Here's what Bowie and Greta, our Rat Terrier girls have to say about medicine and dietary supplements for your pets.

Good diet and exercise are extremely important for your dog's health. On other pages in this site we have discussed how some toys like kongs can benefit your dogs health by promoting healthy gums. Here we talk a little about dietary supplements and medicine for your dogs.


One of our Rat Terrier dogs (Greta) sheds. To help control her shedding, we feed her a "Shed Terminator" tablet every day. We don't have to break the tablet down to mix with food - she will eat these right out of our hand. We order these in plastic containers of 120 chewable tablets each.

Dietary supplement

In addition to shed terminator tablets, we also feed our dogs "Brewers Yeast" natural daily supplement tablets with omega 3 fatty acids.

Ticks and fleas

Ticks and fleas are both a great source of discomfort for dogs and also dangerous to their health and that of humans. We always check our dogs for ticks after taking them for walks and apply a deterrent on a regular basis.

Here are some links to these products on the Pet Med website - this is where we buy ours.
