I am always searching for out-of-the way information. I am wary where I pick up information as the Internet is a big busy web. There is the good, the bad and the ugly. The information I bring you here is from reliable sources that have no cause to favor one view or the other.
For example, this week’s article is from DrMark from Brazil. He is a renown Vet who spends most of his time with dogs or learning about them. He speaks of how to cope with a dog that seems to be choking.
