Submitting Questions to All About Labradors

I am writing this post to serve as a FAQS page in regards to submitting questions to All About Labradors.

I would like to thank everyone for visiting the All About Labradors blog, submitting their comments, advice and questions. What started out as a small blog has grown quite large in a short time. Unfortunately, in regards to questions being sent in, it has become much larger than I can handle. I am receiving anywhere from 10-40 questions a week, leaving me months behind on answers for which I just can't keep up. When this blog first started I could answer the few questions a week but now it is impossible to answer them all. My apologies to all.

I have tried to come up with a way to alleviate this problem, such as to stop answering questions all together or start charging for answers. The answer to both of these was no, for I love trying to be of help to you and your Labrador Retrievers and meeting so many new people. As far as charging for answers, I feel that option is totally not fair as I am not a veterinarian, and that it would make this more of a business, instead of being fun.

So that leaves me with one option. I can not promise that every question submitted will be answered. Once again my apologies. Continue to submit your questions to me and I will answer as many as I can. If you don't here from me in a few weeks and still have a problem with your Labrador Retriever, submit your question again. I will answer as many as possible.

Here are some helpful options for both of us before you submit your questions and things to add to your e-mail to me.

1. Before submitting your question, search the All About Labradors blog. Use the search box at the top of this blog and the Categories labels.

2. Be as specific as possible in your e-mail. Don't just state my Labrador Retriever is losing hair, tell me where the hair loss occurs, how long it has been happening, if it's happened before, etc.

3. Other items to include with questions regarding health problems with your Labrador Retrievers include:

A. Labrador Retriever's age

B. Food sources - name brand and flavor of food, name brand and flavor of treats, and anything else you might feed them including table scrapes.

C. How long has the problem been occurring and if it happened before.

D. Any medicines or supplementation you give your Labrador Retriever.

E. Any veterinarian visits in regards to the problem and any feedback you received from the veterinarian.

F. any other pertinent information you think will be helpful.

4. Optional information to include:

A. A photo of your Labrador Retriever is greatly appreciated.

B. Location where you live. Please only the country.

The above information will be very helpful in answering your questions.

Be advised, I will be posting all answered questions to this blog and any photos to the Labrador Retriever Pictures blog. I will only use your first name and county (no e-mail addresses will be posted), If you don't want your question posted, please let me know.

If the above button is not working contact All About Labradors at:

Thank you for your understanding and I'm looking forward to hearing from all of you.
