    We used to have a bulmastiff which we bought as a puppy and insured him straightaway. At about a year old he was diagnosed with hip dysplasia (I think that's how it's spelled) The treatment would cost a fortune, but insurer paid for them. Though we had to pay the vet then claim money from insurer. We were only covered for 2 years for that condition, after which we were on our own.

    When doing a job at a stables the nice lady there recommended glucosamine & chondroitin tablets (available at supermarkets for cheap as chips), pretty much the same thing. Worked a treat. Must have saved us hundreds if not thousands. Can't believe the vet didn't suggest this
    I just dropped in, to see what condition my condition was in

    Forget the past, it's gone. And don't worry about the future, it doesn't exist. There is only NOW.

    My old Staffy started getting a bit stiffer and was having trouble with her rear quarter when she got to about eleven - I paid quite a bit at the vets for those tablets, then found them at Tescos for a couple of pounds. They certainly seemed to do the trick for her, she was running around with no signs of problems right up to the end.

    Mind you I have tried high dose glucosamine & chondroitin from Holland and Barrett and they made bugger all difference to me

    I bet you didn't supplement them with Pedigree Chum, that might do the trick

    Just bought myself a new toothbrush. It has 5,460 bristles in the head - and no, I haven't counted them to make sure.

    No, the brush has 5,460 bristles, each 0.1mm in diameter.



    But maybe I ought to by this: https://www.dentocare.co.uk/curaprox...rush-cellowrap, with 7,600 (x 0.08mm diameter) bristles next time?
