It’s National Pet Dental Health Month

Health

Hi everyone, a sparkly toothed CEO Olivia here. It’s February which just happens to be National Pet Dental Health Month.

Just like with yourself, regular dental care is an important part of a good dog or cool cat’s overall health. Gum & tooth problems are a far too common cause of significant health issues in us four leggers. I’m sure you see a dentist regularly, so should your good dog or cool cat. An examination & a possible cleaning at least once a year by your vet is vital to check for early signs of an issue.

I had to have dental surgery last year due to a cracked tooth. While under I got a full cleaning. It was expensive & since then, for me, going to the vet is kind of scary. huMom never wants to put me through that again so she helps me take good care of my teeth.

Regularly brushing of your good dog or cool cat’s teeth is the single most effective thing you can do to keep their teeth & gums healthy. Most dogs accept brushing, but I hate toothbrushes & cats being cats, can be a bit more resistant – patience & training is key (hint : treats). Daily brushing is best if possible. Brushing several times a week can also be very effective. Simply wiping the teeth & gums with a warm cloth can also be an effective approach for those canines who like me, don’t like brushes to get used to our daily cleaning. Use something we like, like coconut oil instead of doggy toothpaste to help us accustom to this new dental regime.

Next week, I’m going to be offering the chance to beta test a new a natural hemp finger brush for cleaning teeth that my huMom & I have developed & been using since my dental surgery. My vet is super pleased with the results.

On a final note, just the other day we read that every plastic toothbrush you’ve ever used in your lifetime is still on the earth, probably in a landfill, and it will be there for thousands of years. Yikes! Thank dog my finger brush bio degrades.

My Supplements Probiotic 8 Plus

Health

Hi everyone, CEO Olivia. Today I’m continuing my bark out about my supplements. Just like humans, we dogs can suffer from food allergies. Corn, soy & various grains are common examples. Symptoms can include hives, inflammation, upset tummy, vomiting & diarrhea. In the case of hives, scratching can lead to skin infections, aggravating the immune system even more.

Furthermore, not all commercial dog foods are very nutritious. They lack beneficial bacteria because it’s been cooked out of them. This can lead to stomach issues such as indigestion & gas. I must confess, I used to be a little on the gassy side.

What’s a good dog or cool cat to do?

Suzie Q, the cats & myself get Probiotic 8 Plus with our meals.  It has been blended to promote healthy gut flora in good dogs & cool cats. It also provides us with B vitamins, trace minerals, & enzymes that make digestion & absorption of nutrients more efficient. The herbs in Probiotic 8 Plus are beneficial to the colon, preventing diarrhea & loose stools. In simple terms it makes the gut run smoothly with peak efficiency.

Probiotic 8 Plus is a green powder. huMom simply sprinkles the right amount into our food. Jerry Underfoot always waits for his “sprinkles”.

My Supplements: Nutrify

Health

Hi everyone, CEO Olivia here. Today I’m continuing to bark out about my supplements. For a while now, my huMom has been adding Nutrify to both me & Suzie Q’s meals.

Nutrify is a fortifier that ensures our meals are nutritionally balanced. My huMom just sprinkles on the right amount & mixes it into our food. It contains a complete spectrum of good stuff including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, essential fats & enzymes.

Adding Nutrify to meals nourishes our skin & fur, so our coats are always shiny & beautiful. But it also supports & maintains our bones, joints, ligaments & tendons to keep us in top form.

Note : We have been using Omega Alpha products for several years now & sell their products in our store but we are not being paid to endorse them.  We simply believe in their effectiveness.  My blood work & lab reports support this.
