I’ve been seeing a lot of fuss made among ‘natural’ dog health advocates over a recent study on dogs with Pyometra, a sometimes-fatal inflammatory condition of the uterus. It showed that dogs already ‘infected’ with Pyometra survived at a very
Roadie About 20 years ago, I got a call from my sister about her 2-year old Pomeranian, “Roadie”. It seemed he had a severe case of Pancreatitis and was having to spend the night at the ER. I don’t remember
