    sulphur is toxic. Not just to fleas.

    Familiar with sulphuric acid and rotten egg gas?

    Lime sulphur that you mix with water and you put on plants to prevent fungus (mildew etc) is less toxic but I don't think the fleas (and other bugs) would be all that disturbed by it.

    what sort did you get her?

    Treats can be anything she likes.

    My dog loves vegemite on toast, and dried roo (roo jerky or roo ribbons) and something called lamb moisties which I got from a fodder store in Brookfield (QLD)... but she's not very fussy.

    She will trade the roo jerky for smoked salmon but she'd rather have both.

    What ever treats you give - you have to reduce from the total food quota.

    Oh the breeder uses it on her Mals, the rub it into there fur and also add a bit to there chicken mince. The vet also recommended the same, as well as adding copper piece into there water. I for one always use Advocate for my cats so I was going to do the same

    Sulfur for the fur and put a bit of Sulfur in some chicken mince(not red meat and best to freeze it cause they love frozen food) helps with ticks. Copper pipe in water will help with fleas. Cooked chicken and rice will help to keep their poos solid. A bone every 4-6 weeks will help clean their teeth (take it off the dog after a week and a half - never cooked bones). Raw eggs for their fur, they also like frozen raw egg. Take them for a walk on the bitcheman to keep their paws trimmed (saves you having to cut them).

    Not sure I would necessary take that as proof of anything. I know some excellent ones but I have also know some that don't have a clue particuarly when it comes to dog behaviour.

    There is nothing wrong with trying alternative therapies if you have done your research. However an holistic approach means looking after the whole of the dog, social, mental and physical and looks at a combination of complementary therapies including mainstream medicine.

    I myself use products like Rose-HIp vital Canine which is registered as a complementry health product for joint health and general well being, but I will also use a mainstream product if I need to.

    Be careful with your pup walking too much on bitumin. This will be too hard on growing joints. I avoid those sorts of surfaces with my young dogs and I limit it with my adults. I avoid moving at speed on these surfaces, the impact on their joints I don't like. I would prefer to trim their nails than exercise them too much on bitumin. It can also damage their pads if it is hot.

    I vaccinate my dogs every 3 years and I make sure I feed them a balanced diet of a good quality grain free dry food and commercial RAW with meaty bones raw every couple of weeks. I feed all my meat raw and part from the commercial RAW I buy human grade meat when it is on special and hearts etc. My dogs also love apples, carrots and bananas etc. I use sardines as well. It is really important to make sure a diet is balanced and I find the good quality commercial food makes this easier.

    A diet of cooked chicken and rice is going to be inadequate in supplying all the nutrients a growing pup requires. My dogs have nice firm poos on their diet so it is not exclusive to cooked chicken and rice. My dogs are working dogs and need to be in peak condition and they would not get what they need on cooked chicken and rice alone.

    I think if I took my dog for a walk on the bitumen at the moment - her paws would get burnt. Well maybe not right now but from sun up to sun down - it's way too hot.

    I find the beach is a better option but we don't get there often enough to keep her claws trim. We go to a groomer who clips and files them all in 10 minutes for $10
