- Sterilization can prevent female dogs from getting Breast
Cancer when they get older. From 6 years starts the danger
period where cancer can set in.
- Male dogs are also subject to cancer, I imagine it is
similar to females.
- Heartworm is a must in infested areas. The test is simple
any one who has a doggie with hip or Knee joint problems there is now a new drug

If any of your pets have a
ongoing skin problem then try Selsun shampoo. It works on humans and also works
on pets. The vet used to have it but as the cost got too high they do not any

Should you notice your dog especially pups
suddenly go off their food and vomit
after eating then it is most likely that they have a TWISTED BOWL. Take them to

gas chamber was in such a poor state that the operator. was
exposed to car fumes as well. Videos and stills were taken.

appointed Special Constable was the person who had been gassing
animals this way for over 10 years and that he has claimed the
RSPCA had known about the gassing since at least March 1998
I queried the RSPCA about taking action against the council I was
told to leave it alone. They were not interested.

and unable to move, then they experience ultra pain and the only
thing they can think of is to open the door to get out, but they
cannot move, they are paralyzed. The death is extremely
