Shout-Out to the Kittehs: Best Litter, Paws Down

Tags All natural pet products, Cats, product testing

Ok, so this is not a product we carry, but we are considering adding a line of feline products... And since a lot of dog-lovers also have kitty-cats running around we thought this recommendation may be useful to you all. This is a plug for Feline Pine, or the knock-off version, Feline Fresh. We've tried all sorts of clay, clumping, newspaper and wheat litters, but these pine pellets are simply the best. We scoop the poops and the pellets sort of slowly disappear as the litter is peed upon. The natural whatever-is-piney about pine totally neutralizes the urine odor. No...


Why We Sell Whole Life Pet Products

Check out this video featuring Whole Life's owner, John Gigliotti, explaining the story behind their made in the USA dog treats. Many are single ingredient treats, and all are sourced from American farmers and fisherman. They disclose the sources of all their products, and add nothing artificial. Everything is freeze dried to perfectly preserve the foods without chemicals. While holding the inventory, they clear each batch with a safety check, and nothing gets released until it is known to be free of salmonella and other potential contaminants. You just won't find a higher quality treat. And you never have to worry about...


Probiotics for Cats and Dogs

If you've been wondering why your dog or cat has an upset tummy, diarrhea, offensive gas, or soft and stinky poops, then it might be time to consider using a probiotic. We happen to carry a hand-crafted, made-in-Maine Probiotic and Digestive Enzyme Blend. Joyce Belcher of Pet Wellness Blends crafts this probiotic with the highest quality, non GMO ingredients. This blend makes an awesome addition to raw and home-cooked diets for dogs and cats.   When my Yiayia's cat, Macio, had diarrhea, she took her to Vet and found that she had a parasite. But even after the parasite was cleared,...


Zymox for Ears

Over the years, Sophie (my boxador) has had quite a few ear infections, mostly due to yeast. In her case, she tends to develop them mainly after swimming. Out of all the treatments I've been been prescribed from the vet, these over-the-counter drops have been the absolute best treatment. At the first sign of a red or itchy ear, I put a few drops in and immediately see her relief. I usually continue for 2-3 days or until the redness is gone. I have also used Zymox for my cat when she develops that black, gunky earwax and seen the...


What to Feed Your Dogs and Cats?

This is perhaps the most important question regarding the health of our animals, because health begins with diet. If you're feeding Science Diet because your Vet has prescribed it, you may want to question what kind of a Vet you are using. Read the ingredients: cats and dogs did not evolve to eat corn and soy! The Vet who prescribes Science Diet is padding their income with sales of an inferior pet food product, and in my eyes, this is unacceptable. Your dog's dream dinner This is not to say that I haven't fed my dogs commercial kibble. It's just...
