Re: Glasgow will drop off

Hi and welcome. I appreciate that you need to rehome urgently but would always advise going through a rescue if possible. If when you’ve rung round all the rescues they are full then please be careful rehoming, there’s some dubious people about. This information below explains how to rehome safely: ...

Re: Gandhi's grub

:D Aww I’m so glad you’ve found something he really likes, that’s great news! I bet he’s one happy lad now, and as Lilith says, just keep ‘em eating, I’m a firm believer in that. I look after ferals and one of mine is at least 18, I know he can’t be 100% healthy now, but he eats whatever he wants, h...

Re: Advice please... Lucy has an allergy - but to what??

Allergies can definitely be a pain to sort. As well as some form of summer allergy, e.g. flea bites or pollen etc, which is obvious due to the time of year her skin breaks out, my Tasha is definitely allergic to Webbox, because she’s sick immediately after eating them. I checked out the ingredients ...

Re: Advice please... Lucy has an allergy - but to what??

Well fingers crossed something works. The worse thing for Tasha was, she loves going out and we were having to keep her in with the collar on for a week at a time. You can end also end up spending a fortune on stuff. If all else fails I’d definitely ask the vet about Isaderm, it seems to be working ...

Re: Kidney disease- when is it time?

Although you know her better than us, I agree with Lilith, whilst she’s still got some appetite etc, then I’d be inclined think she’s still doing ok. Even when she loses her appetite for a while, there will be good and bad days, it’s when the bad outweigh the good and she’s really no interest in lif...

Re: Advice please... Lucy has an allergy - but to what??

I’ve never heard that area indicating food allergies, although I have heard flea allergies (i.e. bites), which is what we though was the cause of Tasha’s until she was still breaking out despite being treated monthly. I wouldn’t be too happy using Synulox long term tbh, I hope the more natural treat...

Strong smelling fish may help, or even some white boiled fish or chicken. Or have you tried a prescription food from the vets? Hills AD I ...
