What Does The Great Dane Lady Use?

Pet owners ask me what other supplements or products do I use or recommend for specific issues. I also have my own line of holistic treats that are now available see below.

Dog Beds - I love the Kuranda Beds the best and so do the dogs. It gets them up off of the floor and you can put a fleece pad on it for extra cushion or in the winter, and in the summer they love the fact that the cool air circulates under them. I use them in the house and outside. Easy to clean, very sturdy and nothing to chew, in fact they come with a chew guarantee! When you contact Kuranda, tell them the Great Dane Lady sent you. They will donate 5% to the Warrior Canine Connection. My Pug, Collie and Sheltie love them too, and it really helps keep their coats from breaking off from laying out on the patio or gravel in the summer.

TOYS - No pig ears, cow hooves, raw hide of any kind, string toys, booda bones or cooked bones or Greenies -and absolutely no tennis balls. These are all things that can kill your dog.

Why No Rawhide?
First, the majority are processed with lye, something your dog does not need in his/her stomach. Also, they are not digestible and can lay in the stomach or intestines and not pass through, causing an obstruction or causing pathogenic bacteria to grow which equals BLOAT. We do not need to encourage bad bacteria in animals that are prone to bloat and gastric torsion. They are also a very serious choking hazard. So to be on the safe side, for nutritional and safety reasons, I will suggest something other than rawhide chewies.
Why No pig ears/snouts/cow snouts and cow hooves?

There are two reasons for not using these, Salmonella (bad bacteria) and the fact that the ears/snouts will splinter and can puncture an intestine and the same is for the cow hooves. Frequently, vets are removing them because they cause an obstruction.

NO - and I mean NO Greenies!! These things have killed dogs due to choking and they are full of gluten which causes dogs to have major skin problems and allergies. This is true of any chewable bone, check content Nylabones have a gluten product out that I will not suggest for the very same reasons. Big chunks break off and they can choke and they do not need that much starch in their system triggering a yeast infection.

KONG has a whole line of toys that works well and the "skinny" long fleece or fur toys with the squeeker in each end works very well. They dangle and the love to feel as if the just snagged a critter so the prance around the house with one of these skinny flat fur toys.
