    Acute moist pyoderma

    Casper has allergies and the other morning we got up to see he had a lot of blood on his head. It looked like a graze. I cleansed it using cooled boiled water and put some antiseptic cream on it. I cam home from work and it had been weeping. I cleansed it again and creamed it. I know if I take...

    Good job Zeb

    I just wanted you to know the success I am having walking Zeb (who is shall we say a very hyper alert dog) He carries his kong bone in his mouth the whole walk and walks like a dream. The only time he's allowed it is on walks so we keep it a 'special' toy. We pass kids on scooters, bikes...

    Coincidence or clever dog?

    When the dogs are in the garden and Casper wants a toy that one of the others have he usually just barks at them in frusteration but lately he has been running to the gate and barking and when they go to investigate he doubles back and gets the said toy. Roll on to just now, Casper being Mr...

    Casper's tail is sore again

    My poor boy :( The tip of his tail is sore again. it was obviously not docked properly in the first place as every now & then it is so sore and red. I have been putting savlon on it then taking him out for a walk so he doesn't lick it off, not sure what else to do. It's bothering him as he...

    Boxers & babies

    My daughters friend has a baby and when she comes over with her baby we have to shut the dogs in another room as they go absolutely mental. They jump up, whining, barking etc and it worries me they'll hurt the baby. I'm at a loss what to do and it's really upsetting me. Lola is the worst one...
  11. Lola's mum


    I know that different barking means different things and wanted to ask if anyone knew what meant what. My daughter's friend has a baby and everytime she brings her round ours and she cries Lola gives this high pitched yappy bark. I just wondered what it meant as she never barks like this at...

    Another fear stage?

    For the past couple of weeks Capser has been really quite edgey. The slightest noise outside and he's off barking and up at the windows, any carrier bags on the floor whilst on walks and he gets jumpy etc. He was 2 in January so should be over the fear stages by now. Earlier when I was taking...

    Advice on sickness

    Zeb was sick last night, he was licking at the walls, me, in fact anything and then threw up. This went on all yesterday evening so I slept downstairs with him so I could let him out whenever he was going to be sick. Is there anything I could have given him to settle his stomach or would it...

    We had an almighty thunder storm here last night and Lola didn't bat an eyelid. She hates fireworks and loud noises but never gets freaked by thunder or lightening, I just think it's very odd. She even sat in the garden for a while.

    UK Benadryl

    I think I remember reading on here that UK Benadryl and USA Benadryl are differnt and contain different substances and that you shouldn't give your dog Benadryl if you're in the UK. Is that right or did I dream it, if not what is the substance in our UK Benadryl that might be harmful?
