  1. A strange puppy Tale. (Not tail)

    Sounds like an upset tummy from the stress of a new home and new diet. Because he is so young not eating like that can make a puppy go down hill very quickly. You would have seen a very upset tummy if it was parvo. Puppy is too young for 'walks' btw. Even when his vaccinations are finished don't go walking long distances. Do very short walks more for socialisation than exercise.
  2. Stage 3 Renal Failure

    You could maybe try the Pediasure if she is wanting milk. I use it when Amber is really poorly. It is for sick children. Only get the vanilla one. I don't know if it is suitable for a dog with Kidney disease but did find it as a suggestion for kids with kidney disease. It has easily absorbed proteins which give the organs a break whilst supplying nutrients. I use this as a meal btw. https://www.chemistwarehouse.com.au/buy/72519/pediasure-vanilla-850g Have you tried the baby food? I get the Raffetty ones in the veggie flavours. https://www.raffertysgarden.com.au/baby-food-products/4-month-baby-food/pumpkin-apple-sweetcorn
  3. Stage 3 Renal Failure

    Sorry to hear this Sheena. Amber has always eaten her Hills food ok. I squirt a bit of baby food over it to make it a bit more interesting.
  4. Sheltie Decendant

    Really? Strange that they passed out MY phone number to someone then.
  5. Sheltie Decendant

    Dogs Victoria might be able to help. The passed on my phone number to someone in the same sort of situation. The Sheltie Club seem pretty good at helping though. They just helped my Mum find a dog.
  6. Sheltie puppy

    Mum got an older Sheltie girl from a breeder yesterday. Which is what I wanted her to do rather than a puppy. She had found a breeder she liked but the matings didn't work out. New doggie is going well and Mum is happy.
  7. How do you prevent this?

    You can get this plastic stuff that has holes in it and sort of feels sticky. I've used that before. Not sure it would stand up to really rough play. Maybe worth a try? This stuff - https://www.rugsandstuff.co.uk/premium-hard-floor-rug-gripper-anti-slip-underlay-ako-profilo-109-p.asp I got some from Bunnings a while ago to put on a shelf in a shower that was sloped too much and shampoo bottles just fell off!
  8. She was on a comparable food prior, maybe slightly less protein but fish and grainfree. She has also had the Prime Kangaroo dry with no problems. She has had all sorts of different brands and I haven't had a problem with her before. She seems fine thanks.
  9. I actually took the food back today. The shop said that they have had other cases of it causing diarrhea. They said that Prime had said that the formula was too rich and that was what was causing upset stomachs. Hopefully Poppy will be ok. She seems fine.
  10. That is interesting as I just started a bag of the Prime Salmon this week and Poppy has a upset stomach. I don't normally have issues when I change food for her.
  11. Fly Snapping after eating

    So a smaller, lower protein meal and she isn't doing the snapping? And a higher protein, bigger meal and she air snaps? That isn't a habit. I would be getting a second opinion.
  12. Sheltie puppy

    No worries. She even found this site and the breeder listings! She doesn't know I post here, lol Was asking if breeders listed here can be trusted! She has had a sheltie before. A nice little dog that she rescued. Last 3 dogs have been rehomes or rescues so I guess she wants a puppy this time. I think she would take a younger genuine re-home.
  13. Sheltie puppy

    She called the breed club and got a list of names. I am looking for personal recommendations, or not.
  14. Sheltie puppy

    Anyone? She has called the sheltie club and even found this site! But she called asking for recommendations.
  15. Sheltie puppy

    My Mum is looking for a sheltie puppy. Any recommendations? Breeders to steer clear of? She is in Warrnambool.
