And we will be growing plenty of our own Veg and Fruit. What's needed. In short we have the building and land what do we need now.Chaptel No   ( from where)Registering for each type of animal ( with whom)We will be looking at growing all on Pasture ( Chicken Tractor, pig tractor) etc very much land friendly Joel Salatin, Justin Rhodes style ( or that's the current plan).We are very much open to all advise.

Hi, We are moving to France shortly, and bringing two Westies with us. Does anyone know of an English speaking vet in the Gueret area? When we want to take the dogs back to England for holidays they need to see a vet within 48 hours of travelling back in order to use their passports, so we need to find someone who can do this, as well as providing for their care long-term. Chris

We have a great vet, but whilst brilliant with our 4 dogs and cats, I suspect he is not a rabbit specialist.  One of our rabbits has 2 x abcesses, which would need to be surgically removed - does anyone know of a specialist, ideally in the Chalus area?  Thanks.

Hello, I have some pretty loud Loir behind the walls in the loft space in my house. No access to them unless I break the walls or climb 5 meters up the building to the roof where theyre getting in. They run around all night making a racket, chewing wires etc. It's become almost unbearable. Has anyone successfully removed them from their house?Thanks all.

Hi, I'm aware that the maximum number of animals I'd be able to bring into France from the UK at any one time would be 5. Can anyone recommend a pet carrier that could accommodate 9 animals from the UK to Le Dorat? I have 3 small dogs and 6 cats. Many thanks

Has anyone had any experience of cats going missing? We have two cats, brother and sister reared from kittens, both are very much home cats but they have both disappeared within the spate of a month. Very concerned, wondered if anyone was in same situation. We are rural, but only in a small hamlet. Not totally rural. Forest behind us, fields to the front. Can wild animals attack them? Thought about snakes also, as our land is very overgrown.Does anyone know if snakes attack? kill?
