    Cancer stinks! She has a very aggressive type of cancer in her nasal cavity and it's not curable. So for her, the radiation is for palliative results only. She's such a wonderful dog....it's been very more »

    Hey Everyone I'd love to hear from the dog owners who have dogs that get very anxious at the vets. My dog is 7 yrs old and I adopted him when he was 1.5yrs. He was very sick when I got him, so we spen more »

    Posted 08/04/2010 12:09:14 EDT

    We have a local dog here with an invisible fence. When the family goes to their vacation home, they take off the collar and most times, forget to put it back on when they return. How do I know this? T more »

    Poppy- you're making the best decision for your situation. In case it hasn't come up- make sure you discuss a pain mgt strategy with the vet before you bring your cat home. I don't know a lot about ca more »
