Standard Poodle Australian Shepard mix

This is Chloe, she is a Standard Poodle Australian Shepard mix. When she came in for her groom, she had very long curly hair. Her owner likes to have all her hair clipped down short especially in the winter months when there is snow on the ground. Today, we got 8 inches of snow so Chloe is all set to run and play and not get covered in snowballs.
For her groom....
I used a #4 blade with my Hanvey Taxi Vac to remove the much of her coat. I used the same blade on her legs and scissored any stray hair that needed to be neatened. For her head, I use a 33/4 blade to shorten her hair on top of her head and used a 10 blade on her face. She was given a WhyB Itch shampoo and a coat conditioner.
When she was all done, I put some Happy New Year bows in her hair, a spritz on Gingerbread cologne and she is ready to party.
Now until February - register at Spotts Grooming and you may win a Red Dingo personalized pet tag. Winner will be notified by email.

How to Brush Your Dog's Teeth Video

Pet Talk with Dr. Sarah … How to Brush Your Dog’s Teeth Video
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. If dental health is a priority for you, watch this how-to video about dental care with staff veterinarian, Dr. Sarah, so you can help your pet fight dental disease and bad breath.

Red Pomeranian

This is a very lovable red Pomeranian. A Pom should be groomed every 4 weeks, as their hair tends to mat up a bit. They are heavy shedders and need to be brushed daily if possible.

How much to feed a dog a premium food?

Do you think it costs a lot more money to feed a good quality pet food? Now you can with Life's Abundance pet foods. LA foods only come in one variety - The Best we can make. While we understand that most people want to watch their budgets and not spend more than is necessary, we also understand that you get what you pay for. Most people never consider that buying cheaper foods can lead to more expenses down the road with regard to vet costs, nutritionally related ailments, and shortened life spans. They may also not realize that you could easily feed twice as much of a cheaper food in an attempt to equal the nutrition found in a food like Life's Abundance.
If we examine the actual cost of feeding Life's Abundance, we would be amazed to realize how inexpensive it is and why it makes no sense to consider an inferior product.

The average cost of feeding Life's Abundance
12lb cat = .29 cents per day
50lb dog = .90 cents per day
We could not expect to feed any single member of our family for such a small price without sacrificing good health. Should we expect any different results when it comes to our pets?
Our philosophy is simple, people who love their pets will naturally want to feed them what is best, not what is cheapest. is the place to order your pet Life's Abundance

Petco Pet Food

Written by John Albrecht

The shipment and warehousing of pet foods is something most pet food buyers never take into consideration. Most people are only concerned with a pretty bag and a bargain price. But buyer beware! What you don't know can hurt you.
Petco recently found it's Joliet warehouse being raided by the Feds as a result
of "unsanitary conditions" as described in a warrant issued by the United States District Court in Chicago. U.S. Marshals seized all FDA-regulated animal food susceptible to rodent and pest contamination. The seized products violate the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act because it was alleged in a case filed by the United States Attorney that they were being held under unsanitary conditions. (The Act uses the term "insanitary" to describe such conditions.
The distribution center in Joliet, Ill., provides pet food products and supplies to PETCO retail stores in 16 states including Alabama, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, and Wisconsin.
You can view the official release from the FDA here

We must also be aware of the other potential problems associated with the archaic mass distribution process of pet foods.
  • Powerful chemical preservatives used to create a two year shelf life
  • Non climate controlled storage containers (semi trucks) used for extended periods of time
  • Mass production of product to ensure availability
    Remember, there is more to choosing a quality pet food than what you may read on a "pretty" label.

Recalled cat food sickens 21 cats - Diamond Pet Foods

Select bags of Premium Edge could lead to gastrointestinal problems.

And this is why I tell people to go with a food that has Never Had A Recall.

Urinary Tract Problems in Cats

Many cat owner know, urinary tract problems are a common problem. The reason being is that cats don’t have a strong instinctual drive to drink water. By not taking in enough fluids can result in a scenario where minerals pile-up in the kidneys and bladder, setting the stage for the formation of stones or crystals.
Listed are common problems that you should be on the lookout for. Check out these warning signs:Does your cat:.............
• Frequent urination

• Urination in places other than the litter box

• If she strains to urinate

• If you see any hint of blood in her urine

Even now, there’s evidence to suggest that stress can be one of the primary causes of Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease (FLUTD).

Stress can let loose a flood of hormones that could cause the muscles of the lower urinary tract to constrict. Changes in your routine, a new companion animal in the home, changes in weather and even a lack of attention can increase your cat’s stress level. You can see how important it is to be in-tune with your cat’s emotional state, and take steps to decrease or eliminate stress in her life.
Additionally, you might consider providing water for your cat using a continuous fountain. The constant motion of the water attracts the attention of cats, hopefully encouraging them to drink more. And, of course, providing fluid-rich canned foods like Instinctive Choice can help boost overall fluid intake, too.
If you take steps now, you might be able to prevent your cat from developing urinary health issues, helping him or her to live a healthier, and much more comfortable life.
