A Look at LICKS Pill-Free Supplements PDF Print E-mail

There are thousands of supplements on the market that are available for your dogs and cats (and horses and reptiles and critters and birds). But, today I want to focus on a supplement that each of our pets use every day.

LICKS Pill-Free Formulas is a group that I wrote about years ago - they were in our Top 10 Most Impressive Products list from Global Pet Expo in 2013. At the time, they only had three formulas: JOINT+HEART, ATHLETE, and ZEN. So, we took a few samples home with us to try out. We were so impressed, we have been using them every day, ever since... Here’s why:

  • 98% absorbency rate (compared to only 10-30% for pills/powders)
  • Made and sourced in the USA
  • Effects are noticeable within a few minutes and last a few hours (great for calming pets!)
  • You can administer in many ways: Direct (from the package), On the paw (great for cats) and In Water
  • Individually packaged, which makes them easily transportable while traveling to shows or event

Not only are they easy to use, they work. They work (almost) immediately and they work incredibly well.

Each formula is made from the highest quality ingredients, all of which are sourced and manufactured in the USA. This is a more difficult task than you may imagine. Let’s examine glucosamine for a moment. Glucosamine is incredibly difficult to find in any area beyond China, and no one trusts China anymore. LICKS obtains their source of glucosamine from Green Lipped Mussels in the USA. In fact, all of their ingredients are sourced in the US and their products are manufactured from a facility in Wisconsin.

Nothing’s too good when it comes to our pets. We do everything together - from running down for a morning latte and “puppachino” at the local coffee shop to specialty pet beds and gourmet treats. This year, we encourage you to make them a part of your Valentine’s Day with a “Valentine’s Day for Dogs” on February 13 (a day before our traditional human Valentine’s Day).

What does this mean? Well, we want you to share your favorite treat, inside a special card, with any of your pup’s best dog friends. This might be someone in the neighborhood, a fellow walk-mate, a roommate, or just your own pup.

To make it easy, Milk-Bone, Pup-Peroni, Milo's Kitchen, and Canine Carry Outs have created a special doggie Valentine's Day card. Get yours free for a limited time!

Keeping You and Your Pets Safe Without Power PDF Print E-mail

Our friends in the Eastern half of this country are going to be seeing a lot of snow this week. That means dangerous conditions for our pets, as well ourselves.

You already know the basics: Keep your pets indoors, make sure any outdoor animals (horses, cattle, even feral cats) have access to extra calories and warm blankets, as well as covered shelter. Don't forget that your cold-weather and aquatic pets are going to require extra care until power is restored!

Once you get past the basics, there are a few other things to consider, particularly when it comes to birds, aquariums, reptiles and stray animals or livestock. You'll also want to look at some alternative ways to keep you and your pets entertained. We've got them all for you!

Five Reasons Your Dog Might Benefit from an Electric Fence PDF Print E-mail

When it comes to keeping your dog safe at home, you have lots of options. Of course, whatever keeps your dog happiest and healthiest is preferred. Traditional fences are excellent for keeping your dogs inside of your yard, because it’s never safe to leave your dog chained while outside alone. However, traditional fences aren’t foolproof, and sometimes they’re not the most effective way to keep your dog on your property. In some specific cases, electric dog fences are more practical and reliable.

Every dog has a different personality and different needs. Electric dog fences are containment systems that work better for some types of dogs. Before you choose a fencing system, it’s so important to consider your dog as an individual. If your dog is younger than six months old, pregnant, or very sick, an electronic dog fence should not be used. As long as your dog does not fall into those categories, here are some reasons why they might benefit from an electric fence.

Join the "Majority Project" to Help Dispel Breed Myths PDF Print E-mail

Breed discrimination has been happening for years. First to the German Shepherd breed, then to the Rottie, then the Dobermans, and now the Pit Bull. This year, Animal Farm Foundation (AFF) began The Majority Project to change the perception of pit bull owners and to fight against breed-specific legislation (BSL). As much as I hate taking a photograph, I despise BSL more, and that's why I decided to join in on this project. You're all invited to join us and I hope you'll participate!

The goal of The Majority Project is to change perceptions. Pit bull owners are not all drug dealers, gang members or fighters. Sure, those types of owners exist, and yes - they do a lot of damage to the breed, but the MAJORITY of pit bull owners are responsible, contributing members of society. We have jobs, families, and friends. We are no different than the owner of a small breed dog. Or a hunting dog. Or a lap dog. (In fact, most of our pits are lap dogs - they just weigh a little more.)

We invite you to join us on this project - here's how you can participate...
