That seems about right. Ontario has higher vet costs thanother places in Canada. You can get a spay here for $120, but as I see what we do and how much it costs us, they must lose money on every sx if they do it right. Then again you can get a cat neuter for $45, but I have a hard time getting a goo...

The only way I was to learn with my ex-yard dog he could be good with others was to trial introductions with a a muzzel. He had no social skills and learned that other dogs can be friendly a...

Almost 1/2 the reg dog food and some of the premium including some of the no grain has it as the main oil source.

Does she have fleas? Brush her with a combover white paper and if you see "pepper" she has or had fleas. Dogs with flea allergies usually lose hair and chew at their rump. If she has allergies, its hard to find a good food at petsmart. You may try homecooked for a food trail. Pick 1 carb (...

If your dog poops more than 4 times a day than there is a good possibility that they are sensitive to their food. Thats too much poop, unless they eat 6 cups of food a day!!!

no nothing on genetic. Some breed are pre-disposed to geting it over others. Demodex is not the end of the world. Briggy had it and when it got to the point where his immune system wouldnt fight it enough we treated him. Puppies immune systems are immature, and as she gets older, her body will fight...

If they are that concrened re fluid they should put in a drain!!!!

That way no more squeezing and it will asist healing. Heaven forbid you end up back there for more fluid retention, I would ask for a drain. Can be done under injectable sedation and takes 20 min max.
