The Best Brush for your dog! Massage brush you can use in the tub.

This is the best brush for dogs!  It works like a magnet to pick up dry loose hair/fur!

I love this brush during our doggie bath time!  Brush the opposite way once they are all suds up with your favorite shampoo.
It massages the skin and pulls away from the dry or loose fur.
We also use it a few times a week playing in from of the TV watching our favorite movie.   




Works great on my Boxer! 

By ERIC 
Best brush I've ever used! It gets so much fur off of my boxer. We have tried combs and used a shedding blade but with her short coat, it can irritate her skin. Since she has short fur most brushes are ineffective on her coat. I used this right away and was amazed how much fur I got in a couple of passes over her back. It also works wonderfully on her tiny hairs on her legs, chest, and belly. It is also very very comfortable to use and it fits in your hand perfectly with multiple places to grip it. The teeth on the brush are flexible rubber. The only downside my girl thinks it toy! I waited to buy this for a very long time thinking it wasn't going to work I regret not getting it sooner.

Cozmo
Before and after use of Paw Soother and Paw Protector. Cozmo loves to walk and be outdoors. His paws have been getting pretty weathered and chapped from Southern California’s sidewalks and dog parks. You can tell he loved both products when he rolled on his back and didn’t even fight me on the application. His paws are already looking better after 1 week of apply the Paw Soother and PawTector. He’s a constant paw licker and I’m glad the product is entirely natural and safe if licked. Cozmo is a happy camper!

Choosing a English Bulldog Veterinarian, how to:

Choosing an English Bulldog Veterinarian





February 28, 2016

PLEASE choose your English Bulldog Veterinarian or French Bulldog Veterinarian with caution.

 I say this with love and kindness as I do not want to see more Bulldogs die at the hands of a Veterinarian. 

TOO many Bulldogs are dying during or after surgery due to the inexperience of the Veterinarian and or his staff.  

Here is a checklist that may help when you are choosing your Bully’s Vet.


IF you feel ODD about asking these questions to your VETERINARIAN, then JUST print this off and bring it in..  
Just hand them this article and ask them to Answer the Questions .. Especially Ruthann's Questions on the 2nd half of this article




Thanks to Big bulldog for these tips: 


Most all Vets will tell you that they are experienced with Bulldogs but sadly some of these poor Bulldogs have found this to be far from the truth.

1. Most importantly, ask the Vet what they use to sedate a Bulldog. If it is anything other than Propofol with Iso Fluorine gas and full intubation, MOVE ON.  (English Bulldogs and French Bulldogs are different than other dogs when it comes to anesthetizing.
Many Bulldogs die unnecessarily each year while under Anesthetic for simple procedures.) It is your responsibility to be certain that your Vet is qualified in the Bulldog Arena.  There are NEW drugs coming on the market that your Vet may discuss with you.   

2. Ask how many Bulldogs does the Vet anesthetize monthly.
If it is less than 10, MOVE ON.   YOU Want a Bulldog VET, you don't want a MOM & POP VET who may do 2-3 Bulldogs per month ... 

3. Does the Vet do his or her own surgeries/procedures  for the following;
Cherry Eye, Bladder Stones, Elongated Soft Pallet, Hernias (Inguinal & Umbilical), C-Sections, Progesterone Tests, Basic Knee Surgeries. These are just a few, but if he does not do the basics, then MOVE ON.

4. Does the Vet read and interpret his/ her own X-Rays or do they send them out to a Radiologist. If they cannot read and accurately interpret their own X-Rays, MOVE ON.

5. Does the facility appear clean and sanitary? If not MOVE ON.

Here are some tips from Ruthann Phillips, from GA English Bulldogs .

Ruthann Phillips stated:  "after 400 Bulldogs and 34 years in medicine, I've learned a lot. That 34 years in surgery has helped A LOT!  Too often we hear the excuse "expect anything with no explanation because it's a bulldog." That's not true. Good work ethic, knowing your limitations and genuinely caring about your patients/ clients goes a long way.

These are the questions you must ask:

1. How many Bulldogs do you treat in a week?

2. On induction of anesthesia, do you use ACE? If they say yes, get up and leave.

3. If it is a difficult intubation, do you have a tube small enough to intubate a puppy because Bulldogs are known to have hypoplastic trachea and once you've premeditated him you are not going to have time to fumble around finding a small tube?  Are you prepared?

4. If you find a large palate on intubation, are you prepared to perform that surgery at the end of the procedure? If not, what are your plans to save his/her life?

5. If my dog's palate is enlarged and he does survive the surgery, will you refer me to a reputable vet WHO CAN perform this procedure?

6. At the end of the procedure, do you immediately extubate or do you wait for my dog to wake up before you remove the tube? Extubating too early is a reason for vomiting, aspiration and frequently death.

7. When he is recovering, do you have a real person monitoring him constantly to assess breathing status and are you prepared to reintubate IMMEDIATELY if he begins to have respiratory distress?

8. If the dog has to be left overnight DO NOT use a vet who does not provide 24-hour tech care. They have to be in the kennel area monitoring the dogs. No remote monitoring. Be sure a tech is actually in the kennel, not in a room upstairs checking monitors. They have to be there, EYES ON the dogs.

9. Palate surgery: how many dogs have required a tracheostomy for swelling post operatively?







Thanks so Much Ruthann for this amazing list ~~~~~
