May 2019 – Pet Cancer Awareness

Bixbi Superfood Immunity

It’s made with a powerful blend of mushrooms that supplies your pet with a large range of antioxidants and polysaccharides to reduce the number of free radicals in their body. The mushrooms in their formula have also been shown to support normal inflammatory responses and both white and red blood cell production. With BIXBI Immunity, your pet is well positioned to fend off nearly anything that comes their way.

WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH MUSHROOMS ANYWAY?

Don’t worry. These aren’t the mushrooms you associate with the 60’s and acid rock. The potent, natural healing properties in mushrooms are an excellent, non-synthetic way to keep your dog or cat in tip-top shape. BIXBI mushroom supplements are organic and full spectrum, meaning they include mycelium, primordia, fruit bodies and extra-cellular compounds. Together, all these mushroom components are much more powerful than simply using one part. Our supplements were formulated by BIXBI’s founder, James Crouch, in conjunction with a renown mycologist.

WHY BIXBI MUSHROOMS ARE BETTER.

As mushrooms grow, they absorb the toxins and pollutants of their environment. BIXBI mushrooms are grown under highly controlled conditions with triple filtered air and are tested for toxins and contaminants prior to release.

Our mushrooms are exclusively grown using gluten free, organic sorghum with a guaranteed 95% conversion rate. Some other mushroom supplements are grown in oats, rice or other substrates which produce lower conversion rates resulting in a less potent product.

To ensure superior quality we test for beneficial polysaccharide, alpha glucan and beta glucan levels with every batch. We will not release product that does not meet our standards.

February 2019 – Show Your Pet Some Love

Lotus Cat Food

Lotus Oven-Baked kibble for cats is made by a process called Baked-In Goodness, and itʼs the big reason Lotus tastes delicious and is closer to homemade. Oven-baking means Lotus Oven-Baked kibble is less processed, has less starch, has more fresh meats, fish and poultry than most other kibbles, and hey, it just plain tastes better. Itʼs never extruded like most other cat foods which is the process of using heat and high pressure (three times atmospheric pressure) to form kibble in dies. Then theyʼre sprayed with “flavor” and fats. Plastic is often formed by extrusion, too. Creepy, right? Good thing someone (hint, hint) is committed to always oven-baking wholesome food for your cat.

January 2019 – New Products

Natural Dog Company PawTection

Pawtection helps prevent paws from experiencing:

HOT surfaces such as: pavement, sidewalks, gravel, rocks, sand, stone, concrete, decks, etc.
Harsh elements such as: salt, ice, snow, rough terrain, extreme temperatures
Helps to reduces effects of contact with allergens, like grass, pollen, or mold

Dogs are born with incredibly smooth and sensitive paw pads meant for walking through nature, not concrete sidewalks and pavement. Contact with harsh surfaces creates a lot of wear and tear, making them rough, scratchy and chapped. Without protection, these harsh surfaces / elements are very drying, allowing for continued damage and paws pads can begin to crack and peel – which is very painful for pets. PawTection creates a protective barrier to help lock in moisture and help prevent drying and damage.

Supervised play will help toys last longer and most importantly keep your pal safe. No dog toy is truly indestructible, so always remove the toy from playtime if pieces begin to break off.

Groom Genie Cat Brush

The Groom Genie became the first grooming brush that not only detangles and beautifies coats, but reduces a pet’s grooming anxiety while strengthening the bond between owner and pet.

Better Bristles:
BRISTLE DESIGN: Part of the real magic behind the Groom Genie brush is its unique tri-length bristle pattern which gently unravels knotted fur and hair, instead of pulling it.
TENSION STRENGTH: The Groom Genie bristles are designed to give just enough in order to undo knots without pulling them, making the brushing experience feel more like petting than brushing.
BRISTLE COLOR: The dove gray color of the bristles make it easy to see potential issues with a pet’s coat like pests and dried blood.
Handleless:A BETTER GRIP:
NO HANDLE. NO PROBLEM: Without a handle, your hand can be closer to the fur/hair, creating instant reaction time to problem areas. Additionally, the handleless format allows for more even and thorough pressure with each stroke.

HEALTHY COATS AND RELATIONSHIPS: With the Groom Genie, the brushing experience for a pet is more like being pampered than groomed – which allows you to brush your pet more effectively. The more you can brush your pet the more evenly natural oils will be distributed, leaving coat healthy and shiny.
OVER TOO SOON: Both you and your pet will get pleasure from sharing the brushing experience more often. This means they will stay less matted, their coats look better and you’ll have less less hair on furniture and clothes.
