    My sister's pit will do this if her toenails are getting too long (which is way too often... ugh) . i think it messes with the alignment in her feet a little and causes some discomfort.

    Agreeing with this times about 10000.... The lady does sound like she's nutty as heck... but this is one part of your argument that I can't back.

    That's about all there is where I live... It's a boarding wasteland. If I can't keep my horse where he is now or someplace else on self care, I will probably get out of horses. Have been in too many...

    My critters are raw fed and I am loving the results- my puppy is in super shape, and my grey cat who has horrible gunky ears and eyes when on high quality cat food is all cleared up.
