Kibble is Kibble

Kibble is Kibble is STILL Kibble!By Dr Jeannie Thomason

.....Let's be perfectly clear right here, that processed pet food, (no matter what brand, no matter how much it costs, if the ingredients are organic, or nothing more than road kill and euthanized animals) all ends up the same way - nutritionally DEAD and void of any true nutrition. That's right, it does not matter what "raw materials" you start out with; whether it is premium, grass fed, organic beef, lamb or what have you, the final product is pretty much the same as the cheapest kibble you can buy at the grocery store. .......

Shaving your Papillon's Hair Coat for the Summer? Be aware:

If you are planning to have your Papillon, or any (small) dog shaved for the summer, think again:
Dogs do not have any sweat glands , nor do they have a great amount of blood vessels on their skin.
They simply do not have the ability to dissipate body heat during hot summer days. Dogs do have sweat glands on their foot pads, but that alone is not sufficient to to regulate their temperature.
By shaving your dog, you actually predispose them to  sunburn, and heat exhaustion, or even heat stroke.
If you keep your dog well combed , brushed, mat free, he will have a better circulation of air through his hair, which acts as a cooling effect.


I shave on some of my dogs their bellies, groin, and armpits, but even that only to the minimal.
We have "bugs" out here, like bees, ants, stinging flies. All those bugs have it much easier to sting a shaved dog than one with plenty of hair.

Conclusion:
Keep your friend well groomed, have plenty of fresh water, and don't shave your dog.

How to Make Flea and Tick Spray for Pets

MATERIALS

  • 2 oz Water
  • 2 oz Witch Hazel
  • 3 drops Lavender essential oil
  • 3 drops Lemon essential oil
  • 3 drops Eucalyptus essential oil

TOOLS

  • Dark colored spray bottle, 4 oz.
  • Plastic pipettes

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Fill bottle halfway with water.
  2. Fill the rest with witch hazel. Leave a little room for the oils.
  3. Add essential oils using the pipettes.
  4. Shake well to combine.

TO USE

  1. Shake before each use.
  2. Spray on your dog, coating the fur generously with the spray, before heading outdoors.

NOTES

It's important to use blue or amber colored glass bottles. Essential oils can lose their potency when exposed to UV rays, and they also eat away at plastic.
