    Bernese mountain dog

    I wouldnt say they bark any more than a Goldie, and they are a lovely breed, just such a shame about the cancer rates. I have 2 Great Swiss Mountain dogs, which are the next breed up from the Bernies, in that group, and they just bark at people coming to the door/gate.

    Vestibular disease

    I really feel for you. Our elderly Collie got it, and the vet was initially quite optimistic, but after appearing to improve, she had several more episodes, needed a towel sling to support her to go outside etc and we felt she had lost her quality of life. Sending hugs. xx

    Calming cookies

    I thought they were most likely a placebo for the rider. So, I gave one to my pony before the farrier arrived ..... normally my pony would fidget and pull back on his rope etc, but he stood absolutely still the entire time.

    Keeping the cone on

    Mine had to be in a cone for 12 weeks! I threaded a crepe bandage through the loops on the cone, and then tied it to her collar .... that worked for her.

    Whoes been out hacking?

    Me! First time in a year ..... CRPS in a hand, then a fractured ankle and torn ligaments, then terrible Sciatica stopped me, but today I DID IT .... can only manage walk at the moment as it's too painful, but it's a start and I am buzzing with happiness. Love my Unicorn.❤🦄

    Getting dog to take tablets

    One of my dogs is Epileptic and has to take 16 pills/day. I hide the meds in either some sausage or wrapped in some cheese slice. I hope you find a way that works, it sounds as though constantly changing what you use is the best way.
