  1. Ivermectin doesn't do tapeworm, or at least that's what my vet told me the other day when I got some.
  2. Fertility Vet

    In my breed that's completely normal. They don't come in season under 14mths old and I have plenty of girls that only come in once a year while others are around 8mths. Other lines in the same breed start at 9mths and then regularly 6mths after. Speak to your breeder and get to know what is normal for their dogs. The only one I've ever taken to a repro vet didn't come in till she was 5yrs old She was mated and whelped a normal litter. The vet could only tell me to just wait and see as there was nothing they could do about it. ETA greyhound people will tell you to find a good muscle man as there is supposedly a back manipulation that will help them come in season. I've never tried it so cant say if it is successful or not
  3. Italian Greyhounds

    And yet you're leaving them with me for a week ? What am I in for ? They better not teach my little angels any bad habits or I'll be forced to put then in with the greyhound pups
  4. Borzoi In The New Big W Denim Ad?

    I have done the odd ad with my IGs and greys. The IGs are not requested very often though
  5. New Welfare Regulations For Greyhounds

    Surely both the above are a move in the right direction albeit much overdue. I do not see our own Canine Councils implementing kennel inspections and core competencies before handing out licences
  6. New Welfare Regulations For Greyhounds

    Move towards all people that care for greyhounds at any stage of the lifecycle (until retirement) being registered with peak bodies; Introduce a tiered system of trainer licence types which stipulate how many greyhounds trainers are able to train; and Ongoing licensing by peak bodies to be subject to inspection and compliance with maintenance of facility standards. Inspection & compliance All facilities at which greyhounds are housed with licensed people, throughout their lifecycle, to be subject to regular inspection; and All new facilities/kennels to be compliant with relevant codes of practice

  13. Greyhound Industry On 7.30

    Havent had a chance to watch this yet (although I have read the transcript) as I was driving back from the races where I had two dog running. It was predictably one sided and as a racing participant I have no right of reply to the allegations aired on the programme. All I can say is what a croc. And anyone that believes the media will present a balanced view needs to do a bit more research. Lets remember a certain gardener who told the world oodles were fantastic and the public believed him and jumped on the oodle wagon. Dont believe everything you see and hear My link makes for some interesting reading about the filming of this segment
