As mentioned in the previous post about testing the Marp dogfood, simultaneously with Marp we started to test other brand of dogfood – Doxneo Duck. We are testing two different dog foods because we have at home three different breeds of two different sizes and any of them has special requests.
Doxneo is also relatively new brand to the Czech market. It is a holistic dog food (grain-free) for reasonable price to me.
Ingredients: duck meal, potatoes, peas, beans, duck fat, salmon meal, flaxsee, beet pulp, eggs, vegetable oil, minearals, brewer’s yeast, chicory root, carrots, herbs (hip, sour apple, bedstraw, blueberries, rhubarb, garlic, birch bark, alfalfa, nettle leaves, dandelion root, egyptian chamomile, hawthorn leaves, juniper berries, nutshells, anise), vitamins.
The protein content is 28 %, fat 16%, fiber 4 %.
After almost two month of testing I may say we are contented with the food, skin and hair in excellent condition and the dogs happy :).
We started to test two new brands of complete dry dog food. In this post I’m presenting the first one – Czech brand Marp produced in England. If it makes sense for me, I always try to choose Czech or European brands.
We have chosen the Natural product line, the recepture Farmland with duck meat. The decision took me a long time because the last time I changed the dog food it had bad impact for the hair because of a low fat content.
Ingredients: dryed duck meat, potatoes, peas, beet pulp, poultry fat, rewer’s yeast, flaxseed, vitamins a nd minerals. I mainly like the ingredients except closer non-specified poultry fat.
The protein content is 26 %, fat 12%, fiber 4 %. By choosing the food I was affraid a little of the relatively low fat content and relatively high fiber. After a month and a little I may say I’m pretty contented with the new food and also the dogs. The skind and the hair seems to be in an excellent condition.
The ear cleaning is an regular procedure in Ambershades. We usually clean our dogs’ ear once a week or more ofthen if necessary. We prefer to use oil-based cleansers for ear wax dissolution. The alcohol-based cleansers often dry the inside of the ear too much and cause itching.
Before the cleaning procedure it is necessary to remove excess hair from the ear canal mechanically. More than one year I had been thining of purchasing an ear depilatory powder from Bio-Groom. Finally, last Thursday I bought it and we tested it last weekend.
The small bottle with aplicator contains white powder. You have to sprinkle the powder inside the ear canal, rub a little the ear from outside and then remove the excessive hair mechanically with fingers or the ear tweezer.
I was surprised pleasantly with the result – using the depilatory powder helped me to catch better the hair inside the ear (which usually slips), it was easier to tear the hair (and probably less unpleasant for the dogs) and it helped me definitively to remove most of the hair compared to just tearing without powder. Due to information on package the powder contains substances which help to keep the ear canal dry. I’m contented with this product.
