Well, Actually...No I can't believe these words are coming out of my word processor! For the moment, let's just say that I'm at the "certain age" that came a generation or so after all the hoopla about laundry detergents, hand soaps, shampoos, and other cleaning products and lather. Personally, I bought into it; completely. Now, it just doesn't want to leave my brain! It's that ingrained. It was pounded into me as a youngster.  Somewhere around the turn of the 20th Century, some marketing genius came up with the idea...

The Wait is Finally Over! It took a week to get our inventory cleared of another product posing as BVH Pet Care Premium Dog Shampoo and Conditioner. Well, actually two out of three warehouse locations were cleaned up and nothing should be shipped from the third location until it is properly inventoried. The customer response was overwhelming. We are extremely thankful for our valued customers who waited for the return of our listing. We apologize for the inconvenience. We offered a coupon to our subscriber list good for 1000 Sooty...

Amazon Account Hijacked and Inventory Substituted With Another Brand. January 2015 has been a very awkward month for BVH Pet Care. Early in the month our product listing on Amazon was taken over by a competitor (a term called hijacking). What happens is when somebody searched for BVH Premium Dog Shampoo and Conditioner, they were redirected to the hijacker’s listing which was identical to ours with the exception of the price and “purchased from” on the Order Button. They doubled the price which meant no sales were made and caused...

I was asked this question by a neighbor the other day. The quick answer is, maybe. Not what he wanted to hear. Sigh. We researched Otitis extensively. Medically speaking, it seems that a bunch of things were thrown into “Otitis Bucket” making it difficult to pin-point an exact answer. So what’s in the Bucket? Pretty much anything and everything relating to an ear infection. Simply put, Otitis is generally called Otitis Externa in in medical circles. That is most generally what we are discussing in terms of dogs. Otitis Externa...

Is the Search for Waste Bags Finally Over? One of the problems I have with training my dog outside of the back yard is what to do about the occasional waste. My homeowner’s association provides bag dispensers and trash cans in each of the common areas. I’m fairly certain that they bought the bags from the lowest bidder. They are very thick, small and difficult to use, particularly in cold weather. They are not well constructed so they break once in a while. Between the distance to the relief stations,...

Last year we celebrated Thanksgiving at my son’s house. Not wanting to miss out on the left-overs, we prepared a small turkey and all the trimmings at home on Friday. Our favorite part of dinner is the “special” butter rolls. A recipe handed down for generations.My son’s English Mastiff, Tank and his mother-in-law are not, let’s say, particularly fond of each other. Therefore, Tank was spending the remainder of the holiday weekend at our house. Yippy ki-yay! He's a great dog. Keeps my dog Maggie occupied. We needed the break.Tank...

  How Often Can You Bathe Your Dog? The first thing you might want to consider is, how often should or could you bathe your dog? Most everything you read or find on the Internet tells you, certainly not more than once or twice a month, all the way up to three times a year. The reason given is that you will cause your dog to have dry, itchy skin. That's commonsense, right? Well, where did that come from? There is no scientific or medical evidence to substantiate the "dry...

  Does Your Dog Have Hair or Fur? In order to answer this question, I have to "kill" a few "Sacred Cows". Here we go; remember, I'm just the messenger! I don't make this stuff up. What folks call hair or fur is the same thing. People make a big deal out of this argument because they want to believe that dogs with hair are hypoallergenic and don't shed. These are two very popular misconceptions. Some dogs may cause fewer allergy symptoms than others, but that depends on the individual...

  Grooming Your Dog with BVH Pet Care Products The process takes about 30 minutes from gathering your supplies to drying your dog. The longest part is entertaining your dog for about ten minutes, allowing the shampoo to work its way to the skin. This is a tip we picked-up from our vet. He said the shampoo has to be on the coat for 10 minutes in order to work its way down to clean the skin. The video is about 7 minutes, so we obviously put nearly 23 minutes...

Let’s begin at the beginning when it comes to food Where did you get you dog?If you adopted your dog from a shelter, a friend, or a like source, find out what the dog is being fed and purchase some of the same. It will aid in the dog being comfortable in his new environment. You can change later after the dog is assimilated into the new home.How about a pet store? Get a small quantity of what they recommend. You will probably make some sort of change after your...
