Safe Paw Ice Melt Is 100% Safe For Pets, Children & The Enviroment

I personally love safe paw ice melt. Living in New York and other snowy wintry states lets face it..You need a good ice melt! I was always sceptical of a lot of ice melts on the market. I don’t want anything toxic around my home, pets and my children.  I was so excited when I discovered the Safe Paw Ice Melt.

A couple of things I love about Safe Paw is that  it contains no salt. Did you know that Ice melter’s that contain salt is harmful to your pets, children and the environment?  Well, it is.  Another thing I love about this product is its coloring. Its a green colored pellet which helps you and the consumer distinguish it from rock salt and salt based ice melter’s.  This product is also safe on plants, shrubs, asphalt, concrete, pavers and flooring.

This is also a great product to use if you own a businesses so your customers can avoid slipping and can also watch there step!

“Gaia Enterprises,, Inc, the manufactures of Safe Paw hire approximately 250 adults with disability to produce there product instead of using machinery. In a time where our economy is suffering, they stay focused on providing jobs with benefits to people who generally have a rougher time finding work than others.  Even though machines could save money on the cost of the product,  they stand for something bigger.

Now lets talk about how this product works:

No other ice and snow melter works like Safe Paw. It is totally unique. Safe Paw is a patented dual-effect compound made of a modified crystalline amide core infused with special glycol admixture and traction agents.

This composition gives Safe Paw a two-way timed released action. The liquid component starts melting ice instantly while breaking surface tension. This allows the crystal-core to penetrate and destabilize  ice which speeds up melting. All this while proprietary traction agent provides slip protection.

Safe Paw gives you another advantage. Unlike other products, Safe Paw attracts solar heat to provide extra melting-power during daylight hours.

Once Safe Paw has melted the ice and snow, it leaves an invisible “shield” that prevents ice from sticking to surfaces for up to 3 days. This “Teflon effect” makes shoveling easier.

How to Use Safe Paw:

Safe Paw is highly concentrated. You don’t need to use as much Safe Paw as you would use with salt or other ice melter’s.

Safe Paw retains heat better than other ice melter’s. Store indoors, at room temperature, to ensure maximum performance.

•Spread Safe Paw before winter precipitation. This will create a barrier that prevents ice from bonding to surfaces for about 3 days. If there is accumulation within that period, you won’t have to chip away at underlying ice when shoveling.

•Ice melter’s sometimes need a little assistance on black ice. Scratch or roughen black ice with a shovel before applying Safe Paw. Once the surface tension is broken, Safe Paw will go to work.

Safe Paw is a great traction agent. Keeping a jug in the car can help you get out of a slippery situation. If your car gets stuck in snow or ice, clear the ruts and sprinkle Safe Paw around tires to increase traction.

Safe Paw is very effective so you don’t need to use as much as other products. Applying excessive amounts may lead to the browning of grass or temporarily coloring surfaces. If this occurs, reduce the amount of Safe Paw you are using and follow these steps: ◦If grass browns, water the affected area and hold off on fertilizing. Let nature take its course. The color should return by the end of spring.

◦Surface coloring from overuse is temporary and will fade over time when exposed to water and sunlight. To speed up the fading process use OxyClean or a similar product.

Safe Paw is 100% salt-free and environmentally safe so you can use it in more places than salt-based ice melter’s. Use Safe Paw anywhere you are concerned about ice including roofs, gutters, cars, stairs, decking, and flooring.

If you have not tried Safe Paw yet I guarantee you will love it! Safe Paw may be purchased in a 35 lb Bucket or 8 lb Jug at www.OnlinePetDepot.com

Paragon Pet Treats. What Makes Them So Different From Other Pet Treats?

Paragon Pet Treats are a great healthy dental treat for dogs. They are naturally vegetable & potato-based and containing no chemical additives, they are designed to help clean the teeth and freshen the breath by encouraging dogs to indulge in their natural instinct to chew.

There variety of textures keeps dogs interested in chewing for longer, enabling the many small protrusions on the crocodile and hedgehog shapes to get right in between the teeth to do a thorough cleaning job.

These treats usually take my dog 20-30 minutes to work through them. The Hedgehog and the Alligators are his favorite shapes. They come in 3 different colors but the they taste the same.

What I love about these treats mostly is that they are HEALTHY. They have no CORN, WHEAT, SOY, GLUTENS and 100% digestible. There are also a low calorie treat.

These treats come in many other shapes and sizes. If your looking for a healthy treat. Try these for sure.

Finally A Good Puppy Pad That Absorbs Well

There are many different ways to house train puppies. One option for house training your puppy is to teach him to pee on a house training pad.

Teaching your puppy to pee on a pad is not that hard but takes a little bit of patience. There are many training pads designed for the purpose. Try to pick a training pad that wont ruin your floors and maybe ones you can get a couple of uses out of.  Good Habbit Training Pads are what works for my dogs. They come in Pink for the Girls and Blue for the boys. They also have the sticky adhesives underneath to prevent the pads from sliding all over your floors and they are very absorbent.

You can purchase these pads in packs of 50 or 100.  I always purchase the 100 count boxes. I go through them quickly and its much more cost effective.

 

Is Your Dog or Cat Suffering From Urinary Tract Infections? Solid Gold Berry Balance Can Help!

Berry Balance

A natural cranberry and blueberry extract with marshmallow and vitamin C to help support the healthy functioning of the urinary tract. For use in cats and dogs prone to struvite crystals and bladder infections. This product helps to balance urinary tract pH, to dissolve struvite (Magnesium-Ammonium-Phosphate) crystals, which may develop in urine if it is too alkaline.

Cranberries and blueberries contain a substance called Hippuric Acid that has been shown in recent studies to have antibiotic activity, which helps to prevent bacteria such as E. coli from adhering to the bladder wall, thus inhibiting the development of infections.

Blueberries contain powerful antioxidants, which cleanse the body of harmful free radicals and promote good health. They are also thought to be helpful for bone and joint problems associated with free radical damage. Did you know that we also use blueberries and cranberries in our dry dog and cat foods?

Urinary tract blockages and infections are serious conditions and immediate veterinary attention should be sought if your pet shows signs of frequent urination, discomfort, or straining. Berry-Balance can be used to support the urinary tract and help reduce the risk of further infection or struvite formation. This product should not be used for calcium-oxalate crystals, nor should it be used in conjunction with a medical or commercial “acidifying” diet.

Increased stress can predispose pets (especially cats) to urinary tract disorders because fear can lead to reluctance to make trips to the yard or litter box and drinking water. Increased fluid intake is recommended for animals prone to urinary tract problems. Canned foods provide more moisture than dry kibble, and plenty of fresh drinking water should be available at all times.

Protein, Min. 9% Fat, Min. 6% Fiber, Max. 19% Moisture, Max. 7%

Rice Flour | Cranberry Extract | Ascorbic Acid | Blueberry Extract | Marshmallow | Silica Gel | Natural Flavoring | Available in 3.5 oz

What You Can and Can Not Feed Your Guinea Pig.

Guinea pigs love fruits and vegetables about as much as humans love ice cream and candy, which is great because fruits and vegetables are an important part of their diet and keep them happy and healthy!   Different guinea pigs have different preferences, but generally, they love to sample a variety of different fruits and veggies. With my guinea pigs, carrots, peppers and dark lettuces are a surefire hit. If you encounter a guinea pig that is picky and won’t eat any fresh produce, talk with your veterinarian about your options for vitamin C fortified pellets like Oxbow and just make sure you get the right nourishment into your little friend. Timothy hay is important for there diet as well.

Here is a list of some of the fruits and vegetables that guinea pigs particularly love and that give them the best nutritional benefits. Fruits are high in sugar so it’s best to view them more as treats, and avoid any sudden major changes in diet until you know how your guinea pig’s tummy reacts to things:

• Red Pepper (or green/yellow pepper. Red has the highest vitamin C concentration)
• Carrots – both the root and the green tops are perfectly safe for your guinea pig.
• Apples – just make sure they don’t have any seeds.
• Oranges
• Leafy greens like red lettuce, romaine, Boston lettuce, (be sure to feed leafy vegetables in moderation to avoid diarrhea, and feed spinach a bit sparingly to avoid potential kidney problems.)

• Cucumbers
• Broccoli (in moderation since it can be gassy and cause a gas pain)
• Green beans
• Grapes
• Bananas
• Dandelion Greens
• strawberries (in moderation)
• oranges or clementines. A helpful way to feed these to your piggie if they’re being picky is to scoop out some pulp from half an orange and leave some in it so they can lick it without needing to chew on it if they’re not diggin’ the texture
• spinach
• cherry tomatoes in moderation
• cilantro
• dandelion greens
• parsley – either curly or flat. They love it and it smells delicious when you’re tearing some sprigs off the bunch to give it to them!

Foods you CAN NOT Feed your guinea pig:

Iceberg lettuce – this won’t kill your guinea pig if you give him or her a little piece, but it has virtually no nutritional value, is quite fibrous and watery. It’s been known to give guinea pigs diarrhea. With the great selection of other more leafy, dark lettuces available, just avoid this one and go with one of the others.

  • Any type of cabbage – like iceberg lettuce, a small piece is not likely to severely harm or kill your guinea pig, but it’s very gassy and not good for their little systems. Stay away from it if you can.
  • Cauliflower – also very gas-producing.
  • Potato peelings – not that this would be something you’d be likely to give your piggie anyway, but toxins can exist in potato skins, particularly if they’ve begun to turn green, and they can be poisonous. Just toss them in your garbage disposal or trash instead of your piggie.
  • Raw beans (this doesn’t mean green beans. This means things like raw, hard kidney beans, split peas, pinto beans, etc.)
  • Shelled nuts or seeds, particularly things like sunflower seeds or ‘bird seed’ type mixes, pumpkin seeds, peanuts, etc.
  • Rhubarb – the leaves of the rhubarb plant are poisonous, and the stalks are very, very sour.
  • Any type of meat or fish. Guinea pigs are vegetarian and looove a salad over a steak any day.
  • Dairy Products – while many stores will offer ‘yogurt drops’ and other ‘treats’, dairy is not healthy to feed your guinea pig and can actually cause problems. Feed natural treats like veggies instead of store brand treats. It’s less expensive and your piggie will be much happier.
  • Chocolate, coffee or other caffeine-containing products.
  • Alcohol (this should go without saying!!)
  • Cookies/bread*
    *you can feed a small piece of cereal like a cheerio from time to time as a treat, but they will likely not even like it, so it’s best to just avoid this altogether!
  • hamster food, gerbil food, rabbit food, or any other non-guinea pig food. Often these contain seeds, which are a big no-no, but they also have a different balance of vitamins and minerals which aren’t suited for a guinea pig’s dietary needs.
  • corn kernels. Popcorn isn’t a very good idea either. Guinea pigs choke easily and think of how easy it is for us humans to get popcorn kernels stuck in our mouths and throats!
  • sugary foods like donuts, candy, or soda
  • Ice cream.
  • Any processed or fried foods that you would eat, including potato chips/nachos or french fries.
  • Cheese
  • anything spicy. jalapeno peppers, anything with cinnamon, etc.
