Customer Question
Trying to get rid...

Trying to get rid of mites. If I spray windex on floor and dog eats food from, or licks, the floor, will the dog be harmed?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations the dog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the dog's name and age?

4 dogs - all adult rescues, chi and chi-mix. Ages maybe 6 or 7 to 12.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Maggie, Tina, Chili Dog & Nina

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Maggie?

No. All the dogs are in good health. Nina does need dental later this year.

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. The ingredients in Windex - water, 2-hexoxyethanol,isopropanolamine, sodium dodecylbenzene sulfonate, lauramine oxide, ammonium hydroxide, fragrance, and Liquitint sky blue dye - are of very low toxicity in the amounts found in the product and so as with ingesting anything unusual transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea can arise but your dogs wouldn't be intoxicated and would remain safe. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

It's a one, Okay so I got her when I was 13, making her part
Okay Hi so I got her when I was 13, making her part of the family for 6 years now. We've done everything we possibly can for her, all her shots, she's fixed, walks 4-5 times a day, etc. All that good jazz that responsible owners do.But there's still one concern that is really bugging me and I don't know how I can help her at the moment.Her teeth are really awful. Like REALLY bad. I've tried a bunch of methods, bones, chew toys, dental treats, brushing her teeth, dental spray, etc. She hates all of it. Ever since she was a puppy, toys uninterested her, bones weren't so much as licked and were left abandoned, she is repulsed by dental chews, becomes very aggressive when I use the spray or try brushing her teeth. Every year her teeth get worse, and I'm getting very worried about how it will affect her health soon.Now, I'm a full time college student, barely make enough money for gas and car insurance. I can't afford dental care for her at the moment, and neither can my family. She's 6 years old and is a chihuahua terrior if that helps … read more
