The Super Cool Pets staff has received samples of the D.A.P. Dog Appeasing Pheromone Electric Diffuser and D.A.P. Dog Appeasing Pheromone Spray for review.
D.A.P. Dog Appeasing Pheromone reduces or even prevents stress-related behavior, say during thunderstorms, fireworks, visits to the vet, puppy anxiety or moving to a new home.
Female dogs secrete pheromones that comfort and reassure their nursing puppies. These "appeasement" pheromones have the same calming effect on adult dogs. D.A.P. mimics these appeasement pheromones to reduce or eliminate stress in dogs of all ages.
We personally have a storm-phobic Golden Retriever who lives in the lightning capital of the world, Florida, so we will try the diffuser and spray out on her as soon as the rainy season begins. She is not too comfortable with grooming either, so we shall have plenty of opportunity. D.A.P apparently takes a few weeks to be effective, so we hope to provide a report in May.
The Petego Pet Rolling Pack is a versatile pet carrier, serving as backpack or as a rolling suitcase. You can anchor it with your seat belt and use it as a car carrier. Or pack it up with your own personal possessions when you are on the go without your pet.
This pet trolley bag has large side windows and a mesh sunroof for ventilation and visibility with an inner leash for added pet security. Storage cover Included. Great for shopping trips, vet visits, hiking adventures and a travel bed.

Fleas and ticks can transmit disease, and many pet households would not be without an arsenal of flea and tick products to combat these nasty varmits.
It is generally agreed by experts these products can be appropriate treatments for protecting your pets and your family's health. Pet owners should carefully follow label directions and monitor their pets for any signs of an adverse reaction after every application.
Adverse reactions to flea and tick pet products range from mild effects such as skin irritation to more serious effects such as seizures. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is intensifying its evaluation of spot-on pesticide products for flea and tick control for pets due to recent increases in the number of reported incidents.
