Totally Natural Grooming Wipes

Natural Grooming Wipes at Uptown $12.95 My dog loves organic grooming solutions – problem is her idea of what constitutes good grooming is radically different from mine. She thinks rolling in natural mud, dips in scummy ponds, and digging up some fresh earth is one true organic path. I have other ideas. These grooming wipes might be just the thing to have handy in the car to clean up after her “spa treatments”. However, your car is more likely to be a new Lexis or Volvo than a vintage Camry. Tell you the truth, I probably will continue to use my beat up towel I keep handy for such a purpose – reusable and saves putting more paper products in the landfills. My dog and I tend to be more skeptical types. Still, some people may marvel over the Green Tea Leaf Fragrance, the Aloe Vera moisturizer and the “exotic Hawaiian Awapuhi extract” to enhance your dog’s coat shine in the wipes. They also offer a Hypo-Allergenic and Fragrance free...

Thinking of some good Karma for my Dogma

Karma Organic Dog Food USDA 95% Certified Organic Dog Food I have been increasingly worried about mainstream dog food. I have tried off and on to switch my dog to an healthier organic brand from the Eukanuba that she has been eating since a puppy. But every time we try, no matter how long we gradually introduce (typically a month or so of very gradually increasing the percentage) she will start having some rather nasty digestive side effects I won’t get into. I am thinking of giving it another chance with Karma Organic Dog food as it looks so promising and I am tired of giving my money to the big corporate dog food companies that are more concerned about their bottom line than the safety of our pets. Hopefully I am not just being suckered into a marketing scam but I am impressed that Karma seems to use such high quality ingredients, with No artificial preservatives, colors or additives. They also state ” All our foods are free from chemical additives of any kind, including preservatives such as Ethoxyquin and BHA/BHT, which are frequently found in pet foods but are banned from human use in many countries.” They claim to strive to make the healthiest dog food in the world, providing USDA-inspected chicken, turkey and lamb, whole grain rice and barley, fresh fruits and vegetables. If anyone uses...
