    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    [TRIGGER] Maybe trigs....

    We have to put our pug down today. It's been coming for awhile, and we don't think we should wait any longer. I'm not sure how the girls are going to take it.

    With Emily's allergies, there are no more pets in our future.

    I'm so sorry to hear that. One of my cats just passed Wednesday. He had just been diagnosed with severe heart disease about a week and a half prior but I didn't think he'd go that quick.

    Just because it's been coming for a while doesn't mean it'll be any easier.

    I believe there are a number of books out there for kids when a pet dies.

    I'm so sorry for you both!

    Loss of a pet is extra hard when you have little ones
