anyone can recommend other groomers that can do a good westie cut?
also, my Sparky likes to lick his hind legs a lot...lick until not on discoloration happens but no hair growing on the inside of his hind legs. we've seen the vet and tested him for fungus and other things but all negative. the food he has been eating is Royal Canin and he's eaten it his whole life so it can't really be a food allergy. anyone knows what could be going on?
Sorry to chip in. I know this post has been on a long time but I don't log in often and just read it. Royal Canin really is not the best food around. It does have ingredients that is the main cause of allergy in dogs. If I am not mistaken, one of the main ingredient is corn. A lot of dogs are allergic to corn and grains even. My Yorkie has mild allergy to oatmeal and if he ate oatmeal, he licks his paw and itch. Food allergy can happen later on in life when a dog is older or when their immune system is weaker than usual due to different reasons (i.e. stress, change of environment) so you may want to try to eliminate different foods in your dog's diet to find out. Some dogs are allergic to certain proteins which makes it very hard to find out which is the culprit but I know a lot of Yorkie owners who has ditched out Royal Canin due to their dogs being allergic and the main allergen was corn so it may be an easy shot for you. I know they are different breeds and I may be wrong but no harm in trying. You may save some serious money in the long run at the vets. potter
I am looking for the coconut based shampoo / organic based shampoo for my westie and matese... they have brown stain near the muzzle and paws area.... have checked with vet, no skin problems. Also dont intend to feed them the powder called WhiteShine (correct me if I am wrong) ... as I am unsure what is the contents.
I have 1 shihtzu mixed australian silky terrier, 2 malteses and a westie - all on Addiction/Origens and grooming at Pet Safari... in between touch ups by YeeLee a freelance groomer.... Vets are Dr Hasnul (Kota Damansara), Lai Chong (Hands and Paws) and Dr Wong (Small aminals clinic, Puteri Puchong). All stay at indoors and sleeps in the room with me.
Just curious how some white doggies can be so white... :P Pls advise.
DO focus on your studies and finish the paper... you will have ample of time to work.... when you work it's without semester holidays, only annual leaves (subject to your superior's approval) and looking forward to public holidays each time you get a new calendr... you will get to work until you are 55... why so kan cheong?
dont hurry... just focus on your studies and finish what you have started. : )
OK! All the best for the exams. Meanwhile time flies very quick... good luck in your exams... and come for the doggie events after your exams... I am sure there are more... we can keep in touch. I have another westie owner friend in Ampang KL.
hi guys, i have a westie approx 2 yrs old but having very serious skin problem. she scratches non stop till the extend it starts to bleed.and very often she chews her paws till it becomes very red. her skins are flaky.been going in n out few vets in selangor area, especially UPM vet hospital, been prescribed anti histamine and steroids. but i was told in the long run it will not do good to my westie. i tried various diet to see whether she's allergic to any of them but that was ruled out. and also been reading a little and i was told giving her evening prime rose oil will help , been doing so for the past 2 weeks but there's little improvement. so would like to ask any owners here experiencing or experienced the same problem as mine.
