Utter Bull Carp! My mother in law was preaching to me how I shouldn't be doing something she doesn't like to my dog. This is MY dog! I do what I want with MY dog. I don't tell YOU that you shouldn't be giving your dog weight bearing bones. Bones that which your dog could be busting her teeth on! I don't tell you that you shouldn't be giving your dog the ****ty kibble you're giving her. I keep my mouth shut, I expect you to give me the same respect. My dog is well trained and WAY well mannered than your obese hound dog. Hhhmmmm.....I wonder who's doing right by their dog.
Call your dog's vet. Mom can call her dog's vet. Agree to abide by what each vet says PERIOD and drop the subject. (I was going to write "your Mom can call her vet" which doesn't seem accurate, but now it does b/c she sounds like a beee-atch! I hope she's had all her shots!)
4 bettas: Butch, 3-year-old violet male PK EE & 3 girls in a 30 gal sorority. I do not name the girls anymore! 1/2 of them die within a month.
30 gal: 9 Oto cats, 4 Ocellifer cats. Inverts: Cherry shrimp & 2 assasin snails.
10 gal.: Butch, his 5 oto cats, 3 assasin snails, and a few snails the assassins haven't caught.
