    I would just hold off for a day or 2 just to be sure... Can't see that Floyd would be crook again given the good news, but giving the worming tabs isnt an exact science, 1 or 2 days late won't make a difference..

    Go Floyd !!

    Have done this with a horse. I will swear by Manuka honey for wounds. have to get from chemist but its great. Horse had gaping wound on neck, vet said it would takes months to heal, tried the manuka honey and the wound was healed and everything in 3-4 weeks... Amazing...

    Glad that Floyds little tummy problem is over! I bet he loved having his tummy rubbed to get rid of the wind!

    I'd hold off too AF, leave it for 3 days, it isn't going to hurt to delay it.

    You can get manuka honey in your health shop, it is far superior to normal honey (and much more expensive!). I keep mine in the fridge, I've seen the effects it can have, I had a foster horse who cut his leg on something, slathered manuka honey on it (after flushing it out), bandaged it lightly and within 3 days it had healed over beautifully.

    It's good for when we get sore throats, same principle applies to dogs!

    Everyone should keep a little jar at home - a little goes a long way!

    Just watch he doesn't "bung it on" when he wants some extra attention!
    My GSD I used to have would pretend he had a sore paw and so did my old cat, just to get extra attention!

    manuka honey is also available in the health section in Coles.

    If you have pups and they seem a bit slow at feeding off their mum or off colour a little bit on your fingertip, into their mouth & a smear on the teat has them pick up nicely and suck well. You can give it to them every few hours without harm.
