    Itchy dog. Ideas please

    My JR has become really itchy after the loss of his mates. He chews his legs constantly and rubs his back wherever he can. Vets think he’s stressed as nothing else has changed. It’s horrid when they itch and you don’t know why. I have used colloidal silver and it has helped.

    Beautiful I’m looking still as my JR is very lonely after losing 2 of his mates so close together. Still ridiculous prices for non KC pups.

    Coping with loss of dog

    I really sympathise with you it’s devastating. We have recently lost 2 close together. The worst thing about having pets. No advise really other than remember the good times and cherish the memories.

I had managed to get most out with olive oil so was a pretty quick simple procedure. Apparently it’s safer than the syringe. Going back tomorrow for them to...

    Big yard / medium yard or private yard which one do you prefer

    No not at all. I much prefer to be in control with everything I do with my horses. It doesn’t suit a lot of people, some do not want the maintenance etc of a yard and field and prefer company of other people. A friend of mine hated it and moved back to a part livery yard as she just wanted to...

    Fly rugs and masks at night?

    Never used to but flies have been awful so have left masks on 24/7 recently. I do bring them in after a few days and take off for a few hrs then pop back on. They come off really easy if caught up.

    Redmire/Olson/Prime stables feedback please

    National stables were great. Good sturdy stables that are still wonderful after 11yrs. They were very easy to deal with.
