How to keep dog’s breath fresh… *hint: with food*

June 4, 2008

There are many ways to keep your dog’s breath smelling fresh, one of which is to give them teeth cleaning treats – especially if you are a big lazy bum like me.

Some treats that i give them to keep them smiling and shiny:

I have been using this treat as my preferred choice of dog treat for some time. The good thing about it is its wheat free formula. Apparently many dog are allergic to wheat… plus It is not too expensive and my doggies love it! – It also keeps them busy for good few minutes.

*Bamm Bamm at the side while i was taking the shot*

This is the other brand of vege breath control treat i use while training my doggies. It is really popular with my pom, goldie and labbie, but the new huskies are not too excited about it. The other good thing about this treat is the “Urine Odor Control” formula… my garden don’t smell so much of their pee after using this treat.

*Cocoa love this brand, most of their treat smells sweet and yummy… like her!*

Greenies are also a popular dog treat at home. ALL of them love it. I give them Greenies to chew like once a week and alternate with rawhide bones. I heard from my dog food supplier rawhide also helps to clean their teeth.

*I keep them in a little airtight bucket for my easy access*

*But the pups are no fools*

*Keep the dog treats in a proper place where only u (not the dogs) have access to it! Another tip is to keep all treats in a air tight container cos it keep their food fresh and tasty.*

*All the doggies know it is doggie treat time when i open the drawer*

*… and they wont do practically anything to get the treat!*

Going Goo Goo Gaa Gaa over dog food

May 10, 2008

Cocoa, my Golden Retriever, refuses to eat her food recently. Guess she is under TREMENDOUS stress with the new addition of 2 new friends, Troy and Hugo:

Feeling guilty for causing her the unnecessary stress I decided to go pet food shopping AGAIN. She has always been a picky eater, unlike my Old Man Labrador, Bamm Bamm: for the past 13 years, never once missed his meal.

As for Cocoa’s “condition”, I went to my lovely animal enthusiast, Johnson at Ericsson Pet Farm:

I bought both Troy and Hugo from him at Ericsson, and previously my friend Jonathon also got a Westie there.

Johnson gave me some food samples for my doggies, Embark and Force from Honest Kitchen, which Cocoa previously gobbled down within 5 minutes.

Honest Kitchen is really good! I was looking at the content and the food itself, I was amazed! Cos, I could really see what was inside the dogfood, versus the usual kibbles dry food.

Upon googling… i found its blog! – Which i feel is informative.

So this is what i got:

I think I look happier then them… haha~ so glad that i found something good for my dogs – They deserve the best…. though it is expensive ah!

Look at what the food promises:

“We use 100% organic grains, hormone/ antibiotic-free meats and non-GMO produce. All ingredients are guaranteed 100% Human Food Grade.”

I think we are both happy…

Oh and i got this really nice Canisters that came with the food to maintain freshness!

She likes it too… yum: Bamm Bamm is attacking it too!
