9:16 am
hello, dr. ruth. >> hi. how are you? >> i'm great, thank you. okay. i have two beautiful rescue dogs. what should i be looking for when i feed my dog or if i have a kitty, my cat? >> well, there is three main things i recommend people look for when choosing a pet food. the first is to make sure your pet food meets the nutritional levels established by the association of american feed afco. the second is make sure you pick a brand that's made by a reputable company, one with a proven track record for quality and safety. and then the third thing is to look for a product that a dog or cat food that's made with quality ingredients. >> that's excellent advice. thank you. i know it can be kind of difficult when you're in the store or the pet store and navigating those labels. so thanks for establishing those
9:17 am
grain-free diet. tell me a little bit about that. >> well, grain-free diets are very popular right now because of the fact that there are many animals that actually have allergies or intolerances to grains. and for those animals being fed a grain-free diet can really help improve their digestive or skin problems that are due to those grains. >> interesting. okay. are these grain-free foods, i mean, will i find them the shelves? are they out there? are they available? my second question is, are they expensive? >> great question. it used to be that if you were gonna find a premium grain-free pet food, you had to go to pet specialty stores. and they were more expensive. but now adays the great thing is that supreme source grain-free pet food is actually available at local grocery stores and it's
9:18 am
>> interesting. okay. so i know that when you change over a pet's food, there is this strategy to transitioning them slowly. do you have any advice if you're gonna switch over to grain free? >> yes. great advice. it is very important that when people do switch food that they do so slowly. you want to actually transition over a seven to ten-day period so that your pet does not have any digestive upset. >> it's interesting, you mentioned that some animals experiencing skin problems. i have a lot of dogs in my neighborhood in my life who have heavy allergies. do you think that this could benefit some of those animals? >> yeah. there is a number of different things that cause allergies. so allergies actually can be inhalant allergies or they can be food allergies. we know that many dogs actually have allergies or intolerances to grain, specific grains like
9:19 am
and rice. and so that's really why these diets have become more popular. i will say that supreme sort grain-free pet food is a complete and balanced diet. so it's something you can feed all dogs. but if you do have a dog that has an allergy to grains, it is something that's gonna really benefit them and you may see improvement in those digestive problems or skin problems. >> thanks for giving the heads up about this. it's very interesting. i think a lot of people are really paying a lot more at their pets these days. isn't that true? >> they are. that's a good thing. people love their pets and they want the best for them. and so it's good that people are paying attention. if people want more information, they can go to grainfreepetinfo.com. and read more about it. >> you feed this food to -- i believe you have a boxer. is that right? >> i do i have a boxer.

welcome back to the blend. we all work hard to keep our credit score at a decent number. the number itself may not be as important as you think. now i'm totally confused. judah zakalik is here, peters and associates is here to explain. welcome back, sir. so much is being said about your credit score. everyone is saying it's so important. you have to make sure -- over 700, you'll be good. is there one credit score? >> no. there is hundreds of them. yeah. first of all, know >> why? >> because people need to make money. i guess people need to make money or there is different review processes for different kinds of credit. so for instance, a car loan or a home loan or unsecured debt. all these have different factors that they look at. >> so they're not all the same. >> they're not all the same. >> they all sort of factored in the same? >> no. some creditors, some potential lenders look at some credit scores differently than others.
9:24 am
others. >> so they go to different numbers? >> yeah. they go to different numbers. you've heard of the fico score. there is well over 60 fico scores. >> there we go. just in case if you would like to sing a song later. so there is different credit scores. they all are a different numbers like 850 might be good on one, but then the other one might go up to 1,000? >> it can range from 550 to 750 and some of those numbers, although they're different numbers, can actually mean the same whether you can get a loan or whatever your interest rate is going to be. >> there is a lot being said about the importance of a credit score. people are like you have to have a credit score over a certain number. this is the most important number of your life. is that the case? >> no. what's more important is actually the meat of your credit report. >> the actual report. >> 'cause the number is just like the number. >> the number is like anything. it's an index that kind of gives you a general outlook on how you are going to be as a debtor. but if someone is interested in lending you money, they're going to look more in-depth at your
9:25 am
have you been paying on time? how long ago did you have that derogatory mark? things like that. the meat and potatoes is much more important than the score itself. >> 'cause a lot of times they make you buy the credit score. but you can get an annual one on your own. >> yes. >> not free. >> no, it is free. >> it's free? >> but don't go to free. >> no. >> not free. >> just annual credit reports. the government web site, free and secure. you can get your credit score or the actual report from all three >> if you pay attention to the meat and potatoes, then all of a sudden the number will go higher if you focus on the issues. >> the most important thing first is to get out of debt. that's the most important thing. >> i do find, when you pay off your debt, your score goes up. i had a 560 and i had $800 in debt, i was poor as could be. >> that's a lot. >> it's a lot. wow. i had like no money. i paid off the $800. and it went up to like 660. >> right. >> i'm like wow. >> you can get better interest
9:26 am
can build your life. so i need people to understand that good credit is a good thing, of course. but credit is a tool just like anything else. sometimes good credit helps you save money. sometimes you need to sacrifice your credit to get out of debt so you can improve your contribute. it's like two steps back, take one step forward. >> i think people get worried when it's a bankruptcy. they're like i'm not going to be able to buy something for 20 years. not the case. >> not the case. normally a couple years. bankruptcy is not the only way to handle it. the first thing is understand yeah, you ha debt before you can start becoming financially stronger so more lenders will lend to you. >> if lenders aren't lending to me, what can i do? >> first, get out of debt. that's the first issue. second, you need to review the credit report to make sure it's showing up accurately. >> a lot of them don't show up accurately. >> a lot of lenders will -- yeah, have incorrect information on there or maybe it's intentional. maybe it's just by accident. but it's your job and responsibility to pull your
9:27 am
review it line by line. if you need help with that, lawyers can provide that help. we provide that help. there is other companies that provide that help. but if there is inaccurate information, we can fight it legally. we can get it removed free of charge. no charge to do it. in fact, we can actually maybe put some money in your pocket if they don't remove it quick enough. that helps you get out of debt, too. or become more credit worthy. so it's first important to review the credit report. clear up inaccuracies. things that are accurate ca be legally removed. so there is some companies that will advertise if you pay us, we'll get this bankruptcy removed or foreclosure removed. legally you can not do that. >> if you owe it, you know it. >> if they're being accurate, it's accurate. and if you're contesting it, perhaps you're committing fraud if you're not doing it correctly. so you have to be very careful. >> that could be expensive. and the other thing to keep an eye out for is the zombie debt. stuff that gets sold from another collection to another. and they open it like you just

9:32 am
doing what it's supposed to. shuts off properly if something malfunctions. that's basically what we're checking. >> shutting off properly if it malfunctions. what are some of the major issues that come up at this time of year, we're approaching winter. so we're really rebooting the system and making sure it's ready to go? >> i run no a lot of blower motors that go out, control boards, igniters, pressure switches, duct work falling apart. there is a lot of things we run into. >> how fast they mr. these new homes, especially the duct it were. >> yes. >> the thing about duct work, it's all behind the walls, right? >> yes. >> it's that problem you hope isn't there, but you really can't see it. >> exactly. >> the one thing with the furnace people assume furnace is always hot air. but it's working during the summer as well. the blower motor is helping the cold air get up there. >> yes. it's constantly going.
9:33 am
>> you definitely want to get it annually. make sure you check it at least once a year, 'cause we're also cleaning it and -- so it's more than just check to go make sure it's there. it's a pretty thorough inspection. it should take between 45 minutes and an hour to go through the system and check all the safeties and things like that. >> and what are some of the issues that come up when you do this check before winter? are there certain things that need to be replaced? are there filters involved? you can tell how much i know about this. but i'm the perfect idea. i'm the homeowner who do doesn't have a sense of what you're going to check. >> sure. sometimes it's something simple like it needs to be cleaned. other times we'll swap out a part. like if an igniter is starting to go bad, then it's going to cause the flame to be more sporadic and less efficient and then that can overheat other components and then -- so it digresses from there. >> there is an open flame in
9:34 am
you should take care of that. >> do you know what's going on with your igniter? >> and the fact that you guys are able to bend the crevice where is they are. you're the one going up there, right? >> yes. >> i don't know how do you it. incredible. >> so speaking of robert, i'm glad you brought him up. one thing about alaskan that is very notable is that you guys have amazing reviews online. really strong reviews. we have a screen shot, i believe, of your yelp reviews. and i went on to yelp and i was i found a review i thought was pretty interesting. this is by a guy named mike s. he's here in las vegas who happened to mention our friend robert here. here is what he said. he said, our service technician, robert h, could not have been more friendly, polite and professional. he was extremely knowledgeable and even helped to make sure we had a better understanding of what needed to be done. bravo. bravo. >> here is the thing, you know as well as i do, miserable
