    Hi Mark,
    Just tried to PM you with regards to an RSPCA campaign I'm running but was unable to send it as says you have no storage in your inbox.

    In short we have a chance to protect racing greyhounds from an uncertain future through legislation but need thousands to send a letter to the Government by 22nd July so timings are really tight!

    I will try and re send in a while, just thought I'd let you know.

    Katie

    Hi. My name is Val, I have a white german shephard called bess. Bess had keyhole surgury to the heart yesterday to correct a grade 6 heart murmer. She went in the vets in the morning and walked out in the afternoon. Today she is playing! But what I want to stress is I rescued Bess from a puppy farm. My vet diagnosed her with a heart murmer straight away and told me I should take her back. I could not put her back in those conditions. The heart murmer grew worse and the thrill to the side of the chest was easy to feel. I got her to a cardiologist who gave me three choices, leave it and she will die, open heart surgury or key hole surgury. What was I to do but to go for the best option for my dog. I am happy to say I am astounded by the results of the keyhole, but I am unhappy to say the effect on my credit card is a large black hole. I would like to see this posted on your site as a warning for all those who might just want a cute fluffy bargain..In my book that does not exist.

    Dog, cat, horse, iguana, rabbit, gerbil, spider, rat, cockatoo, lizard, ferret, parrot…

    Whatever your pet – if you’re worried or embarrassed by a problem it has - whether medical or behavioural – please get in touch…

    I am working on a research project at the moment (not presently for broadcast) for Maverick Television (Maverick Television: Maverick Television) and I am looking for people who have pets, but are scratching their heads with a problem their pet may have.

    It could be behavioural or medical, big or small… whatever it is, I’d like to hear about it.

    ... could be a dog with bad wind; an overweight cat; a shy guinea-pig; a randy pony; a swearing parrot; an attention seeking lizard; a hyper-active rabbit, an aggressive hamster... absolutely anything!

    May be it is not your pet – but a loved one’s that you have concerns about? That’s fine too…

    Get in touch and I’ll explain a little bit more about the project.

    The number is 0121 771 1812 (ask for me Jo Harding) or j.harding@mavericktv.co.uk

    Many Thanks, jo.

    Hi, I have already posted on the Dog Forum, so I hope you wont mind adding it here, A Rescue Centre which is close to me faces closure, because the local National Park Authority has decided in it's wisdom that the Rescue Centre needs planning permission to do what it's already doing! The Rescue Centre is asking for anyone who is concerned to e-mail The National Park Planning Dept to pledge their support for the Planning Application to be granted, please note this is not a request for money, but merely an e-mail, apparently the more positive e-mails received, the more favourably the application will be viewed, here is a link to the rescue centre where you can get more information :- Home - GREEN ACRES ANIMAL RESCUE , this centre rescues cats and kittens as well as dogs. I have no connection with Greenacres, I am just a concerned dog owner. wayne.

    When I first time visited to pet shop at Feel Good UK, then I saw different pets . I really get surprised after watching them. They were beautiful. From them I like one beautiful rabbit's pet , it was amazing. I had never show this kind of pet in my life, But After some time it died. I never forget this incident.

    Lloyds Banking Group (LBG) has performed a massive U-turn and will now reinstate pet insurance for thousands of customers, after originally axing cover.

    The 4,500 customers whose pets had a medical condition covered by Halifax or Lloyds TSB, both part of LBG, when the providers withdrew from the market will be offered new cover.

    The new policy, Halifax Pet Cover, will cover an animal's pre-existing conditions, if protected on the original plan, plus any new problems that may occur.

    To all pet owners who are out of the uk with thier pets or about to leave, please follow the link below to be informed about microchip failure in respect to the pet passport. One of our dogs microchips failed when we about to return to the uk after being in france working since may. Nightmare. We now have two weeks to go before we can return with our dogs. It's a 21 day wait after obtaining a new pet passport. We had no where to go, we couldn't just leave doofy at the port, there we were with two dogs, a mum pebbles and her baby doofy. It was such a drama. We ended up in a tent on a campsite, thankfully, to venue holidays we express our gratitude. Lucky for us we had the Internet and an iPad so we could at least communicate. Thankfully virbac paid for the new passport and a week later, paid for accommodation for us to stay with the dogs until the return date. We had no idea that this batch of microchips were failing. Our work contract finished, we were due home, and there we were with no where to go. Kennels were an option but separating the inseparable dogs was a horrifying thought. We didn't even have the cost of that upfront. Lucky for us that venue holidays rescued us and lucky for us we live 15 miles from a virbac office in the uk who our vet communicated with. I dread to think what would have happened if we had not of had help. So please be aware of the current issue with the 9000 batch.
