain is the next question. http://www.intexcorp.com/store/above-ground-pools/replacement-parts
  6. This has happened to us twice 17 years and 12 years both lurchers and we really feel for you and your loss , I am sorry that I do not have any words that can make your loss any easier. However after following your posts with the regards to vets and treatment ,it altered my view on the whole issue of vets here and I began to question their diagnosis and treatmeant very carefully. It is a big maybe , but I think the points you made in your posts made me question closely the treatment of one of my dogs to the point it may have saved his life. For this you have our heartfelt thanks and gratitude. Thinking of you Mr , Mrs Sappersrest Gai Bing and Toby
  7. Need help . Pool smelling like rotten fish ...

    Two points to raise on the previous post ,filling and emptying of pools slowly should apply especially if the pool is of an unknown quantity in regards to construction. Whilst cannot dispute the fact you have filled up many times using trucks without problems,I find it strange that the BSI has included provisions for filling and emptily pools in BS 5385 Wall and floor tiling 7.2.10 and 7.2.11.A brief precise is now posted in pool scientific papers and guides. "Take no notice of the fear & danger remarks regarding the main drain. It should only be open at 1/3 anyway, so very little suction." I find this a rather flippant remark when over the years many countries around the world with their various safety councils and trade organizations are trying to eliminate this problem of hair, body entrapment by trying to educate the pool trade into the practices of good safe design. And not all main drains have a valve on them for whatever reason

  10. Need help . Pool smelling like rotten fish ...

    It is very important that you do not drain a or refill a pool to quickly 750 mm per 24 hours ie at a rate of 30 mm per hour max, otherwise there is a risk of structural damage to the pool.

    What you need is a raised drain cover such as this. http://swimmingpoolsthailand.com/en/main-drains/1226-emaux-maindrain-12x12.html
