Just popping in to say hi friends.


This little fur baby of mine has been under the weather for a few days. We discovered he had mites in his food...ick huh. Apparently it's not uncommon. They can come from the grain and can mature over time in the bag of food. Most dogs aren't allergic to them. Guess who is ~ Max.  I even buy him a GOOD quality food and it was in there. Go figure huh. So he's been getting lots of attention and even more lovin than usual. Who couldn't love this little guy...just look at that face and those sweet brown eyes.

I"ll be back tomorrow with a Dynamic Duos card. Have a delightful day! ~Lisa

Oh, poor little guy (cute, cute photo though). Give him a little smooch on the top of the head from me. I'm glad you found the source of the problem--now I'd better check the cats' food!

Poor Max! He is such a doll--I hope he gets well soon!!! That is just disgusting...how can you prevent mites from forming in the food?!

OHHH! Poor little thing! I've never heard of mites! Guess I will have to keep an eye out for them in Olsen's food. Give Max a hug from us! <3

awww, he looks so sad. ;( I've never heard of mites in dogfood. Hope Max feels better. My Chewie has those same melty eyes.

Oh no!! Poor Max! I've never heard of mites in dog food either. That is icky, indeed. I hope your little guy feels better soon. You just can't resist those sweet Schnauzer eyes. That's how my Emmitt gets away with his shenanigans most of the time. Haha! Hugs sent to little Max! :)

Aw, poor baby! That's disgusting, what he's been ingesting. No wonder he doesn't feel well.

Are his eyes blue?

Poor little guy! I hope he feels better soon! Love those brown schnauzer eyes!!!

I can totally commiserate with you on food allergies in our schnauzers. Lexi is allergic to quite a few things in most commercially processed dog foods. Like you, we also bought GOOD quality dog food and she had major issues. After running an allergy panel, we found out she is allergic to a broad spectrum of things (and mites are one of them) so she is now on a raw diet that has as few ingredients as possible. Our vets say she is a very "special" dog as they have never seen a dog with the gamut of allergies that she has. LOL
