  1. how do you wash your dog face

    My dogs are so little that if I'm washing their faces I'm doing their whole body (with a shower hose) with my GSD, on the rare occasion he'd need a face wash I'd use a flannel or a wet wipe
  2. we used long grippy mats from bunnings in our hallway for when D was starting to slip and slide a bit -- didn't look great but was functional. we also got a large rug and used IKEA rug 'hold in place thingos' for his main traffic area
  3. Human hair conditioner

    yeah we have used human shower gel when my husband's dog shat on himself and I used to use my pantene knock off conditioner on my GSD - it won't kill her as a once off BUT if she's got tight curly hair you'll want to make sure you blow dry and brush her dry otherwise she'll matt up
  4. Ethical dilemma

    My little dog did her cruciate and I also look after a boxer who has done both -- our shared vet recommends less confinement in the healing process and both have had good progress so maybe chat with your vet more about having the dog roam the house/yard more freely when recovering
  5. This was Charlotte's bandage, it was so cute, but only on for a week - then another week of no walks and then 10min walks twice a day (increasing by 10min each week)
  6. I think little dogs recover better than big dogs from this surgery - my Shih Tzu x ruptured her cruciate on Xmas Day, she was booked in for surgery in early Jan but had anesthetic complications and then had the actual surgery on 13 January (including fixing a luxating patella) and is now back to hooning around and jumping of the bed (although I cringe everytime, vet said this is ok) - while she didn't go for walks she wasn't crated or contained in recovery either at the vet's recommendation which I was surprised about.
  7. Keeping water bowl spillage to a minimum

    for me it's not so much keeping the water in the bowl, it's keeping it in his mouth! This labrador seems to spill it out the sides of his mouth and doesn't finish swallowing while he's walking around the house. We keep a towel spread out around the bowl and then shuffle little bath mats around with our feet when he's finished drinking LOL
  8. Raw feeding storage

    That's a good idea! I find chicken breast leaks, beef and lamb or chicken bones not so much
  9. Raw feeding storage

    Just those freezer bags - yes they leak when defrosting but I just defrost them in a bowl to catch the liquid
  10. dogs and art and art galleries

    We were very keen to go - but Charlotte has not recovered from her cruciate surgery and is even bitchier than usual to people when she's being pushed in her pram. I'm going to the regular exhibition so hopefully will still hear about the dogs of Versailles CleoJ went not sure if she's still on DOL much eta: here's an article after the day: http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/canberra-life/dogs-dress-up-for-paws-for-art-at-national-gallery-of-australias-versailles-20170121-gtvzxq.html

  12. I think you should look at getting a house sitter or either boarding him at kennels or with another type of minding service where the dog goes to someone's home So sad to be left, essentially, all alone for that length of time.
