Trying a Calming Coat To Ease Canine Anxiety

Since Carma Poodale's death, Scooby has had a hard time adjusting. 
We have put him on an antidepressant to help him.
 I will be talking to the vet about changing it because it doesn't seem to help.

They did everything together. Where you saw one, you saw the other. She was his support system. Scooby hadn't had the best life before he came to us. The stories I could tell you would break your heart. He wasn't cared for very well.

Keeping cool in the Summer time Heat

Summer is pretty much here for most of us, and for us pets its a difficult time.Its alright for those Humans as they can change clothes to suit the weather but we can't we can shed some fur but at the end of the day we are still wearing our fur coats 24/7.So we need plenty of fresh water to drink,cold treats.Fans or air conditioning which most people in the UK don't have so windows open with curtains/Drapes drawn to stop the sun coming in but all some breeze to pull through the house if there is a breeze or a nice shade spot in the garden for us to snooze in.But most of all don't leave us in your car while you nip in to do some shopping better to leave us at home if you need to go to the shops.Remember if you think its hot with shorts and t-shirt on just think how hot it is for us with a fur coat on!

Hope you're all having a great weekend.This is Speedy Reporting for Carma Poodale.com

Carma Poodale is Home,Sorta

As you know on Friday, June 2nd, Carma passed away. This has been one of the most difficult times of my life. Our family is trying to pick up the pieces and if it wasn't for all the support that friends, followers, and even people we didn't even know giving us words of courage, I don't know if we could get through this.

Bunny Meme Saturday....Not the Vets?!!

Did you Know that Bunnies need to have regular health checks at the Vets?I had mine last week.In a bunny health check visit our weight and teeth are check plus I get my heart and eye checked to as well as the vet does a physical feel over around my tummy to make sure that is in working order too.but in the UK and Europe we have to get vaccinations as well as there are a 3 viruses that are fatal to us we have Myxomatosis  which is rare in the US as Cottontails and Black-Tailed Jackrabbits aren't really affected by the virus and is only fatal to European wild rabbits and Domesticated rabbits as they were originally bred from the European wild Rabbits.Cottontails(Sylvilagus Flordanus),Black-Tailed Jackrabbits(Lepus Californicus) and the European wild rabbits are different Species.

There is also RVHD type 1 and RVHD type 2 type 1 has a short incubation period and type 2 has and incubation period of up to 2 weeks before a rabbit show symptoms and again Cottontails and Black-Tailed Jackrabbits aren't really affected by these 2 virus and is fatal to the domestic and European rabbit populations.In the US cases are rare and doesn't Spread beyond local isolated outbreaks in the domestic rabbit populations.In the UK and Europe we have Vaccines that cover all 3 viruses and in Australia they only have the vaccine for RVHD type 1 as Rabbits are considered pests and in some territories they are illegal as a pet and the wild populations are a big problem.

In the US there are no Vaccines available at this time for the 3 viruses, as out breaks of all 3 Viruses are rare and are isolated pockets in the Domestic populations as they don't really affect the Cottontail and Black-Tailed Jackrabbits populations so don't spread very far,

Last week I had my Myxomatosis and RVHD type 1 combi Vaccination and in September I get the one that covers me for RVHD type 2.Any way my Health check was all good news ....except for I need to lose a bit of weight about half a kilo"sigh" so I'm still on the old diet....so rude! Peanut Bunny you're so lucky!

Scooby Doo Visits Kids Day at Farmer's Market

While we are going through our photos from our BlogPaws trip, thought I would tell you about Scooby's big day on Saturday. 

Our family always looks forward to Saturday's because that is our local Farmers' Market day. We love seeing the vendors. There are a couple that we love seeing and always buy from because they have fantastic prices and the quality is wonderful.
