THE LINK BETWEEN OUR LAWNS, OUR PETS🐾, CANCER🔥 AND US

A caution this spring🌳🪳: Treating your lawn with yard chemicals☠️, allowing your pet to eat or play on grass that’s been sprayed💦, or walking your pet on golf courses⛳️ can negatively affect our dog’s health, according to several studies. In fact, it can impact your entire family, as pets can bring those chemicals back inside!

Several studies show: dogs exposed (through laying, playing, ingesting or inhalation) to treated lawns has been associated with a significantly higher bladder cancer risk, and dogs whose owners reported use of professionally applied lawn pesticides were 70 PERCENT more likely to have lymphoma (cancer). In fact, there was an even higher risk of lymphoma if owners used self-applied insect growth regulators on their yards to control cockroaches, fleas, and other pests!🐜

Our book The Forever Dog focuses on how to raise the healthiest, happiest, long-lived dogs, and in it we teach you how to evaluate your dog’s indoor and outdoor environmental chemical exposure⚠️. In the section of the book titled Environmental Impact: The Body Burden, where we offer you tips like:
• Safer lawn-care options
• DIY non-toxic w**d killer recipes
• Home Chemical Exposure Pet checklist
• Forever Dog Foot Soak Recipe
• Supplements that support chemical clearance

Even if you don’t buy lawn chemicals, it doesn’t mean your dog isn’t being exposed. Home foot soaks after walks in parks and public spaces can go a long way in reducing your dog’s chemical exposure.🐾 You can find more information in our book as well as additional resources on our website

TITER FIRST! 💉

We all want our pets🐶🐱 protected from life threatening diseases, but did you know your pet may be carrying enough protection from their puppy and kitten shots to last a lifetime?! (Just like your childhood immunizations).

Your pets may not need to be “boosted” at all, and giving more shots to an already-immunized animal is not only a waste of money, but in worst case scenarios, may cause serious immune issues of all types. This is where a titer test comes in!🔬

A titer is a simple blood test that provides information about your pet’s current immunity to the diseases he’s been immunized against in the past.🧫 Titer testing instead of automatic boosters (except when required by law) can help lower your pet’s chemical (antigen) load by providing only what is needed to maintain an alert immune system.

It is not surprising all of the Forever Dogs we met had modified shot schedules!🤩 You can read more about titers and other ways to reduce and detox your dog's chemical load in our book The Forever Dog. We also cover the questions you should be asking a prospective breeder regarding the puppy’s and mom’s immunization protocol!

What type of dog water bowl do you use? 🐶💧

The dog water bowl has previously been identified as the third most contaminated🦠 item within the household and can be a breeding ground for dangerous germs & life-threatening bacteria🧫 that can put the entire house at risk, researchers at University Centre Hartpury have revealed.

So, which dish is best to use for a dog water bowl? The bowl that grows the least amount of life-threatening bacteria!

In the first study of its’ kind, Hartpury scientists found stainless steel grew the least amount of bacteria and over time, plastic bowls grew the highest amount, but the shocking part was the most harmful bacterial species (including salmonella, E. coli and MRSA) were most frequently identified in CERAMIC bowls!
Lead can also be a problem when using ceramic bowls, and the endocrine disrupting chemicals found in plastic bowls are a no-go! Also be aware plastic bowls🥣 can cause Plastic Dish Nasal Dermatitis🙀: Chemicals in plastic absorb through the skin and inhibit the synthesis of melanin, leaving the nose👃🏼 and adjacent areas with pink blotches.

So stainless steel🍴 bowls are the safest, right?

Well not so fast…. there’s even been recalls on stainless bowls😫. In our book The Forever Dog, in the chapter titled Environmental Impact and the section labelled “Toxic Toys, Chews, and Beds", we cover how to choose the best chemical-free bowls🚫 that won’t leach contaminants over time.

I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying...you found it hard to sleep.
I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear.
"It's me, I haven't left you...I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."
I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea.
You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to me.
I was with you at the shops today, your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.
I was with you at my grave today, you tend it with such care.
I want to reassure you that I am not lying there.
I walked with you toward the house, as you fumbled for your key,
I gently put my paw on you. I smiled and said, "It's me."
You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know that I was standing there.
It's possible for me to be so near you every day.
To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."
You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew...
In the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.
The day is over...I smile and watch you yawning
And say, "Goodnight, God bless, I'll see you in the morning."
And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I'll rush across to greet you and we will stand, side-by-side.
I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.
Be patient, live your journey out...then come home to be with me.

We've lost alot of babies this year already!
#RIP to our long lost loves...

ONE OF THE WORLD'S OLDEST PIT BULLS!

The average life expectancy of a healthy pit bull is around 12 years🐶, however with the breed’s social stigmas and risk factors many sadly don’t make it that long. So when we came across Tigger, a 22 year old pit bull in Waco, Texas, we knew we had to find out more about her for our book, The Forever Dog.🐾

One of the most important factors according to longevity experts is stress, particularly in the home. As a rescue/foster-mom, Julie Morriss had many dogs in and out of her home so “in our house everyone has to have a calm state of mind”. Like many of the other long-lived dogs we met, Tigger was an easy-going and calm dog, and spent most of her days accompanying Julie throughout her day.🚙 And though she was raised mostly on kibble, Tigger always had some sort of fresh food shared with her throughout her life. 🥦🍓🥩

What are some of the changes you’ve made in your pet’s life after reading The Forever Dog? We’d love to hear your comments and takeaways below!

📖You can read more about these long-lived dogs and our suggestions for what you can do to help maximize your dog’s health in our new book

WHAT YOU USE TO CLEAN🧽🪣 YOUR HOME ULTIMATELY ENDS UP INSIDE YOUR PET. CHOOSE WISELY.

Study after study shows that indoor and outdoor home chemicals such as cleaning products🧼, air fresheners🕯, fire retardants📛 treated lumber decks🪵, stain-proofing chemicals🖌, chemicals from cooking fumes🔥, and lawn pesticides 💦are contaminating our pets' bodies.

Science has noted that most of these chemicals are considered potentially mutagenic carcinogens.

Don’t panic though; this post is meant to empower you to make changes that will go a long way to protect you and your pet. The goal is to prevent these exposures from disrupting the essential functioning of the body, impacting DNA🧬, cellular membranes, and protein.

In the most famous study to date by the Environmental Working Group : "Dogs and cats were found to be contaminated with 48 of 70 industrial chemicals tested, including 43 chemicals at levels higher than those typically found in people, according to our study of plastics and food packaging chemicals, heavy metals, fire retardants, and stain-proofing chemicals in pooled samples of blood🩸 and urine from 20 dogs and 37 cats collected at a Virginia veterinary clinic.

Major gaps in our system of public health protections allow most industrial chemicals on the market with no mandatory safety testing. Chemical companies do not have to prove products are safe before they are sold, or understand how much of their chemicals end up in people, let alone pets. There are few standards that limit chemical contamination in pet food, pet toys, and other products for our companion animals. For pets as for people, the result is a body burden of complex mixtures of industrial chemicals never tested for safety. Health problems in pets span high rates of cancer in dogs and skyrocketing incidence of hyperthyroidism in cats. Genetic changes can't explain the increases in certain health problems among pets. Scientists believe that chemical exposures play a role."

Life of an animal lover

When I was 12 years old I had the absolute pleasure of being able to help (or watch) in a full line pet store, I mainly stayed in the back with the groomers and bathers, taking it all in.. This was my life for many many years.. Then one day, when I was 17, the groomer abruptly quit and I was given the opportunity to “groom” I really didn’t have the first real clue as to what I was doing, but I had books and flash cards and an amazing teacher who wanted me to succeed, and that set my career in motion. I have worked in countless pet stores in many states, I have cleaned puppy p**p and bird p**p, been bitten by ever animal you can come across in the pet industry, managed departments in petco, groomed and bathed for the bigger industry, but now the time has come for A Mutt Makeover to set roots and begin something I have been dreaming about my entire life!!!!

WELCOME!! Come in, browse my pictures, leave comments, but most importantly, bring your pet to me, for me to love too!!

TREATS FROM YOUR FRIDGE FOR SENSITIVE DOGS! What’s the best training treats for dogs with GI issues, including diarrhea, colitis, ulcers and sensitive stomachs? Unripe, or green bananas!🍌 Green bananas🍌 are the unsung heroes of gut health; they are low in sugar and high in pectin and prebiotics (non-digestible, resistant starch) which are powerful food tools to nourish your dog’s good gut bacteria💥🦠, increasing the production of butyrate and other short-chain fatty acids. Research also shows the resistant starch in green bananas can have a positive effect on blood sugar control. The anti-ulcer activity of green bananas has been attributed to a flavonoid, leucocyanidin, which may also inhibit the release of histamine in the gut. Resistant starch also contributes to the prevention of intestinal diseases, increases the synthesis of B-complex vitamins and mineral absorption, improves the immune response, and may aid in the prevention of the development of intestinal cancer, according to researchers. Quartering green banana slices🍌 provides the perfect training treat for dogs with sensitive GI tracts. Suggested amounts, chopped into bite sized pieces: Giant breeds: 1 green banana a day Medium to large breeds: ½ green banana a day Small breeds: ¼ green banana a day One fact all of the microbiologists agreed on, when we wrote The Forever Dog book, was that the more fresh food fibers added to your dog’s bowl, the healthier your dog will be. Green bananas are a simple, easy way to build gut health! 🐾 Longevity researchers are clear: a diverse microbiome is critical for maximal health span, the longest-lived mammals have a microbially-diverse gut, created by consuming a variety of gut-building foods. If you want to learn more about certain longevity foods and treats from your fridge that should be rotated into your dog’s diet plan and how much to feed to strengthen your dog’s immune system, our new book called The Forever Dog is packed with surprising new science that will help your dog live healthier, happier, and longer.
