Dog Food Manufacturers Recall Dangerous Batches


The three manufacturers are Royal Canin, Hills Science Plan and Burns, but they are not alone. Numerous other manufacturers may use questionable ingredients and dubious practices. Hills has had to recall batches of food this month, that could put dogs at serious risk of vitamin D poisoning, It appears dogs have died. Read the article and tell me has anything changed from 3 years ago. It covers the recent Hill dog food recall. Full article www.doglistener.co.uk  article by Stan Rawlinson

CHRISTMAS PARTY: The Annual Christmas party was held on 13th December.  A cheque for £1700 was presented to Search Dogs Sussex. Photos

At long last, there appears to be some progress on treating this dreadful disease. The Royal Veterinary College have announced that they have discovered similarities between CRGV and a rare but serious disease in Humans. A plasma exchange treatment for Dogs has been developed, which effectively filters the affected dogs blood and removes toxic substances including that which causes CRVG. Whilst it is early days and only a third of those dogs treated survivied, it is an improvement on virtually no dogs surviving. Needles to say the cause of it is still a mystery.

We get numerous telephone calls from people wishing to train their dogs with us and when told the fees they are astonished and we usually get "That's cheap!"  . We have run Bognor Regis & District Dog Training Club for over fifty years on a non-profit making basis.   We need to cover the cost of running the club which includes the ever increasing cost of hiring the hall for two evenings a week
We are definitely NOT inferior to the other more expensive Dog training clubs in the area. All of our ten Trainers are fully qualified with the majority having been Trainers for many years and all are unpaid Volunteers.   We cater not only for the "pet" market, but also for people who wish to enter their dogs for competition or for the show ring.   Our three yearly terms are between twelve and fourteen weeks (depending on where Easter falls each Spring).   For this our fees are £25.00 per term for each dog. In addition, we charge £3.00 a year club subscription for each club member.
