Please note that if you are asking a question about your animal and you think s/he may have something, put the question in this format:
Age: (required; you can round to the closest year)
Type of animal: (required; if a mongrel or a mix, please put so)
Breed: (optional; if a mix, please put what two breeds you think your pet is)
Symptoms: (required; like walking in a circle and sleeping frequently)
Physical Symptoms: (required; like a large ball-sized tumor hanging from belly; if none, put N/A)

Remember, a vet can diagnosis your pet's symptoms better than I can. I will try my best to diagnosis and list all possible diseases or disorders.
