Natural Sunscreen For Dogs…

Natural Sunscreen for Dogs... A VERY optimistic poster just asked me did I know of any natural sunscreen ideas for a very white little Staffie pup. This was interesting as I remember hearing that seed oils are naturally SPF. Two things you might not know about sunscreen. The first is, did you know that the difference between say SPF 20 and SPF 50 is simply a matter of time you are permitted in the sun? This was news to me, I thought it was a strength measure! I hope at [...]

Travelling Abroad With Your Dog…

Travelling Abroad With Your dog, a Note on Blood Titres and Passports... As the evidence builds against the gross over-vaccination of our pets, more and more people are asking me for travel advice, specifically on vaccinations when crossing borders. Currently, pets are required to be dosed up to the eyeballs before they go anywhere, often to a ridiculous degree. Case in point the rabies jab for movement between two rabies free countries, even when that pet has already been vaccinated for rabies. This sort of nonsensical approach stems from the [...]

Waivers for Kennels and DayCares

Waivers for Kennels and Daycares... I think the majority of us on here do not believe in the practice of annually boosting already vaccinated animals, or an entirely ineffective kennel cough "vaccine", not to mention chemical flea or worm control for animals with no parasites. The problem for us arises when we need to leave our dogs in kennels or daycare. For the last few months I have speaking about possible waivers for these premises in that, should you wish to leave your vaccinated (but not annually boosted) dog in [...]

chicken or beef allergies in dogs

Ever Wonder how / why Dogs can Suffer Chicken and Beef Allergies?! A New Theory... As I like to say, a dog being allergic to beef or chicken should be as strange as a cow being allergic to grass. So, how can dogs become sensitive to a food group that would normally make up the majority of his diet? I always find it strange that this question does not puzzle our vets more. Please note, it is rarely a food allergy, per se, that we see in dogs. A true [...]

Botanica, For Skin Conditions in Dogs

Botanica, Natures Healing Energy So, who's heard of Botanica?! As we're now stocking them! Botanica is an Irish company making natural products that target the heal and repair of a great variety of common skin conditions in dogs (as well as horses and humans). And by all accounts they do it very, very well. There are two lead products that I wish to talk about, a herbal wash and fast absorbed cream, which are used together to treat the affected area. Both products are packed with herbs knows for their antiseptic, [...]

Tips for Buying Dry Dog Food…

Top Tips for Buying the Best Dry Dog Food If you absolutely have to feed dry food, for whatever reason, then it really doesn't matter who is making or selling your "complete" dry food of choice, as there's so little between these brands, bar marketing budget. So here's a few top tips for buying the best dry dog food before you hand over that hard earned cash... 1. Avoid All Wheat-Based Dry Food Wheat is the number one antigen in dogs by FAR. Dogs are one of the most wheat gluten sensitive [...]

Check out the Number of UK Vets now Offering Blood Titres!

Check out the Number of UK Vets now Offering Blood Titres! For those of you who don't know already, the whole redundant concept of boosting ALREADY VACCINATED DOGS each year for viruses is now second only to the concept of promoting cereal-based dry food for carnivores on the list of "most erroneous veterinary practices being conducted today". Blood titres for dogs are clearly the answer. If you do not know what these are I urge you to read the following article and if at all possible, show it to your [...]

Biodegradable Poo Bags, The Inside Scoop!

Biodegradable Poo Bags, The Inside Scoop! Nice title, eh?! Seriously though, we know plastic is really bad for the environment. Plastic goes into landfill and doesn't break down. Or, it does, but extremely slowly, meaning it releases all it's chemical nastiness slowly through all the garbage into our water table. Not good. Thus we're being steered away from cheap, disposable plastic bags (via taxes which, in fairness, is a great way to modify people's behaviour towards caring for the environment) towards bags-for-life. However, a poo-bag-for-life in the pocket is slightly [...]

Do you have a license for your dog?!

Do you have a license for your dog?! I was approached yesterday with the question - how many dogs are there in Ireland? However, in trying to research the answer I came across a more interesting question, how many of you actually have a dog license?! Here's what we found... How Many Dogs Actually Are There in Ireland?! Do you know how many dogs there are in Ireland? The Irish Independent cites a study conducted by the Pawsitive Living campaign (Pedigree and Whiskas, a.k.a. Mars) that found 30% of Irish households [...]

Applied ZooPharmacognosy

Applied ZooPharmacognosy Two weeks ago a lady asked me did I know of any Applied ZooPharmacognosy (AZ) practioners in Northern Ireland? In Northern Ireland?!!! I don't even know any in the South either. In fact, to be honest, I wasn't exactly sure what it was. Then I got to thinking. We recently added Holistic Hound's range of our products to our store as the reviews of her products are resoundingly impressive. Behind these products is Jo Arbon, and I seem to remember reading something about AZ on her website. Sure enough, [...]
