Q: I have a blue Pitty who suffers from some pretty bad allergies. Her skin is a mess and her hair is so thin that it looks like she doesn't have much. I have taken her to an allergist and she has been on a bunch of different medications (anti-fungals, steroids, antibiotics, allergy shots, etc.) and nothing works or she reacts badly to them. Currently she is on a grain free diet. We have fed her raw in chicken, beef, duck, venison, and one other meat. We give her fish oil, and have tried supplements that the allergist/dermatologist recommended. All of this is so expensive. I am desperate and don't know what else to do with her.
Your dog’s behavior in your own home is a personal thing. Your dog’s behavior in public is another matter. Whether your dog is a puppy or an older dog, they need to respect the animals, humans and space they are in. I’m not talking about behavior issues—I’m not a dog trainer, but I expect and appreciate good manners.
Once again the FDA has issued a warning to not feed a raw food diet to your cat or dog. The foundation for their argument is the risk of pathogen contamination to you and your pet.
In this post, I'm letting a client share their new found respect for the healing powers of a raw diet. ~Terri
It was a pleasure chatting with you about our Montezuma! We feel indebted to PetSage for carrying Rad Cat Raw Diet cat food, the saving grace of our Montezuma!
Customer: “I was in several weeks ago for my cat who had crystals. I started him on the Chinese herbal and changed him to wet food. Now he’s peeing outside the litter box.”
Many clients aren't aware of the services we offer. Instead of listing, I thought I’d share a day that demonstrated our range.
When checking out new products, I try to find benefits, before launching into a full critique. But an advertisement for a new litter with added air fresheners-–quality name brand or not, didn’t get past my wrinkled nose!
While we got off to a chaotic start, our Holiday Treat Class for pets ended up being more of a social gathering of friends in the kitchen.
Overhearing a discussion on the obscene commercialism and the loss of the true meaning of the holiday season, I wanted to share what this season is teaching me. It started in early November when a client showed me graciousness and courage.
Miracle elixirs. Revolutionary nutrients. Superfoods. Each day new products, new miracles, new recommendations propel us into seeking a better magic bullet. As a homo-sapien, with a sizeable brain, we can choose to imbibe in one of these latest super nutrients, supplements or therapies. However, as our wards, our pets depend upon us to use that sizeable brain and to identify and qualify a newly proposed health miracle for its appropriateness and application.
