Exclamation Reminder regarding medical advice

This is just a reminder for all members.

It is illegal to give out medical advice for an animal unless you are a veterinarian with an existing patient/doctor relationship. Giving medication dosages, diagnosis of a condition and the like does qualify as medical advice.

Please remember that none of us are veterinarians and that while some of us do have a veterinary background, we are not qualified to diagnose or treat your pet. Always seek veterinary advice if you have a health problem with a pet. Forums are a good place to gather information, but are never a replacement for veterinary care.

Paw-Talk recommends that you do not consider information on this website to be a substitute for advice or treatment from a veterinarian. We emphatically recommend that you consult with a qualified veterinarian if you have a concern about your pet's health or behavior.


Please also note:
If you choose to give medical advice, you (not Paw-Talk or it's owners) are responsible for any ramifications that may come of it. If an owner follows that advice and chooses to sue you after a poor outcome, you will be liable.

If you choose to follow medical advice given, you (not Paw-Talk or it's owners) are responsible for any ramifications that come of it and do so at your own risk.

It is Paw-Talk's policy not to allow distribution of medical advice on our forums, but obviously we cannot catch everything. As stated in our Disclaimer, by having a Paw-Talk membership, you agree to follow all rules and indemnify Paw-Talk of any legal responsibility for any information/advice given.
