  1. He's gorgeous Kirislin. I'll put the name thinking cap on....
  2. Thanks for all the feedback, I'll have a look at those & pass them on. @Pucapo unfortunately it's not just as simple as having pet insurance. As snook has said, so many items aren't included, prices are jacked up with age, and the premiums are not something they can afford, but thanks for the suggestion
  3. My parents would love another dog in their life (the last one died a few years ago now), but while they are physically & mentally able to look after a dog, they can't afford expensive vet bills and so won't get one. I was wondering if there are any rescue groups that have "legacy dogs" or similar. Something like where someone leaves money in their will for the continued care of their pet. I think that would suit them perfectly - the parentals get a dog, the dog gets a wonderful home, and my parents don't have to stress about potential vet bills (they can cope with food & stuff). Any ideas?
  4. Another apoquel user here. My vet is fabulous, and we tried everything, did skin tests, did food elimination diets & nothing conclusive as an 'allergy' came up, although we eliminated food as an issue so it has to be environmental. The apoquel really helps, but I also have to keep him shaved (he's a Chinese Crested) and regularly bathed - any slip on my behalf & his itchies get worse.
  5. So sorry to hear this Perse. Beautiful Tallie-cat - rest in peace. You were well loved

  11. So sorry to hear this you must miss her. An empty house is a hard thing. Sending hugs
  12. So sorry to hear this TC. I felt & saw Fleming for a long time afterwards, and yep, I have the guilts for both of mine. Was it too early? Was it too late? Were they in pain & I didn't know? It's a terrible thing. Easier to say than do, but don't beat yourself up too much. Know that he was well loved, and you did the right thing by him. Sending hugs

  18. My mum (as a wildlife rescuer) used to defrost baby mice/rats in old margarine containers in the fridge. We learnt very quickly to check first to see if the butter was labelled by mum before opening it
  19. Yep, I've got an earth-worm roller. Thank doG it doesn't smell
  20. Enjoy this time with your beautiful girl, and big hugs to you both.
