    I think some of you overestimate how easy it is to cover a maternity leave for a small business. I am too small to be covered under FMLA as are most veterinary hospitals. And while I'd do my best...

    It's a common surgery. You're looking at a brief surgery (it usually takes me less than thirty minutes to do one) with a fairly brief recovery time leading to marked quality of life improvement. I...

    I am not going to go so far as to say never an e-collar, but the folks I know who use them successfully use them as a refining or proofing tool. It's certainly not used early on in training.

    In a post which was deleted, someone was touting pitbulls as great for clueless first time dog owners. Our OP sounds well equipped to have a well-behaved and well socialized dog of many different...

    I'm also going to have to disagree with them as a good choice for first time owners. But, I'd say that about essentially all terriers. The other reason is that I think many first time owners (who...

    Please keep in mind that you're paying for having someone available after hours. Just as the human ER costs vastly more than seeing your GP, the same applies on the companion animal side. Just as...

    I am sorry for your loss. I can, in complete honesty as an ER vet, tell you that cats can and do drop dead with no discernible warning from heart disease. It is unlikely that you would have seen...

    I don't think pain and increased force is the answer. Look at the top agility dogs; they're over the top by most folks' standards. Easily ramped up, but they're trained to be fully functioning...

    While I am still so sorry for the senseless pain inflicted upon your family (and the seeming lack of any semblance of justice) I am happy to know you have another love in your life

    This is one where you do the sit and wait for a pat/cookie and if it takes ten minutes, it takes ten minutes. Just repeat until she figures out she is in control of the dispensing of the reward.

    Once in a rare while, one of the regional breed club associated rescues will get in a pregnant momma (I think Mayflower had two in 2013, but none since that I know of) and will adopt out the puppies....

    I haven't met a Sheltie yet who wasn't chatty. It isn't a given with corgis. The loudest one I know on course is a couch potato away from agility. Mine sound off on pack walk, but are pretty zen...

    While, I agree the experience you had seems like a possible scam, in general there's often not enough to go around/provide enough clothing for rapidly growing kids. There are some completely...

    If infertility has robbed you of the chance to have a "traditional" family, why is it so hard to understand that these folks want the whole baby/toddler experience? Actual availability of older...

    I think the comment about purpose bred dog has more to do with selection of a working partner than with the odds of Lyme disease. My youngest agility dog isn't quite yet two, but already has her...
