trouble regulating temperature

Yeah, we've worked with Rawhide in the past, but I know their fosters all have multiple dogs - not the best situation for her.

Alright, well clearly accidents happen and the girl is going to get the dog spayed once she has the pups, so why beat a dead horse? We all have our opinions on what should be done/what should have been done, but if the dog is pregnant, she's going to have her pups and the pups are going to be placed...

Basically we pick one dog at a time and our volunteers do obedience, extra socialization, exercise, etc. to enhance adoptability. Clark is our current dog - whom I loooooove....

To echo what KeelazMom said, most vets don't know much about nutrition. It is covered minimally during their schooling so most know only what they've been picked up here and there.

I'm sorry I can't be more "dog specific" but here at the shelter, during the summer months, we have a fair amount of kittens come in with really terrible eyes that need to be removed. The first few days of recovery can be hard because they do try to scratch at the eye and it does cause the...
