    Dog Health Questions
    Hi there, My 9 month old Corgi mix baby just got neutered this week. It was supposed to happen two months ago, but the adoption agency kept "forgetting" to send the certificate needed by the Vet.

Some sites state it should be done earlier to avoid issues such as testicular cancer while other sites state that it should be done later as neutering too soon can impact the development of...

  4. another post-neuter question (sorry): is e-collar necessary?

    Dog Health Questions
    My vet says yes, the nonprofit where I got him says no. Does anyone have an opinion? Also, the vet said that I could give trazadone (which he takes occasionally for separation anxiety) at the same time as rimadyl, but that wouldn't solve the problem (for some reason--I think they're really...

    Dog Health Questions
    My puppy is a Maltese/Shih-Tzu mix and he is 8 months old. He was perfectly house trained and never had accidents. I leave a pad out in the living room of my apartment and anytime he needs to urinate he goes to his pad, circles a few times and goes on the pad. He was good about it for a few...

  9. 5 month old humping--sexual or not?

    General Dog Forum
    Within two days of bringing Kidogo home he started humping his brand new dog bed. He was 12 weeks old then and other whippet owners assured me that it was just the puppy excitement, was not sexual, and it would go away, there was no need to try to stop it at this age. At that time he was just...
