    Ear mites, ear infection, or normal?

    Hi everyone! My little 8 month girl has had itchy ears with wax going all over the place as she scratches her ears with her nails. Sometimes she causes red marks to her face, and most of the time, she has wax on and around her ears and neck. I clean them every few days or once a week. I used to...

    Feeding Coconut Oil as supplement

    I know many use coconut oil for bath time, but I actually use it as a dietary supplement (and as a treat after they let me clean their teeth)! They LOVE it. One even sits on my bed and waits when he knows it's time for his teeth to be cleaned...because then it's coconut oil time! I'm very...
