I just wanted to remind everyone to read the "Health and Genetics" section to this forum. I tend to read only this main discussion group at times. The "health and genetics" section is where you will find valuable info. plus we have several very sick hounds and their owners could use your suggestions, input, and support. I know how important the support from fellow Basset lovers is when you have a sick Basset. You guys have been so great through Bogie's two rock surgeries, and his ACL surgery this past year, and the support when we lost Bubba to cancer in December 2005 helped us so much. So please take the time to visit there also.
