Emergency Dachshund Care Form

Dachshund Rescue has produced a useful Emergency Care Form (PDF) that you can leave somewhere prominently in your home in the event of an unexpected emergency to safeguard your Dachshund(s).

The Kennel Club has put together top tips to help you care for your dog during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic in the UK.

Helen Geeson's presentation on the genetics of Dachshund coat and colour.
Southwold Sausage Walk Facebook Group held a fundraising event for the NHS. The virtual tea party took place from 25 - 27 April with nearly £1000 raised to provide face masks. The event also made it into the East Anglian Daily Times.

Well done to Laura Baggot and everyone who supported this.

What to know about your dog's organs

There's a Guest Blog Post and a great infographic on our health website this month from Leo Wilson from CyberPet.


Like humans, dogs can suffer from a variety of health problems ranging from intestinal parasites, skin disease and ear infections, eye problems, digestive upset, and dental disease. Every organ in your dog’s body works to keep them healthy and happy. Knowing a little bit about your dog’s organs and how they function can help you spot those problems. Read the article here.
