I had been wanting to know if you ever thought of switching the design of your website? Its very well written; I really like what youve got to state. But maybe you can add a little more in the way of content so people could connect to it better. You have got a great deal of text for only having one or two photographs. Maybe you can space it out better?

I am a Saint Lover. I have had 5 over the past 30 years . My oldest was Floyd who lived for 13 years. Fiona was next at twelve years. Unfortunately I lost one at 5 from Addison's disease. Do you have an index that lists normal heart/respiration rate? Average height/weight ratio? I'm looking for some comparison information - I'm having trouble over here in the US, the vets are giving me the run around and always trying to scare me with test results that I do not understand. What should heart rate range be for 110 lb -10 year old male - no history of ANY problems. His heart rate seems a little high at 110 beats per minute - but the vet is jumping all the way to CARDIOMYOPATHY without any other symptoms. What about respiration rate? Breaths per minute? What should that range be? No water retention, no coughing, no lethargy - please email any comments to Thank you.

My 13 month old Beautiful St. Bernard Winston died tonight. He had 2 seizures about 2 months ago. We immediately took him to the vet and had an examination and blood work done. All the result were normal. The vet had diagnosed him with epilepsy. The vet gave us some anti-convulsant medication and told us to only start administering it if another seizure happened. He had a seizure at about 12:30 in the afternoon and didnt snap out of it like the first two he had. After a few hours of abnormal behavior we called in the vet and he administered valium and did some test. He told us to bring him home and let him relax hoping that the valium would allow him to relax since he had not slept or ate since the seizure took place. I stayed up with him all night. At 1 am. he sat up and looked at me then a large amount of blood started running out of his mouth and he passed almost immediately. It was a terrible experience and I can stop thinking that I could have done more to save his life. He was a family member and we took care of him like our own child. Im just wondering what happened and if I could have done more to help my big beautiful boy Winston. I miss him so much. He was an amazing dog that brought so much love to everyone that ever met him. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks
