I don't know if this has been suggested previously. It probably has. More and more often members encounter the same problems with their pets regarding health, behaviour, nutrition, etc. Could we have a database for e.g. arthritis, separation anxiety, whatever?

Is it possible or totally impractical given the resources of the forum?

Just a thought.

Yes, that suggestion comes up every so often.
It's not as practical as you might think because external links sometimes get broken. So it creates more work for the moderating team in maintaining the links.
This is what our FAQ section is for however! There are plenty of topics that come up often enough that having an FAQ on them would be a good idea. And I know a member or two out there who is working on FAQs, specifically in the health area.
The guide to writing them is here:
http://www.dogforum.org/showthread.php?t=5196
and the FAQ format is going to be overhauled soon to make the FAQ section more attractive.
So anyone who wants to try, please go for it. If you submit a thread to the FAQ section it will not appear when you post, it will appear though if it gets approved. If your FAQ thread is approved, it puts you in the drawing for the DogForum Surprise! Monthly Contest too!
