ONE EASY WAY TO STAY HEALTHY IN THE SUMMER

Staying hydrated is one of the keys to being healthy, and it is easy to do with the PUR Advanced Faucet Filtration System. It is certified to reduce 99 percent of lead and over 70 other contaminants, more than any other brand. Due to the long journey water takes through an aging infrastructure; the water we drink at home may contain unwanted contaminates, including lead and pesticides. This is a bit alarming considering the many ways we use water from washing fruits and veggies to brewing coffee and tea. Let’s not forget the water we give our pets. The PUR Advanced Faucet Filtration System is easy to install, there are no tools required, and it starts below 35 dollars. It is the superior solution for convenient, filtered water straight from the faucet. Bottom line, when it comes to quality of water, all families deserves the best.

TIPS TO HELP PETS SURVIVE THE SUMMER

Anxious behaviors in dogs can be quite common. While they can be present year-round, the summer months often include activities that can exacerbate the issue, with triggers such as thunderstorms, summer travel, fireworks, house guests and more that can take a toll on pets. Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Supplements has introduced Calming Care, a new management option for owners whose dogs experience anxious behaviors. It is a probiotic supplement that is shown to help dogs maintain calm behavior. Keep in mind, Calming Care may take up to six weeks to see results, so talk to a vet to see if it is the right choice.  Dog owners can get more information and save $10 on their first order of Calming Care at www.proplanvetdirect.com/
