How to Prevent TICK DISEASES

We live in southern Rhode Island at the edge of a wildlife sanctuary. Deer play in our backyard. The mice, moles, and chipmunks cavort in our gardens. A bucolic scene, right? Not if you, a family member, or your pets have had one or more of the devastating diseases carried by ticks.

How to Find a GOOD BREEDER

Caveat Emptor. That’s Latin for “Let the buyer beware.” To keep things simple, let’s just say you should not under any circumstances buy a toy poodle (or any) puppy from a puppy mill breeder or pet store.

In an earlier Toy Poodle News article (“What to Feed My Toy Poodle”), we explained that we used to feed our teacup poodle Dibs the Wellness Small Breed formula dry dog food because Dibs needed tiny kibble.

Wellness foods seem to be among the best you can buy if our experience is any indication. About six months ago we transitioned our three toy poodles to Wellness CORE Ocean Recipe dry kibble. Dibs was having skin issues and I concluded he is allergic to poultry and, maybe, grains. Wellness CORE Ocean Recipe seems to have solved Dibs’ skin problems and his hair has grown back on his chest.
