  1. My dogs have always been fed Black Hawk along with other fresh stuff, but recently I changed them to MFM's Kangaroo & Lamb. Not sure if it is my imagination, & I havn't been able to get them weighed, but they both look like they are putting on heaps of weight. I have cut down on the eggs/sardines etc that I always put with the BH. Now they only get one or the other, not both with their meal. I am also cutting right back with the MFM's. Nothing else has changed, just their kibble. Anyone else noticed a weight increase on MFM's.
  2. Are prawn tails/carapaces ok?

    My dogs love the heads, but I roughly pull off the spiky bits & don't give them too many at a time
  3. I have been giving my two border collies Nexgard for about three years now....no reaction & have never in that time found any ticks on them even though we live out in the bush in a bad tick area. It is a monthly tablet.
  4. Sea weed & Dogs

    Thanks JRG. I just did a bit of a Google & a few sites refer to the dangers of dried seaweed (which is what they are eating)...here is just one quote:- Beware of Wild Sun-Dried Seaweed No type of seaweed is inherently unsafe, but the condition and preparation of the seaweed can have a huge impact on a dog's health. Dried, wild seaweed of the type commonly seen on beaches during high summer is not good for your pooch. The sun dries out the seaweed, causing it to shrink. Once digested, the seaweed will expand inside your pup's stomach, causing potentially fatal blockages. Does anybody else have a dog that eats seaweed???
  5. We spend a lot of time at the beach & my dogs have just this last couple of weeks started to eat the sea weed along the high tide mark. First one dog started doing it & now the other. Apart from making them really thirsty & their poos a bit sloppy, are they doing themselves any harm?? They really search it out
  6. I have a small patch of artificial grass down that I use as a pathway. I do know that it gets very very hot
  7. Thanks everyone...I have reported her to the FB Admin & she has been deleted
  8. She answered my PM with a request to email her...gave me an email address. Maybe I should inform the community group that it is a scam
  9. She has turned off comments on them, so I have PM'd her. I don't really expect a reply
  10. Home made menu

    Just fingernail size bits would send my dogs scooting when they were pups. They don't seem to have an issue with boiled or baked liver, just the dried stuff. Maybe because it is so concentrated.
  11. Blackhawk best?

    I was one of the original distributors for Black Hawk, way back when it was being packaged in plain white bags. My dogs have been on it for most of their life ( 8 to 9 years) as the main part of their diet. I also give them raw food, eggs, yogurt, sardines, mackerel, turkey necks, kangaroo mince, cooked left over vegies etc etc. I no longer distribute it but I have no intentions of changing to any other brand. It all depends on what you feel your dogs are doing well on...& for me...that is Black Hawk. Sometimes I buy them the lamb, but mostly it is the Fish & (sweet) Potato.

    Go easy on the dried liver treats as it can give pups the most terrible runs !!
  13. Someone in the Grafton NSW area is re-homing her pugs. Just putting it on here in case some Pug breeder may recognise them
  14. Microchipping Working Dog pups

    Yes that is what I thought too. I think the person selling these pups ( x kelpie x coolie) may be getting it mixed up with Council Registration Requirements. Impossible to tell some people things. Certainly don't want to start an argument with her
  15. Is it a requirement in NSW that working dog pups have to be microchipped before they can be sold or given away?? I thought all pups had to be, but maybe I am wrong
