UKC Nosework Kit

UKC Nosework Kit

The new UKC sport of Nosework has a few slight differences from the original sport. One of those differences is the addition of 2 extra scents which is why Leerburg created a separate kit solely for the UKC events.

Leerburg Q&A
Ask your training question

Question: My puppy is having his ears cropped and the vet prescribes Rimadyl for post surgical pain. Do you have a suggestion for pain medication instead of Rimadyl?

Two weeks from now, my 6 week old Dobe, is scheduled for ear cropping. The Doctor who will perform the surgery, is well known for his skill, but following the procedure, they plan to send us home with Rimadyl, for pain control.

I know that you do not approve of Rimadyl, so do you have an alternative, or other advice for pain control; if necessary at all!

Thank you in advance

Cindy's Response:


I use Traumeel for my own dogs (and even take it myself). There are no known drug interactions and it’s safe to give.

I grind up a tablet in a spoon and just dump the powder in my dog’s mouth, three times a day. 

I adopted an old dog and she had to have a number of teeth taken out.  She was in a lot of pain and I refused the meds from the vet and used Traumeel 3x daily for about 4 days. 

I hope this helps.

On Leerburg's Padded Service Vest

Received this vest yesterday for my German Shepherd and we are very pleased! Exactly as ordered - nicely padded, durable construction, and the red color looks great! The large size fits her great. I also had a second patch put on the side, in addition to the center back, is it is placed perfectly. I couldn't be happier!
