Dog is always hungry. Is there something wrong?

For most cases in which dogs appear unduly motivated by food, the behavior is normal. Dogs have been carrying on about getting food from humans for millennia. In fact, one leading theory about how dogs first became domesticated suggests that it all started by begging for leftovers.

Let’s face it: Vets can’t be your bankers

Q: In the past our veterinarian always offered us a payment plan whenever the bill was too high for us to pay all at once. But now that he’s sold his practice, the new management won’t allow payment plans. Our dog Brandy needs surgery for her bladder stone, and we don’t know how we’ll be able to afford it. Do you have any suggestions?
