  1. hey, had a sound time yesterday your dogs are looking well, where we going at weekend?

  2. i thaut live vaccines have been around for ages? Nobivac parvo-c is a live vaccine, if you look at the clinical data it states the immunity lasts for at least 3 years. the reason its called live is because its a small dose of the actual illness that you want them to get immunity to and can be shed in small amounts for 8 days after vaccination and the animal can show symptoms of the illness vaccinated against, most vaccines start out as live vaccines. the safer vaccines are now killed so there is no risk of shedding the disease/virus after vaccination or showing the clinical symptoms of the illness vaccinated against. feel free to correct me on that the post I put up was a interpretation to what my dad told me obviously it's not 100% as the info is second hand. My dad is the best one to explain it as its his area of expertise. He forgets sometimes I havnt got the same brain as him and goes so technical into things. All I know is the booster is a must and for all you guys who Want the actual science behind it i'l leave for my dad to explain lol. get your dad to post mate and explane what your trying to get at. i dont miss boosters, i just give them what they need when they need it. i must admit i over vaccinate for parvo simply because i live in a parvo hotspot. atb

  4. nice even looking pups atb with them the dog we kept out of our litter at 8 weeks
  5. i dont think anybody would disagree with that. but he wanted to know what age to start his pup on it and imo no pup should need to go on a treadmill for fittness. its so easy to over do things with a growing pup fare enough get them used to the tread but they dont/shouldnt need it for fittness. atb
  6. i understand what you are saying especially if the pup isnt used to it, so what about the puppy milk that has been designed for pups would it be ok for him to give that? skinners puppy milk is supplmented with Bio-mos which is a natural aid to healthy digestive system ( says it on the tub). gaots milk has been used for years to feed orphaned pups and stuff so how can it be so wrong? a milk formulated specificaly for pups is completely different from natural milk so would be absolutely fine for pups if you had to feed it ... a 5 month old pup is way way past being weaned so shouldnt need any milk to supplement its diet what it needs is protein which contains creatine which is the basic building blocks of muscle .... chicken is high in protein as is beef and the fat content in beef will give the pup all the energy it requires so that it doesnt burn up any of its own body fats whilst building itself back up ............... yes mate but we're not talking about a normal healthy pup, i know specially formulated puppy milk isnt the same as natural milk im not stupid! its all well and good telling him to give it chicken and beef but that doesnt cover everything the pup needs.
  7. lyk i said there my fellas hounds i dont hunt them, if u ask him im sure he'll tell u about what he does. If ur that intrested pm him mate
  8. dont bring your dogs round here then mate cos they'd most certainly catch parvo.
  9. Thats abit far for me mate its 170 miles away and i dont drive but thanks for trying mate do you lads not use the royal mail over there? unless there kept refridgerated the wont be any good thats true! unless you just want a parvo jab they dont need the fridge.
  10. my dog shits while he is eating then eats his shit when he is done if you dont watch him :sick: always been told what simoman as said about the sleeping area being to big dog will shit in it yeah probably right, i dont have the problem with mine messing in beds or eating shit. good luck with stopping her tho pal
  11. iv always been told dogs dont shit where they eat, try feeding her in the sleeping area. she might just be a dirty bitch lol
  12. nobody said they where shite there just no substitute for proper physical and mental excersize that a pup would get by going for a walk, they can be a aid to fitness but dont you think a pup would be better off burning its energy through training and play?
  13. i have a few spanielxbeagles by crossing the two u end up with noisey busy flushing dogs wich wont go as far as a pure beagle ideal for small areas and thick cover best fun very exiting quick fire action u can have it seems to cause a few arguments on here from the hound men have these crosses but i would recomend getting one i agree with you there, they dont half smash through the cover and the recall seems alot better. Only thing i find off putting about mine is they eat what they catch in fact they'll eat anything :sick: lol that could just be mine tho. good little dogs/hounds. atb mrs A A spaniel will smash through cover though ,adding hound to that does not make any difference simple fact is as stated you dont get them push out as far on a line as a pure bred hound,and on the hound side of the cross you are hopefully getting voice in cover which you dont get from pure bred spaniels, to me there just handy little curs suitable for flushing from small spots and handy for folk who want to play at keeping a pack or who havent got the space or time needed to work pure hounds,does anybody who works this cross find it difficult keeping there curs true to a scent or do they generaly just hunt any scent in the cover you draw from ?? firstly my young hounds only have a dash of spaniel in them they're mostly beagle, im yet to see the full ability of them as they're just a year old and havnt had a proper season yet. So hedz i'll be able to answer you questions properly after next season no doubt. atb mrs A How much is a dash lass ?? and why only a dash why not just go for the pure bred beagle ?? do ye think the dash of spaniel has made any difference for what purpose ye wanted them for or have ye know experiance of hunting beagles to base your judgement on if ye know what i mean ? im not sure how much is a dash you would have to ask Woods that he bred them, there my fellas hounds i dont hunt them personaly. do these picks count as something to compare them with? thats my fella out with the colne valley beagles.

  18. thanks for the add

  19. i understand what you are saying especially if the pup isnt used to it, so what about the puppy milk that has been designed for pups would it be ok for him to give that? skinners puppy milk is supplmented with Bio-mos which is a natural aid to healthy digestive system ( says it on the tub). gaots milk has been used for years to feed orphaned pups and stuff so how can it be so wrong? socks is pretty clued up when it comes to a dogs diet...feeding ect ..talks sense .he knows his stuff..but i have all ways given young dogs goats milk..and always will...its never done them any harm .seems to do them good .my pup looks a picture of health ...but on a pup under nourished he could well be right it could quite easily give it a upset stomach... yes i agree mate, sorry if it sounds like im trying to question his knowledge, im not!
  20. Yeah and there's plenty of those about thats so true
