Re: Thyroid Issues or Old Age?

Hi

Re: Lumps at injection sites

Hi
Thanks for the replies. It's not like the tough grainy scar tissue that can happen - he got that in the back of his scruff which is why we went to the sides. Will try his flank to give the area a...

Dry Eye Treatment

George has recently developed dry eye. The vet wants him to start using an eye drop with cyclosporine in it. Does anyone use an alternative drop for this eye issue?
