when experienced terrier lads pass away.


Recommended Posts

I reckon pain killers are a great job when a terrier has taken a bit. When you think about it if you had for instance a toothache first thing apart from a dentist is painkillers so what's the difference to dogs and IMO it helps to get them eating quicker.

It s good that there s still younger lads coming through , but I watched a few lads out and noticed a few things that made me cringe . Maybe I’m set in my ways to much. First was dog in then box was o

If the dog is staying there aint too much more to know or am I wrong all these years. I like to get a spade between combatants to save injuries but others seem to revel in combat Seen some bad choices

A vet told me to never give pain killers to a dog with a working injury , as it masked the pain and made the dogs a lots less cautious, resulting in them banging  themselves or jumping about making injuries worst or making them heal slower

Correct Glynn, yet in moderation with a trained eye makes a big difference, as you know.

Is your vet talking about Morphine or something?

Rimadyl or Metacam aren't that powerful that a dog is going to be unaware. But they will be more comfortable and reduced swelling will increase blood flow and speed up wound healing.

I wouldn't use it to get a lurcher back galloping sooner, but for terriers there's big benefits.

just pain killers , his view was dogs don't know they have been given pain killers they know the pain has gone so instead of being careful with themselves they may damage themselves more because the injury is masked but still there , your doctor doesn't say take these pain killers and all  is fine he tell you steady up for a few days , vet may tell the dog that but it may not understand ,

The same could be said for humans but that's not the case, if it aids comfort it's a no brainer IMO.

In fairness Glyn its their head and face that 99% of the time take a little bit so its not as if their going to go around banging the their head of a wall or such. When a terrier takes a bit and its laid up and sore I can't see any harm in helping to comfort it a little using a mild pain killer jmho.

each to there own i'll stay with what my vet has told me , i wont go against what he says as i could get done for not getting my terriers proper treatment from a vet , its a minefield 

Now Glyn no need to state the obvious as we all get proper treatment for our dogs when they need it but sometimes they don't always need vetenary attention and a good job too as them vets sure know how to charge.

Fat man stating the obvious is what is done on forums, what is  obvious and common knowledge to many it isn't to newbi's many may not know that one of the easiest ways the rspca take peoples dogs is because they have not taken them to be treated by a vet

I agree with you Glyn but not only are you educating the terrier lads that are not in the know your also educating the antis as 90% of the c**ts have not a clue of the laws. That's what gets me on here and im not referring to you Glyn but the amount of lads that come on here asking stupid questions that 90% of the time are illegal on an open forum instead of just doing what they have to do and no one the wiser for it but instead they have to tell the world and draw unwanted attention upon themselves.

      Hello, would just like a few pointers from the more experienced members than me on the best way or their particular methods of breaking terriers to livestock? I have a relative that keeps poultry on an allotment that would let me take my pup through, but he’s 5 months now and like most working bred terriers he’s feisty and excited by fur and feather. I wouldn’t want any nasty mistakes to happen so any advice would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

      Hello there. I have a jack Russell pup coming in the next few weeks when he is ready to leave his mother. He’s from working stock and I am hoping to try him out when he’s ready. I would just like to get some advice or pointers from people on here as to what sort of diet you think is best for working terriers? I Want to keep him in best condition I can, strong and healthy. All comments very much appreciated.
