It may take your dog only 1-2 minutes to eat, which isn’t very long considering how much food is in the bowl. Read More »

keep your dog entertained

As more winter weather pounds the U.S., it’s no wonder everyone is getting a little antsy, including our pets. With all these snowstorms, dogs have to stay cooped up in the house, which means not a lot of playtime.

Sure, you can still take your pet for a walk, but when it’s so cold and blustery out, walks can get cut pretty short. Not only can little-to-no exercise be detrimental to your pet’s health, it can also make pets anxious and aggressive. That anxiety and aggression isn’t good for your pet, and ultimately it’s not good for you.  Anxiety and aggression in pets can lead to destructive behavior like chewing and scratching your furniture. That’s why it’s so important to keep your pet entertained while spending so much time indoors. Read More »

Probiotics are also good for your dog's immune system

Many pets are intolerant to grains in the diet

Did you know that before we started raising dogs as household pets they roamed free and ate mostly meat? It’s true! In fact, our pet’s digestive system isn’t really made to handle all the grains some pet foods and treats contain. That’s why many of our pets have an intolerance to grains. A diet high in grains such as wheat and corn can lead to problems such as stomachaches, ear infections, and even skin issues. Read More »
