  1. Thank you very much for your informative answer. I just did a Google search found an online pet pharmacy that sells liquid Meloxicam for dogs 100ml for $54. There will be another Vet visit to re-check my dog's urine sample before renewing scrip & the Vet will also charge to write a scrip & then there is postage. However, I still think $54 will be a good saving over $120.00 My decision to continue use is based on previous experience, with another dog and the fact that my breed averages 14 -15 years of life. My current dog is 13 years of age & to date, (touch wood), has had no o
  2. Please forgive me as I do not mean to offend. However, I am NOT looking for advice on dosage nor on the pros & cons of treatment with Meloxicam vs. other treatments. I AM looking for wholesale or reduced price availability of Meloxicam in 100 ML or larger IF available. Thank you
  3. Hi All Just wondering ..Do any of you know if Meloxicam for dogs is available wholesale? Just paid $120.00 for a 100ml tube at the Vet. My (large breed), much loved, 13 year old has developed stiffness in rear knees & will be on it for the rest of her life. Thank you!!
  4. I will be travelling/flying to QLD. for The Poodle National Obedience Trial & Poodle National Conformation Show in August. I am totally unfamiliar with the area. The show will be held at Dogs Qld. Dogs Sports ground in Durack. I am looking for a dog friendly motel or cabin (or other), (that will allow dogs INSIDE) I prefer more up market if possible. I would be most grateful for suggestions. Please feel free to E Mail me privately at [email protected] THANK YOU!!!

  7. Just wondering if anyone knows where to buy solid coloured VELCRO Puppy I.D. collars size medium to large I re-ordered some recently, from a supplier I have used successfully in the past, My fault as I did not read their latest ad carefully & got sent paper ones with stripes & designs which is not what I am looking for. Thanks in advance!
  8. I'm sure my much loved & astonishingly intelligent, Belgian Shepherd, CH. Nordenstamm Zara C.D. R.E. and her breeder, INTL. Australian, German & Dutch, Schutzhund Judge, Jens Kollenberg, Nordenstamm Malinois, will have a very good time together on the Gold Coast, over the next few months. Jens's goal/ aim is, (at this stage) to have ZARA ready for B.H. and I.P.O.1 competition at the Australian Schutzhund Nationals, in Adelaide in August. MY BRAG While training & competing with me in Melbourne, "ZARA" has been a wiz kid, gaining 6 A.N.K.C. titles before the age of 18 months, sever

  11. VER well done from what I understand Agility in NZ is even more difficult than it is in OZ, where it has become IMHO a sport for professionals You must be A VERY good team!!
  12. Thanks Sue What Zara needs is a full time job, 24 hours a day 7 days a week Instead of "you complete me" I tell her "you deplete me" LOL
  13. Congratulations to Naughty Nina, Strauss & Cider. How about I change my Malinois name to Zooming Zara?
  14. Congratulations to you too! Well done. A spectator commented that "too many dogs can not wait to LEAVE the ring" & that "I should be grateful my dogs pull me INTO the ring & escape to race directly to me IN the ring, .....sigh....
  15. Left home at 5:AM for a beautiful day & a wonderfully organised Obedience & Rally Obedience Trial in the Macedon Ranges. Such friendly people, great Judges GREAT BBQ including scrumptious egg brekkie rolls, my favourite veggie burgers & yummy cupcakes with the club logo etched into the icing This trial is held on a lovely venue. My 16 month old Belgian Shepherd (Malinois), Nordenstamm Zara CCD RE attained her C.D./Novice title today with 195/200 & 2nd place. My 19 month old Standard Poodle "Daisy" also scored 195 in Novice for 3rd place. This was 16 month old Belgian Malino
  16. I was thrilled for you & Waldo ! I know several bouts of lameness caused delay in your training program over the past year. I think you & Waldo made a lovely team & looked absolutely gorgeous in Winner of Winners run offs He is a credit to your kind patient handling & training. Well done!
  17. Thank you to nekbet who saved me from being lost after taking the wrong turn in Geelong at 6:45 AM After I woke her up, She talked me to the club via Mobile Phone on Speaker It was wonderful to meet nekbet & her handsome male Malinois at the trial Geelong put on a fabulous trial today. The SUN shone!!!!! Food was plentiful, homemade & delicious. The endlessly hardworking volunteers who make these trials possible are the unsung heroes of the dog world! My young daisy Poodle scored 100/100 in her 1st trial (CCD). Daisys Granny VIOLET at almost 12 years old, managed 2 decent pass
  18. Anyone know what the grounds are like after all this rain? I am entered SUNDAY Thanks!
  19. Nekbet.. Thanks so very much for your kindness & assistance I have a Poodle entered in UDX & my 12 month old Malinois in her very first CCD trial. I have also entered the 1st Rally O Trial with my almost 12 YEAR old Poodle, "Violet" Please introduce yourself if you have time.
  20. I would appreciate it if someone can give me up to date directions to GEELONG Obedience Club from City Centre Exit off Prices Fwy.. I will be coming FROM Melbourne & I will be taking the City Centre Exit. From what I can gather, since I have been there last, several years ago, a bridge has been built, & the Road has just very recently had a name change to Gun Dog Lane (was Breakwater Road). Gun Dog Lane does not show up on any maps. My GPS wants a Street address so no help at all. Please P.M. me on [email protected] THANK YOU!!
  21. If a bitch starts going into season at a very inconvenient time i.e., just before a big show, or at a time when the chosen stud dog is not available, is there a way to stop/postpone the season? If so, 1)how far into the season can that be done 2) how is it done & what is the approximate cost 3)Will postponing a season affect the future fertility/hormones in some way? 4) how soon will the bitch go into season again & will it be a "normal" season 5) are there any negative side effects Thanks in advance for those who may be experienced in this area
  22. In our earlier years I corrected and punished her a fair bit. Not that I physically hurt her, more so pulling on the lead, verbal punishment ect. but that seems to of scared her enough. I think that could be a big part of it. Now she just seems a little on edge in class. I don't use any punishment on her right now, I think that would make everything worse. Thanks for the help! I will definitely try to give her a lot of breaks during class It sounds like you have a very intelligent, sensitive dog who adores you & wants to please you. You have, in good faith, just done what you were to
  23. very worrying! I caught the end of a Channel 7 news story tonight. Apparently someone in a white 4 wheel drive whistled at homes to check for dogs, then to indicate where they were, marked front fence with white chalk, baited the dogs & then after dark the offender returned took the 2 drugged or dead dogs & then threw them from his/her 4WD witnessed by an onlooker. Has anyone else heard this news story? If so, where did this take place & is this a serial offender?
