Wondercide Natural Pest Control for Pets Appear on @SharkTankABC

User Rating: 5 / 5

You’ve heard us talk about the all-natural pest control collection from Wondercide before and there’s a good reason why - they offer the only safe, effective way to naturally protect your home and pets with solutions for pest control! 

Choosing safe products for our pets and homes has never been more important. With mosquitoes bringing West Nile Virus in the west, and now the Zika virus waging war on our friends in the south (not to mention the millions of other parasites and diseases we have to worry about with Flea and Tick Season - especially when it comes to Lyme Disease).

It's very easy to go overboard on insect repellents to keep our kids and pets safe. But what we often wind up doing is dousing our loved ones with toxic chemicals (that can create many other problems) in an effort to protect them from a potential illness. 

Now, thanks to Wondercide, you can protect them safely and naturally. 

Wondercide offers many pest-fighting solutions and an entire line of holistic, easy to use pet care products. And, it’s proudly made in the U.S.A. Wondercide protects our homes, families, dogs and cats from fleas, ticks and household pests, using only non-toxic, food-grade ingredients.

I've never been a fan of Halloween. To me, it symbolizes a time of year when I have to stress out over ways to Keep Pets Calm as the doorbell rings for hours on end, and worry incessantly about the small colony of feral cats I feed every day.

But even I must admit that these clever folks brought back my holiday spirit with the way they decorated their yards! They sure have gone above and beyond to make Halloween a more interesting time of year (and far more humorous!).

Here are some of the best decorated yards we've seen this year (and information on how you can find the materials to make your own fun Halloween display...

We’re always hunting for new ways to give away treats. This is a fun way to stretch a bag of treats to give out to a number of dogs or cats (it was a big hit at the dog park)! So if your dog has lots of buddies and you want to celebrate a special occasion or just bring some extra joy to the dog park. we hope you’ll make up a few of these treats with your favorite pack of Natural Balance treats.

One reason we like using Natural Balance® treats is because they are healthy, nutritious rewards with limited calorie options. This means, we’re not contributing the obesity problem in the United States. Since their products are formulated by expert nutritionists, we can give it to their doggy friends with confidence.

These little treat holders wind up looking like those "sour cream" holders that you used to get at Potato places. They are super cute, a perfect size for a day at the dog park (they hold exactly the right number of treats) and best of all - it's a great way to re-purpose those empty toilet paper holders and/or paper towel holders (which makes life better in our landfills for a little while). Even the non-craftiest of people can make these fun holders.

I don't know about you, but we're always looking for ways to improve our pets lives. We're also always on the hunt for new Do It Yourself projects that are fun, creative, and something that just about anyone can do.

That's why we were super excited to find this DIY Pet Bed. It requires almost no skill to put together, kids can do it for shelter animals, and it's something that can be done with scraps of fabric - so it's very inexpensive.

We hope you'll consider making one of these pet beds not only for your pets, but for shelter pets. Cats in particular love to curl up in this nest of soft fabric, and we think it's something that the shelters will welcome because they are machine washable and easy to care for.
