Tips of the week!

Alison’s Tip

When switching pet food to a different kind, gradually introduce the new food over a 1 to 2 week time period.  3/4 old food, 1/4 new food for 3 days; 1/2 old food, 1/2 new and old food for 3 days; 1/4 old food, 3/4 new food for 3 days; A sudden change to a new diet will cause a severe upset stomach.

Katie’s Tip

Tulips grow fast! After placing in a tall vase, use a sharp knife and cut a 1/8 vertical silt in the stem right at the throat (under the flower head.) This will help your tulips to not grow out of control! See you Wednesday!

Carrie’s Tip

The best at home remedy to keep your diamonds looking  shiny and new…liquid dishwasher detergent mixed with a little bit of warm water. Gently scrub clean with an old tooth brush.

  1. Hi Allison,
    Happy Passover & Happy Easter!
    We recently lost our Rat Terrier Skippy. Our pit bull Nelly has been depressed since.
    They were together 12 years.
    I have a hard time getting her to eat. We checked her out with our vet- ( our cousin Dr. Penny- Coral Springs pet resorrt) nothing physical.
    I have been putting a little Royal Canin appetite stimulation. On her dry food. It worked for a while. Now every meal is an afford…so sad.
    I am looking into a doggie daycare in Plantation where we live.
    We will get her a rescue friend this summer in Asheville. Any suggestions?
    Thank you

    1. Hi Linda- I am so sorry to hear of your loss. That is super hard on the family and I hear all the time about the other pets that grieve. I would suggest alot of extra attention and doggy daycare is a great idea. Lots of new toys, and extra stimulation and walks outside. Eating gets hard because once you start giving them new foods, and trying to get them to eat, they start falling into that pattern and knowing they are going to get “better” or something different. I would try and stay as close to her original diet as possible and try and make up for her sadness with other activities. Of course some treats and other things that are not associated with her meal times are fine. I hope this helps, and she will develop a new routine and start to feel better. A new rescue pup is a great idea. Make sure she meets her first in her environment to make sure they will get along. I am so sorry again for your loss and hope everyone is doing ok.
