    Having a horse put down - Injection or Gun ?

    I’m so sorry you’re having to make this decision, I’ve just lost my 26yr old mare, this was my first time and my vet was amazing, she explained everything beforehand including that my mare could ‘run’ once down and make sighing noises but that she would be gone and that it was just muscles...

    Mud fever..... or not??

    Introduce your dogs: pictures and nicknames

    I have an 11yr old working cocker and a 6yr old Greyhound. The cocker is Sam, he came with the name when I got him from his breeders at 8 months old, he doesn’t really have nicknames apart from Samuel if he’s being naughty (Although now he is deaf that’s pointless anyway!!) or SamuelSpaniel My...

    SRMA - Meningitis

    So glad he is doing better, my girl had meningitis just over three years ago now, it was awful and such a worrying time, she was screaming every time she moved (although she is a greyhound so she does scream even for stubbed toe!) It sounds like she may have had a slightly different type as she...

    I have some little boots for my greyhound for when I take her to agility and i put them on if I know she is potentially going to do zoomies in a large open space as that's when she tends to catch them! They are from Forrest fleece.
