Rufus also suffers from this conditon & he has also had the operation at 9 months old after his stomach flipped, he is now 3. We were told by the vet that he will never get rid of this condition & we will always have to put up with it, its a very tiresome process for owner & dog. We had tests done to also reveal that he was gluten intolerant. So we have now changed his food to James Wellbeloved dried kibble, 3 small feeds a day & nothing else, light exercise an hour after or before feeding. We have the odd bloating spell, so we use infacol to release his wind & also rub & wind his belly. But, he is doing ALOT better than before. I hope that rosco's condition eases & starts to get better soon :-) xo
Dear Rita, We are so impressed with the photos of your Setters sledging in Sweden we would love to use them in one of our South African Setter Newsletter in conjunction with a short article about IS as sled dogs. We have located a couple of old photos of Don Cordingly with a team of 7 IS in 1935 and another of John Lyman's long team in 1960's. If you are willing please e-mail you photos to firstname.lastname@example.org We write the Newsletter for the locals out of love of the breed, so no fee could be paid.
We completed the "Legacy" article concerning the entwinement of the Irish kennel of Derrycarne and Maureen MacKeever with our SA Redsun and the McBrides which can be read on Michelle Webster Hooleys IS Pedigree website look under Menu Famous Kennels which maybe of interest to you along with others we have written.
