Shih Tzu Poodle Mix

This is Boo, he is a great little dog. Just look at those eyes.
For the grooming - I used a medium length clip-on comb on the body and scissored his legs. For his head, I trimmed out around the eyes, trimmed the ears to the same length of his face and took just a little off the top of the head.

DogToids & CatToids Breath Mints

I was asked to do a review on DogToids & CatToids. What I found out is they are flavorful Breath mints with natural flavors that dogs and cats can't resist. Each little bone and fish shaped treat contains a tasty flavor combination of beef, liver and fish flavors that pets find irresistible. DogToids and CatToids are made with parsley to help freshen breath naturally.

Antioxidant Bars

Antioxidant Bars: "Antioxidant Health Bars, Oatmeal & Apple Recipe
Improved Formula!"

Tiny Yorkshire Terrrier

Here's Lucky! He is a very tiny Yorkie, the toy that is next to him is very small as well. Little dogs need little toys. They also need special care and attention. The hair under and around the eyes can become sticky and cause problems. Inspect their teeth and gums regularly and always feed a healthy premium dog food. The one I like for little guys is Life's Abundance canned foods.

Healthy Dog & Cat Food and The Ingredients to Avoid

Not all pet food is created equal - A healthy diet leads to a healthy, happy pet.
Not only will a healthy diet of good food greatly improve you pet's overall well being, it will add years to your pet's life. Many low-grade pet foods contain harmful ingredients with no nutritional value at all and most are used as fillers that are harmful to your pet and can cause serious health problems.

These are the ingredients to avoid when shopping for a pet food:

•Unnamed food ingredients (poultry by-products, meat and bone meal)
•Protein fillers (corn gluten meal, wheat gluten, egg product meal)
•Carbohydrate fillers (refined flours, wheat, mill runs, brewer’s rice)
•Fats from non-specific sources (animal fat, poultry fat, vegetable oil)
•Synthetic preservatives (BHA,BHT, ethoxyquin)
•Coloring (caramel color, FD&C colors)

Read your labels, do they contain any of these BAD ingredients? If your answer is yes, I urge you to check out Life's Abundance.
Please email me with any questions and I will get back to you promptly.

Valentine's Day NO Candy for Dogs

Valentine's Candy is a NO NO for Dogs
With Valentine's Day approaching fast most of you will likely have some form of chocolate in your house. We all have heard that chocolate can be lethal to your dog, but do you know why? All chocolate products start with the cocoa tree. Theobromine is the ingredient that is used to make all chocolate – especially dark or baker's chocolate – which is toxic to dogs. This is a xanthine compound in the same family of caffeine, and theophylline. A dogs metabolises theobromine very slowly so it can stay in your dog's bloodstream for many hours with a reaction similar to you drinking several cups of strong coffee. During that time it stimulates the central nervous system and affects the heart and kidneys.A lethal dose of theobromine is between 100-150 mg/kg to cause a toxic reaction. There are variables to consider like the individual sensitivity, animal size and chocolate concentration. Here is an example of chocolate types and the amounts of theobromine:Milk chocolate contains 44 mg of theobromine per oz.Semisweet chocolate contains 150mg/oz.Baker's chocolate 390mg/oz.Candies such as, 2 oz. of Baker's chocolate can cause great risk to an 15 lb. dog. Yet, 2 oz. of Milk chocolate usually will only cause digestive problems. Milk chocolate will often cause diarrhea 12-24 hours after ingestion. Try to get your pet to drink water to prevent dehydration.Xanthines, which has the same effects as caffeine, affect the nervous system, cardiovascular system and peripheral nerves. It has a diuretic effect as well. Signs to watch for if your dog gets a hold of Valentines candy: hyper excitability, hyper irritability, increased heart rate, restlessness, increased urination, muscle tremors, vomiting or diarrhea. If you suspect your pet has ingested chocolate contact your veterinarian immediately. They will be able to direct you to what action to take in determining the proper treatment for your pet. Valentine's Day is a fun time to celebrate the one's you love, just make sure your family pets are not helping themselves to some chocolate hearts. Be watchful and give your pet the proper treats. Great one's to try are at Life's Abundance and Flint River Ranch. Click on Dog Treats.

My poodles love Flint Fiver Ranch Fish Biscuits.
