August 2009 Newsletter
Hello Folks,
Welcome to My Favorite Groomer.  (I send out a mass email once a month only).


Summer is coming close to an end and as it is we are seeing many ear infections.  What to look for:  
yellow or dark red smelly fluid in the ear or chunks of gunk to remove.  Ear infections are smelly and need
to be treated asap.  Most of the time an ear infection comes from stagnant water in the ears from bathing
or a trip to the lake or just being out in the rain.  Treatment for an ear infection averages 175$ at your 
local veterinary office.  Contact me for the right flushing fluid that will help treat your problem as well as 
save you money.


I follow a low cost vaccination clinic on most weekend days and from 9-4 am I'm doing toe nail trims, ear 
cleanings, selling products, anal gland expressions and more.  Come to one of these if you need a 
regular toe nail trim or cheap vaccinations.  The calendar can be found at www.myfavoritegroomer.com 
orwww.vaccinateme.org .

Flea Problems and referrals:
I have everything you need for fleas, stop by for flea collars, flea spray, frontline, flea shampoo, and 
more.  Also, if you have time go to my meetup page and under "message board" there are resolutions 
listed in fighting fleas and what to do in your home for help. I have used  www.hometeampestdefense.com 
as my home spraying company for two years, they are great! (let em' know I referred you)
