Re: food for thought

It's very difficult to choose a high-quality dog food. Marketing in the pet food industry is very deceiving. The words "organic" and "natural" have NO definition in terms of dog and cat food. Also, there is no critique for "senior" "adult" or "puppy" food. Therefore, ANY food can claim to be organic...

Re: Teisha - Cancer

Hi Kathy, I'm so sorry to hear about your baby. Please know that your family is in my thoughts and prayers. Also, Jeff&Peks is right.

Re: Onyx is getting spayed.

Hi everyone. Jeff&Peks, I'm so sorry for the situation you were exposed to. I just wanted to point out that all shelters aren't like this. I'm a shelter vet and we do seasonal spay/neutering for the low income public. We have a completely separate building where we do surgery and where we keep shelt...
