Organic Homemade Kitty Treats



Over the holidays I usually purchase my friends and families pets safe and organic treats for the holidays but it never really occurred to me to make them myself. I know it is a little more time consuming but with all of the other holiday backing going on why not right? I found this quick and simple cat treat recipe that any cat would love.

cookie sheet
½ cup organic whole wheat flour
½ cup non-fat, organic powdered milk
½ cup cooked and chopped organic chicken
1 tbs. organic vegetable oil
1 organic egg, beaten
¼ cup water
1 tbs. chopped, fresh organic catnip

1. Mix together the powdered milk, flour and catnip in a bowl.
2. Add the egg, organic chicken, vegetable oil and water and mix until dough becomes sticky.
3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
4. Grease the cookie sheet to make sure the treats don’t stick.
5. Form treats in to any shape or size you like. You can even use cookie cutters if you have ones small enough.
6. Place on cookie sheets to bake for 10 minutes.
7. Take out of oven and flip treats to cook for another 10 minutes so they cook evenly on both sides.
8. Remove treats from the oven and let cool before giving them to your kitty.

The FURminator

The FURminator

The FURminator




It’s that time of year where your fur baby is shedding to puff up for their winter coat. Personally my I have to vacuum and dust everyday to keep us from being over whelmed by fur from all 4 of our little lovies. The last time we took our pups to the local pet store they recommended The FURminator a million times to us. They even brushed out both of our babies to show us how well it worked.
I’m not going to lie that sucker literally got the hair off in no time flat and for whatever reason the pooches didn’t even put up their normal fight about being brushed. The groomer at the store even said you could use it on cats (of which we have 2) if we wanted. The little button on the top of the brush even removes the hair from the brush for you.
I am seriously in love with The FURminator. My house needs to be vacuum and dusted only 3 times a week now haha. If you haven’t tried The FURminator yet and you are being overwhelmed by your pets shedding I really do suggest it. The FURminator is a little pricey but to be honest it was completely worth it. If you prefer to take your pet to be groomed go ahead but apparently this is the very brush they are all using.
Right now Only Natural Pet Store is having a pretty cool sale to help reduce the cost of your FURminator Coupon Code NATURALPET15 – 15% Off Only Natural Pet Brand Products!

CocoTherapy For Your Pet

Coco Therapy

Coco Therapy

I take coconut oil for myself and I know the benefits coconut oilhas on humans but apparently Coco Therapy is just as healthy for your cat or dog. Coco Therapy has pretty much the same benefits as it does for us. There is nothing more important than making sure your pet is well cared for and healthy. Coco Therapy used as a regiment can really be beneficial to the overall health of the pet you love so much. I would start off in small doses to make sure you pet doesn’t have any allergies to coconut oil.
You can bake coconut oil into treats, add it to their food or even let them lick it right off of your hand.

Coco Therapy Coconut Oil is by far the best and richest natural source of lauric acid (the other source- human breast milk). Lauric acid fights and destroys viruses and various pathogenic bacteria.
Coco TherapyCoconut Oil besides being a great source of dietary fiber, provide animo acids and antioxidants; are rich in medium chain fatty acids (lauric, capric, and caprylic acids), and provide many other health benefits. Coconut chips will also gently elevate the metabolism, provides a higher level of energy and vitality, speeds healing, and can help overweight pets lose weight and sedentary pets feel more energetic. Even more it can enhance the skin and coat, improve digestion, and reduce allergic reactions.
These treats are the perfect alternative to yucky, over processed pet treats that are made with artificial ingredients.
Recommended Dosage: 1 teaspoon per 10 pounds of body weight or 1 tablespoon per 30 pounds of body weight. Start slowly and then build up.
A great way to feed: place the coconut oil in your palm and let the warmth of your hard melt the oil, then let your dog or cat lick it from your hand. This is a great way to bond.

    May’s Eco-Pet Pick

    Perfect for traveling, rides to the vet, thunderstorms Happytails Sleepytime Tonic was developed to relax and calm an over-anxious dog. My dog is a rescue and although she was rescued almost 10 years ago she is still nervous and scared in certain situations. There are many different products out there claiming to calm but this one really works.
    Happytails Sleepytime Tonic blend of all natural ingredients address underlying predispositions and weaknesses which cause anxiety in your pet. Some of these behaviors are the result of breeding and some are genetic. These predispositions exhibit themselves in the repeated reaction patterns of fear, apprehension, aggression or hyperactivity.
    Put a few drops in your dog’s mouth twice a day. You will see your dog grow calmer and more relaxed. If he or she is not comfortable taking the Happytails Sleepytime Tonic orally you can add it to a treat or put it on his/her food. Happytails Sleepytime Tonic is an excellent complement to training designed to break habits like barking, cowering or aggression.
    You will see calming after about 20 minutes and consistant changes after only a few days. The important thing it to administer consistantly.
