  1. Best option is to contact breeders directly and ask about their dogs, their longevity etc. Sorry to hear about your dobes
  2. How often should 3wk old puppies be fed by mum? (How many hours between each feed) bitch has plenty of milk.
  3. For those who don't worm their pregnant bitches, have you had an adverse reaction in the past? I have a bitch 6weeks pregnant, have been advised by vet to worm at 6wks, however have read many varying opinions on if and when to worm when pregnant.
  4. For those breeders that don't worm during pregnancy, can I ask why? Have you had a bad experience? I have a 6week pregnant bitch, vet has advised to worm. Have heard mixed opinions from breeders on whether to worm or not.
  5. I've used Crystal white on my Bernese whites and am really happy with it :)
  6. Where in Melbourne can you buy raw goat, horse, venison and rabbit for dogs? Thanks in advance :)
  7. will the show be just near the library (is that the best place to park?) or is it further down Henry street? :) Thanks
  8. Thinking of buying a new Toledo in the next few months. Did a search on DOL and have read a lot of comments about Toledos leaking through the wirly birds and also water spraying up through the vents when the road is wet. Can anyone that has bought one in the past few years confirm if this is still happening or if these problems no longer exist! Thanks :)
  9. CavNrott: I am going to take him to a Specialist, that is why I am asking for recommendations :)I understand the difference between a specialist and GP vet.
  10. Thanks everyone for your recommendations, much appreciated.
  11. Showdog- they are not considering anything apart from Elbow Dysplasia. They see he is sore in his neck and I question it but they brush it off or say anything in his neck would be secondary to his elbow. I have queried the neck with the specialist and the vet multiple times but I am wasting my time.
  12. no. After the CT the specialist said we had the green light from ED. 2 weeks later at our revisit (dog still lame) he said we need to start strongly considering ED as possibility. If no improvement by next revisit, he said would need to consider elbow arthroscopy to check if the CT missed something. They have diagnosed him with ED and haven't looked into other possibilities and aren't considering anything else, even though since day 1 I have been mentioning his neck.
  13. nope distance is not an issue, not in this case!!
  14. I have a young dog (9months) who has a 4month history of right fore lameness. We are relocating to Melbourne soon and I am seeking a specialist people can recommend we see? He originally looked a bit tight when moving so we had a Bowen Therapy and he came up lame AFTER the session. With 2 more sessions he didn't improve. He has pain in his neck and won't hold it up all the way. When you apply pressure to certain areas of his neck, his right front leg raises. Chiro, bowen therapist both identified this area as an issue. We have seen our regular vet and a specialist, had xrays, CT scan done of both elbows/shoulders and nothing has been diagnosed. 2months of anti inflammatories , a course of cartrophen and strict rest made no improvement. We also tried acupuncture, massage, and more recently dry needling/manipulation, which is the only thing that has helped. Vet/specialist suspect Elbow Dysplasia mostly based on his breed , however aren't willing to investigate his neck pain. They recommend elbow arthroscopy which I'm hesitant to do with no evidence we will find anything! We will need to see someone when we move to VIC , so recommendations are appreciated!
