Q&A: How does one prevent canine sarcoptic mange?

Question by ladybug: How does one prevent canine sarcoptic mange?
My father brought home a stray. The dog was diagnosed with sarcoptic mange. My dog, ella, is starting to have the signs (itchy, sores). What treatments work faster? We started her on Lime-sulfur dips. Also, I am bringing home a puppy very soon. How can you prevent mange on her?

Well you may need to seek a vets attn because there is no way to stop the spread until you kill the nasty lil mites causing it and the vet can give you a oral medication to help this along. Until they are healed you are going to have to keep them from contact with each other and each others bedding areas. gl :) ps i am glad some 1 out there is helping the poor lil creatures out and giving them a 2nd chance

life this week (via photos)

It’s Friday you guys!  Yeah!  Instead of doing a Friday is for Favorites today, I thought I’d share some moments from life lately, via good ole’ Instagram photos. 

Pics from top:  loving my new coral shoes from bait  // is there a ‘hoarders’-type reality show for people with too many necklaces? // swirly sunset // tiny moon // 2 of my favorite things: coffee and my alma mater // first haircut in 7 months (p.s. my face looks especially gelphling-ish here) // the baby robins finally left the nest yesterday (i miss them!)  // got this killer shot of the eclipse sunday! // container garden looking slightly wilted in robbie’s absense // my very favorite necklace from roots & feathers

What are your plans for this three day weekend?  My super bad ass Uncle Chris is going to be in town from NYC, so my sis is coming up from Indianapolis as well, and we’re all going to hang with my rockstar 97 year-old grandmother tomorrow.  (She is seriously the coolest lady ever.)  Then on Sunday my friend Annie and I are driving a few hours south to a festival that Robbie and the band are playing.  I usually go to this festival for the entire four days, but this year, I decided one day is plenty.  Which means I am either (A) the old, boring person that I used to make fun of, (B) smart, or (C) all of the above.  Robbie comes back for a few days Sunday night, and we’ll probably meet up with friends Monday for some Memorial Day snacks and beers.  Even though I work from a home studio and tend to work much longer hours than I probably should, I always feel much less stressed to get things accomplished over three day weekends.  So I’m pretty excited.

If you haven’t yet, don’t forget to enter our May Giveaway for a chance to win $ 250 worth of goodies from our May sponsors!  Have a glorious weekend, friends!

Are you on Instagram?  If so, leave your user name in the comments so I can check out your photos!  You can see more of mine here or under the user name bubbyandbean.

2 Bottles of Country Bob’s #Giveaway Ends 4/29

 This is a guest post review and giveaway by The Deals and More!
Review by: The Deals and More 
Recently I had the opportunity to review this wonderful product. The first thing when my family tried it on chicken was “I want more!” We generally use dry seasonings when making chicken but decided to try this instead. I can’t say enough good things about this product. We have only tried it on chicken because we enjoy it so much but can’t wait to try it on other items as well. On their website they have recipes and some sound so delicious that I can’t wait to go buy more Country Bob’s to try them out. I am a huge soup person, my family not so much, but I seen a couple on there that I want to try. Ok, truth be told, I want to try all the soup recipes. 
Before getting my review product I had never heard or seen this product. Now that I’ve seen the bottle, I’m seeing it everywhere. My local store that we grocery shop at has it on one of the top shelves and almost hidden. I’m sad that I’ve never seen it before to try it out. Now that I know my local store carries it, this will be something that is always going to be in my house.
If you would like to order some from their website please head over HERE. If you would like to see if a local store carries this product, please click HERE.
Now that you read my review, here comes the best part. How about an opportunity to win this wonderful product. Enter below for your chance and good luck.
