    I think, because she is older, she needs a hunter resume if you want to sell her as a hunter. Invest some money into getting her to the smaller A shows. A "green" 9 year old (and not that she is...

    Instead of filing a complaint, I would suggest calling the vets office and saying something like this:

    Yes, all three are available in Canada. :) Cartrophen (Pentosan) has been used for YEARS up here, like 20+ I believe. Adequan and Polyglycan are newer but have also been around several years that...

    I bet its not a behavioral issue. Often when it is, the poop "Pile" is a pile...not a walking trail of poop balls.

    When your dogs go out, use a foil pie plate and collect their urine. You can usually tell if its bloody. And very often, dogs with UTI's don't have bloody urine, but very dilute urine. Its also...

    Adequan and Polyglycan tend to work very well on dogs. Catrophen (pentosan) is more hit and miss, but does work very well in cats. All are quite reasonable in price for arthritis management ;)

    I have to leave my girls home all day sometimes, they get a treat for breakfast and then their "meal" at dinner. Might help with your guy. Gotta love the geriatrics ;)

    Often food allergies, IBD or even lymphoma can cause chronic diarrhea in cats, and most of the time bloodwork will come back relatively normal in all 3 cases.
