Lisa in Maxi Zoo in Limerick recommended their beef scalp chews to me for the dogs. Bought one there the other day for them and it's fantastic - it lasts way, way longer than a rawhide roll or a compressed rawhide chew, which I'd usually buy. And it works out the same price or cheaper. The beef scalp is really long but I cut it in three.

ETA: You have to get over the fact that it's um, scalp.

I haven't tried them but I hear they're very popular in America. I wouldn't put them on a cat that has access to the outdoors as they'd stop the cat from protecting themselves. At least they stop some Americans from declawing cats. I don't know how anyone who claims to love their cats could possibly subject them to declawing.

You can get huge ones on zooplus - actually if you go back a few pages I uploaded a pic of them when they arrived a few weeks ago! The first one I gave Bailey only lasted 20 mins but I have him a thicker one at the weekend and he was still eating it after an hour!

Well I'v already ordered 2 packets so I hope they'll work out ok Fully indoor cats, says on the website not to use them on cats that have outdoor access for that reason. Declawing really is barbaric, how anyone can do that to an animal they seemingly care for is beyond me when there's so much info readily available about it

Tis a small world indeed. The little setter I rehomed last week came from a pic that was posted up on a rescue page. I knew the people that were looking for a setter and told them that I would keep an eye out. I sent an private fb message to the rescue page and then got a friend request on fb from a girl that I thought I vaguely knew, we had 9 mutual friends - turns out it was her brother and sister in laws setter that was getting rehomed and she's very good friends with people I grew up with in Dublin.

Thankfully declawing isn't as common anymore here in Canada. I was thinking about getting those clawcaps thingys too. Pepper is indoor only but she loves to scratch under the bed and the couch... not fun! She has a cat tree and a scratching post too but I guess destroying the couch is way more fun! She loves to go under the bed and lie on her back and claw her way around. Extremely loud and annoying at 4am!

I'l let you know how I get on with them, I reckon applying them will be fun Moving to rented accommodation soon and I'm worried about the furniture hence why I'm getting these early to get them used of them, plan on buying a big cat tree too At least you don't get your ears nibbled at 4am

Hope they get better soon sillymango, moone has been sick all evening too. She's been narky (more than usual ) with Alli and whining to sit on the sofa with me. She even went over and picked up her teddy to snuggle in beside me hopefully she'll be better in the morning.

The house is so quiet without Alli here, she went off with the vet no problem. Hopefully she won't be too bad after her operation, our cat was a little sick after hers. Moones actually going around looking for Alli

Ahh Nala for some reason decided to chew up Bruce's eye cream so had to get new one at vets. The rescue had paid for first one but seen as nala ate this one i said i'd buy it not realising it's €37! It's called optimmune. It's only tiny tube but his eyes have improved so it should last a while. Anyone have any idea's where i might find cheaper one online?

I wAs going to suggest trying on amazon but i think with anything like that you'd be safer getting it in the vets as it's genuine. Is there not a cheaper brand you could ask for? My labrador had eye problems a few weeks before he passed away and we had to get him eye drops from the vets that cost about €15, I can't remember the brand though
