Re: Need quick answer about flea preventative

Also, what kind of food do you feed? Low quality diet promotes a breeding ground for fleas. Nice sugary blood from low quality foods is what fleas really love Nature's Variety kibble and raw for the dog. (Can't get much higher quality than that.) The cat gets Petsmart's brand, Authority. Loki gets ...

Need quick answer about flea preventative

I just realized how bad the fleas on Loki really are tonight when I went to trim her toenails. I'm going out tomorrow to buy area spray and that diatomaceous earth for the yard. I plan on spending the day launching an all-out attack on the fleas. She just got her Frontline -- and so did the cat -- e...

They are??? Woops. :oops: What about strawberries? I haven't heard anything bad about the strawberries. But evidently grapes (and their dehydrated cousin, the raisin) are bad for dogs. Loki gets a few grapes because I feed her fruit cocktail from time to time, and she really digs the grape juice. I...

Yeah probably not a good idea. Loki sticks to grape juice. (Wait, aren't grapes dangerous for dogs, too? Yikes!)

Thanks for all the info. Loki is on Frontline Plus, I just never remember to call it that. I'd like to get Kiba (the cat) on something equally good, its just not in the budget this week. As soon as possible, though, because the last thing I need is a real infestation.

More flea problems

Little background on Loki here. She is on Frontline, gets garlic in her food, and gets a flea bath whenever I feel its necessary. I also have an indoor cat who is mostly confined to his own room (generally because I like to leave the door open so Loki can go in and out). He's been treated for fleas,...

Scot (Matrix) feeds the dogs he's campaigning Nature's Variety. Its one of the best foods out there, IMO. I don't show in conformation, but when I'm trimming my girl up for a weight pull, we do flirtpole, handwalking, drag-walking, and practice pulls. I also spend some time having her chase a ball a...

I've heard they do pediatric speuters as early as 6 weeks. Don't quote me on that, though. I'm no vet. :)

I do about a half-raw diet, and definitely notice a difference. Would do all-raw, were it not for lack of food space.

My dogs have always carried in a bit of a wet dog odor when they come in from outdoors. Its generally temporary, and goes away after 5-10 minutes inside. But I can vouch for the diet affecting how a dog smells. Our dogs have become less smelly over the years as we've become more educated dog owners,...

A good age to start breeding? When you're old enough to do it correctly. When you're old enough to title your dogs in conformation and working events, as well as providing health testing to weed out genetic diseases. When you're old enough (or I guess young enough) to understand the impact what you'...

If you're talking about dog treadmills, they're expensive. They seem to start at around $1000. I would think that someone who has skill with a welder could build one, though.
