Day to Day Pet Care
This is a question I hear with great frequency so in this article
I will provide you with the names of products I prefer to use on my
dogs,.... and I have asked Dr. Wagner to carry the products at First
Choice Naturals Inc., so they are available in one place,
for myself and my puppy buyers.
Below is a list of what I use and Dr. Wagner now has them in two
kits available at FCN - Basic Daily
Care Kit and the Deluxe Daily Care Kit.
Ears - nothing beats K9 Ear Solutions - not only for general cleaning, but swimmer's ear, ear infections and it is the best for the worst chronic yeasty ears. This product works better than anything I have found for ear health or anything I have gotten from the vet.
Eyes - I like to use an all natural product called Eyes So Bright for general eye cleansing. For eye infections I use OxEdrops in a DILUTED SOLUTION ONLY (1/2 teaspoon OxEdrops and 1 cup distilled water and put in an eye dropper). I use twice a day.
Fleas - I do use a topical flea preparation (Frontline Plus), but in addition I use an all natural insect spray called Neem Protect Spray - it is safe, all natural and helps keep flies, deer flies and other insects away as well. The Protect Spray is nice product to use in conjunction with my topical flea treatment.
Shampoo- Neem Protect Shampoo- is a safe, all natural shampoo and companion product to the Protect Spray.
Teeth - Petzlife Oral Spray - no more anesthesia to have your pet's teeth cleaned. This spray alters the pH of the mouth and plaque will dissolve in a month, then you can use as a maintenance spray weekly. Finally, a no hassle way to take care of your pet's oral health which is a big problem with older dogs. Having clean teeth can mean extending your pet's life by 3-5 yrs.
Also Ark Naturals has a great safe product called Breath-Less
Fizzy Plaque Zappers
Treats - People always ask me
about healthy treats. I have recipes
at my website but if you are busy or have several dogs this is not
always the best choice. I use 3 treats - Eagle
Holistic Treats (Fish and Chicken).
Eagle has a new meat treat the dogs love - it's 90% all meat in 4
flavors. My dogs will kill for one of these treats!!
Skin - Omegas 3-6-9 - One of the biggest mistakes owners make is in adding Omegas to their pet's diet without using a balanced Omega product. Holistic dog foods are carefully balanced their omega ratio in 3-6's, so when you randomly add additional oils to the food you can disrupt this balanced ratio, causing skin problems.
The product I suggest is
Ultra Oil for Pets - which is a balanced 3-6 and 9 Omega
product. IF you insist on using more omegas on your pet's food then
please use a balanced ratio product like Ultra Oil.
Anal Glands - for more information go to this article: The Relationship Between Anal Glands and Tonsillitis.
