Let him rest see how he is in 48 hrs. And whilst he was always a little...

    Julius K-9 harness views?

    I have one on each of my Rottie’s and I’ve had no problem. Followed the video instructions to fit them and I check the fit regularly. Dogs are happy, no restriction in movement, they’re still loons! Plus the handle is a Godsend if I need to grab them quickly. They’re not aggressive but people...

    Plumber for stable - Tayside

    My husband is a plumber and he said the set up at a stables wouldn’t be much different to that in a house/outdoors area. It wouldn’t be considered a commercial plumbing job and you should be able to use any qualified plumber. Facebook local pages seem to be a good way to get recommendations as I...

    Sarcoids - this is WAR!

    Aciclovir has been a Godsend for my chap. Soon as they appear I pop some on. None have advanced further and some have just upped and left. I buy large tubes from the vet which last ages.

    How to save my horses tail?!

    Baby oil will help get the burrs out and the poo won’t stick so much. I use shampoo by old style horse remedies and that works very well.

    The smell of wee

    Biological washing powder. Scrub in and blot dry. Never ever rub it dry as you’ll push the smell deeper into the underlay. Keep blotting and leave to dry. Sprinkle bicarb, leave a few hours, overnight is best then vacuum. Once bone dry wipe over with either white vinegar or surgical spirits. I...

    Sudocream - how do you get it off

    Baby wipes is good at removing a lot of it but it’s a nightmare to get it all out. I baby wipe as much as I can, rub in powder and brush until most of it’s removed.

    Dogs ears causing great aggitation

    Another vote for stinky stuff ear drops. Honestly did not expect it to work having tried everything else including veterinary stuff. Poor dog was driven mad with her ears. The difference was obvious after the first drop and it’s made a huge improvement to her ears and her life.
