Four Signs Of A Good Business Owner

Becoming a business owner is something that not everyone wants to do is capable of achieving. It takes a certain person to be a business owner, and you also need to have the right business idea in order to get your company off the ground. Here are four signs of a good business owner to see if you have what it takes.

You Listen To Your Staff

A clear sign of a good business owner is someone who doesn’t have any trouble with listening. Being able to listen to your staff is important because it ensures you are taking everyone’s opinions in and you’re being present for them in their time of need. Being able to listen, rather than to simply talk over people is important, and it can help in many situations in business. By being a good listener, you’re showing respect and appreciation for everyone you deal with, no matter what their role or influence may be. Try to embrace being a better listener where you can, and if you’re finding it hard, then you need to acknowledge where you’re going wrong. You might be someone who talks too much that it’s hard for anyone else to get a word in edgeways. Try to pull yourself up on that where and when you can.

Willing To Take Risks

With all business owners that are successful, they take risks. From senior care franchise owners to owners of a retail stores, if you’re not willing to take risks for the sake of the company, then you might never grow or develop in the way you were hoping to. Risks are always going to be a matter of accessing the pros and cons of taking that risk and then trusting your gut. Some risks don’t pay off, but some could certainly do a lot for your company.

Good Communication

Communication is always going to be an important part of your business, and you must be willing to communicate effectively not only with your staff but also any suppliers or clients you have. Good communication is good to really pay off when it comes to getting things done, and sometimes a lack of communication can cause mistakes. These are mistakes you definitely don’t want to be having when it comes to your company because it could hinder how well your business does in general.

You Can See The Bigger Picture

Being able to see the bigger picture is important. Knowing where your business is going and where you want it to be in the next five years is an example of that, and so you have to be willing to adapt and change with the times. It can be hard to keep up with how much industries can change within the space of a few years, but it’s all relevant to stay reputable and within the spotlight.

Your business needs a good business owner and leader. That’s something that takes certain skills and criteria, so work at it if you lack it in some areas.

Southampton 0 Arsenal 2

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta remains hopeful that his side can qualify for Europe this season after they won their first game since the restart of the Premier League at Southampton. The Gunners had lost both of their previous two games, to Manchester City and Brighton, but Thursday’s victory arrests the slump, moving them up to ninth in the table. Champions League qualification looks unlikely, but with Manchester City’s involvement in Europe still up in the air pending their appeal against a ban for breaching financial fair play, Arteta’s side could well claim a Europa League spot.

The Gunners were helped along their way at St Mary’s by a dreadful error from Southampton goalkeeper Alex McCarthy who faltered under pressure from Eddie Nketiah following a back-pass, allowing the striker to intercept his attempted ball out slot into an unguarded net. The win was sealed late on when Jack Stephens was sent off for fouling Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as the last man and from the resulting free-kick substitute Joe Willock finished after Alexandre Lacazette’s free-kick struck the wall and his follow-up was parried. It was timely boost for the Gunners, who have struggled with injuries and form since the restart. The victory, though, was not undeserved. Prior to the goal, Nketiah had seen a close-range finish ruled out for offside and Aubameyang had crashed an angled effort against the bar.

Coming after such an impressive display in their first game back at Norwich, the result continues Southampton’s woeful inability to replicate their away form at St Mary’s. This was their 10th loss at home this season – equalling the club record for a Premier League season, set back in 1993-94 when their were 42 games in a campaign. With 10 points separating them and the bottom three it is very unlikely that they will get dragged into a relegation fight. Goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, in for the injured Bernd Leno, was solid, Granit Xhaka returned effectively in midfield and Nketiah and Aubameyang were typically lively in attack.

Full-back Kieran Tierney, who has been hampered by injury problems since joining the Gunners from Celtic last summer, limped out of the game in the second half. Also, Matteo Guendouzi was left out of the squad entirely. While manager Mikel Arteta stated that his exclusion was down to “squad management”, he also did not entirely dismiss speculation that the Frenchman blotted his copybook by clashing with Neal Maupay at the end of the Brighton game on Saturday.

International Package Delays

One of the biggest problems due to Covid-19 related issues is the delay in getting packages and parcels delivered to you. Although local delivery, ie. India to India delivery is back to normal and has been normal for a while (for the most part though it does seem that some 3rd party sellers are still affected and cannot deliver to all parts of India). So for the most part Amazon India and Flipkart, which are the only two online websites that I purchase from, have been back to normal.

I place a lot of orders on Amazon India and a few on Flipkart. Since the sanctions of non-essentials were lifted I placed a few orders for toiletries like shampoo and deodorants and even some ointments plus some masks. Then I started looking for shirts on both Flipkart and Amazon IN and even managed to pick up a new 2 TB drive, earphones, some coffee mugs, bedsheets and just yesterday I got a new bluetooth speaker. So India wise we are all good, unless we go into another shutdown if the rumours are true. But where I am facing issues is my international orders.

As some of you may know by now I place a lot of orders for the dvds that I buy from Amazon UK and a few on eBay (either .com or .uk). Also I do get a few Funko Pops (my collection is now 7) that I place on them. What I was usually get within 2-3 weeks is now overdue even after a month. So far it is 2 of them but I have placed around 8 to 9 orders and I feel all of them will get delayed. I hope they don’t get delayed by too much longer.

What To Do If Your Flower Beds Look Nothing Like They Do In The Magazines

We would all love to own properties, surrounded by delectable beds, displaying row after row of beautiful flowers. But the reality is that for most of us, a concrete driveway with a few scrawny weeds growing through the cracks is about the best we can hope for. How did things get so bad? And why is it so hard for the average person to create flower beds that look like they do in the magazine?

A lot of it comes down to knowledge. Flowers will pretty much grow anywhere around your home, so long as conditions are right. All you need is a bit of know-how for what works and what doesn’t, and you’re sorted. The problem is that the majority of homeowners never take the time to consider their flower beds. They imagine they “just happen,” but they don’t. Coaxing nature to do what you want takes exceptional skill. Do your flower beds look nothing like they do in the magazines? Here’s what to do.

Research Your Flowers

You can’t just dump a bunch of bulbs into the soil and expect everything to come out flowering beautifully. Just like people, plants are very different from each other. Species have their own environmental and watering requirements. Anyone planning on creating a lush flower bed, therefore, must consider the specific needs of bulbs they plant first. Some species are hardy and robust and can survive pretty much anything, including a nuclear winter. Others require a little more care and can perish at the drop of a hat.

Sort Out Your Landscaping

Have you ever noticed that the best flower gardens also have excellent landscaping? It’s no accident. It turns out that the lie of the land is vital in constructing ideal beds that drain correctly. If you haven’t already, you may need to hire a landscaping company. Experts can arrange your garden optimally for flowers, preventing encroachment or competition from trees. They can also construct things like raised beds, which are ideal or some species.

Choose Showstopper Plants

We all know how we feel when we see a genuinely impressive flower garden. It takes your breath away. But you won’t achieve this effect with any old flowers, though. You need large flowers that create an immediate visual impact, preferably for long sections of the year.

Add Focal Points

A pure flower garden is a rare thing. Usually, garden designers combine them with various focal points that act as magnets for the eyes. “Anchoring,” as it is called, can help to bring out the colors and textures in your flowers, creating an even greater visual impact. Modern gardeners tend to prefer outdoor pieces of art. But you can stick with things like arbors or fountains if that’s more your style.

Select Complementary Flowers

Complementary flowers are two or more species that work together in a single bed. Some flowers actually thrive more when placed next to species that attract pollination. Other beds can benefit from rotating blooms, as one species yields to another, providing color year-round.

Arsenal Being Arsenal Again

Arsenal have confirmed David Luiz has extended his contract until the end of next season as loanees Cedric Soares and Pablo Mari will join permanently. Dani Ceballos, on loan from Real Madrid, has also signed a short-term extension to keep him at the club until the end of the 2019-20 season. It had been widely known when Pablo Mari and Cedric Soares arrived in the final days of the January transfer window that Arsenal hoped these deals would last longer than the remaining months of this season, elongated as that proved to be. There is an argument that that proved to be astute financial management and squad planning from Edu and Raul Sanllehi. Get Mari and Cedric in midway through the season to take a long look at them on and off the pitch and make an informed judgement from there.

If the players don’t hit the grade, all that has been lost is a few million in loan fees and wages. That is not insignificant at a time when finances are severely strained but better that than commit several years to players whose fit you cannot be sure of. Inevitably coronavirus changed things beyond all measure. Cedric has not started no games for Arsenal because he is not good enough or has failed to prove himself to Arteta. He is yet to feature because his periods of fitness have coincided with the lockdown. It will not be until the visit of Norwich to the Emirates Stadium on July 1, at the earliest, that he will be fit to feature.

Cedric may well end up playing more games than fellow January addition Mari, who is out until the end of the season with damaged ankle ligaments. The three month timescale could even sideline him for next. Arteta, though, was emphatic that his mind was already made up and that his decision would not be changed after someone took a blow “defending our club”. Just great! Our former rivals are strengthening their squad and we are being the same stupid Arsenal. What a shambolic situation this club is in. Run by spineless morons.

Medical Businesses Face Massive Challenges In A Post COVID-19 World

It’s fair to say that the coronavirus crisis has put the entire world economy through the wringer. However, some industries are being impacted more than others. Here are the challenges for the medical world right now.

Social Distancing

It’s clear based on scientific research and government stances that social distancing is the key way to beat the virus and prevent the spread. It’s also apparent that social distancing will need to remain in some form until a vaccine is readily available. This prevents challenges for any business or organization where people are in close proximity for long periods. That’s particularly true for medical businesses. From waiting rooms to examinations it seems almost impossible to effectively maintain social distances. However, there are steps to take here and many medical businesses are using technology to widen the gap. Examinations, for instance, are being completed through video calls. It remains to be seen whether this can provide the same accurate info as before. You can learn more about social distancing on

High Demand And Long Waits

Visits to the emergency room and the hospital fell sharply through the lockdown. This was likely due to people fearing that they would catch the disease in the waiting room or potentially when speaking to a doctor. Due to this, there are now massive numbers of people who need everything from check-ups to full treatments. It has led to massively long wait times for patients who need treatment. That’s why it will be important to maintain a high level of efficiency when running a medical business. Again tech can help here but now is the worst possible time to have team members that are not performing effectively. These individuals will need to be replaced without delay.

Low Levels Of Supplies

Throughout the COVID-19 crisis reports emerged that hospitals and medical businesses were lacking everything from PPE to ventilators. There were fears that hospitals were going to run out due to the expected massive level of demand. While this fear did not become a full reality, there was certainly pressure and many medical businesses that we’re seeing lower levels of demand donated their PPE equipment. Businesses like this will now need to work to build back up their supplies and ensure that they can provide the right solutions to their patients. Companies like will be essential services here to ensure that medical businesses are equipped with everything they need.

A New Lockdown

Finally, it is possible that we will be plunged into a second lockdown without much warning. Governments have already warned that this could occur at the drop of a hat if cases begin to surge once more. Medical businesses will need to be prepared for this and make sure that they have the right measures in place to deal with that possibility. This does mean that the business model needs to be flexible enough to adapt.

We hope this helps you understand some of the key challenges that the medical business industry is going to face over the next few months and even the next few years.

RIP Joel Schumacher

Joel Schumacher, costume designer-turned-director of films including “St. Elmo’s Fire,” “The Lost Boys” and “Falling Down,” as well as two “Batman” films, died in New York City on Monday morning after a year-long battle with cancer. He was 80. Born in New York City, the son of Marian (née Kantor) and Francis Schumacher. His mother was a Swedish Jew, whereas his father was a Baptist from Knoxville, Tennessee, who died when Joel was four years old.  Schumacher studied at Parsons The New School for Design before earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. He moved to Los Angeles, where he began his media work as a costume designer in films such as Woody Allen’s Sleeper and Interiors and developed his skills with television work studying towards a Master of Fine Arts from University of California, Los Angeles.

Schumacher’s first screenplay was for the musical drama Sparkle in 1976, which Schumacher had developed with Howard Rosenman before moving to Los Angeles. He also wrote the screenplays for the 1976 low-budget hit movie Car Wash, 1978’s The Wiz—an adaptation of the stage play of the same name—and a number of other minor successes. His film directorial debut was The Incredible Shrinking Woman in 1981, which starred Lily Tomlin. The Brat Pack films St. Elmo’s Fire and The Lost Boys were two of Schumacher’s biggest hits. Their style impressed audiences and their financial success allowed studios to trust him with ever-larger projects. He stated in the director’s commentary for St. Elmo’s Fire that he resents the “Brat Pack” label, as he feels it misrepresents the group.

Schumacher directed two adaptations of John Grisham’s novels: The Client (1994) and A Time to Kill (1996). Grisham personally requested that Schumacher return to direct A Time to Kill. Schumacher replaced Tim Burton as the director of the Batman film franchise when he directed Batman Forever in 1995. Val Kilmer replaced Michael Keaton in the title role. Despite a mixed critical reception, the film scored the highest-grossing opening weekend of 1995. It finished as the second-highest-grossing film of the year in North America, and sixth-highest worldwide. After this success, Warner Bros. hired Schumacher to direct a sequel, Batman & Robin, which was released in 1997. The film did not perform as well at the box office as its predecessors, and was critically panned; it is frequently considered to be one of the worst films ever made.

Schumacher decided to reinvent his career with darker, lower-budget fare like 8mm with Nicolas Cage, and Flawless with Robert De Niro. 8mm was entered into the 49th Berlin International Film Festival. In 2003, he released the controversial Phone Booth, in which he once again worked with Farrell. The film—about an unseen gunman tormenting a publicist—was also delayed for months due to the Beltway sniper attacks. It received generally positive reviews, earning a 71 percent “Fresh” rating on the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. Buoyed by Farrell’s recently found fame, the film earned $98.7 million worldwide.

He directed a film version of the musical The Phantom of the Opera in 2004, an adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s original stage musical. Despite mixed reviews, the film earned $154.6 million worldwide (Schumacher’s biggest hit of the 21st century to date) and was nominated for three Academy Awards, as well as three Golden Globes, including Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.

Schumacher directed The Number 23 in 2007, which was a critical flop but a moderate financial success. His next project was the vampire thriller Blood Creek, which was filmed in the spring of 2007 in rural Romania. It had a limited release. In October 2011, Schumacher released his latest film, Trespass. The action-thriller reunited Schumacher with stars Nicole Kidman and Nicolas Cage. Schumacher was openly gay throughout most of his career.

WWE Legend Undertaker Retires

WWE wrestling star The Undertaker has received an outpouring of support on social media after saying he had “no desire to get back in the ring”. The 55-year-old, whose real name is Mark Calaway, said in a recent documentary that there was “nothing left for [him] to conquer”. His words suggest plans to retire after a career spanning three decades. But neither Mr Calaway nor the WWE have formally announced his retirement from the league. The Dead Man, as he is nicknamed, made the comments during the new WWE biopic The Last Ride. He spoke about his most recent match against wrestler AJ Styles, which ended with him burying his opponent and riding away on a motorcycle.

He said he would consider returning for one last match, but that “only time would tell”. Mr Calaway has been a multiple world heavyweight champion, six-time tag team title holder and winner of the Royal Rumble. He began his career with World Class Championship Wrestling in 1987, and moved to the WWE in the 1990s as a final member of Ted DiBiase’s Million Dollar Team. Mr Calaway is also known as a WWE pioneer. He was part of the first Casket Match at Survivor Series in 1992, the first Buried Alive match in 1996 and the inaugural Hell in a Cell match in 1997. Despite enormous popularity, however, he has not chosen to follow superstars like John Cena or Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson into movies. He told the BBC last month that he “had opportunities to do so” but had decided against it.

On Sunday, he tweeted a clip from The Last Ride and wrote “you can never appreciate how long the road was until you’ve driven to the end”. His revelation has prompted a wave of supportive messages on social media, using the hashtag #ThankYouTaker. AJ Styles said he would be “honoured” if their fight had been The Undertaker’s last. There has been speculation in previous years about his retirement. In 2017, after losing a match to Roman Reigns, Mr Calaway dropped his iconic gloves, hat and trenchcoat in the middle of the ring before walking backstage.

Although to be fair in the wrestling world retirements are seldom certainties so we might see him again.

Almost 9 To 9

Well this was the week when it was supposed to be normal. Finally I got the shift that we all crave and hope we get and usually don’t when we work directly for one of the projects that is in an international BPO. 9 am to 6pm or in this case 9:30 am to 6:30 pm which is almost the same. The much coveted, golden price, the Wimbledon of the shifts, the Stanley Cup of them all, the World Cup of the the work shifts!

I had such images of me singing “it’s a five o’clock world when the whistle blows” or Dolly’s “Workin’ 9 to 5, what a way to make a livin'” (again I know it’s not a 9-5 8 hour job but still it’s close enough) and dancing all the way to doing things I love and maybe even watching a movie. I might still get to do that in the upcoming days but it wasn’t the way things unfolded yesterday.

This is because to two 30 minutes or less (as per the invites) calls that extended to 45 minutes each yesterday. So by the time I ended the calls and shut off the system it was 8:45 pm. Where did my evening go? I then had to quickly order some chilli chicken (Indo-Chinese cusine) and waited for the 25-30 minutes before it reached me and I went down to the lobby to collect it.

I did not manage to watch the movie but instead by 10:45 pm put on episode 1 of season 2 of the X-Files but fell asleep quite quickly. I dunno why but I keep falling asleep quickly during these shifts.

Retro Electronics That Instantly Make You Feel Nostalgic

The moment Apple introduced the iPhone in 2007 marked a watershed. Everything that came before would eventually fall into the “retro” category and look funky, fun, and reminiscent of youth. And everything that came after it was hip and trendy. Perhaps one day, the iPhone X will be viewed as a weird throwback, but it seems unlikely.

For many of us, retro electronics remind us of better times. We had so much fun on our old game consoles or digital cameras; it’s easy to forget how limited these products were compared to their newer counterparts.

Do any of the following retro electronics make you feel nostalgic?

The Tamagotchi

Does anyone remember the Tamagotchi? In the late 1990s, it was a massive trend. All of a sudden, technology allowed developers to whittle down a games console to something that was the size of a key fob. Happy punters were able to spend hours of their week, meticulously feeding their digital critters, ensuring they had plenty of food and stayed healthy and happy. It was the ultimate gimmick, and yet it was something that everyone seemed to love. It really was a craze and a part of the cultural zeitgeist.

The Original Gameboy

When Nintendo released the Original Gameboy, it was a massive moment in video gaming history. Other companies had tried to do something similar before. But it was the Japanese console giant that nailed it first.

The device only had eight distinct buttons on the front, but that didn’t seem to matter. In fact, it was the simplicity that made it so compelling. Furthermore, it wasn’t limited to a single game. Just like the NES, you could pop in whatever cartridge you liked and get gaming. It was all exhilarating.

Perhaps the most impressive game of the time was Super Mario Land. The version, adapted from the console, was black and white, but that didn’t matter. Each of the twelve levels was a massive challenge, and the 8-bit score was inspired.

The Disposable Camera

In the 1990s, you couldn’t go on holiday without a travel keyboard and a disposable camera. Remember, back then, the expense of a regular camera was simply enormous. It just wasn’t economical for the vast majority of tourists to invest in them, especially when the risks of travel were so high. Most people, therefore, just popped down to Boots and picked up a throw-away version alongside their sunscreen.

The Sega Saturn

Are you still mourning over the downfall of the Sega Saturn? If so, you’re not alone. Even to this day, people wish that the console had been able to go the distance.

Sega, unfortunately, had two problems. The first was the price of the console itself. The company was asking people to shell out a tremendous amount of money for something that online offered marginal performance improvements over the competition. And, second, it just wasn’t able to attract enough developers. After all, that’s how it made the vast bulk of its money. The Saturn, therefore, died a death but was legendary at the same time.

Brighton 2 Arsenal 1

Neal Maupay scored the winner five minutes into added time as relegation-threatened Brighton clinched a huge win over Arsenal, who once again lost a key player to injury. Maupay showed coolness and class to slot in his ninth and most important goal of the season to give Albion their first league win of 2020 and cap a remarkable comeback. Nicolas Pepe had fired the Gunners into a deserved lead with a superb curling shot with just over 20 minutes to go, but Lewis Dunk scrambled an equaliser over the line from close range to set up a barnstorming finish. Maupay’s winner was a sucker punch for the Gunners, who have now lost back-to-back games since the Premier League returned – results that surely make a late run to Champions League qualification very unlikely.

They may also have to navigate the rest of the season without goalkeeper Bernd Leno, who was taken off on a stretcher in the first half after landing awkwardly on his ankle following an aerial challenge with Maupay. Maupay’s role in the incident seemed to anger Leno’s team-mates, some of whom became embroiled in a shoving match with the striker at full-time. Leno will be sidelined along with defender Pablo Mari and midfielder Granit Xhaka, both of whom were injured in Wednesday’s 3-0 loss at Manchester City. There is no such negativity for Brighton, though. They appeared to come through the game largely unscathed and are now five points above the bottom three.

Pepe’s opener was a hammer blow, especially coming at a time in the game when the league’s three-month hiatus would have started to take its physical toll on the players. But they dug deep and found parity through Dunk, who took advantage of some Arsenal hesitancy to poke the ball in after it had ricocheted his way. Prior to that they had threatened rarely, with Aaron Mooy’s low first-half drive their best effort. They would have the final say, though, as Maupay gathered the ball from substitute Aaron Connelly before producing a deft, decisive finish.

Medical Marijuana for Dogs – Is That A Thing?

What do Pot, Weed, Blunt, Cannabis, Ganga, Dope, Grass, Blaze, Skunk, and Boom all have in common? Everything, they are variations of street names for Marijuana. The interesting about this one main name is that when people hear it they immediately associate it with something negative or put it in a box that connects it to a certain genre or personality type.

We on the other hand embrace the element to the fullest and bring to you what we known best as Medical Marijuana. And yes, it is a thing! And an exceptional one at that. Before you judge us, keep reading to see for yourself why this naturally occurring element has taken over the world by storm over the past few years both under the microscope and in products of all shapes and sizes. Not to mention just under 160 million people use Marijuana regularly.

There are several ways to use this ingredient, the most popular one is smoking it. However, when extracted into oil or powder, it has been added to existing food products and drinks, as well as tinctures, pills, creams, and everything under the sun.

Marijuana for Dogs in The Medical Spectrum

Synthetic drugs can help with many things but not all. Marijuana is also similar. It can help the human and animals’ body in many ways and in treating many ailments. A lot of reputable online sources have included tests and clinical trials with groundbreaking results, in their pages to prove how beneficial this one thing is when used according to specific dosages. Read some further information about this on this helpful website which also includes all the trials and tests that have been done as well as their results.

For anyone who is wondering what it can do for their pets. This magnificent plant has been shown, through research, to be highly beneficial to their ECS – Endocannabinoid System, and all 113 compounds found in too. Each one has a specific effect on the body so not all pets need all of them but they are there to make sure the entire system runs optimally.

The plus point here is that it is safe for both our four-legged friends and us. There is however one important aspect to consider. Because dogs are more sensitive than humans with regards to certain chemicals. Giving them Cannabis or Marijuana products with a dose of THC in it that’s more than 1% is not a good idea. THC is what’s responsible for the psychoactive high feeling that one gets when they smoke it.

The Cream of The Crop – CBD

Out of all the other chemicals in Marijuana, our information is targeted more towards the one that we are keen on and know works, which is CBD or cannabis, the extract of the plant. Even the WHO (World Health Organization) released a report stating that they have not seen any negative side-effects of those using it or any abuse thereof and calls is ‘generally safe’ The only known side-effects that have been seen are when people mix their existing prescription medication with it.

This is the cream of the crop! And it has all the good things in it that can give given to your dog for medicinal purposes. Some of these ‘good things’ it has been used for include:

  1. Pain relief
  2. Muscle relaxant
  3. Antitumor capabilities
  4. Helps reduce seizures
  5. Anti-Inflammatory
  6. Anxiety relief
  7. Arthritis inhibitor

To name a few.

Introducing It to Your Furry Companion

These above benefits are tried and tested benefits of this Marijuana extract – CBD. And although many trials are still being done see what else it can help us and our canines with, the conviction lies in the countless pet owner reviews and posts that you see online, stating how much this one substance has improved their pet’s life.  It’s a win-win for all.

Before you introduce it to them, make sure you but the good-quality and high-standard products come with a certificate and have dosage instructions direct from the FDA. Your vet can recommend one to you and if not, you can do some homework online yourself. Make sure it is a legitimate product made from a well-established company and brand.

When introducing it to them for treating a condition, always follow the manufacturers dosing. The general rule is to start with one or two drops or pills added into their food three times a day for the first 2 weeks, then minimize it to two pills or drops a day and then to just one. Don’t keep them on it for long periods if you are not treating anything. When you start seeing improvements, then you can tell everyone else about it!
