"Downloads" refers to helpful PDF files that contain information relevant to your case.

None of these resources are intended to advise or shape the treatment plan of any individual or individuals who are NOT 'face-to-face' customers of Dr Erik Johnson's because THAT would be stupid. If he's not your Vet then you can't call for clarification or even know whether the information APPLIES to your pet. You could be treating heart failure with Robitussin and then wouldn't YOU feel like an ass?

Most of these were written by me. The ones that were NOT written by me contain their author, source, original publication date etc.

Omega Paw Elite Self Cleaning Litter Box Large (Not electric - Not $499 either. LOL)

There's another one of these that sometimes opens when you roll it. Oops! But this one is upgraded with thicker material and better clips. You just roll it and it cleans itself into a scoop inside. PATENTED SELF CLEANING SIFTING GRATE Separates waste from clean litter. It uses clumping litter. It's super-highly reviewed on Amazon. (Buy One Here for under $80)

Best Brush Ever

This is the best brush on the planet. This is the one I use on Ajax and I *did* used to use a Furminator - used to recommend that but for Ajax, it kinda grated on his elbows and knees. This is smoother and it CLEANS itself with the push of the button on the back the tines retract and then you just remove the mat of hair. They're cheaper than you'd think, too!

Amazon has them click here.

Similasan (Where to Buy)

I've recommended Similasan Allergy Eye since I heard about it from a colleague more than ten years ago. It "can't hurt" an ulcer but it can really soothe conjunctivitis. Is it "as good as real medicine"? Rarely. But it helps a TON. Any pet-parent first aid kit... Similasan Allergy Eye.

When you cant't use a steroid on a corneal ulcer - this is what you include in treatment plans to diminish redness and inflammation without vasoconstrictors.

Something else I found for my dog "Ajax" that's cool:

Sporn Dog Halter STOPS "pulling and tugging" NOW. (Link)

This is what I use now, with my dog Ajax. I used to use the Gentle Leader, but I didn't like including his face in the thing. Now, this just goes around his chest and he DOES NOT PULL ANY MORE. It's great! Amazon.com has it.

BABYLTRL Dog Cone Collar for After Surgery, Soft Pet Recovery Collar for Dogs and Cats, Adjustable Cone Collar Protective Collar for Small Medium Large Dogs Wound Healing

Anymore these days companies are NOT making cones that are long enough to protect feet, OR stop head shaking. You really just need a cone. And this is the most important part - YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO FIX IT TO THE COLLAR because NO CONE is tight enough to resist a back foot pushing on it. And they'll do it! (Buy The Right One on Amazon)
