Hi, I am hopeing for some advice. My husband will be travelling across soon to pick up the keys to our new home and start doing some work. Our Border Collie will be joining him on the trip. I am now looking for an english speaking vet for him to visit before returning to the UK. We are looking to use this vet regularly once we have moved to Puivert permanently. Thank you in advance. email@example.com
hello. I am looking for a bit of advice. We currently operate a livery yard in Scotland although most of our family moved to Marseillan and surrounding many years ago. There is a chance we have found a property near Marseillan which would be ideal for horses. We are a natural horse yard here and thinking of moving to have the same system in France with a paddock paradise style yard with barefoot horses and a track system through the land to encourage natural movement of the horses rather than enclosed in a square paddock. My question is, are there any facilities like this that we can visit and what is the horse community like in the south west
Hi, I'm planning on taking my two boxers with me down to just outside Perpignan at the beginning of August, so will need to go through the rigmarole getting them wormed in France before I return to the UK. Can anyone recommend an english-speaking vet in the area that carries out the treatment, endorses the passport etc.? I know individual vet details can't be posted openly, so would appreciate any recommendations by PM please! ThanksAlex
I am thinking of setting up a small pet sitting service so that your animals can stay in their familiar surroundings whilst you are away and I come in once, twice or three times a day to feed them, walk them if they are dogs and generally play and socialise them. I will be based in the Quillan area so anywhere not too far away would be fine. I am just wondering if there is a demand in the Quillan/Esperaza area for this. Any info greatly appreciated.
A friend and supporter of Cahors Dog Refuge has contacted me with a plea for help, so can we perhaps use the power of the internet to help find a 6 year old, spayed, Chow Chow bitch (distinctive breed, shaggy red coat and black tongue!) stolen from her owners' Cornish holiday garden just over 1 year ago. Very recent information has led them to Ireland where they have heard that she may now have been adopted by people who live in the Dordogne area of France and who are maybe unaware that she had been stolen. Information suggests a wealthy family with a special interest in unusual breeds. English owners of Lexie are Janet and Paul Jurczuk of Derbyshire and they remain desperate to get her back with them and are offering a large reward for her recovery. Lexie is microchipped through PETRACC in the UK, number 97720000747382. There's a Facebook page for full details https://www.facebook.com/pages/Help-find-LEXIE-the-Chow-Chow-Cornwall-UK/1406496592965042 Just in case someone in this area has some information, please tell all your friends, Refuges, Vets etc., She's out there somewhere! Thank you.

Hi - For years Ive been buying our dog croquettes off a couple of companies online Zooplus and Pets Animalia - but Ive recently found a couple of much cheaper sites Zoofast.fr and Petsonic - which is a spanish site - delivery for us with Zoofast was within 5 days although sometimes can be 10 days. However with the cost savings I would happily wait for 10days and just order earlier. Hope others find the sites more economical too Carol x
