Disease Diagnosis


NOTICE:  We are not veterinarians and cannot diagnose your dog.  If your dog is ill or injured, please contact your veterinarian immediately.  We are able to provide information about diseases and give general information on diagnostic procedures used for various diseases found in Australian Shepherds.
