From eating dog food and dog treats… to learn how to properly bath dogs and even finding a laundry detergent with enzymes that will immediately take smells away along stains…The Healthy Pet Media was an interactive and fun event that trigger our curiosity and made us enquire on every single product that was exhibited there. Todays pet owners are searching for products that will enrich not only their pet’s life but also their own. It is wonderful to see how companies pay attention and are catering these needs with quality products that can be used by the whole family- Humans and Pets included.
For example; we hear often by pet owners how they give their dogs snacks from their own food. But have you tried the other way around and eat from their pet food? Thought this was an impossible idea. At The Healthy Pet Media Showcase we were introduced to EVANGER’S food for dogs and cats. Their presentation was simple. Servings of chicken or beef in fancy plates with forks for us to enjoy. The big surprise after you tried it, it is the meat you will find in their cans of pet food. Their motto , if you can eat it so your dog! All made with natural ingredients – no additives – with a selection of chicken, beef, rabbit, salmon and pheasant along veggies. It is truly impressive when you compare to other brands in the market not forgetting it was delicious ! Your dog will agree with me !
There was also Sweet potato crisp treats by Loving Pets that can be served on a party tray and no one would ever beleive it is for pets. The concept of sharing and also of knowing the pet is getting something completely safe and healthy, gives the owner peace of mind.
But not all was about food at the event. After your pooch enjoy all the goodies it might be wise to have them do exercise so they do not keep on the weight. The Martial ARFS provides activities and training to have a well balanced dog. Their doggie exercises can help training, give confidence and create a stronger bond between human and dog. If you are not close to their facilities, they also offer books and Dvds for DIY at home using their fun dog gym equipment that can also be purchased. Imagine Fido having his doggy gym right next to yours!
The real treat was to meet Dr. Michael Fleck,DVM. He may be the only veterinarian who is also a licensed Esthetician or “human facial skin care specialist”. He created a line of skin care products called Epi-Pet to improve conditions of the skin from irritation and blemishes to the aging process in pets. Dr. Fleck passionately explained about his products and guess what!…you can use yourself too! We could literally stay all day listening to his very informative and educational speech. From protecting our pooches from the sun to how properly bath your dog or the importance of brushing. It was all a wealth of knowledge and we are excited on trying this product line with our Chihuahuas. We will keep you posted. Think my dogs just found the fountain of youth! Viva Juan Ponce de Leon….NO…Viva Dr. Michael Fleck!
