Now apologies... but this needs saying. It probably will open a huge can of worms. It is not meant to cause arguments but is meant as a bit of advice especially for new members and/ or new pet owners on this forum, although it will probably benefit the older members too. Remember this is a forum full of mixed members from all over the world. We have many different types of members from young to old, novice to experienced etc etc. The only thing we all have in common really is pets ( ) I mainly live in the dog forums so I notice it the most there but I'm sure it happens in the others too. There are some posts/ posters that regularly include incorrect information that could cause devistating consequences for your pet. Please, please for the sake of you pet contact a vet if in any doubt, or your breeder if applicable. Just please remember ANYONE can post on here and it may seem a reliable source, but its not always the case. Having said all this the majority of members on here are so reliable and experienced I would trust them with my dogs (thats saying something ). They are incredibly honest and knowledgable, and those people know I think highly of them. I love this forum. Its a great place for advice overall. You members ARE wonderful and I love you all dearly, which is why I want to look out for you all. Give your pets a cuddly tonight and tell them you love them.
