New Litterbox Zaps Bacteria, Germs and Odor E-mail

There is finally a new product on the way to market that is truly revolutionary. I think when you see what this product does, you'll be as excited as I am to have one in your home.

For years, litterboxes have been the bane of a cat owner's existence. Destroying litterbox odors, eliminating eggs from worms and parasites, and eliminating germs and bacteria are the critical areas that technology has not been able to improve on.

Until now. Inventor and long-time cat-owner Stewart Lovenvirth, has developed a revolutionary cat litter box, titled LitterZap, which has been proven to be safe, sanitary and disease-free. The model utilizes powerful bursts of UV-C light to eradicate bacteria lurking in and around your pets litter box. Here are the highlights:

  • Eliminates flea, tick and lice eggs.
  • Eliminates hookworm, roundworm and other creepy crawlies.
  • Eliminates germs, viruses, bacteria, parasites and reduces odor.
  • Increases life of litter by 25-30%.

A Look at LICKS Pill-Free Supplements 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.

Fencing Solutions to Keep Dogs Contained E-mail

If you have a dog, you know how difficult it can be to keep them on your property. Sometimes dogs just want to escape the confines of their yard, but it's our responsibility as guardians to ensure our pets are within our control at all times - even those times we're not physically with them. Fences make for good neighbors, and they make much safer environments for pets. Here are five ways you can fence your yard and the costs, the benefits and the dangers of each.

The type of fencing you ultimately select should be based on your geographical region, your HOA guidelines (if you have them), and the type of dog(s) you are containing. You'll also need to consider your weather. If you're in an area with lots of weather, you'll want to consider installing a more durable type of fencing. If you live in an area with snow, the snow can pile up near the gates and provide a near perfect way for your pets to escape. But, if you have a dog that is regularly escaping from your yard, consider reading this article or implementing some of these practical tips below:

Keeping You and Your Pets Safe Without Power 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!

Preventing, Recognizing and Treating Frostbite in Dogs E-mail

Can dogs suffer from frostbite like humans do? The Polar Vortex of early 2014 brought wind chills in the single digits as far south as the Florida Panhandle and recent winter blizzards have even managed to bring parts of North Dakota to a standstill. So, clearly, knowing the answer to the question of whether dogs can get frostbitten is potentially vital to tens of millions of dog owners.

The answer is, unfortunately, yes. Dogs can experience extreme suffering as the result of the pain of frostbite. Making matters worse is the fact it may actually take a couple of days for you to realize the extent of the malady. Taking the time to learn what symptoms to look for may be enough to save your pet from at least some pain and suffering.
