Road's End Papillons: We advocate raw, fresh, real food for our canine friends and pets.

Please remember that our puppies are raised on raw-, fresh- , real food and by the time they are 8 weeks old, they eat the same menu as our adults do.
There is no kibble, canned food, nor food purchased from a pet food company.Our dogs don't eat de-hydrated food neither. (would you?) Only fresh food right from the grocery store is given to them, - now since 5 years.
Only applicants for a possible purchase on a puppy, (junior, or adult) with full intentions of feeding such menu are accepted.



Overdosing of Pet Vaccines

The Dangers of Vaccine Overdosing

Over-vaccinating and the overdosing of pet vaccines has become a global issue. 5 lbs dogs are receiving the same dose of the rabies vaccine as 150 lbs Great Danes, and vets are now witnessing terrible side effects.

Hot Spots

These Painful, Oozing Sores Appear Suddenly and Are Hard to Get Rid Of

By Dr. Becker

A hot spot on your dog (or less likely, your cat) is a raw, painful area of skin that is usually an angry red color and the hair has often been licked, rubbed or bitten off. The area over and around the hot spot is typically crusty and stinky. The medical term for hot spots is pyotraumatic dermatitis or superficial pyoderma. But hot spot is a much better descriptive term for your pet's inflamed, infected skin.

What Triggers Hot Spots?

Just about anything (think flea bites or seasonal allergies) that causes your dog to scratch, lick or bite at an area of skin until it is irritated and inflamed sets the stage for a hot spot.
Hot spots are also created when your dog's natural bacteria overpopulates areas of his skin. When an infection arises from a dog's own bacteria, there is almost always a root cause. Hot spots often occur in dogs with underperforming immune systems. Once the skin is red and raw, it is primed for infection, which creates a vicious cycle of itching, scratching and further injury to the skin.
It's important to realize that hot spots can come on very quickly. For example, you might leave your perfectly comfortable dog one morning to go to work, and by the time you get home, she's obsessing over an area of skin that is irritated, inflamed and oozing. Hot spots tend to be very painful and sensitive to the touch. Any dog can develop the condition, but it's most commonly seen in dogs with thick coats, dirty and/or moist skin and dogs with allergies, including flea allergies.

A Healthy Topper Choice for Dogs

The Most Important Ingredient in Pet Health

For some pet guardians, financial constraints limit their ability to feed the highest level of nutrition to their pets. For others, product availability may be a limiting factor. Many pet owners are uncomfortable with the idea of handling and feeding raw meats to their pets, while others are unable to feed raw diets due to limitations placed by pet therapy, boarding, veterinary, or training facilities.
However, within these constraints, it is possible to improve the diet of all pets. Feeding even a small amount of whole foods, like real meat, eggs, fruits, and vegetables, can bring vast improvement to pet health. There are simple ingredients that have been shown to fight cancer and improve gut health. By incorporating one or two meals made with whole foods each week or by making a healthy topper to mix with processed food, pet health and longevity can be improved.
