    Ack! I've seen that in the lab; it always freaks me out and I always retest to make sure, but it does happen sometimes - cats are easy to misdose. Talk to your vet about gradually reducing medication...

    Sending jingles! I work in a lab and seen some horrendous results just like yours and then seen good progress as they're rechecked. I hope she pulls through!

    I've eaten guinea pig in Ecuador. It was fairly greasy but not bad; others on my trip said it was similar to squirrel or rabbit.

    I've looked into raising rabbits for meat and the website I read...

    They do have a food allergy panel as well. Glad to hear the medication is working! I bet the other test that TAMU is doing is an fPL?

    As an alternative to the food trial allergy testing, I recommend this place: http://www.varlallergy.com/

    It's a simple blood test and your vet can send a sample to them directly.

    I agree with...

    My gelding got estrone sulfate injections to prevent stifle locking. It didn't affect his behavior at all.

    Also, many mares can be kept together in a herd. Stallions can't. I think that's part of...

    This. I work in a vet diagnostics lab in the Carolinas and we've been seeing more RMSF this year than usual. More Lyme too. IDEXX makes a snap test that does HW, Lyme, RMSF and Babesia all at once....

    They should be able to see actual RBCs and/or WBCs under the scope. Cloudy without crystals doesn't automatically mean blood. It could also be protein casts or bacteria. Have all of the UAs been done...

    Being from the lab side...

    Look for attention to detail. You would be shocked by the number of unlabeled and mislabeled samples that we get daily.

    Oh my gosh. I've been reading the book series that Game of Thrones is based on (no spoilers, I promise). I just read a baffling scene in the most recent book: A group of people gets snowbound. But...

    Don't post when you're angry. Take some time to calm down and think before you type. If you come across as rational and professional, there will be a lot more respect for both you and your friend....

    A running event inspired by "steeplechase"; they really mean eventing's cross-country phase. Wonder if they know about frangible pins. Those of us who, in our youths, constructed jumps in our...
