Stars Hoodie Dog Tank for Your Patriot Pet


Who doesn't love a hoodie? This Stars Hoodie Dog Tank is perfect for your patriotic pooch on the 4th of July and year round.This classic style with all-over stars is made of a cotton/lycra blend and is machine washable. So cute!!

Muttropolis.com has some tips for handling our pets on the 4th:

Fireworks are no blast for pets! The 4th of July is the highest intake day for animal control and shelters. Keep your pet safe on the 4th of July with these safety tips:

1. Leave your dog at home during the fireworks celebration. A dog's hearing is 10 times more sensitive than a human's, which can make fireworks very alarming.
2. Keep them occupied with an interactive toy while you are gone. Make sure it is safe, since you will not be around to supervise them.
3. Ease the anxiety with Rescue Remedy, an herbal remedy to help your pet relax.
4. Keep a radio or television on in the background to mask the parade and fireworks noise.
5. And finally, please make sure your dog is wearing his or her collar with proper ID tags. If they get spooked and run away they can be identified quickly.

All-Natural Mosquito-Repellent Dog Tags from Bug Bam

During peak mosquito season, we are reluctant to let our dogs outdoors for too long after dark for fear of the suffering those little buggers can cause, especially transmitting heartworm disease. June 21-27th is National Mosquito Control Awareness Week. Bet you didn't know there was such a thing!

Many areas even endure heavy mosquito infestation during the day. Bug Bam products work by emitting the insect-repellent scents of all natural, plant-based essential oils, masking the human and pet smells that attract mosquitoes. Research has shown Bug Bam's main ingredient, geraniol, to be an effective plant-based mosquito repellent.


Bug Bam Pet Tags use the scent of 100% natural essential oils to repel mosquitoes without using the potentially harmful chemicals found in flea collars and traditional topical applications. Bug Bam's all natural ingredients can also repel fleas and ticks.

Bugbam_Dog Tag.JPG

Each tag lasts up to 15 days, with 2 tags per pack for 30 days of protection. To prolong the life of the tags, try removing them (especially during non-peak infestation periods and when the dogs are inside) and sealing them in plastic bags to maintain the smell until the dogs go out again or for use after dark.

Not recommended for our cats as they generally dislike the scent of citronella oil, which is based on geraniol.

Skamper-Ramp SKR4 Swimming Pool Pet Ramp


When a pet or other animal jumps or falls in a pool, a lake or pond, they have no trouble swimming at first, but without a way out, they eventually panic and drown from exhaustion.

The 2009 Skamper Ramp SKR4 helps your pets and critters get out of the water themselves--from dogs to frogs! Because all living beings see white, animals can see it day or night and, even if they can't use a step (ducklings, snakes, baby possums), they can escape out of the water on the ramp.

This 2009 upgraded Skamper Ramp SKR4 is stronger--ideal for vinyl lined pools since it has no sharp fabricated edges, it's easier to assemble, less slippery, more aesthetically pleasing, and more functional.

Skamper-Ramps will not yellow, become scummy, grow barnacles, or mildew/algae when left in salt water, fresh water, pool water. The light-weight Skamper-Ramps are made completely from recyclable materials.

PetScoop -- USA Airports to Create Designated Pet Relief Areas


It's a great thing to fly with your pet, but what to do at the airport when those big brown eyes look up at you beseechingly? No, they're not hungry...well, yes of course they are, but they need to "go outside".

Harriet Baskas, writer of Stuck at the Airport and contributor to USAToday.com and MSNBC.com, reports that as of May 13, 2009 the US Transportation Department has directed that all airlines must provide pet relief areas, as well as escorts to those relief areas, for any passenger traveling with a service animal.

Across the country airlines and airports are working together to create or upgrade pet relief areas that are open for public pet use.

PetScoop: Soft-Hearted Pillow -- An Alternative to the Pet Cremation Urn


This is a pet product you are either going to love or, well...not so much.

The traditional method of preserving cremated pet remains has been the urn gathering dust on a shelf. Now, you may be comforted to know that you can keep what remains of your pet close to you, as they always were in life.

Your pet can be memorialized in a Soft-Hearted Pillow -- "a supple, huggable pillow that captures the love and tenderness that pet owners feel for their pets in a secure yet soft, embraceable, warm alternative."

The pillow is the brain-child of one Pati Moore, who operates (where else?) on the western coast of Florida in Naples.

The 14 inch square Soft-Hearted Pillow can accommodate any type of pet--dogs, cats , birds, ferrets, rabbits, reptiles, pet rats. It comes in a choice of three micro-fleece fabrics in neutral colors with matching braided trim and can be personalized.

WETNoz Urban Pet Bowl for Cats and Dogs


Inspired by the success of their pill-shaped Zen Ceramic Pet Bowls, the Wetnoz Design Lab has created another innovative pet feeding dish, the WETNoz Urban Pet Bowl. Rather than the Zen ceramic, the Urban has a two-piece construction of a non-skid plastic outer shell, with a removable stainless liner for easy cleaning.

Like the Zen, the pill-shaped Urban placed inline with a dog`s body conforms ergonomically to his/her the mouth and allows the ears to fall outside of the bowl. The dish placed perpendicular to a cat`s body reduces sensitive whisker contact.

PetScoop -- Pooper Scooper Services Growing in Popularity


Need a new career? Or tired of cleaning up after your pet in the yard? A new type of pet service growing in popularity is the pooper scooper business.

One such is DoodyCalls, a nationwide pet waste removal service for homeowners and communities. "Doody is our duty, and we take our job seriously--with all our services 100% guaranteed. Our friendly, professional technicians pick up where your dog left off, so you don't have to. We're guessing you have much better things to do with your time!"

Today's Sunday New York Times has the scoop:

Most local pooper-scooper laws deal with public spaces, not private property. But in suburbs of New York and elsewhere, mom and pop operators with a sense of humor (the companies have names like Poop Patrol and ScooperDude and slogans like "We're No. 1 in the No. 2 business"), have found a market: the super-busy, families with children who play in the yard and homeowner associations with common greenspace or dog runs.

To increase their marketability, many of the companies cast themselves as environmental guardians, emphasizing the dangers of dog waste, which can carry bacteria and parasites that cause disease and contaminate waterways.

The scoopers, who also handle cat, goose and deer waste, typically place it in plastic bags and, depending on local ordinances, dump it in the homeowner's trash or drop it off at local landfills or incinerators. Their growing popularity parallels that of styling boutiques and travel services that have sprung up to help Americans spend about $45 billion on their pets each year.

Kurgo Auto Zip Line Dog Safety Harness


We all know it is safer not to let our pets roam free in the back seat on car rides, but many dogs chafe at being tightly constrained in a harness.

If this describes your dog, the Kurgo Auto Zip-Line lets your dogs pace from left to right in the back seat, but keeps them restrained and safer during sudden stops.

The line is basically nylon webbing that attaches between the two rear passenger side handles and is easy to install in any car or SUV. It's similar to the earlier featured Kurgo K9 Truck Tether which secures your dog directly behind a pickup truck cab.

The Kurgo dog harness and leash (sold separately) work in conjunction with the Auto Zip Line to go easily from pavement to vehicle.

PetScoop: Palladia Receives FDA Approval as First Drug to Treat Cancer in Dogs

Teal Paws Cure Dog T-Shirt
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the first drug developed specifically for the treatment of cancer in dogs. Palladia, manufactured by Pfizer Animal Health Inc, is targeted at canine cutaneous mast cell tumors, responsible for about 1 of 5 cases of canine skin tumors.

This is a significant development. Up until now, all cancer drugs used in veterinary medicine originally were developed for use in humans and are not approved for use in animals. Reuters has the scoop:

Treatment with new cancer drugs for humans tends to cost tens of thousands of dollars per patient, and the majority of pet owners do not have health insurance for their dogs.

Thunderstorms, Fireworks, Vet Visits -- 3 Remedies to Reduce Anxiety and Calm Your Pet

funny pictures of cats with captions

Does your pet suffer from anxiety? Thunderstorm season is here and the July 4th fireworks marathon approaches, not to mention those terrifying vet visits. Our dogs tremble, pant, pace and even become destructive. Our cats shake, meow strangely, and become skittish.

Pet anxiety is serious, especially for those who suffer continually. Your pet may flee the scene in terror and be hit by a car, get lost or stolen. S/he may jump through a glass window, scratch the walls or rip apart your furniture.

So, how to help your pet lose the terror?

Distraction -- Calming music, "white noise" such as fans or A/C, TV, radio to drown out the scary sounds.

Synthetic Pheromones -- These reduce or even prevent stress-related behavior if your pet's anxiety is mild to moderate.

For your cat, Feliway Plug-In Diffuser is recommended or spritz some Feliway Spray on his/her bedding and favorite hangouts. Likewise, for your dog, apply some D.A.P. Dog Appeasing Pheromone Spray liberally in the cage and if in an enclosed area plug in a D.A.P. Dog Appeasing Pheromone Electric Diffuser.

We are following up after trying D.A.P. Dog Appeasing Pheromone, which worked well with our storm-phobic Golden as long as she stays put in one spot. Since she paces, the DAP Collar is the best choice as it goes where she goes.

Anti-Anxiety Meds -- Where a lot of pets live, thunderstorms or scary sounds can happen daily. If your pet experiences the misery of anxiety on a constant or extreme basis, your vet may prescribe Anxiety Relief medications.
