Can anyone recommend a sympathetic vet who would consider spaying a stray cat for a reduced fee. Suspect this cat has Pyometra so needs prompt attention. Prepared to contribute but limited budget ( have already adopted 5 cats and 2 dogs). Disappointing response from my vet at Savigné. Unable to get response from Assocs to pres.Informed, concise responses only please rather than a debate.Will only get one chance to trap.Thank you.
Can any help or advise us on where we can find a good reliable house sitter for 4 weeks next year ,1 week in April and 3 weeks in May. we have 3 ponies and 2 dogs to be cared for while we are away as well as looking after the house .We live 10 mins away from Lezay 79120. Any advise would be grateful.
Hello just looking for some info about dogs being used to visit people in hospital or retirement homes.(chien visiteur) I wanted to do it as i have a little dog who is very good natured and obedient. I went along in the cold and fog this morning to an outdoor obedience class. We only lasted 10 minutes as my dog didn't fancy sitting when instructed (in French) in the mud, and was shivering like mad!! To come to the point does anyone know of any similar scheme that exists - without dog obedience classes-104 e for the year and a training course 75 euros. And obligation to retrain the dog every 2 years I did say that this was a volontary pastime ie unpaid! Is there nothing spontaneous about?
Hi My nearly 13 year old French (speaks English) daughter is mad about horses. She has "Galop 3" and would love to help out and spend more time with horses around Melle 79500 .We have already tried her local stables where she goes for weekly lessons but they already have enough little helpers at the moment !Thanks in advance
Hi all, Does anyone know of a reputable breeder in France for either Working (Field) Cocker Spaniels OR Working (field) Springer Spaniels? Distance not too much of a problem. We were thinking of bringing over a pup from a breeder in the UK that we used for our last dog, but that does not seem very practical due to the rules.
Hi, we are investigating the process of bringing a pup from the UK to France. She is currently only 3 weeks old, so still with her mother. Does anyone out there have any experience of the proper way of doing this. She will be Chipped and Vaccinated at the appropriate time in the UK. We usually travel through the tunnel with our other fully grown dogs who have had their passports for years. Although we always pay the relevant fare for them, we have never had to scan or show the pet passports when leaving the UK or indeed entering France. So, I guess my question is, can I pick her up in 6 weeks or so when she is ready to leave her mum, drive over to France with her and get Passport and Rabies stuff done here?
Hi, we have a 19 week old Cockerpoo and know that he will need regular hair cutting as he gets older. Can anyone recommend a good and reliable dog groomer in and around the Civray area (we are prepared to travel a bit to get a recommended person). When we have asked local groomers about a “teddy bear cut for a cockerpoo” so far they have all looked at us as if we are mad (Even English groomers)! Thanks!
Hi,I am totaly new to discussion groups and apologise in advance if this is a previously covered topic.We will be spending a month or two in Mid France early 2018 and hopefully moving there permanently later in the year.We have three Alaskan Malamutes who have been on the BARF diet for over ten years now and they thrive on it.The BARF diet is gaining quite a big following here in the UK in recent years and there are now several good suppliers of the raw meat and bones.But to bring up to two months supply with us is not very practical and if we move there permanently I would need to find a proper supplier or a good butcher or abattoir.We would need reasonable quantities and regular supplies of:Chicken Carcasses, Necks & WingsTurkey Necks & WingsLamb RibsMinced raw meats and offalHearts, Livers, Kidneys, Tripe.Any other, otherwise waste cuts and bits.Any suggestions, would be most appreciated.BRIAN.
