Scully Recommends This For Ear Infections in Dogs and Cats

Having such magnificent ears, you can well imagine our boy Scully has had some ear infections during his lifetime.

I brought Scully home from the shelter in November of 1999. The vet who had checked him out missed an ear infection. Since he was my first dog, I didn't know what to look for and finally realized he needed to go the vet- a different one. The inside of his ears were deep pink and he never complained. The new vet was horrified and couldn't believe how gentle Scully was with such a terrible ear infection and that he definitely had when he came from the shelter. His ears were impacted and it broke my heart to have to clean his ears with a liquid solution and a Q-Tip and then try to drop antibiotics into his painful ears. He was wonderful!

When another ear infection occurred, we went to a new vet, as we had moved...and again he had liquid antibiotics and that ear cleanse stuff...but this time the ear infection wouldn't go away. It took much longer and he went through more pain. Those things hurt!!

I found an herbal product called Ears Alright by Ark Naturals that keeps the ear clean and works better than antibiotics! I am not saying it cures ear infections in any way. Through personal use on Scully, Dovi and Whiskers, their ear infections have cleared up and through regular preventative use, they have had very few ear infections.

We sent some to South America and Texas...both for dogs who had painful ear infections and antibiotics didn't help. One of the dogs was in pain for three weeks before he had the Ears Alright.

I am not a vendor for this product, though I wish I could be. I swear by it and trust my animals' ear health to it. You can see the relief in their eyes usually after the second time you administer it. It's a liquid and you just place some drops into the infected ear canal, making sure it goes all the way in. Call around different pet stores to see if they carry it. I drive 20 miles to get it from a store in Cranston, RI. It costs around $20 in-store so try to get it on-line, if you can. Obviously, if your animal companion is in pain, drive to get it and pay the extra few dollars and get it in the ear, right away...

Your pet will thank you.

Scully, Dovi and Whiskers highly recommend it and give it the Paw of Approval!

Take Time To Play!

If there is one thing I have learned from Scully and Dovi, it's take time to play.

Life is always busy if we let it be. We can always find something to occupy our time with. Watching them and being in their presence always helps me forget what's going on in my life. They really live in the moment and enjoy the chance to get a belly rub or play "Catch the Food." They seize every opportunity to give me a kiss or extend a paw in "hug" from them.

I wonder how often we say "I love you.." When our spouse or kids go out the door, do we tell them we love them? Do we hug them often and with real feeling or it a quick hug...a quick kiss while we're thinking about everything we have to do when they go out the door. we rush through our walks with our dogs? Do we rush them because we want to do something else and they're taking too long smelling a bush or a leaf? Do we tug on the leash and tell them to hurry up..let's go?

I think it's time to be in the moment...with them...with each other...with ourselves.

Please take a look at this wonderful organization called Save a Sato. I've written about them before but it's time to bring them to the forefront again. Just click on the banner...
Thank you from the Satos, Scully, Dovi and Me ^..^ '

What's In Your Pet Food?

There's so much info these days about reading labels before purchasing food...but what about the labels on your dog or cat food?

To learn about the truth of what's in your pet food, we also suggest PetsumerReport Petsumer Report is a online pet food information publication developed and compiled by Susan Thixton.

For now love them every second and don't take them for granted. You and your love and attention are all they have.

Ask A Vet!

Well, we've all had a pretty uneventful six months since my last post, except for two weeks ago when Dovi was diagnosed with Lyme Disease a-GAIN!

We went to an excellent emergency veterinary hospital right on Rt. 6 in Swansea,MA

Bay State Veterinary Emergency Services
76 Baptist Street
Swansea, MA 02777-3318
(508) 379-1233

The vet was excellent and it was a clean facility, very calming for Dovi, who is always a wreck when he goes to the vet. Dovi and I highly recommend it!
