thats Delta booked in to be spayed tomorrow (well today as its almost midnight now lol). she is getting her front due claws removed as well, we had switherred about maybe not getting them done but them Totts Laura's dog ripped her due claw in fresh snow, nothing to be caught on just an open feild they walk all the time. so she is definitely getting them off.

i have just recently heard that my vet allow people to watch operations. I knew they did this for work experience but didn't know anyone could ask to watch. so we asked if i could watch Deltas opp but they said no as she is my pet, but i can arrange to go watch another operation if i wanted too.

so delta wont be happy tonight when i feed the others but not her as she loves her food.


this is going to be a first for me as i have always been at college when the others were spayed so have never been able to drop them off at the vets or have to be at home without them. she will be fine


but yesterday i herd something bad about another vet who i have heard a number of people complain about and have problems. a 6 month old gold cocker pup went in to get spayed and didn't come around for the anesthetic. Tests were don't but there were no physical reasons for her not waking up. so it is thought that they have had her down as the wrong weight and have given to much anesthetic. the owner has a new cocker pup a black as they didn't want to replace her but the kids were so upset. she has since moved to our vet as they have a good reputation. but its not the best thing to hear just before booking Delta in

however on a happier note the pup they have now is called Lilly and when they went to pick a pup the breeder asked if they had a name in mind. they said Lilly, and the breeder told them that they had a pup with Lilly in her KC name but didn't tell them which one. so the sat and played with the pups and eventually picked one which turned out to be the one called 'Madame Lilly' so i think that little pup was meant for them and hope she has a long and happy life.

Hope it all goes ok Kendal, I'm sure she'll be fine. Dylan is getting castrated tomorrow as well (wednesday). For me, the worse thing will be not to let him off a lead for 10 days - I hardly ever walk him on a lead and he is going to be really miserable not to run.

Good luck Kendal. Post us newbies a step by step guide to how she recovers. We want to get Brontie done but dont know much about the aftercare. When we had our boy done a few years ago, the vet got the pain relief wrong afterwards and we think he suffered, so want to get that right with the meds afterwards. All tips appreciated.

hey Guys the opp went well, she was held a wee bit longer than normal as we didn't get her till 6:00 i think she had been a wee bit more groggy from the anesthetic than they thought she would be and wanted to keep her longer. but she is fine. lol her back end was a little wet as she decided to sit in her water bowl, lol what a smart dog lol. we had Haig and Laura over as soon as she came home so kept the other 3 in the crate as it would have been to much excitement for her. but she didn't properly settle till they were out. she keeps having wee power naps them is up and about for a bit then back down. she has had some scrambled egg and chopped up rice noodles(lol forgot i had used up the last of the rice)

she hardly moved from the hall till they were let out, poor thing was sitting their and slouching almost falling asleep then snapping herself awake and sitting upright. she had her front Dew claws removed so has purple camouflage bandages on like boxing gloves. the opp came in about £270



lol she has poo bags on for coming back from the vets

Pleased Delta is fine. She's looking well perky, Flo was like a rag doll the first evening and just flopped on the floor.

Gypsy was like that, it was three days before she moved without being prompted lol Inca and Echo were bouncing about, lol with inca they called us 2 hours early saying we could come get her as she was barking the place down lol

so she is kinda inbetween.

Glad she's ok Kendal. Just taken Brontie to the vets for her 2nd vaccincations. We can go out walking at last. She was as good as gold (nothing to do with the chicken wing we had waiting for her as soon as it was over!). She seems fine and has been going mad in the garden for the past half an hour with a ball whih squeaks as she can't yet get a tennis ball in her mouth. Vet seemed a bit dubious about me giving her the chicken wing, warned me about salmonella! But she loves them so much now, will just be extra vigilant regarding dates. Kate. PS. Love Delta's new boots.

Vets hate you feeding raw, but don't let that worry you! Mine acted like I was just short of an axe murderer when I put my cavalier onto chicken wings, but he lived to 17 in perfect health.

My vet had the same reaction. When I asked about raw feeding, that I was considering, they said that it was not recommended as they wouldn't know if she was getting a nutritionally balanced diet, which could make it difficult to diagnose any health problems. Flo was tantillisingly close to a BARF diet but I never tried it so she has stayed on Wellbeloved kibble mixed with NatureDiet ever since.

P.s my sisters vet said to feeze the chicken wings after purchase to eliminate salmonella, they didn't have to be eaten frozen just frozen before you gave them x

I've actually found that Dylan seems to prefer his raw ground diet to the chicken wings, so I'm going to stick to that and just give wings occasionally and bones for recreation. He eats the wings fine, but doesn't seem particularly excited about them.

Thanks guys, its good to know we're ok with the wings still. Not too impressed with vet and wondering whether to look further afield ready for when we get Brontie speyed. Will keep you posted. Really looking forward to taking her out for a proper little walk tomorrow. Re: the James Wellbeloved which we transferred to after reading up on it, she seems a bit bored with it already. What's the full name of the Nature one mentioned? Might try mixing it like Flo said. So far, the best thing in her Kong is cream cheese with a gravy bone in the middle, then half a raw carrot stuck in the top to make it harder to get at and last a bit longer!
