  1. I was feeding my 2 dogs BH grain free salmon and they seemed to thrive on it for a while and then I started a new bag and bam! I had to put plastic sheeting on my flooring because the diarrhoea was so bad it was just coming out on it’s own free will :/ it was horrible. Luckily the company I bought it from took it back ... now I feed them TOTW which they love. This happened about 2-3 years ago ... but I’m not sure what happened to the formula back then.
  2. Toilet Training

    I agree with Dogs and RP..... When I got my CKCS I had her trained fairly quickly, sometimes just like human babies some take longer than others.. I just got lucky. I hadn’t had a puppy for a few years before I got Lacey so I just winged it... I only had one exit to the backyard so fairly quickly she knew where to go when she wanted to go out.. I also gave her plenty of praise after she went , possibly went too overboard haha but she loved the attention and learnt quickly. I agree that you need to go back to basics.. good luck
  3. Genuine West Highland Terrier

    Scotland is on my to do list.. I’m so jealous lol. Have a lovely time

  5. Which kibble do you feed?

    I feed my dogs Taste of the Wild... they love this one, I rotate the flavours for variety.
  6. Pet Insurance - latest opinions please?

    I have a pet savings account ...... Lacey had a abscess on one of her anal glands over the weekend (typical) and it cost me just over $200 ... I could have waited until today but she has trouble expressing her glands so I wanted it done ASAP . I have never had pet insurance and I have had pets all my life ... I guess it’s like comparing oranges to lemons.
  7. The euthanasia process

    Thanks penrithabby for starting this post .... my Kelpie is 13 now and starting to show her age, and it’s been on my mind a lot lately how I will go about it.... she definitely shows me everyday that she is still a crazy puppy so she has a ways to go before that happens but it’s always great to plan these things. I will start enquiring soon who does this service around where I live.
  8. Taste of the wild dog food

    I feed my two dogs TotW and they are doing very well on it ... my 13 year old has a coat that gleams.
  9. Kaos

    I'm so sorry Teebs
  10. Sometimes bathing them too often can cause them to itch... unless he is getting muddy/ dusty a lot I would cut down the bathing. My dogs are due for a bath but they haven’t had one for about 4 months... they aren’t smelly either I would just brush him to make sure his coat is free of burrs etc.
  11. I use Dentipet... I get it from my Vetrinarian. I also use a toddler toothbrush because my CKCS has tiny teeth and I find a toddler brush a good size. What I do and it works for me ... I let them lick a tiny bit off the brush to get a bit of a taste and then I brush away, they love getting their teeth brushed.
  12. Old age and how do you cope?

    I have a Vet appointment for her in early May to do a repeat of blood screening so will ask about injections while I’m there.
  13. Old age and how do you cope?

    Sorry I just saw this! Thank you
  14. Cav grooming

    Lacey’s coat went woolly after she was desexed .... I trim under her feet every couple of weeks and check her every couple of days as she is a magnet for grass seeds and burrs :/ apart from that she is very easy to keep groomed.
