The quality of any animal product, including organ meats, is determined by its source. Read more…
A Day as an Escort
“The most important thing is don’t hurt yourself.”

Everyone relaxed a bit more when the comfort dogs made an appearance. Read more…
Blue Buffalo Lawsuit Update
Blue Buffalo recently released a statement on its website confirming that some of its formulas may have contained poultry by-products meal instead of 100% chicken meal.
In its statement, Blue places the blame on one of its suppliers, Wilbur-Ellis, for mislabeling an ingredient used in producing some of their food. They claim that while Blue was “ordering and paying for 100% chicken meal, at times they were receiving shipments that contained poultry by-product meal.” Read more…

OptaGest is a daily digestive supplement for dogs and cats from In Clover, the makers of our best-selling joint supplement. OptaGest is unique in that it contains the prebiotic inulin as well as digestive enzymes. It does not contain probiotics since these can lose most of their effectiveness as they travel through a pet’s digestive tract.
Prebiotics are the “food” that allow existing probiotics to work their digestive magic. Adding prebiotics to your pet’s diet benefits both the immune and digestive systems by increasing the quantity of good bacteria.
Pets under stress, aging or experiencing difficulty with food transition can benefit from OptaGest. It works quickly, in harmony with your pet’s metabolism, and results are normally seen within 3-5 days. Try a 2 gram single serve sample for just $1.00, or 5 for $3.00
