Shih Tzu Poodle Mix Grooming

Meet Boo... He sat up pretty for this picture. Boo is a 3 year old male Shih Tzu Poodle mix. For his grooming, I just trim up his head, legs and scissor lightly under his belly and chest. I blend his ears and the top of his head to give this appearence.
He sure is a cute little guy.

Snow Poodle

Bosco loves to play in the snow. He was out just for a minute for a potty break and came in looking like someone sprinkled powdered sugar on him.

Main Ingredients and Benefits in Flint River Ranch Pet Foods

Flint River Ranch cares about your pets as much as we care about our own and that's why I feed and recommend it to all my customers.
Flint River Ranch uses quality natural ingredients to provide for your pet’s well-being by helping it to synergistically heal itself through healthy, holistic nutrition.

I will be posting one food ingredient daily to help you understand and make wise food choices for your pet.
This post is all about Meat

The mix of proteins and amino acids found in all the formulas are the basic building blocks of your pet’s body and its immune system. This also is providing a variety of healthy meat proteins in each formula, Flint River Ranch is more successful at meeting the overall nutritional needs of your pet compared to those who rely on single source proteins. Flint River Ranch uses “meat meal” which is meat ground to remove excess water for easy assimilation into the formulas “cook.” All meat is muscle and skin flesh only, with little or no bone attached from processing. The meats can be considered human-quality, similar in ranking to store-brand meats you would buy for your own family. Sound good?

Recalled Dog Treats * Peanut Butter

Jan. 27, 2009 – Carolina Prime Pet, a manufacturer and distributor of dog treats, is voluntarily recalling four of its dog treats that contain peanut butter made by Peanut Corporation of America (PCA). PCA is the focus of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration investigation into potential salmonella contamination of peanut butter and paste. What is Salmonella? It is an organism that can potentially be transferred to people handling these pet treats, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surfaces exposed to these products. Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers. Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Well animals can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian. The recalled treats are sold at various retail establishments in the U.S. and Canada. Although Carolina Prime Pet is not aware of any reported cases of illness related to these products, it has issued this voluntary recall as a precautionary measure. The recalled products include only the following types of Carolina Prime Pet treats in single unit packages with lot date codes between 081508 and 010909:

Flint River Ranch Food * Questions and Answers

Question - Which FRR dog food would be best for a dog that seems to have a problem with acid reflux? He seems to throw up occasionally also. He has been checked by two vets and there is no reason found for this happening, so I am concerned it is his dog food and would like to try the best Flint River Ranch that might best suit him.
Answer - Feed the FRR Lamb, Millet & Rice as it is formulated for easy digestion and contains probiotics to aid in digestion. Feed the dog his daily food amount over 2-3 smaller meals a day, rather than all at once. Do not feed right after stress or exercise. Wait until the dog calms down. Take the dog to the vet (she has already, but always suggest it with any issue that may be “medical”). Canned pumpkin (not pie filling, just plain pumpkin) is recommended by many holistic vets as a remedy to an upset stomach (for people too!). Yogurt with the live cultures can also help with stomach issues. Be aware of all treats or bones given to the dog, as that might be a source of digestive issues for the pet. Feed the LMR biscuits as well, as they match the formulation of the food.

Red Toy Poodle

Here is Rusty, an appropriate name for this little red toy poodle. He was very hairy before I started with him. After trimming him with a 3 3/4 Andis blade and scissoring his legs, tail and top knot, Rusty looks more like a poodle. I am sorry that I didn't get a before picture, wow! what a transformation. His mom likes him longer, so I left the ears long which gives him a classy appearance. Rusty's mom by the way is my own Mom.

Look how great Rusty looks on the Internet Mom!!!

Love, your groomer

Flint River Ranch Testimonials Pet Food

Just a few of the testimonials from happy customers on Flint River Ranch

I have five toy breed dogs, finicky eaters. Never have I seen them eat any dry food like they eat your food. They actually growl at each other over the broken chunks. I don't know what you are doing but keep it up. My guys have been eating flint river for around 2 months and are so bright, and energetic, clear eyed, minimum poop!!!!, I can't say enough.
Dorothy H.

We have an older lab that was having problems with her coat and skin. Also, she was losing weight. The vet said it could be the corn filler in the supermarket dog food we were giving her.
After one month on Flint River, Daisy has now gained weight and her coat is beautiful! Skin problems have disappeared so she is comfortable. The vet said: "This can't be the same dog!"
When we changed to your product, I thought Daisy might reject the new food, but she gobbled it up! Thanks!
Daisy’s Mom

"We have always left the bag of dog food where our 14 year-old dog could reach it. When I introduced Flint River Ranch and put the food bag in the same room as always, he chewed a hole in the side of the bag to get to it! He has never done that with any other food. I put the food into a plastic bin, but before I could put the cover on it, he had his head in it, and I could hardly pull him away. Thankyou!"
Susan in Minnesota

Thank you so much. You are wonderful. We are so happy to have found Flint River Ranch. Our dogs love the food and the dogs with allergies are much improved.
Just as an FYI, last year two of our dogs were diagnosed with cancer. As a
nurse, I decided to do some investigation, and found that just like humans; dogs suffer from food related disease such as food. After quite a bit of research, I settled on Flint River Ranch as being our best option. We are thrilled with the product and service. We have told many dog and cat owners about FRR and will continue to do so. Again, thank you for everything.
Sherri S.

We have 2 kittens named Callie and Abby, we have them eating Flint River cat food. They have eaten the food like crazy for years. They love it & have no health problems; their coats shine & are soft. Since they have been on Flint River cat food they have never had to have their teeth cleaned, Our cats have never been sick in the eight years we have had them. We thank Fflint River for our cats health and well being mainly due to the wonderful flint river cat food products we feed our cats. Many thanks!

Cocker Spaniel Mix * Short Hair Groom *

My name is Bailey.

Little Bailey is a Cocker Spaniel mix breed. He comes in every 8 weeks or so for a groom. I give him a short clip all over. Since he is an older dog, this is easier on him then the common Cocker style clip that leaves the legs full.
He eats Life's Abundance dog food that has enhanced his energy level and has helped his skin to become less flaky.

Dog 'Tail' Humor

Beware Of The Dog

Upon entering a small country store, a stranger noticed a sign saying DANGER! BEWARE OF DOG! posted on the glass door. Inside a harmless old hound dog was asleep on the floor besides the cash register.
He asked the store manager, "Is that the dog folks are supposed to beware of?" "Yep, that's him," he replied.
The amused stranger inquired, "That certainly doesn't look like a dangerous dog to me. Why in the world would you post that sign?"
The owner responded, "Because, before I posted that sign, people kept tripping over him."

Pet Food Business for Extra Income

I have a lot of pet professionals read my blog and I appreciate that very much. This is my way of letting you or anyone reading my blog know that there are some great opportunities in the pet food business and here's how.............
Need Extra Income?
Become a Distributor of Flint River Ranch Super Premium Cat and Dog Food!
Pet Food is a multi-billion dollar industry. Why not claim some of that income for yourself while providing a superior product that literally sells itself?
Q: Who are Flint Ranch Distributors? A: Veterinarians, Professional Dog Breeders, Pet Groomers - like me, Animal Care Professionals, Anyone wanting extra income (who doesn't?)
I have found an easy way to make money and I want to share it with you. Becoming a Flint River Ranch distributor is easy; and since there is no buy-in, you have nothing to lose. Flint River Ranch Super Premium Health Food for Pets is a superior product that is easy to sell because pets love it. It sells itself! really!!
The great thing of being a Flint River Ranch distributor is that you don't have to stock product (it is all sent from the Flint River Ranch warehouse), you don't have to deal with money (Flint River Ranch does that but you will, of course, have to cash your monthly commission check), and people buy it again and again. You are selling a superior product! With just a little work (getting the word out, providing samples) you can build a profitable business in your spare time. As your sponsor, I will walk you through the business and give you ideas for finding customers and building your customer base. You will not be alone!
SPECIAL NOTE TO ANIMAL CARE PROVIDERS: You are a very special group of professionals providing your own intimate love, care and skills for family pets. Because you truly enjoy what you do, you work long hard hours providing hands-on service.
You know that your repeat business depends upon the special care and interest you have in the welfare of your customer's pet. Your continued business depends solely on the value-added service and customer satisfaction. As with most service-type businesses, when you decide to retire or to sell your business, you lose your income stream. For this reason, many professionals have become distributors of Flint River Ranch Super Premium Pet Foods. This gives you the opportunity to build a strong residual income base for future financial security.
You have first hand knowledge of coat condition, food allergies and skin health. You know that dull dry hair coats, hot spots and scratching are common conditions caused by improper diet. While you can improve appearance and maintain the pet's coat and skin by cleaning and conditioning, you realize the condition of the coat and skin is a direct reflection of what the animal eats. Flint River Premium Pet Foods are made with the highest quality chicken and grains available. Our food is baked, not cooked, in order to preserve more natural vitamins and minerals. There are no chemical preservatives added to Flint River Pet Foods that would interfere with the pet's immune system. Flint River Premium Pet Foods are by far the finest food available for today's dog and cat.
By taking a few minutes to explain the value of proper feeding and provide samples of Flint River Ranch products, you are able to build a repeat business from pet owners who truly love their pets. You have the ideal opportunity to network and build your business by providing a service with person to person contact. This one of the best ways to build a business. The real benefit is a happy, healthy pet and a satisfied pet owner.
I would encourage you to become a distributor of Flint River Premium Pet Foods. It is a great way to build residual income and at the same time provide a service to your customer and their pet.

Arthritis In Dogs

As dogs age they can develop arthritis. So what can be done to treat arthritis in dogs without the pain medication you get from the vet's that can contain harmful steroid?

It is very common for large dogs to develop arthritis, but even small dogs can also develop arthritis in their bones and joints. There is no instant cure for arthritis, but there is a supplement available! It's called
NuJoint Plus. I give them to my own dogs and recommend them to all my customers. Given daily will strengthen bones and joints which makes them more comfortable and improve their lives.
Dogs can suffer from many different types of arthritis and finding out exactly which type your dog has can be very time consuming, not to mention Expensive.

There is a list of some the different types of arthritis that can be helped with NuJoint Plus

  • Degenerative Joint Disease or Osteoarthritis is a chronic, slowly progressing condition that is caused by the breakdown and destruction of your pet's cartilage. The bony structures begin to rub against one another causing pain and discomfort, just like in people.

  • Hip Dysplasia is characterized by a malformed "ball and joint" socket in your pet. Chronic inflammation occurs; calcium deposits build-up; the muscles become painful; and tissue surrounding the area begin to break down.

  • Kneecap (dislocation) is usually caused by poorly formed leg bones that allows the kneecap to move or "pop" out of its normal position. This is sometimes an inherited condition or results from poor breeding.

  • Degenerative Joint Disease involves some kind of a breakdown or destruction in portions of the joint, usually cartilage.

  • Hypertrophic arthritis is excessive bone growth with or without "spurs" on the joints. If this condition is present, the pet is typically experiencing a tremendous amount of pain.

  • Knee (stifle) arthritis involves torn ligaments which cause instability in the joint. Dislocation of the knee joint leads to inflammation is common problem from stress and strain.

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis in pets is similar to rheumatoid arthritis in humans. This type of arthritis results when the body attacks itself or an infectious agent and becomes confused and attacks one or more joints in your pet's body. The cause of this type of arthritis is generally unknown.

  • Shoulder Degeneration in dogs is a disease that has many causes. Infection or injury to this joint can be contributing factors for the wearing down of the shoulder. This type of arthritis will most often affect the gait of the animal resulting in slow movement.
If you have a dog that is struggling its mobility or a dog that if suffering from joint pain, try NuJoint supplements, these can be a great benefit to your pet.
No matter what type of arthritis your dog may be suffering from
NuJoint Plus can help.

So what exactly is NuJoint Plus? NuJoint Plus™ is a natural anti-inflammatory hip and joint therapy, formulated with the finest pharmaceutical, human grade ingredients.Major considerations in formulating NuJoint Plus™ were the pharmaceutical grade quality of ingredients and their healing values, as well as the bio digestibility and utilization into the cellular framework. NuJoint Plus™ has been formulated by leading Veterinarians and Scientist to contain precise percentages of Glucosamine, Chondroitin, Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) and Vitamin C which will help to quickly and effectively reverse and heal the devastating effects of osteoarthritis.
NuVet Labs™ has designed a cutting edge formula that we believe will help increase your pets longevity and quality of life. Our scientists performed extensive research and experiments with the ingredients in NuJoint Plus™, finding the most powerful synergistic defense against the harm caused by osteoarthritis.

How can you buy NuJoint Plus? Only through pet professionals like me. You need an order code in order to buy NuVet Plus and NuJoint Plus. My order code is 42299 and by using this you can get NuVet Products at pet professionals pricing. So be my quest.

How much food to feed my dog?

Thinking about how much to feed your new puppy or dog?
I can tell you about Flint River Ranch and their feeding guidelines.
If you are thinking about changing to Flint River Ranch food because you have heard how good it is but you are afraid to because your dog may not like it, trust me, he will. One thing to remember however, that food changes can upset a pet's digestive system. You need to make the change over gradually for 5-7 days by mixing the Flint River Ranch food with the brand you are feeding now. Start with a mixture of 10% - 15% Flint River Ranch food, then increase the percentage of Flint River Ranch food by 10% - 15% each day until the transition is complete. Without the gradual transition from the other brand to the much richer/healthier Flint River Ranch food, pets may get upset stomachs and diarrhea. Feed your adult dog twice a day. Have plenty of fresh water available at all times. Feed an amount that will maintain your dog's weight. Following are suggested daily feeding amounts however, keep in mind your dogs breed, age and activity level determines the amount you should actually feed. For puppies, rule is, have food down and allow him to graze on it, can be picked up in the evening for house breaking.

Weight of Dog - Cups of Food

Because Flint River Ranch dog food products are high-density, you feed 20-25% less than other foods, thus saving you money. Each serving delivers the maximum nutrition without fillers, so you'll notice less stool volume and cleanup and that's great news. Quantities will vary based on your climate, breed of your dog and activity level he or she has. You want to feed an amount that will maintain their ideal weight.
Keep in mind, when you feed a diet that is low in protein your dog will eat more than they should in order to satisfy their hunger. Improper feeding is the greatest cause of obesity.

Thank Goodness for Canine Soft Claws

Soft Claws are vinyl nail caps that glue on to your dogs nails.
Today while I was trimming Bosco's toe nails, he all of a sudden pushed his leg forward just as I was clipping his front nail. I accidentally cut off to much causing the nail to bleed. In most cases, this is an easy fix, blotting off the blood with a cotton ball then applying Kwik Stop Styptic Powder, but this was a dozy. Blood just dripped out like a leaky faucet and I felt so bad. "Poor Bosco" I kept saying as I tried to get it to stop, but it was not working. I thought about the Soft Claws, what if I put some Kwik Stop inside a nail cap and slipped it over his nail. It worked!!! I was so happy and he was a real trooper about the whole thing. The nail sealed itself and Bosco never bothered with it at all. So if you experience 'a cut to short nail' try Soft Claws. They can be purchased at PetEdge.

News Articles About Pet Food Makers

There have been so many news articles lately about pet food makers hiding the chemical preservative 'ethoxiquin' in their foods. This is due to the fact that much of the fish used in pet foods comes already pre-preserved with this chemical. So what about Life's Abundance? Many people ask "Does your food contain ethoxiquin since fish meal is an ingredient?
To find the answer to this and to learn about other pet food ingredients in Life's Abundance, listen to this recorded chat with Dr. Jane Bicks, the formulator of Life's Abundance and other HeathlyPetNet products. Simply click on the link below and then choose any ingredient name you would like to hear about.

Treating a Dog's Ear Infection using a Home Remedy

Does your dog's ears smell?
Treating your dog's ear infection using a home remedy method can be a good starting place to ease the discomfort and that nasty smell. A chronic buildup of wax and debris in the ears, combined with incessant head shaking, scratching and other signs of discomfort, may be the result of a food allergy. Eating grains is one of the most common contributors to long term ear infections. Switching over to an All-natural pet food like Flint River Ranch or Life's Abundance is the first thing you should do. Giving your pet a supplement such as NuVet Plus will also do the trick, and it's a lot less expensive than going off to the vet's office every time your dog has icky ears.A good home remedy is to make a topical solution of apple cider vinegar and equal part of warm water. Using a cotton ball, gently wipe the ears clean. This solution will help to acidify the ear, inhibiting bacterial growth. Never pour anything into your pet's ears; do not push the cotton in too far and never use a Q-tip or other object that can cause severe long term damage to the delicate, sensitive ear canal, this is best done by a professional.Changing your dog's diet can help to keep the ears healthy long term and a good cleaning every month may be all that is required to keep the ears smelling and feeling terrific.
