  1. Not sure if they are still around, I’ve always used Liberty tables they are sturdy but fold down easily, they also have a built in handle that makes them easy to carry.
  2. Harness or Collar, what do you use for walks?

    I have never used one of these collars and honestly don’t know anything about them, I do know it was always on the dog (was a regular client) and I assume the vets were correct however there is always the possibility they weren’t.
  3. Harness or Collar, what do you use for walks?

    The vets assesssed it and it was a burn, I’ve seen a lot of things working with dogs but this was a first. This was probably about 10 years ago, I don’t know if the collars have changed much since then, I also don’t know if it was being used correctly.
  4. Harness or Collar, what do you use for walks?

    I guess humans can turn any device into something harmful, I lost track of the amount of customers with flat collars that were way too tight, harnesses fitted poorly and even put on twisted, abcessses caused by choke chains, head collars that had caused damage around the muzzle, even had an Airedale that had a hole burnt in his throat from a shock collar.
  5. Harness or Collar, what do you use for walks?

    One thing I’ve nevet understood is why prong collars are banned here when they are so much more gentle and less damaging than head collars, check chains and quite a few types of harnesses.
  6. Harness or Collar, what do you use for walks?

    We use a sporn easy fit harness, it’s nicely padded, doesn’t rub under the armpits or pull on the neck in any way. I personally dislike any head collar/halti type devices, check chains or no pull harnesses that squeeze under the armpits.
  7. Catapress

    Finally heard back late this arvo, they advised to give half an hour before food, tried it tonight and no vomiting!!! If that should fail then half morning half at night.
  8. Catapress

    Thanks, Rascal was very similar on Lovan, he was freaking out over every little sound, wouldn’t eat, didn’t want to leave our bed and was generally very depressed, was a really awful experience. I am waiting for the vets to call me back to advise what to do from here.
  9. Catapress

    I have been giving it with his meal as the vet suggested. it is working well for his anxiety but obviously not for his tummy. We have tried Lovan but he reacted really bad.
  10. Catapress

    We have been trialling Rascal on Catapress for his anxiety, it works really well except he vomits about 15-20 mins after taking it and looks queasy and unsettled for an hour or so after, I have trialled nights without it and he’s ok so I’m sure it’s the medication. Has anyone else used it and had this issue, did it resolve over time or did you stop using it?
  11. Kate Haines???

    Have sent you a PM
  12. Kate Haines???

    Rascal has somehow injured himself while we were out shopping, not sure what he’s done but it seems to be his back. I have given him a dose of Meloxicam but I think he needs to see a Chiro, the one we have used for the last few years is now too hard for me to easily get to. I have looked on the net and Kate Haines is the easiest to get to since she’s down the road from one of the hospitals my son goes to for appointments, I’ve never heard of her and just wanted some feedback of anyone that has used her or knows if she’s any good.
  13. Where to advertise

    It is a huge relief and honestly I don’t think he really ever fit in here properly, my cats are so happy not having him constantly chase them. As much as I love poodles and have owned them for 20 years I’ve come to realise unfortunately they are no longer suitable for our lifestyle.
  14. Where to advertise

    I know this is an older thread but I thought I would give it one last update. I have been staying in touch with Hugo’s new owner and he is doing amazing!!! She has an adult son with autism ( whom I met before Hugo went on trial) and Hugo adores him, he was so gentle and had a wonderful vibe about him, she also has a Mum in a nursing home so she takes Hugo in for visits, he gets to go to so many places, beaches, bush walks, holidays etc. the most perfect life. I want to say thank you to those of you that helped me with support and pointing me in the right direction to rehome him in the right way, I have done my fair share of rescue and rehome but when it’s your own dog it is so much harder.
