Pet Health, Wellness and Safety

Health and safety are key considerations when traveling with a pet. Untended pets can hurt themselves in unfamiliar surroundings, and strange smells can easily spook them. Easing a pet through car sickness or settling them down for a trip ususally is just a matter of conditioning; however, there are times when a homeopathic remedy could help as well. This page has products to aid in what ails your pet.

Brake-fast® bowl's

Is your canine companion a chow hound ? — devouring their dog food in seconds. Well, the folks at Brake-fast have just the solution for you. Their Brake-fast® bowl's patented design prevents your dog from scarfing their food down. The three nob-like protrusions make dogs slow down as they need to eat the food around each of knobs, thereby reducing the chance of gobbling it up in seconds, re-eating their food, or getting Gastric Dilatation-Volvulus (GDV or 'Bloat'). Veterinarian tested and recommended, the bowls come in either metal or plastic (blue, red and black) and in three sizes — small, medium, and large.

Flush Doggy Disposable Bags™

Doggie pick up bags have been around for years stemming from re-using the ever popular and inexpensive plastic bags you get from grocery stores. While the public at large has become much more conscientious of cleaning up after their pets, the volume of pet bags and dog waste has hit new highs. It is estimated that each day the 71 million dogs around the country produce 29,000 tons of waste (which fills 3-4% of residential landfill areas) and often accounts for almost 90% of bacterial watershed pollution. So to combat these environmental issues, the folks at Flush have come up with a water soluble flushable dog bag that won't clog your toilets and will go a long way in reducing the impact on the environment. While there are other disposable bags out on the market — most are either too thin or too small making picking up a messy and unpleasant endeavor. The thicker-ply, biodegradable FlushDoggy bags are the perfect solution. Best of all, they donate 10% of every purchase to help fight against puppy mils.

Wagathas' Fetchstix & Biscuits

Country dog or city slicker? Well the dogs living out in more rural areas can go find all the sticks and branches they desire to chew on and tear apart. The less fortunate dogs in more urban areas and large cities are stuck chewing on more unnatural substitutes. Well, not any more. The folks behind Wagathas' Fetchstix have come up with a clever solution. They have collected all sorts of Moose Maple branches and cut them into lengths of 8" or 11" and bundled three to a bunch. Each of the stick ends has been rounded off so that they are smooth to the touch and chew. The bundles of sticks come with a whimsical "User Guide" or for those interested - your dogs name can be engraved on each stick. So urban dogs of all sizes will never have to do without a 100% natural wooden stick to chomp on again.

Wagathas also makes terrific all natural 100% organic dog biscuits in six scrumptious flavors. They are prepared with human edible ingredients without any fillers of any sort — so you and your dog could technically munch on them together. 9 oz. containers — $7.95-8.95 (they also come in cases)
