    Curious Eye (issue?)

    This is a pony I see almost daily (from a distance). Today she was quite close and her left eye looked odd. Took a picture and found a contact for the owner, so sent picture to them. Apparently the eye has been removed. Does it look ‘right’ though? I’ve only seen an eye removal whereby the...

    Senior Dog?

    Daisy is now 7 (😱😱😱😱), and her food is for ages 1 to 7 years. Do people move their dogs on to a senior food once they reach 8? And if so, what are the benefits?

    Our new dog’s coat seems to have gone a bit dandruffy. Food hasn’t changed, with the exception of the addition of a drop of Yumove oil daily. He’s at the vets on Thursday for a dental check, so will run it by them. But any ideas?

    Dog Beds

    I bought one of these beds recently for Daisy, and it’s lovely. I need to order a second one, but as this one is from the US would like to try and find a similar UK sold one. Can anyone recommend something similar?

    Insurance Question

    We are shortly re-homing a clients dog (due to them moving in to sheltered accommodation). The dog is insured, which they’ll keep paying. So, question. Will the insurance company allow a change of owners name on the policy?

    Stomach X Ray

    Thought you lot might be interested in this. The Border Collie I walk swallowed a small dog tennis ball on the weekend, and had surgery to remove it today. Just shows how small the stomach, even on a medium sized dog, actually is. Remember, this is a mini tennis ball.

    Dog Clippers

    Please can you guys recommend me some dog clippers. I’ve got some cheap ones that are really pretty useless. Spec is basically for two small dogs, one Bichon and one Shitsu. Both coats are kept in excellent condition, so it’s for trimming, not matting 😀

    Removal of Teeth

    I think my little Doo is going to have to have some teeth out (well I know she is 😢). She was at the vet a few weeks ago because of a loose tooth on her bottom jaw, at the front. Vet said not to worry and it will probably just come out of its own accord. But looking tonight, she actually has...

    Friend has just been in touch regarding a recent incident with her dog. This is the situation. Dog is a border collie, nice dog, friendly. However it doesn’t appreciate being ‘hassled’ by other dogs. It will take it to a certain point, but will nip if the other dog is persistent. It’s very...

    Out of interest, does anyone have an idea of what an MRI would cost on a collie sized dog? Specially of the spine.

    Sorry in advance because I know this has been done to death. But. Insurance... Daisy is now six years old and her insurance is due for renewal in March. I’m expecting premiums to be around £35-40 this time. I’m debating now whether to just self insure, but I’m really torn about it. I know...
