flee and worm treatments

HI all

just wish to share some comments about the flee and worm treatments. We live in the UK and, over the years, we always treated Oberon with drontal (every 3 months) and advocate pipette (monthly).

now, our vet changed the suggested course of action and…

how to entairtain our senor dogs?

While driving back from Corsica to the UK, I did a stop in Les Houches after the Mont Blanc Tunnel, just to shake my legs. The one on the background is the Aguille Verte (Mont Blanc) !

black spot in the eye: NICE NEWS!!

Dear all: we just had a good outcome regarding the post below! We had the results of the biopsy and the spot  was benign: no one single abnormal cell was visible !!!  I am so glad we removed it and did the test: now we know it was nothing nasty and is not going to come back again :))) A simple growing pigment,  in the end!

Oberon doesnt quite understand why we are all so happy and smiling, i think  he just decided that he's going to be  happy and smiling  as well becase we are…
