 We would be really grateful for any of our clients who have seen the benefits of any of our products - in particular the Burns or Natural Dog Foods, Dorwest Herbal Supplements and the Joint-Aid - to visit our web site to leave a review of these products so that others can benefit from their experiences.
Do you want a healthy and good looking pet but don't want to spend the earth? Check out the range from Applaws, Fish 4 Dogs, Natural Dog Food Company & Burns Pet Nutrition - not just very good foods at a very good prices but excellent hypoallergenic foods with no nasty additives! Less bulking agents means more goodness per measure and less to shovel up. You only feed 10g per Kg of weight of the average dog - 30%-50% less than many other brands. These are excellent quality foods formulated to provide all the nutrition your pet needs and avoiding ingredients and chemicals found in many other brands that often cause allergic reactions resulting in excessive scratching, nibbling and dry lifeless coats.
 Compare the overall cost per meal - NOT the price per bag!

Animal insecticide and parasite treatments contain a variety of chemical ingredients and you should be aware of what you are subjecting your pet to and the likely side effects.
Here we list various treatments with links to the information describing the constituents.
There are many treatments available, some only through vets or pharmacies, and they all have various levels of organophosphates or pyrethroids - often the same product under a different name - and we suggest that you "GOOGLE" the constituents or look them up on the wikipedia  web site. Forwarned is forearmed.
Remember that no matter how bad the chemical treatments sound the diseases they help to prevent may actually be worse!
Organophosphates are nasty and seem to be commonly used in the Algarve for agricultural purposes and if you suspect that your pet has been poisoned (unexpected shivering, shaking and nervousness) get veterinary treatment IMMEDIATELY
Scalibor Collar  (Dogs)
Note: Their datasheet is the only place we have seen that the collar should not be used with any other organophosphate  based insecticide even though, as far as we can tell, the only listed ingredient, deltamethrin, is a pyrethroid.
Their datasheet also mentions that you should not use this product if you are allergic to triphenyl phosphate  but this constituent is not included on their product label - presumably because they use it as a plasticiser and someone has not considered it to be an active ingredient. According to the US Department of Labour  this can cause muscle weakness and paralysis in animals and another pollution information site  indicates that this is a suspected neurotoxicant! Maybe this is also the masked link associated with the organophosphate issue mentioned above.
