Maddie Smith saw her cat, Ruby, behave strangely and assumed it was from the cold weather. After she returned from work that night, Ruby's condition had deteriorated to the point where she could no longer walk, eat or drink, and had trouble seeing and hearing. Mrs. Smith took her to a vet who said she was suffering from brain swelling due to sodium poisoning. A veterinarian has issued a warning to pet owners after a cat was nearly killed after licking a Himalayan salt lamp in New Zealand (stock photo) Sodium poisoning can be life threatening for pets, with symptoms such as seizures, vomiting, diarrhea and loss of coordination. Himalayan salt lamps are a common item in many households, and pet owners are warned to keep an eye on their pets because the lights can be tempting to animals.

  9. French Bulldog

    The results of a Google search may be of interest: Pugs are believed to have originated in the Orient, namely China, where they were documented by Confucius as early as 551 BC. We also know that the common forbearers for the Pug are the Pekingese and the Lion Dog. Pugs (or Lo-Sze which is an early name for pug) were considered prized possessions by Chinese emperors. The French Bulldog is a breed of domestic dog. In the 1800s, they were the result of a cross between English Bulldogs imported from England and local ratters in Paris, France. http://www.frenchbulldogsouioui.com/history-of-the-french-bul.asp and scroll down to the 2nd paragraph in this link http://www.bulldoginformation.com/pug.html

    O I am sorry Bec. Daisy was always a fixture on Dogz and I for one shall miss hearing about her. Goodbye sweet Daisy and have such a great time showing with all the other besties over the bridge how it is done xx
  11. Thanks Leac but she is on meds to prevent struvite crystals and must have a low magnesium diet, the Ascophyllum nodosum (which is Simply Seaweed) showed high magnesium. By the way it is much better to buy the Ascophyllum nodosum as kelp powder...same stuff without the advertising blurb and a fraction of the cost https://au.iherb.com/pr/Starwest-Botanicals-Organic-Kelp-Powder-1-lb-453-6-g/22573

    Thanks Teddy, I will have a look in the reject shops, in the mean-time I have fastened the top using two pieces of pine cover-strips held together with some little G clamps, it's ugly but seems to be working ok
  14. tried the electric brush but, believe me, it wasn't successful, the dogs thought it was a growly monster in their mouths and had mini tanties
