Our darling Doris has a lump, we first noticed it yesterday. So yesterday evening I phoned up a VetFone vet from MoreTh>n insurance (which we have access to as Wagglepets Ambassadors) and they advised me that there was no major panic but she would need seeing by our local vet soon. They talked through basic symptoms and ruled out the need for emergency veterinary treatment, which was helpful as it was after opening hours and a weekend. Pricey! Doris is in no obvious pain, walking and running fine, eating and drinking as normal. If she was suffering at all I would have paid the out of hours call out charges and had her seen immediately.
This month I asked Wagglepets for a bit of help. Our Freya is a fussy hound, she gets bored then refuses to eat particular brands of food. She decided she no longer likes the RSCPA dry food that Wagglepets were sending us, and they switched us over to Royal Canin, no drama. In the box this time were the usual poop bags, various biscuit based treats, a blanket and flea treatment. The flea spot on couldn’t have come at a better time, Freya had recently got her first ever tick, I did it all wrong and removed it without a special tool or gloves.

If you have a dog you’ll know that they really are family and my pet dogs have always had gifts. Since the internet happened it has been very easy to get a thoughtful gift for dogs or for the owner. Treat boxes. If you are shopping mainly for the owners then monthly boxes are a good idea, Pawsome box for example.

The Christmas Pawsome box *contains a squeaky vinyl Santa, a tennis ball on chewable rope, a seriously cute robin teddy, posh Biogance dog shampoo, chocolate orange treats, miniature Christmas pudding treats and some Trixie chews. As normal it has a little leaflet about the products, which is helpful. I had a nosey […]
I am very happy to say I’m a wagglepets blogger. Yay! What is Wagglepets you’re wondering? Well it’s a subscription service for dogs with a difference – it’s for the stuff you need. The idea is your best pals food gets delivered to the door, along with treats, preventative treatments, poop bags and occasional toys. It also comes with pet insurance from MoreTh>n and with a clumsy dog like Freya in the house I understand the importance of insurance. When she jumped out of the window not so long back it cost us a few quid, and it would have been more except she bounced off the greenhouse roof which seemingly saved her from broken bones. Just a couple of weeks back Freya needed emergency treatment for chocolate poisioning, she stole the advent calendar chocs, not a lot but it hit her hard. She was acting slow and confused – […]
