We talk with Monica about her dog's pet allergies and behavioral problems, and her basement flooding problem. Monica has a 2 yr old mixed breed rescue pup that has developed food allergies and has been become aggressive towards squirrels and rabbits. Rick talks about his experience with pet allergies with his Cairn Terriers and how his vet is doing some interesting research. Eric tells of how they solved his Labrador's food allergy with a special prescription food, Royal Canin Selected Protein . Its not cheap, but it has saved Henry's life.
Basement flooding comes next, Monica tells of her basement flooding with heavy rains. She just had her basement floor re-poured, with french drains and a sump pump. This is the best solution, Eric thinks. The other thing you can do is put drains around the foundation wall footings, aka curtain drains. These are similar to french drains, but deep in the soil and outside the basement wall.
