Wellness Wednesday: About Our Tears

Wellness Wednesday: About Our Tears

One of the most frequent questions we get is “how do you not get tear stains?”. We will tell you our secret but it’s probably not the answer you were hoping for. We like many dogs get tear stains, we tried avoiding certain foods and […]

Wellness Wednesday: Fleas and Ticks

It’s that time of year where not only are we back to hanging outside more but the bugs are back too. Tammy thinks that naps will keep fleas and ticks away. Solid attempt Tammy, but no. We useĀ Wondercide to help keep fleas and ticks away. […]

Wellness Wednesday: Home Grooming

Wellness Wednesday: Home Grooming

Are anyone else’s humans resorting to home grooming during these difficult times? Our human definitely is, she says just because we we are stuck at home doesn’t mean we can be dirty (but apparently she can wear the same sweatpants 3 days in a row šŸ¤”). Our human normally touches us up between grooming appointments so she has a pretty good routine down. There are alot of great resources on YouTube for people doing this for the first time. Are you grooming at home right now?

Wellness Wednesday: Keeping Your Distance

Wellness Wednesday: Keeping Your Distance

Riley here coming at you from my pillow fort. Some of you may remember that I was practicing social distancing before it was cool. I used to have really high anxiety in new places and meeting new people. For me my humans found that training […]

Wellness Wednesday: Hiking

Wellness Wednesday: Hiking

I love to hike, particularly with my man human. There are so many smells out in nature and I love taking them all in (and scrounging for snacks). This pic is me at the top of a small mountain near our house. I had my […]

Wellness Wednesday: Coconut Oil Hydration

Wellness Wednesday: Coconut Oil Hydration

After Toro came to stay with us our human noticed one of his lips was a little dry. After a little research she started adding coconut oil to his food. His dry lip is almost completely cleared up. Coconut oil can improve a dog’sĀ skinĀ and coat, digestion, and reduces allergic reactions. Have you ever tried coconut oil?

Wellness Wednesday: Meeting a Friend

Wellness Wednesday: Meeting a Friend

We are currently fostering 9 year old Toro fromĀ @frostedfacesĀ (who is available for adoption). This is the first time we have ever fostered and our humans were a little worried because apparently we can be territorial over our house sometimes šŸ™„. To make sure we all […]

Wellness Wednesday: Ear Infections

Wellness Wednesday: Ear Infections

When my humans first adopted me the vet noticed that I had yeast infections in each of my ears. Since then my human has been extra proactive about keeping my ears clean. Twice a week she uses this ear cleaner on me with the tip […]

Wellness Wednesday: Heart Specialists

Wellness Wednesday: Heart Specialists

Heart problems are very common in dogs, particularly in dogs over the age of 10. In June 2018 when Delilah was 11 we found out she had a heart murmur. We were working through diagnosis and treatment with our regular vet when our holistic vet recommended seeing a veterinary cardiologist. At the time I didn’t know such a thing existed. Delilah saw a veterinary cardiologist in Sept 2018. The diagnosis, prognosis and medication Delilah received from the veterinary cardiologist was different than what we heard from our regular vet. Though I believe our regular vet was well intentioned she was not a specialist and didn’t have the same quality of equipment or level of expertise that the veterinary cardiologist had. There are a lot of veterinary specialists out there. If your pup is diagnosed with something we highly recommend looking into some of the specialist options in that field, you might be surprised with what you find. I’m not sure this is the same for all specialists but the price the cardiologist charged for a visit was very similar to the charge from my regular vet for the same type of visit. Have you ever sought out a veterinary specialist?
