How to Brush Your Dog's Teeth by Dr. Sarah

While many people like the smell of puppy breath, the same can’t be said for “Dog breath”. It’s almost universally considered as eye-stingingly unpleasant. This phrase has even been used as a play-ground insult! While it’s a joke to some, when you look at the science behind foul panting, it’s clear that bad breath is anything but funny. More...
Dealing with Grief

Losing a companion animal is devastating. And yet, many pet parents don’t receive the kind of emotional support they might expect if they had lost a human family member. Failing to show such a depth of compassion is common for those who have never shared a special bond with a companion animal. These people might say to themselves, “What’s the big deal … it was just a pet” What they don’t understand is a very simple truth … losing a companion animal is losing a member of your family.

Which Flint River Ranch food for Acid Reflux is best???

Flint River Ranch Order Here
Q 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.

A Feed the FRR LMR 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.

Shih Tzu Before & After

Here's Snickers.... He comes in about every 6 weeks to be groomed. I give him a nice soothing shampoo bath and conditioner. I then use a longer blade on his back and scissor his legs. His face hair around his eyes and mouth gets shortened and I trim just a little off his ears to keep them even with the rest of his head.
He looks cute in this Halloween hat as he poses for his picture.

Before & After Yorkie Grooming
Here is Precious before & after her beauty bath and trim. I shampooed her in Tropiclean Papaya Plus. This is a great shampoo that pampers your pet in a rich luxurious lather. Papaya and kiwi replenish the natural moisture balance of the skin and coat. Rich botanical conditioners create a healthy sheen while preventing dry skin and tangled hair. Routine bathing leaves the skin and coat soft, shiny, and looking great as you can see in this after picture. I trim the hair on the ears, shorten her body hair with a 3 3/4 blade and scissor her legs and skirt.

10 Week old Yorkshire Puppy

This is thee most cutest puppy I have seen in a long time. Pippin was my favorite cutest puppy, but this one is so adorable. She is 10 weeks old and came into the grooming parlor with her new mommy to pick up big sister. I couldn't resist to take a picture. Here is big sister Precious. She is loving her little sister and can't wait to play when they get home.

NuVet Plus Testimony

I have said it before and I'll say it again. If you want to help your dog stay healthy or you are trying to correct an already present illness or disease. NuVet Plus will and can help.Check out Bandit, his loving owner contacted me ask if she can try a sample of NuVet because she had noticed a rash on his foot. She also told me that Bandit was a picky eater and may not eat the NuVet wafer. I was happy to send one wafer off to her as a taste test to see if Bandit would go for it. This is what she said.

"Hey, Susan,
He gobbles it right up and I have noticed the rash on his foot receding very quickly. It usually takes forever to get rid of it.
Thanks for checking. Odd he would so readily eat something, he’s so picky but it’s really no problem. I used the number you gave me but when I ordered the tabs they emailed me several times asking where the number came from. Finally I got them. I ordered the small size because I was worried he would spit them out but he loves them!! He’s a very happy puppy, that’s for sure. He will need a new bottle. Also he’s not shaking his head anymore either. The ears quieted down as well.

Hope you are doing well, and thank you.

Katie Furman

Bandit says “Thank You”

OK, how cool is that? The NuVet did what it said it would do. Bandit also loves them and that's just an added plus. Did you note that she used a number to order them???? Yes, a referral number is necessary to obtain NuVet Plus. So go ahead, use mine... It's 42299 and if you can call it in at 1-800-474-7044 and mention you want to save even more money by using Auto-Ship you will receive a 15% discount on each bottle.

Matted Dog Before & After

Here is a cutie dog that came in with a mat problem.
I didn't want to shave him right down and I was very glad I didn't have too. I bathed him in 'Why B Itch' shampoo and used 'Quicker Slicker' spray when I dried him. The result was great. I used a 4F blade to leave some length and scissored his legs, head and tail. He was so happy to be mat free. Now he is looking very festive in his witch hat. BOO!!

October is American Humane's Adopt-A-Dog Month

You can save the day for a homeless dog and find a faithful companion who will be at your side for all of life’s adventures by adopting a dog from your local shelter or breed-rescue group during American Humane’s Adopt-A-Dog Month in October.
Adopting a dog is a heroic feat that’s easy to perform, and animal shelters and breed-rescue groups are filled with amazing dogs: large, small, mixed breeds, even purebreds. In fact, millions of loyal, lovable dogs are surrendered to our nation’s animal welfare organizations every year because their owners simply couldn't’t take care of them anymore. Now they’re homeless and just waiting for a hero like you!
During Adopt-A-Dog Month, we encourage you to visit your local shelter or breed-rescue group and discover the many super-size benefits of having a dog: happiness, companionship, improved physical and emotional health, and devoted love. Dogs also encourage people to exercise, enhance family and social relationships, promote laughter and act as a nonjudgmental audience and sounding board.
American Humane works year-round to support animal welfare organizations, promote adoptions and enhance the bond that people share with their companion animals. If you’re ready to find your very own faithful canine companion, check out these resources to learn about the adoption process, behavior and training, and pet care.

M.D.C. Romani Clipper Vac

This year at Groom Expo in Hershey PA, the M.D.C. Romani Clipper Vac took on some of the Groomer Has It stars. In this picture you can see two of the contestants being instructed by one of the Romani girls. These vacs are great and no shop should be without one. They cut the grooming time almost in half, scissoring is reduced by 80%, they help reduce repetitive motion, improved ergonomics, leaves beautiful haircuts and best of all you have a clean hair free environment.

Australian Shepherd Mix

This handsome boy is Wrangler. He is an Australian Shepherd mix. For grooming, I gave him a good bath using my Bathing Beauty bathing system. He had some matting in his pants or rear end area and was starting to shed out a lot of coat. After the bath I use a force air dryer and got most of the matted air unmatted. This makes the finishing brush out so mush easier for both him and me. Once he was dry, I just lightly scissored his coat to make a neat appearance.
