    @shri I don't know the vet situation in Pok.but if you need one these guys are good and open 24 hours. I used Kylie for several years when I was in that area.

    The ARK VETERINARY HOSPITAL

    We use the vet in Aberdeen. Friendly and competent. Aberdeen Animal clinic if I recall.

    Great! She can chase our cat. Too laid back and he needs to exercise. ;-)) plenty of toys is great because when a beagle becomes bored.........( all hell breaks loose. House insurance increases......)

    More true beagle escapades... As a kid, my parents would drag me along to the plant nursery for plants et al for the garden. While we were lining up to pay, this car horn keep on beeping, this guy would run out then run back in to try to pay for his plants ets, then the horn would sound and he would run back out, muttering apologies....run back in. My mum asked if he was ok, and the exasperated man explained that he had two beagles in his car ( back then, window down, little crime, no one batted and eye) , both brothers and whenever he left them in the car, they learnt to beep the car horn. Naughty, but highly intelligent dogs.

    We feed ours Dr-B's Raw beef. It is expensive but digestion problems and allergies disappeared! Before that I found Ivory Coat to be a good dry food.

    I make my own food for my poodle and schnauzer. A good mixture of meat and vegetables and some supplements will provide all the nutrition a dog needs.

    Meat: Beef, Chicken, some venison and some internal organs like liver and kidney
    Veggies: Carrot, pumpkin, potato
    Supplements: Glucosamin for joints

    As for treats, I use air-dry a variety of meat. Let me know if you want more info

    Also have bought Frontline equivalent from Iherb for US$17.
    Having been out of stock for the last 6 weeks the Frontline equ from Iherb is available again.

    I ordered 6 mnths worth, maybe worth stocking up.

    Thanks for the bump.

    After doing hours of research back in September when we got a dog, I too selected Orijen as the stand-out choice. We get the original, so am not too concerned about the article above. Interesting to keep track of though.

    I do wonder if dogs get 'bored' of food, and whether we should try mixing it up with another highly rated brand (obviously not switching immediately, but introducing slowly).

    Any thoughts from other dog owners here?

    I moved to https://dogsday.dog/ food which is awesome. I tried a different fresh food provider but my dog wouldn't eat the food after a few days (she would eat the cat poo if given half a chance though FFS). This stuff is amazing, easy and not as expensive as I feared when I read about it!).

    I have no affiliation with the company but do recommend it.
