    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,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Ten Reasons to Go to the Pet ER NOW!
    Annie_WebMD_Staff posted:
    Ten Reasons to Go to the Pet ER NOW! is Dr Ann Hohenhaus newest Tales from the Pet Clinic blog.

    Please take a moment to click on the above link because Dr Hohenhaus has listed some really good reasons why a situation with your pet means it's a medical emergency which means a trip to your vet or a pet emergency clinic.

    In a medical emergency it's important that you seek immediate medical care for your pet and not wait for an online reply to be posted to your question. Remember that there are no on call vets here and the board cannot be a substitute for an in person visit to a vet.

    There's nothing better than a warm fuzzy hug from your pet!
