    We don't have dog overpopulation in most of New England. Cats, yes. Dogs, no. There are essentially no stray or free-roaming dogs. Unplanned litters are rare. Almost all the dogs in our shelters...

    High quality suture material alone costs just under $40 for a dog spay. If some veterinarians are willing to do surgery massively below cost does not mean that the rest of us should be vilified for...

    And I'm going to have to vehemently disagree. I work both as a regular day practice veterinarian and an ER clinician. Blood pressure monitoring is one of the biggest things we do to make sure...

    My Gyn used to be part of an OB/GYN office (we lost obstetrical care at the local hospital in the hostile takeover) but when she was still in an OB/GYN office, whoever was covering the hospital that...

    I'd say if the physician's office cancels, then really the onus is on them to get the patient rescheduled for within a week to ten days.

    To put it in perspective, I pay a vet tech I used to work with to stay with my pack if DH and I go away without the dogs. There are several of them (anywhere from 5 to 9 depending on who is with me)...

    I'm afraid I'm useless on this. We live in the country with no restrictions from the town on number of dogs. My husband was then one who decided Torri was meant to stay when the breeder who had the...

    Current GP might have cancelled once--I think, when she was sick. And one morning her assistant called to let me know that said GP was running late because of delayed school start and needing to put...

    I typically have a couple of puppies for folks to pick from based on their lifestyle. My current young dog is the classic example of this. She is a brilliant agility dog. She would be a heathen in...

    Compromising on time frame is likely a far better choice than compromising on type of dog.

    Depending on when you located, expecting to be able to adopt a puppy right away may be unrealistic. I'm...

    This covers it well. General trainability is not high. I have been bringing a few dogs up the levels in agility alongside a Shiba Inu. His owner has had the breed before and even he'd tell you his...

    You do have the option of seeking out a puppy from a reputable breeder. The ones I know would consider you an excellent home. You're just likely to have to wait. I bred two girls recently. All...

    If her fur is really that messy, bringing her in to the veterinarian for a grooming under sedation to get things back to good might be helpful. Then you can train from a clean slate.

    I don't blame her for being insulted. Despite the relative intelligence of the parent breeds, most labradoodles and goldendoodles I meet as a veterinarian or that my SIL sees as a groomer are...

    Every single one I meet has to be muzzled. Every single one has been a bite risk. When we're at breed shows, it's high on the list of breeds you don't stand near. As a friend of mine put it, the...

    So, utterly not true. Mixed breeds with no testing on the parents still have hip dysplasia risks and all sort of issues. If you have a mixed breed with both halves having lab in the background,...

    I don't meet old BMD. Sweet, but the cancer risk is brutal. I'd steer clear because of the Akita side. It's super rare that I meet a pleasant one as a veterinarian.

    For some of us, being pregnant would all but take a miracle. And adoption isn't a simple road either

    I was thinking it was a good excuse for a cookout as opposed to a gift grab type event. A package of diapers or a cute bib would never be wrong, but I am thinking it's a reason for a cookout/party...

    You'd be surprised. A friend of mine pays a solid salary for his useless practice manager. He's just waiting for her to hit retirement age. Some of my happiest time working for him was when she...

    My sympathies for all of the families left behind and for a city left in ruins.

    From what I've observed reading the forums, Hunter seem to be up there. Maybe folks can chime in from other venues. But, if I were to win the lotto and go buy myself a new dressage horse, 40k would...

    For heavy duty cleaning, I use the old fashioned sponge mop that you press the water out of. I rinse thoroughly between each sponge of fresh cleaning water.
