Finally, Products that Do What They Say They Do!

Have you ever tried something and nothing has worked? Well, those days are OVER…
Equicaninecare are proud to offer Antimicrobial Solutions of the highest standard within the industry of Pet Health for more reasons than you realise. Some of which are listed below:
-Safe, Gentle, Immediate, Non-toxic, Preventative, Worry Free
-99.9% Efficiency Rate
-Cost Effective
-Professionally endorsed
-User Friendly
Their product is the only one on the market with a 99.9% efficiency rate, and this is due to an active ingredient called “Benzylkonium Chloride”. It holds the same solution suspended in skin softeners and conditioners, which is a proprietary registered FDA formula created for the medical industry. Using this formula results in accelerated healing by keeping the wound bacteria and infection free without the side effects of stripping the skin from its natural oils. Allowing wounds to heal from the inside out, this means the body will not waste energy on fighting off infection, but instead uses the same energy to repair damaged tissue in its most natural state. Equicaninecare's products are PH balanced, and unlike iodine and alcohol, will not dry out the skin with extended use. The only logical solution for your dog's and horse's skin problems!

Dog Poems: "Welcome Home" - by Louella C.Poole

January 31, 2008 by ann



I saw him coming up the street,
So spent and weary that his feet
Seemed like two heavy weights of lead;
Ah, he had known so hard a day,
Small wonder that he looked that way,
And slouched along with drooping head!
Then, suddenly, with frantic shout,
A little yellow dog rushed out a yard,
To greet the tired man;
He licked his hands, he kissed his face,
Then dashed ahead in eager race,
Then back again he gaily ran!
The tired worker laughed aloud,
Straightened his shoulders; through the crowd
Pressed on; his feet seemed to take wings
So fast he walked as he went up the street
towards home...
The yellow pup: all joyous leaps and caperings.
O little dog so fond and true,
Much good in life you surely do
When you can make a man so old and spent
Forget fatigue -- make him so glad
He acts like any madcap lad,
And laughs aloud with merriment!

---Louella C.Poole---

The World’s Worst Genetic Mutation in a Dog:

January 29, 2008 by ann

No, this dog does not have Arnold Schwarzenegger’s genes and no ….she hasn’t even spent a day at the gym. That’s right. She. Meet Wendy. The Whippet. Not exactly the most feminine representative of her breed, Wendy is a result of a genetic mutation. I first thought she was the best altered digital photo of the century, but (sadly?) she is real! Wendy - the dog whose appearance is a long way from the usual long, lean and sleek look of her breed- lives on a farm in Victoria, Vancouver Island, Canada and is what scientists refer to as : “ double-muscled” or a " Bully Whippet". Due to the genetic defect, nature rewarded her with twice the muscle size compared to the other representatives of her breed. Resembling the cross between Schwarzenegger and the Incredible Hulk, Wendy still has the heart, lungs and head of a normal-sized Whippet. Only her musculature is twice that of her breed.

Now You Can Also Be An Expert At Choosing The Right Dog Collar!

January 28, 2008 by ann

What is the best collar for my dog? Well, for the majority of dogs, a traditional nylon or leather dog collar is enough. There are so many styles of dog collars to choose from. This depends on the size and disposition of a dog as well as your training need. There are dog collars for specific situations and these are as follows:

Traditional Dog Collars should ride high on a dog’s neck; not loose so that it slides down near the top of his shoulder blades. The collar should not be too loose since it will slip over the dog’s head. It should also not be tight as this restricts breathing and may cause coughing or choking. A collar should be snug with enough room to fit two fingers between the dog's neck and his collar. The collar size on growing puppies should be checked regularly. Use a tape measure to measure your dog’s neck, and then add on two to three inches for safety. Collar and lead width should match your dog’s size. Smaller leads are for small dogs and puppies, and wider, more durable styles are for bigger dogs.

Dog Harnesses go around the neck and around the shoulders behind the front legs. These are recommended for dogs that have upper respiratory disease or diseases of the throat or trachea, such as a collapsed trachea. A dog with respiratory problems would pull on the collar and on the leash and this would place pressure on the throat and trachea. Irritation and coughing would result. Therefore, harnesses relieve that pressure.


Halter-type Dog Collars will give you the best control over your dog since it gives you control of your dog’s head. These collars look more like a horse's halter, with a band going around the back of the head, and another around the nose. The leash snaps onto the collar under the chin. When you pull on the leash, the dog's head will either be pulled down or to the side - this makes it virtually impossible for the dog to pull you forward.

Chain-slip Dog Collars, also called check chain or 'choke collars,' provide effective training when used correctly and on appropriate dogs. These collars are used for dominant dogs. If you plan to use a choke collar on your dog, have a trainer show you how to use it correctly. Correct usage involves a quick 'tug-and-release' action. These collars should only be worn during training sessions, never in a crate, and avoided in pets with delicate builds and tracheas, such as Yorkshire Terriers. For correct sizing, measure your pet's neck and add 2-1/2"- 3". There is a right and wrong way to put a slip collar on a dog. To correctly place a collar on a dog, the top ring on a properly-looped collar forms a letter P when you stand in front of the dog and pull it snug. If it forms the number 9, it is on backward and may not release immediately as designed, which may cause discomfort or gagging.

Pronged Collars, also called pinch collars, contain blunt prongs that protrude inward from the links. Designed for only the most stubborn pullers, they are temporary training tools used to change behavior on dogs that do not respond to any other collar. Halter-type collars give you more control and are much less likely to harm your dog.

Last but not least every collar you own should have a current nametag attached to it at all times!
