Health / Re: 'Phantom' or Air-Scratching
« Last post by Coalman1959 on October 11, 2021, 11:24:36 AM »
##UPDATE##
So! After a chat with the Vets4Pets fellow, it was agreed that they would offer 4 months supply ( 28 x 16mg tabs ) on the prescription but only give me 1 prescription for 1 month at a time. That was Ok. The cost for the whole 4 months 'written' prescriptions was the agreed, £17 for ALL the 4 months.
However, we are now three weeks past his last Apoquel tablet and so far , so good.... very, very little air-scratching and no distress at all.  I have had no need to appraoch the Vet for any tablets due to Archie's wellbeing, but we know that he has that remedy 'in the bank' if we ever need it again.  He had his 14th birthday at the end of September and is really well and still RUNS us to the first tree to have a sniff when we take him out. All good!! 😁

Hi Dave,
I also have a 10 week old little slug eater! I made a panicky call to the vets a few days ago and she reassured me that Panacur (which my puppy had at 8 weeks) covered lungworm, as did the Advocate she was given yesterday - 1 day after her 2nd jab.

I would highly recommend using nematodes in the garden as a pet safe slug killer. You can buy it on Amazon and at garden centres etc. and it’s worked wonders in our garden. Haven’t seen one since I put it down 3 days ago. Gives me a bit of peace of mind when she’s out there and time to train ‘leave it’ and feel confident she will actually be able to resist the temptation when she next encounters the next delicious (!!) slug.

As long as your boy is eating and toileting as normal and has the same energy levels (sky high I would imagine) then I wouldn’t worry too much, but that’s easier said then done when they’re young!

I have an 8 month old muck magnet too, I shower her once a week and her coat and skin are fine, I use herbal dog shampoo. She has her paws rinsed in between and on wet days we use an equafleece which is a god send.

Bonny is a show type cocker and has a beautiful long coat so takes a fair bit of maintenance, also I'm soft and let her sleep on our bed so feel it's important to keep her clean  :D

Gemma is one for scenting out stinky water. We just keep walking until we find clean water to throw her in. ( she won't volunteer to go into clean stuff).  A family secret though, we have been known to " borrow the neighbours bath" when  we were key holding because she was too awful to go in ours. 😬😬😬
You are an evil genius!  :lol2: :lol2: :lol2:
