Re: Grass seed and MRI scans

Ah bless her :lol: Did they let you stay with her then? Marley is such a good boy but we hate leaving him anywhere. Did they find the grass seed in Daisy's ear with the scan? Thank you!!! Once all this is done my next post will no doubt be how to introduce a new baby to two spoilt doodles :wink: :D

Grass seed and MRI scans

Hi all I havent been here for ages (mainly cos we are busy getting ready for baby #1 :)) but I know this is always the best place to come for friendly advice!

Re: Key hole spaying

Hi Duffy was spayed using keyhole. It cost £110 instead of the £80 for the usual spay. I would def recommend keyhole. She was given painkillers to help during the first night and she was back to her usual bouncy self the next day. No need to restrict their activity and no stitches to remove. Fantast...

Norfolk Broads - best boat for labradoodles?

Hi all We are going to take Marley and Duffy on their first boating holiday this summer to the Norfolk Broads (if it ever stops raining!!). They are both great swimmers and I'm sure they will enjoy watching the world go by from the boat too. My question is has anyone been with their dogs to the Broa...

Kia Sportage anyone?

Hi there,

Not been on here for ages but know this is a great place to come for good advice :)

I am thinking of getting a 2005 Kia Sportage and wondered if anyone else has one and if this would be a good size for one large and one medium labradoodle?

Thanks for reading
Debbie, Marley and Duffs

Re: second dog?

Yes I would say get a second. Marley was 18 months when we got duffy at 8 weeks. Marley still had several bad habits like terrible recall but duffy didn't pick up any and marley has picked up a lot of good habits from her. He seems more content with duffy around as she is a calm loving girl who does...

Re: TICKS!!!!!

Ah just found site that says dogs don't develop a rash or the bullseye in lymes like humans do. Duffy has a round red mark left several days after I removed a tick from below her eye and I was worried about it. She is fine tho, eating and rushing about as normal :D

Re: TICKS!!!!!

Can anyone tell me more about the 'bullseye' and what other symptoms of limes disease to look out for in dogs please? Can't find anything much online except it causes limping and fever.

Re: sorry... me and anal glands again

Thank you as always good ideas and advice. Lots to think about. I have also emailed my vet tonight to get more advice and will let you know what they recommend. I tried to empty the glands myself with vet guidance but they are too deep. Marley had compylobacter as a pup and vet believes some scar ti...

sorry... me and anal glands again

HI all, I Just end up more confused the more I research. Marley has deep set anal glands that need emptying by the vet every four weeks which she says is too often and he needs more fibre in his diet. He is a fussy eater but does like wainwrights wet and has one tray a day in two halves. THis has 3....

Re: IN A DILEMMA! PET INSURANCE! :-)

We are with sainsbury and they have just refused our claim for Marleys OCD as they state a visit to the vet for an unrelated limp prior to the insurance starting makes it a pre existing condition. This is despite our vet writing to them to say the limp totally resolved prior to the OCD diagnosis. We...
