Fatberg warning Print E-mail
Tuesday, 14 November 2017 11:54

Deadly palm oil fatbergs have been found washed up on the UK's west coast beaches following the Caribbean storms.  These congealed lumps of fat are often irresistible to dogs but they can prove fatal.  (Several dogs died after fatbergs were washed up on Cornwall's beaches in 2014).  They have been spotted on beaches in Cumbria, Lancashire, Wales and Cornwall and several councils have erected signs urging walkers to keep their dogs on leads and to report sightings.

 
A cautionary tale Print E-mail

Two friends set off for a walk with their dogs as they had often done before.  After a while Friend A handed the lead of her dog to Friend B so that she could go and get them both coffees.  Unfortunately Friend A's dog was bigger than Friend B was used to and pulled her over,  seriously hurting her.  She sued her friend and the judge agreed that Friend A was negligent, awarding Friend B damages and costs.  A cautionary tale indeed...

 
Fireworks and dogs Print E-mail
Friday, 03 November 2017 11:19
We're coming to that time of the year that spells misery for so many dogs: fireworks night. And in many ways this year will be especially problematic because some people will have displays on the Saturday, others on the Sunday so you may have to face two consecutive nights of bangs. (Of course in some parts, dog owners have to contend with displays all the year round: for New Year, weddings, birthdays etc). For mild cases of angst, the best policy is to close the curtains, turn up the volume on the television and avoid offering the dog comfort as this only convinces him that he is right to worry. More extreme reactions can be helped with sedatives from the vet and/or a DAP diffuser. Here at the CBC we don't wish to be killjoys but we can't help wishing that private firework displays were banned. There are so many impressive organised ones - many of which are relatively inexpensive or even free - why would someone waste a fortune to let off a few fireworks in their back garden?
