  • 5 Tough Plush Toys for Dogs Who Love to Chew

    Dogs love to chew, play and “mouth” their favorite toys. If you have a Labrador or Golden retriever, you know their greatest joy is derived from carrying special soft toys around in their mouth. They greet you at the door with the toy, they follow you around the yard with the slobbery mess.

    If, like us, you have very destructive dogs who love to disembowel every plush toy they come across, you know how hard it is to find a toy that will hold up to their destruction. But you can’t turn away from those eyes begging for a soft, plush stuffed animal to munch on.

    Well, we’ve got some good news. We found a few toys that will outlast the others by days (maybe even months)!

  • Technology Helps Pets Fight Fleas and Ticks

    Ready for some new technology to fight the war on fleas and ticks? We've got a few things for you.

    There are lots of products on the market that help fight fleas and ticks naturally, but sometimes you need a little more. This is where ultrasonic tick and flea protection comes into play.

    The concept is pretty simple: Insects detect sound by special hairs (known as sensilla) which are located on the insects antennae (in the case of mosquitoes), genitalia (in the case of cockroaches), or tympanal organs (in the case of butterflies). The theory is that they don't like the sound of pulses and will run away to another unlikely victim.

    Enter the SonicGuard™ Ultrasonic Tick and Flea Protection from Gen7 Pets.

  • How much water does your cat need?

    Water is the one thing that no living being can do without. It’s especially important to our pets. Not drinking enough water can result in lots of health problems for our dogs and cats.

    This is why we’re helping PetSafe® celebrate National Pet Hydration Month this July. They not only understand the importance of water, they help make it safe for our pets. As you know if you read PetsWeekly, Drinkwells is our preferred way to make desert water a little more appealing to our pets. Since we’ve used pet fountains in our home, we have virtually eliminated urinary stones and crystals in our cats, and UTIs in our dogs.

    “Our pets need one ounce of water per pound of bodyweight each day,” said Willie Wallace, CEO of Radio Systems Corporation, makers of the PetSafe brand. “Proper hydration plays a big role in a pet’s health, and can save pet parents a trip to their vet’s office.”

  • 10 Questions to Ask Before Buying Pet Insurance

    June 28 is National Insurance Awareness Day. This year, let’s focus the conversation on our pets.

    Insurance is a hot topic for everyone  these days. Not only do we have to make tough choices for ourselves and our human family, we now have to seriously consider options for out pets medical care. As science and technology improve, so does the care of pets, but these advances are not inexpensive.

    It really shouldn’t be that tough of a question. We insure our homes, our vehicles, our jewelry and even our art. Why wouldn’t we insure our pets to make certain they receive the best care possible? Yet, fewer than 1% of our pets are protected by insurance.

    We know how important it is to make this decision count. That’s why we worked with Pets Best to come up with a list of the top 10 questions you should ask prior to purchasing pet insurance.

  • Calmz Anxiety Relief System Helps Pets Stay Calm

    There’s a new option for keeping dogs calm during times of stress (particularly when there's a thunderstorm or fireworks, or when your pets experience separation anxiety). Since it's very new and quite effective, I wanted to let you know about it right away so you can get it ordered before the 4th of July.

    Calmz is an anxiety relief system that is developed by vets for pets. It’s non-invasive, drug-free and effective; so I’m quite excited to be among the first to introduce it. This unique system uses sound, touch, and vibration to help calm pets.

    Here are the details:
