Does your dog smell like Fritos?

Frito Feet.... cute name for an annoying, obnoxious problem.

If your dog smells like Fritos, or popcorn or some other snack food, she probably has a condition commonly called Frito Feet though it may effect other areas besides feet. My little dog Cookie (a shih Tzu) gets this around her eyes (typical of a flat faced, weepy eyed dog) while for other dogs it's the ears, or even the skin.

As silly as it sounds, this all develops from a little beastie known as YEAST. Normally, this little beast has a place in a dog's life, but when something pushes it over the limits (stress, diet, environment), you get a yeast overgrowth and a snack food smelly dog.

In light colored dogs it will even show up as a red stain on the fur. Often found between the toes or anyplace the dog habitually licks. That licking sometimes seems to become obsessive, but the reality is your pet is ITCHY!How horrible to be constantly itchy and not be able to vocalize to the person who cares for you!

Happily there is a simple step that will help most dogs immediately start to find relief! 

First assess whether this is a chronic (long term condition) or recent onset (possibly a summer, heat thing).

For both types, start with mixing 1 gallon water, with 1 cup hydrogen peroxide, and 2 cups white vinegar. Store in a large jug.

For stinky feet: a bowl of this works well to dip feet into (and can be used for a day or 2 without changing) - dry feet well after  - remember yeast like moist dark areas.... dry... dry... dry! 

For other areas of the body, like Cookie's face or for some dogs, their ears: Take a washcloth and saturate with the solution, then wring so it's not dripping. Gently sweep the washcloth over the areas.
Remember to wash the washcloth after each use so as to not reinfect the areas (also the hydrogen peroxide will break down the cloth if not washed out each time). 

This will work wonders for the summer situation - now for the more chronic:

Continue as above BUT you may also consider adding some probiotics to your dog's food. It's a simple thing - get yourself a low fat PLAIN yogurt and add a little to your dog's food once or twice a day. Cookie (13 pounds) gets about 1/2 a tablespoon a day, my larger dogs get 1-2 tablespoons a day. Start slowly and build up or you could upset your dog's digestion.

The third thing you may need to look at is your dog's food itself! Commercial dog food is primarily made with the assumption that all dogs need meat...However when I did some research on BREED SPECIFIC food, I found that none of my girls should be eating.... BEEF!!! Whooda thunk it? A dog shouldn't eat BEEF???

But once I took beef out of their diet an amazing number of things cleared up! I won't go into gory details here (if you want 'em write to me) but let's just say I was impressed!

If you want more information of Frito Feet and holistic pet care check out this website.

Here's hoping you and your dog have an itch free summer!

I've come across that currently, more and more people are increasingly being attracted to surveillance cameras and the discipline of digital photography. However, really being a photographer, you must first invest so much of your time deciding the model of digicam to buy and also moving via store to store just so you might buy the most inexpensive camera of the brand you have decided to select. But it does not end just there. You also have to contemplate whether you should purchase a digital camera extended warranty. Thx for the good points I accumulated from your website.

Samsung was scrutinized again last week in a separate case, in which a judge determined that the company violated a court-ordered agreement to keep some Apple documents secret. During the discovery process, Apple had given Samsung confidential patent licensing agreements with Nokia, Ericsson and other companies — privileged information only for Samsung’s lawyers working on the case. But Samsung was found to have shared the documents internally with employees and unauthorized lawyers so it could leverage its negotiations with Nokia and Ericsson. Apple and Nokia are expected to recommend a punishment for Samsung in a hearing on Dec. 9.
