Re: Limping :(

The vet says that Natsu has torn her Cruciate Ligament. http://www.copelandvets.co.uk/fact-sheet-cruciate-tears.html Since Natsu is smallish and not overweight (approx 12kg), she is a candidate for the lateral suture procedure, which involves surgery to put a suture into her leg bones and hence stab...

Limping :(

Natsu went out saturday morning and did her usual run at the back fence to make sure there aren't any intruders during the night. :bleh: When she came back she was limping! She didn't make any noise when I felt her feet and legs (and she's usually a real wimp, screams at any pain) We went to the vet...

Re: Matted fur helppppp!!!

OK! I think I maybe shouldn't be too impatient and keep combing everyday. Maybe give her another shampoo and conditioner in a couple of weeks and see how it goes. Yea, now that's it's nice outside I just sit outside on the patio while the little girl runs around in the garden... and comb Natsu. migh...

Re: Matted fur helppppp!!!

AMAZING! The greyhound comb and ice on ice combo really go a long way in increasing Natsu's tolerance to detangling and dematting. I ordered the wrong version of the Mars coat King... I should have gotten the 8 teeth rather than 20. Oh well... Have to return and order the right one. Question: Natsu'...

Re: Matted fur helppppp!!!

Natsu is a diva. She loves a gentle massaging brushout with a posh pin brush. It's when I try to rake out all the overwhelmingly fluffy undercoat and then I hit a mat----- she shrieks and jumps out of my arms and will not come back to me. And the gentle brushing worked fine in Singapore because her ...

Re: Matted fur helppppp!!!

I think I've managed to get most of the mats out. I need a tool for regular maintenance, which will get her undercoat out easily and without pain. Any suggestions? :)

What about the Furminator or https://www.amazon.co.uk/Magicfly-Profe ... B00L4WF7W4?

Matted fur helppppp!!!

I've done a bad thing.... I gave Natsu (Japanese Spitz) a bath without realising how matted her undercoat actually was! Her fur is incredibly matted in places now and I've had to cut off her fur off her sides... She looks like someone's been trying to eat her :bawl: It has never ever been this bad b...

Nail trimming

I've been having problems trimming Kobe's nails recently. He's never been this bad before we moved to London. Treats don't even work now. A couple of months ago, I forcibly trimmed his nails... He now doesn't really trust me, to the extent that he sometimes won't come out of his crate when I call hi...
