Hernias, dog injured absolutely gutted


Recommended Posts

Just starting to get ready for my first season with the dog and it he started crying a lot for no apparent reason which then got a lot worse very quickly. He's currently on anti inflammatories and pain killers (prescribed by vet) and just waiting to see how if his condition changes this week. If not it's €500 for a CAT scan at a specialist to see what it is. 

Vet says it's either a muscular injury or a hernia (somewhere in his neck). The other day he and the whippet decided to running jump off a 3m wall for some reason which may or may not be related (was fine for a few days after). 

Just wondered if anyone has had anything similar and if their dog was able to recover 100%. Absolutely gutted, not nice seeing him in the state he's in at the moment.

from what you say, it sounds more like the dog has a trapped  nerve some where from its neck along its spine,  maybe take him to  a good boneman, give him anti inflammatorys, and a lot of rest,if that dont work   and hes no better, no option but a good working dog vet.atb.

Skip the first stage and just go to a good working dog vet / physio.

      Just got this stunning little bitch, nearly 12 months old, Deerhound x Bedie grey.
      I used to go out with my dad's Lurchers when I was a kid but I'm a female in my 30's now and struggling to get back into the swing of things.
      I'd love to have this girl knocking down bunnies but I just don't know where to start, I've barely seen a rabbit or and other quarry since I moved here.
      Any of you experts in my area fancy giving me some advice/practical experience (hunting related only)

      Some of you may remember back in March 21 I had my bitch spayed and a lump removed from her teats.
      Another lump has formed and after having a biopsy the result is that it's deffo cancer. 😢 
      Vet says we're looking at about a grand to treat/remove it with no guarantee of success.
      She will be 12 in about 6 weeks.
      I'm monitoring the size and if it's growing quickly it's gonna be a PTS scenario but I'm of the mind to see how she goes over the summer and let her get some sun on her back and then PTS, obviously if she's feeling it I'll do the deed sooner.
      f***ing dogs eh?
      Cheers, D.

      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

      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
