    I would go and get at least one more opinion. I've had two dogs diagnosed with lymphoma in my life. First one was an older dog, so we put him on prednizone to reduce his discomfort, and he lasted 6...

    have you tried something similar to a hot spot spray? We had a boxer that had a cyst when we rescued him, and we'd spray bactine on it and a hot spot spray. It healed up pretty quick and he wouldn't...

    working on commercial washers, when they fill like that but won't wash, it's a water level switch. The control never realizes it's full, so it won't go on to the next step. You could look into that,...

    We've just been introducing our pup in small doses to my wife's grandparent's dog. The only reason it's a big deal to me that they are properly introduced is because we spend about 80% of our non...
