EMERGENCY VETERINARY CARE OF TUALATIN - Jonathan Wisniewski, DVMHeat prostration (or as it’s more commonly known, heat stroke) is a serious medical condition that can cause vomiting, blood clotting, organ failure and even death in dogs and humans alike.

In canines, heat prostration can be caused by a mix of external and internal factors. Keeping a pet in an enclosed space, exposing them to high temperatures or humidity and limiting their access to water all increase the likelihood of heat stroke.

There are also internal risk factors, including certain medications, hormonal imbalances, lack of exercise, fever, or the ingestion of macadamia nuts or hops.

Warning signs of heat stroke include dullness, weakness, wobbly behavior, collapsing, convulsions — even coma.

If you think your dog may be suffering from heat prostration, treat it like an emergency. The best thing you can do is lower the dog’s body temperature immediately, either by moving it to a cooler area or by wrapping it in a cool, wet towel. Then transport your animal to the nearest veterinary hospital.

Depending on the severity of the emergency, a veterinarian may insert a breathing tube or IV to provide supplemental electrolytes.

Most animals require a few days of intensive monitoring to ensure a complete recovery. Delayed symptoms can develop three to five days after an apparent recovery, including kidney failure, liver failure and sepsis.

Know the warning signs. Never trap a dog in a hot, enclosed space (like a locked car) for prolonged periods of time.

HARNISH PROPERTIES - Justin HarnishQ: We plan to sell our house soon. What are the essentials to get a home ready to show and to sell at top dollar?

A: When preparing a home for market, it’s imperative that a seller think of the home being in competition with other “products” in the relevant market place.

Even in the current seller’s market, with low inventory of available homes and faster-than-usual sales, you want your home to make a strong impression and to command top dollar against competitors.

Q: In your view, what are the essentials to give a home dazzling curb appeal?

A: The home must be show-ready and sale-ready at a moment’s notice. This means that the broker and the seller must cooperate prior to market in the preparation by decluttering, staging, exterior and interior cleanup and maintenance checkups.

Q: Will a good broker have resources to suggest, such as landscapers, painters, handypersons, sewer-scopers and oil-tank removers?

A: Your home is dynamic and the systems must be in top shape. They will be inspected upon purchase, so they must be in order. A seasoned broker will have a list of trusted vendors to help get the home prepared for market and complete deferred maintenance, all of which is typically not easy!

Q: How important is home staging?

A: Very important! Statistics show that a properly prepared and staged home will sell 88 percent faster.

DRNGYN - Dr. Nancy SalisburyFor women experiencing vaginal dryness and discomfort, there are plenty of products and treatments that can help. Make sure what you’re using is safe. Also, try them out and find out what works best for you and your partner.

The North American Menopause Society offers the following solutions.

Lubricants can be water-based, silicone-based or oil-based:

· Water-based products include Astroglide and Femglide. YES is an organic, water-based lubricant free of additives.

· Silicone-based products include ID Millennium, Pink and Pjur.

· Avoid oil-based products such as mineral oil, petroleum jelly and baby oil, which can cause irritation and latex condom breakage.

Vaginal moisturizers, unlike lubricants, are absorbed into the skin and mimic natural secretions. Moisturizers are more long-term, lasting up to four days. Replens is available over the counter.

Low-dose vaginal estrogen therapy acts to reverse the thinning and dryness of tissues. It comes in several forms, including creams, low-dose vaginal rings, and a tablet called Vagifem.

Those who choose not to use hormones at all need an alternative.

MonaLisa Touch, a recently introduced outpatient vaginal laser treatment, is designed to relieve sexual discomfort due to vaginal dryness after menopause or cancer surgery.

My practice, DrNGYN, is the only clinic offering the treatment in the Portland area. MonaLisa Touch is an office-based, noninvasive treatment that is FDA-approved. The procedure takes 5 minutes, women feel no pain and more than 95 percent of patients are satisfied.

VIC'S AUTO CENTER - Mike KeelerWhile it’s true that the price of gas at the pump has dropped considerably, that’s no reason to waste it.

With Earth Day just a week in the rear-view mirror, it’s worth considering the many ways we can improve fuel economy and be as energy-efficient as possible.

Proper vehicle maintenance is a must. Make sure that the air and fuel and air filters are serviced regularly, once or twice a year. Check engine performance; if it’s running efficiently, your gas mileage will improve an average of 4 percent. Fixing a faulty oxygen sensor can improve mileage as much as 40 percent.

Get your tire pressure checked. Tires lose on average a lb. of pressure per month, or 12 lbs. annually. If you don’t inflate them regularly, your fuel economy will be compromised. Properly inflated tires improve gas mileage up to 3.3 percent.

Drive smoothly, avoiding jackrabbit starts and hard-brake stops. Keep a steady pace, avoid traffic jams, and use cruise control when on the highway.

Empty your trunk occasionally, which may sound off, but some people use it as extra storage. There might be 400 lbs. of stuff back there, weighing down your vehicle.

If you have a roof rack, remove it when not in use to cut down on drag.

Use top-tier fuel, which is certified as gas that has been qualified to meet a certain standard. Chevron, Texaco, Shell and Costco carry top-tier fuel in all the gas.

HASSON COMPANY REALTORS - Mike HallWhether you are a visitor or a seller, here are some smart tips to make open house season worthwhile:

As a seller: Your open house is a big debut. Plan to make a splash. Even in a strong seller's market, remember you’re not selling in a vacuum.

Your agent should recommend how best to prepare your home the big day. First impressions are important, so don’t rush and cut corners.

Many people who come to see your home will have seen homes more and less appealing.  You want to try to generate maximum interest in a short period of time, so consider leaving town for a weekend away so your agent can coordinate showings in one big burst. 

As a visitor: Prepare a little bit.

Have an idea of what you care about most, and look specifically for it. Bring a checklist if you need to.

Wear booties when provided, or take your shoes off.  Know that the agent hosting (not always the listing agent) may have an exclusive agency relationship with the seller, and be bound to look out for the interests of the seller not you.  If you are working with an agent already, let the hosting agent know, and chat them up — they can be a valuable resource! 

Even if you’re just casually looking and seeing what’s out there, open houses will build your own market perspective.

LAKE GROVE DENTAL - Dr. Charles BranenCone beam imaging, a relatively new technology to dentistry, has already radically transformed the way dentists gather information.

We can make a diagnosis and a treatment plan in a manner previously unimaginable and the patient benefits from lower radiation exposure.

The technology uses radiation in a manner similar to conventional X-ray imaging.

The difference is that cone beam images are converted into a 3-D view that can be reprocessed by sophisticated computer software. With cone beam, hundreds of “slices” of information are gathered and reassembled into views that allow interaction and manipulation, improving what we see and our ability to diagnose.  The information can easily be shared with specialists.

The patient stands or sits within the unit and the top of the machine circles around the patient’s head. A series of beeps are heard as it is in motion and after 14 seconds it is complete. The cost for our patients is about the same as a Panorex image or full mouth series, but with hundreds of times more information.

I decided to add this technology into my practice about two years ago when I realized that state-of-the-art treatment planning for implants now require 3-D imaging.

The extra information I have from this technology has far exceeded my expectations. I can see and diagnose fractured roots, abscesses, proximity to nerves, and sinus pathology — allowing me to understand the cause of previously undiagnosed facial pain like never before.

PETROFF CENTER - Dr. Mark PetroffLooking for a non-surgical treatment to make your face, neck or décolletage look younger?

Ultherapy, the only non-invasive treatment that’s FDA-approved to lift skin, is an attractive option.

The treatment gently and gradually lifts skin on the eyebrow, along the jawline, under the chin and on the neck, and smooths lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.

It’s the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the target layers of tissue and ensure the energy is deposited to where it will be most beneficial.

Ultrasound has unique properties that allow it to bypass the surface of the skin, going deeper than any other noninvasive cosmetic device. Ultherapy stimulates collagen production in the skin’s foundation, resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over two to three months.

The treatment jump-starts a natural process (known as neocollagenesis) to produce fresh new collagen. There are no creams, fillers or toxins involved. The process relies on your body’s own collagen-building process for natural, noticeable results.

It treats the deep, foundation layer addressed in cosmetic surgery, but doesn’t have the results or longevity of a surgical facelift.

A good Ultherapy candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity, where the skin begins to feel and look less firm. Examples include a lowered eyebrow line; loose skin on the cheek, jowls or neck; and lines and wrinkles on the chest.

Schedule a consultation with us to find the best solution to your beauty needs.

Needless to say, there are a lot of ways to go local and build a more sustainable world.

While all of this is great, have you thought about what these activities mean for our local economy? What about how your banking activities might help our local economy? If not, I’m hoping to add yet another catchphrase to your lexicon: economic sustainability.

You might be asking exactly what this means. As a community bank, this is a cause we are dedicated to each and every day. By employing local residents and lending to local businesses, we are building a more economically sustainable community right here in Lake Oswego.

Stop in The Bank of Oswego to talk about your finances and how banking locally with a community bank could be the right decision for you.

Remember, we’re all in this together. Community banks are only successful if our customers and communities are too.

Mike Keeler, Vic's AutomotiveUnless it’s very hot or cold, many car owners don’t think to get their coolant serviced.

I’m not talking about topping it off, or taking a peek at the fluid yourself. Consult with a professional auto shop before it’s too later.

If you look in there and see something green or blue, that doesn’t mean it’s OK. The actual additive that prevents rust and scaling may not be doing its job anymore.

If we get a car in here at 100,000 miles that has never had its coolant replaced, it can lead to very costly repairs on the radiator, thermostat, hoses or heater core (the last one alone can cost $2,000, especially on foreign cars.)

Conventional coolant should be replaced every two to three years, which costs $100 to $150. We suck the fluid out of the cooling system and put fresh coolant

Even so-called “lifetime fluid” should be serviced every five years.

Radiators these days are more fragile than the old metal radiators. The systems are more fragile. Some of the parts in there are plastic. Some of the chemicals used in the old days are too corrosive on the newer systems.

Don’t ignore your coolant.

You can be very proactive, at little cost, to prevent big problems down the road.

Dr. Nancy Salisbury’s clinic — DrNGYN in Lake Oswego — is the only clinic offering the treatment in the Portland area.

Lubricants and hormonal cream are the standard treatments for vaginal dryness and pain after menopause. Those who choose not to use hormones at all, including cancer patients and survivors of cancer, need an alternative.

“Lovemaking can feel like sandpaper, broken glass,” says Salisbury. “It is supposed to be pleasurable for everyone involved.”

MonaLisa Touch is an office-based, noninvasive treatment in which a CO2 laser probe is placed in the vagina to administer 360-degree micro-injuries (“micro-puffs”) that act on the mucosa-stimulating biosynthesis of new collagen growth and tissue regeneration. The vagina looks young again under the microscope.

The procedure takes 5 minutes and women feel no pain, says Salisbury. Three treatments, six weeks apart, cost $2,400 and are not covered by insurance. “There may be a follow-up treatment required a year later. Over 95 percent of patients are satisfied and there is no risk.” The process is FDA-approved.

“Breast cancer survivors already are hurting. It’s so sad,” says Salisbury. “Lovemaking is such an important part of a woman’s life,” she added. “I want to help women and couples with their quality of life.”

“It’s exciting to provide a treatment that makes such a positive difference,” she said. “Age does not matter.”

The Roost 9V Smart Battery: easy at just $35, this includes a sensor chip and supports any smoke and CO alarms in your home (www.getroost.com/). When the alarm goes off, the Roost battery sends you a message via text, email or phone call.

Nest Learning Thermostat – According to Energy Trust of Oregon (energytrust.org/), a smart thermostat can help reduce heating costs and make your home more comfortable. It knows when you’re away and can even use local weather information to make energy-saving temperature changes automatically.

Oregon customers of GE, Pacific Power, NW Natural or Cascade Natural Gas heating with electricity or natural gas may be eligible for a $50 incentive to buy a Nest Learning Thermostat (retail $249). The home's heating system must be a forced-air gas furnace, electric forced-air or a ducted heat pump with electric furnace backup.

NDr. Mark Petroff, Petroff Center Plastic Surgery and Medi-SpaNon-surgical beauty treatments offer no downtime and less risk, making them an attractive option for some patients. Dr. Mark Petroff personally administers non-surgical injectables, including:

Botox - When you smile, laugh, frown or look puzzled, you contract the muscles of your face. These contractions produce furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead.

Botox treatments prevent deepening of lines during natural facial movements and also erase marks of aging. One 10-minute treatment relaxes the muscles that cause lines to form and keeps them relaxed up to six months.

Juvéderm is an injectable gel that gently reverses many signs of aging in the face, including fine lines and wrinkles, crow’s feet, thinning lips and loosening skin. It can also plump the lips, sculpt the cheeks and restore a youthful, oval shape to the face.

It is made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that works with collagen and elastin to give volume and support to the skin. It is non-animal-based and highly biocompatible. Results last about 6-9 months.

Voluma XC is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel engineered to be placed in the cheek and midface region to restore a more youthful contour and subtly lift the cheek tissues.

However, Petroff notes, “These non-surgical procedures are not a replacement for a facelift or blepharoplasty. Surgical procedures offer lifelong improvement, making you look 10 years younger.”
