American BioSciences DGP Review

American BioSciences DGP Review

American Biosciences DGP (Dog Gone Pain) supplement is for treating dogs with painful arthritis. It also can help maintain nervous system, gastrointestinal, skeletal and immune health. DGP can be used as a treatment or as a preventative measure from developing arthritis and other health problems.

American Biosciences DGP, contains in each tablet Shark Cartilage, which is a rich source of chondroitin sulfate and glycoaminoglycans. These substances play a structural role in joint and cartilage and have been shown in many studies to be very effective. Animals and humans have been using Chondroitin in joint supplements for years now because it works. Even my mother’s joint supplements have Chondroitin in it.

DGP also contains natural enzymes called Bromelain and Papain, which helps naturally digest protein. As dogs get older they have a tougher time digesting nutrients, especially protein. When I was on a high protein diet I used to take Bromelain to help me digest protein better and it definitely works. Bromelain also has a lot of anti-inflammatory symptoms and is used by some people just for helping arthritis problems. DGP also contains a few other anti-inflammatory herbs which can help with arthritis Feverfew, Celery Seed, Boswelia. Boswelia also works as a natural analgesic (pain reliever). They also added Corydalis Root for circulatory health and Cayenne for gastrointestinal health. Cayenne pepper also has other benefits like raising metabolism and good for circulatory health.

As you can see DGP contains all natural herbs, not only help a dog’s joint problems, but can help their overall health. You can buy American BioSciences DGP at OnlyNaturalPet.com, which is a store I recommend. There is also at least 18 reviews left by customers there on OnlyNaturalPet.com who have used DGP, most of which had very good results.



Do Animal Computer Chip Implants Cause Cancer?

I recently discovered that chip implants given to rats have been shown to cause malignant tumors in past studies. Chip implants are used in dogs and cats, so if they get lost, a vet can find the rightful owner. There were multiple veterinary and toxicology studies done in the 1990′s supporting evidence that these implants could actually cause dangerous malignant tumors. The FDA has approved the technology, despite this evidence. You may be shocked that the FDA would approve chip implants even for humans with this evidence. You have to realize that the FDA is very corrupt and they allow a lot of unsafe things in our food they shouldn’t. You can read more from a news article on it.

Now some of you dog owners will want to keep track of your dog, but are scared to use chimp implants in your pets after reading this post. The good news is there is a much better alternative to tracking your dogs anyways, called a GPS Dog tracking system. It’s a little box that attaches to the collar and tracks your dogs exact location. Many of the GPS devices for dogs look similiar to the picture below.

There are different types of Dog GPS tracking systems, but with most you pay a subscription per month for the service, usually around 10 dollars. The average GPS tracking system costs about 200 to 500 dollars. When your dog goes missing or leaves a certain pre-defined area than you will get alerted. With most of the GPS tracking system devices you can track the current location of your dog by one or all of the following ways; cellphone, email, internet, and pager.

The downside to these GPS tracking devices compared to the chip implants is that they usually require a monthly subscription and are expensive to buy. However, they are better than the regular chip implants because the implants won’t tell you the exact location of your dog like these GPS tracking devices. The chip implants are only useful when your dog is found by a vet and are checked by their chip reader. The chip implants are not a GPS tracking device. The chip implant only identifies who is their dog owner. The vet must use a chip reader to find out if a dog has a chip embedded in him and then it reads the contact information stored on the chip. A reasonable priced Dog GPS system is the PetSafe GPS Pet Locator sold at Amazon.com

FURminator Review

furminator review

Dog shedding can be a major pain. Using a regular comb or brush daily isn’t very efficient way to remove fur. If you want to remove a lot of fur very quickly from a dog, then the Furminator deShedding Tool for Dogs is what I recommend. I had previously used regular combs, brushes, and the Zoom Groom. I thought the Zoom Groom was pretty good brush compred to others, until I bought the Furminator. The Furminator does a much better job of getting rid of the undercoat fur. It gets rid of some of the topcoat, but mainly the undercoat which is responsible for a lot of the shedding. There is no sharp edge on the comb part of the blade, so it won’t hurt the dog. My dog never seemed in pain or uncomfortable and I didn’t find any redness or skin irritation on his skin. In fact he enjoyed it and wagged his tail when I would bring it out. Our dog shedded a lot less with it, when we used it regularly, so it works as advertised.

There is different blade sizes depending on your dog’s size (small,medium, or large). They also have Furminator models for cats. Make sure you use the Furminator on clean dry groomed fur. If the fur is all tangled or wet or dirty, you should go over it with a regular comb or something else first. You will have to replace the blades occasionally according the manafacturer, when it gets dull. I haven’t had to replace it after hundreds of uses, but maybe I’m having trouble figuring out when it’s dull. I recommend you buy the Furminator through EntirelyPets.com . They have a coupon code FURMSPECIAL15 available that allows you 15 dollars instantly off the Large and medium Furminator. They also have some videos demonstrating the use of the product.

Rapid Bath Review

Rapid Bath Review

The Rapid Bath System is a dog bathing system that recently has been advertising on T.V (official site to purchase it is at RapidBathing.com ). Many dog owners find giving a dog bath a hassle. Older people and those with carpal tunnel or arthritis conditions, have an especially hard time washing their dog thoroughly. It can be tough on your hands and aggravate your carpal tunnel or arthritis. RapidBath does five important things over a traditional dog bath; it makes bathing your dog much more faster, more convenient, less messy, it does a much better job, and it is easier to do and doesn’t require any straining work from your hands.

Rapid Bath can be attached to your showerhead or to a hose and used outside. RapidBath uses a technology called HydroSurge, which is the same patented technology seen by products used by vets, professional groomers, and kennel operators. Although the RapidBath system requires you use their proprietary shampoos in order for it to work, Rapid Bath shampoos are a higher quality shampoo. Most mainstream commercial shampoos strip away natural oils of the skin causing flaking and drying of the skin and are missing many important shampoo ingredients.

One downside to the Rapid Bath shampoos is they don’t have flea and tick control ingredients because the shampoo is highly concentrated, so it would be a health hazard to have it concentrated. However, you can still wash your dog with RapidBath then apply a flea tick shampoo and wash it again. Rapid Bath has a choice of 5 different proprietary dog shampoo formulas, including one for hypo-allergenic and an oatmeal soothing shampoo to help with dry itchy skin.

You can purchase Rapid Bath at Amazon.com at a cheaper price than if you bought it direct through the official manufacturer’s website. They also have a video on Amazon of a demonstration of the Rapid bath. Some of my readers and others on the net prefer the PetJet made by m2pets instead of the Rapid Bath. You can get the PetJet at Amazon.com

Vetri-Science Glyco-Flex Review

Vetri-Science Glyco-Flex Review

Vetri-Science Glyco-Flex is one of the top selling supplements at pet stores. Glyco-Flex is a supplement that prevents and helps treat joint problems in dogs. It comes in 3 different formulas, I, II, and III, based on the stage of the life of the dog and his current joint conditions. I have personally never used Glyco-Flex, but I have had good experiences with joint supplements on my dogs that used many of the same ingredients that are in Vetri-Science Glyco-Flex. The ingredients they use are proven to work and have been used for years in supplements treating joint problems for animals and humans.

Vetri-Science Glyco-Flex formula I contains Glucosamine, a patented ingredient called Dimethylglycine (DMG), and Perna canaliculus (Green-Lipped) Mussel. Glucosamine has been proven in many studies to help directly on joint problems. In fact Glucosamine converts in the body to the very compound that makes up joint cartilage. Formula I is designed for preventative and maintenance joint issues. Formula II packs more of a punch, it contains Glucosamine in higher dose than Formula I, but also MSM and Maganese are added. If you haven’t heard about MSM before, it helps relieve pain and plays other important roles in treating joint issues. Formula II is more advanced because it for dogs with; moderate joint dysfunction, older dogs, sporting and working breeds, as well as a follow-up to orthopedic surgery. Formula III contains Glucosamine MSM, DMG, at higher doses than Formula I and II. It also has a few other ingredients not added in Formula I and II. Formula III is for the most advanced Joint problems.

You can buy all 3 forms of Glyco-Flex at Only Natural Pet Store. There is also at least 15 reviews left by customers there on OnlyNaturalPet.com you can read. As you can see most people are reporting it to work very well on their dogs. Within a few weeks you should be seeing a difference in your dog. Glucosamine, which is one of the main ingredients, has been shown to usually takes 4 to 6 weeks to fully work.

Secrets to Dog Training Review

Secrets to Dog Training is the best selling dog behavior training program on the net. I’ve had the ebook for years and it’s helped solve a few behavior problems we had with our dog.

Secrets to Dog Training Program Overview

The main e-book of the Secrets to Dog Training program is almost 200 pages long. It is as comprehensive as it gets, with over 200 different chapters on different topics! The e-book is divided in major sections, first answering common questions for new dog owners. Then the rest of the book discusses common behavior problems and how to correct them, advanced command tricks, and dog health problems.

The author covers all the basic training and command topics plus other unique topics like; dog rivalries, how to stop your dog from eat his own poop, cat and car chasing, and family deaths, to name just a few. He also helps you with some unique training styles that I’m not familiar with using, dog whispering training technique and understanding your dog through facial and body expressions through the wolf instinct. There is so many different dog training styles out there its confusing to know who is right. Thankfully he helps clear that up by giving the pros and cons to various dog training techniques.

You will find the format of the Secrets to Dog Training e-book very easy to follow. It is written very clearly in simple terms, and there is many pictures that demonstrate the points. He also gives you the flexibility to use more than one training technique to solve problems. This is very useful because some dogs might not respond as well to certain styles of training. I found the flexibility in different techniques he offered, helpful for training my own dog effectively.

The Secrets to Dog Training package also gives you a few extra e-book bonuses for free. They give you the entire ebook in audio format. That way you can listen to the book read to you on a CD player or MP3 player. The 2nd and 3rd bonus e-books “A Quick Guide to Dog Aggression” and “All The House Training Methods & Tricks” go in more depth than the main book on answering these issues. The 4th bonus book “Dog Grooming Made Easy” covers tooth hygiene, nail clipping, fur grooming, and more. It’s the only dog training package I’ve come across that thoroughly discusses dog hygiene and grooming. The “Tips On Security Training Your Dog” book is for those who want to use their dog for security. I think the best bonus e-book given away is the “Secrets To Becoming The Alpha Dog”. This e-book uses the alpha pack leader system of training. If you are a fan of the Dog Whisperer T.V program with Cesar Milan, then you will appreciate the “pack leader” training style. Finally, you get special access to the forum community available only for members who buy Secrets to Dog Training.

Conclusion

Overall, Secrets to Dog Training is the most comprehensive dog training program I’ve read. Secrets to Dog Training only costs 39 dollars and it’s in e-book format, so you don’t have to pay for shipping and handling. I’ve seen many dog training programs cost much more than that and that’s not including the shipping charge. I can see why this is the best selling training program because it covers every problem I’ve actually had or could of possibly had with my dog. I found Secrets to Dog Training very effective and learned many things that I haven’t read about from other training programs. You won’t get bored reading this book because it’s such an easy read. Secrets to Dog Training has a 60 day money back guarantee, so there is no risk to you for trying it.

Dog Nail Trimming with a Dremel

Dog Nail Clipping with a Dremel

You or your husband might already own a type of Dremel power tool. Dremel makes rotary power tools that are used commercially to grind down things. Dremels also make great alternative dog nail clipping tools to the traditional dog clippers. This is because instead of cutting your dogs nails through clipping, which leads to pain, splintering, and bleeding, a Dremel painlessly grinds down the nails. Many dogs can’t stand regular nail clipping and for some dogs, it is so traumatizing they won’t let you do it. However, most dogs will get used to the Dremel over time. It might take them a while to not associate you using the dremel on their nails with their previous bad experiences with nail clippers.

There are about 3 different Dremel models that are commonly used to effectively grind your dog’s nails. Which one you pick depends on your dog’s size. Large dogs do best on the Variable Speed MultiPro, which has a range of 5000 to 35,000 RPMs. You will want to stay in the 5000 to 8000 RPM range because if it gets too fast your dog’s nail will get too hot and cause him pain. Do not get the cordless multipro dremel because the minimum RPM starts at 10,000 on that model. Dremel also has a Cordless Pet Nail Grooming Tool, specifically for dog nail grooming. That model has a range of 7000 to 14000. The cordless MiniMite model has a range of 6,500 to 10,000 RPMS. Both the Cordless Pet Nail Grooming Tool and the MiniMite model are ideal for the smaller dog breeds.

The Dremel is a nice dog nail clipping tool, but I and many other dog owners prefer another dog nail timmer called the Peticure. The Peticure works on a similiar rotary nail grinding action like the Dremel. The difference is that the Peticure can also catch flying debris and tends to be less of a rough grind. You can only buy the Peticure through their official website. You don’t need to go out and buy a Peticure to have the abilitiy to catch nail debris because the Peticure site sales a Peticure Safe Guard. This accessory can be attached on certain Dremel models. You can read more about my experience using the Peticure in my previous Peticure review post.

You can buy at Amazon.com the Dremel 395 MultiPro for large dogs. For small dogs you want either the Dremel Minimite Cordless or the Dremel 761-03 Cordless.

Flexpet Review

Flexpet is a natural supplement to help relieve arthritis and hip dysplasia in dogs and other pets. It is made by a company called Flexcin International, Inc. I recently adopted a older dog, named Otto, from a senior citizen neighbor who couldn’t take care of her dog anymore. He seemed to have some problems of arthritis and hip dysplasia, like my previous dog Rex. I ordered a couple bottles of FlexPet at Flexpet.com.

I tried it for a few months and it didn’t seem to be working that well. It worked a little I think but I thought I would try another product. I then bought some Cosequin and gave it to our dog for a few weeks and it seemed to have worked this time. Our dog had a lot easier time getting up and playing. He seems a lot less pain. I recommend cosequin as the supplement to first try now if your dog or pet has arthritis.

ThePerfectDog.com Review

I recently started seeing a T.V commercial for Don Sullivan’s The Perfect Dog: Secrets to Training the Perfect Dog. The official site is at ThePerfectDog.com or Thane.com. He also calls himself the “The Dog Father”. I admit I was a bit skeptical at first, but they had a 30 day moneyback guarantee, so I thought I would try it out.

The PerfectDog.com package comes with 2 training DVDs, Don Sullivan’s personally trademarked collar the Command Collar, and his Freedom Training Lines leashes. Don Sullivan also sales some other products at theperfectdog.com , but they aren’t included in the 60 dollar package. His 2 DVDs covers many topics, but not with enough depth I thought. There were a few helpful things in the DVDs, but most of it was just basic techniques or things I’m not sure are even the best approach to dog training. I have serious reservations about his training philosophy. He doesn’t believe in using dog treats and rewarding your dog. I don’t know where this idea came from because I and many other dog owners have had success training our dogs using treats. Dogs should be rewarded for knowing that they are doing a job well done. Another thing I don’t like about the perfect dog package is there is no book that comes along with the DVDs. It would be nice to be able to at any time sit down and look up something, without the huge hassle of having to load up your computer or DVD player and search for it.

Overall, The perfect dog system is a bit of a disappointment so I can’t give it a good review. I would recommend you just save your $60 dollars if you are thinking of buying it. I don’t think it was really worth the price. Instead I recommend a much more effective and cheaper training guide from the popular Secrets to Dog Training e-book guide. I’ve had the Secrets to Dog training book for a while and found it very helpful. I’ve never really seen any negative reviews with it like I do all the time with The perfect Dog system.

Pet Zoom Nail Groom Review

The Pet Zoom Nail Groom just recently started advertising on T.V. You can only buy the Pet Zoom Nail Groom through their website at Petzoomnailgroom.com. Pet Zoom also has other pet grooming products on the market. The Pet Zoom Nail Groom is supposed to gently and painlessly file down a dog and cat’s nails. I purchased one to see how well it works.

The Pet Zoom Nail Groom appears to be a direct competitor to another nail grooming product advertised in T.V that I bought in the same price range called the PediPaws. You can read my previous PediPaws Review. Like the Pedipaws, I found it wasn’t really adequate. You really get what you pay for only 20 dollars, which is a underpowered engine. When trimming a large dog it is difficult to cut the dogs nails. I didn’t try it on a smaller dog breed, but I don’t think it would do that well with a smaller dog either. They give you their Pet Zoom comb and cut as a bonus for free, but if you are looking for a serious dog nail trimmer that’s built to last, you should instead get the Dremel or Peticure.

You can purchase the Pet Zoom Nail Groom at EntirelyPets.com at a cheaper price than if you bought it directly from the manufacturer’s website.
