PET INSURANCE:

That’s right, when I got my dog, Vito, I swore I would not put myself in the position to choose between a massive vet bill and his well-being. So I did my research and discovered top-rated Healthy Paws. I love, love, LOVE them! They reimburse FAST, and even cover holistic treatments like acupuncture and chiropractics.

Here’s a 10% OFF for LIFE promo they sent me. If you’ve even considered insurance for your furry friend, be sure to check Healthy Paws out. You’ll be grateful you did! xoxo Click HERE.

HOT WEATHER FAVES:

Cooling jacketRuffwear Swamp Cooler Jacket for Dogs — did you know that your dog cannot cool herself once the outdoor temperature is higher than their body temp? That means — even if you’re in the shade you can be harming your pet. My rule of thumb is if it’s 90 degrees outside, I won’t take my pup out. Period. I purchased this easy to use cooling vest for my pooch and it works well. I soak it in cold water, wring it out and it gets the job done. Even so, I limit his outdoor time to 20 minutes per outing during the summer. Whatever you decide, make sure the vest doesn’t dry out, re-wetting as needed.

FOR COLD WEATHER:

YEAR ROUND FAVES:

Paw conditionerMusher’s Secret Pet Paw Protector Wax — Why paw conditioner? That’s what I thought. Now I use this all the time to keep my pooches pads (and in between) well conditioned, preventing painful cracks. The label says it protects from hot surfaces as well as cold, but, I cannot find documentation of this, so defer to a comfortable surface temperature during the summer...don’t risk burning your pup’s footsies! Another great tip: if your dog has allergies to grass — many dogs (especially smooth coated) do — this creates a barrier on the pads and helps prevent allergic reactions like swelling, redness, rashes and irritation.

• Exercise and ActivityThe P.E.T.™ Device is a genius product to make exercising your dog super fun, easy and effective... in as little as 10 minutes a day!  They are sure to sell out, so check ’em out and pre-order right away. HERE.

NOTE: Do not play on pavers, pool deck or any other rough or hard surfaces as the sudden movements chasing the toy could tear up your pet’s paw pads.

• Dog chew — Antler dog chews — My pup’s number one chew choice!  He LOVES his antler chew. It’s a great use of all natural shed antlers...and they last a long time, even for strong chewers like my pit bull.  It’s also easy on their digestive systems and doesn’t seem to give them gas or bad breath..hurray! They come in Small, Medium and Large. Also, I’ve only heard of one dog that didn’t take to it. Then his owner soaked it in chicken broth, let it dry out...and now it’s his have, too!

Dog food/Grain Free — Nature’s Variety Instinct Rawboost Grain-Free Chicken Meal Formula Dry Dog Food (23.5 lbs.) This amazing food saved my dog from horrible allergy outbreaks. He was on a premium grain-free brand that we loved and used and then his body turned on him and he got hives all over! Some of it was environmental.... but, the first thing I did was change his food and it made a HUGE difference. If you’ve been going round and round with your pooch’s allergies you might want to give this a try.

AND, if they don’t have allergies, but you want to give them a grain free food they will LOVE, this is a delish kibble with little nuggets of freeze-dried raw food to make it extra tasty.

I also like that because of their high quality ingredients you can switch up the flavors morning and night to give variety to your pet’s diet. In addition to chicken they have lamb. beef, salmon and turkey. Different formulas, some grain free and some not. Some with raw nuggets, some not. But, something for everyone.

I’d love to hear how your pet does on this, feel free to let me know... you can email me HERE:)
