Emergency Animal Clinic

My dog Fluffy hasn't been feeling well.  I took him to our local vet this past week.   But Fluffy didn't get better.  Sunday morning he began yipping.  Where do you take a dog for emergency treatment on the western side of Puerto Rico?
I began calling a list of numbers of all the local vets, and I reached answer machine after answer machine.  Finally I called Villa Michelle, our local animal shelter and they directed me to a hospital in Cabo Rojo: The Animal Medical Hospital.
At 9 am I reached a person who scheduled an appointment at 12 pm.
This animal hospital has 5 vets who provide emergency services. Their emergency is $45, and they attended Fluffy quickly.  X-rays, pills, injections and an examination cost me $100.
Their emergency number is: 787-583-0008  Their website is in Spanish, but their staff is bilingual.
I recommend them highly.  And Fluffy?  He's almost back to normal.
The hospital is in Cabo Rojo and is easy to get to.  It's right past Mayaguez Mall.    Take Rout 100 to Cabo Rojo.  It's on your left side, keep your eyes open, its  right before Toro Mortorcycle.
Watch Fluffy's Christmas Special!

Sears Refrigerators in Puerto Rico

From Puerto Rico Fridge

We like Sears and have always bought their products. We especially like their guarantee, but this times we made a mistake. We bought this "vinyl" coated fridge because we thought this coating would protect it from the salt. Living on the beach we get salty air. But this is not a vinyl coating. It is a type of paint that cannot withstand salt. I bought the extended guarantee, but Sears does not cover rust damage. This fridge is about a year old.
I was complaining to the gentleman who removed a swarm of bees, and he told me his son repainted refrigerators. I went to see him, and he told me he gets many refrigerators needing painting repairs. His specialty is cars, but he does fridges on the side. He charged us $160 for this paint job. He used European sports car paint. It looks really cool now, I only wished I would have chosen another color.
