Pet Points

February 2020

Welcome to our 6th year of our monthly Pet Points newsletter. We sent out our first newsletter in February of 2015. Since then many new customers have walked through our door, including a lot of furry customers. We've come to know a lot of new dogs in the area, and have sadly said goodbye to some neighbourhood favorites. It is our hope that our newsletters have helped to inform you about many aspects of owning a pet, and this newsletter will be no different
 

The Benefits of Raw Goat Milk
Many of our customers have discovered the benefits of feeding their dog or cat raw goat milk. Raw goat milk is known as the universal milk, as it contains vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, trace elements, enzymes, protein, and fatty acids. We carry goat milk produced by Primal which comes from free-range goats raised without antibiotics or added hormones. All batches of raw goat milk are tested for pathogens prior to release for sale. Other ingredients added to milk are Dried Lactobacillus lactis fermentation product, Dried Lactobacillus acidophilus fermentation product, Dried Enterococcus faecium fermentation product, Inulin, Organic Turmeric (color), Organic Ginger, Organic Cinnamon.  You can see the benefits of these ingredients below.
Has your vet recommended surgery for your pet?
There are many things you need to consider when your veterinarian suggests surgery for your pet. There is quality of life, success rate, affordability and a number of other things you need to think about.  We found this great article by Dr. Karen Becker that may be able to help you with your decision.
BITTER APPLE TASTE DETERRENT FOR DOGS

Grannick's Bitter Apple was originally formulated to stop dogs from fur biting and chewing as well as aggravating hot spots. However, we recommend it not only to be applied topically but to put it on most things around the house your dog may be chewing on.  New puppies can be trained to stay away from many items that you spray with Bitter Apple. Some things you may not think of that you want to keep your puppy away from are remote controls, cell phones, wiring, shoes, and baseboards.  You can even spray it on your dog's leash.
No new puppy owner should be without it!
 
 
FUN FACT

Most people think cats have been domesticated longer than dogs, but that is not the case. Cats were first domesticated in the Near East about 10,000 years ago. Scientists generally agree that there is good evidence that dogs were domesticated around 15,000 years ago, however they do not agree where this originally took place.
