hi, we have a concrete patio that Larry and Zeke have to use to get in and out to go potty from the back yard. The length they cross is about 15-20 feet in total. living in Chicago, we obviously get a lot of snow and we take great pains to keep the patio ice free because we are terrified one of the boys will slip and go down hard (they frequently come running and hit it going fast). We've always used the pet safe ice melt, which works ok, but is TERRIBLY expensive and we've been going through at LEAST 10-12 containers every winter (probably a lot more), with all the snow we've been getting here the past few years. they only go out between 4-7 times a day (5 being the norm) and only are on the ice melt stuff for a few seconds, when it's even on the ground. Would it really be bad for them if we used the regular melting salt for that small area instead of the pet safe? I could see if they were standing on it for a long time but it's literally 2 seconds to cross. any thoughts? thanks!
Hi everyone, We have a problem with ticks in our area. We tried using Advantix and unfortunately Sam did not react well to it at all. His back was itchy for close to two weeks and every time we would pet his back he would arch/curl his back. BUT, it's effective. We haven't found a tick on him since and that's what we wanted. SO we need to find another tick preventive solution... We have read a lot about Virbac's Preventic collar (seems to be very effective). It seems to be the way to go. Our only worry is that it indicates that it should not be used on cats. We do have one cat, should we be worried? They are not at all fans of each other, but we all live together in the same condo. Any feedback/advice/experiences you could share would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
