    I guess it wont hurt to look into it. I love her dearly and only want to
    do whats right for her.(even if I dont like it doesnt always mean it not
    good for her) Our house has been extremly quite the past few days as we
    had to put one of our dogs down due to an infection she got. My too and
    her were close. So the past few days she has been very quite, the whole
    house has. I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks for all the advise.
