Re: Diagnosed today - lots of confusion and questionable veterinary visit/info

Re: It's all so new

I just read Gomey your note that she needs to cooperate!

Re: Winston's Thread

Hi Jesse's girl I am curious how you are able to fee one meal per day but give (3) shots per day? Do you give a snack when you are giving other injections?
