    Identify this bird and help me find it's owner?

    Hello! This bird was brought in to me tonight but we don't have much idea about what species it is or how to find out who it belongs too. We think it is possibly some type of parakeet? Possibly a ring neck? It sounds like a parakeet anyway! Has a purple band on its right leg which...

    Changing my dogs diet again!

    I have an 11 year old Border collie who is getting a little stiff in his older age. He still runs about like a loony and has never really been very into food, so a bit difficult to give him any sort of joint supplements. I changed him to Arden Grange senior last year due to the glucosamine and...
