WHAT THIS SUB IS ABOUT
This is a space in which current or prospective animal owners can ask questions and get advice from professionals within the veterinary community. All questions are allowed, including those that are not specifically about your pet (i.e. preparing for vet school, general animal husbandry questions).
We are not here to diagnose your pet or tell you specifically how he/she should be treated, but as a second source of information.
We will not give opinions on whether or not another veterinarian is treating your animal correctly or incorrectly.
WHAT NOT TO POST
Giving OP specific instructions on medications and dosages is both unethical and illegal without an existing doctor-patient relationship. Such posts will be deleted, and repeat violators will be banned.
Answers involving anecdotes about your own pets are not usually appropriate in this sub and may be removed at the mods discretion.
There are several common misconceptions about pet food that should not be posted to this sub and may be removed at the mods discretion.
