    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?

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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!
