New to the forum

Hi my name is Heather, I live in Utah and am owned by 1 dog and 5 cats. I have worked in the veterinary field practically my whole life, my father is a semi-retired vet and I currently work for another vet. I love animals, they are pretty much my life. I will tell you a little bit about my dog:

Zoey is a blue spotted on white 4# chihuahua. I fell in love with her over the internet when she was born (I was on a group for breeders as I was raising westies) and totally HAD to have her, so I finally convinced my hubby and we crossed the country in December to get her. She has had a slew of health problems (probably because she was a byproduct of 2 dilute colors breeding). She has hydrocephalus, has had sarcoptic mange, hip issues, knee issues (not patella), collapsing trachea, chronic respiratory infections, chronic bladder issues with all types of crystals, severe allergies, I'm sure there is more but I can't remember it all right now. She was switched to Prey Model Raw diet in 2010 and honestly I can say it is the BEST thing I have ever done for her, she has only been sick once in all that time (right now with a throat and bladder infection). She has no more allergy/itchiness issues and is doing amazingly well. She literally has like 30 pages of medical history prior to 2010. I am very happy in the choice I made for her. I am working on switching over my cats slowly one by one, 2 down 3 to go. I would love to get a Standard Poodle (used to raise them too) but hubby isn't convinced we need a big dog. Poor guy WAS NOT an animal person before he met me....boy has that changed.
