  1. A Barking Chance Animal Rescue tSrSg14a fpSoJunmne astgeorre 0hrge6a:dt44s · Shaken vet reveals: This is what pets do minutes before they fall asleep Every pet owner has to deal with the idea that the beloved member of the family will most likely die before you. If you grew up with dogs or cats, you probably had to say goodbye several times. This farewell doesn't get any easier with time. Most pet ow
  2. The problem lies with the people who did not realise they had any risks to weigh up and lose the plot when its their pet that is the unlucky one. The fact a percentage of vets do not give them that information at all , then what gets me is some tell the heartbroken owners that "its the breeders fault? Demand a refund or replacement." another reason to give up breeding, yet people need pets and somehow i don't think domestic dogs and cats or we who love them would be thrilled about PETA planning their extinction. Doubt it? it has its own thread in the n
  3. They are working sled breeds, very independent and many are wonders at getting out, friends daughter in law races them and she doesn't even bother with fences, they are in roofed, concrete floored kennels. In Alaska they are on individual chain and kennel setups. they love to work and they love to have a job. They have been bred for sled work not family pets or herding so very different temperament compared to German shepherd, different as chalk to cheese. A cavalier is very interesting breed. devoted as a German shepherd and very trainable, but no initiative.
  4. Found on fb "The WA Government has *fixed* the rspca debacle but are being a little bit tricky about it. In 2019 they took prosecution powers away from the rspca and now the Police do all animal cruelty prosecutions. The WA Government has never officially told the public they had stripped the rspca Inspectors of their powers, surely the public have a right to know the reasons why this radical decision was made? Now the rspca can only investigate, and prepare a brief, then the decision to prosecute or not is made by the Police. Consequently there have only been 5 or 6
  5. These images of them is on the net. appears to be golden smooth-coat with dark muzzle n golden smooth-coat without dark muzzle. certainly solid head . well equipped to the job done. Frankly looking at them you couldn't pay me enough to go near them. I know the saying is " blame the deed not the breed" . But whatever they are, those heads were build to tear anything to pieces. I've been bitten to the bone by three of a friends dogs when I had to crate them in an emergency to get her to hospital. but their deed ability to tear me to pieces was severely restricted by
  6. So tragic, that poor, poor woman. Condolences to her family. three articles name a breed or breeds including the original link actually? But without photos it could be anything, n as accurate as the link below? one link included a video on how to avoid an attack which I thought would be helpful, so many people dont know the video supplied by the AVA. https://www.news.com.au/national/queensland/news/queensland-woman-mauled-to-death-by-dogs-in-maryborough/news-story/3cda4c313b1c7e01016d6f309052b524
  7. Nearly choked om my breakie this morning. Our dear Prime Minister is appealing to the World Trade Organisation, to step up to the plate as an avenue of appeal when other nations cancel imports despite adhering to the rules in place for said goods being exported from Australia. No two guesses what nation is leaving millions in value goods stuck and causing millions in losses to Australia's export Industry. So why am I incredulous? well none of our politicians are willing to create let alone enforce an ombudsman as an avenue of appeal when the over
  8. I made the initial post because as the FDA noted. Pet owners need to make an informed decision. That some dogs and cats will have reactions to this drug. Thus it is then their decision to decide if they wish to do so. Knowing that some do die. Its no different to the years ago when vets began using injectable Ivomec although it was not passed as safe to use in horses. On average one to three out of a hundred can die or be very ill. My friend ran an agistment place. There were 113 horses on the property, all agistee's agreed to the vet injecting the wormer into their hors
  9. no idea who you are talking about, I never said anything about cheese. went checking, thats in a post I copied written by and owner frantic to try and save their pet. Author Posted April 12 (edited) (considering the blood brain barrier once crossed, there is no antidote for this drug. if enough gets through death is inevitable. all you can do is pray its not enough to kill.) Lots of speculation about why does it cross the blood brain barrier in some dogs and cats, but not others) well three pups are
  10. Also ignores the fact domestic dogs have been domesticated for tens of thousands of years doing exactly that and and benefited by being far better fed than those in the wild. exactly my vets opinion and as he said experience with 40 years in practice. As for the newbie vets, the majority it seems cant wait to desex every pup they see come into the surgery, the sooner the better. He calls the newbies, "licenced now, to learn at your expense" anyway its only opinion and discussion. the die has been cast and little chance of change in any form
  11. very true. no ankc member should ever breed but to replace the parents for themselves. or your what? a business/puppy farm. eliminate, eliminate let the business puppy farms be where people can find a pet. and they are. in droves but even the x breeders cant supply the shortfall because they are dead enders too. My niece just paid $7,000 for her precious blue merle cavoodle already desexed at 8 weeks fur baby. umm since when was merle or blue to be found in that x? only the true backyard family dogs scattered in homes by the tens millions will be where pet people can
  12. they aren't. The difference is the ankc crumbled to the pressure of the peta loonies and changed in the stupid belief it would placate them and the fur children people who know zilch about dog reproduction. As my vet said when he learned of the new rules , well they obviously didn't bother to consult any reproduction vets first. in the "bad" old days bitches had their puppies while young and retired before they were old enough to start producing downs syndrome puppies, yep, it happens in dogs too as the mum aged. but hey we have to placate the loonie tunes they h
  13. Didnt realise so many products have it in them? Latest fb warning post I just saw. Don't use these horrible and damaging drugs on your pets. NEVER! THEY ARE POISON THAT WILL CAUSE TERRIBLE HARM TO THEM Dr. Karen Becker 8thSpoinSsoredg · A recent peer-reviewed study shows flea & tick products using the potent pesticide, Isoxazoline cause a reaction in 2 OUT OF 3 DOGS! Reactions include seizures, behavioural issues, muscular
  14. AS for Australia's Fed Ex......................................... go pick up from their ware house if the sender uses them. no way they want to hand deliver. In the case of my daughters wedding present, do you want to risk a 2,500 dollar gift left in the grass beside your letter box? they refused to leave at post office and refused to give me a time to meet them beside my letter box. and no it is against company policy to bring to your door, its against company policy to phone you on your contact number to advise when the courier has arrived at your address.
  15. A NOTE ABOUT TICK-BORNE DISEASES, AND WHY CHEMICALS LIKE BRAVECTO, NEXGARD, ETC., DO NOT PREVENT THEM : We have seen a lot of our members posting about concern regarding tick disease transmission (Lyme disease, Ehrlichiosis, Anaplasmosis, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Babesiosis, Bartonellosis, and Hepatozoonosis) to their dogs. We have also seen a lot of our members mention that their vets suggest Bravecto, Nexgard, Simparica, etc., to prevent tick-related illness. In many cases, that is why some of our members purchased these products in the first place. But please note
  16. They must be terrified of anything on the other side of a gate, my driveway is 250 m from the road so they just dump anything either in the letterbox if it will fit, or beneath it. although one, was even worse, would send me a txt that I did not answer and parcel was on its way back to the warehouse? as I was home and the phone definately had not rang i immediately called the number on the txt to be told the same story, this went on for 6 weeks and 4 so called non deliveries and texts to that effect. by then I said I will come to the warehouse and pick it up. THEN to be told, I cant, they do
  17. This video is remarkably similar to the description I was given during a panicked call from a family with one of mine, they woke up to him fitting and foaming. Their vet told them my dogs must have epilepsy in the lines and to send me the vet bills . the vet had given him nexguard at the checkup and last vaccination, they though he was giving him a treat, until they saw the bill included the nexguard , so beware if you breed , the vets are sending the blame to you even though have never had this happen in 42 years, that is until bravecto, nexguard and this related product the dog
  18. another priceless fb post ABComportamento Guys, I promise this isn’t another usual my-dog-on-leash-other-dog-off-leash type of post. It gets good! (Or I think it does ) The other day I was on the local public park (not a dog park, but dogs are allowed) walking Menta. We were on a high movement area
  19. the poster captioned it " Team work " anyone else with cuties like this to share
  20. somebody finally figured it out! some really thoughtful comments on the fb page I spotted it. Because instead of self reflection and personal responsibility humans tend to form herds and blame people who they perceive as weak or threaten their own weaknesses. It happens all the time and starts from childhood bullying through to adulthood Racism, discrimination etc. It can only change if we treat self awareness as an important part of being alive and recognise herd mentality is toxic.
  21. yes the membership of the ankc has gone from about 33,000 in 2017 to 22,000 in 2020. Just as I pointed out to Nancy and Betty, everyone who has a backyard is going to be targeted as a BYB. SO its certainly eliminated a lot of ankc members. no figures for the tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands that are not traceable members of a breed organisation.
  22. with so many even here encouraging people to "adopt dont shop" spotted this just now on faceplant
  23. so which states other than NSW register a litter without having to parentage verify? Be nice to know Karen isn't the only brave Chair.
  24. well you cannot register any ankc litter in qld until all the puppies are parentage verified. I believe its the same in all other states other than nsw. I remember when the ankc buckled to the demands to bring it in then Karen refused to bring NSW into line with the other states correct me if im wrong.
