Thanks for putting this on Jen - much appreciated.


I now know (and I think I have said before somewhere on here) how Honey contracted her Pancreatitis ............ filthy water bowls! I thought I could trust the lady who looked after mine when we went on hols but it dawned on me when she had them for their last weekend ever at her home. My ex and I had a weekend away (cant remember where now) .... and when I got back to collect my gang, she wasn't there but her daughter was and when I bent to pick up the water bowl (a large one) I noticed black silt in the bottom. I rinsed it in their sink and it was thick with slime and dirt. I was appalled and the bowl must have been the same when Honey was there when she contracted Pancreatitis! That was when I flew back if some will remember ..... I almost lost Honey, the vet said it was a very close call! So yes, this is a very good read and needs to be taken on board. I wash their bowls out all the time x
