Are you giving your dogs this popular supplement?

Are you giving your dogs this popular supplement?

Fish oil is one of the top recommended additive for your dog’s meals. Are you adding this to your pup's dish?

Fish oil contains omega-3 fatty acids, which is an essential fat that is good for both your dog’s body and brain!  Much like us humans, dogs can’t produce their own omega-3’s, so they have to be able to eat this in their meals.

Fish oil helps your dog’s skin and coat to reduce itchy and flakey skin.  It can also relieve allergies and joint pain.

Looking to boost your dog’s nutrition with some omega-3 packed fish oil?  We carry and recommend NaturVet Salmon Oil for Skin & Coat for Dogs & Cats to get you started!  It's recommended to give them this supplement in their meals, dosing it depending on your dog's weight and food sensitivity.

Do you use natural products for grooming your dog?

Do you use natural products for grooming your dog?

Many people wonder if natural grooming products make a difference compared to other products that include chemicals.  The short answer is: yes!  

Unfortunately, lots of shampoos contain chemicals that cause your dog discomfort through irritation and itching due to the harsh chemicals that have scent and cause lather.  When you choose all-natural dog shampoos, you can avoid discomfort for your dog.  You want your dog to feel nice and clean after a bath, not irritated or itchy!

Another point is natural ingredients sometimes hold more usefulness than chemical counterparts!  Some natural essential oils can have many different uses, such as natural insect repellent or even anti-inflammatory properties!

Finally, many natural dog shampoos are eco-friendly, coming from sustainable sources.  In order for a shampoo to be considered natural, make sure to avoid these ingredients in your dog's shampoo:

  • dyes or colorants
  • parabens
  • added fragrances that aren't essential oils
  • Sodium laureth sulfate
  • Mineral oil
By using natural ingredient-based dog shampoos, you help not only your pet, but the earth!  

We carry and recommend Skouts Honor Probiotic Shampoo and Conditioner, an all-natural and eco-friendly option for your dog.  Check it out on our website, as well as other all-natural grooming products!
