  1. there is no excuse for not making sure your dog cannot attack anyone. But it happens way too often, there needs to be fines enforced hip pocket pain is long remembered
  2. before the days of dna profiling that is the exactly what breeders have always had to deal with. a few years ago I accidently put two carriers together. only after the puppies were born did I realise the error. in panic I had the entire litter profiles and to my amazement every puppy was completely clear???? the odds of being clear? 25%. yet Hawkesbury Ag college used a stallion the breeder had guaranteed all their horses were scids clear. They bred 16 of their mares to him and when all 16 were born it was discovered every single one of the 16 HAD INHERITED TWO COPIES were SCIDS and doomed to die. (SCIDS is the defect that two copies created the BOY IN THE PLASTIC BUBBLE) AGAIN each conception of two carriers the percentages were 25% clear, 50% carrier, 25% SCIDS and will die. The trouble is, every conception is a new throw of the dice. can come up all sixes or all 1's the facts are even in the case of there being no test for lethals the deaths of the lethals and the survivers being on average clears and carriers in the case of the arabian horse when the marker was found only 13% of the population were actually carriers. does your head in really
  3. "The whole, "I breed only what I need for show" is supposedly the only ethical stance a breeder can take which is nonsense and a great shame. People want a pet, once they could buy a pedigree pet AND it came with main papers. Originally breeders welcomed new members A few went on to become members and continue the breed. Not to today. The mental midgets populating DogsNSW have been parroting that since 1990's as the only way to proved your "ethical" and "responsible" the perfect dead end kennel. the other is "no ethical, responsible breeder breeds to supply pets" So what else can you expect but the self destruction of the ankc and actually any register whose members strive to be "ethical and responsible" unto extinction. frankly without the untracable backyarders the breeds will become extinct. Peta hasn't fractured them in when they boasted they expect their ever restrictive legislations will "achieve the extinction of the domestic dog and cat within this generation" Remember, now many decades now has it been law that all puppies and kittens must be microchipped before going to their new homes? How many pounds and rescues report over half all surrenders HAVE NO MICROCHIP? I rest my case.
  4. Blue Mountains Council should never have to "buy" back what was supplied by their residents who in good faith trusted rspca. Don't forget the two shops also funded by the residents and included with the pound that had funded the running of the pound for decades until the rspca sold them and pocketed the money from them too, then said they had to close the pound as could not afford the running costs now the shops that had funded it were sold. hypocritical monsters , pity it has taken decades for the mask to slip enough people can finally see what they really are. I was told by a rspca member the 2000 AGM elections is when the peta members gained control of the board. prior to that ANKC members could be members of the rspca, many served on committees. The writing went on the wall when one dual ankc/rspca member became Chairman of RNSWCC. Within days of the announcement of his election in the Daily Telegraph and the committee members (forget the exact year) he received a letter from the rspca cancelling his membership and returning his membership payment, ditto for another dual member named on the RNSWCC Board committee as well.
  5. No 106 goes straight to the heart of it. Bravo. Richard would be backing that vet 100 percent
  6. I do know how impossible it is to cut a 1mg alpro tablet into 1/4's to order the 1/2 mg tablets every chemist I have gone to had had to special order them in.
  7. yes they are the same risk factor. Bravecto was the first on the market . Simparica killed one I bred and almost killed another only weeks after I had warned their new owners not to use any with that in it. One forgot the warning, the other, shockingly their vet gave it to him when he went in for his second vaccination without even asking them. They thought he was giving him a treat, didn't realise what it was until they saw it listed on the bill. He began fitting that night. he took 3 months to recover and the fits finally stopped. At least with him they came and went. the other puppies brain was so damaged she had to be put down, neither vet admitted the drug was responsible and put the blame on the breeder. Despite them telling the vets I had warned them this drug family of isooxazoline has killed before
  8. I learned of its killing ability after a friends pups were treated. of the 7 pups in the litter 4 began fitting, two recovered in a few weeks the other two were still suffering problems months later, of them one recovered the other the vet put down as it was still unable to walk after two months, He called her some 4 months later to tell her that the Bravecto had killed over 20 of his clients dogs since he had been using it after its initial release and to never use it as he was now positive the drug is lethal to a percentage of dogs treated with it. If it crossed the blood brain barrier there is no antidote. I saw a chart that the FDA in America had compiled of death percentages of drugs used on dogs and how many had died to that date . think it had hit 7,000 and that is only the figures sent by the vets who did recognise the reason . I remember the company defending it by saying none of the dogs died from the drug, the vets put them down. which was correct. they were put down as their quality of life had become non existent even if they were alive
  9. in every instance I have seen a pup affected by the seizures, (in pups I had warned the new owners this product can cause seizures and or kill their pup) { In every pup affected there was just one dose . not overdosed as described in the experimental research} The vets who recommended it has in every instance told the owner the parents of the pup must have passed on epilepsy and to bill the breeder and demand a refund of the price of the "defective pup". none have admitted the drug is the cause .
  10. I am sure if you had applied to the tribunal, cant remember what its called but there is an ombudsman you can appeal to hear the case and make a ruling. that breeder would have had to give you your money back. I have been breeding since 1979 and a deposit is just that. Honestly no breeder I know would tell you the deposit is not refundable if circumstances caused you to change your mind. Well I would and so would my friends, its just a deposit of good faith to hold the pup until ready to pick up. ALSO never pay a deposit on an unborn pup, nor should you pay a deposit on a puppy under 4 weeks so much can go wrong under that age. Although I have had some so want to put a deposit on one under 4 weeks in which case they seem happy with a 50 refundable. but if for any reason you cannot go through with the purchase the only caveat I put is I will return the refund when the pup has been sold, as usually u have spent most of available funds raising them . Not one of us would want a puppy to go to someone who has for whatever reason no longer wants it....... As for a puppy that died, unreal, money back on the spot
  11. Used to be a problem when I was a kid. every now and then some one would bait all the dogs in the neighbourhood. whoever it was would throw the baits over the fences. only way to protect them was teach them never to eat anything we didn't give them. cant remember what dad used but would put whatever inside pieces of meat with gloves on and get someone else to throw over the fence, whatever it was must have tasted awful because they never touched anything thrown over the fence again.
  12. Another friend was told by the new owner the puppy needed $7,000 surgery for luxating elbows??????? Either transfer the money now to their vet or face court action! Luckily the op hadn't yet been done, told her to demand the puppy be presented to her for for 2nd opinion. Result, puppy found to have had both elbowed fractured! Turned out they had let a 6 month old Labrador puppy jump off a veranda 8 feet to the ground! Although the distress caused to my friend by the owner and her family even after they learned the damage was NOT inherited or her fault. Meant she never bred another litter. Just couldn't cope with the distress caused or the abuse she received before the truth came out.
  13. Very true, my vet once said, considering all the things that can go wrong from conception when one cell is dividing into millions to create a puppy the miracle is so few go wrong and so many turn out fine. As well the puppy CAN be perfect, but if the new owners vet needs money, guess what? 16 week puppy their vet says might need operation for luxating patella both legs then says at six months needs operated on now, and the idiot buyer doesn't call me or the vet who vaccinated it at 12 weeks, to ask didn't my vet pick up on any problems with the patella's? Gives their vet the go ahead AND after the op hits me with the vet bill? No competent vet would operate on a puppy that young let alone one my vet had examined at six and 12 weeks and had perfect patella's (I had intended to keep her, but decided to let the buyer have her as she had lost her dog to an accident and very distressed, So let her have her since it was the mums first litter, So could keep one from the next litter for myself. My vets comment at the time, was "I bet he had a payment due on his new car."
  14. doesnt look like any progress being made in recognition "rspca" stands for corrupt.
  15. Yes I had a almost 7 foot brown kill 4 of my dogs who tore him/her apart. the wires guy said a snake that size would be afraid of nothing and wanted the dogs water
  16. the words are "Tuesday night he turned on the owner's 39-year-old sister and 42-year-old brother." I have a friend with Shar Pei. when I visit the first thing she does is put them in their enclosure. they are guard dogs and bred for fighting. oddly enough the same can for said for pit u know whats. it did not attack the owner. how many decades are we going to read this before people do what my friend always does. locks her's up when visitors come. problem solved. "the deed" cant happen at my friends places. odd that? the way some of them look at visitors, I have no doubt I would not enter before they went into their enclosure.
  17. at six weeks any puppies bones and ligaments are so pliable he could have diagnosed the whole litter with a push in the right place you haven't a real clue until they have finished growing and that's more like at 10 to 14 months depending on breed, my vets opinion any vet who wants to do the op before they are 14 months needs the money to pay off the new 4 wd. keep the weight off and many never need and op either well remember looking after a friends Australian champion bitch, as she was running occasionally she would stick her hind leg out behind her. do a few hops and working normally again. took her to my vet and yep she had luxating patella but as he said. no need for an op. she has figured how to pop it back in herself. did wonder how any judge could award challenge points to a dog who could lock up right in front of you?
  18. similar story for a cattledog, had bitten their child. vet put it down as requested. as he picked the body up his arm was cut as its head lolled over his arm? examination revealed a broken off pencil rammed into the dogs ear many times there was a reason
  19. think we all know its a darned miracle he didn't die over night
  20. which is exactly what I tried to do. but unfortunately I now know she is as traumatised if not more than her dog. which I didn't realise she was incapable of understanding how important it was she get him help immediately. Also she didn't tell me how injured she was from trying to hold him and prevent them dragging him away. She still hasn't taken herself to a doctor. didn't go to another vet or seek the help I told her he needed now to help him immediately. I now know she just did not absorb how important it was, she act immediately. Because she could not see how badly he was bitten because his fur hid all the tooth holes she didn't believe me how injured he had to be underneath, out of her vision. She didn't make the vet appointment until the next day and the throat began to weep. I did really try to make her understand how important immediate treatment was needed as all bites would become infected. By the time the tablets the vet gave her began to work he was leaking fluid and pus like a sieve and she finally realised the extent of his injuries and skin began to die. I dont think even that vet did either. she lives far away from me so could only give advice over the phone. I deliberately did not tell her how close he was to being torn apart in front of her or the extent I suspect his injuries probably were as I didn't want to freak her out. maybe i under played the importance? I dont know. I sure did expect any competent vet would have done a way better job of assessing his damage than that vet ?
  21. thanks, I've sent her the link
  22. friend walked out of her front door, locked it then before she could take a step her dog was attacked by two pb's, a dog and a bitch. the male grabbed his face and throat, the female his side and they tried to drag him off. Lucky he was on his lead and she had her walking stick and did try to drive them away but she is very disabled (aka, most are in a wheel chair with her disabilities.) Fortunately she kept screaming for help and the owner of the male grabbed him and locked him in her car, then grabbed the female. She has rope burns from holding the lead and other injuries. Her dog has extensive injuries but not fatal unless infection gets away we hope. there are many tooth holes leaking fluid but his trachea is intact and he can swallow. I told her to ask the vet she went to to ask about pain medication as well as anti anxiety medication to help him cope with the trauma, but the vet refused. Didn't even want to give antibiotic injection? only willing to supply antibiotic tablets? its week 2 now and he is a mental mess. Terrified to leave the house. terrified in the car the second he sees or hears dogs. he is her support dog and goes everywhere with her, workplace included. She cannot cope to leave him at home which is where he wants to stay now. Has anyone had experience with how to proceed after an attack like this? to get him coping with leaving the house and getting to the car. Or how to make it safer from a future attack?
  23. friend visiting another friend , her dog was on leash but the second it saw the chooks it took off so fast the owner was flat on her face in a split second. lucky the chooks were safe behind the fence. as for the dogs owner gee it was a hard fall. tried to say she tripped. nup her dog yanked her clean off her feet. lucky the chooks were locked up or it would have been a massacre it wasn't a big dog, only medium sized . so does not need to be big to pull someone over if they take off fast enough
  24. huge floppy ears, wire looking coat no cattledog in that pup. long from elbow to foot? no daschund either
