    thanks again, i am never surprised by the rspca , i have had many experiences of their inflexible , unhelpful attitude . having said that , i could never work in a place like that . i havent slept properly since seeing her there. she was frozen with fear ( im going to take a duvet for her tomorrow, a new one so they cant say it needs washing, and if they wont let her hav eit personally im going to not be responsible for my actions !... seriouslytho , if i am to help her i have to stay on talking terms with the staff . will try and get a photo of her too .

    Thank you everyone for helping - It's too bad they won't work with specialist breed rescue, they used to...it was on that Pet Rescue program on C4 years ago

    The Cavalier rescues could tell people on their list that there is a Cvalier there though...Little Dog Rescue are usually great at rehoming, esp Cavaliers so maybe an appeal on their board would help?


    No they shouldn't home a dog with Kennel Cough - let's hope it's that and not heart, but their vets are pretty good. If anyone does visit, make sure to change your clothes and shoes completely before you go home, it is highly contagious - wash thoroughly before going near your own dogs.


    Ear infections are often caused by a damp environment such as being in rescue, which might be why Aled's cleared once you had him - he would also be better looked after in terms of grooming etc. Obviously when they are running around they get more air to the ear canals, you can also flop the ear flaps back when they are asleep.

    ok just got back from seeing her. shes the sweetest thing . very placid and waggy tailed and happy to meet people. she has dry eye which need drops 5 times a day , and otitis which is chronic , her ears are full of wax but they said shes getting better.. i asked about her heart, and they said the vet checked it and shes ok . she has mild kennel cough . apart from her eyes which are a bit cloudy and theres discharge round them , shes not too bad a state. bit overweight and very wooly coat , which i hope is keeping her warm in there they are going to neuter her and maybe operate on a hernia she has if they think it necessary . i have asked if anyone has contacted them with a view to fostering ,but they are adamant shes staying there till they get her a home , only as a last resort will they let anyone take her if just to foster. took her a duvet , and im going back to see her next week , or tomorrow if i can .. my dog is due her first booster on tuesday and im going to see if she can have kennel cough done at same time , then i can visit without worrying about that.. is there anything i can do .. feel a bit lost when ive been places like that, the people are so inflexible..i suppose theyve seen it all though working there. one dog had been found in a house after 4 days alone and brought in today

    It's really heartbreaking when you think of the hardship some dogs have to endure. At least this little one has had a visit from a caring person, hopefully she will get over her kennel cough quickly and out of there as soon as possible. It's really hard to imagine what conditions must be like there, but dogs are resilient and as soon as she is homed all that will be a thing of the past for her.

    Have you checked missing cavs on DogLost? If you've only checked locally do check all areas. Especially girlies missing over 6 months ie spayed and haven't come into season therefore of no use to BYBs.

    Noticed Poppy a tricolour missing (thought stolen) from Wales since March 24th.

    Crikey, Fifer - that's an AWFUL thought, but I'm glad you posted it as it's made me realise about the 6 months' business and spayed bitches.

    What a grim reminder though

    Meanwhile, can ANYONE on CT consider adopting this poor little girl from the RSPCA, just to get her out of that miserable place before Christmas? Or do you know anyone who might help?

    Will crosspost this thread to RAFA, FOA RCT and TLDR, just in case.....

    The little girl has three potential adopters going to visit this afternoon. Hopefully one of them will take her home. If not we have offered her a foster home as we have been trying to get her out of there since Thursday.

    hi, i have asked if i can have her until a home is found ,m they wont let her go anywhere but a permanent home. i should just have offered to have her , but i cannot afford to pay for the drops , also im self employed as a childminder , and would you believe that goes against me!!! its there policy to not rehome with kids under 5 .. i have explained how we have to have clear procedures to show how we supervise the children and animals but its like banging my head on a brick wall. she has kennel cough , im taking my ruby for her first booster on tuesday , and am thinking of asking for the vaccine against this so i dont need to worry about that . a few of my facebook friends have shown interest, but its a big commitment to take on , its sad , she is a lovely dog in every way but for her health , presumably thats the reason shes ended up there .. i have looked on doglost , she was picked up on 17th nov.. and although she looks a bit like poppy on there , its not her, she has more black on her back x

    Fantastic news!!


    Re the eye meds - dry eye can usually be managed with viscotears during the day and Lacrilube at night - both can be bought over the counter from the chemist at a very reasonable price


    Sometimes vets recommend Optimmune which is far more expensive, results seem to be fairly mixed, I've never had much success with it to be honest.
