    Help, dog constantly wetting in the house

    Yes I'm starting to realise that terriers are a whole different ball game to greyhounds! She's just as loving but definitely has more energy and is like a little spring compared to them. I suppose we were a bit naive when we took her in as if we had known she was to do this we would have said...

    Help, dog constantly wetting in the house

    Thank you, that's really helpful we do use puppy pads at the moment however I think we might have to train her to use them! Bless her. Yeah we never punish her , she's quite nervous with sudden movements and I think if we ever told her off she would be frightened, we do say no if she messes in...

    Help, dog constantly wetting in the house

    That's true however apart from this she is a wonderful dog and makes us happy but we wondered if she needs a home with someone who doesn't work or who is retired where they are in more or a home with someone who is experienced in training dogs, I mean that would be a last resort and we're just...

    Help, dog constantly wetting in the house

    Oh no I hope this is not the case ☚ī¸ we love her dearly and feel like we're letting her down as it is without having to really think about finding another home for her however if there was a more suitable home out there then we would let her go as much as it would break our hearts, we also...

    Help, dog constantly wetting in the house

    Unfortunately we dont know for definite if she was house-trained , only the word of her old owners family that she was. A friend who is a vet did give her a check over at home when we got her and said everything seemed ok and it was probably behavioural and recommended the plug ins to help her...

    Help, dog constantly wetting in the house

    Unfortunately we don't know, her previous owner passed away and the family brought her to us and as far as they told us she was as we did ask and asked if she was ok for periods on her own as we work but we are fortunate that family come and walk her and sit with her everyday and they assured us...

    Help, dog constantly wetting in the house

    Sorry, I would say it's definitely when we are out of the house although she does do it when we're in sometimes also. We have looked for some trainers/behaviouralists locally and I have some numbers to try and call tomorrow or Monday so that we can have someone come to show us and help us help...

    Help, dog constantly wetting in the house

    She's around 3 years old, yes she goes on walks everytime and we don't end our walks or turn for home until she has had a wee and a poo although usually she does that pretty quickly into the walk. She predominantly goes to the toilet when she is left alone however she has also done it a few...

    Help, dog constantly wetting in the house

    We do have a crate to try that a friend has kindly given us, we've set it up to allow her time to get used to it but she doesn't go anywhere near it , unfortunately we don't know if she has been crate trained previously and we have had 2 greyhounds before her that were just a doddle, they were...

    Help, dog constantly wetting in the house

    She's booked in next week to be checked over, however I've spoken to a friend who's a vet although sadly not local anymore and she said when she met our dog when we first got her she was in good health and her eyes are bright and her teeth and gums are healthy , her coat and skin is in good...

    Supplements to help with swelling following suspensory injury?

    Yes that was them 🙈 oh no I had seen quite a few reviews and seemed positive however I've had confirmation that my insurance is covering a second claim I had pending and they may cover an arc machine to aid in her treatment so that would be great and if they do then I will keep everything...

    Supplements to help with swelling following suspensory injury?

    Thank you,I had been looking at magnetic boots and magnetic therapy and the equi streemz look to have good reviews. I will have a word with the vet on Monday, I know they were reluctant to give her Bute as didn't want her to over do the leg but she's pretty placid anyway and is just wandering...

    Supplements to help with swelling following suspensory injury?

    Seriously! I haven't asked for a magic healing supplement! I've asked for something that might help reduce the swelling in her leg, not heal it!

    Supplements to help with swelling following suspensory injury?

    She's stabled over night and out during the day which is the yard routine until around may time when they have 24 hour turnout over summer. Unfortunately the swelling doesn't always go down when she's out, she will be scanned again in around a month to see if there is any healing from the last...

    Supplements to help with swelling following suspensory injury?

    There's no need to be like that! I have properly read it , there's no where on the tub that says it's anti inflammatory. If you haven't got anything helpful to say then don't bother saying anything at all. It was a general question for some advice and I've used the supplement to boost her...

    Supplements to help with swelling following suspensory injury?

    Oh really? I didn't realise that, I thought it was more to help their immune system and give everything a boost following injury illness etc but never realised it was anti inflammatory also , thank you that's good to know 😊 however the leg is still swelling up and down so perhaps I could feed...

    Wwyd re stable or living out

    Hi I'm sorry your horse is injured too :( i'm completly with you on that one and i think my concern is the grass livery option i have doesn't have any shelter although she would be rugged up and there are some hedges but she can't get right up to them as a track runs round the outside of the...

    Wwyd re stable or living out

    Yes thats true, unfortunately i have made the decision to take the stable for now and then if she's better away from the land she's currently on then to move her and let her live out, the vet thought this was the best option as she can be stabld over night and out of the mud for her skin...

    Suspensory Branch Injury

    when you say rest is detrimental do they mean complete rest as in box rest ( which she has already done 5 months) or rest from work and just field rest? i'm trying to find a happy medium for my horses mental well being and physical well being and feel like i'm failing at both! that does look...

    Suspensory Branch Injury

    Thank you that's really interesting, so was his line of thinking that if the leg is just left without any intervention and without using it the scar tissue would be worse? And therefor the risk of reinjury alot higher? I'm so pleased he came sound for you 😊 and especially at that level, I will...
