Tick, Flea Medication

I haven’t used anything for ticks until today, I have been very lucky!    My vet, Eric CARNEGY has dogs and takes them into the woods very frequently. He uses Bravecto every three months.  Even though I’m afraid of the medication, I’m more afraid of ticks and the many diseases they can carry.  Puck, Lu and Dex got Bravecto today, at least I don’t have to worry about ticks during this hunting season, one chewable pill lasts for three months! 


Jaxx goose hunting

Hi there Jaxx is doing great with the goose hunting. Running down and retreives cripples like a pro. Heading to Alberta in a couple of weeks so that should be a real workout for her.

Max update

Well.... Hello!

Max is doing good now. We have had a few challenges with Max and continue to a bit. His food allergies are now under control. We finally found a vet that has helped us tremendously. Dr Little, who is just down the street from you guys has been his savior. She practices herbal medicine. It has certainly helped Max. His food allergies was causing his fur to fall out around his eyes. So much that he looked like he had a grey mask around his eyes. He had severe skin allergies due to the allergies and was peeing uncontrollable in his sleep. We had a saliva test done, this is a new method on how to determine allergies on dogs. He was pretty much allergic to everything!...... Milk, wheat, chicken, fish, venison, pork, and the list goes on! It can only test things that he has become in contact with...... So needless to say,..... His diet is pretty strict. I make all of his food and it consist of beef... luckily not sweets potato, turnip, and carrots. 

I have taken Maggey off the dry kibble food as well. So..... I spend a lot of time making their food! But.... They are worth it! He also has an issue with his eyes. More so with the left. He has hazy spots on them. His sight doesn't seem to be affected. We haven't really got into that problem too much yet. We are focusing right now on getting his diet under control. He is our precious boy! We are so lucky to have him!... Most days! is so affectionate, loves snuggling, always has to be with us. Some days that is a challenge! Here are some recent pis of summer. It sure was a great one! Hope all is great with you guys!

Willow update

Hey Don, 

Hope all is well.  Just a quick update on Willow and her very busy summer.  She is just over 10 mths old and is weighing in at about 59 lbs – very lean but in great shape.  We have a hard time keeping her weight on as she is SOOOOO active!  2 long walks daily, usually a swim in the river and lots of play.  She loves basketball and has destroyed 3 already….she also loves her “chuckit” and tracks the ball down with ease.  We spent time at a cottage in PEI this summer and I believe she would move to the beach if she had the chance.  We met a chocolate lab named “Jack” in a neighboring cottage, he was a 2 yr old boy and weighed about 95lbs!  Willow was not impressed with him at all! I have attached a few pictures of Willow on the beach and relaxing afterwards. 

All the best, John
