This sturdy foot washing cup (which comes apart easily and goes in the dishwasher when it’s time to look like new again), makes “washing” or “wiping” a dogs feet super easy and quite a bit more thorough. If your dog has atopy, and you’re already wiping the feet, you should consider these. These come from Amazon.com* and other places.
This item is from a company called Dexas Popware which is all that dog food dishes made of soft, colorful, silicone that flatten for camping and easy storage.
These are nifty little cups with built-in scrubbers that are individually sized for three kinds of dogs. Large medium and small. You put water in them and when your dog comes and you simply put his foot in the scrubber cups.
For dogs that lick their feet because they are allergic to things on the ground, it is considerably more thorough than using a baby wipe.
One of my clients showed me this, and she said, and I quote: “Its amazing and you can throw it in the dishwasher!!!!! Best thing I’ve purchased in a long time.”
The patient who sent me these pictures, uses this. She has a hand towel in the mudroom with these cups and dries the feet right after cleaning them. I thought they were pretty cool and would be especially useful for dogs that have atopy, and lick their feet throughout the spring and summer time.

I have over ten of these Titanium Heaters in my fish room and at home. They're a paradigm shift in aquarium heating. They're titanium and 400W for under $30! Whaaaaaaaaat?
CyroPro by Hikari is safe and easy for Anchor Worms and Fish Lice.
Whatever heaters you use, back yourself up with a temperature controller, it'll turn on, and off your heaters. If your heater seizes "on" at least the thermostat will stop a tragedy.
LifeGuard by Tetra is a tablet version of a tame 'chloramine-t' or 'halamid' compound that's easy to get and good on bacterial infections, in baths.
For me, filtration-of-choice
Rubber sided, round, nettable tanks
1200 Watt heater, on a thermostat held securely above the waterline, works GREAT as a large tank heater. That's all I'll say because there's risk of electrocution and all that. But then, even in a bucket you could get killed. Sound like fun?
