Hasn't happened to me personally, but it has to friends of mine.
Anything below 1.0 can bounce around without there being any significance. Make sure vaginal cytology shows at least 50% cornification before drawing more blood. She may still ovulate.
And that's essentially what you get to pick from around here, as well. If you want a small dog (other than the occasional chihuahua), you're essentially SOL.
I have friends in the breed, with nice dogs. Many dual titled. The price point for a well bred collie in New England is currently about half of what corgis average.
Do you currently have an agility dog?
So, I am phenomenally spoiled. Julie Daniels is my regular trainer. I've signed up for the online course, but we're also doing an in person version. So, I've already done...
What are the parent names?
This http://www.fenzidogsportsacademy.com/index.php/courses/6279 is what the six month old is working on. She's also in a performance puppy class where we do some obstacle familiarization, but...
I don't think the value of a solid foundation can be overstated. My six month old, like my trainer's seven month old, has no agility skills. But they're both on track to compete at legal age...
It's not likely an infection. Sterile cystitis is much more likely. You need the urinalysis for a proper diagnosis
I can also vouch for Lori. We went to school together. Lori has been active in sample collection for developing the test for cystinuria in the breed
I think you contacted a broker as opposed to a reputable breeder. I doubt you'd be allowed to meet the cat/parents/see where raised. They likely ship cats from all over.
If folks stopped buying them, the "breeders" would stop producing them
You want a dog with a solid angle to his knee/stifle as opposed to an upright knee
They're deliberately bred as sled dogs.
I'd look for good knee conformation to minimized the risk of cruciate injuries in any dog you select as a running partner
The nastiest prostate cancers I have seen as a veterinarian have been in neutered males. The health benefits to neutering males dogs are negligible.
Both Twister and her nephew, Jetty, were slow to poop at first. I waited patiently and cookied when we saw poop and they're both now efficient poopers
It was the shelter/ACO which pursued charges. Charges weren't initiated by the regular veterinarian.
Depends upon the cat. I have two Snowshoe Siamese, not related, but of comparable vintage. Mr. Belvedere has yet to need a dental. I have lost track of how many cleanings Jeeves has had. Or how...
My sympathies for both families and the many friends they leave behind
I don't have digital for my small animal hospital. I have older, but very high quality plates (they don't make things like they used to) and image quality is on par the digital films from the ER...
I actually know the winner.
You got lucky. There are not many young, small dogs available in many shelters. Ours are full of hound/hound mixes and pit bull types.
There is also a lot to be said for getting a purpose bred...
Certainly with the tendency towards back issues, staying lean is huge
