Thanks MaxaLisa, I will check that out. It sounds interesting.

I guess it's time for an update. The lump has continued to get smaller, and there is probably 75% reduction from the very first...

It sounds to me like the dogs don't have a real pecking order. They don't respect each other and they don't respect you. It also doesn't sound like you understand their body language, and how to...

Well the vet appointment went ok I guess. Roxy saw a new, young vet. Fresh off the books I think! :)

Well I think what I will do is try them out for 6 months and see if there is any difference. I don't see any harm in it. I can't imagine why an homeopathic veterinarian would suggest a poor product.
