CURLY FOSTER DIET
We have found this diet reduces shedding dramatically, increases weight loss,
helps reduce the risk of UTIs, increases energy levels and lowers the rate of allergic reactions.
We do diet modifications based on specific dogs' needs.
Recommended Food Products
We also use supplements like Grizzly Salmon Oil and Pet Authority Digestive Supplement to reduce shedding, help with dry, itchy skin, prevent UTIs and add probiotics to their systems.
Many pugs have allergies which is why some are fed only certain lines of Wellness ie/ Simple Solutions or Turkey vs. Chicken. Wellness is a great product but some of their lines have 'too many' ingredients. Some dogs do well with Salmon oil and others do not...it is all about knowing your pet's needs and creating the right balance.
We speak from experience and cannot guarantee anything but If you have any questions, please feel free to inquire: email@example.com

Providing your puppy or dog with an indoor kennel crate can satisfy many dogs' need for a den-like enclosure. Besides being an effective housebreaking tool (because it takes advantage of the dog's natural reluctance to soil its sleeping place), it can also help to reduce separation anxiety, to prevent destructive behavior (such as chewing furniture), to keep a puppy away from potentially dangerous household items (i.e., poisons, electrical wires, etc.), and to serve as a mobile indoor dog house which can be moved from room to room whenever necessary.
Allergies - More Information
Allergies are becoming increasingly common and troublesome in dogs.
Allergies and their reactions are actually a symptom of toxic overload. An allergic reaction is simply the body’s way of responding to a toxin or contaminant overload. The toxins or contaminants have built up in body to the place that the body can no longer tolerate them and most cases are no longer able to eliminate them from the body. In other words it is the body’s way of saying, “No more, please!”
