Welcome to Dog Health Forums. Whether your dog was diagnosed with a health condition you never heard about before or you are looking for a place to share thoughts or obtain support about a certain dog disease with other dog owners, this is the right place. Obviously, this is not the place to ask questions when your dog is seriously ill. If so, please don’t waste your time on a forum, but rather, rush your dog to the vet!

Please read our board rules!
Dog Health Forums is a community of dog owners where you can discuss about anything pertaining health issues in dogs and puppies, get answers to your dog health questions and share thoughts with other pet owners about anything health related.

This forum is for dog owners seeking advice and suggestions on health-related issues. Please keep in mind that that advice on a public forum should never be used as a substitute for proper veterinary attention. Owners of dogs requiring immediate veterinary should not be posting here wasting time when every minute counts; rather they should be rushing to their vet. If you cannot afford veterinary care for your dog, seek out the help of vets that can take payments, or consult with any veterinary school or college facility that can help. Your local humane shelter or a local rescue organization may be able to help. By participating in our forums you automatically accept these disclaimers and will not hold us or any of our affiliates, subsidiaries or parent company, liable for any damages including (but not limited to) losses, liabilities, judgments, costs or expenses (including attorneys' fees and costs) arising out of a claim by a third party relating to the use of the Service, or any breach or violation of this Agreement.
