FORL is a disease that has caused her front teeth to fall out. At least that's what the vet thinks she has; it can't be confirmed without dental x-rays, but my vet's office doesn't have the right equipment to take dental x-rays. Who is Dr. Pitcairn? Melissa _ From: [EMAIL

For her diarrhea, the old vet used Metrondiazole and Albon. No parasites were found. The new vet tried new food (Science Diet ID) along with Clavomox. She also dewormed her again just in case. Ashley has gained 2 pounds in the last two weeks since the visit with the new vet, but her poops are the

Sounds like what Fred gets, Mirtazapine, it worked great for him. He gained back all the weight he lost and has maintained it for over 2 months now. It is recommended to start at 1/8 to 1/4 of a pill every 3 days, my vet wanted to start Fred at 1/4 but I decided to try the lower dose first
