SOMETHING ABOUT PETS THAT MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT
When a pet is stressed, it can lead to serious health and behavior conditions that are difficult and costly to manage. The good news is, there are some new ways to alleviate stress, like this new CALMZ anxiety relief system for dogs. It combines high-tech innovation with acupressure for dogs in a revolutionary new non-invasive, drug-free treatment that soothes common anxiety that often arise because of thunderstorms, fireworks, encounters with strangers, travel, separation and loud noises.  When the device is activated, the clinically proven neurosync technology® takes over. Your dog will hear and feel a therapeutic medley of classical music with a specific tone that results in a calming vibration. This combination of therapies stops the production of adrenaline and increases blood flow to the brain to help reduce anxiety in dogs. For more information, visit www.calmz.com

TREATS DO YOU RECOMMEND FOR PETS
My best tip here is to choose treats with ingredients you’d feel good about giving your pet every day. My favorite are these whole grain recipe dog biscuits made with a medley of ingredients such as real chicken, beef, lamb or turkey.  The Milk Bone New Farmer’s Medley™ biscuits are oven-baked and made with protein and vegetables and they’re available in both grain-free or whole grain recipes. No fillers, corn, artificial flavors or preservatives, because the best ingredients make the best treats. They’re available in four varieties: Grain Free With Lamb & Spring Vegetables, Grain Free With Turkey & Pumpkin, Whole Grain Recipe With Chicken or Whole Grain Recipe With Beef.  Available at select national retailers.

TIPS FOR HANDLING PET ODORS
This is a question I’m often asked.  And most cat owners think the answer for big odors is all these giant bags or boxes of cat litter. But it’s not! I like World’s Best Cat Litter – it lets you do more with less litter by harnessing the concentrated power of corn. Only World’s Best Cat Litter uses a patented process to compress naturally absorbent corn into concentrated granules that trap odors deep inside and form tight clumps on contact. It comes in five 100% natural litters that all deliver concentrated power!  You can choose from Clumping, Multiple Cat Clumping and Lavender Scented Multiple Cat Clumping, and the new Advanced Series that’s purpose-built to solve specific problems! Zero Mess™ and Zero Mess™ Pine Scented guarantee fast and easy cleanup with 2X better clumping and more odor control with less litter! Find your formula at www.worldsbestcatlitter.com

TIPS FOR CLEANING YOUR PETS
I always say that a clean pet means a happy pet owner, and welcome to the next generation of dog-bathing. It’s called the BarkBath a faster, easier and less messy way to bathe your four-legged family member. This portable bathing system allows you to bathe your pet practically anywhere and anytime with virtually no mess.  Specially designed nozzles get beneath the fur and down to the skin to allow water and shampoo to wash the skin clean while a soft suction pulls dirt and water away into a separate dirty water tank. The system works with any length of fur short or long and one tank of water will completely wash an 80-pound dog, while the no-rinse shampoo formula leaves your dog’s coat feeling clean and fresh.  It retails for $149-dollars.
