I’m all for convenience, but at least be upfront with us so that we can make better decisions.

Comment on A Warning About Using Baby Wipes on our Dogs #DermaPet by Miss Cellany http://www.keepthetailwagging.com/baby-wipes-dogs/#comment-25596 Fri, 24 Jul 2015 19:57:39 +0000 http://www.keepthetailwagging.com/?p=12450#comment-25596 So this propylene glycol…. it’s toxic… and we put it on babies? No one see a problem with that? Because every baby I’ve seen puts their hands and feet in their mouths, and hands and feet, and even mouths are often wiped with baby wipes…

So babies are ingesting this propylene glycol too… Well there goes my last drop of trust in baby product manufacturers… After I found out they put formaldehyde in baby shampoo (actually it’s more of a contaminant but it’s almost always present) I thought there would be no more surprises, but I guess I was wrong.

Comment on Salmon Oil or Pollock Oil for Dogs? by Kimberly http://www.keepthetailwagging.com/salmon-oil-or-pollock-oil-for-dogs/#comment-25595 Fri, 24 Jul 2015 17:39:12 +0000 http://www.keepthetailwagging.com/?p=13975#comment-25595 That really blows. I haven’t had this experience with any of the fish oils. Are you sure it’s not his anal glands? When they’re impacted, it tends to smell fishy. I had this experience with Rodrigo – he could clear a room. Once they were expressed, the smell was immediately gone.

Comment on Salmon Oil or Pollock Oil for Dogs? by rosanne http://www.keepthetailwagging.com/salmon-oil-or-pollock-oil-for-dogs/#comment-25594 Fri, 24 Jul 2015 17:35:39 +0000 http://www.keepthetailwagging.com/?p=13975#comment-25594 Funny you mentioned that your male dog smells bad from the fish oil based products. I have been giving my dogs Pollock Oil for about three months now and he smells so bad it s tough to be in the same room. Thought I was giving him too much but I am just going to stop it all together. Do the other things have the same effect ?

Comment on My Very Biased Thoughts on the Purina-Merrick Acquisition by Kimberly http://www.keepthetailwagging.com/my-very-biased-thoughts-on-the-purina-merrick-acquisition/#comment-25593 Fri, 24 Jul 2015 13:31:33 +0000 http://www.keepthetailwagging.com/?p=17788#comment-25593 That’ll be interested to see. I’ve also wondered if having Merrick under their roof will make their other brands seem better quality to their fans so they won’t need to switch. I guess we’ll see :)

Comment on 12 Benefits of Turmeric for Dogs and More by Kimberly http://www.keepthetailwagging.com/a-dog-supplement-turmeric/#comment-25588 Fri, 24 Jul 2015 07:00:15 +0000 http://www.keepthetailwagging.com/?p=15472#comment-25588 I’m so sorry, Stephanie. I’ll be interested to hear how your dog does with the turmeric. Will you please send me an email in a few weeks with an update? Are you using powder or paste? Are you adding it to your dogs’ food or giving the turmeric to your dog separately? I have a friend who mixes up the paste, puts it into ice cube trades then gives it to her dog that way.

Thanks for tolerating my questions. There’s still so much to learn.

He is eight years old. Currently he is on large doses of steroids, however, my vet advised me to try the treatment as turmeric is very good for dogs. I am starting the treatment today and I will see how it goes. He goes for blood tests every two weeks to monitor his red blood cell count. If the alternative works I’ll be very happy as the continual use of steroids has horrific side effects which I am seeing already. Excessive urination, thirst, uncontrollable hunger and the worst is the weight loss.
