Thank you everyone for the advice
But I am afraid we can not stop the “fixing” it is something they do before rehoming any of the dogs, they can’t leave until they are done, which now has me worried he will not settle with my mother
as many of you know Monday was a difficult day for our family saying goodbye to a very special boy
my mother is grieving and slowly taking it step by step
we have found her a whippet to be her new company (when she is ready! there is no rush or pressure if she isn't ready til Christmas that is...
Yes it was his favourite place to be, between the sea and the waterfall
it’s providing very difficult to say goodbye this time, we have had our due family members leave us before but they where old and grey, I’m not saying I miss them less or it hurt less but I feel he has been cheated of many...
I posted back In April the family German Shepard was diagnosed with bone cancer and had 2 months left to live

So Chance didn’t look right on Monday night when I took him in to the arena to lunge, had a quick look but couldn’t see any thing or feel it, farrier was coming Tuesday to shoe another horse on the yard, asked if he could take a little look at Chance in case we have an abscess (it’s rain a lot...
yes feed bag was tired, and even nappies
I am not sure how long he leaves it on for last night it was put on at 10 pm and removed by 7am this morning!
my husband has offered me his socks to pull up over it but I don’t know if that’s a safe option
Help needed we put the cover reach boot on last night and anti chew spray
And the little sod still took it off!!
what do I do?!
Local tack shops don’t have any boots in and online is saying it may not arrive before Christmas
do you think putting a human sock over it might work?
So as some of you will have seen in the photo thread
chance is a suspected abscess and I am polticing (sorry if that is is spelt wrong) his hoof and the horses are currently in due to the fields being water logged any way
so here is my problem i need help with
polticed his hoof last night...

so i am awaiting to have a phone call with the vet about it, not sure when that will be as they seem to be rather busy at the moment
chance is fine in him self, if any thing could do with loosing a few pounds (getting fulled clipped next week and will stay un-rugged)
back end is fine, poo is...
This is my though, however google has kindly informed me it could be a nose irritation , or gut unbalanced so i am awaiting a call from my vet, i am hoping its nothing but to suddenly tart doesn't seem right to me, and the staff just wan him to stop as it makes a mess
so moved chance to a new year 12 days ago
