Behavioral Issues – When a Shih Tzu  likes to graze in the yard eating grass, or worse yet – eats feces, this can be directlyrelated to the diet that they are eating.  When a Tzu is ingesting those worthless fillers, their instinct tells them that they need more nutrients.  And they attempt to do so by eating these non-food elements.

Allergies – Allergies to dog food is one of the most common allergies that affect small breed dogs as the Shih Tzu.  This can cause upset stomachs, vomiting, diarrhea, loose bowels, and external symptoms such as itchy skin and a dull coat. Many cases can be severe and following the correct home cooking methods I have for you will show you how to make sure your Tzu is receiving the  nutrients they need, while at the same time finding out what he or she is allergic to.

Wheat – For those who already know that a Shih Tzu is allergic to wheat (one of the most common culprits) you can  quickly and easily make delicious wheat-free home cooked meals for your Shih Tzu.

Teething – Why watch your puppy suffer through the teething phase, when you can make very delicious home made recipes that will greatly help with discomfort.

Age Appropriate Food – Manufactured food companies will have you running back and forth always changing varieties… Puppy food, adult food, senior food, pregnancy food…When you make homemade dog food recipes, you do not need to worry about the age of your dog.  My home cooking recipes fit any Shih Tzu of any age. Certain meals are very easily adjusted for puppy to adult.

Raw Food Diets – Did you know that very recently, scientists have traced canines all the way back to 4 specific wolves – amazing!  Having originated from wild animals, our little canine family members still have the instinct to eat raw meat.  For those who wish to see if their Tzu enjoys a raw food diet, you will have recipes for this as well.

Tummy Trouble Times –  It could just be an “off” day with an upset stomach.. or your Shih Tzu may be recovering from an illness or treatment.  It is at these times that you need to offer food to help calm down the tummy. For those times, read therecipes for “Upset Tummy Food”.

Trust – Your dog unequivocally and without hesitation, trusts you to feed them. They stand there looking so cute, practically drooling while you prepare their dinner.  They are loyal to you and eat what you place down.  Do you want to feed your Tzu fillers?  Or do you want to feed them home cooked food specifically for the Shih Tzu and know that the only elements your dog is ingesting are healthy, nutritious and ingredients that your dog’s body actually needs.

In Dr. Sara’s Healthy Home Cooking for the Shih Tzu, you will have recipes for:

Hello, friend!

The Minnesota Zoo now has double the cuteness thanks to the arrival of a 3-week-old female Amur tiger cub born at the Saint Louis Zoo.

The cub, hand-reared from birth, traveled on a Delta Air Lines flight to get to Minneapolis, where she has been examined and joined with the Minnesota Zoo’s resident Amur tiger cub, which has also been hand-reared.

“Tigers learn from other tigers,” curator Stever Bircher said in a statement. “That kind of socialization with a cub her age will be good for this cub.”

Natural flea remedy

Only Natural Pet Herbal Defense Oil Blend

    The newest addition to our popular Herbal Defense line, this concentrated insect repellent oil blend uses the natural power of Neem Oil, Citronella, Lavender, Cedar, and other essential oils to keep annoying insect pests away from your dog. Although pesticide sprays and squeeze-on products are one quick-fix solution, for most of us, the risks of using these toxic chemicals on and around our human and animal loved ones are just not worth it. Our all natural repellent oil is 100% DEET and pesticide free, with a scent that people love, but biting insects can’t stand.

    Only Natural Pet Herbal Defense Oil keeps mosquitoes and biting flies off your pet’s vulnerable ears, saving days of scratching and discomfort from itchy bites. It will deter ticks and reduce your risk of picking up those disease carrying hitchhikers on your daily walk or when out for a hike. And of course, this natural repellent works great to protect your dog for a trip to the dog park, doggy day care, training class, etc., to minimize the chances of bringing home fleas, the worst insect enemy of all.

    Our Herbal Defense Oil also works well as part of a holistic flea prevention or treatment plan. If you are preparing for flea season or already involved in a battle with fleas, please see our article, The Natural Approach to Flea Control, for helpful tips and suggestions. We’ve also grouped our natural flea remedies into convenient kits based on the severity of your flea situation to save you time and money in gathering your weapons to win the war on fleas, safely and naturally. Please visit our Flea Care Kits for Cats and for Dogs.


    Why Go Natural?


    Toxic chemical pesticides have been known to cause immediate health crises in some dogs and cats, and perhaps worse, these chemicals can circulate and accumulate in our pets’ bodies, doing unseen damage to vital organs that may go undetected for years. And then there is the damage these chemical residues can do to our children, ourselves, and the environment.

    Pesticides used in the home and yard leave residue in our systems, too, and many pesticide residues end up in our water supply, with their lingering presence detectable in soil and water samples for many years, and perhaps indefinitely. Current research findings suggest that beyond their immediate toxic impact on natural ecosystems, many chemical residues break down into compounds that mimic hormones and may wreak havoc on wildlife populations that are exposed to them.

    In many parts of the country, insect pests like fleas are becoming immune to the pesticides being used against them, creating “super pests” that become even tougher to eradicate and require even more toxic solutions to kill them. Using natural products to keep insects away prevents this problem.

    Our Only Natural Pet Herbal Defense products are a natural line of insect repellent products that are non-toxic, and safe to use for dogs, cats*, and humans. These top quality natural insect repellants use herbal ingredients to safely and effectively make your pets less attractive to insect parasites, without the dangerous effects of those toxic chemical products. Herbal Defense and our other natural products for protection from mosquitoes, fleas and ticks give you peace of mind, as well as great results.

    *Please note that Herbal Defense Oil is for use with dogs only, as it contains concentrated essential oils that can be toxic to cats. We suggest Herbal Defense Spray for use with cats.
