    ACL Surgery for 13 Year Old Dog

    My 13 yo mixed breed was just diagnosed with a torn cruciate ligament. The Vet is recommending surgery assuming she passes her blood work tests. The surgery is between $3,500 and $4,500 which isn't actually the issue. She may be close to her maximum life expectancy and I don't want to put her through a prolonged rehab. The question is: can she live out the rest of her life relatively comfortably on pain medication, or less invasive treatment? Thank you, Steve

    Icky eyed kittens

    We have 2 kittens that are 2 1/2 months old. They both have crusty sealed eyes. Their mamma too. But never the same time. One, one day. Then the next one and so on. We clean them multiple times a day. But it still comes back. Any suggestions other than the vet. Can't afford the bill. But most definitely will home treat them.
  • Underweight German Shepherd Dog Puppy

    I brought my purebred GSD home at 8 weeks and he weighed 6 pounds. I've had him for a week now and he hasn't gained any weight. He checked out otherwise healthy with our vet. Will he be normal size/weight? How can I get him on track to growing? How did this happen ("normal weight" would be around 16 pounds).

    Rockey's lack of shedding

    We adopted Rockey last February and in just a couple of weeks he was shedding like crazy. We had hair everywhere. Rockey is a black lab/hound mix. Precious. This year it's almost June and he hasn't lost any of his winter coat. Should we be concerned?

    Have tried EVERYTHING

    We have a 4-1/2 month goldendoodle. Nelson has never had a firm stool. He has no worms or any other condition. He eats very well and has plenty of energy. We’ve tried pumpkin in his food, changed his food, gave him apples, carrots, etc. Nothing works. Is it just a puppy thing or is there anything else we can try??
