The Doctors: R.I.P. Lulu
The Doctors know that losing a pet can be hard for anyone, and it was time to say a tough goodbye to the show’s unofficial mascot, Dr Andrew Ordon’s bulldog, Lulu. Dr Ordon could barely anage a smile through tears as they watch videos of all the times Lulu appeared on the show. Lulu was a very special member of the team and will certainly, truly be missed.
Veterinarian Dr Courtney Campbell joined the show as Dr Ordon said people would recognize him everywhere and ask about Lulu, and said she was a star and a diva “in her own way.” Dr Ordon recalled visiting the breeder, and seeing Lulu run up to them as if she was choosing them, not the other way around. He said his dog lived a very good life. Lulu lived to be about 12-years-old which is a good long life for a bulldog.
The Doctors: Coping With The Loss Of A Pet
Dr Campbell said it’s important to remember that the human animal bond is unlike any other. If you lose a pet in your family and you have young kids, it’s important to be honest with them. Dr Campbell said you shouldn’t tell your kids the pet went away, but instead console them and tell them you understand what they’re going through. Don’t talk to the people who say “it’s just a dog.” There’s even pet-loss hotlines that you can call to help you grieve.
The Doctors: Drinks To Fight PMS Symptoms
On a completely different note, The Doctors then shared three different drinks that can help you deal with PMS symptoms. First, if you’re dealing with hot flashes, try a virgin bloody mary. Use non-salted tomato juice because tomatoes are really good for hot flashes and irritability. If you’re fighting fatigue during PMS, it’s important to boost your iron by making a drink of spinach and carrots. Finally, drink watermelon juice with lime and mint to fight bloating.
Dr Ashton drank all three at the same time, but if you had to choose one, which would you sip on?
