    Cost of Dog-ey X Rays???

    Mine was x-rayed by a specialist as they didn't know why he went lame sometimes, turns out it was growing pains and he'll grow out of it... Since the X-rays he hasn't gone lame one! Cost £800!!!!

    I was turned down by daneline because my old English cross is fully male and I said because he's never humped or fought that we couldn't have any dog not even a spayed female. She was quite rude on the phone even when I said I'd consider getting him castrated she said hed been full for too long...
