  1. I don't feed a raw diet but certainly agree with both replies! juliatee
  2. Did anyone see this last week and their comments about raw dog food I.e. That it can cause bacterial infections. Anyone have anything to say??!!! juliatee
  3. Nope, don't have any of that. But it was made in a pottery in Yorkshire!,
  4. She was always a princess and now she's older she is a bitter of a diva!!
  5. I know what gypsymums means about dogs remembering things. My dog developed "bowl horror " a few months ago. And refused to eat out of the bowls she has used all her life. I have no real idea why except that one morning there was an open cupboard door just by where she eats and something fell out onto the floor just by her. I tried different old dog bowls that I had but nothing would do. Now she eats off a dinner plate if you please. I suspect it is easier for her as the food is more spread out and easier for her to pick up and/or see. She is eating better now thankfully. Am considering giving her three smaller feeds a day instead of the normal two. Might be easier on her old tummy. Anyon any thoughts on this. Juliatee
  6. Help needed please! My elderly spaniel bitch is currently getting over a stomach upset. And eating rice and chicken nature diet and scrambled egg. Prior to that she was on a diet of Wafcol sensitive with a bit of Chappie and cooked veg and she was doing really well and then suddenly got really fussy about everything. First it was the Wafcol which she started to leave so I gradually changed over to James Wellbeloved and then it was the Chappie. Now she won't even look at any kibble even if it is soaked. I can't feed her a convalescent diet forever so I would be grateful for any advice. Cheers Juliatee
  7. My 13 year old spayed spaniel bitch has been leaking urine and for the past few weeks propalin syrup has worked fine. She is now leaking again and I shall be going to the vet in the next few days. Anyone had any luck with any other treatment? She is leaking rather than having accidents, Thanks, Juliatee
  8. Tripe sticks! Also I have a large green plastic dish with large knobles sticking up from it! If I am going out for any length of time I put dog meat, yoghurt, anything you can think of between these knob less and keeps her busy for awhile. The idea is that it resembles eating from a bony carcass. For the life of me I can't remember what it is called but you would probably find it under interactive pet toys on Google. Juliatee
  9. Hi everyone, I have been aware that my elderly spaniel bitch has been drinking more than usual so I took her to the vet. The results of a blood test that he took were that her kidney results were just within normal parameter but she showed a high ALT(?) reading. She is going in for a ACTH stem test next week as vet thinks she may have cushings disease. This appears to be easily treated but needless to say I am concerned it could be something else far worse. Anybody have Any ideas, and any advice about signs to watch for with cushings or cancer. So far she seems well but just slower on walks which are getting gradually shorter. She has arthritic hips and has Meloxidyl every other day. Vet happy that her kidneys can cope with this. I bought her a memory foam bed some time ago but will she look at it? Sometimes but prefers her beanie bag!, Happy Christmas to you all Juliatee
  10. I started my spaniel,on both Yumove and Yumega when she was about seven. I think it helped keep arthritis at bay although she has some in her left hip now at 13. They are available from Lintbells, and if you join their club, no fee, you get a bit of a discount and they often have fairly significant sales. Might be cheaper than the vets.
  11. Really sorry if I upset you Lurcherman and I know what you mean about some having no bond. A friend of mine has a young collie that hasn't bonded with her and she is really upset because the dog loves the rest of us! She was very hard on her when she was a baby and gave her little affection wanting her to be the most obedient dog on the planet. Whether that is the reason we will never know. All my dogs have been wonderful and I miss them all still as I can tell you still do. Sorry, Juliatee
  12. They are all the best dog you will ever own. How can one be better than another, they are all different and all magical! Juliatee
  13. Chocolate is very toxic to dogs but wOld have thought if it was three weeks prior it would have showed before now, and the paper would have passed through. Thinks it's Elmos kitchen! Cheers Juliatee
  14. Sounds ominous. Change vet. You could try Logic diarstop paste but really under advice from a vet. As to diet I had a lot of good advice from St. Elmos kitchen , they have a website. She is costly but her suggestions made all the difference to my dog. Vets aren't nutrtiinists. All the best Juliatee
  15. As I understand it from Farming Today on Radio 4 and a story line sometime ago on the Archers dog owners should pick up dog poo even in the middle of nowhere as the Neospora gets into cattle and sheep this way thus infecting the animals that eat grass around the affecting poop and then gets into the food chain. Very worrying. I don't think this is publicised nearly enough. Am I right about this, Juliatee
