Hi archie1306,
Just to clarify, it is asprin for a sprain - I know I said asprin in the last para but I should have made it clear at the beginning. So I've edited it.  Cheers.

Can anyone offer advice.
Our stunning boy Riley at 7 months old has started to eat poo.Not his own other dogs.At first ,although unpleasant,it wasn't much of a problem.This has now escalated and is upsetting the family as he has permanent diarrhoea.I know we could walk him on a lead but as we live

I only ever use the instructions on the packet as a guideline, and go by how the dog looks. When the pup is standing you should be able to see a waistline but not ribs. You should be able to feel the ribs when you run your hand along, but not sticking out. Alf gets about 20% more than the food instructions say, but he is the ideal weight according to my vet so I will carry on as I am.

I found two on Lola a month or so ago, never had one from local walks previously and considered a seresto for them both as Lola is fine but Roxy is too much of a wriggler to get anything off but I would rather not if I can avoid it.  I asked around on facebook and some folk suggested using a little Rose Geranium essential oil on their collars as a non chemical alternative.  I prefer not to use spot ons etc if I don't need to (although I will if I need to) particularly as they do sleep with me and Roxy swims a lot and so on. 

Well they only wear collars for going for walks and they are biothane so not much good for holding an oil so I made a spray, I used a few drops of rose geranium, lavender and cedarwood and put them in some cider vinegar.  I give it a good shake a spray before each walk.  So far I have seen no more ticks.  We have just had a week in sheep country in Wales too and still spotted nothing which is unusual.  Maybe we have been luck since but maybe it is the spray.  I am going to carry on with it until I start spotting ticks and then will review from there

You don't get any for ages, then three come along at once!!

Tweaked 3 off Rosie with the twister Thursday, then another 3 today!!

Spoke to one of the Vet Nurses today when at Pets at Home and mentioned a Seresto collar. Problem is though she is so often in water I wondered if it would cancel out any efficiency.

Wondered if they are completely safe, she has Drontal and Advocate so wouldn't want to cause any reactions.

It also has been known (Usually during thundery weather) for her to sleep at the end of our bed at night  Roll Eyes and have read that dogs wearing these collars shouldn't be allowed to sleep near humans???

I am now not sure if the poss benefits outweigh the worries, would be really grateful for any opinions please  Smiley Smiley
