Vista Large Shedding Blade for Dogs & Horses

The Millers Forge Vista Shedding Blade seen here is a quick and easy way to rid yourself of a big problem that plagues many dog owners – dog hair everywhere! This shedding blade has proven to be the easiest method for removing loose hair that would otherwise end up on the furniture, on your clothing, in the car and anywhere else you allow your pet to go. You simply stroke your dog's fur as you would with a brush, starting at the head and moving down to the tail. Don't forget to get the hindquarters and to continue all the way down the legs. Matted fur will likely need to be cut off using a pair of scissors, and once done with the shedding blade, it's a good idea to give your pet the once-over with a slicker brush. This will smooth out the fur, remove any remaining loose hairs and help distribute body oils throughout the dog's coat.

It's Almost Too Easy!

This Vista Shedding Blade has sharp, saw-like teeth arranged in an oblong loop attached to a strong handle. The metal is stainless steel, so no worries about it rusting or tarnishing and, although the teeth are sharp, it's unlike other shedding blades that are more like big razors. Most dogs tolerate use of this shedding blade well and many, in fact, enjoy the process. There's no question that the timely removal of pet hair that would otherwise be shed all over your living space is highly beneficial to everyone.

Since this tool performs exceptionally well at removing large amounts of loose hair, it's best to do the deed outdoors if possible. Try taking your dog far from the house on a breezy day if possible. You'll be amazed at how much hair you'll get off your pooch. Shake off the accumulated hair from your shedding blade in between each stroke. The recommended frequency for brushing is once or twice weekly. Following this schedule, you should immediately notice significantly less hair in your home, in the car and on your clothing. Another benefit that many equestrian enthusiasts have discovered with this large Vista Shedding Blade is how well it works on their horses. It removes hair and brings a sheen to their coats.

Clotrimatop (Clotrimazole 1%) Solution Product Spotlight

Clotrimatop, a 1% Clotrimazole solution is typically prescribed for dogs suffering from different forms of fungal growth and it's found that these particular fungi are responsive to this drug. It's a proven, effective anti-fungal solution in any number of applications and has been used with a high degree of success on human patients as well as animals.

Clotrimatop has received rave reviews from many patients who have found relief from the incessant itching, burning, cracking and general discomfort that typically accompany symptoms of fungal growth on different parts of the body.

Clotrimatop is available in a 30mL plastic drip bottle and is recommended especially for animals with dermatological problems due to fungal growth, particularly in the ears. In humans, it's been shown to work on ringworm, jock itch and athletes' foot. Unlike the prevalent creams sold on the market for jock itch and athlete’s foot, this liquid solution actually works because it's able to seep down and act on the areas being affected.

One patient who wrote in describing her experiences stated that she had been suffering from ear fungus for a number of years, even though she had sought a variety of different treatments. Using the Clotrimatop 1% solution the first few times caused a certain amount of discomfort because her ears were literally raw from being rubbed and scratched so much. After that, though, there was no more pain, no more scratching or rubbing, and the ear infections cleared up within a month's time.

If you have itchy ears, especially as the result of ear fungus, you really owe it to yourself to give this product a try. As one gentleman stated, "I know it's for dogs, but fungus doesn't discriminate." If you look, you'll find that many of the anti-fungal remedies sold for use on humans contain some of the same ingredients found in Clotrimatop. Because this is a product directed for use on dogs, the price is significantly lower than the one for the "human" medicine.

Clotrimazole seems to work well on dogs and humans, too. Offered by Butler Schein™ Animal Health, this is a recommended product.
