I would say for a Pit Bull sized dog you'd be looking at at least $1,000 around here. Because we have a number of board certified surgeons in the area most vets will send procedures like c-sections to them.

I'm a huge detractor of Natura products. Cal Nat was never meant for long term feeding, as admitted by the owner of the company. It was meant as an elimination diet. That changed about a year later. I hate Innova with a particular passion. I know of 4 dogs personally that it killed. Natura paid vet...

I'm so deeply sorry to hear about Sock-M. I'm sure her and Smeech are causing lots of trouble together somewhere!

If it's possible you may want to ask for a specialist referral if your vet doesn't have a better answer for you today. It can save you time and money in the long run.

It shouldn't be a problem. The problem is when dogs eat unrisen bread dough. I definitely wouldn't feed him anything else for the rest of the night though.

No, what is that? What's the OTC brand name? Here's a link with more info on it: http://www.marvistavet.com/html/body_hydroxyzine.html Our vets frequently prescribe it when dogs do not respond to Benadryl. Hydroxyzine is available by prescription only because it's used in people as an anti-anxiety....
