  1. 101 Uses For Apple Cider Vinegar

    I use an eye dropper and just put in a couple of drops I also wipe around the ear with ACV Yes it can be used in the same way it is used for dogs.
  2. Cutting Nails

    my Maltese used to freak out too and it took about a year to get him to trust me near his claws..... what I did was used human nail clippers as I could hide them in my hand and he couldn't see them and when I bathed him in the laundry sink I used to put one arm around him to hold his paw and do a quick clip before he had time to notice I had clipped his claws... sometimes I would only get about 2 claws done one each paw but I slowly worked my way up from there to where he is so good now. The secret is to be quick....
  3. Cutting Nails

    Very true. This is how I do it.... maybe my experience may help you. I always do it straight after a bath when the nail is soft. Wrap your puppy in a towel and give it a cuddle while uncovering one paw at a time. Make it a pleasurable exercise and maybe sing I know but, it will relax you and send pleasant vibes to your puppy. Oh, and hold each claw firmly at the base to stop any vibration of the claw bed while you are clipping. I use claw clippers that have a guard on them so I cannot take too much off. Better to have to cut twice than to cut too much off it is rather important to always touch and fondle your dogs paws, ears and getting puppy used to you opening its mouth all this will make it easier for when things need doing to it or it needs a checkup at the vet.
  4. How Do I Convince Someone?

    The long coat does work as insulation. I always shell my Maltese ie clip all his belly and groin area even under the armpits. This will be my Shih Tzu's first summer and I will be doing the same with her. If your friend does clip down her dog I hope she remembers to use sunscreen on it. Even in long coats Maltese have pink skin and sunscreen is needed down the centre part.
  5. Thank you for the link. My Maltese has blocked tear ducts so I am constantly on the lookout for a product to keep his face white.
  6. Apple Cider Vinegar

    I have been giving my Maltese ACV for a few years now. You will also notice a marked improvement in tartar buildup. My malt is now 4 years old and has no tartar. I also use it for a final rinse when bathing your dog. Though usually I just use white vinegar for that and keep the expensive ACV aside for their water bowl.
  7. Good Bye Maxie

    What a gorgeous boy he was. I am so sorry for your loss.
  8. Itchy Itchy Itchy

    what about when you bathe her? Does she stand in the suds? You really need to make sure all the shampoo has been rinsed away. I use a vinegar rinse as a final rinse just to make sure all the shampoo has been rinsed out.

  10. Make A Signature Thread

    WoW what a lot of talent we have here I just love what you are all doing I must try and get more creative.
  11. Apple Cider Vinegar

    I use it for all of the above too. A benefit I found for putting it in the drinking water is that it also prevents tartar buildup.
  12. The NILIF program really works I have done that from day one with my Maltese and have had no issues with him whatsoever Actually he was reared in my office and was surrounded by children and thus adores them. I guess I am one of the lucky owners of a Maltese. I am sorry you are having issues I hope you get them sorted.
