Prescription Diets for Papillons, and all other Pets

If your dog currently is on a "prescription diet" I would like you to be aware of it's ingredients. Please read the following article of Dr. Jodie Gruenstern DVM

I will post a copy of a Face Book photo here along with the link to the "must read" article.

"I remember when, as a younger veterinarian, the reps who promoted prescription diets would say, “Be sure to tell your clients that the diet is not guaranteed to prevent recurrence of the condition. However, be sure the pet doesn’t eat anything else.” While one pet after another did have a recurrence, I began to question why a prescription diet was necessary, or for that matter, even a good idea!
Now, it’s been well over a decade and I’ve run a successful holistic practice without using any prescription diets. We manage or cure disease with fresh, healthy species-appropriate diets."

Road's End Papillons owned by Others

 Our little Chianti is already "lived in " in her new home in CA. New photos from her new mom.

These lovely photos where sent to me by the owner of Road's End Rusty Armor. (NC)

Hi, I acquired my previous boy from you one year ago on Easter. He arrived to me in Wilmington, NC after a long journey from Oregon. He is, without a doubt, the most intelligent dog I have ever owned. A wonderful little clown, his antics keep me amused constantly. He loves to hoard items and drags big sticks into the house to chew on them. I have resorted to purchasing expensive indestructible toys for him as he is adept at disemboweling ordinary toys. He knows the names of his toys and where all the treats are kept. He can remember where toys have been hidden for long periods of time. In short, he is a delight in my life. I call him Teddy, but I believe you called him Rusty Armor

Top Model-8.5 Weeks old Papillon Puppy

Our last little butterfly is leaving us next Monday. Girl Yakira, 8.5 weeks old, modeled today a new collection of extra small harnesses.
Our friend and helper Annie has been sewing for my Papillon flock now for quite a while: crate mats, crate covers, and extra small harnesses for tiny Papillon puppies, starting from 6 weeks on of age, with a weight of about 1 Lbs.
Annie has decided to offer these harnesses soon officially to all Papillon owners, and , of course other small Toy Dog owners.
If you have any interest in these tiny creations contact me for now with any questions.

Yakira, our top model!!

Yakira 's new home will be in California.

These 2 little Butterflies are being hold under the knife tomorrow. Due to the fact, that they only each weigh a little over 3 LBS, (1.3 KG) and are both 15 months old, they are going to be spayed. Please pray with me that they will make it through their anesthesia just fine, and have a speedy recovery.

Papillon Fans & Friends @ Road's End

A wonderful day yesterday. Long-time "electronic" friends finally got to go to become real-, physical friends.
The visitors came all the way up to us from Southern California, a 1000 + mile drive. Our day together was not long enough for us to share our love and enthusiasm over our Butterfly breed.
(Some of the pictures where taken by Annie, our friend and helper)
