Modern Kanine Grooming Wipes

Product Review: I can’t believe I don’t keep these in every room of the house, every car, everwhere. Maybe I’ll start!? These were great. Whether it was to clean up after a few hours outside, or to just gently rub into Goose’s fur – these were awesome to have on hand.



Dog Gone Gourmet Deli Snacks

Product Review: Goose loves these treats grain free biscuits. These crunchy snacks are a great post-adventure treat to show your dog just how much you love them. Filled with only the best ingredients and proudly made in Canada, you can’t go wrong with Dog Gone Gourmet treats of any kind.



Silver Spur Beef Crunch Treats

Product Review: Goose loves single ingredient treats. His Mom, even more so! We’ve tried lots of dehydrated beef products in the past but including lung, but this was still an awesome treat. Goose gobbled these crunchy treats up without even chewing, multiple times. Absolutely loves them. I think you’d be hard-pressed to find a dog who wouldn’t love these.



Pawsitive FX Organic Hemp Seed Oil

Product Review: We’ve always been very proactive with Goose, adding supplements to his daily meals from an early age, specifically omega’s to help with his skin, joint, and brain health. Pawsitive FX Organic Hemp Seed Oil is an awesome cold pressed Omega 3 & 6 supplement that easily mixes in with dry or wet dog food. With immune system support, inflammation reduction, and noticeable skin and coat improvements, why wouldn’t you be adding this to your pup’s daily routine.



OregaPet Oil of Oregano

Product Review: This is a great addition to our arsenal of all natural ingredients to help combat Goose’s seasonal allergies. With support against infections and infestations, adding this product into Goose’s daily supplement routine means we’ve added another way to help keep bacterial skin infections at bay.



Why feed raw pet food?

Known across the world as ‘BARF’ (Biologically appropriate raw nourishing), raw feeding aims to give dogs and cats an eating plan that is suitable to their digestive systems so that as close as you possibly can to what they might have ingested as wild animals. The abdominal pH in dogs and cats is much lower than that of humans, meaning they could breakdown raw beef and bone.



Why Catnip for your cat?

Exactly what does catnip do to cats? Well, according to science buffs, cats respond to catnip following a volatile oil in it called nepetalactone interacts with the nasal tissues. Yep, they’re virtually sniffing in the ‘nip. Once the catnip has been employed, it starts to replicate pheromones that subsequently activate feline receptors and make a variety of neuron lightbulbs pop off in the cat’s brain.



How pets improve mental health issues, from depression to PTSD

Cuddle power should not be underestimated: a growing raft of studies shows that furry friends can help people experiencing a host of issues...



How to Keep Your Pets Safe During the Holidays

While the holidays can leave you with a warm, fuzzy glow, they add a lot of things to the daily mix of your life that might not be good for your pets. Whether it’s your treats that upset their stomachs, a tree whose needles wind up in their mouths or well-meaning relatives who feed them off the table, the happiest time of the year can quickly become the most dangerous time for our four-legged friends.



How to rescue a cat from a tree?

“Firefighters probably won’t help,” says Dan Kraus, an arborist from Everett, Wash., who has rescued more than a thousand cats from trees. Give the cat at least 24 hours to dismount on its own before going up after it. When you do, wear a hard hat, a harness and boots. Stay safely tied to the tree either by a top rope you’ve looped over sturdy branches above or with two ropes secured around the trunk. To avoid spooking the cat, climb quietly, without breaking dead branches or yelling progress reports to onlookers below.
