Hi JaCustomer,

Welcome to Just Answer. My name is Jane. I have been involved professionally with dogs in the healthcare and behavioral fields for over 20 years. I’ve worked as a Vet Assistant and Behaviorist and have extensive experience in dog reproduction, as a breeder, for even longer than that.. Canine behavioral issues and training are also my specialties. It will be my pleasure to work with you today.

It is necessary for me to get a little information from you before I can type up your reply. Your patience is appreciated.

What kind of defecation problems does Miley have?

Is there any odor to the area?

Never mind, since ou were so slow in replying I took her to the vet and she has a tumor. Not at all happy with the amount of time it took you to respond. I've learned my lesson to never do this again.

I feel this site is a rip off, all about the $$$ not helping the people with questions about their babies!

Unfortunately, your question was not in a category I could answer in until a few minutes before I responded the first time. That is a site issue and not anything I personally can remedy. I will send your remarks to customer service.
