We think we have found a People's Pharmacy for pets -- a book of pet care tips using brand-name products and home remedies. Joey Green's Amazing Pet Cures: 1,130 Simple Pet Remedies Using Brand-Name Products is by (surprise) Joey Green, the author of more than 40 books. He is a former contributing editor to National Lampoon and a former advertising copywriter. He appears regularly on news and entertainment television programs and at home and garden shows across the country.
For instance, he suggests using ChapStik to stop a bleeding claw, Listerine to reduce itching, vinegar to douse cat smells and and fabric softener in your pet's bath to soothe dry skin. All products have been tested for safety. Sounds like a great Mother's or Father's Day gift.

When we maintain an aquarium, we are responsible for the quality of the environment that keeps our fish, plants, invertebrates, and corals flourishing. It is important not to introduce any contaminants which can affect the health or even survival of the aquarium inhabitants.

They have a powerful grip for grasping large objects and precision control for small, delicate objects, making it possible to work safely in hard-to-reach areas of the aquarium. They are designed to last for the life of your aquarium.
