Yes indeed, it’s August already! Despite cooler temperatures, summer is still with us for a while longer, so I hope you’ll have the opportunity to take advantage of some sunny weather and play outside.
All of the new items from SuperZoo have landed and as a subscriber, you get “privileged access” to any or all of them as your subscriber offer this month.
We’re tracking the latest information from the FDA on their investigation into a potential link between certain grain-free food ingredients and unusual reports of heart disease in breeds not normally susceptible. Watch for more information on this to be published by the end of the week on the website.
And since it’s never too early to be thinking about next year, the 2019 Smiley Dog calendar should be arriving in another week or three. If you’re on an auto-delivery schedule, you’ll receive one automatically. If not, just ask for one to be included with your next order.

Jiminy’s Crickets Are Here
We’re pleased to announce that 4 tasty varieties of Jiminy’s Cricket treats have hopped into the warehouse and are now available for your dog’s approval.
Jiminys treats are made with sustainable, high protein cricket powder which are raised using much less land, water and other resources than traditional protein sourcess.
Why are we excited about crickets? Why not! Crickets contain more protein than beef, are high in iron, low in fat and use a fraction of the resources required to raise meats.
Rad Cat Recalls Some Chicken and Venison Formulas
Radagast Pet Food, makers of Rad Cat Raw, is recalling specific lots of their Chicken and Venison raw cat food.
The recall was issued after followup sampling and testing found that 3 lots of the Chicken formula may contain Listeria bacteria. One lot of Venison could contain a type of E. coli bacteria which is not harmful to cats or dogs but could be harmful to humans if ingested.
SuperZoo 2018 Recap
Another SuperZoo has come and gone. Despite being held one month earlier than previous years, each day saw triple digit temperatures which were ignored by attendees inside comfortably air-conditioned halls during show hours.
This year’s show saw the addition of another exhibition hall, making it the largest SuperZoo to date (again). With just under 1200 exhibitors, the show floor took close to 5 hours to cover with a leisurely walk-through without stopping to collect information or chat.
The “service dog” population walking the floor grew once again, sporting an impressive number of trendy service dog vest designs. One other notable change was the large number of booths offering CBD products. These included treats, oils, supplements, capsules, creams and even water infused with nano-sized CBD particles.
There were a fair number of new and reformulated foods being introduced which included a few standouts. Read more…
