Re: Nerve Sheath Tumor.

If bloodwork and xrays check out, are they hoping to do a lumpectomy? yes. the doctor seems confident that she'll be able to remove the entire thing. That's good news! How's he doing? Funny thing is, he's never been better. His diagnosis of hypothyroid, and the soloxine he's been taking, has him ac...

Nerve Sheath Tumor.

What was a routine visit for anal glands turned out to be a lot more than that. The vet noticed a lump near Hershey's genitalia as an incidental finding as she was palpating him, and we opted to do a cytology. The DVM just called with the results: a malignant nerve sheath tumor. Hershey's going in o...

Re: OFFICIAL ear cropping/tail docking debate thread

She's not talking about dogs going home, medicated. She's talking about how they come OUT of anesthesia, before those other meds come into play.

Re: Names I'd like to never hear again*

I don't DISlike these but they are so common! We often have at least 2 animals with the same, common name -


Max
Sam
Buddy
Oreo
Tiger (for a cat)
Midnight

A lot of the other names already posted too

Re: Favorite Names that are NOT over used!

Cannoli
Butterscotch
Tiramisu
Noodles

etc!
