    Hello all, I took my 3 yr old pit yesterday to the vet because he was limping. The vet told me he has a partially torn CCL. I told the vet I can't afford the surgery now and if there are alternatives. He told me to rest him for 4-6 weeks (like very very very minumum walks and keep him in one...

    Hey All, my first post here and am a nervous pit parent. My almost 8 year old bully (1/2 pit, 1/2 ABD) ate "something" that obstructed his bowel. He had surgery to remove whatever it was (the doc said it looked like a peach pit or something, which didn't come from our house if it was). His...

    [CENTER] Hi guys! I'm Jo and I'm the owner of an adorable 4-month-old pit pup named Sol. I had no intention getting a pet, he found us. He walked into our house one day, I later found out he was the neighbors, but the neighbor told me he was unable to provide for him and I couldn't stand to see...

    So after Loki's last round of vaccines he developed a lump on his back above his left hip. I could have sworn that it developed in the same spot as the vaccines but who knows... Regardless, he is having it removed and biopsied on Thursday. It's most likely just a lipoma (benign fatty tumor) but...

    Beastley is scheduled for surgery on his luxating patella. He knows something is up because he didn't get his dinner tonight and he is crying for it. I have purchased him a inflatable collar, ortho bed and a short leash. I have read up on it and it stated most likely shortly after this surgery...

    Beastley is scheduled for surgery on the 20th. We had no choice, he is rarely using his leg and limping on 3 legs. I am at my wits ends. I'm not sure what to expect or how to prepare for it. Beastley has never been in a crate since he has been with us even though we use C&R methods. He has his...

    Yep, add me to the list. Oliver is getting TPLO surgery on his back right knee on Monday. He had a bad limp for a while so we kept a close eye on him and allowed no play in between him and my other pit Zoe for a few weeks. The vet was able to move his knee in and out of place by hand and she...

    Okay, so Kane was admitted into MSU at noon today for surgery tomorrow at 1pm. They've already taken his radiographs and the measurements to go with them. The student handling Kane's case said that Kane has been a model patient, is so nice and friendly, and has quickly become one of the...

    We went to our consultation today and the vet is very concerned about Kane's leg and the fast progression of the join and loss of muscle mass just over the past two weeks. He thinks it's likely that Kane has either close to or a complete tear of his cranial cruciate, because the dramatic muscle...

    So...I'm 99% sure that Leo has mange (not sure which type) and has spread it to Lily. We are going to the vet Saturday, however, Lily is also supposed to get spayed that day. If she has mange should we cancel the appointment? I heard that dogs with mange shouldn't be vaccinated until it clears...
