SlimCat will do just that. SlimCat is an interactive feeding ball that increases feline activity, decreases excessive eating and improves behavioral problems such as excessive meowing, scratching or aggression.

Available in many different flavors and textures, your kitty will thank you for the healthy, tasty meals! All Weruva canned foods are high in protein, low in fat, and high in moisture.

Being a raw diet, it’s one of the most biologically appropriate and most holistic foods to  feed your cat or dog.

Free of antibiotics, steroids, preservatives and added hormones, all meat, poultry and game used in our products are responsibly sourced from sustainable ranchers in the United States, New Zealand, Australia and Europe.

Pets experience better digestion and absorb nutrients more easily when fed a diet based on natural eating habits in the wild: muscle meat, meaty bones, organs, and raw fruits and vegetables.

Simply put, the ingredients they use in their products are the same items you’d find in any health conscious human’s grocery cart — 100% USDA inspected proteins and fresh, certified organic fruits, vegetables, and non-synthetic vitamins and minerals.

Dental Health Month

Northwest Naturals Marrow BonesNorthwest Naturals Marrow Bones

The reason why plaque is so hard to remove from teeth is that the dental bacteria create a protective barrier, or biofilm, which cannot be permeated by water, toothpaste, or chemicals. Raw bones have naturally occurring enzymes which break down the biofilm on teeth. Then, when pets chew on the bone, the plaque is gently scraped off the teeth.

In addition to great dental health benefits, raw meaty bones provide recreational activity for adult dogs and an appropriate chewing outlet for puppies. Young and teething dogs have a psychological and physical need to chew. Besides providing a fun and engaging (and tasty!) activity, young dogs can properly develop jaw, skull, neck, and shoulder muscling. (It also keeps them away from your favorite shoes!)

The last important aspect of feeding raw bones is a nutritional benefit. Raw bones, and the marrow within, are both natural nutritional sources of protein, fat, minerals, calcium, and phosphorous. However, since raw arrow bones are meant to be chewed only–not eaten—there are only small amounts of these nutrients and the bones should be fed more as a “treat” than as a replacement for your dog’s usual food.

Available in four tasty flavors. Choose between Turkey & Cranberry Flavor, Chicken and Pumpkin Flavor, Bacon Flavor and Vegetable Fusion Flavor.

Dogs constantly produce new plaque in their mouths. If not treated, can calcify into tartar, something that cannot be brushed away from the teeth. Instead, a vet needs to remove tartar with anesthesia and ultrasound. If the tartar remains untreated, it can lead to infections being passed in the animal’s body, which can damage the heart, lungs, liver and adversely affect renal function. Our goal is to offer natural products to supplement your pet’s dental and oral hygiene routine.
