National Dog Day 2015

National Dog Day started in 2004 as a way to inform the public of the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year. It also acknowledges family dogs and dogs that work selflessly each day to save lives, keep us safe and bring comfort. To find out more about National Dog Day, visit this site http://www.nationaldogday.com/#!about1/c141h.

In honor of National Dog Day, here are some of my favorite ABC pics.

Lloyd & Lucy’s Pet Supplies Best Value Glucosamine Hip and Joint Supplement for Dogs

Disclosure: I received a free container of product from Lloyd & Lucy in return for my honest review. Affiliate links are attached.

Luxating Patella is a common condition in Yorkshire Terriers. Luxating Patella is when the knee cap pops out-of-place due to a misalignment of the knee. This can be an inherited condition or happen as a result of an injury. Two of my Yorkies were born with this condition. Patellar luxation is often divided into four grades of seriousness. Artie and Coby currently have low-grade issues. To help prevent the condition from getting worse, all three dogs are taking Glucosamine, which is a joint supplement. They have been taking it for just over a year as prescribed by our veterinarian.

Recently, I was given the opportunity to try Lloyd & Lucy’s Pet Supplies Best Value Glucosamine Hip and Joint Supplement for Dogs. This supplement contains high-quality ingredients such as Glucosamine Hydrochloride, Chondroitin, MSM, Vitamin C and Manganese. The product facts and directions for use are listed below in the chart.

91DBjvhCgBL._SX522_There are a few things I like about Lloyd & Lucy’s supplements. First and most important, this supplement has made my life easier because my three Yorkies love the taste of the liver flavored tablets. They actually think it’s a treat!  There is no need to hide the tablets. After they eat, I give each dog a 1/2 tablet, just as directed. The tablets are scored, so they are easy to break in half with your hands. It’s really so simple!!

Second, these supplements are manufactured in the USA. Most recalls for dog treats, supplements, and food occur for products manufactured outside the USA. For this reason, I try to buy dog products that are proudly made in the USA.

Third, Lloyd & Lucy’s product is a great value at 180 chewable tablets per container. Even though I am giving these supplements to three dogs, they will still last 120 days (since my dogs only need 1/2 a tablet).

Lastly, the company is so confident that your dog will love the taste of their supplement that they offer a 100%, no questions asked, taste guarantee. Just let them know within the first 45 days, and they will refund your first bottle – NO QUESTIONS ASKED! Not many companies offer that kind of guarantee. So what do you have to lose…start your dog on Lloyd & Lucy’s Best Value Glucosamine Hip and Joint Supplements today!!!

A Warning to Pet Owners Who Use E-Cigarettes

Electronic Cigarettes can be more dangerous to pets for several reasons:

1. Nicotine in any form is poison for pets.

2. E-cigarettes and their associated paraphernalia often contain nicotine in more concentrated levels than in traditional tobacco products.

3. The more concentrated liquid cartridges and larger-volume containers of nicotine liquid pose the greatest risk for poisoning in pets.

4. Many of the liquids contain flavoring agents which are enticing to pets.

5. The most dangerous thing about liquid nicotine is that it can be absorbed through the skin or mucous membranes of the mouth in dogs, cats, and humans.

Please see more about the dangerous of E-Cigarettes and how to help your pet if he or she comes into contact with liquid nicotine by viewing the following article.
