  1. Genuine West Highland Terrier

    Scotland is on my to do list.. I’m so jealous lol. Have a lovely time
  2. .

  3. Which kibble do you feed?

    I feed my dogs Taste of the Wild... they love this one, I rotate the flavours for variety.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Kaos

    I'm so sorry Teebs
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Old age and how do you cope?

    Sorry I just saw this! Thank you
  12. 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.
  13. Old age and how do you cope?

    I tried a box and she wouldn’t have a bar of it i even tried to encourage her with treats but no she didn’t want to try. Its ok though.. she has a really nice thick matteress on the floor that she likes sleeping on.
  14. Old age and how do you cope?

    I have always been extra cuddly with Sasha as she is the oldest and we have a very close bond.. last night she wanted up on my bed so my housemate picked her up and put her on my bed and for a few minutes , I just laid next to her and buried my nose in her fur... it was one of many special moments we have shared over the years I have had her on Sasha’s blend for a few years and last year when she pulled a muscle in her neck she was given Carprofen tablets which I give her one if she needs it. Its her birthday on 28th March so I plan on spoiling her a bit lol. Meant to add... she still demands her daily walk even if it’s pouring with rain haha it’s just a 10 minute walk around the block.
