Feel free to share your experiences, questions. Please provide pictures so we can help each other. I have human health expertise, not a vet… but certain experiences can be common between both. Vets can be very expensive, certain things we can do ourselves at home, others are beyond our abilities. It’s important to know your dog and be able to tell when he/she is in distress. In my case the dog was not in significant cardiopulmonary or painful distress, which is why I was comfortable treating him on my own.
