Fleas and Ticks: Skip the chemicals and go with a natural product such as Garlic. You can buy the capsules or smear some on a sweet potato and give one daily.
Most folks to include man vets have fallen prey to old wives tales and other nonsense on what dogs should eat.
THINK: Dogs were around long before they were pets, they were hunters, they ate almost the entire animal. If you feed you dog a broad diet to include rawhides, bones, I recommend BEEF bones for most dogs with a hunting lineage of any kind from Yorkies up. I like the beef ribs and large femurs. Dogs need a lot of calcium so then need bones. In addition to Beef bones Chicken NECKS are excellent either raw, boiled/baked or fried.
NOTE most bones in chicken when boiled can splinter, the neck bone is an exception. Fried chicken bones are fine as long as they are a well fried.
Rawhide is the skin of an animal and dogs eat it always have, but some caution is in order. DO NOT give it to them as a FEED STOCK, but rather a treat/snack. A small piece about 2x2 in is fine. Again its NOT FEED STOCK!
Avoid, wheat, barley, corn and soy products which are the primary ingredients in many dog foods and almost all dog treats
I own a dog treat/supplement manufacturing company, we do extensive research and work with vets to insure our products are the best and good for dogs. Our products contain zero additives, chemicals, wheat, barely, soy or corn, artificial anything or any chemicals or preservatives.
Take care of your dog, its the BEST friend you will ever have…
