I was always skeptical of flowers and herbs remedies. Infact half the time I don't believe that painkillers work until I try them and remember they do. But when I was going through anxiety problems with driving lessons, my instructor told me to try RR and minutes later (with much adamance that it wo...

:o If she gets worse and I have to go to the vets again, I will make those suggestions to them. Now i'm going to look them up for symptoms and keep an eye on her.

Scabby Nipple?

Well poor Cheese has a red scabby looking nipple (her top left one) Its quite rough to touch but I don't think its a lump. She doesn't look stressed by it.
