Re: Natures Diet - Major Problem

Hi there, I buy nature diet from a supplier in Norfolk and I've had the same problem with the lamb ones. I bought a box containing 18 trays and 4 had 'blown' and had bulged and were as tight as a drum. I wrote to Nature diet and enclosed all the batch numbers etc and they said they'd had no complain...

Re: Is there a vet on this site? I am desperate

Hello there, I'm sorry, I'm not a vet but you sound so worried I thought I'd reply and say that my thoughts are with you. How is your boy in himself? If you're at all worried about him or he seems to have gone downhill in the last couple of hours, I'd give the vet a ring. Fingers crossed your boy ma...

Re: Nature Diet

Hi there, I live near Fakenham in Norfolk and our local pet supplies place, GJL in Fakenham, does a pack of 18 for £13.50. They always have puppy, senior, chicken, lamb, and turkey and rabbit. You can easily order in fish versions if you so desire. They are brilliant there and also do local deliveri...

Re: Doodle meet in Norfolk in October - maybe Holkham beach?

Hello Techiebabe, I live a quite a bit inland from the Sheringham area, between Fakenham and Swaffham but I'm sure my two would love to have a meet up with Commodore. Holkham beach is great for dogs and by October you're allowed to go on most of it and there is a cafe near the car park if you park a...

Re: Water from condenser tumble dryers

Hello Eileen and Molly, I've one of these tumble dryers too and I use the water that's collected in my steam iron as the water has effectively been distilled. I live in a hard water area and this is brilliant for the longevity of my iron...and much much cheaper than the stuff from the shops. Just a ...

Re: Puppy overbite

We had a similar although simpler situation to you in that Inka had a lower canine milk tooth that was making a hole on her upper palate. It was growing slightly inwards and in the end the vet advised us to have it removed so that it would allow the adult tooth to come through at the correct angle a...

Really useful info. Thanks for that. I'm hopefully having a grooming table etc too and so this post has come just at the right time!

Re: Chicken and rice....mmmmm

Hi there, Quite interested in your post as Inka is not yet 6 months and I've just dropped her meals down to 2 a day. I saw in your post that you feed Rufus 4 times a day and I wonder if this may be part of it? I find that if I feed Inka too much she gets runny poo's. Could this be an issue? Sorry if...

Re: What age did your Labradoodle come into season /

Hi All, Well, Effie is now 2 years and 4 months and still no sign!! I've mentioned it every time I've been to the vets, I was only there a couple of weeks ago and my lovely vet said not to worry. Some dogs have 'silent' seasons and in fact she has one of those dogs herself. Apparently, there is no s...

Re: Do they make glow in the dark doodles?!

In our local Poundland shop they do reflective collars for dogs. I've just bought one for Inka as I can't see her when she goes out in the garden in the evening. As there are some outside lights she shows up really well! Actually there are some quite good things in Poundland for dogs. I bought a pup...

Re: Teeth

Hi there, Have just returned from the vets about Inka's tooth and my mind has been put at rest regarding the anaesthetic. Apparently it's one that's used on premature babies. The vet told me she would only be under for as little time as possible but unfortunately the sedative and a local route is le...

Re: Teeth

Dear All, How funny this should be on the forum now! Strangely, I've got to go to vets this morning as my puppy Inka has got a retained lower canine. She hasn't started losing her teeth yet and the vet wants to remove it under general. I think this is a bit heavy handed to put a small puppy through ...

Re: Key hole spaying

Hi there, I've had a chat with my vet about this as there is another vets practice in the area that does this procedure but it is much more expensive. I was not worried about the cost as I wanted the best for my dog but my vet, who is absolutely lovely and has been neutering dogs for at least 20 yea...

Re: New puppy and existing dog...any tips?

Thank you all for your replies. From all your experience it seems that a crate might be a good idea for the first few weeks. I have a friend I can borrow one from because Effie has never had a crate and she didn't even like her playpen! But in this instance I can see one will be useful. I am at home...
