  1. Mysterious stiffness/limp in Chessie's front leg

    Dog Health Questions
    Hello! I've been to three vets already, and none of them have any real answers, so I thought I'd see if anyone here has thoughts. My 9 year old Chesapeake bay retriever Maximo has had significant stiffness in his front right leg since 6/18/17 after an 8 mile hike. His xrays were perfect, and...

    I'm an owner of a 10 yr old male Maltese. Today he jumped off of the porch and something went wrong. When he landed he let out an extremely painful yelp/cry.

    Dog Health Questions
    It started out as a goofy thing. My husband noticed that when Kidogo went down the stairs he only used three legs. But now it seems to have gotten a lot worse.

    Let's say you were bitten while breaking up a dog fight in a public park. Would you report the bite? What if it required medical attention? My dog was attacked by a little white dog this weekend and I (carelessly, I admit) reached in to protect my dog and stop the attack and was bitten by...
