Home Remedies for PONS: January





Bad  Breath
If bad breath is a problem for your PON, just mix some parsley in with his food once a day. Works for people too! A lot of times plaque is the culprit in causing your PON's yucky breath. Brush his teeth! Yes, PONS need to have their teeth brushed too


Wet PON Smell
Wet PON! You know... that icky smell from your PON when he comes in out of the rain? Next time, just grab a softener sheet and rub 'em down. Fresh as a daisy! 


Urinary Tract Infections
You've heard that cranberry juice works for  humans right? Well this old time remedy also works for your PON. Just mix 1 to 2 ounces of cranberry juice into your PON's food. This will boost the acidity of urine which will reduce bacteria and help relieve his discomfort. Please consult a vet if symptoms last more than a few days.


Itchy PON
Does your PON have an itch that he just won't let alone? Dab some apple cider vinegar onto the spot. That should take the itch away.


PON Food Bowls
Keep your PON's dishes from sliding around by putting them on top of a rubber mat. A super way to keep ants out of your PON's bowl? Just put his dish in a cake or pie pan of water


Driveway De-icer
All driveway de-icers are toxic to your PON's feet! The salt or chemicals in these ice melters may burn their little feet or cause a fungus. They may even lick their toes and get sores in their mouths. So... wash your PON's feet when they come in after a jaunt in the snow!
