Re: Strange illness, has the vet puzzled

It sounds like the dip used to treat the mange was not diluted enough as the same symptoms come up if you do a quick internet search.

Re: Paro (Spanish Unemployment Benefit)

It is capped but I don't have the exact figure and it may have change in the last shake up. It is usually calculated at 80% of the average of the last 6 mths salary and the length of time that you will receive it depends on how long you were working. You will need to go to your local INEM office wit...

Re: help required please

I get several Nigerian scam emails daily, as email mailing lists are sold as a commodity. Some of them are quite imaginitive and the grammar provides me with daily entertainment but, I would never be taken in by one. If I really had been left millions by a relative named Alfred with my surname, I'm ...

So sorry to hear that Oliveview. Sometimes despite our best efforts, it's just not meant to be :(

Re: Any suggestions for feeding a 5 week old puppy?

Higado de cordero (lamb), vacuno (beef), the butchers should sell it but I have also recently seen it in Mercadona. Pigs liver my lot won't touch and it does smell a bit like wee so can't say I blame them but, calf's/beef they loved. Ox heart they nearly knocked me over trying to get hold of. It's n...

Re: Any suggestions for feeding a 5 week old puppy?

I would personally leave out the cereal as it plays havoc with many dog's digestive systems. My dog had chronic 'squirts' when we got him at 10 weeks and after trying every single commercial pet food available, switched to a raw diet. We have only ever had a problem since if he gets hold of cooked m...

Re: Any suggestions for feeding a 5 week old puppy?

I had a kitten like that, in the end I had to wean him on raw chicken as it was the only thing he showed any interest in. He would never lap milk but went straight to solids and I gradually cut down how many syringes of milk (home made formula) he had per day. One of our local butchers sells Ox hear...

That's a good sign that she is feisty!! In my experience with sickly kittens, the more they fight your efforts to save them, the more likely they'll pull through :) If she has viral pneumonia, antibiotics will do no good and will also kill gut flora which is essential to the immune system. Try a lit...

Re: The local Mayor wants us to move the dogs

Aw, poor boy!! I hate seeing dogs with cut ears and docked tails, even worse when it's a DIY job :(. I have a Presa Canario with his natural ears and people keep asking me why they're not cut!! Nooo, don't post a picture!! I'll cry 'cos I can't have him!!! If I win the Euromillions anytime soon and ...

Re: Next of kin?

The children would be his heirs but it would probably be a good idea for him to make a will and nominate someone as a trustee in case they inherit before coming of age.

Re: black treacle

They have mollasses in Mercadona. Brand name Nuestra Señora del Carmen 'Jugo de la Caña de azúcar' also known as 'Miel de Caña'. Usually next to the honey, sugar and jams in a short jar with a yellow label. That's not the same at all - it's much lighter than black treacle - very nice though - espec...

Re: Dog with a rash on his belly

Didn't the aloe vera help? Rooibos tea is good for itching rashes. I agree with Enrique apart from leaving the dog to itch with a collar on and doing nothing about it. It would drive me demented not being able ti get to an itch, let alone a dog! Lots of non harmful ways to help with the itch. You ca...

Water Dog needs urgent home

Home needed urgently for a male, chocolate coloured Spanish water dog. He is 5 months old, chipped, fully vaxxed with passport and is used to children.

Will post photos when I receive them. Please PM me in the first instance and I will pass details on.

Many thanks
