phurple0515 ah ok..sige makapaghanap na ng blow dryer hehe

iceylicious sis normal naman na nagkakamot ang dogs e. pero kung madalas, baka kaya allergic sya sa food nya. si kaki pansin ko mas nagkakamot pag chicken yung flavor ng kinakain nya kesa pag yung lamb and apple.

^^ tama si sis gogreen.  malamang sa food yan sis.  si Max ganyan din dati.  Super kamot siya don sa binibigay sa kanya ng breeder niya.  So eventually, we shifted to a premium dog food na, ayun, gumanda coat niya at mas less na pagkakamot. 

Tska sis, super bata pa ni Shylo para sa Anti Tick powder.  Nakakatakot magrecommend para sa puppy mo kasi baby pa talaga siya, hehe :) Post ka nga picture ni shylo.  na-curious tuloy ako sa kanya :)

Pajoin mga sis :-)

Naiuwi ko na rin tzu ko from middle east, problema ko ngayon hindi ako makakita ng same brand ng food nya dito. Hindi nya kasi masyado gusto alpo at pedigree. Baka alam nyo kung san may available na Nature's Gift dog food? Thanks

hindi kasi lahat ng dog food sa ibang bansa available dito. sana nagdala ka kahit 2 kilos ng dog food nila para mashift mo sila sa ibang dogfood na available dito. kaya ayaw niya kumain nung binigay mo kasi baka nanibago.

^ kasi usually, di man nila kainin sa umpisa, pag nagutom no choice sila.  pero the reason sis na nasabi siguro ni sis naiv25 e kasi usually, before you switch dog foods for your dog, me transition period yan para di mabigla ang tyan nila, esp. for shih tzu kasi maselan sila.

it's been 6 months since nahawa si Bacon sa mga garapata ng mga ibang aso nung umuwi kami ng province and hanggang ngayon, ang dami pa rin niyang mga garapata! Sinubukan na namin ang Frontline, Tick powder, soap pero ayaw pa rin mamatay mga garapata niya. Di ko na alam gagawin ko, awang-awa na ko sa kanya kasi wala na siyang ginawa kundi kamutin at kagatin yung sarili niya. :(

^ bring your dog to the vet na lang sis.  they will know what to do, better pa since di nakuha sa Frontline.  agapan mo na kasi ang tagal na pala.

^matagal na nga yung 6 months. pano mo ginamit ang frontline? for 3 or more months ba? it will take some time kasi to completely get rid off them. marami kasing eggs yan.

natry mo na ang apple cider vinegar and garlic? natural flea repellant sila. pwede haluan ng acv ang water or food nya, drops lang muna bigay mo, raw garlic pwede rin iadd sa food nya. I've also read na mas gusto ng ticks and fleas ang mga dogs with compromised immune system, so make sure na healthy ang dog mo, diet nya para di kapitan. fleas can also be a sign of worms, so make sure din na updated ang deworming nya.

search mo rin yung thread on diatomaceous earth, natural pest repellant sya. pwede iapply sa body pati sa house para mamatay ang mga fleas. yung paligid nyo, make sure na walang fleas, kasi kumakalat sila and they can lay hundreds of eggs. kawawa si bacon baka magkaron ng ehrlichia pag di naagapan.

@abuanddiego, every month nilalagay ng vet yung frontline. Kaya ayaw na nga ng nanay ko kasi ang gastos daw pero walang nangyayari.. Sis, san makakabili ng ACV? sige itry ko yun baka gumana...

Nagka-infection na nga siya sa blood kaya for two weeks, binibgyan namin ng antibiotics.. Malikot and maliksi naman siya kaso yun nga, kamot ng kamot. :(

^sinabi nyo sa vet na walang effect ang frontline sa kanya? pag ganyang walang progress, ask for a second opinion na. di lang money nakasalalay but yung health ng dog. tsaka pwede naman kayo na lang maglagay ng frontline, no need for vet presciption yan. baka pineperahan na lang kayo ng vet.

yung acv meron sa groceries, bragg yung bilin mo wag del monte. linisin nyo din mabuti yung house nyo kasi for sure nagkalat na sila sa paligid, hahanap ng host yan at si bacon yung target nila.

oo. sa vet ko kasi muna pinagawa kasi di pa ako marunong maglagay nun dahil first time ko gumamit, pero after around 4 months na parang walang nangyayari, di na kami bumalik. Tpos nung dinala namin si Bacon sa bagong vet, pinablood test na at binigyan siya ng antibiotics since may infection nga daw siya sa dugo na baka dulot ng garapata. Ipapatingin ko na ulit siya bukas para makahanap ng other way para at least mabawasan yung garapata sa kanya. Everyday, tinatanggalan na lang namin siya eh.

Question, effective and safe ba ang flea collar?

^pwede mo rin bawasan ang dosage para makatipid, same din ang effect. eto tip ko sa inyo, pag may product kayong gustong itry, search nyo muna sa net for instructions, reviews ng fellow owners. just by researching mababawasan vet bills nyo. maganda kasi na informed tayo when it comes to their health para di tayo peperahan ng vet. pag nafeel kasi nilang clueless tayo, kung ano-ano iooffer nila kahit di naman kailangan or effective.

yung flea collar, based sa mga kwento sakin, hindi daw effective, malagkit pa sya habang tumatagal, so di ko na iaadvice sa inyo. try mo magspray ng acv sa paligid pati sa body nya. tick and flea shampoo, nakatry na kayo? seargent's yung effective samin.

thanks sis for the tips! oo, ginagamitan rin namin siya ng sergeant's tick and flea shampoo. kumonti naman siya kasi nawalan yung mga big adult garapata. Pero yung mga baby, nandun pa rin..

^palakasin mo immune system nya para di lapitan ng fleas. ano ang food nya? may vitamins ba? swerte kami sa frontline, isang application ko lang patay agad mga fleas. di na naulit yung infestation.

dito sa area namin kahit mapuno, madalang ang ticks and fleas, marami na yung 5 sa isang taon, swerte nga namin. nagkakaron lang yung shih tzu ko pag pinagroom or sinama sa ibang dogs. yung isa naman mga 5x ko pa lang nakitaan sa tanang buhay nya, turning 5 na sya. feeling ko depende rin sa lugar, kasi sa isang bahay namin madami naman, gumagapang pa sila sa sahig.

Nung nagkaron ng garapatskies si Disney ko,  lagi kami nag mamanual harvesting,  hehe.  Pag may free time ako,   patong ko sha sa table,  and harvest ko isa isa sa body nya.  Aside from all the medicated products,  tinutulungan ko din ng manual harvest.

I use a tape dispenser.  I seal each garapat sa clear tape.   Para akong nag gigift wrap.  hehe...
