    Seasonal allergies / itchy scratchy

    hope she's doing better! i'll say that i've had the same experience with my Peyton. Benadryl pills twice a day..and Benadryl spray on her paws have helped a great deal. Cortisone shots have been necessary on a couple of occassions, but that was in extreme cases. I'll also say that we've changed...

    New brown spots on my white boxer..why?

    Hi all! Monte, my soon to be 7-year old white boxer is seemingly healthy. He does have a moderately low thyroid, which we treat with a low dose of Thyrosine. He's got a small patch of bald skin in between his shoulder blades, where the hair is slowly growing back. Other than being a pound or two...

    Dr. thinks it might be cancer!

    sending heartful wishes for positive results. i agree with everyone else...better to be safe than sorry. my first boxer ,Brody, was diagnosed with a torn ACL ligament in his knee. I took him to another vet and it turned out to be a malignant tumor that was far too gone to treat. Hopefully your...
