Lola’s Summer Days! Not for sensitive stomachs

In summer time everything seems to slow down, even the dogs’ energy is at an all time’s low. Plenty of water, air conditioning while regularly spraying them with the mint and lavander mixture, so they smell like a garden in bloom:) helps!

The big event during the month of July was that a stool specimen showed Lola had whip worms! A quick read made me understand this was no joking matter, as the whip worms could be extreemly dangerous if not treated properly and promptly.

I researched several pets’ meds web sites  in a desperate attempt to save money and treat my dog properly.  I found that the best for my Lola’s needs was  www.entirelypets.com. I  promptly purchased several great products at convenient prices.

The Panacur C Canine Powder dewormer seemed to be the only to treat whip worms. Because of the good price I was able to treat preventively all my dogs..

The lesson I learned was to  have regular stool checks for my dogs  even if I think they are fine. Of course, most importantly, in six weeks after the deworming treatment they will  go back to the vet for to be checked.

Meanwhile, everyone  is happy and hot!

Have a good rest of the summer everyone and next weekend, please check out the NEW BLOG www.rodisfindoftheweek.wordpress.com for stories which will SAVE YOU MONEY and more!

P.S.

ImageAnother product I purchased, NIXIT, as research shows it is because of a lack of B-vitamins that some dogs delight in eating other dog’s excrements, or as in Lola’s case anything that one could or could not imagine. A true toddler, she is:)

Did you know it takes over $2,000 to remove a chicken bone from a dog’s intestinal track?

Natural Remedy for Bad Breath!

They call it dog breath for a reason, not that my dogs suffer from it, but a fresher breath is always welcomed.

I recently visited some awsome web sites and this recipe is from http://dogtime.com,  Top Ten Natural Dog Remedies.

This is the one I personally tried. I made just one change,instead of chopping the ingredients, I put them in a blender, and added a little water  because I learned on another web site (www.besthomemadedogfoods.com — I liked it on my face book wall too) ) that dogs have a short digestive track and are not assimilating vegetables unless they are eaten in a very fine form. As much as some of us dislike it, dogs are carnivores.

Here is the recipe for bad breath.

Mix shredded carrot with lime (I only had lemon juice) and 1/2 cup fresh mint.

I blended and added some water and poured as the web site suggested,Image, in ice cubes trays and gave them as treats.

Lola, who is always hungry, no matter how much she eats, seems satisfied. However do NOT over treat your dog, as always, less is more and moderation the mother of all wisdom.

Finally, why not try one yourself? I did:) Delicious and refreshing!

Stay cool this summe!.

Love and Teeth

When Lola is asleep she is so beautiful and peaceful. If I rub her belly she twists her body trustingly to get more of the good touch, so important to everyone, including humans, but some don’t know it. In one of these moments of total trust, I noticed that Lola, whose coloration is black except  few white hairs at the tip of her tail and two white spots on her chest, has a “designer white heart”  on her belly! I take this as a sign that she wears her loving self on the outside. Yet it is hard to detect and I had to really look and pay attention and take my time. I wondered how many times in life loving people went by me and because their real selves wasn’t obvious I paid no attention and dismissed or misinterpreted.

Going back to Lola, in contrast with the heart on her belly come her teeth! They could be dangerous weapons but  playfully I I taught her the gentleness of touch how much is too much and when to stop biting. Now she knows (as she truly is the brightest of dogs!) and I trust her with my finger and she stops biting before it becomes painful. She knows but someone had to teach her good from bad, a loving bite from a painful bite.

Her God given heart, symbol of who she really is and her teeth, which could have been hurtfull weapons, match each other, because she understands good from bad. 

Now, more than ever, I am convinced there are two sides to everything  and as the Native American story tells us, it is the wolf we feed that survives.
