Re: Daisy has been poorly

I forgot to post about Daisy having more eye surgery. She had a procedure done to make her eyes smaller, I forget the technical term for it, but they sew up on both sides of each eye. It's made such a difference to her face. She no longer has the constantly wet face which was caused by hairs touchin...

Re: Daisy has been poorly

How is Daisy getting on, Mercedes? Good I hope. Bit late in replying, sorry about that Gwen, hadn't seen your post. Well it's over a year since she had her surgery and touch wood she seems to be fine thanks. Her graft still looks okay, last time we took her for a check up in April her tear producti...

Re: Cesar Milan again

Yes Wendy they are in Bushey I think m I've never heard of them, my son is pretty dismissive of them too but daughter in law seems convinced he is the answer to her prayers, can't really say much. Will be interesting to see how it goes. What they should have done was take her to one of your classes ...

Cesar Milan again

I knew that my son and daughter in law had a dog behaviourist coming to see what could be done to help with their dog's behaviour issues, but only after I spoke to them afterwards did I realise he is a fan of Cesar Milan and uses his techniques to train dogs. I'm trying really hard to not say anythi...

Re: Vitamin D Deficiency?

I know this is quite an old thread but I just thought I would post an update about my own experience of taking a VitD supplement. I had some blood work done last month and asked if I could also have my VitD levels tested as even though I have carried on taking a supplement all year round, I don't si...

Re: Bruce

I keep meaning to post another update on Bruce as we see him quite a lot. He is such a lovely dog, still not keen on other dogs and gives them a wide berth, but Daisy has once tried to play with him, don't think she realised how quick he is compared to her {rofwl}

Re: Daisy has been poorly

Hello Mercedes, good to see you posting again, but a great shame that Daisy has this problem. I've nothing to add, know nothing about her breed, only about shelties. I hope you are coping with the situation. Thanks Spreckly, we are coping okay with Daisy all things considered. We do have pet insura...

Re: Daisy has been poorly

Hi Mercedes Just had a reply from the breeder of Lexi and she says that having Grandparents on both sides of a pedigree is what they used to do, but is now considered to be bad practice and inbreeding which can result in health issues. Not sure when this practice was altered though. That's interest...

Re: Cleaning dogs teeth, advice please.

Teeth should be cleaned every day. I never used to clean my last dogs teeth as I wasn't clued up enough on how important it was. However ever since we've had Daisy, which was when she was 20wks old, I've used a piece of muslin and some of that dog toothpaste they sell in Pets@Home. She does have ve...

Re: Fleas

Haven't de fleaed my dogs for about 20 years. 'Cos they haven't had any. Granted I haven't got a cat and I think they can bring them home . The last time I saw one on my dogs, they had just batted a hedgehog about, I dusted them. Dislike thoroughly those drop things ! Same here Wendy, I never used ...

Re: Daisy has been poorly

If the breeder is breeding as part of or for a full living then she will have to keep records both for the tax man and vat if she is earning enough for 7 years, from what you have put it sounds like she might not be declaring her earnings from these pups, which is a whole new ball game. I cannot se...

Re: Daisy has been poorly

I actually did a great deal of research before picking Daisy. I went through the Shih Tzu Puppy Co ordinator and she put me onto the breeder we bought Daisy from. Her pedigree is very good, her father is a champion show dog, which makes it quite ironic that I spent so much time to make sure I bought...
