    If the dog got a number they passed the exam. No pass = No number.

    bakbay is correct that a dog can pass the eye exam and have an abnormality that is minor and not considered...

    3L outdoors,

    I sent you a PM too a couple of days ago, but got no email as requested. Maybe you've been too busy, maybe you're not interested in further information, or maybe since you're new to...

    I agree with Nancy that there are too many variables for a valid comparison. Food isn't the only thing that may have changed. For example, thirty years ago we weren't sold monthly systemic...

    Like Terry, I too was wondering about the climate where you live. Lower humidity might be a huge factor. Where do you live?

    I'm in agreement with Dr. Nate. There's so many factors involved in the development of skeletal structure, joints, and the supporting tendons and ligaments that a genetic test that will reliably...

    Eric,

    Part of the problem with getting old is that all of your resources get old too! I agree that the information in the notebook is dated. However, it doesn't purport to be a discussion of...

    I'm no vet, but agree that this treatment seems a bit extreme. I'd hesitate to have her spayed before getting more information.

    quackaholic,

    Your answer is incorrect! If you don't test the parents before mating you have NO IDEA of their genetic status or that of the pups they will produce! Besides, which would you rather...

    Also no DVM, but I second the switch to grain free as a possible solution to ear infections. I like Orijen, but it's pricey. A less expensive alternative that should be readily available would be...

    Meredith,

    I agree. I'm not sure if there are dozens of forms of PRA, but there's definitely more than one type of PRA, not to mention many other forms of eye anomalies. The prcd-PRA test just...

    Nancy,

    I brought a sample bag of Farmina N & D Grain Free Chicken and Pomegranate formula home and I must say that I'm seriously considering adding it to my dog's menu.

    mitty,

    Is it there because Orijen adds extra to their formulation? Or is it there because Orijen uses nutrient dense real food in their formulas?

    I agree that the testicles should remain until the dog has finished growing. At that time I would see if your vet would remove the undescended testicle and leave the descended one, assuming you can...
