Last June I posted my first impressions of FleaHex, an all natural flea control product sold by Dr.Dobias. FleaHex is sold as a two part system that includes a shampoo for your dog as well as a household spray. In June I wasn't able to say much about FleaHex's efficiency since, at the time, we had only used the product once. We've been using FleaHex consistently for 5 months so I figured that now is as good a time as any to post an update about how it's been working for us. ...continue reading "FleaHex All Natural Flea Control Review"
Today is Barnaby's 10th birthday! ...continue reading "Happy 10th Birthday, Barnaby!"
I hope everyone had an awesome weekend! I know a lot of people in the US are gearing up to celebrate Thanksgiving later this week. It's going to be a fun week for the paw pack. Today is my fiance, Chris', birthday! He's working a half day then coming home early to celebrate, so after I finish this blog I have to clean the house, decorate, and bake a birthday cake. I didn't put in for any time off this week so have quite a bit of work to get through, but I'll still be cooking a small Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday. ...continue reading "November 2016 Pet Treater Review & Coupon Codes"
I know Thanksgiving is a big holiday for some people. My fiance and I don't generally make a big deal of it. I have a lot to be thankful for, but I'm more of a give thanks everyday type of person. I remember when I was a kid on Thanksgiving, my mom would ask us all to list a few things that we were thankful for. Undoubtedly if asked, many of us would say that we're thankful for our pets! They give us unconditional love and companionship and ask for little in return. If someone asked your pet the same question what do you think he/she would say? ...continue reading "What Pets are Thankful For"
My Papillon, Kitsune, will be 8 next month. Coming to terms with the fact that he's getting old hasn't exactly been easy for me. Many vets consider 8 year old dogs to be seniors. Kit is still active and playful, but the black hairs on his face are starting to turn white, and he suffers from arthritis in his back legs. Our vet gave us prescription pain meds (NSAIDS) for when Kit has bad days with his arthritis, but they come with a host of side effects that I'd like to avoid, if at all possible. ...continue reading "How CBD Has Helped Kitsune"
November, as well as being Adopt a Senior Pet Month, is also Pet Cancer Awareness Month. The awareness campaign was started in 2005 by the VPI Pet Insurance company (http://www.petinsurance.com). The VPI website states that cancer is "the No. 1 disease-related killer of dogs and cats. Fortunately, early detection and treatment of cancer in pets can prolong life and increase chances of survival." For the thousands of pet owners who have had to deal with cancer in their pets, this is a message that hits particularly close to home. ...continue reading "November is Pet Cancer Awareness Month"
It's been a bit of a rough week so far. Last weekend, as I'm sure you all know, daylight savings time ended which means we got to turn the clocks back an hour. For most people, that means getting to sleep an extra hour but for me, and I'm sure lots of other puppy owners, it means getting woken up an hour early all week. Pups just don't seem to understand the concept of daylight savings time! ...continue reading "Thankful for Puppies"
I've always been an enthusiastic lover of baby animals. Having raised two puppies now, plus a handful of other species from babies, I can see why not everyone is as enthusiastic about them as I am. Baby animals are messy, untrained, hyper, and usually come with expensive vet bills. Despite all that, I still just adore them. Lately, though, I've developed a new appreciation for senior pets. ...continue reading "November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month"
We received our November "Give Thanks" themed Pooch Perks box last week! It's so crazy to me that Thanksgiving is this month and then, after that, Yuletide is right around the corner. I have to apologize if my last couple of pet subscription box reviews have been on the boring side. I know I haven't been including many (if any!) pictures/videos of the dogs. But I do have a reason for not having them be more involved lately. ...continue reading "November 2016 Pooch Perks Review & Coupon Code"
