    I just joined the health pet club and had its first injections nobivac l4 and nobivac DHP and the next injections are on the 30th March. The vet said it was a really healthy puppy so am really happy :) and in the week I've had OREO I've stopped him from nipping at hands and feet by just giving him a time out every time he nipped.

    I can't find the exact formula in another brand, (there will be one as MiPet is just a badged vet brand). I suggest that you take the packet into Pets at Home and ask them what is the nearest to it. They are usually very helpful.

    Hind dew claws are not common these days - except in one or two continental mountain breeds where double dew claws are a feature of the breed. They usually have no bony attachment, and because of the chance of them catching, they are usually snipped off at three or four days old. Once past this time they have to be done under anaesthetic by a vet. The most convenient time for this is usually when the dog is being neutered.
    A cat harness will be OK to get used to in the house, but will not be safe to use outdoors.

    You could mention it to the vet, but personally I wouldn't bother having an anaesthetic just to remove it now. It can wait until he needs to have an anaesthetic for another purpose, and then do the two together.
