It's pretty disconcerting when your dog that has an insanely wagging tail all the time, all of a sudden can't wag it.

Limp Tail Condition - New to Me

Fletcher has a tail that can break glass and leave whelps on your legs if you are unfortunate enough to be in wag range with shorts on. We can almost always hear him coming through our house from the sound of his tail hitting everything in his path. So, when the wag stopped, we noticed immediately s...

You said that your vet doesn't charge a professional fee or other such "unnecessary charges". I'm not saying you're an arsehole, but have no clue how you expect vets to operate without a fee for their time. You evidently spend too much time on forums or are delusional. I didn't say anythi...

I have always given all initial boosters myself, and taken them in for a second and final exam when they get their rabies shots. My vet charges for what they actual...

After confirming the diagnosis, do not put off treatment suggested by your vet. While the treatment does become more risky as the infestation progresses, one thing is positive. Your dog will die a slow, painful death from heartworms if not treated. There is no proven homeopathic method of successful...

Fletcher is larger than I expected he would get. His parents were average size 45 & 55 lbs. I thought he would be somewhere in that range. But his grandfather, which is the kennel's foundation dog is a big dog 80+ pounds. Fletch took on grandpa's size. We have a 6 generation pedigree on him whic...
