Cocker Spaniels/Followup on bella


QUESTION: I didn't understand your last follow-up comment. What did you mean fill up the bathtub for three days? Also did you look at the pictures of Bella's tummy? Thank you.

ANSWER: If you have a guest bathtub that isn't in use - leaving it full of water & vinegar will save you from having to fill it up again.  Or buy a kiddy pool or some large "container" that you can use outside.

Yes, I saw Bella's tummy.  It's a typical "rash".  Hopefully you've started the Zyrtec and the soaks.

One tablet per day.

Half water/half vinegar to clean ears.

When cleaning ears - be sure not to put tip of applicator down the ear canal...keep it slightly above the opening.  Is she scratching her ears?

Health, nutrition, training. Please note: I used to highly recommend Innova products but, unfortunately, as with Canidae, they have sold out to Proctor & Gamble. This guarantees lower quality to a dangerous point so I will no longer be advising anyone to buy it.
