The Crazy Suburban Mom: Ginger gives Pedigree 4 paws and a tail up

Ginger gives Pedigree 4 paws and a tail up

Last night Ginger and I were watching TV in bed and having a philosophical discussion about free will versus determinism.

ginger and me 

We both made some valid points and then, I don't know... She starts in on Heisenberg's uncertainty principle (YES! AGAIN!) 

Pul-eeeze, Ginger! Not that old chestnut again.....  

 The next thing I know Ginger's dew claws are all in a bunch and she resorts to, Talk to the paw.  I take a header to the foot of the bed so I can get all up in her face, er snout..

But her breath stops me flat...

Close up Ginger 

Friend girl, do you have any idea how much better your breath is?

I hadn't thought about it till just then but her breath has been down-right fairly agreeable lately.  And in case 'fairly agreeable' doesn't sound impressive to you, it's the heaven's opening up and Angel's singing 'Ahhhh' compared to what it used to be... 

The only recent change is her switch to Pedigree Dog Food.  It's been a positive change in so many  ways but her breath was not something I expected improvement in so she's staying on Pedigree.  Her teeth are a major issue. 

Ginger's no spring chicken.  The vet has her down as age 16 (but it could even be 18 which would make her the anti-springchicken) and he doesn't want to knock her out to clean her teeth so she gets 'pulse antibiotic therapy.' The first few days every month she gets meds to keep the bacteria growth down.  Maybe if her teeth continue to improve she can stop the antibiotics all together. 

Ginger's time as an Ambassador for Pedigree is coming to a close and it's been great for her.  She's gone from a total homemade diet that she was not tolerating to almost entirely Pedigree.  She eats only Pedigree in the morning and in the evening I add a little cottage cheese. 

When I started Pedigree she was a week into an impressive bout of diarrhea (Think: tsunami).  Ginger's doody is just dazzling now (as doodies go).  

I went back and read my original post where I mentioned she needs a bath and looks flaky.  I just looked again; she still needs a bath but the flakes are way down. I wonder if I had given her a bath would the flakes be gone; know what I mean?  Is this just residual flakage from the old batch?

Feeding Ginger Pedigree Dog Food has been a total positive experience; from Ginger's improvement in so many areas to the fact that the bag is resealable. It's all been great.

Dear Pedigree,

Thank you so much for choosing me. Before I tried Pedigree Small Breed I was a bit of a mess at both ends. Now my teeth look cleaner and smell better and I have doody that would make a puppy jealous. 

And you can't beat good doody with a stick.  (Ask Dr. Oz)

I you,

I wrote this review while participating in an Ambassador campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Pedigree and received dog food to facilitate my reviews and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.

I think Ginger was an excellent spokesdog and representative for Pedigree! She may be the cutest rep EVER!! And if she has good poops, well, that just seals the deal!

ROCK ON, Ginger!

I just started my dogs on Pedigree and I'm hoping that they'll get the same results as your Ginger!! And, better poop-y would be a plus!! :)

Miss V, You said a mouth full!

Aricketts, She's done so well with it! And yes, better poopy is a huge plus!
