HOW TO PET-PROOF YOUR HOUSE AND YARD

Whether you have your first puppy or have owned dogs before, it is a good idea to check your house and yard for potential hazards.  Here are some important tips that could save you and your dog a lot of grief.

Avoid a possible tragedy by informing yourself about how to keep your dog safe!

 

PYOMETRA

Pyometra can be misdiagnosed or undiagnosed.  If you have an intact bitch, please read this article that was in the AKC Gazette in April 2011.  If your bitch should seem to be feeling unwell a few weeks after having been in season, please consider pyometra and get her checked out immediately.
