Jannie answers ShihTzu questions on AceOfPups.com.

  1. what age will a vet repair a pups an inguinal hernia?
  2. when should Shih Tzu puppies take heart worm medication, more.?
  3. is a Shih Tzu’s single or double haired?
  4. my Shih Tzu has worms in his poop?
  5. my Shih Tzu has bloody diarrhea and will not drink?

While I do highly recommend you visit your veterinarian for most ailments,
studying your pup will help you get to know their nuances and you can probably handle a lot of their minor ailments yourself.
You will gain more experience by listening to your vet as he explains remedies during your regular visits.
