  1. Unusual Cross-Breds

    My friend has a Staffy/Maltese. She's the size of a Maltese with the Maltese coat texture but she's brindle and has the exuberant Staffy temperament. Awesome little dog.
  2. Dog Harnesses - Best For Jogging?

    I use the Tailrunner harness and leash. Love how it has small bags that fit on the waist band to hold poo bags and phone etc. https://www.facebook.com/TailRunners/
  3. Puppy Refusing To Eat But Seen Vet Give Ok

    That's the first time I've heard of anything like that,it's really intriguing, wonder if you have any further reading material on additives and maternal immunity I could read. I'd appreciate that very much, knowledge is power.
  4. 4Cyte Joint Treatment

    My 11 year old ACD is on it and it's doing him a lot of good. He still loves running with me so it allows him to keep doing that comfortably - a slow easy 9km on soft trails last week with no issues or soreness. Better results for him in my experience than Joint Guard or Cartrophen injections. I know two other people who have used it with similarly good results, and one person who didn't find it very effective at all - but they didn't dose correctly. The one common theme is what a pain in the butt it is to dispense with that silly little long spoon and getting the right number of balls on it. I get my kids to do it so it no longer bothers me. I've been told there's a similar product for people, keen to try that one for my creaky joints.
  5. Handsfree Dog Walking Belts

    I use a Tailrunner leash and waistband, they have an option for a two dog model, haven't looked at it closely but it may suit your purposes. Aussie business too. https://www.facebook.com/TailRunners/
  6. Demodex Mites

    Interesting study - although Bravecto isn't registered for use against demodex mites, nothing to stop you using it for its flea and tick control properties, and see if it helps. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25881320
  7. Dachshund Racing

    This is a real hard core Doxie. 50k in 7 and a bit hours is better than most people could do.
  8. Might Seem A Stupid Question

    I recently euthanased a dog for a client. She wanted to be there for the dog closing his eyes, but didn't want to be there when he actually passed. We anaesthetised the dog in her arms and when he was fast asleep, she kissed him and left, then we gave him the euthanasia solution. That may be an option for you?
  9. A.i. Vets In Brisbane

    I've not dealt with Phil Thomas cos I don't breed, sorry. Just know of him as a reproductive specialist in a specialist practice. Have been to a few of his talks and he is very knowledgeable about all things reproductive so would expect he'd be competent at AI.
  10. A.i. Vets In Brisbane

    Phil Thomas from QVS would be a good starting contact. http://www.qldvetspecialists.com.au/reproduction
  11. Quick Vent Re People!

    At least they're at puppy pre-school, that's a good start.
  12. Anesthesia Free Dog Teeth Cleaning

    Not for me, thanks. Three of my four dogs have had a professional clean under anaesthesia, the fourth will be done early 2015. http://www.petmd.com/blogs/fullyvetted/2010/april/anesthesia_free_dentistry-7324
  13. Brisbane Behaviourist - Female Rivalry

    My friend had exactly the same issue with her two female kelpies, it was chaos and her husband was bitten trying to separate the warring dogs. Cam Day resolved the problem for them and the dogs are doing great, it's a much more harmonious household. He's doing a Brisbane North visit on Dec 10 and has reduced travelling fees on that day. Worth considering.
  14. I've known quite a few people to be very happy with Dr Inar Swift at QVS - http://www.qldvetspecialists.com.au/veterinarians
  15. Deceased Neighbours Dog

    Melinda, I'm on the northside of Brisbane and have two Whippies of my own, I can temporary foster care this dog if it means she stays out of a pound. I homeschool my kids and also work a lot from home so plenty of company for her. I have also fostered for rescue groups so not inexperienced. Feel free to pm me.
