    I’m sorry. I do not have any experience in breeding Shih Tzu’s. Just´╗┐ be patient and let nature take it’s course. Best wishes with your pregnancy !

    Hi there Sir, I have a female Shih Tzu and I am excited for her to be pregnant, according to the previous owner between December – February she should be in heat, but according to my Vet still no signs of my baby´╗┐ being ready. Is there any recommendations, like medications perhaps?

  4. Jim Thomas says:

    You may have to get some steroid from your vet… be sure that the vet has checked the´╗┐ dog for a yeast infection… once the dog has a yeast infection, they will ALWAYS have it and the infection can only be MANAGED with regular medicated shampoos and strict meat diet.

  5. Jim Thomas says:

    It may be something in your dogs environment like carpet or the type of shampoo. I now have our Shih Tzu on a totally meat diet of pork, beef and chicken that I cook med rare and store in little zip´╗┐ lock bags in the freezer. Then I add a oil supplement (from Walmart) to his food for his coat and grind up a single multi vitimine and sprinkle over a weeks worth of his food. Try and isolate the dog away from any fabric and maybe change bed material. Then try a different vet if no positive results.

    Is there any cream that can be used for a´╗┐ severe skin rashes on a ShihTzu

  8. Jim Thomas says:

    No, the yeast will not likely be entirely killed off by the cleaner and will eventually come´╗┐ back, but you should try and keep the dogs ears as clean and dry as you can (i sometimes use a hair dryer on LOW to help dry his ears extra good).. Someone once told me that a dogs ears can be cleaned with a little white vinegar with a couple drops of alcohol mixed into the vinegar., and the Ph of this mixture might disrupt the yeast as well. Best wishes and good luck !

    1 of my dogs has a really bad yeast infection in both of his ears. Do you think the´╗┐ pro sense ear cleaner you use in the video, could clear that all up?

    did not know about the Benadryl. Thanks for´╗┐ the info ­čÖé

    Thanks for the input. I had not heard about the chicken allergies. I’ll check the other Taste of the Wild with a fish base and try´╗┐ and exclude chicken from the next bag. Thanks again for posting !

    I noticed that the taste of the wild food had chicken listed as´╗┐ an ingredient. I heard that shih tzu’s are quite prone to chicken allergies. Might be worth looking into? Great video!
