Tomorrow Artie, Buddy, and Coby have their very first visit with Santa at Twelve Oaks Mall in Novi, MI. I’m excited, but not sure how they will react. In preparation, we practiced smiling for the camera at home. Check out our good and not-so-good photos below!

Greenies Freshmint Teenie Dental Dog Treats

img_8500

At a recent vet appointment, the doctor said Artie’s teeth hardly have any tarter and they aren’t due for a cleaning. This made my day, especially since he’s 7 and I don’t brush his teeth. I credit his clean teeth to rawhides and cleaning bones. One of his favorites is Greenies Freshmint Canine Dental Chews. He loves the taste of them, and I love how they clean his teeth at the same time.

Less Expensive Pet Meds

less-expensive

For seven years I’ve been buying our monthly pet meds from the vet. The prices seem to be rising so I decided to search online for the best deals. There are so many options for less expensive pet meds. It’s important to look at the medication cost and shipping cost when finding the best deal! After some searching, I found two sites that offer great deals on both Frontline Plus and Heartgard.

  1. Pet Care Supplies – I was able to get 12 doses of Frontline Plus for small dogs for $89 total. Be sure to look for special discounts. Shipping is always free! At the vet, I paid $18o for 12 doses!!! This is a huge difference (it almost makes me sick). You might also look for rebates offered through Frontline.
  2. 1-800-PetMeds – I found a good deal on Heartgard on this website. They do require a prescription from the doctor. Your prescription can be authorized by phone call, fax, or mail. I was able to order 12 pack of Heartgard for $60.28 compared to the vet at $84.

If you are like me and you like to save money, check out these two sites for your pet care needs. I’m disappointed I waited so long…lesson learned!

 

Evening in the Park

Last night we ventured to our community dog park just down the street. It’s something we haven’t done enough of this summer. The boys always love to go to the park, even though they spend most the time right by our sides. They are people (and dog) watchers just like their mommy!

 

Purina Pro Plan Savor Tender Strips Made with Real Turkey & Avocado

Purina Pro Plan Savor Tender Strips Made with Real Turkey & Avocado are made with real turkey and avocado. In fact, turkey is the #1 ingredient and there aren’t any artificial flavors or colors! I believe this for two reasons…the label states this information and Artie, Buddy, and Coby (ABC) devour these tender treats!

Recently ABC were given the chance to try Pedigree Dentastix Large Fresh Dog Treats. And of course, they loved them. I love them because they designed to promote oral health & breath-freshening in adult dogs. I’m ashamed to admit that I do not brush their teeth, so I try to give them treats that help with their dental hygiene. These treats are good for reducing plaque, tartar, and bad breath!
