Good morning everyone!  Just want to give a quick shout-out to Julianne and the rest of the gang at MilitarySOS.com !  I appreciate your interest in pet health.  Good luck to you and your families and we have you all in our thoughts and prayers!

Orli wanted to thank you too, but she is too busy being beautiful and barking at people on Main Street in Rockland, Maine.

Poorly behaved

Here’s my little duo of badness taking a siesta behind the checkout counter.

Orli LOVES Barkwheats

We are working in the store this morning (cleaning, maybe some rearranging-sorry Marie) and Orli has spent the last half hour doing this:

I strongly advise that you come by the Loyal Biscuit Co and pick up a box of Barkwheats.  For more information, click on the Barkwheats link in the side bar or click here.

Thoughts on fleas and ticks and mosquitos, Oh MY!

Most of you know that, after I took over this shop, I chose to no longer stock Frontline or Advantage.  While both of these products (and many others) are effective and have their place in many pet’s lives, they deserve serious thought and consideration.  I think it is important that you discuss these products with your veterinarian.  Of course, I don’t believe that most vets know enough about nutrition (see here), but they certainly know about disease and treatment.   I am not opposed to the use of these products and have used them in the past and may use them again.  The potential for bug-borne diseases is very serious and deserves to be addressed both allopathically and holistically, depending on the dog.  Talk to the vet and ask questions.  You have a right to know every possible method and/or product for prevention.  

So, I’d like to have a flea and tick talk, starting with a crash course about the pesky little bugs themselves! (Click each photo for a link to a boring Wikipedia page about each lovely critter.  )

Flea = Yuck Bug

So, what are we trying to avoid by repelling these bad boys?  Well, the biggies are: 

Heartworm Disease

Lyme Disease

Ehrlichiosis

Anaplasmosis

If you want to pull out the big guns (Frontline, Advantix, Advantage, Revolution, HeartGuard), please be certain to get the dosage right.  Always buy the right amount for your dog/cat.  Some products aren’t safe for cats so READ THE LABELS!  I know they are boring, but so is this blog and you’re reading it, right?  Har har har. 

Now, Let’s discuss some alternative methods.  There are several options available for alternative pest control.  Here’s what we have at the Loyal Biscuit Co:

Equinature Bug Gone

Equinature Bug Gone Spray and Wipes

 ArkNaturals Neem Protect

Shampoo & Spray

 

 

ArkNaturals Neem Shampoo

ArkNaturals Neem Spray

These are just a few of the many options we have available at the Loyal Biscuit Co.  When I started writing this post, it was still rainy and cold, but the weather is fabulous now.  Downside?  The bugs will begin their attack any day now.  Be prepared!  

Let’s finish today’s post with a video that teaches us how to identify ticks…
