Dog Sweaters in Stylish Reclaimed Cotton

Saturday, December 24th, 2011


These cute striped dog sweaters are made in the U.S. from re-claimed cotton fibers minimizing wastage from the clothing industry. They ingeniously re-use the existing colors of the reclaimed cotton so that no re-dying is necessary and then blend the fibers with acrylic to make a cozy and soft sweater for winter walks. The sweaters come in sizes to fit most dogs from 9” to 23 “ (collar to tail measurement) and are easy to slip on and machine washable. A great buy if you are looking for a stylish dog sweater that is eco-friendly too.

Spray-On Dog Sunscreen

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

Not all dogs need sunscreen, after all that is what their fur is for, but if you have a short haired white dog he or she may be getting burned through the fur. And pink noses and ears are often burned by the sun causing soreness.

This sunscreen is specially formulated for dogs and is the equivalent of a SPF15. It is a spray on formula, easy to apply and, unlike human sunscreen it has no toxic ingredients, so your dog can lick at it with no ill effects. This is quite a small bottle at 4oz, but fairly inexpensive and definitely worth it for keeping soft pink noses safe from the sun.

Costs $7.99 from Amazon.com

Soft Hemp Cat Collars

Saturday, March 26th, 2011

This Silly Kitty range of natural hemp cat collars is great for pets with sensitive skin or who just get irritated by other collars. The hemp is strong but very soft and wears well. The style is the safety breakaway collar design and is easy to put on, staying on fairly well, though determined kitties can get them off!

The best thing about these hemp collars is that cats find them comfortable and don’t have problems with them rubbing their skin or wanting to scratch the whole time. Plus they come in a great range of colors. Oh and of course hemp is a really eco-friendly choice with a low environmental impact, so these collars are good for your pet and good for the planet!

Breakaway Hemp Cats Collars cost $9.99 from Only Natural Pet Store

Natural Pill Pockets For Cats

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

Any cat owner will identify with the well-worn story about giving a cat a pill and ending up in ER. It’s never easy to fool a cat into taking a pill, but these tasty pill pockets seem to work with more than half the cat population. They are soft and taste of a delicious treat.

All you do is hide the pill in the hole and pinch together the pocket. The cat thinks she’s getting a treat and swallows without noticing the pill, unless she is very smart and picky!

The pill pockets also contain probiotics and vitamins C and E so are helping boost the immune system along with the pill. The 1.6oz bag contains 45 pills and comes in either chicken or salmon flavor.

Costs  $9.95 from Jake’s Dog House

Pet Hide-out in Hemp for Smaller Creatures

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

Any child with a pet hamster, gerbil, rat or guinea pig would be delighted with this home for their pet. Designed to go inside a cage or pen and provide a cozy hide-out, it is only six inches wide, so definitely designed for smaller creatures. It is made from recycled materials and hemp and is completely biodegradable so is a really eco-friendly choice.

Kids can color in the outside to make a beautiful home for their pet (in non-toxic pencils of course!) and the pet can customize it further by strategic chewing or gnawing. This would make a fun and inexpensive gift for small pet lovers of all ages.
