Medical Information Sites
The following sites cover medical topics of interest to dog owners. These sites are intended to provide useful information and education. While we have tried to find sites with the best information, LABMED does not in any way guarantee the accuracy of the information. PLEASE always consult with your veterinarian if you think your dog has a medical problem and also consult your vet for routine well-dog checks.
Many of the sites listed are from Cindy Tittle-Moore's extensive collection of dog FAQ's. Her Labrador Retriever Home Page http://www.k9web.com/breeds/l/labrador is a good place to stop for all kinds of information about Labradors.
