I've always heard good things from people who have used MSU's Vet School.Since you bumped this thread, I might as well update my dog life.Fargo has been gone over a year and I still miss that hound.Fozzie the Pit Mix developed a strange growth inside his lip. Looked like a wad of pink bubble gum. It grew from nothing in a matter of just a few weeks. We had it removed on Thursday. On Friday, with the exception of for the Franken-Scar on his lip, you couldn't even tell he'd had surgery. He was vibrant and energetic. The biopsy confirmed what we suspected: Malignant. A "Grade 2" out of 3. I'm pretty torn up. This dog is my Buddy. I believe that while I made him a better dog, he made me a better human. My feeling is that we will not do anything too aggressive. This is a 12 or 13 year old large dog. I'd rather have him go as gracefully and within his normal lifestyle as possible rather than disrupt his final days with chemo and such stuff.Bella the Pitbull!!! is just a nut. She has developed a bit of separation anxiety and has been eating random things in the house when we are gone. The other day I came home to a foot of down in the living room from a pillow she eviscerated looking for the goose that belonged to all the feathers. I never knew there were that many feathers in a pillow. Beside that she is a wonderful dog.

I think that's a perfectly reasonable outlook. The only thing I'd add is that dogs don't react to chemo the way humans do...it tends to affect them to a much lesser extent in terms of side effects. That said, I still don't know if I'd do chemo on a big dog that age (probably not), it's just something that more people should know when dealing with cancers that have a good prognosis with chemo.

A while back Fozzie had a few tumors removed. He made it through that very well, but it confirmed that he has cancer. A couple of weeks ago Fozzie started losing his appetite. A few other symptoms made me think the cancer might have finally spread to his intestines. Vet confirmed High Grade cancer.

So we are going to have to make the dreaded trip in the next several days.

Fozzie was (still is for a couple of more days) a good Dog.

Is it a fat cat that just can't groom itself? You can try fatty acid supplements, and there are comb-in conditioners since cats aren't particularly fond of bath time.

Mr Fritz didn't like that post, so I'm going to take that as a yes.

I'm no vet, but I'd guess refraining from masturbating on your cat.
I make $31,000 dollars a year and I have a home.

If you eat avocado and aloe vera, the load will have a soothing effect on the cat's coat and skin.
12. When menstruating, use a product that right for your menstrual flow. A tampon too big can irritate and develop fungus. A product left in too long can cause bacteria or fungus build up. Products can be changed at least every 4 hours. Except when sleeping, they can be left in for the night
