My dog was diagnosed with a tumor in his lower jaw. The vet said it is probably benign but after excision will send the bit to the lab to have it tested. Depending on how fast growing this is, he said it has been the practise to remove the lower jaw. I can't imagine doing this to him. How does a dog live without a lower jaw? Or will they re-build it? I'm thinking it might be more humane to see how he fares and if it turns out to be a fast growing tumor, it might be better to let him go to 'sleep'? Anyone out there who has experience with this sort of thing? Please let me know..

The vet told me my dog is allergic to grass. He is always itchy and scratches himself till he bleeds. Apart from cortisone shots, which in the long run will be very bad for him, and anti-histamine pill, which don't really seem to be doing a whole lot for him, what else can I try to help him?
My two golden retrievers have been steadily putting on weight for a little while so the vet suggested that I should change to a light dog food to help them lose a few kilos. I bought a bag of Science Plan light for them and changed them over about ten days ago. Trouble is they don't seem themselves anymore, very lethargic and obviously hungry. They've taken to hanging around when I'm preparing food which they never did before. Today I cracked and bought a couple of tins but I do need to help them lose some weight. Has anyone any suggestions or ideas... They do get regular exercise.
With reference to a question sent to AngloINFO's suggestion box about the keeping of ferrets as pets in Singapore, a check with the Agri Food & Veterinary Authority revealed that it is not permitted to import and keep these animals as pets. Exceptions can be made for the Singapore Zoo and other Institutions.
We have a lovely 5 year old Golden Labrador. He is quiet and well behaved, very friendly and affectionate. He is great with kids, house trained and the most handsome dog you ever saw. We would rather not put him in kennels when we go home for Christmas. Would anyone like to look after him for us? Not sure of the exact dates but somewhere between 15th Dec - 5th Jan.
