Spring cleaning for you, and your pet

Posted on: Thursday, April 23rd, 2015

Now that there’s a hint of spring in the air, everyone is ready to start their spring cleaning routines. Fortunately, there are tons of great products to help freshen up your home and your pets!

For your home…

Nature's Miracle

Nature’s Miracle
Nature’s Miracle provides a line of pet-specific cleaning sprays. The bleach and other chemicals that are used in conventional house cleaners are not able to properly remove the biological matter from pet stains. In fact, using a bleach-based cleaner on pet urine can actually worsen the smell, in addition to encouraging the pet to continue marking the area. Nature’s Miracle is specially formulated to break down the enzymes in pet stains and totally remove the odors – even ones that only your pet can smell. I comes in a convenient spray bottle as well as larger sizes.

Pet Odor Eliminator Candles

Pet Odor Eliminator Brand
Pet Odor Eliminator makes specially formulated product to remove animal smells in your house, in addition to other strong scents such as cigarette smoke. Their products are designed to with enzymes that actually break up the odors, versus conventional products that only cover the scent. Their long-burning candles have been a long-time favorite with our store employees, however the brand now also offers air freshener sprays, reed diffusers, and hanging car fresheners. The seasonal scents ensure that you’ll never get bored!

Magic Coat Clean Up

Magic Coat Clean Up Brush
In addition to working as a brush for your pet, the Magic Coat brush’s rubber material is designed to quickly remove pet hair from carpet and furniture. The angled shape makes it easy to reach fur in crevices that a vacuum may not pick up.

For your pets…

Earthbath Grooming Wipes

Earthbath Wipes
When you don’t feel like giving your dog or cat an entire bath, you can try Earthbath Grooming Wipes. The wipes contain gentle cleansers that help maintain smell and coat in between full baths. They are especially helpful for dirty paws and faces! The wipes come in 100 and 28 counts in four different scents: green tea, mango, puppy cherry, and hypo-allergenic.

Earthbath Waterless Grooming Foam

Earthbath Waterless Grooming Foam
Another option for waterless bathing is grooming foam. The rub on, towel off option leaves your pet smelling and looking fresh. The gentle cleansers also help cut down on dander and saliva, which in turn can help ease pet related allergies.

Furminator Pet Brush

Furminator
The Furminator brushes claim to reduce shedding in cats and dogs by 90%, and they’re not lying! The design of the bristles allow the brush to reach through the topcoat and gently remove the undercoat and loose hair – where most shedding comes from. Not only does it keep your house clean, it also reduces hairballs!

Pet Nail Trimmers

Nail Trimmers
Nail trimmers come in a variety of styles and sizes depending on your pet. Clipper style trimmers are similar to nail scissors and come from tiny cat size to large dog. Guillotine style clippers function by putting the nail inside an opening, then a blade trims the nail. Again, they are available in a variety of sizes.

Come on by and give your Spring a fresh start!

Make your pet even more huggable this Valentines Day

Posted on: Saturday, February 14th, 2015

Not only is it Valentine’s Day, February is also official Pet Dental Health Month. Poor dental health can lead to tooth decay and stinky breath — and no one wants to smell that when snuggling up with their favorite pet. Here are some product that can help you keep your pet’s breath fresh, and its gums and teeth healthy!

Virbac C.E.T. Chews

Virbac C.E.T. Chews
C.E.T. chews are one of the number 1 recommended dental chews by vets. These enzymatic rawhide chews come in different sizes as well as a cat formula. The chews combine a natural antiseptic and an abrasive texture that work with a pet’s chewing motion to help control plaque and tartar. Because they are chicken flavored, the chews are very appealing to many pets. C.E.T also makes a dental rinse and pet toothpaste.

Virbac C.E.T. Toothbrush and Toothpaste
Finger Toothbrush

Toothpaste and Toothbrush
Both dogs and cats can benefit from having their teeth brushed at least every other day. Start by placing a small drop of pet-specific toothpaste on your finger as a treat, then slowly move to using a toothbrush or finger brush. Once your pet has become accustomed to the toothpaste on the brush, begin a light brushing movement! Over time, many pets view tooth brushing as a special treat. We carry both toothbrushes and finger brushes, as well as pet-specific toothpaste in flavors such as peanut butter, chicken, and vanilla mint.

Greenies Dental Chews

Greenies Dental Treats
The unique texture of Greenies Dental Bones for dogs help remove plaque and tartar buildup as well as stimulate gums and freshen breath. The weight-specific sizes help guarantee that the bone is the proper texture and firmness to clean your dog’s teeth properly. The bones are designed for every day treats, and therefore are low in fat! Greenies also makes Feline Dental Treats for cats. The treats are shaped like miniature toothbrushes and they come in a six flavors.

Dental Fresh

Dental Fresh Liquid
Just adding a Dental Fresh to your pet’s water bowl to equates brushing every time your pet takes a sip! The formula attacks bacteria and helps reduce and prevent plaque buildup. It is odorless and flavorless, so it won’t effect your pet’s drinking.

Old Mother Hubbard, Minty Fresh Breath

Old Mother Hubbard’s Minty Fresh Breath Treats
No dog can resist a good biscuit, and Old Mother Hubbard’s Fresh Breath treats also help to freshen breath with spearmint, parsley, and fennel.

Next time you stop by, check out some of these products to guarantee your loved ones stay fresh and huggable all year long!

Winter safety tips for your pet

Posted on: Friday, January 16th, 2015

Winter is finally here! Now is a great time to take your furry friend for a romp in the snow, or a fireside cuddle. Here are a few winter safety tips to keep and mind as we move into colder weather.

A good rule of thumb: If the weather is too cold for you, it is too cold for your pet. Keep cats inside to prevent freezing, frostbite, or injury. Make sure short-haired dogs wear proper winter gear when playing outside. We carry a variety of jackets, sweaters, and sweatshirts for all sizes!

Especially in a city environment, stray cats will often curl up in car engines to keep warm. Bang loudly on the car hood before starting your engine to prevent injury to these cats.

Ice melter and salt can be painful on your pup’s paws. After a snow, put booties (such as Pawz brand) on your dog before going for a walk . If your dog won’t tolerate booties, you may also use special paw protection wax such as Musher’s Secret. Wipe your dog’s feet, legs, and belly clean of any salt or snow once returning to your home. In addition, use only pet-safe ice melter on your property.

Check between your dog’s toes for redness, cracking, or any other sign of irritation. This can be caused by road salt, or from repeatedly moving from cold to warm temperatures. Keep your home humidified, and if irritation is noticed, get a paw repair balm such as Halo Herbal Healing Salve or Opie & Dixie’s Pawstik.

Give your pet a warm place to sleep such as a pet bed or couch. This area should be dry, heated, and draft-free. This will prevent your pet from finding warm, but possibly dangerous, areas to sleep. Make sure any space heaters or wood stoves aren’t left unattended and that fireplaces are covered with a grate.

Like humans, animals are more susceptible to colds in the winter time. Don’t medicate your pet without asking your vet first. Many over-the-counter medications such as Advil, Aleve, Motrin, Pepto-Bismol, Tylenol, and some decongestants are poisonous to animals.

Most importantly, enjoy the winter season cuddled up with your furry friend!
