1. Out at my parents' this weekend and I noticed that their Dachshund's really sore in the hip. Think he got his annual shots yesterday and it's really making him sore there. But he also has broken that leg before (we adopted him from a vet that rescued him). He's probably 10 years old.
Are there any household pain relievers that I could give him? Dude can barely even walk, so I have to pick him up like a loaf of bread and carry him around.
Baby aspirin works great.
Are you sure its from the shots? Could it be arthritis? If so, give him some glucosamine. It really helps with animals suffering from arthritis.
2. To what extent has anyone used those helpful gentleman outside of Home Depot for a day's work? Any bad experiences? I trust they're all fully documented residents . How much per hour are they for moving/painting a room?
I've used them a ton. No bad experiences. Well that is if you consider me being run into the ground because I can't keep up a bad experience.
Who cares if they are documented or not? You sure aren't taking out payroll taxes. Its better that they are trying to earn money legally. BUT, chances are they are illegals.
Pay them what you would pay anyone else. Same work. $10 an hour would be good.
2 1/2. Riding off that question, is it a really bad idea to have someone like that come to your home to help you move in and possibly paint a room?
As opposed to anyone else? Think about it for a minute. These are people trying to earn money illegally. You think they want any problems with the law? They just want to make money.
Best of luck
