A special tip from Carole

Affordable & effective parasitic control

Going natural for flea, tick, mosquito and mite control is the most affordable and cost-effective protection available for your dog.

Compare the cost of an Easy Defense Tag with its one year life span against the expense of other flea and parasitic control medications, which must be continually reapplied on a regular basis. Not only will it save you money, it also offers these additional benefits:

  • Completely safe for your pet with no possible side effects
  • Repels mosquitoes in addition to fleas and ticks
  • Guaranteed to protect your pet from biting insects e.g. mites.

Important Note - If Your Pet Has Fleas:

The Easy Defense Tag is designed for flea and tick prevention, not eliminating infestations. If your pet is already infested by fleas, this means their environment is also infested, and the flea and tick tag on its own will not be enough to remove the infestation. To eliminate existing flea infestations, we strongly recommend complementing the tag with other natural flea removal products:

The Easy Defense Flea & Tick Tag takes just three weeks to activate, and must be clipped to a flea and tick free dog who is kept flea and tick free for the duration of the activation period until protection clicks in.

The tag offers long-lasting protection for your pooch and you will not only gain a happy healthy dog but gain more for your buck. Just clip it on and forget it!


Everything you need to know about
Your puppy's breath

 

What's in puppy breath that makes it so irresistable?
Five tips to help you keep your puppy's breath smelling fresh and sweet

Everything you need to know about Puppy Breath.

What's in puppy breath that makes it so irresistable?

The delightful and addictive smell of your puppy's breath is a combination of mild puppy food and the mamma dog's milk.

Sadly puppy breath only lasts a few months. Thereafter your dog's breath will depend very much on what you feed him or her.

If you are an advocate of raw feeding and you start your puppy off on raw food for instance Freeze-Dried-Food soft raw and bones to chew on together with having regular dental checks with your vet, your puppy will turn into an adult dog which will always have a sweet smelling breath.

That is off course, if he or she doesn't get sick, because like humans, dogs do get a bad breath when they are not well and is an indication you need to take your puppy or dog to your vet pronto.

However, if you give your dog commercially produced canned food or dried food, e.g. kibble to eat and pay little attention to any dental care routine at home or dental visits to your vet, plaque and calculus/tartar will begin to accumulate on their teeth, your pooch will no longer have a sweet-smelling, pure breath.

All-Natural Pigs Ears for Dogs from www.carolesdoggieworld.com - Low in fat and a great option for smaller dogs to chew and gnaw on. No preservatives or added flavourings.

In fact your dog will end up with Gingivitis and Periodontal Disease at best, or at worst with horrible Bacterial Infections and a fowl smelling breath and an extremely painful mouth.

Five tips to help you keep your puppy's breath smelling fresh and sweet

These tips are especially designed to guide you through the basis of starting and there after maintaining a daily routine for keeping your puppy's teeth and gums clean and healthy. They are relatively simply and not unlike taking care of your your childrens' teeth and indeed your own.

Tip 1

Try your level best to start your new puppy on raw food, and in particular lots of soft raw bones.

Feeding bones requires common sense.

The benefits using dental sprays to get rid of plaque and calculus (tartar).

Obviously chicken necks and wings are more suited to toy and smaller breeds, whereas it would be dangerous to feed the same to large breeds because they could so easily get caught in their throats. It makes far more sense to feed large beeds soft beef brisket bones.

Please do not feed your dog any weight bearing large Bones as these could break your dog's teeth. Broken teeth are excriciating painful and extractions are expensive because your vet would have to put your puppy under a general anaesthetic.

Tips 2 to 5 are for owners who either:

  • feed their dogs cooked food in which case soft food remains on their dogs' teeth after they have eaten, or
  • feed their dogs manufactured off-the-shelf canned dog food, which again leaves soft food on dogs' teeth after they have finnished eating.

Tip 2

Start cleaning and brushing your puppy's teeth as soon as you adopt or rescue him or her. Please see our segment on How To Clean Your Dog's Teeth.

Tip 3

EZDOG Dental Kit  available from www.carolesdoggieworld.com - Gentle Nylon Bristles, three flexible heads, tongue cleaner and natural vanilla flavour. Total clean in one convenient kit.

Clean your puppy's teeth at least twice a day, but ideally immediately after it has eaten. Please see our segment on Dog Dental Care.

Tip 4

If it isn't possible to clean or brush your pup's teeth after it has eaten, try to get him or her to finish meals with a raw bone or a natural hide chew bar e.g. a Pigs Ear. Please see our segments on Rawhide and Your Dog's Diet.

Tip 5

Always feed your puppy good quality natural or organic food. Please see our section on Allergy Free Dog Foods.
