  1. HI All, I was after your opinions in regards to Season Suppressants. A friend told me she has put her two aging bitches on a product as one is 14 yrs old & the other is 9 yrs and would not survive any survive due to throat problems so de sexing for both is out of the question. A vet has prescribed her ETHYLESTRENOL 0.5ml tablets. (I think this is also called Nandoral?) What other suppressants is there with not many side effects? She was told their is an "Implant" but has several side effests, no idea of the name of it. After some googling I discovered that some greyhound racers have
  2. Hi, I am getting a spare VicDog magazine posted out to me. Since I don't need two I would like to swap for a NSW monthly magazine. I have our October issue sitting on the desk. Thank you BB
  3. I have been informed that there is a change of judge for the Euroa aggie in a couple of weeks. Grps 4 & 5 will not be judged by Jan Seary (nsw) but will be judged by Jan Campbell (Vic). BB
  4. I hope it's not too cold up there this year. Good luck everyone. BB
  5. Wear what you are comfy in. Summer I usually have short sleeves. occasionally in winter I have worn a jumper as it was freezing. BB
  6. Yes it was abit suishy but we all survived. I think the grp 7 ring was bigger than the grp 5 and perhaps a couple of other grps. Perhaps the coucil wanted their money from permits and stuff they didn't mind where everything was put. BB
  7. Contact Ophnbark on DOL she is Doggy Treats Australia. All her products are natural with no yucky stuff and she is quick (except when it is 40'C for several days in a row here in melb. ) BB
  8. I wasn't entered but dropped in for a look. I thought the oval was great, plenty of room for gazebo's, some poeple's car parking could of been better. The catering (one van) could of been better prepared as I heard they weren't epecting so much business that they ran out of food and had to go out to get more. What did everyone else think of the oval?? BB
  9. he is our vet. Has been for many years. Two weeks ago he vacc & chipped our litter. For three pups I think all up it was $100 I can't remember. I tend to ring him between 8:15-8:30am to see when he will be in my area next. You DO have to wait all day for him though and IF he has an emergancy to deal with he doesn't contact you. I will PM you his ph number. BB
  10. How are everyones pups going? Did they do ok in the heat? my guys have little razors starting to come through their gums now. BB
  11. Thanks for the tips so far. I have been told outside it will run & play but when inside it will just sleep, sounds like a calm dog so far. Dry food-she can not afford Pro Plan. Maybe a the large bag of Supercoat she can. So should she feed him on the puppy until 6 months of age then move him onto large breed adult? I thought it was reccomended to raise their bowl to prevent bloat. Please keep the advise coming. BB
  12. Hi All, I do not want to be flamed or crticised for my sisters poor choice but I am hoping you could help me educate her. She has only had small breed dog and currently has a cross bred the size of a Aust cattle dog. She recently brought a male 6 week old Bullmastiff x BullArab pup. :mad She met the mother and she was quite placid. (she was the Bullmastiff). I did ask her what the Bull Arab was and I can't remember what she said. Now my question to folk is "" How should she be feeding this puppy to prevent health issues?" Are there any websites I can direct her to? I did tell her th
  13. Thanks for the link JaneH. So Launceston royal is 9-11 Oct Hobart Royal is 22-25 OCt. IS the Launceston royal still just like a aggie show? You can come and go whenever you want? it has been about 4 yrs since I showed in Tas. BB
  14. Hi All, I was wondering when the Launceston & Hobart royal are on this year? Plus all the other royals. To me according to the ANKC site Tas royals have not contracted any judges yet. Does anyone know whom they are? Plus what are the other shows & judges in between these royals? Thank you BB
  15. Our breed club is the same Airedaler so the committee decided not to use any of the sites on offer. maybe for the bigger all breed clubs it is worthwhile. BB
  16. HI All, everyone s bubs are loking great. Attached is a pic of Fleur with her babies just before they opened their eyes. (Yes I use nail polish to mark them to keep track who is who.) They have call names for now, Sonya, campbell and now Sara-Jane. Just a question for a friend who has her first litter of a small breed. Her pup is now two weeks old and apparently no sign of his eyes opening yet. When you would you be concerned that a singleton isn't going to open their eyes?? Thanks BB
  17. Glad your boy is feeling better now, he will forgive you once you feed him. My boy when younger broke his nail, took him to the vet and they pulled it off and it has never grown back. Thats one less nail to trim. :) BB
  18. well Fleur made me miss todays dog show. She gave us 2 girls 1 boy all black this morning. Mother & children are now sleeping. Pics later in the week. I think one girl will take after her father as she started screaming as soon as the sack was broken. BB
  19. http://www.coolweave.com.au/k9_cooling_vest.htm Link to the Cool coats by Silver eagle in Vic, I think they are down the sth east suburbs. No thier coats don't have gel inside them. I have these for my Schipps. BB
  20. Thank you veryone for your advice. The bitch is on a good diet. I wasn't going to start using this product if I didn't need to. Just was told her sister was slow to produce milk for her 4 pups, I know sisters can be totally different. She is now producing plenty of milk. My other bitch (whom will no longer be having pups) was fine in this department. yes I do let the bitch eat a placenta or two. Thanks BB
  21. Thanks for the tip Espinay2, I went to a chemist yesterday and brought a bottle of it. ALthough it says its to "aid digestion & a healthy appetite." When would you start to give the tablets? just before whelping? I am not familiar with this Myra savant harris (advanced canine reproduction and puppy care, page 9, where can I find it? I am just hoping my bitch will produe enough milk and be a good mum. BB
  22. Most trophy shops should be able to help you. we get ours from here http://www.dekatrophies.com.au/index.html Good luck BB
  23. HI All, I have a maiden bitch about to be a mum for the first time in a coupel of weeks. YAYAY Her sister had her pups a couple of days ago and I am told the pups were being supplemented with formula as the mum didn't have much milk. Is there any way of increasing the bitch's milk? Who has tried Fenuegreek Powder??? Where do you get it? How much do you give the bitch? How often? The mum is most likely near 8kgs. Thanks BB
  24. HI All, We have a litter due couple of days before xmas. A first time mum so hopefully everything goes well for her. Ultrasound showed 3 maybe 4 Schipperke pups. BB
