Get Healthy & Fit with Your Pet

Long-eared dogs need to keep their ears dry to avoid yeast infections.
Health and fitness go hand-in-paw.

“Okay, I think I’m dry now.”



Keeping fit begins at a young age.  Playing is good for you and your puppy.

 “I’m gonna pounce you, Kong!”


We are happy to join our friends at BlogPaws for Wordless Wednesday.  January has been declared “Get Fit with Your Pet” month.  Resolve to keep you and your pet healthy and fit for 2015.

  2. Health IS fitness! Being healthy on the outside doesn't get you very far, it's always what is inside that counts. January is a great time to commit to getting fit but it takes real resolve to make it last until March and beyond! Resolve is easy for pets... hopefully more humans will be inspired by them!

  7. We get my ears all cleaned out once a month, I don't like it one bit, but it beats infections. I used to have chronic ear infections until we finally found an ear cleaner that works for me. Most of them made my problem worse. Love my floppys, but they sure are a lot of work aren't they Bentley?

  11. Bentley, you have fabulous ears! Mine need to get cleaned and dried more than others because I have allergies and they affect my ears sometimes. Happy Wednesday!

  12. I so agree with you, that ear infections are like evil gremlins and it needs 87 weeks or more to chase them away! Your ears are beautiful!

  13. We don't have any puppy ear problems but boy we did have chronic ear problems with our 3 year old. Ear tubes do the trick but ear infections are so painful, you do have to watch out!
