Hey John I was wondering how the K9-Ballistics bed is working out?? I have a friend with a dog that has chewed up every bed too!

Hi John,

We had a foster dog once that loved to chew EVERYTHING! 🙂 He did well with a Kong brand bed for a long time. It wasn’t chew ‘proof’ but definitely chew resistant. 
I’ve heard good things about beds from a company call K9 Ballisitcs – http://www.k9ballistics.com/ but haven’t used them myself.
Hope this helps.
Adam

Indoor cats can get fleas. Often, though, people think that because a cat is itching that they have fleas. There are two ways to discover if your cat has fleas – one is to see the fleas themselves, often on the thinner hair of the belly. The other is to look for the black gritty debris that seems like coffee grounds, often on the back just up from the tail or behind the ears on the neck. To be sure it is not dirt, put the debris on a damp white cloth – if it turns red it is definitely… Read more »

Yep, fleas can find their way into your home . Many ways this is possible, visiting friends and family coming into your home may be coming from a home with pets that have fleas and the fleas simply hitch a ride with them. You can track fleas into your home if you’ve gone in a location where other pets have been, fleas can hitch a ride on your clothing and hop off when you get home. Fleas are great at location hopping. Also if you have carpet in your home and have had pets with fleas before, flea eggs can… Read more »

I know there will be a great answer from Krista about the conventional approaches and the causes of this challenging problem. As a holistic veterinarian I know that there is an underlying vibrational imbalance that causes most problems and the healing goal is to resolve that imbalance with treatments selected for that individual animal. To better understand this perspective, read the first few chapters of Don Hamilton’s Homeopathic Care of Cats and Dogs or the few pages in my book, the Healthy Animal’s Journal.  Acupuncture (and other TCVM approaches), homeopathy and chiropractic are usually very effective in completely curing this problem… Read more »

Where in Maryland, Nicole? there are great holistic vets in Bethesda, Germantown, Mt. Airy, Baltimore and suburbs, Annapolis, and a few others.  Flower essences are something you can try yourself. They are totally safe. There is an article about them on my site. If the urinating is related to the anxiety, the essences will definitely help. If you worked with an animal intuitive (terri diener is at petspeak.com and works by phone, or email me at HealthyAnimals@aol.com for my list of other intuitives), you may discover the reason for her urinating around the house.  You could learn some acupressure points… Read more »

I totally agree with Krista, that every pet and every household need a different approach, and that it is not good to use chemical products from the pet store. Because I am a holistic veterinarian, I have many suggestions for flea control that do not involve chemicals or drugs at all (which can be toxic to some animals). the major drawback is that you do need to participate much more with the holistic approach. You cannot do merely one treatment a month. I find that really healthy dogs do not even attract fleas, so the first step is to build… Read more »

Hello, great question but also difficult to answer without seeing the cat. Several things could be going on. First check for fleas. They could be irritating the skin and causing the hair loss. It could also be ringworm (actually a fungus and not a worm) but it is usually hairless in circular patches– it is highly contagious and usually needs medication to fix. For ringworm treatment is usually antifungal cream on the spots along with lime sulfa shampoo dips. Your veterinarian should be consulted to confirm diagnosis. Another possibility could be allergies . Good luck!!!!-Kelly

Hi Steve, I find it easier when she’s relaxed, especially if she falls asleep in your lap.  Kitties don’t like to be moved, so it’s best to take advantage of a relaxed position on your lap/bed/sofa/kitty bed. Try not to squeeze or pinch when you press the claw out.  You may only get one or two paws done before she loses her patience- just go with the flow, and get the rest when you can.  If you cuddle first, then give some treats afterwards to get back on her good side, she should become more comfortable with allowing you to… Read more »
