Look, I get it. It's very disappointing to register on a dog forum because you have a canine health concern, only to have your your thread locked by a moderator. Here's why we do that.
This forum is made up of thousands of dog-owners (and a few who don't own dogs.) Experience ranges from absolute novice to those who have watched too many episodes of Dog Whisperer to some very experienced professionals. You have no idea, especially if you're new here, which is which.
Well-meaning members may give you very bad advice, or good advice which doesn't actually apply to your dog. Nobody here has ever seen your dog. Very few here are veterinarians. Bad training advice, ("Just rub his nose in it.") can potentially harm your dog, but bad medical advice could kill your dog or make a condition much worse.
Inappropriate advice puts your dog at risk. Because of liability concerns, it also puts the forum at risk.
Even a seemingly innocent question like, "Should I be concerned?" will not be allowed. If someone says, "I wouldn't worry about it." and your dog has a serious condition, nobody wins. If you're concerned-enough to register on a dog forum and post the question, it's time to call the vet.
We hear all sorts of reasons why someone posts a question here instead of at least calling the vet. "It's the weekend. My vet is closed." If you have a dog, you need an emergency plan. We use the only vet in the area that's actually on call for off-hours, and then it's only for existing clients. Despite that, I've made the 50-mile drive to the nearest emergency vet and spent $800, just to be told, "She'll probably be okay. Call us if it gets worse."
Or, "I can't really afford a vet right now." Again, if you have a dog, you need an emergency plan, whether it's Care Credit or insurance or a dedicated credit card that you only use for emergency vet care or an understanding relative that will loan you some money. Also, phone calls are usually free and you can get a professional opinion instead of very questionable ones from a bunch of strangers on the Internet.
We've heard, "I don't really trust our vet." You need to find a different vet.
But, still, you're disappointed in the forum and really upset with the moderator who locked your thread. You might feel like reposting your question on another thread and maybe throw in a little dig at the moderator that closed your first one. Or maybe you want to argue via private messaging. Don't do either. At best, you'll be ignored. At worst, you'll be banned from any future participation. Even those well-meaning members who offer medical advice might find themselves in a brief time-out.
If you're concerned, call your vet. If your thread gets closed, understand it's not subject to review. It's not debatable. This is not a democracy.
