  1. Wow. I can't imagine not being super excited to continue the socialisation and training you've started with the pups!
  2. Thanks pers! I had no idea charcoal could do that.
  3. My dog has had green poo for a few days. Dark emerald green poo. The size and consistency is normal (small and firm), it's just a really odd colour! At first I thought it was caused by the green tripe he had as part of his dinner, but he hasn't had any for a few days now and the poo is still green. He's raw fed and his food doesn't have any dyes in it. The only new thing he's had to eat recently are some baked biscuits that contain activated charcoal. Would that cause the green? I'm certain it's not from a bait of any kind, because we have none, and if it was he'd be pretty sick by now surely. He's due for a cartrophen injection, so I'll ask the vet, but does anyone have any idea what could be causing this??
  4. I was at work grooming today. We have aircon and the dogs were washed in lukewarm water and blow dried. We don't use heated dryers anyway. One client who was booked in today cancelled. Said it was too hot to get her dog groomed; she was going to the beach instead
  5. Yeah I groom one that has a black spot on her side.
  6. I bought my 14 year old arthritic dog a memory foam bolster bed from Costco a couple of weeks ago. It's excellent. I can lie on it without the foam squashing down until I can feel the floor like with other dog beds. Spence absolutely loves it. He had started getting restless at night and I'd find him asleep in different random places in the morning, but now he stays on his bed all night. It's big enough to fit two westies with room left over. For the laundry I'd go with HW's suggestion. That's Spencer's outside set up.
  7. Blackburn Animal Hospital. A few of our clients have had their dogs anal glands removed there. My boss's pug cross had his removed last year there too. Not sure on price.
  8. Yep. My dog has been having cartrophen injections for about three years and was recently prescribed Meloxicam as well. For arthritis in his hips. Th combination seems to be working better for him than the cartrophen alone.
  9. I feed raw once a day in the late arvo/early evening. I only feed enough to keep my dog lean and he never acts like he's starving or desperate for food during the day.
  10. Yes people have a weird way of describing what they want sometimes. Just last week I had someone with a kelpie ask for a "bath and clip". When I said kelpies don't need clipping, he got all confused and it turned out he meant a nail trim! I ALWAYS check and double check what owners want me to do with their dog!
  11. Dammit that's probably why mine doesn't fit as well as I'd hoped. I was too lazy to measure and thought Border Collie x = medium.
