Frequently Asked Questions about PONS You've Always Wanted to Know !

 

 

I don't plan on breeding, and my vet as well as my breeder are pressuring me to castrate my PON. What are your opinions about this topic ?

 

PON Digest has an article on this subject this month. There are additional issues as well. Did you sign a contract with your breeder about castrating your PON ? You need to consider ethical/legal/health issues.

 

 

 

I would love to attend a seminar on canine health, but none are being given in my area. Do you know of other PON owners who are interested in carpooling ?

 

If you live in an area with a sizable PON populations, you might consider calling around and speaking with owners about carpooling.

 

 

 

My PON never had allergies, but now she is itchy when pollen counts are up. Will a change in diet help her ?

 

Immune systems change and you might be well advised to have tests to make sure your PON has allergies and not a thyroid condition.

 

 

 

Are there any MDRl gene clinics ?

 

www.offa.org now posts MDR1 Gene Clinics.  For June there are several:  June 7  Colorado Springs, June 27-28 Wrentham, Ma, June 28 Bainbridge, NY and June 28-29 Oklahoma City, OK.
