One of the saddest parts about being a dog owner is watching them suffer from arthritis. Whether the result of a medical condition (like hip dysplasia) that makes them prone to arthritis, the breed, an old injury, or just old age, arthritis can strike a dog at any age. If you notice your dog walking stiffly, having trouble getting up from a sitting or lying down position, or hesitance jumping on the bed, there’s a good chance your dog is suffering from arthritis.
If you have a cat or a dog, an almost certain issue you’ll have to deal with at some point is diarrhea. Whether it’s as simple as a result of eating something they shouldn’t, the result of medication use, or a change in food that suddenly creates havoc in the bathroom department, it’s a good idea to be ready to act when it happens. Luckily, there are three inexpensive and easy diarrhea treatments for cats and dogs that should help resolve the issue quickly.
Colloidal silver is one of those things you may have heard of, but don’t really know what it is or its capabilities. I used to be one of those people. I can’t even remember now what specific issue I was dealing with, if any, when I stumbled across colloidal silver, but even in the limited capacity I’ve used it for, I’m glad that I did. And while it may seem expensive, I like to look at it in terms of it saving me a vet visit and prescription meds or a late night/weekend shopping trip to track down a treatment I need. I can assure you, as many times as it has suddenly come in handy, how many things it can cure, and given how well it works, I will not be without it. You shouldn’t either. Read more
Even though the commercials would make it seem like having a smelly house is a common thing, it’s not. And I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Will is in the service industry. In the course of a day, he’s in and out of usually 3-5 houses. Because of all the commercials on TV talking about smelly odors, dog smell infused couches and stinky litter boxes, I wanted to know if it really is the epidemic the companies pushing all those sprays and plugins would have you believe.
Last year, when my dog Roxie was diagnosed with cancer, I immediately came home and spent hours and hours researching things that would help get her better. A lot of the supplements I read about that were recommended, I’d never heard of. There was one that caught my attention though, because of how it is administered in dire cases and what ailments it can help with in both cats and dogs. It was vitamin C. I never realized how many things vitamin C was good for treating in cats and dogs until I researched further.
Over the years, I have spent a lot of money on dog beds. Indoor dog beds, outdoor dog beds, elevated dog beds, orthopedic dog beds, you name it, I’ve owned at least one of them. After nearly 20 years of buying many, many different dog beds, I can honestly say that there is only one that I can wholeheartedly recommend.
You know those items that you finally buy and then kick yourself that it took you so long to finally do it because they just work so well and make your life so much easier? If you have carpet, rugs, upholstery, or a car, you might want to consider getting your own carpet cleaning machine. Luckily for you, I’ve done the homework to find the most highly rated carpet cleaners that fit both small and larger budgets.
Over the years, I’ve purchased several books on cat and dog care. Some have been more helpful than others in certain situations, and although I have not always entirely agreed with the information provided, I have found most of them to be very helpful and insightful. As someone who has no access to local holistic vets, and prefers to treat my pets as naturally as possible, I wanted to share my thoughts on these books with others who also prefer to go the natural route whenever possible and are interested in starting or adding to their resource collection.
Abby, my labrador, has had environmental allergies to some extent, since she was around two years old, when she developed her first hot spot on her chest. Yesterday, she turned nine. Luckily, for most of those years, she’d been doing well on these supplements http://amzn.to/2oabvd7 and this shampoo http://amzn.to/2oQ9PEc. Every year, around June, she’d go on the supplements and get her medicated baths about once a month until August or September, when the offending allergen had subsided. We were then good until the next summer. That was our schedule.
