SDC is too intense for me, and I dislike some of the false information commonly given out there. I haven't been on in quite some time.
Yeah, the general health and nutrition stuff over there drives me NUTS
Every bit of advice is sure to be followed by a post saying "Ask your own vet first." Really? If I based the care of my dog on what my vet told me to do, I'd be feeding Science diet, over-vaccinating, Logan would be neutered, and Gavroche would still not have his hypothyroidism diagnosis - oh, and my dogs would be FAT with super-long nails. Logan would be on W/D to mask the symptoms of his previous clostridial infection, instead of pushing to treat the **** thing. Neither dog would be on any supplements, except for a joint supplement for Gavroche. Following my vet's advice exactly also means following his training advice, in which case my dogs would be walked in prongs and haltis (both, not one or the other) and not actually trained.
Yeah, SDC has it downfalls, and it's certainly not for everyone. Like I said, I much prefer this place, except for on specific service dog issues (access and stuff like that). This place is freaking awesome
