February is Pet Dental Month

PetDentalHealth    February Is National Pet Dental Health Month. … According to the American Veterinary Dental Society (AVDS), 80% of dogs and 70% of cats will develop some form of oral disease by the age of three. Not addressing your pet’s dental health could lead to more severe secondary diseases like heart or kidney disease.

February is almost over, so check your furry family members teeth and make sure they do not have medium to dark coloring on any of their teeth.  If so, please schedule a follow-up appointment with your vet’s clinic.

The Diabetic Dog Bakery suggests that you give your furry family member snacks/treats that build strong teeth, instead of harming their teeth with foods that stick to the teeth surfaces.  Some snacks/treats to use are human-grade and limited ingredients in each treat bag.

Cucumbers are perfectly safe for dogs to eat, and offer a low-calorie, crunchy snack that many dogs love. Cucumbers only contain about 8 calories per one-half cup of slices, compared to the 40 calories in a single medium Milk Bone biscuit, and are very low in sodium and fat. More information here.

Once the plaque is under control, you can maintain your dog’s teeth by brushing them with coconut oil, using a soft baby toothbrush

Adding roughly half a teaspoon of raw organic apple cider vinegar to your dog’s water bowl can help freshen up breath

Incredible New All-In-One Dog Leash

Do I have you curiosity raised about what kind of new dog leash I am talking about?

Well, while we are snowbirding this year on the NC Coast and walking on the sand, we met a man named Art Ingram and his well-behaved dog Soffie.  As we talked, Art mentioned his new patented all-in-one dog leash.  He showed us how to install it on Soffie and it was a great idea.  I took his business card so that I could look up his website and told him that I would pass it along to my dog friends online.

He talked about several large orders from the Veterinarians Without Borders organization that works well with traveling vets that need a collar or vest with a leash.  His MyOneLeash is exactly what they need in traveling around the World and helping animals.

Instead of me trying to explain how it works, I am placing his website link to My One Leash.

Please check his dog product out and ask him any questions you might have.  He has been very busy keeping up with all the orders and the DiabeticDogBakery.com believes he has a fantastic product that can assist dog families with a combination leash and collar/vest with dog behavior on walks.

$6.29 Bones and Bones Dog Treats – One Week ONLY

Hurry and order your Bones and Bones dog treats for your special 4-legged family member(s).

Bones and Bones diabetic-friendly dog treats are made with organic applesauce and GF organic flours. Apples are not bad for dogs as long as the core and seeds are removed.  Besides being tasty apples, applesauce or apple slices are a good low protein, high fiber, antioxidant snacks for our doggy friends.  In addition, apples contain vitamins A and C with dietary fiber.

Some senior dogs or dogs prone to certain illnesses must limit their meaty treats due to protein restrictions or even stick to a very low fat diet.  Apples are low in protein and fat so it makes a suitable treat substitute for these dogs.

Of course, the benefits of eating apples or applesauce are not just for aging dogs with health issues but also for young or active dogs that can benefit from eating apples with antioxidants, vitamins C, vitamin A and dietary fiber.  Some vets think that apples can help with conditions like gastrointestinal health and degenerative conditions like joint disease.

WARNING: A Vet Issues a Warning on a Toy Bone

KEARNEY, Mo. — A Kansas City, MO metro veterinarian is issuing a warning.

That vet had to remove a chew toy from a dog’s mouth. The vet said he needed a bone saw to remove the nylon toy bone, and if he hadn’t, the dog might have died.

The flexible toy, which is made by a company called Lumabone, had gotten wedged in dog’s mouth in late July 2019. Walsh said the dog couldn’t close his mouth, and his tongue was stuck in the back of his throat. The two-year old dog was having trouble breathing.

A Facebook search produced several posts where other owners complained about the same thing happening to their dogs.

More information can be gained in the entire news article on the Fox4KC website in Kansas City, MO.

Questions can be sent to the Lumabone business email:    info@lumabone.com
