I know that my three dogs and my cat are making my life so much better during these long winter days. They’re always here to led a (large) ear and to cuddle up next to the fire, in the beanbag chair, in the car, and sleeping on my legs during those long winter nights. They are SO loved and SO loving and always there for us. So I want to always be there for them! I have a fun and useful list of dog treats, toys, and health products that will have your dogs and cats feeling and doing their best! These are the brands we’re loving right now to show that deep love to our pets. They deserve it more than ever. It’s 2021, and here’s how we’re spoiling our pets these days:
How to Spoil Your Pets in 2021:
1 – Biggies Almond Butter & Coconut + pb n’ joy Peanut Butter & Banana from Fruitables:
Three dogs and one love for Fruitables® blend healthy fruits and veggies, plus proteins. My dogs are quirky, feisty, and fun, and so are these treats! Fruitables uses real fruits and veggies packed with nutrient-rich benefits that are low in calories and always deliciously healthy, and they have so many treats to choose from so you can buy a variety and always have something new to give.
Fruitables Biggies Almond Butter & Coconut:
Fruitables Biggies are packed with ingredients you can smell, and offer one-of-a-kind flavor mash-ups to give a bigger and bolder and crispier taste and crunch. This variety is two times larger than the original baked treat, is bursting with flavor and aroma, and is made with real almond butter and coconut. I give these when it’s time for a big treat!
Fruitables pb n’ joy Peanut Butter & Banana:
My dogs, like me, love the creamy taste of peanut butter. And these treats combine real peanut butter with healthy fruit for a soft, chewy, protein-packed treat your dog will love. They are perfect for an after-walk burst of energy or to split and share with their fellow dogs. They’re made with delicious real peanut butter and bananas and have a chewy texture that dogs will love. When you’re looking for healthy dog treats, use these. Find out more about Fruitables here.
2 – Dog Toys from Multipet:
Multipet brand has been around for over 20 years! They make progressive toys for today’s pets. We have the Aromadog Calm Mini Fleece Full Body Bear and Aromadog Calming 10” Fleece Full Body Flattie. These toys are intended to help soothe dogs with separation anxiety, fireworks, trips to the vet, and more! They have a patented technology that ensures that when they’re squeezed, the squeaker releases a calming blend of 100% therapeutic grade essential oils into the air to keep dogs relaxed and happy. These plush toys are safe for pets and I find they’re ideal for tossing, fetching, and snuggling too. Lucy is our dog with separation anxiety, so I love that we have dog toys that are intended to keep her calm, relaxed, and happy. Athena and Astro are both our nervous rescue dogs, so I love that these toys provide comfort to all three of our dogs.
3 – Ear Relief Wash & Dry Ear Cleaner Kit + Advanced Hip & Joint from Vet’s Best:
These are products you definitely want to keep in your pet pantry (is that a thing?) for everyday care. These products combine veterinary science with natural, plant-based ingredients so you don’t have to choose between effectiveness and safety.
Vet’s Best Ear Relief Wash & Dry Ear Cleaner Kit:
This is a simple two-step solution for fast, lasting ear relief – using naturally effective ingredients. Our middle dog, Astro, has super big ears and he is prone to dog ear infection. In fact, it happens several times a year. We love that this kit cleans and soothes raw, itchy, and smelly dog ears, and keeps Astro’s ears fresh and dry between baths. Plus, he gets fast, effective relief from red, raw, greasy, itchy, and irritated ears. And both of the formulas contain natural ingredients in gentle and soothing combinations, including chamomile, clove oil, tea tree oil, and aloe vera.
Vet’s Best Advanced Hip & Joint:
This product promotes joint health and strong bones while removing free radicals, and all in a chewable tablet that has been optimized for absorption and digestion. Vet’s Best Advanced Hip & Joint helps maintain normal healthy cartilage, connective tissue, and joint mobility, and is Veterinarian-formulated with Glucosamine, MSM and Chondroitin. The included healthy antioxidants remove damaging free radicals. If you’re experiencing dog arthritis, this will help with pain relief. Find out more about ear care here, and hip and joint tablets here.
4 – Enzymatic Brushless Oral Care: Drinking Water Additive, Toothpaste Gel and Breath Freshening Spray from Oratene/ZYMOX:
Now here are three products that are a must have in our house. Oratene Enzymatic Brushless Oral Care uses the power of enzymes to help keep your dogs’ and cats’ teeth clean, their breath fresh, and their gums healthy. And these are veterinarian-approved products that make caring for your pet’s oral health easy. No tooth brushing! These 3 products are safe for dogs and cats with no toxic xylitol, no detergents, chlorines or alcohols (bonus for multi-pet households).
1 – Drinking Water Additive – One 4oz bottle makes up to 15 gallons, so that your pets get the benefit of enzymes washing over their mouths every time they drink water. Shake well and add 2 pumps to approximately 1 quart (4 cups) of fresh drinking water daily. Stir and replace daily.
2 – Toothpaste Gel – This is awesome for us because one tube provides up to 4 months supply. Simply apply 1/2 strip to gums twice a day (with a finger or brush, but brushing isn’t necessary), and it features a convenient catheter tip for easy application. The pet’s tongue and saliva will distribute the product!
3 – Breath Freshening Spray – This delivers a fine focused mist, and one bottle provides approximately 900 pumps. Simply shake well and spray 3 or more pumps onto teeth, gums and inside cheeks.
All products are easy to use. We had been searching for a dog toothpaste and a cat toothpaste, as well as ways to do dog dental care right at home. Use discount code: Oratenepet to save 10% at www.zymox.com. Valid 2/1 – 3/7.
5 – Doggos Doing Things: The Hilarious World of Puppos, Borkers, and Other Good Bois by Creators of @doggosdoingthings from Running Press:
Oh, the fun! As a reader and a dog mom, I so appreciate this gift book for dog parents, from everyone’s favorite doggie Instagram: @doggosdoingthings. This book features at least 50% new content alongside fan favorites, bringing a viral sensation from the screen to the page! Do you have a dog lover, meme lover, and dog and meme lover in your life? They need this book, which pairs more that 150 adorable photos of puppos of all shapes, sizes, and breeds with ridiculous captions. Find out more about it here.
6 – iDig from iFetch:
Boy, the fun! One thing I didn’t expect from iFetch, not because it isn’t awesome but because Lucy is a champion digger, is that it uses up a lot of time! What a wonderful product! iFetch provides great mental and physical stimulation for dogs of all sizes, keeps dogs entertained, tires dogs out, and keeps our cushions and gardens safe from digging! I love that this digging toy provides a positive outlet for my three dogs’ innate desire to dig, and also keeps them occupied while I work from home!
I usually fill it with tiny treats, or I break bigger treats (like Fruitables) into tiny pieces and hide them in all of the pockets of iFetch. Then I watch while Lucy finds them all! Right now, use the code: BABBLEFEB to get 15% off an iDig digging toy (either the iDig Stay or the iDig Go) at goifetch.com
So, how do you plan to spoil your pets in 2021?
