I worked with a doggy dermatologist during the trials for this drug. It was absolutely amazing and even after the trial most of the participants continued on it. They were monitored for a very long...
Whatever age you choose, ask about a gastropexy at the same time.
I guess I'm the weird one at work? I'm a vet tech and one of my coworkers has a mini farm. I'm always bringing her imperfect produce from home - celery, carrots, apples that my toddler takes one bite...
Grain free foods are often much more calorie-dense. Can you check the calories per cup and do some math?
These look amazing!

My dog loves carrots, tomatoes, green beans, and broccoli stems. I always buy the full stalks of broccoli so she can have the stalk as a crunchy treat! If carrots are not put away fast enough, she...
Dog food advisor was created by a human dentist with zero veterinary OR nutritional training.
Long scholarly article here which basically states that diets specifically designed for large breed...
We got our kitty (about a year old - exactly the age we wanted!) for $30 at a PetSmart. Vaccinated, spayed, Felv / FIV tested. Even though it's not "kitten season" right now our city shelter is...
I recommend standing the carrier up so that the door is open on top and that way once kitty is in (thanks gravity!) it's much easier to close it.
The only one I know about is TruPanion. They don't cover routine care, but do cover 90% of expenses AFTER the exam fee and your deductible (which can be as low as $100). There is no yearly maximum,...
My first cat once woke me up by licking my eyelid. OUCH.
Capstar only works for 24 hours. Flea baths only work while they're on the pet, and reduce the efficacy of topical treatments. Unless it's a Seresto, flea collars are useless. You'd be better off...
One of my vet tech friends recently took her 17 year old rescue shih tzu in for a teeth cleaning with extractions and spay! She came through it just fine and is feeling better than ever.
Who pissed in his cheerios yesterday? Holy crap that's unprofessional! I'd be searching for a new vet ASAP - is there an internist around who can help with ITB management? You might have...
If you use the same kind of chip that's used in dogs and cats, there is no tracking / tracing. It's not a GPS. It's a passive RFID device. Active GPS requires a battery.
"Bloat" is a generic term for gastric dilatation, with or without volvulus (the twisting). So while is stomach couldn't flip over, it could still become full of fluid / air.
It's highly dependent on the age / condition of the pet and the likely outcome. When my husband's cat slowly declined over the course of a couple of weeks and we didn't notice (been on a cruise,...
WOW. If the land is as nice as the house, I'd say go for it!
Yeah my kitty needed her canines removed and her lower jaw was cracked. However, she lived another five years with no further issues.
Where are you having it done? I hope they are taking post-op rads. Missed tooth roots can cause lots of issues down the line.

I sure hope everything is OK.
