Preventing Accidental Overdose in Pets PDF Print E-mail

An estimated one-half of all patients in the United States fail to take their medications as prescribed and the averages are even higher for pet parents whose pets need medication. It's far too easy to forget when your pet's last dose of medication was, or to have a family member give an extra dosing by accident. This is why I was extremely happy to find the Rx Timer Cap.

The Rx Timer CapTM is a digital cap timer that shows the amount of time it’s been since you’ve last taken your dose of medication. It’s the perfect tool for managing your own, and your pets medicine. The timer on the cap works like a stopwatch, counting the time since your medication was last taken, and resets itself every time the container is opened or closed.

For example, Bree has an ear infection and is on amoxicillin twice a day. Every 12 hours, my husband and I have to remember to give her a pill. That may sound simple, but if you're dealing with your own medication, or your spouse or kids or parents medication, dosing can quickly become overwhelming and good intentions can become deadly in a heartbeat.

Stylish Winter Fashion for Pets PDF Print E-mail

It’s winter time, which means it’s cold. Why, here in Arizona – it may even drop as low as forty degrees! (Yes, I am being sarcastic.) But the sad truth of the matter is our 65-pound pampered pups, who spend most all of their day in our company and therefore have very little exposure to the outdoors, have to wear a coat in winter.

I admit this is not my proudest moment. While I think it’s super cute that small dogs get the honor of being warm (and looking adorable), I don’t personally like dressing big dogs up, and my coyote would have laughed me out of the room had I tried to make him wear a jacket. But the fact is that our spoiled, thin-coated dogs, Brock and Bree, need to wear a warm jacket when the temp drops below fifty degrees.

So, we got them coats. We have some extra large ones because they are extra large dogs (and very destructive). But, as we searched for something a little more stylish (they are trendsetters, you know), we ran across a group called Bark Baby Bark. They have some of the cutest fashions we’ve seen – many of them crocheted doggy wear – and all of them high-end dog apparel.

Take a step back, Gordon Ramsay. This year, pet parents will be spending their holidays developing creative cookie recipes not only for their human family, but for their pet family as well. Sunbeam Pets has just put a new Treat Maker on the market that makes gourmet treats a breeze.

Whether it’s a new “roasted buffalo, sweet potato and cranberry” concoction or a “pan-seared bacon with cranberries and quinoa” biscuit, developing gourmet pet treat recipes is where things are headed.

With the government still puzzled over the source of contamination in jerky treats from China, pet parents are stepping up to take control of their best-friends treat menu. This is a great way to offer your pets some high-quality, gourmet treats without breaking the bank – an important consideration in today’s economic climate.

Giant Limited Edition Hide A Squirrel Toy PDF Print E-mail

"Squirrel!"

As far as I'm concerned, one of the funniest movie scenes ever written was in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, when Chevy Chase spotted a squirrel clinging to his (very) elderly Uncle’s back and knocked him to the ground. It's one of those "you have to see it to appreciate it" scenes, but I laughed so hard!

Which is one reason I love the Kyjen Special Edition Hide-A-Squirrel toy. I feel exactly like the uncle whenever I have a squirrel toy in my pocket.

Okay, that came out wrong. Let me explain...
