I got myself on thismailing list which is usually just worthless junk. Today's seemed like it might be worth sharing for anyones consideration.
Knowing when to get your dog to the veterinarian can save his or her life! There are serious symptoms that should never be ignored in your dog.
First, what is a symptom? A symptom is defined as "any problem that can indicate an underlying disease" and may be your first clue to the presence of a life-threatening problem in your pooch. Some of these symptoms are obvious, but others are not. If you don’t know what they are you may not know if your dog is a little off or extremely ill.
Read our list of 21 symptoms that should never be ignored in your dog. The symptoms include:
1. Pacing and Restlessness
2. Unproductive retching
3. Collapse or Fainting
4. Not Eating or Loss of Appetite

Well it's good to know that list. Thanks for sharing it!
I think my list is much much longer than that. :-[ :P
Good thing to reference on this site, though, if someone is wondering whether or not they should go to the vet.
