    The procedure turned out not nice and excruciating painful the consultant indicated he would treat the problem veins by laser under local anesthetic but he changed his mind and decided to strip them out but still only under local anesthetic
    Brian, Oh, poor Dawn, that must have been horribly painful, hope she's feeling better soon.

    My three doglets had a bug a while ago, it sure is a lot of hard work looking after 3 sick doggies at the same time. Hope they all recover soon

    Brian, I am just catching up on this thread. What a horrible experience for Dawn! I am also sorry your pups have been under the weather too. Glad things are finally turning around and getting better!

    Default Live Yoghurt

    One of my girls has been suffering for a number of weeks with this tummy problem, she has been on 2 lots of anitibiotics and a weeks course of anti inflamatories nothing has worked until some one suggested I give her live yoghurt, chappie and baked brown bread, it has worked a treat and she is now back to normal. She loves the yoghurt and licks it of the spoon of course the other dogs want some as well so it has become part of the daily routine.
    Hope this helps

    Hi

    Well after today i think i can safely say three up two down ,explanations follow.

    1) Took Dawn back to the hospital at 6.30 last night were the redressed her wound which was leaking and reassured her , so this morning Dawns a lot brighter and she staggered round a couple of shops with me today ,but the more we think the more we know the consultant was totally our of order to have done what he did just under a local when all i read and people i talk to say it should have been a general anesthetic .An old friend is a retired consultant surgeon and he was twice chairman of the board at this hospital so i think i might ring and ask for his comments.
    2) Took all the girls back to the vets all OK but Rosies tummy still tender so keep on with her tablets but i can slowly revert them back to their normal diet but keep an eye on them ,which i do like a hawk but thats been a long and nasty bug thankfully its gone.
    3) After the shops and the vets took them to Birkenhead Park for a run ,we where approached by a young lad who galloped up to us "Had we seen a Tri-colour Cavalier around his name is Charlie and hes nine and he escaped from their house last night .we hadn't but he gave us a picture and phone numbers and Charlie had not been chipped and his name and address had worn off his collar ,so we had a look around for an hour but no sign. About 3.PM we take the girls for another walk so i thought again we would spend some time looking in the indicated vicinity but before we left i decided to ring for an update and guess what they found good old Charlie in the back thank heavens for that.
    4) Taking the girls the vets this morning there a speeding camera on the main road that never has any batteries in though it got me 6 years go but since then its never can off ,well somebody must have put new batteries in sneakily last night cos the blxxxx thing took my photo this morning
    5) And last but not least this laptop is cutting out on me so i think i will have to get a new one ,two weeks ago i bought another boys toy a Nikon D80 digital SLR camera and two expensive lenses well tht could have been my grand for a new laptop ,oh well it never works out like that.

    I think you should call your consultant friend.
