Re: A very difficult Doodle to feed

Thankyou for your replies and advice given. Lotti is now 5yrs old and this habitual refusal of food is quite upsetting. We have tried various foods , raw, cooked chicken etc. she likes egg but wont touch rice, tried stock from fresh cooking but to no avail. Yesterday gave her a small saucer of raw b...

Re: Flea treatment irritation

Hi Olly I have been using a product which has Cedar oil and silicone because one of my Doodles has seizures and it appears the Topical drops with Fip & Pretherin agitate the condition. It does seem to work albeit it is pungent but the smell does wear off after a couple of days- it's called Dr Bens P...

Re: Doodle Seizures

I have valued all the replies to my post about the content in Topical Flea Treatments ie: Pyrethrum( or Pyrethrin) and also as mentioned Fipronil . I was convinced the adverse affects my Dood suffered was based on this and i'm glad I didn't follow MY Vet's prognosis and the fact they wanted to fill ...

Re: Doodle Seizures

Hi Anny I deliberated over and read loads on the Internet about the contents of the Topical drops and some of the well known products contain Pyrethrum which I didn't realise is actually a poison mainly to insects but can in fact cause seizure like symptons in some pets. The more I read I thought it...

Doodle Seizures

Hello All Doodlers A while back I wrote about my lovely Dood having seizures and after much debate with the Vet and a lot of Internet search I came to the conclusion that Topical Flea products were the root cause of his fits. The Vet was somewhat sceptical probably for financial reasons but I persis...

Re: Struvite stones

Thankyou for the link Bid and ive printed this one too , the more information gathered is to the good. The Vet is treating the infection separately and then the Stones with the view that Diet is probably integral to controlling the formation and weve had scans and the relevant tests so far. I like t...

Hello all My Doodle has been diagnosed with Urinary stones and although there are lots of foods available to reduce their formation my dog isn't too keen on these formulated foods and I have to coerce her and very often get the nose in the air and the walk past the bowl - you know how it goes ! :rol...

Re: Now here's a funny thing

This was first time for Lotti and also shes never been left anywhere and I was also waiting 4 hours and actually pacing the floor. Apart from the fact they've cut her head too short, it was a good clip and ears all clean, but its as though her experience has changed her , not so cuddly now . I'm hop...

Re: Ears

Thankyou all for your help il get ordering some of the mentioned and maybe I should look at her diet too. Although my dog has a mix of biscuit and wet plus fresh meat I may take one out and swap around over a few weeks and see, this ear prob is just such a nasty thing for our lovely dogs. Sue & Lotti
