  1. I had my dog on apoquel. Expensive but it helped a bit. What completely solved all my allergy issues however was putting my dogs on a raw diet.
  2. The partner would be staying elsewhere until he showed he could act like an adult with a brain. He obviously wasn't thinking/drunk so he should not be trusted around the puppy.
  3. Still got at least 3 more weeks before peak season in Vic ends. Until summer ends though most places are still chockers on weekends.
  4. You need to call pet transport companies for quotes.
  5. Ohh it is. We call it puppy popcorn here as its so fluffy. Its not cheap but its so good, super stinky and puppy friendly. Prime 100 rolls were what I came here to suggest. My puppy is nearly 5 months and only now is he able to stomach liver treats without getting sick and he's on a raw diet. We use prime 100 and tripe for training, or the love em puppy treats.
  6. Kozmicus (not sure on spelling) Hubertus, Graebrook are just a few. Like most breeds there's not many at the moment. Kozmicus isn't breeding for 12 months, they are awesome though. Kenoz/Kenishka in Tassie is where I got my old boy from.
  7. I'd get them medium I'd love to know where you are getting them, I need two as well.
  8. When Diesel had Bowen a free his back injury, the improvement was phenomenal. When Diesel was having a break, she watched Bundy run around the yard, then stop to cough and eat grass. He had been doing that for months and we just thought he was weird. She immediately said that something was wrong (I don't remember). I agreed to get Bundy treated and she did a couple of things to him and his entire posture and mood changed. Since that day he has never done those behaviours together again. I've had Bowen a number of times done to me at the same time and had really great results with one lady and not so much with someone else.
  9. We can definitely organise something He's a whippet.
  10. Maisie is gorgeous! If things settle soon I'll have somedoggy in 5 weeks who would love a puppy pal he will be a little bigger though. How did you end up getting her here?
  11. Honestly if you like vizslas,one from the right breeder could be doable. My Viz is the laziest cruisest soul to grace this earth, if he has his people he is cool to explore or just hang at home. We joke the breeder broke the mould with him, she calls him 'speshul' and he's 10 now lol. He lives to sleep. He is my second and will probably be my last because he is so awesome. Otherwise I think you'd definitely be on the mark with a spaniel of some sort.
  12. Does it smell? He could have blocked anal glands maybe
  13. Good luck trying to police the desexing, you can't make someone do it even if they agree to it. There's been numerous threads here about desexing contracts and people not following them and there's nothing you can do.
  14. When I lived in Melbourne I used Southern Animal Health for my dogs. They didn't need that procedure but all the vets we saw were very knowledgeable and experienced, by far one of the best vet clinics I've used. Worth giving them a call for a chat if you are considering them.
  15. I used a guy in Cranbourne as do a few other locals. PM me if you want his details, he and our Bowen lady (who comes to us so will probably go to you too) changed our kelpies life and probably saved it to be honest after he compressed nerves in his spine.
  16. Its possible your dog has been scratching in that area. They should heal on their own but if they get worse or you notice your dog licking or scratching excessively I'd go to the vet.
  17. No they don't get a diet version (there isn't one) but just be sensible. They don't get them multiple times a day every single day of the year, just half or a whole one each on really hot days when it's more than one in a row when I can see they are boiling and over it. Our local IGA sells bones frozen but can't see why you can't do it yourself.
  18. Zooper Doopers. Our 12yo Kelpie is really struggling in this heat, to the point his back end is fairly wobbly (12 months post compressed nerves in his spine) and we find the sugar gives him a bit of a boost as he has lost his appetite the past few days. As they're frozen it really helps my two cool down. They get sick of plain ice blocks and chicken feet don't seem to help with cooling them down at the moment. He can mostly eat what he likes these days (within reason) and our younger pooch doesn't miss out either. On warm but not boiling hot days I'll buy them frozen chuck bones to eat, that's tomorrow's treat I think.
  19. The OP reads like they want the dog to go to East Timor, traveling via Australia not relocating here.
  20. We just feed plain iceblocks or frozen chicken feet. If they are looking a bit lethargic they get a zooper dooper for a sugar boost. Sometimes they'll go sit by the freezer to wait for a treat. It makes a big difference. Mine dont like cool mats and I've lost their cool coats so thats how we are managing them until we get new coats.
  21. I am pleased you phoned the RSPCA. It sounds like they are taking this seriously. The pup is lucky to have you on her side. Good luck.
  22. I just saw this, how is he going? If hes still struggling you are welcome to bring him to meet my boys, we have someone home nearly all the time at the moment so can possibly help.
  23. The only advice I can add, is BREATHE. Your posts show a great passion for wanting to learn, but you also need to know when to just step back, breathe and trust your judgement. Sometimes there can just be too much information. Your boy is lovely and labs can be decieving with their build. For an example of information overload, I have significant issues with my fish tank at the minute which are causing me crazy amounts of stress, i spoke to 3 different people in the last 24 hours. two gave similar information (one person I trust the other I don't) to someone I thought had *all* the answers. If I researched it, I'd be none the wiser (probably rocking in a corner) as it's an unusual issue, so I just had to stop, take a step back and trust my gut and weigh up what I feel is best. If that doesn't work, then I'll try something else. My point is, with things like this, you just have to roll with it, trial and error. No two dogs are the same. My mum and I both have vizslas, two completely different builds, and feeding needs. My boy gets up to 2 cups a day and still looks lean, my mum's girl looks like a whale on that much food now, yet a few years ago it was a different story, no matter how much she ate she was skinny (to us, but different vets had different opinions). You will learn what's normal for him and what isn't, I can tell in a glance now if mine are getting chubby or if it's just a bloat tummy that day, but it took time. Trust yourself a bit more, but if you still aren't confident, be guided by the breeder who knows the dogs.
