How To Care For Your Fur Babies

I love dogs! I call them "my furry grandchildren." We have a two year old Shih Tzu named "Bite." My eldest son has a Pomeranian-Japanese Spitz mix named "Fang." They are the gentlest, cutest, most loyal dogs!
Having a dog does not only mean feeding them and giving them a bath. Like children, they have to be given care and attention to keep them healthy. I walk Bite three times a day. It gives him time to explore the neighborhood and it helps me get my exercise too. He gets a thorough brushing every other day. I choose his meals and make sure there are no artificial additives.
Bite gets to see the vet once a month for his wellness check up. My vet recommended that I purchase some items for pet care. These are for eye and ear care, and for prevention of flea and tick infestation. I heeded her advice and would want to share them with you.
I know most of us are dog lovers and these products are really doing a great job keeping my furry grandchildren happy and healthy. They are my bundle of joy!

Eye Care

Eye Care
Just like little kids, dogs can get some things in their eyes or get irritated by dust, smoke or pollen. Flushing them out with a mild solution relieves your dog of eye irritation and discomfort. Only Natural Pet - Eye Care is also suitable to clean the eye stains around the corners of your dog's eyes. Safe and gentle for both dogs and cats.

Ear Care

Ear Care
Cleaning your dog's ears is not as easy as using a Q-Tip. So how would you promote ear healthy in your dog? We can use ear cleaning solutions like the Vet Basics General EAR CLEANSER 4oz bottle size. is a soothing, safe and effective ear cleansing solution specifically formulated to deodorize and gently clean, dry and acidify the pet's ear canal, providing a healthy environment for the ears. It also has aloe vera to soothe the ear canal. It can be used for both dogs and cats of any age.

Get Rid of Ticks and Fleas

Get Rid of Ticks and Fleas
It is not good if your dog gets ticks and fleas. For an especially active dog who loves running outside, it seems inevitable that one day, you'd find them scratching to no end because of ticks and fleas. Frontline - Plus 12 Pack Extra Large Dog is a special formulation that kills ticks, fleas, flea eggs and larvae. One tube = one month protection!

Deshedding Tool

Deshedding Tool
Brushing your dog's coat can sometimes be a hassle, especially if you come across knots and tangles. I have bought several combs and brushes, however, the best one is still the FURminator - Medium Dog 2.65in. It effectively removes undercoat and loose hair. Recommended by professional groomers, this tool can be used for dogs and cats. There is a right FURminator to use for your pet's coat length.

Dog Shampoo

Dog Shampoo
My little Bite loves his baths. He loves staying in the sink filled with lukewarm water. When choosing a dog shampoo, I opt for formulations that are not harsh on their coat and skin. A plus factor for me is a shampoo that gives my furry grandchildren a clean, fresh, long lasting scent. Only Kay - Lambert Kay Fresh n' Clean Scented Shampoo for Dogs 16 fl oz has given me all that I am looking for in a great dog shampoo. Hands down satisfied customer. Paws down happy dog!

Dog Treats

Dog Treats
Just like taking care of little children, I make it a point to reward good behavior in Bite and Fang. They both love Purina - Beggin Thick-Cut Maple Flavor Dog Treats. It is a great way to help me to teach them to behave, and to learn some tricks. So far, so good. Their toys are still all over the apartment, they still hide the rugs under the table, and they still wipe their mouths on the kitchen rug. So what? I give them a reward nevertheless for just being downright cute!
