    Any chemist or health store should stock it. I use the Brauer brand & get the tablets. Anything open around your area now ? It's improtant to get the tabs into Batty as quickly as poss to start to act on the bruising & muscle damage ASAP. Was a bloody Godsend when I fell & cracked my rib last week. See if you can get some tonight please before Batty starts to stiffen up & feel hurt & uncomfortable. Send "what's his name" while you're tending to Batty.

    No need to apologise, I've asked the same thing for Arnica

    I get RR from the health food shop, it's great, I take it when I'm anxious for any reason myself so it's always in the house.

His neck has only 4 tiny red marks on it - most likely from Levi's canines - and while it's a bit sensitive, he has no objection to me looking at it.

    He's never gone near the retaining wall when Levi hasn't been there, it's not until Levi gets there and starts whining and barking that Batty goes up there.
    So with the red marks, is the skin broken? If so you need to make sure the area is clean, use an antiseptic that is okay for dogs.

    No, skins not broken at all. It's just red dots on his skin, almost looks like mozzie bites, but not raised IYKWIM.

    I agree with Greys about the dog poo. Didn't work with Spirit though when she dug holes & I put it in to stop her making the hole bigger. Little minx dug it up & had a good old . Disgusting dog. What did work with her was camphor rub & lots of people use it with great success. Spirit was just about ring barking the trees out back, so I smeared the trucks & hey presto, stopped chewing immediately.

    Just as a temporary, do it tonight kinda thing, in that 3rd piccy where you've got those temp boards, flip them back up so the side the dog will sniff is facing you. Get some Camphor rub. Vicks is too expensive, but the home brand stuff is just as effective. Smear it all over the boards & on the bottom of the existing fence. You might want to get a couple of rocks, smear them as well & have them backed up against the temp wood. Most dog get a whiff of that camphor up their noses & in their eyes & they back right off. It's petroleum based, so is water proof. Batty might give the area a big miss if they get a whiff, so that's one half of the problem solved with Batty not wanting to go near that area. If the dog on the other side is deterred as well .... peace a last. A cheap temporary possible solution until you can get those railway sleepers.

    Ok, Batty has had just half an Arnica tablet. I spoke to the pharmacist and explained what was going on - turns out he uses it for his dogs too! So I gave him the weight and he told me one tablet should be fine, but to give him half, wait an hour then give him the other half.

    Thank you so much to everyone!

    If you've got a Chemist Warehouse where you are, they are the cheapest place to get them, but any chemist or health shop will stock them.

    Good O !!! Glad you got them. I remember once buying them to stock up & the pharmacist asked me why so many packets. When I said they were for my dogs, she said "Great idea !! I hadn't thought of that. I'll buy some myself for my dogs." One tab at a time sounds fine for Batty's size & weight. Give Batty a dose am & pm for the next 2 to 3 days just to make sure all the bruising & muscle soreness is dealt with please. You can't over dose, so just go for it.

    I've mentioned this before, but worth repeating here. I give my lot a dose am & pm Saturdays & Sundays to deal with any bumps, bruises & strains they may have picked up during the week. They have a weekly massage & rarely do they groan & wince in pain like the other dogs I help out with while I'm there. Mish is well over 12 now & the old girl still has a spring in her step around the house & when we go to the park every morning. There has to be something to this Arnica that works is all I can say ....

    I will definitely do that, thank you so much I'll pop down to the vets with him tomorrow morning (they're going to be sick of me! It's a good thing the nurses love him ) and get my vet to quickly check him over too, just in case there is something I've missed.
