  1. Fly Snapping after eating

    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
  2. Fly Snapping after eating

    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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. Breeding Consecutive Heats

    Been doing some research into this "touchy" topic and would love to hear others thoughts . im under the belief that mother nature (the wild) dogs will breed every heat in a pack situation. Its only us who think its unethical to do so. ive read a scientific studies that showed a bitch who was bred every heat did much better then a bitch who bred every second heat. they dissected the uterus after they had bred the bitches and desexed them and found the ones the most damage to be the ones who bred every other heat. And the uterus of the one who bred every heat to be in fairly good condition. It said that a bitch who has a heat and doesnt whelp puppies doesnt have a cleaning out effect of the uterus (this is part what can cause pyo) also it said bitches who arent bred every heat are more prone to cancer,s pyo ad false pregnancies etc thoughts?
  9. 16 days old puppies Diarrhea

    puppies got given some scourban and are doing just fine. They did say "its been going around" and i had the mother at the vets a few days prior.
  10. 16 days old puppies Diarrhea

    theyre fine, very strong healthy active pups scourban has fixed them
  11. 16 days old puppies Diarrhea

    puppies are very strong active healthy puppies always very full from mum no loss of appetite or change in behaviour, but have the runs. If they didnt have the runs there would be no concern at all with them. anyways to bind them back as being only 16 days old they arent eating only off mum. who is on a plain diet of dry food and mince.
  12. exporting pets overseas

    Thank you , its an added $135 but a friend of mine suggested to do it anyways as its a bull breeds dog going to a country where BSL is high so any proof of its breed would be handy to have
