It's important to use the correct syringe for your pet's insulin

A syringe is a syringe, right? Actually, syringes come in different units of measure, different sizes, different needle length, different needle width, different, different, different! Giving insulin to a pet, especially if you’ve never done that before, is stressful enough without having to worry about giving the wrong dose.

Even though the US is no longer in the tournament, it is still a fun sport to watch. I even have my very own soccer ball!

Enjoy more outdoor time this summer with the Tuggo Dog Toy

As pet parents we’re always on the lookout for new toys we feel our pets can get excited about. If your pet tends to take their toys apart it’s certainly a benefit when the toy lasts longer than a few minutes of bringing it home.

This summer consider giving your pet a Tuggo Dog Toy. Whether you’re at the beach, dog park or your own backyard this durable tug-of-war style dog toy has adjustable resistance up to 20 lbs making it a great toy for dogs of all sizes and breeds.

Tuggo dog toy

Curious how the Tuggo Dog Toy works? Its unique design includes a tug rope which passes through a hollow plastic ball. Simply use as is (weighing 1 lb), or you can adjust the resistance of a Tuggo Dog Toy to give your pet more of a workout during playtime. Simply unscrew the cap on the ball and fill with water, sand or gravel to the desired weight. Place the cap back on and give to your pet for playtime!

What do you think of the Tuggo Dog Toy? Is this a toy your pet would enjoy?

Certain breeds are predisposed to getting dry eyes

For many years I have suffered from dry and red eyes. I often get asked if I have been crying or if I was up late. The response is always the same, “I have light, sensitive eyes and I’m particularly vulnerable to getting red eyes, especially during the time of year when the pollen count is high.” Dry eyes occur in pets as well, and it occurs when there isn’t enough lubricant released from the eye glands to keep the eye moist. Natural tears not only contain soothing ingredients they also contain antibodies to help fight against potential infection. Read More »
