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

In the past year that I've had Harry, I've noticed he has some strange  dietary choices. He's never been keen on dry food, which doesn't really concern me, he eats steak twice a week , chicken ,once or twice too,then regular wet dog food, he loves vegetables.
When I cook I always do for Harry too, carrots, parsnips, peas,loves them. Whats a bit strange, he also loves cabbage,kale, turnips, the strange thing, he likes them raw too. He only gets these three once a week, small portion, & only one ,not all three, or every window in the house would be opened. I owned dogs nigh on fifty years now, never saw one steal raw cabbage leaves or beg pieces of raw turnip & readily devour them... He's very fond of red apples too, but  raw turnip... Do any of your Springers like out of the ordinary foods Guys?

My two love raw veg,turnip ,cauliflower,broccoli, carrot,peas etc.
The only one I've found that they are not keen on is parsnip.

They also love tomatoes and sit at the greenhouse door when I'm watering up eagerly waiting for one.

For my pups always cucuumber, carrot, turnip, swede,  sweet potato, celery.  Most of them like most of the veg.  Chill them and they are great chews for teething pups, and they go on to like them later.

Peggy Sue (legal age) always likes a finger or two of Chardonnay but won't touch Sauvigion Blanc.....

will try celery with Harry,as I like it myself. Alcohol, I'm teetotal, but cindy,many years back was partial to Guinness, but one time a friend of my brother came home from tour of duty in Lebanon, brought what could only be described as paint stripper, posing as a beverage home. Poor Cindy had a drop, slept for the night, the next day she spent with her head ,on the hearth of the fireplace, in front of a blazing fire, seemed the heat was helping the hangover, she became an abstainer after that.Harry can get very boisterous if he has too much protein, so he'll be giving the booze a wide berth too  Grin Wink

Memories - It was after we had travelled to Skye to choose our LMB (2 Feb 2013) but before picking her up a couple of weeks later. One evening I came home, totally exhausted after a rather unpleasant day at work, when the OH, enjoying a 'finger or two' of  his favourite whisky, greeted me with: "I think we cannot have that Skye puppy". I remember screaming at him "why, what happened, will Enid not let us have her ...?"   Martin pointed to the bottle of Talisker and asked me if I had ever noticed where this distillery was  -  Carbost, birthplace of our future puppy.  He said "if we get her, we can be sure she'll be after her local drink and I'll have to put a strong lock on the cabinet if I want a drop too."   I remember telling Enid about this episode and her reassuring note was, just like in the post above, that only Peggy Sue enjoys that finger of Chardonnay, her other dogs including the puppies were strict teetotallers.   Indeed, our Skye Jewel has never shown any interest in her hometown drink.

Both of mine drink squash out of my glass but nothing alcoholic. Roxy likes veg so Lola eats it too in case she is missing out. Then usually looks a bit horrified at the taste  he he
