My second standard schnauzer was from a bad breeding, had hip joint problems (genetic), but persevered. The hip joint...

How to stop pinging in your olds with 305 engine?

Either find a way to lower the compression, or use higher octane gas. Pinging is caused by premature ignition of the fuel, usually due to compression. Higher octane fuel is less combustible than lower octane fuel, so it's usually a good solution. With gasoline prices what they are today, using premium in an engine that was designed to run on regular is an expensive solution. You may end having to do that very thing but try some other things first. First have...

Will your female in heat mini schnauzer accept any male?

== == Not necessarily! It's really up to the female. Some females are very particular, and some really won't care. I would say that the majority will accept most males as long as they are in the appropriate estrus phase. The female sometime seems more willing than the male in many cases! Many females just simply lift their tale when they know that their is a male around and breed to them anyway. My Shih-Tzu has a problem doing this. ...

Should you get a second opinion before having cone biopsy?

A cone biopsy is only done after other tests have come back positive, so I don't think a second opinion is medically necessary. In order to practice as a doctor, all doctors have to have passed exams and be licensed to practice. If your smears have show cancerous cells and you do not feel comfortable with your doctor it may be better for you to work with another doctor as it is likely that the treatment will be emotional for you and...
