    I say this is the everything guide to dog ACL injuries because what you are about to read, see, and links included represent years of actual experience with this issue x2 and a variety of treatment modalities with eventual surgeries.

    I know all too well about canine knee injuries: In the past two years, my dog has ruptured both ACLs (anterior cruciate ligaments) in his legs. After trying conservative management, including a custom orthotic knee brace, cold laser therapy, limited mobility aka...

  • 8 Secrets Before Buying Dog Food from the Veterinarian

    from Fidose of Reality

    Can you really trust a veterinarian when it comes to providing your dog with food? The dilemma crossed my path many years ago when a friends dog was diagnosed with irritable bowel disease. The dog, an active and energetic then 6-year-old mixed breed had a history of vomiting and diarrhea, particularly within hours of eating. Only after trial and error, changing foods, and experimenting with what did and did not work, the dog ended up at a veterinary clinic with a diagnosis of irritable bowel...

    The dog world is a breeding ground for catfish.

    According to UrbanDictionary.com, catfishing is, The phenomenon of internet predators that fabricate online identities and entire social circles to trick people into emotional/romantic relationships. It also applies to the pet world, too.

    Its 2015 and the Internet is not a crazy temporary fad early naysayers predicated. Lying, however, is a tale as old as time. People lie about all sorts of things, from age to height to weight and even appearance....

  • Why LGBT Dog Parents Need That Piece of Paper

    from Fidose of Reality

    Does it really matter if you are married? I mean everybody knows you are together and you love each other, so who cares about a piece of paper?

    These are the words said directly to my face recently by someone who shall remain nameless. I dont want to embarrass said person on this blog but I also believe nameless is not alone in this conclusion.

    A piece of paper holds a lot of weight, especially when that piece of paper is a legal marriage license.

    This blog is about the health and wellness of...

  • My Afternoon with Oogy

    from Fidose of Reality

    A candid moment of Larry and Oogy I captured in 2011.

    According to his dog dad, Larry Levin, Oogy was a dog only his family could love.

    For those unfamiliar with this rags-to-riches canine hero, Oogy entered the life of Larry Levin and his family in 2002 as a puppy. Through a chance encounter at the...
