what’s in your dog’s wallet?

we

are frequently asked

by our clients, friends and strangers,

“what is that purple pouch attached to your dog’s collar?”

purple suede dog wallet attached to a leather dog collar contains our dog jake's most important vital identification

to which we faithfully reply, “it’s Jake’s puppy wallet . . . it’s his ticket home.”

it holds some of his most important pieces of canine identification,

including the City of Calgary dog licence, rabies info, PetLynx,

and his answering service. 😉

UPDATED: removing sticky gooey stuff from pet fur

our previous post

for removing sticky, gooey stuff

(think of the stuff from poplar, fir or pine trees)

from pet fur we recently asked several veterinarian clinics for advice and updated the information.

notable additions include NOT USING isopropyl alcohol, hand sanitizer and peanut butter because if your dog licks this stuff it may cause problems.*

*ALWAYS CONSULT YOUR VETERINARIAN FIRST!*
