Pet Skin Spray using Apple Cider Vinegar ; Vinegar works for your pet's hot spots

 Using Apple Cider Vinegar on your pet's Hot spots ;
 Using Apple Cider Vinegar for Flea control ; 
Apple Cider Vinegar for Cat/ Dog Ear infections ; 

Apple Cinder Vinegar. It has many benefits, including healing ( assisting the healing process)  skin problems and hot spots. The  raw, unpasteurized ACV, such as the Bragg brand, helps relieve the actual itching and scratching..  Reduces inflammation and aides in healing ;  spend a few cents more and buy the Raw , unfiltered brand of ACV

( MY ADVICE is not to take the Place of a licensed Vet;  Please seek out your local vet for any chronic ongoing issues ) 
Simply take a Flat cotton pad or cotton ball and dab some apple cider vinegar onto the irritated skin. Your dog may not be a fan of the smell, but no worries, it will quickly fade.

 Apple Cinder Vinegar - Don't use anything less than this brand ; unpasteurized  ACV



Hot spots go away !!! 






Fleas ?
Yes, 
Works on Fleas too ! 

this is a Way to AVOID the commercial chemical-laden treatments ..





Before treating your pet with ACV, do your best to remove as many of the buggers as you can. You can pick them out or use a flea comb, which will also help remove some of the eggs. 
As a rinse, shampoo your dog as you normally would, and rinse thoroughly. Then rinse your pet’s coat thoroughly with ACV and massage. Fleas do not like the odor or taste of the vinegar, so they should bail out or rinse off when you next rinse off the ACV. 
As an added bonus, the ACV will likely improve your dog’s skin and coat.  It can help with dry skin and increase the shine in your pet’s coat. It can also help with odor.
 As a spray, you can use an ACV mixture for flea prevention and control. You can make a simple mixture with one part ACV to two parts vinegar.
Another commonly used recipe is as follows: • 8 oz of Apple Cider Vinegar • 4 oz of warm water • 1/2 teaspoon of salt • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda Mix the salt and baking soda together, then add the mixture to the water and ACV mix in a spray bottle 


                                                                                      
EAR INFECTIONS
Use an ear syringe (found at drug stores) to squirt a vinegar solution into the ear and let it sit for a minute or so, then turn your head and let the liquid drain out.

Solution Mix :
The vinegar solution can be a 50/50 mixture of ACV and pure water, a 50/50 mixture of ACV and rubbing alcohol or a solution consisting of one-third vinegar, one-third pure water, and one-third rubbing alcohol.
ONLY use a few drops each ear of Dog or Cat
If the ear problem persists, see your Vet  professional.
My Advice is not to take the place of your Licensed Vet.

Tear Stains Remedy , My Chelsey and Beverly's Janie bulldog

 ~~~ 3  things you need for Wrinkle Stains or tear stains 




Pads   
Remove  tear stains without pharmaceutical antibiotics. | 50 
tMy English Bulldog Chelsey has had a problem with dry eyes and tear stains.  Chelsey is fed a wonderful grain free food called Zignature Brand.  The tear stains were a chronic problem through her life before I adopted her.  We are dealing with years of poor diet and and neglected eye care.
We now use this Natural product 1 time per day are experiencing  slow and steady results on her tear stains; She is taking a Supplement, using special eye cleaning pads and on an excellent food.
She does suffer from dry eye and uses drops from our Vet.  The eye pads  also helps to reduce redness and itching around the eye.


Tear Stain Causes

Physical characteristics, such as long hair on the muzzle or around the eyes, deep facial wrinkles, blocked tear ducts or bulging eyes can cause tear stains. Biological causes of red tear stains include red yeast, various eye and ear infections and pH imbalance. Red tear stains can also be caused by environmental factors, such as plastic food or water bowls and minerals in the water your dog drinks.




# 1


This can be used with anything that your vet is also using.



bullet Contain no pharmaceuticals or chemicals
bullet Gentle, tearless formula
bullet Safe for even the youngest puppy
bullet Alcohol Free
bullet Nothing to mix 


The reason tear stains are so hard to eradicate is that they are a visible symptom of a deeper systemic problem. The most common cause of the redness is yeast infection (epiphora) which in turn is produced by bacteria. That's why, if you want to get rid of tear stains, it's not enough to simply wipe the eyes with a cleansing product, you also need to supress and destroy the bacteria that are causing the problem. Eye wipes are unique because they are infused with colloidal silver, an antibacterial nano-particle that is highly effective at killing the offending bacteria while leaving beneficial flora and fauna intact.

These eye pads can be found at Amazon.com and some grooming supply stores

Did you know PEARLS Probiotics and NuVet Plus Supplement has Reduced or cured many dogs with chronic Tear stains and Ear Infections ? 



Pick up some PEARLS - it's a probiotic in the Blue box -
 MOST dogs will need 1 PEARL per day for 90 Days and that's it.
 (short term) - sometimes 120 days...  - It's Natural and safe 

It's for humans but pets take it too. IT will help to balance out the Yeast and balance out the ITCHIES.....YOU can find Pearls at Walmart  or the BEST price is BELOW .. SEE LINK 


THIS Is not a drug, it's a Supplement ... 
PLEASE Consult your VET -  As far as I have seen,  PEARLs and other Supplements should be fine with anything your VET currently has your pet taking.

( My suggestions are not to take the place of your licensed Vet )   Seek Vet care for any infection or Illness -  Try Holistic Measures after you have had a diagnosis -- Thanks 

SEE NuVET Plus Wafer info and ordering Below --

NuVET and PEARLS Probiotics work together;  
                        


HEAL from the INSIDE out -- if you have tear stains or EAR infections you have systemic yeast --   Use PEARLs -- 

Rashes - Itching -Body Odor - Smelly Ears - Reoccurring Ear & Bladder infections -Red Skin - Sores - Scabs - Shedding - Arthritis - Genital Discharge - Hotspots - Blackened skin.
Keep in mind the biggest filter organ in the body is the skin so when these toxins leak out of the contained system and into the bloodstream, they eventually make their way to the outer layer, the skin, and deposit the toxins on the surface of the skin causing itching, irritation, odor and then a secondary bacterial infections become a problem as well. Reoccurring ear infections are often treated with antibiotic, which don't even touch yeast infections of the ears, and in fact make it worse as it destroys the beneficial bacteria of the ear canal, altering the pH of the ear and making it comfy for yeast to want to grow there.

Beverly G's Testimonial( NuVET Review) , Jannie Bulldog 

No more tear stains and amazing Coat now... Took a good 90 days for the 100% results, although after the first 45 days I noticed changes not only with the tear stains, but skin, shedding, gas, energy level, sparkle in her eyes themselves, toning of muscle, so many things. I know it was a combined effort, by I also believe this product alone does super wonderful things. I went the exact route you recommended from the start. ~~~~~ Thanks Beverly for your Testimonial..

Homemade Stew for DOGS

So many recipes to choose from !  Here is an easy home cooking recipe your dogs will go CRAZY for each time you cook. 
 If you can't do home cooking 7 days per week at least try it 5 days a week and on weekends do a high quality dry kibble. 

 When offering a dry dog food look for a brand similar to Fromms Family , Zignature or Merrick dog foods .
ALSO, with home cooking you need to balance with a quality supplement ;
 The Vet and clinic recommends the NuVet Plus wafer or powder -  info posted below


                                                             Dog Food Stew  






I like to change up his stew all the time, depending on what fresh meat and produce we get, but here is a rough guide of what ratios I put into it. 
You can easily double/triple this for a larger batch.

Thanks to Amanda for this recipe ! 
1 lb Ground Beef, Chicken or Turkey
1 large Potato or Sweet Potato, diced
1 medium carrot, diced
 1/2 cup Frozen Peas
Saute the meat in a large pot until no longer pink. Don’t drain the fat because that’s good fat for your pooch! If I chose a leaner meat like chicken or turkey, I usually add in couple of tablespoons of coconut oil to give him some fats.

Add the Veggies ;  Pour in just enough water to cover the vegetables. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes, or until the vegetables are cooked.

Stir in the frozen peas. I also add a little bit of sea salt into it for some flavor 

The Food will keep fresh for 3-4 Days in a Tupperware container.

If you want to cook 1 time per week you can freeze up batches of food and use Tupperware Freezer Containers -- NO FREEZER burn with Tupperware ....

Please note;  If you are going to cook Homemade daily you will need to supplement with a bone meal supplement or crushed egg shells  

SNACK : 
For Afternoon snack -  Place some QUALITY Dry kibble in a dish for your pooch to snack on 
I had noted some great brands at the top of this article -
If you are not home during the day just leave some dry food out for you dog to snack on .
