Eddie looking for loving family

THE Animal Welfare League is hoping a family will visit their rehoming centre on the Gold Coast and adopt Eddie – a happy-go-lucky young dog who absolutely loves to play.

The 5 month 2 week old Basenji/Border Collie has a lot of energy and would love daily training and exercise to keep him stimulated.

He gets along well with other dogs and is very playful with them.

Eddie would prefer to go to a home with a second dog to keep him company.

Come and meet him at Animal Welfare League’s Rehoming Centre on the Gold Coast.

This chewing gum ingredient could kill your dog

Dog owners are being warned to keep sugarless gum products out of reach of their pets, after a sweetener used in some brands has been found to be deadly to dogs.

Tonia Cox’s dog, Murphy Jo, almost died after the labradoodle accidentally ingested about 20 pieces of sugarless gum. The US woman rushed the dog, who had began vomiting and was lethargic, to the vet and was shocked to learn her pet was suffering liver failure.

Luckily Murphy Jo survived, but many other dogs haven’t been so lucky.

Vets believe the sweetner Xylitol is the problem, and although it is safe for human consumption, it can cause severe low blood sugar, seizures and liver failure in dogs.

Sugar-free gum is the biggest culprit, but it is also used in some sugar-free candies, chewable vitamins, even some baked goods and peanut butter.
