I ordered the 8 oz. Crown Royale Condition Plus from Cherrybrook.com. I decided to give this a try after I ran out of the Lavender & Mint Buddy Rinse Conditioner. That was a mistake. This is stuff smells like someone’s grandmother’s perfume. Not my grandma, she smelled like fresh homemade tortillas :D. The conditioners’ smell is heavily floral and somewhat musky…it’s really odd. Then, Cherrybrook.com took 3.5 weeks to deliver the said conditioner and I had two email and call multiple times. Generally packages arrive in 3-5 weeks, but I never received an email stating any information other than I had placed an order. Don’t bother with Cherrybrook, unless you need specialized items, which looks to be their main service.

The following charge for $38.00 was from The Family Vet for a follow-up appointment. We made our way to Dr. Tran last month because Argos had some dry scaling skin on his back towards his tail. Turns out it was a skin infection. He was put on antibiotics and given fish oil supplements. On our follow-up appointment, his skin was clear and it was determined that dry skin was causing his skin chewing which must have let to the skin infection. I was glad to hear that. He is no longer on antibiotic but I’ve decided to keep him on the AllerG-3 fish oil capsules. It will continue to help Argos’s skin and maybe I can see some benefits reflected in his coat.

And last but not least, we purchased a 12 month supply of Revolution flea medication. This will lasts us until June and then it will be time to purchase another 12 months worth. I made the switch from Frontline to Revolution soon after Ellie came home from the Shelter because we noticed that her bum rashes were due to flea bites. Well it had nothing to do with flea bites but this Revolution is pretty phenomenal. While Argos was on Frontline, every week I used to pick out fleas from his coat during his bath…I thought it was normal until we switched to Revolution. I’ve haven’t seen a bug on him for almost a year.
