I've had Anwar on Dasuquin and Welactin for about a year now and am happy with the results. The Science Diet j/d wouldn't be in fitting with what most of the forum...

Thanks for posting this, they really aren't too far form us.

On another note... Am I the only one who loves little goats?! I had a friend before with a little billy goat that was probably only 1.5ft tall and he was the most hilarious little dude ever! Very cool.

Did they aspirate the growth before discussing surgery? What were the results? No they didnt do that... in fact what is that? Your vet may have done it but not mentioned it. Here's a good write-up by a vet about aspirates: http://www.mountainvet.com/showpracfaq.cfm?FAQID=26&Private=0 I would re...

This should come as no surprise to anyone who's been on the forum for sometime. Krystal has a chronic history of mysterious inaccuracies and disappearing dogs. Fortunately for her the forum has a high turnover rate and each time something wild like this pops up she disappears for a while and when sh...

My dogs have been eating both the Venison and Beef (alternating) for a couple years now and they've always done great on them. I think I pay about $30-35 for a 30# bag of Beef and about $40-45 for a 30# Vension. Good luck!

Glad the benadryl helped. Who ever knows what causes hives? Sometimes I think Anwar gets them from the air. If they don't go all the way down my guess is your vet will either give her and oral or injectable steriod to help her out. Good luck!

We have a number of clients, including one of our vets, who have had their dogs stomach tacked. If I were to own a breed with a high propencity for bloat I'd consider it.

Absolutely! On that same note regular sub q fluids do wonders for CRF cats. The more hydrated the better!

Yay Solomon! About your cat, I am sure they will get to the bottom of his troubles and get it fixed! If he does have diabetes or kidney trouble, I would recommend feeding an all meat diet...either purchased canned food like Innova Evo for cats and kittens, or a pretty easy DIY recipe from http://ww...
