  1. Bree, the girl in my avatar, had an ulcer we’d been treating for weeks. It was improving but suddenly went very nasty. The specialist suggested surgery but wasn’t very optimistic about the outcome. We ended up having her eye removed and she recovered very well and coped beautifully.
  2. I’ve had several dogs on vetmedin and their appetite hasn’t changed at all. I’ve always given it an hour before food. Might be worth a call to your vet?
  3. I have a very highly strung and noisy Cavalier though others I’ve had have been quiet and sensible.
  4. Aww hello Evie Glad she’s fitting in well. We just have a heavy flap of fabric replacing the hard flap on our doggy door.
  5. I’ve rarely needed to use an Elizabethan collar to stop mine licking.
  6. I often buy salmon scraps from the fish shop and add them to meals. The dogs love them. They crunch up any bones and fins.
  7. I wouldn’t buy a vacuum that I can’t pull apart to remove blockages. The other cleaners I’ve had I’ve had to send off to get repaired when they blocked up.
  8. Kamuzz can’t read that link without a subscription. I like my Dyson but have been wondering about the new LG stick. Reading reviews there seem to be a fair few complaints. We’ve had the Dyson a good few years now and a plastic dohicky that you press to empty it has broken. But I love that you can pull it apart to clear blockages.
  9. Might be a little further south than we’d like I think. But thanks
  10. Can anyone recommend any dog friendly accommodation Illawarra or south coast NSW please?
  11. Yes that may be a possibility as to why. Thanks. She does get sore and is on meds for arthritis. The bowls we have are fairly narrow and have kept Spaniel ears out for years. She wears a snood for dinner but she wouldn’t keep it on all day. I’ll see if I can find something to sit the bowls on and see if that helps
  12. Hi, just wondering if anyone has any ideas. Our old Cavalier, Lacey, always drinks with one ear dipped in water. She used to do it occasionally but she’s always dripping water through the house now and the others don’t like drinking out of the bowl after it’s been dunked in. We haven’t changed bowls. I’ve no idea why? Any thoughts please? I guess I could clip her ears off but she’s so pretty. It’s not a major hassle. Just need to clean bowls frequently and mop the floors. I’m just curious as to why. Thanks
  13. I know of a standard poodle who really wanted to kill the family’s cats. He was serious! Cavaliers moult constantly and furminators damage their coat. I wouldn’t recommend using one on them. If hair about is a major worry a Cavalier is not the dog for you! I’ve had them for many years and they are wonderful dogs. They are friendly and many are very amenable to training.
