I'm looking to have my dog spayed. She is 5 and has had one litter in her life. I'm a little afraid though as I had a female dog before and after she was spayed, she was dripping a little urine every now and then. Not nice when you have carpets around. Why did that happen and is this a common thing after spaying?

Never knew that dogs would catch snakes! My 18 month old Golden Retriever caught a spitting cobra the other day. I came into the front garden, alerted by the incredible din the other dog was making, to see him holding it firmly just behind the head. Gave us a real fright! His coat had venom on it but luckily none got into his eyes and he wasn't bitten! When I called him in, he flung the snake into the air and came to me. I locked him into our kitchen and called the pest control to come and get the snake. Alas (or should I be glad?!) the snake died just after the pest control people put him in a bag. So watch your dogs, I think this one was clever/lucky but next time could be different. These snakes are no laughing matter.
I've just moved over here from the UK for 6 months, and am suffering horse withdrawal symptoms! I've competed in eventing/dressage to Intermediate/Medium levels in the UK, cantered racehorses, exercised polo ponies, taught pony club camp for 3 years to all ages - and I would love to either learn to play polo, or help with exercise/training of horses. Please do email/post a reply if you have any suggestions, or I could help you/you could help me. Thanks. J.

I live in Shelford Road, just off Dunearn. Until last night I had a local Heinz 57 dog. She got ill last night and by about 11 I called the vet at Mount Pleasant Animal Hospitals 24 hr clinic. I explained the symptoms and because she didn't seem desperately unwell we agreed I'd monitor her, call if there was a deterioration and see the vet in the morning. The dog slept in my room and by 2am she was whining softly and couldn't get up anymore. I carried her to the car but by the time I got to the vet, she was dead! He looked for snakebites and such but couldn't find anything. He suspected a poison, but I declined to do an autopsy and blood test. I knew darn well she was just fine, that dog never had anything in all the 12 years I had her and was still fit and playful. Then today I heard from a lady in our road that her dog had also died like that. So beware everyone, I think there is someone out there laying poison bait for dogs! Keep a close eye on your dog when you take it for a walk.
What do most condos recommend or do they have specific rules?The lift at our condo opens into our apartment and I feel that all animals should be transported in the service lift, which is found outside the back-door in the common area and not the lift that we all use to access our apartments. Only last week some animal left its urine in the lift and although cleaned up within an hour or so left an unpleasant odour. All deliveries also use the service lift and not the main front lift.
