A tip for small mouth dogs if the kibble is too large or hard for little ones. Put some kibble in a tea towel and rap it with a hammer. It's cracks it into smaller pieces for their mouth to handle

Grooming / Video Trial on a Shampoo Addictive
« on: Feb 05, 2016, 13:30 »
I recently found a shampoo additive that has helped my rescue Abby.
Her long hair  tangling and matting terribly and comb outs become a nightmare for her. This was my last resort for I had tried every conditioner ever made for problem knotty hair.
I was frankly dumbfounded it worked and worked so well from the first shampoo....second shampoo this week was even better.
I asked professional groomers why doesn't everyone use this or not aware of it and she said simply that to save on advertising the company now just uses Facebook to get the word out and of course not everyone uses FB do they?
So I'm sharing my secret via a video I made to show you what all professional groomers already know about...

Grooming / Stains and Colloidial Silver
« on: Feb 05, 2016, 13:21 »
Sorry I have been gone way too long and having a catch up day with the forum....
Here's a few things I've been working on.....
I've had some good results lately treating bacteria, yeast and red stains under the eye and chin that were wet from tears or drinking water, red fur between the paw pads and thought I'd share the results.

I was using a name brand Colloidal silver in liquid form and gel at 15% ppm was helping my females wet weepy eyes but it didn't last all day and it wasnt strong enough to kill the bacteria causing the problem with facial staining. Colloidial  Silver has been used for century's in people as a natural antibiotic and bacteria can not grow in its presence.

The 15% gel formula ( Same manufacturer ) wasn't suitable for long facial hair as I left it sticky and eventually hard. But the gel did work better on paw pads...applied at nighttime when it had a chance to stay on the paw longer.

So I read all the PDF files on manufacturing Colloidial  Silver and found not every brand is the same...cutting to the short's how Not how finely the silver into microns but rather the weight added per million to sterile water...Also the process of of charging the ion in the silver is important in manufacturing.

So I found a UK supplier that was manufactured under laboratory conditions at 30% ppm....That's double my previous.
999 Silver (80% ionic, 20% particulate) in steam distilled water, Ph 8.46. Average particle size 27 nm  as determined by TEM.
The results started showing within one week....

Abby had a whisker pad that stayed so wet all the time from tears the hair was actually rotting in patches.
Her eyes were no longer weeping with tears, the mucous deposits were minimum in the morning and she was no longer rubbing her face on anything upright because it itched. Now her face and eyes stayed dry around the clock with a fine spray twice a day.
Her red stained white hair got no deeper in color and white new hair was growing in with no stains what so ever.
Her face no longer smells of yeast and she's not rubbing her face on furniture anymore.

After one month a noticeable difference as you will see.

With such good results I started my male on the same spray for red stains from tearing in his deep skin fold and got the same results. Dryer eyes,  staining lessened.

Are my results the typical? That I do not know.....But I can attest it did work on my two dogs.
It must be applied twice a day and without fail for it to work. Abby's eyes will go back to tearing excessively if I stopped but she is a ill bred puppy mill dog with bad genetic's.
My male is a better bred dog but I know him and his tear air gets in there and it's a perfect breeding ground for bacteria...wet and I apply it every day.
As the old stains grow out I'm trimming just the in another month Abby will have white whiskers again and a white chin.

So here's my results in pictures....

So glad he's finally well. I just went through colitis also and it's one of the most frustrating illness's for my dog and myself especially when mine was in full drop coat!  That's another story lol

Dog treats / Re: puppy chewa

I managed to get some rabbit ears that went down well. Dried tripe sticks are a real favourite not too hard for a puppy either. Fallow deer antler, buffalo horn, anco root, beef jerky, chicken feet, pigs noses, paddy wack are all favourites in this house. Things to dehydrate in very low oven temp, slices of chicken breast, meats and fish, sweet potato is always a hit
I'm sure there's something in that lot that would be suitable

I had bought two bags of the tripe sticks but it made my male dog sick each time sadly I had to toss both bags.
He has a sensitive tummy though.

Dog treats / Re: Paw Oatmeal Cookie
« on: Jun 21, 2015, 15:36 »
They are baked in teaspoon size. So one cookie is enough.
They freeze well and only have to take out one for each dog, by the time they get to room temp its in time for a afternoon treat.
I do enjoy cooking for me babys
