Ben Walton is a Veterinary Orthopaedic Surgeon with special interests in complex lameness investigations and fracture management.
This presentation introduces the viewer to the fundamentals of assessing lameness in dogs. It is suitable for veterinary students, animal physiotherapy students, veterinary nurses, and dog owners and handlers. Vets and animal-physiotherapists might also find it useful as a refresher!
This is a useful graphic showing how to cut your wolfhounds nails.
My three all hate having their nails cut, but I’m reliably informed that if you smear a chopping board or similar with peanut butter (make sure there’s no xylitol in it) then the dog will be so busy licking the tasty chopping board that they won’t even notice that you are cutting their nails.
Perhaps I’ll try it and get it on video, and post that here. 🙂
I was a very proud mum at the Gaitherin’ this year when our celebrity judge Fish (you know, from Marillion… Kayleigh, remember?) and his beautiful wife Simone chose Florrie from a very large class of lovely dogs as their winner of “Dog the Judge most wants to take home”
The Kennel Club is developing Breed Health and Conservation Plans (BHCPs) for all registered dog breeds to ensure that health concerns are identified through evidence-based criteria. This will ensure breeders have useful information and resources to support them in making balanced breeding decisions in the future.
Irish Wolfhounds are in the next round of breeds identified by the KC for this project so we are inviting ALL OWNERS to complete this simple survey, to provide the KC with an up to date and accurate snapshot of the breed’s current health status.
The survey is anonymous and your answers, along with other sources of scientific evidence, will provide important data for our BHCP.
Please go to this link to enter your dog’s information: IW Breed Health Survey 2018
For Breeders, please complete the Breed Health Survey, but in addition, please also complete this additional survey specifically about your breeding experiences over the last 10 years: IW Breeders Experience Survey 2018
THIS SURVEY WILL CLOSE AT MIDNIGHT ON FRIDAY 21ST SEPTEMBER
