Pet Cancer Awareness Month

May is Pet Cancer Awareness Month! Check out some of our favorite products that have anti-cancer properties! 

When turmeric comes to mind, most think of the bright yellow spice that we put into foods to add color and flavor. However, turmeric also has incredible health benefits that have been used by humans for thousands of years. This spice contains many compounds, including curcumin, which can aid in the prevention and treatment of many diseases and ailments. Turmeric has been found to help with any sort of inflammatory derived illness, including arthritis, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and even cancer. Curcumin is the most important of the compounds because the levels of anti-inflammatory properties match the effectiveness of conventional anti-inflammatory prescription drugs, however, our bodies struggle to absorb it into our bloodstreams; same goes for animals too! To Doggy with Love’s Hip & Joint is a human-grade food additive supplement that could benefit any pet. Hip & Joint is made up of organic coconut oil, turmeric, and black pepper. Black pepper is important because it contains piperine; this allows the body to hold on to curcumin longer for a higher absorption percentage.

Medicinal Mushrooms

Reishi, Shitake, Lion’s Mane; these are some examples of the medicinal types of mushrooms. Bixbi Immunity supplement contains a proprietary organic mushroom formula that helps fight free radicals and support the function of the immune system. These helpful mushrooms contain polysaccharides, lysozymes, and triterpenes, which have anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-tumor properties. Some mushrooms contain compounds that stimulate the immune system, and assist healing of the liver, kidneys, and heart tissues.

Omega-3

“The two main omega-3s—eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)—promote a healthy immune response that is behind the relief of many chronic conditions but that is too often inhibited by poor nutrition.” Pet owners think buying a fish based food will add in the omegas that they need to help build and maintain brain function, ocular health, joint care, and other important functions. However, in the case of extruded kibbles, the high heat process cooks out almost all the important omega-3 from the food. Adding in fish oils such as Nordic Naturals can give your pet the amount of omegas they need for a healthy diet! Omega-3 is also a known immune booster and can actually slow down the growth of cancer. Nordic Naturals is a highly recommended brand from Norway because they have all of their products third party tested for toxins and they meet all the standards that Norway requires for fish oils; while the United States does not have standards. 

April Showers Bring May Flowers

It’s no secret that springtime brings rain and the beginning of allergy symptoms. We know that you love your fur babies so here’s a few products that we think can help make this time of the year a little more bearable for you and your pet. 

RC Pet Products

April Showers Bring May Flowers

This Canadian company creates coats and jackets meant for all types of weather. They originally got started by making products for skiers and snowboarders who spent their time playing around in the British Columbian mountains, meaning that durability was a huge factor. The good news is, they use the same criteria for their pet products!

“Our coats will keep your pet dry, warm and happy in rain and snow, helping you get outside with your pet more often.”

Herbsmith

According to a study conducted by Novartis Animal Health, over half of all pet owners are unaware that their furry friends are suffering through seasonal allergy symptoms. Herbsmith is a brand that makes herbal supplements for pets based off of Chinese Medicine. They strive to educate the public about the benefits of their unique herbal solutions and to improve overall animal wellness. Chinese herbs are used to treat underlying issues or troubles instead of covering up the symptoms with harsh prescriptions. 

Soggy Doggy Mats

These mats are each made of super-absorbent, durable, microfiber chenille. Their Super Shammy can hold up to seven times its own weight! An extra benefit; once you’re done drying off your pup, you can throw your mat right in the washer and dryer. The chenille material is super soft for delicate areas like paws and bellies. 

New Products

New Products we now carry:  ‘Ultra Oil’ skin & coat supplement, ‘Livelong’ healthy & strong dog and cat food, ‘Pet Remedy’ natural de-stressing and calming products, ‘Major Dog’ training products for dogs.

New Products

Protect your pet from dry skin this season with new Ultra Oil; a blend of sardine, anchovy, and hempseed oils. This USA made product is GMO, gluten, dairy, and soy free. Ultra Oil is different from other fish oil supplements because it has balanced omega 3, 6 and 9, whereas most have only omegas 3 and 6. Beyond the issue of dry skin, Ultra Oil can benefit animals who have joint pain, hot spots, allergic breakouts, along with aiding in cardiovascular circulation, organ function, immunity support, and lowering cholesterol levels.  Click here for more information.

 Pet Remedy Natural De-stressing and Calming

Pet Remedy works alongside the brain’s natural ‘messengers’ called neutrotransmitters, which work by telling the nerve receiving the message either to calm or get ‘fired up.’ In times of stress or anxiety the nerves get over stimulated, which leads to the many different signs of stress you can see. The Pet Remedy blend of essential oils works alongside these natural relaxation pathways to help calm the nerves of anxious or stressed pets.

 Major Dog Toys

Major Dog training products for dogs were developed through intense collaborative efforts between trainers and dog owners. All the training toys were designed, tested and TUV certified to ensure the highest standards for quality and function.
