Dog ear cleaning is an important part of dog hygiene. Some dogs are more susceptible to ear infections than others. Floppy-eared or furry-eared dogs, such as the cocker spaniel, are prone to ear infections. Lack of air circulation within the ear, accumulation of moisture, bacteria, fungi or mites can cause dog-ear infections.
The product you choose is also important as well as seeking veterinary attention to rule out any problems requiring medical treatment.

Aroma Paws Massage Lotion

  Dog massage includes a variety of techniques — some centuries old and others quite new.  It has been used to calm show dogs, to relieve pain in working dogs, and to increase energy and focus in agility dogs.  Now it is available to improve the quality of your pet’s life.
    Massage is part of a complete wellness program for your dog.  A massage will relax muscles, invigorate circulation, and stimulate key acupressure points.  Massage does not substitute for veterinary care, but complements it.  Regular massage can often bring important changes in your pet’s condition to your attention so that medical advice can be sought before the problem becomes advanced.

Why do dogs need massage?

  
   Dogs today live in much better conditions, but they are often bored and underexercised. Massage can relax tension while also stimulating both mind and body.  It is especially helpful as our animals’ life spans lengthen.  Our world has changed — and our pets’ needs have changed with it.

Ann Tarvin learned her dog massage skills from canine massage pioneer Jonathan Rudinger at the PetMassage Training and Research Institute in Toledo, Ohio.  She holds Practitioner and Instructor Level Certificates in Dog Massage and also a Certificate in WaterWork for dogs. She is a member of the International Association of Animal Massage and Bodywork.

 

Consult your dog’s veterinarian before beginning a massage program.If working with a fragile dog or one with limited mobility due to a joint problem, an injury, or surgery, knowledge of canine anatomy and biomechanics is essential, says Carla Campbell, a Seeing Eye graduate and canine masseuse in Menlo Park, Calif. In those situations, it really does pay to call in a pro, she advises.
 
Just as pleasant scents and relaxing music contribute a positive effect during human massage, so is the same for your dog.

Bamboo & Hemp For Dogs!

Standard

NuHemp Omega Sauce 

Bamboo and Hemp have been in the canine news a lot lately and with good reason.

Hemp

Hemp oil is touted for it’s nutritional value in supplements packing a high amount of linoleum acids, an omega-6 fatty acid essential for skin health to maintain a protective barrier between the outside and inside of the body.

As an oil, hemp actually has a superior ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6 fatty acids, with the Omega 3 component being in a higher, correct ratio to the Omega 6 fatty acids. This actually makes hemp oil preferable and superior than flax seed oil, which has been long been the gold standard as an excellent source of Omega 3.

Hemp is also able to be made into a strong durable fiber. Since hemp has natural antifungal and antibacterial properties it is ideal for dog collars . Hemp is a fiber that breathes and hemp is grown without the use of pesticides it is especially good for sensitive skin.

Hemp is a sustainable crop; it grows well with out the aid of herbicides, fungicides or pesticides. Hemp can replace wood fiber and save forests for watershed, wildlife habitat, recreation, oxygen production and carbon sequestration-reducing global warming.

For the most part, hemp is grown without pesticides because it is a much hardier plant which makes it less vulnerable to insects, pests, drought, mildew, and other poor growing conditions. Therefore, it is easier to grow organically without pesticides and other chemicals. In this regard, hemp is good for the environment and our bodies.

Bamboo

Makes a wonderful material for dog collars and clothes as it is

• Naturally Anti-bacterial & Odor Resistant

• Hypoallergenic, UV Protection and Natural undyed Webbing

 • More Absorbent & Fast Drying than any other natural fabric on Earth
