I also think it's important to remember not to take what your vet says as "Gospel" at all times and to do your own research-- from valid sources, of course. So many vets don't know about SM, for example, and continue to treat for allergies, etc. wasting precious time and money. Another good example would be the many vets who push vaccines and boosters like crazy as that's what they've always done when there is a lot of new research out there.
I really like what the person said (was it Claire's mom??) about the fact that we are our own dog's best advocate.
