5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product for my young and old dogs, 21 July 2013
This review is from: Plaque Off Dog, 60 g (Misc.)
I've had dogs for over 30 years and in recent years have found this an excellent product used on two collies. One a 13 year old rescue dog with very hardened plaque and a young collie of a year who had just started to get a slight film on his teeth. For the older dog it took about 4 weeks for the plaque to soften enough so that I could gently start removing it with a brush and clean finger and it saved the plaque from cutting into her gums and causing serious damage. She lived until she was 15, using this product every day for the last 18 months of her life with absolutely no adverse effects. She died from a cancer, developed well before she was put on Plaque Off and her final years were no doubt improved by this product as disease of the mouth poisons the whole system and fighting a cancer left little for her immune system to fight anything else.
I only wish this product had been available many years ago to help two of my other old dogs whose had old teeth causing problems.
The manufacturers do give a cautionary warning about dogs with thyroid problems when this product should not be used. If no thyroid problem exists then I consider it an excellent product.


Thrive Dog Treats Kind & Gentle
Thrive Dog Treats Kind & Gentle
Offered by Equestrian Performance
Price: £38.58

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent says dog, 14 Mar 2013
These along with the Thrive kind and gentle liver treats are the best treats ever judging by my dog's reaction. Each treat is small but can still be cut in half easily with your thumbnail when really tiny treats are needed for training purposes. I have a Border Collie but giving these tiny treats is the best bribe and reward I have ever used. The food content is 100% air-dried meat but the treats are soft and not at all hard. It is an amazing product and the best treat I have ever come across.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful composition, played beautifully., 24 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Grieg: Peer Gynt Suites (Audio CD)
I opened this up and played it on a really basic CD player. Even this piece of equipment could not take away the outstanding orchestral work under Herbert von Karajan and the Berlin Philharmonic which has been excellently remastered. Most people are familiar with the music itself which is gentle and delightful and pure joy.

5.0 out of 5 stars The great depression through the eyes of a child., 22 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Town That Died! (Paperback)
This is a beautifully written book about the depression in what once was, one the great industrial towns of South Wales.
The true-based story is told through the eyes of a child, initially, not fully understanding what is happening when the thriving town is crippled through lack of work. It is full of fun, sadness and poignancy.
It is an enlightening and easy to read historical novel of the hard-life, which not so long ago, was right here in this country.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, 30 tracks and synopsis, 14 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you like Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons this must be the ultimate CD. There are 30 tracks on 2 discs in the order of the actual recordings, starting off with Sherry in 1962 up to Grease in 1978. The synopsis gives a timeline stating what later famous artists were doing at the time Frankie Valli started out. This CD package must be the best there is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great music, great value, 29 Sep 2011
I bought this about a year ago and put it in the cupboard thinking I shouldn't have spent the money as I wasn't particularly a country fan. I'm now converted. The music is excellent, the sound is crystal clear on what are the original recordings and everything is listed in an easy listing on the reverse of the box. This is an excellent collection and being original recordings the country music is not so twangy as later country music.

If you are just tipping your toe in the water with country you'll want to be fully submerged after hearing this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good production, Carreras superb, 4 Sep 2010
Jose Carreras sings and acts superbly as well as still being young and incredibly handsome. He is a very credible Rodolfo. Any woman would melt but when he gets going with his rendition of Che gelida manina, Mimi just doesn't stand a chance; his delivery of this is outstanding and more tender than I have ever heard. Teresa Stratas plays a convincing, frail sufferer of TB and sings very well. Renata Scotto is a little shrill but is lively, acts well and is colorful and strong in her role. James Morris has great presence. The production is lavish the orchestra great. I think this is a performance that you will carry in your mind for ever and a DVD you will replay many times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful production, 3 May 2010
This is an excellent production especially with Jose carreras and Samuel Ramey in excellent form. Both artists are perfect for their roles in vocal quality, visual appearance and acting. Buy this for the performances of both these artists if for nothing else and your money will be well spent

5.0 out of 5 stars Looks good & cleans easily, 6 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my second purchase of these mats having had the others for about 5 years. These mats are exactly the same as my previous purchase except for a different colour. The fact I've searched them out on the internet (the manufacturer is no longer supplying to the previous retailer) shows how pleased I've been with them over the 5 years and quite honestly I don't ever want anything else.
They look really smart on the carpet in the entrance-hallway, in fact they look just like carpet, they're very hard-wearing, vacuum easily and wash well.
After about 5 years of a lot of feet-wiping they had naturally faded as I've a glass door with a lot of light coming through and understandably flattened a little as they had been heavily used so hence my replacements. Excellent value and will buy again.
