Testing Teddy's Pride - Oral Care



Does your dog suffer from bad breath, not just in the mornings... but all day long? So does mine...

I've been told that small breed dogs, like my Maltese, are prone to have bad teeth and more likely to have more tartar / plaque build up leading to tooth decay and gum disease, which can ultimately enter the dog's blood stream through their gums and affect other parts of the body. Scary stuff huh?

It's hard not to notice Amie's bad breath when I hold her close for a hug, or when she licks my nose with kisses. What's worse is when people around me are noticing it and commenting about it too.

I've known she had an oral hygiene problem from a young age and have attempted to use all the remedies on the market that I could find including brushing her teeth manually, but found this difficult due to the size of her tiny mouth. I'll admit, I have looked for quick fix solutions to clean Amie's teeth, and resorted to sprays and gels such as "PetzLife Oral Care Spray", a menthol spray that I used to spray directly on her teeth and "Oxyfresh Pet Gel" which my vet recommended, which is a gel-like substance that I would rub directly on her gums.

Of course, her teeth seemed only to get progressively worse with age.

Finally, my sister handed me a bottle of "Teddy's Pride - Oral Care", she said it was a powder that I was to sprinkle on Amie's food once a day and to give it a try. Now, my first thought was that I didn't feel comfortable sprinkling just anything on Amie's food. So of course, I did my research on this product to make sure it was safe for her to consume and sure enough, everything I am reading about this product seems to have nothing but beneficial effects.

At the end of the day, what I learned is that this product uses the science of Probiotics, or good bacteria, to help combat the bad bacteria in the mouth. I'm sure most of us have already heard of Probiotics as it is commonly marketed in many food products such as yogurt to maintain healthy digestion in our stomachs.

The active ingredient in "Teddy's Pride - Oral Care" is ProBiora3™, a custom blend of 3 good bacterias to help support gum and tooth health.

I have been sprinkling "Teddy's Pride - Oral Care" on Amie's food once a day for the past 2 weeks and have found that her breath is becoming more and more tolerable. While she has noticed that her breakfast looks a little different in the mornings, I don't think she is bothered by the additional white stuff, as the powder is odourless and tasteless.

I plan to continue to use "Teddy's Pride - Oral Care" and will continue to monitor any changes in her mouth and to her general health. For the time being, I am happy and satisfied with this product and would recommend it to my fellow pet owners who are looking for a healthy, safe, and effective remedy to their stinky pet's breath.

FouFou Dog Lends a Helping Hand!



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Toronto, ON., May 14, 2010 – FouFou Dog, an innovative wholesale company that specializes in dog apparel, accessories, private labeling, and product displays, lends a helping hand to save the remaining animals that have been affected by the saddening ordeal at York Region OSPCA.

FouFou Dog had solemnly removed itself as a major sponsor for Ontario SPCA (Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) earlier this week due to the unforeseen events that occurred. Though FouFou Dog does not condone animal euthanasia, there is still much help required for the remaining surviving animals at the shelter.

It is now the time to focus on the safety of the remaining animals, to ensure that they are being well taken care of. It has been publicized that many of the shelter animals are being housed by foster parents. There is an immediate need for supplies to help out the foster homes. Whether it is food, towels, blankets, beds, litter boxes, or scratching posts, every little bit goes a long way for these innocent animals. This is the time to be proactive and take a stance to help alleviate further pain.

FouFou Dog has agreed to step up to the plate and put one paw forward in helping to assist and foster the recovery of those remaining animals that have been diagnosed for a full recovery. While the past cannot be undone, the future is ours to hold and FouFou Dog chooses to shift from the sadness of this turn of events and direct their emotions towards the more important issue at hand of helping to save the lives of the remaining innocent animals and to make their recovery a more comfortable one.

FouFou Dog Does Not Support OSPCA's Actions!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Toronto, ON., May 12, 2010 – FouFou Dog, an innovative wholesale company that specializes in dog apparel, accessories, private labeling, and product displays, has solemnly removed itself as a major sponsor for Ontario SPCA (Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). FouFou Dog has chosen to terminate their sponsorship with OSPCA due to the recent actions of the organization.

FouFou Dog apologizes for any turmoil that this partnership has caused to their community and their affiliates. FouFou Dog is in full support of the prevention of cruelty to animals, but absolutely does not condone animal euthanasia.

“Our hearts go out to all the animals harmed in this unfortunate situation. We are saddened by the outcome of the actions posed by the OSPCA, we do not condone the choice of euthanasia to animals with a sickness or disease that CAN be cured”, says Cheryl, CEO and Founder of FouFou Dog.

OSPCA’s mission is to facilitate and provide for province-wide leadership on matters relating to the prevention of cruelty to animals and the promotion of animal welfare. OSPCA’s lack of responsibility and the tardiness of protocols that were not followed has led to a magnitude of issues that FouFou Dog does not support. This issue has become an emotional one for many people and we can only hope that there will be a more positive outcome.

Poochy Pouches

Pampered puppies were made for the new FouFou Dog Poochy Pouches!!



You might feel like a kangaroo, but who cares.. look how cute Gaga, the Shih-Tzu puppy, looks as she sits safely and comfortably in FouFou Dog's new Poochy Pouch!

Available in two sizes, small and medium, to support your pampered pup weighing up to 16 lbs, its adjustable criss-cross straps reduce the pressure from the weight of your pooch to prevent back strain while allowing hands-free access to go about your day with your pooch by your side, or rather, by your belly.

The coolest feature of this poochy pouch is the fact that it zips up into a small, transportable waist pouch when you're not using it.

This next best thing is available June 2010 in White, Grey, and Black and can be purchased directly from FouFou Dog's new online store at www.foufoudog.com
