I have really been wishing, now, that Simon was able to get that transfusion the day before he died. he freaked out and needed to be put in an oxygen tent, and they said it could kill him to keep trying or sedate him in his condition. Afterwards I felt horrible that I had even tried. Now I feel

Dear Hideyo, Michelle is so right; there is no way you could have known this would happen. Any surgery carries a risk to a susceptible animal; the trouble is, you can't always identify a susceptible animal. I had a (seemingly) healthy adult female spayed and she had to be recussitated; her

I have a client, (I'm a dog trainer), that uses benadryl for her Lab's allergies. She says it mellows him out. If it's something that your vet thinks won't hurt DD, it might be worth a try. If the over-grooming is from allergies and/or nervousness, it could help on both counts. My
