  1. The important thing is that protein is high quality and easy for the body to deal with, raw is just that, less taxing on the organs than processed foods. The high moisture content of raw is also a very positive thing.
  2. Vet Wrap, Coban or Rip Rap all readily available online or from horse supply places, stock feeds etc.
  3. Leading Raw is made by Big Dog pet Foods in Qld it is an excellent product as are the Big Dog branded products. I use both on a regular basis.
  4. Good nourishing food several times a day, no need for junky additives like cereals and such. Chicken portions, lamb necks, lamb flaps, good quality fresh meats or a premium quality pref grain free dog food. Keep it simple and nourishing. Healthy nourishing additives like lambs hearts, chicken hearts, chicken livers etc can help tempt if the dog is a bit reluctant.
  5. Whilst Neuticals are relatively new to the scene here, replacing testicles with prosthetics (normally the ones manufactured for human children) has been going on for many years to enable monorchid dogs to be shown (against the rules of course). Personally I don't understand the desire to use them in a pet dog, it must be a boy thing.
  6. Probably the closest he gets to real cows is an artificial vagina, I understand he is a "collected" sire.
  7. Guess my male dogs missed this memo :laugh: Mine too, inappropriate marking, humping and other bad behaviours are TRAINING and management issues. Always amazes me that people think lopping off a dogs testicles will save them any effort.
  8. If you do not treat the environment you will not get a good result. The Comfortis will be killing the fleas, but newly hatched fleas will be jumping on the dog and they are the ones you will be seeing. You have to treat your house and yard.
  9. Has the blade been cleaned and oiled? Has the blade ever been sharpened? If not it probably needs to be sharpened and if your clippers have some age on them maybe they need a service and possibly the blade drive lever replaced.
  10. There are temporary colours available that you simply apply and then dry off with a the hair dryer, Critter Colour is one brand. Dyex is great but long lasting, as is Pet Esthe and Opawz . Both excellent for colouring but have to be processed then rinsed. Chalks and pastes are good for temporary designs, Opawz make a temp paste as well. They are applied then dried off not rinsed.
  11. Have you tested this ? I have had resource guarder who were excellent working gundogs.
  12. The antibiotic could well be the problem, however if it does return I would lose the kibble or switch to grain free if the one you are currently using isn't.I find that washing the paws in ACV solution or Malaseb, if you wish, also helps with yeast as they can transfer the yeast by scratching their ears, licking their paws etc. So treating both areas can help.
  13. Wax and yeast are two different things, Yeast needs to be treated. Of course the cause needs to be treated as well. We are talking about treating a dog with yeast. :)
  14. Malaseb 1:30 is often prescribed as a an ear flush for Malassezia (yeast), it is off label but is widely used and prescribed.
  15. The only PB Dachs I've encountered with dicky backs have been overweight and unfit. Like any breed when they are popular people breed for greed and with little care, the quality of the population drops Vets see more issues because they see more badly bred ones. I have elederly Dachy grooming clients that are in their teens and rarely see the Vet, well bred and still fit though :)
