I don't like meat meal because it comes from wherever. o.o

But really, I wouldn't look at the analysis...I really never do, just on foods but not treats.

I mean, it won't kill him or anything.

Worry more about the ingredients than the analysis.

I love fish oil because it helps their skin and coats so much. It also helps my allergy prone shar pei. I add vitamin E to ensure the salmon oil is utilized. I buy yogurt sometimes, because I like the fact that it's good for digestion. They also love it, so that's my main reason is mixing up their d...

Actually, isn't it the avidin in EGG WHITE that stops a dog from absorbing biotin? I'm quite sure there's nothing in the shell to cause that.

I give my dogs ivermectin as heartworm preventative, and I squirt it on a piece of bread, then feed it.

I think you can also inject it, if that might be easier.

I should add, a lot of people use amitraz dips on their dogs for mange. But it's not personally something I would trust, as I think there are a lot more methods that could be tried first.

There are different topicals, ivermectin, immune system support...I would try all those before the dips.

Amitraz, I meant. "Amitraz kills ticks by disrupting normal nerve function leading to reduced feeding and attachment, paralysis and death. Amitraz is an inhibitor of the enzyme monoamine oxidase (MAO), which is responsible for degrading the neurotransmitters norepinephrine and serotonin. Well e...

Promeris, I think. I believe it's the new flea treatment. It's not really new-just repackaged. It's Amitrax, which is what they've always used for demodex dips. It's really scary stuff, I'd never use it. It can cause vomiting, depression, birth defects...all just in vet techs doing the dipping.

My vet keeps them over night, but there is a tech there at all times. They have an overnight number you can call, and speak to the tech about how your pet is doing. And the vet is always on call over night for the clinic. There are other places that do it cheaper, but this is the best vet I have fou...

The clay provides trace minerals. There is hardly any egg at all! There's more olive oil and salt than there is egg. At that level it's not an issue at all.

Re: Yay!!! Blue gets his nuts chopped off monday!

yup , blue is going to be neautured (sp) on monday. hopefully it will calm him a little and help stop humping other male and female dogs. i couldnt belive how much it costs though. the women at the vet told me about 190$ :eek: Are you serious? That's CHEAP. $350 for a spay here, $280 for a neuter. ...

I would be too. Vaccines are not completely innocuous like many people like to think.

I don't do yearly vaccines...google it and you'll find some interesting articles. Most vets now recommend every three years or less. Vaccines are never without side effects and are not completely safe. If your dog is already immune(which he likely is) you are doing more harm than good.
