Alabama Rot Deadly Disease to Dogs

Alabama Rot or CRGV (cutaneous and renal glomerular vasculopathy), is a canine disease that causes blood clots to form in blood vessels causing damage which leads to tissue damage.

Greeting unknown dogs in the correct way

If you are a dog lover, which you probably are if you are taking the time to read this article, you will enjoy greeting new dogs you meet whilst out and about. However, attempting to greet a dog in an inappropriate manner could cause you all sorts of problems, and could also put you, the dog, and the owner at risk. read more…

Sibling Rivalry in dogs

One of the common calls we get is for help where two (or more) dogs living in the same household have started to fight. We call this sibling rivalry. Many owners never experience this but, for those who do, it can be very distressing.

Bereavement: Coping with the loss of a dog

Bereavement: Coping with the loss of a dog

Dogs are with us for just a short period of our lives and yet, during that time, they become a major part of our family. Many people would describe the attachment they feel towards their dog as just as strong, if not stronger, than that felt towards some human relatives. So when it is time for our beloved pet to leave us and cross over the "Rainbow Bridge", the sense of grief and loss can be overwhelming. What is worse, many other people, those you work with or those you know socially who have never owned a dog and never experienced that particular bond of love and affection, simply cannot comprehend the depth of your grief. read more…

Dangerous Dog Breeds

Dangerous Dog Breeds

There has been a major furore on social media recently over a sign erected by a Councillor on an area of public land in Ireland. This prohibits certain breeds of dog from being allowed off lead. The selection of breeds subject to this ban appears to be based on the Councillors personal feelings. The force of the backlash against the Councillor from dog owners, breeders and trainers alike may have surprised him, particularly the calls for he himself to be muzzled!... read more…
