Rehoming a Dog – Advice

What a shame that they didn’t ask the first vet to check if the dog was microchipped rather than wait until they were about to return to the UK. It’s a bit late now but for anyone else thinking of adopting an animal it has been law here since 2003 to have it microchipped and registered in your name. The website is here: http://www.raia.es/



Have you lost a cat?

I have been feeding a Beautiful young Siamese cat, cream and brown for the last month, I have no problem doing this, but I have dogs, so I cannot get close to it to be friends, It arrives at 6 45am in the morning and 5 45pm for its meal in the evening. Please contact Digame if it is yours, I am in the campo in Sayalonga. Regards B M



INR Tests – Advice

A few days ago someone was asking where to go to have a blood test for Warfarin levels, I have to have mine tested whilst I have extended stays  in Competa, I go to the local Consultorio with my Passport and EHIC card plus photo copies for them to keep they give me an appointment to have the same test they do in the UK and then  they adjust the levels as needed no charge.





Services – Air Conditioning. – Advice

 For Doug. It is easy to stop aircon or heating being used if doors or windows   are open

The installer should fit detectors on windows and/or doors of the relevant

rooms, like hotels do,

The session will last an hour and guaranteed to make you sweat! Why not start your new years resolution and get fit in 2016?
