Just like us, dogs have emotions too and can be impatient, fearful, traumatized from an event or loud noises such as thunder and fireworks, or they may simply not feel themselves.
That’s where veterinarian-recommended, all-natural Bach’s Rescue Remedy can help. Just add 2 drops in their drinking water and you’ll see how quickly they return to normal. Used on humans and animals for more than 80 years, Bach Flower Remedies are able to help our dogs when they have negative emotions just as they can help us when we are emotionally out of balance (yes, there’s a version for humans, too!)
Rescue Remedy is a blend of five of the 38 Bach Original Flower Remedies, as developed by Dr. Edward Bach. These include Rock Rose for terror or panic, Impatiens for irritation or impatience, Clematis for inattentiveness, Star of Bethlehem for trauma or shock and Cherry Plum for lack of self-control and can help your dog cope with different emotional aspects of stressful situations. Flower essences work on an energetic level rather than a chemical level and therefore have the capacity to facilitate shifts quickly and is alcohol free, non-habit forming and is safe and gentle for all pets.
Time and again, Rescue Remedy is chosen as a Modern Dog Staff Pick with good reason, we love it! -KD
Eat Well, Do Good
How cool is this? These irresistibly delicious, all-natural dog treats are great for your dog AND the environment. Protein-packed and omega-3-rich, these dog snacks are made from Asian Carp, a super-healthy but too-plentiful invasive fish species that threatens North American waterways, particularly in the Mid-West. It all came about when the folks at BareItAll pet food company heard of the Asian Carp epidemic. All about honest, recognizable ingredients and doing good for dogs and their community, they set about creating award-winning (and totally tasty!) pet treats from the fish, which has a nutritional profile very similar to salmon, thereby helping both dogs and our rivers alike. We can all do good by simply considering the impact of what we buy. These treats that show love to your pup and the environment are a great place to start! Find them at bareitallpetfoods.com.
Treats and Dental Care: The Importance of Transparency in Natural Dog Chews
Dog lovers continue to do more research than ever before to select healthier products for their furry friends. As we continue to humanize our pets, and since our pets cannot read ingredient labels or make their own decisions, pet-parents are more responsible than ever to seek out treat and chews with fewer and clearly labeled ingredients, from products that offer transparency and make it easy to understand exactly what is inside anything they give to their beloved pet. (What is inside and more importantly in some cases, what is NOT).
With WHIMZEES, we use the highest quality natural ingredients in our production process that guarantees the best product due to our commitment to using human grade standards.
Pet-parents definitely want to avoid artificial additives like preservatives and added sugars in dog chews, and seek out natural and healthy ingredients. They also want to understand not only where the product is made, but also where the ingredients of the product are sourced.
In addition, “grain free” and/or corn-free continues to be a requirement in regards to a growing number of dogs that have or are developing many types of allergies, so we have selected our vegetarian, limited ingredients clearly labeled by easy-to-read icons on the packaging to help pet-parents understand at a glance what’s inside.
WHIMZEES dog chews are an incredible solution for your dog’s dentai care and oral health as well because they offer all of the benefits that help to promote healthier gums and teeth, but in a more fun, delicious, and highly digestible way than anything else on the market. The limited, natural ingredients in WHIMZEES offer a high quality vegetarian option to your pet that promotes dental / oral health, but with a taste and texture dogs adore. In a range of sizes for every dog (now ranging from XXS for the tiniest breeds to XL for our larger breeds), there are WHIMZEES for all. The knobby whimsical shapes of our Hedgehogs, Alligators, Toothbrushes and more help promote healthy blood flow to teeth and gums, fighting the dangerous tartar and plaque linked to heart disease.
