I have been getting lazy with Mr. Pug’s medicine routine and am trying to get back on track. It’s nice to have a healthy Pug and I don’t want to fall back into bad habits.
Here’s the schedule I just made for myself (again):
- Put a steroid pill (Prednisone) in his morning food.
- Put in eye drops at night.
Twice a Week
- Clean his ears with cotton balls and medicated ear wash.
- Clean his face with medicated face wash.
- Bathe him with a medicated shampoo.
- Spray him with a liquid topical spray if he has flare-ups.
Hopefully I’ll stay on track so he never has to go back to the very expensive pet dermatologist. I just get so tired of the constant work, you know? I’ve already been stretching myself too thin with blogging since I’m trying to grow it into a freaking empire that Ican live off of in a year or two, so the extra daily medicine delivery chores seem even more tedious.
It doesn’t help that Mr. Pug still hates each and every one of the meds and still tries to eat everything that can basically kill him, but he is a dog…
How do you keep up with your pet routines?
It has been 19-25 degrees around Houston, TX at night lately and I have seen some pets still suffering around town.
Here are some ideas on what to do with your pets when it is feezing outside:
1. Bring them inside for the nights at least.

Here’s proof that absolutely anything can happen in the world of pet ownership:
A friend of ours, Ashley, owns 2 dogs. The first one is a very sweet Rottweiler named Mandy and the second is a cute, little Pug named Mr. Zippy (here’s the post with his pic). I actually introduced our friend to Pughearts where she got . . . → Read More: Anything Can Happen with Pets
Mr. Pug is still on all of the medications and ointments that I mentioned before, but he is looking and acting like a whole new Pug. Woot!
Maybe $300-$500 a year on maintenance drugs will be worth it after all!

When hubby and I go out of town, my in-laws completely spoil take care of Mr. Pug and Miss Doxie. They really do take excellent care of them and spoil them to boot, so I am overjoyed. I just don’t think the dogs miss us much, lol. I thought that would bother me, but . . . → Read More: I Don’t Think They Really Miss Us

We do not buy presents for Mr. Pug or Miss Doxie. I figure they just don’t understand, so it seems silly. My little ones do get a lot more veggie scraps to eat around the holidays since we cook more than usual, but that is about it.
This year, there was a special on Amazon.com for some . . . → Read More: Do You Buy Christmas Gifts for Your Pets?
Mr. Pug sounds like a gremlin on crack if you start ruffling the hair around his ears. It’s absolutely hilarious! He also makes funny barking/purring noises when he’s frustrated or super excited. I have never heard these noises from other dogs.
Does your pet make any funny sounds?
