If you have an iffy feeling throughout your puppies growing stages - GO TO THE VET!

We all know that puppies go through some funky, funny and iffy stages while they are physically developing.

If you have the constant feeling that something is wrong... don't argue on the internet, don't listen to anyone but your own feeling. If you take them to the vet, early on, when you first have that feeling it can not only save you a lot of money but tons of heartbreak and grief.

Never again will I make that mistake and not listen to my "gut". Don't let anyone tell you "Oh, it's just a puppy thing." when you are the one, physically watching your puppy grow, seeing the pup every day. The Forum does not watch your pup, your breeder isn't there either. It's YOUR dog. You are the one watching and if you have the feeling that something is wrong, chances are: SOMETHING IS WRONG - GO TO THE VET!

Take the pup to the vet. Take it to the vet one too many times, pay that office fee, it's going to be a lot cheaper that way instead of "sitting it out" and waiting until it's really obvious and too late.

This is such good advise. Too oftrn do people explain serious issues asking for advise, when in reality they should be at the vet, not behind a keyboard asking for peoples suggestions.

Just putting it out there. If you have a feeling that something isn't right. Listen to it, not to anybody else but yourself.

Yup...completely agree. A forum is a great place to toss around ideas to further discuss with your vet. It is a great place to share experiences about a particular illness (such as Banshee's CRF!) and to get the experienced input from others going through the same thing.

But is NOT the place for an official diagnosis.
