My vet refuses to follow new vaccination guidelines, what should I do ?


It may be time to switch vets. Ask local dog owners about their vets and policies. 



My PON has gone off his expensive dogfood. What would you suggest ?


You should consult your vet if your PON consistently refuses food and inquire about blood tests. If they come back normal, switch dogfood companies. Sometimes commercial companies change formulas, sometime food has expired, etc. Consider doing a home cooked diet.
