Re: Barney my gorgeous boy has gone

Alison, we are so sorry to hear that you had to make the hardest decision of all. Barney was blessed to have such loving and caring parents.

Our two send hugs and licks.

Hills pet food recall

Below is an extract from Hill's UK website. Hill’s Pet Nutrition is voluntarily recalling select canned dog food products due to potentially elevated levels of vitamin D. While vitamin D is an essential nutrient for dogs, ingestion of elevated levels can lead to potential health issues depending on ...

Re: Barney has kidney failure Again

I do like to see lots of [hippo] at the start of a thread. Sorry to hear about Barney's ill health. Happy to hear that he is home in a familiar environment. Fingers and paws crossed that the vet can made a final diagnosis and Barney will bounce back and be on the road to recovery.

7 Vets discuss the merits of raw feeding

This video popped up on my Youtube channel and I thought it would be worth sharing. 7 Vets give their take on feeding dogs raw or specie specific food. My boys are both raw fed and thrive on it. I use Nutriment who provide me with a complete meal. So, no messing around with raw meat and veggies in t...

Re: Rosie and Edie go on RAW

Dean, is there a reason why you only use turkey and chicken? There's also lamb, duck, salmon and beef. I suspect the lamb and duck are fattier. I know the beef is smelly (the tripe I think) and the salmon I'm told is mushy. Also, do I need to give anything else? small bones like lamb ribs to knaw o...

Re: Rosie and Edie go on RAW

Now you have me worried Alison - my expectations were for smaller solid poos - am I wrong? No, their poos will be tiny in comparison. Most people think their dogs are constipated when they first switch to raw as the poo can be quite hard and like small pellets. It's so easy to pick up. If you have ...

Re: Barnaby Sparkle

Lisa, I am so sorry to hear that Barnaby has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. You've always delighted us with his photo's on the forum and we are going to miss his wonderful beard and energy. They certainly do live a big void in our lives. Take care of yourself and the other 2.

Re: Schnauzer mugs for Christmas

Spotted this cushion in M&S over the weekend. I was lucky that I came home without one.

Not for me, I don't want cropped ears and tails :-s
Lol. Jolyon spotted a name board in a shop the other day that he quite fancied. I turned round to him and said I'm not having an American Schnauzer in the house. He's got pointy ears and no tail.

I love my boys floppy ears and waggy tails.

Re: Liver shunt, pancreatitis and crystals in kidneys

For those of you that also have a dog prone to pancreatitis, Nutriment have introduced a new range of raw "support" food. Some of the products are low in fat, which will help with pancreatitis and some will be good for dogs recovering from surgery and other ailments. Unfortunately, it was too late f...

Re: Liver shunt, pancreatitis and crystals in kidneys

Hi James and Katherine My thoughts are with you in this difficult time. I hope they manage to get the pancreatitis under control so that the vet can check the liver shunt. I still have vivid memories of saying goodbye to Watson every time he went for surgery. Never knowing whether you would see him ...

Re: Liver shunt, pancreatitis and crystals in kidneys

Our Watson had a liver shunt, which led to crystals in his bladder. This in turn causes blockages in his penis and he had to undergo a number of operations to repair the shunt. We were fortunate that the shunt was external and the vet (Royal Veterinary College in Potters Bar) was able to shut it off...
