For legal and common sense reasons, I want to stress some guidelines for using this section to discuss health issues. Asking a question on a public discussion board is NOT a substitute for professional veterinary advice and NO advice should be followed without consulting your vet first. The opinions and advice given here come mostly from people with no medical or professional training and must be considered within that context. ALWAYS consult your vet if you are concerned about a medical issue or any range of symptoms you find suspicious.

If your dog is showing ANY sign of pain, or ANY sign of clear distress such as repeated vomiting, do NOT stop here to ask questions but get your dog to a vet immediately.

There is no guarantee as to the accuracy or reliability of any of the information here.

Following any advice here is done entirely at your own risk, with no liability to this site, the site owner, or to the poster of that information.
