  1. What is the youngest you have used a stud dog.
  2. Age Balls should drop

    most likely getting ahead of myself .. i have a litter of 6 week old puppies and not all balls are down .. the pick boy has none and the others are sold but a mix of some with balls and some with 1 and 2 with none. i understand i need to give them alot more time but looking to put my mind at ease that im worrying too early ? dams brother retained both balls (1 of only 2 males other one was fine) dams first litter ALL boys had their balls at 6 weeks. any suggestions ... ive read to give zinc or vitamin e but struggling to find vitamin e powder that doesnt cost a milllion dollars for 500g.
  3. Importing semen from NZ

  4. Importing semen from NZ

  5. Importing semen from NZ

    my point is there is no quarantine or health tests required from NZ why does it cost to same to import from USA or UK ? i imported semen from USA 4 years ago it cost me less then its going to cost me to import from NZ. i would have thought NZ would have been not much difference then moving frozen semen around Australia, just a little but more cos of the further flight
  6. Fly Snapping after eating

    thank you just googled that and she shows no signs of any of those thing .. she is 100% happy fit healthy shiny happy dog .. and doesnt fly snap every time she eats.... she didnt respond to the tablets so weve put it down to habit, its fully controllable so no seizure etc present... if shes doing it shell stop when told too. i give her breakfast along side her puppy and she doesnt fly snap then, only at dinner time feed.
  7. Importing semen from NZ

    who has done this recently? what did you pay ? i was surprised to get quoted only a few $100 less then importing semen from UK & USA ?? why would you import from NZ when only slightly more u can go overseas ?
  8. Fly Snapping after eating

    He said if the cortisone didnt work its just a habit, she also licks her feet. Talking to other breeders it seems alot i spoke to had a dog that did the odd similar thing, feet licking, tail chewing, fly snapping, air licking.

    vet is not overly concerned has given cortisone to see if shes allergic to the food but has said the same as what i was thinking ... habit/ocd

    interesting researching some more and have come across vaccine side effects, one of them is neurological caused by the distemper part of the vaccination and it has reminded me that the same bitch reacted poorly to her puppy vaccine too ... got very sick.
  11. Fly Snapping after eating

    Weirdest thing of all too, ive changed her feeding, 1/2 cup morning an 1 cup at night (instead of 1 1/2 at night) she doesnt fly snap in the morning , only at night. Ive also changed the dry from a 32% protein to a 25% protein. She is being booked into the vet next week.
  12. Fly Snapping after eating

    well thats why i said above i thought it might be pregnancy related "reflux" like women get cos i know what it can be like when u get heart burn and it feels liek its in ur chest/throat/mouth and i thought it could be just how she was dealing with it. the puppies she had a re 12 weeks old and i only noticed yesterday she was still doing it or starting it again. she is due back on heat soon. i dont think it is food related cos she was fed that dry for a long time before the litter.
  13. Fly Snapping after eating

    No She was on a strict diet of her usual dry food and folate tablets while mated/preg/lactating. It only started once she was preg and she had never done it before and was fed the same thing before. since shes weaned the puppies shes not longer on folate and is still getting a dry food ( different but MUCH better quality) the first dry food is Chicken and duck and this dry food is Lamb. she never does it during the day or evening and only started it about 5-10 mins after eating and then it goes away later on.
  14. My bitch has just turned 2 years old and has been fine her whole life... she had her first litter a few months ago and towards the end of her pregnancy she started fly snapping after eating, i thought maybe as people get it maybe she was experiencing heart burn/indigestion and it would go away after the pups were born. She is still doing it She is eye screened all clear, so there is no issues with her eyes.... She doesnt do the seizure type movement she just looks at something then snaps at it. Its only after eating and goes away afterwards. has anyone else had this with thier dog and what was the treatment for it ? thanks
  15. Breeding Consecutive Heats

    yup ANKC rules on what WE do with OUR Dogs gotta love it yeh sorry i do mean just the once off, not that i would do more then 2 consecutive matings and rules say cant have 3 litters in 18 months. i know people who breed bitches every heat cos their heats are more then 6 months appart so the litters are being born 1-3 months outside the 3 in 18 months so they get away with it. my point on the wild is its natural for dogs to do so... might not be what they want but they do and they handle it just fine. in my opinion most people who i know who bitches end up having Pyo is because they havent mated them, very rarely have i heard bitches who have been bred get it ... yes they do i know but 90% of the time its bitches who have never been bred or they wait until 4+ for thier first litter
