New Poll: Is Your dog Neutered?

New Poll: Is Your dog Neutered? Results of last week's poll, where we asked if you have pet health insurance or not, are in. It was practically a dead heat the entire time, finishing with 78/154 (51%) of you saying "yes" you have health insurance for them! Very interesting. Our new poll is trying to dig a little into the health of your pets. A hot topic here two weeks ago was the neutering debate. It never fails to muster a strong response. We are all concerned for the despicable amount of [...]

Do you Have pet Insurance? Take our Poll!

Pet Insurance is a hot Topic... Some reading the above headline might be surprised. Others less so. The truth is health insurance is a good thing. Ask anyone waiting on trolleys in the public sector. When it comes to our pet's health though, it gets a little more grey. This is largely due to the policies available. There are a lot of negative stories out there. So here's what you need to know about pet insurance. My Personal Experience With PetInsure.ie... I didn't realise that my mother was still [...]

Alabama Rot in Dogs – Can Everyone Please Calm Down

Alabama Rot in Dogs, can we all Just Relax a bit... A hot topic zooming around the internet at the moment is Alabama Rot in dogs of the UK. This is despite the fact that zero cases of Alabama Rot have been actually confirmed, that reported cases still number below 80 (in a nation of 10mil dogs), that all reports are emanating from a single veterinary website. Why?! One reason is that we are living in an age where stories like Alabama Rot (I mean, it's a pretty cool name) gruesomely [...]

Natural Sunscreen For Dogs…

Natural Sunscreen for Dogs... A VERY optimistic poster just asked me did I know of any natural sunscreen ideas for a very white little Staffie pup. This was interesting as I remember hearing that seed oils are naturally SPF. Two things you might not know about sunscreen. The first is, did you know that the difference between say SPF 20 and SPF 50 is simply a matter of time you are permitted in the sun? This was news to me, I thought it was a strength measure! I hope at [...]

Travelling Abroad With Your Dog…

Travelling Abroad With Your dog, a Note on Blood Titres and Passports... As the evidence builds against the gross over-vaccination of our pets, more and more people are asking me for travel advice, specifically on vaccinations when crossing borders. Currently, pets are required to be dosed up to the eyeballs before they go anywhere, often to a ridiculous degree. Case in point the rabies jab for movement between two rabies free countries, even when that pet has already been vaccinated for rabies. This sort of nonsensical approach stems from the [...]

Waivers for Kennels and DayCares

Waivers for Kennels and Daycares... I think the majority of us on here do not believe in the practice of annually boosting already vaccinated animals, or an entirely ineffective kennel cough "vaccine", not to mention chemical flea or worm control for animals with no parasites. The problem for us arises when we need to leave our dogs in kennels or daycare. For the last few months I have speaking about possible waivers for these premises in that, should you wish to leave your vaccinated (but not annually boosted) dog in [...]

chicken or beef allergies in dogs

Ever Wonder how / why Dogs can Suffer Chicken and Beef Allergies?! A New Theory... As I like to say, a dog being allergic to beef or chicken should be as strange as a cow being allergic to grass. So, how can dogs become sensitive to a food group that would normally make up the majority of his diet? I always find it strange that this question does not puzzle our vets more. Please note, it is rarely a food allergy, per se, that we see in dogs. A true [...]

Botanica, For Skin Conditions in Dogs

Botanica, Natures Healing Energy So, who's heard of Botanica?! As we're now stocking them! Botanica is an Irish company making natural products that target the heal and repair of a great variety of common skin conditions in dogs (as well as horses and humans). And by all accounts they do it very, very well. There are two lead products that I wish to talk about, a herbal wash and fast absorbed cream, which are used together to treat the affected area. Both products are packed with herbs knows for their antiseptic, [...]

Tips for Buying Dry Dog Food…

Top Tips for Buying the Best Dry Dog Food If you absolutely have to feed dry food, for whatever reason, then it really doesn't matter who is making or selling your "complete" dry food of choice, as there's so little between these brands, bar marketing budget. So here's a few top tips for buying the best dry dog food before you hand over that hard earned cash... 1. Avoid All Wheat-Based Dry Food Wheat is the number one antigen in dogs by FAR. Dogs are one of the most wheat gluten sensitive [...]

Check out the Number of UK Vets now Offering Blood Titres!

Check out the Number of UK Vets now Offering Blood Titres! For those of you who don't know already, the whole redundant concept of boosting ALREADY VACCINATED DOGS each year for viruses is now second only to the concept of promoting cereal-based dry food for carnivores on the list of "most erroneous veterinary practices being conducted today". Blood titres for dogs are clearly the answer. If you do not know what these are I urge you to read the following article and if at all possible, show it to your [...]
