Be practical: Today's harnesses are often disguised as a cute back pack but the doberman setup is fine.

Myeloma patients are at high risk of infection with or without therapy. Anti-viral drugs (acyclovir, valacyclovir) can reduce risk of shingles. ...Read more

Putting themselves into a seated position usually follows a month or two later. Preterm babies will generally be later, depending upon their gestional age. ...Read more

Recent pregnancy?: Have you had a recent vaginal delivery of a pregnancy? That is a common cause of rectal / pelvic floor pain. If that's not the case the pain could be coming from an abnormality in the anus or rectum or spasming of the perianal muscles.
