    Unfortunately a lot of people here don't put the horses out after ice storms the there's little snow. Last year, January had almost no snow and 100% ice. My guy had very limited turnout (some...

    There's a difference between force feeding to get over an illness, and force feeding a nauseous cat with a terminal illness.

    Getting a diagnosis before shovelling food into them is important!...

    Don't force her if she's nauseous. If she is going for a workup tomorrow, I wouldn't stress the feeding tonight. Not fun to be fed when you're feeling like poop.

    While some people will say that...

    I have a pit x so havent had any issues, but I know that our humane societies (even though they are a banned breed) say the good ones are "bulldog crosses". Or of "pedigree unknown".

    I think they...

    If you aren't hurting for business stick to your rules! Yes, some people would find it problematic (as we often get a month or more of zero turn out here, I would not be at a barn that refuses play...

    Fwiw the last 3 dogs that came in with a bloat all ate raw. Sometimes, there isn't much you can do to prevent something like this. Gas retention happens, sometimes without even having food. Its the...

    It would be a deal breaker for me. One of mine needs a good romp when it's cold or he will kill me. Our barns arena footing is excellent and it gets used for stallion free jumping inspections,...

    First off, my condolences. The good ones never really live long enough :(

    Cats hide illness very well. There could have been somethin underlying like heart disease that can creep up really fast. ...

    Usually the stomach will return to normal function within two hours, it's all dependency on what percentage of the blood supply is cut off. Some retain blood supply while others lose it all. I would...

    The feet WILL chip up considerably about 3 trims post shoe removal. The hooves are compromised due to the many nail holes. If the horse is comfortable to get around, chips aren't an issue. Eventually...

    Food ball! Put kibble in one and they have to bat it around to get it. Won't work for wet food but mugjt keep them "busy" while trying to get the dry!

    In my experience flat coats are quieter. However I have met enough viszlas that were not "total nuts" ... they kind of grew on me. But yes...I would expect more exercise would be required!

    Sorry for your loss. Gastropexies can certainly help prevent a torsion. I'd also recommend pet insurance as it will help you with costs if a bloat was to occur. Survival chances post gdv surgery...

    I'm so sorry. I would also recommend a third opinion with an internist. As much as I like vets who "specialize" in cats, they are not actually specialist vets. Having an opinion of an oncologist...

    That would be the causal abdomen, stomach is an organ within the cranial abdomen. Yes, mammary tumors can follow the glands right down to the caudal abdomen. It could certainly be something else but...

    Sounds like a good possibility of mammary tumors, often present in lumpy chains down one or both sides of the abdomen.

    They may send her home with metacam, the reason most post surgical pets go home on it is because there is an injectable form we use in hospital then they can continue on the liquid once at home.

    Why would they have an non housebroken dog?! I mean an occasional accident fine, but a year-old dog that just goes inside the house all the time?! Crazy.

    The parameters your vet gave you to "see a neurologist" is ridiculous, I'd run to a new vet. If your child had a seizure, you wouldn't be going to your gp for advice.

    Might be a good question for a neurologist over a gp vet - they probably get asked this question multiple times per day ;)
