Fat doesn't digest quickly and I wouldn't feed when running Bill if I read it right 👍

Ta double figures with teams a jukels and when I say double figures I mean double hundreds. It works seen hyperglemic jukels snap out a there episodes in a few mome ts when the tripe fat his utilised tripe his one of the easiliest flesh items two digest same goes fa the fat offa it. And fa using nought when running very hard big numbers athats your perogative yall. Not get the same results from the jukel pfully  handled correctly atb bill

Can’t understand most of that , but parts I did 

fat is fat and burns slower and is the best source of energy and fed long before you go out ;it’s not instant like you say , where sugar or  a similar fast carb and water would be

I wouldn’t have thought fat would get into the system like that bill, the dog I got now had problems with muscles cramping up after a handful of continuous runs which I expect is brought on by the muscles getting fatigue. Spoke to the vets they wanted to do all the usual shit that would cost lots of money, blood tests and other different examinations. Asked about it on this forum and turns out half a teaspoon of bicarbonate over his food daily cured the problem.

my dog was having the same problems with cramp trigger.he would start screaming while looking at his back thigh's 

fuji on here recommended tinned tomatoes mixed in his food a few times a week.

its the potasium level being low.

i buy the whole plum tomatoes in a tin.not the allready chopped as i think they are all the scraps of tomatoes gathered up and put in the tin.

the dogs never had cramp since...

What happens if you have a low potassium level?
In hypokalemia, the level of potassium in blood is too low. A low potassium level has many causes but usually results from vomiting, diarrhea, adrenal gland disorders, or use of diuretics. A low potassium level can make muscles feel weak, cramp, twitch, or even become paralyzed, and abnormal heart rhythms may develop.

spot on.my dog is a fussy eater.but loves the tomatoes maybe he knows the benefit from them.like a pregnant woman craving certain food's im quite sure thats it.

have thought about it before.

Why do you crave certain foods when pregnant?
It seems logical that cravings might be due to something lacking in the diet, or an increased need for certain vitamins and minerals. ... Food cravings and sudden food aversions may have something to with the effects of pregnancy hormones, which can change the way some foods taste and smell.

Yep  pottasium has that affect use that fa muscle cramps but a jukel usi g up his reserves of energy needs fats putting back in the system I have used this ta good affect fa yrs Trigg topping up the energy levels running out a steam his quite often burnt out calories needed. Totally different than cramps. Atb bill

The key to this problem is two fold ,all my whippets including crosses along with my two greyhound whippets are fussy eaters .The first thing Id do is get a coat for her &  next Id up the fat content of her food ,this can be a problem as most don't like the fat but I sneak it in but mixing it up after mixing and feeding it warm .

      What do folk use for keeping their dogs at the height of cleanliness? 
      Mostly talking about ears here, the amount of gunk that seems to build up resulting in all night head shaking is phenomenal. 
      How cropped are you keeping nails? Best tooth and gum care?
      Seems not to be a topic but I know everybody is keeping their dogs in top condition

      My mate who i do a bit of ratting with is looking for a Whippet or Whippety Lurcher pup.
      Idealy he's looking for a small, fast dog that is tough enough to rat alongside terriers, ferret and lamp with.
      A full whippet would be great but one with plenty of poke and will get stuck in to the rough and tumble of ditch side ratting days on freezing open land.
      There's no rush but if anyone can point him in the right direction that would be welcome.
      Thanks.

      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.

      I’m looking for some advice as we recently rescued a whippet lurcher mix. She’s extremely friendly and sociable with dogs and people but is constantly biting and grabbing our older dogs legs, ears and neck. He’s s cavachon and doesn’t really care for playing or interacting with other dogs so he rarely snaps or growls at her when she starts. He’ll just stand there looking at us or try to run away. She’s never been aggressive towards him and regularly try’s to protect him if other dogs get rough with him. However she’s constantly biting at him when he starts barking or when’s she too excited. We separate her and tell her no but so far it’s not working and he’s doing little to tell her to stop. My worry is he’s much smaller then her and that she might accidentally hurt him if we weren’t there to stop it. Is this common Lurcher behaviour and any suggestions? Thanks
