Therefore you should not be advising that Joe Schmoe buy their own vaccines. I gotta agree with this...personally, I feel this is something that should be left to those who know what they are doing (like RuffMuttK9z and Misskiwi67) and amateurs (such as myself, as well as your average forum member)...

I just looked at your intro. If Rosco is currently 4+ months old and has yet to visit the vet, it is most definitely time to take him.

Diamond foods are not bad. They make low-quality/budget formulas just like most other brands, but they also have many high quality formulas (like Diamond Naturals, Kirkland and TOTW) that have not been involved in any of the recalls. One good thing about their higher-quality formulas is that many d...

you'll find that only the "right wing" type of dog owners really oppose this. people who are very into "traditional" training methods, etc. lol Right wing type here...well...sort of... IMHO, microchips are GREAT tools...it seems like the pros most DEFINITELY outweigh the cons...

Definitely! Frontline helps A LOT, but we still find plenty of ticks...I can only imagine what it would be like WITHOUT frontline! Try Advantix... Frontline allows ticks to bite and kills them before they're able to transmit disease... advantix keeps them from biting so they fall off and die before...

If you check for ticks each day, there's little to worry about. Definitely! Frontline helps A LOT, but we still find plenty of ticks...I can only imagine what i...
