Spring is in the Air

TGIF !!!!!  Woof Happy Friday all my fur friends and I hope you are all looking forward to the weekend the way we are.

We have had a busy week but also celebrating that the sun is shining and with the Daylight Savings we are now able to get to the park when I finish work. WOW what a concept, to feel the warm sun on your face after all the cold rainy weather. Not sure how long it will last but we are enjoying it immensely.

On Tuesday I took Layla for her annual check up. Growing old means being more careful, keeping double eyes on all and in a nutshell making sure she is getting all the correct nutrients in her food which I as a Jewish Mother is always worried about. They had done blood work on her a month ago as she had lost 1.5 lbs and I was really concerned BUT the happy news is she is back to her normal 15 lbs and nothing to worry about, she got a clean bill of health. I am so relieved over this as I know now I must be doing something right.


I spoke to the vet about her not wanting to go out after 7 in the evening and the vet told me not to worry, because of her one eye going blind she might be afraid of the dark so just to let her do what she wants and if she needs to go out she will tell me, which is what she normally does. 


Now as you all know I cook for Layla, and one of my biggest worries is that her food is not properly balanced so I am always doing research, checking and have come across the most amazing supplements which even my vet said she can see the difference in her since I have been giving them. Plus they are made in the USA which is the most important of all.

What are they :

01. Raw Paws Hip and Joint Support for Dogs and Cats : Organic hip and joint supplement is beneficial for all pet life stages from puppies and kittens up to seniors! This joint supplement is a healthy blend of green lipped mussel powder, ginger, turmeric curcumin, pumpkin and ceylon cinnamon. Giving this daily supplement offers natural arthritis relief without the nasty side effects from pet arthritis medicine! 

02.  Raw Paws Mineral Rich Organic Sea Kelp Daily Supplement for Dogs and Cats : This excellent natural source of iodine supports glandular functioning such as thyroid health and metabolism. With an improved metabolism, the overall health of your pets will improve by an increase in energy and decrease in inflammation and infection. Sea Kelp promotes oral health by reducing buildup of plaque and tartar for healthy teeth. Being the #1 source of natural trace minerals, sea kelp helps to strengthen the immune system, promotes a healthy skin and coat, reduces itching and fortifies the blood for an overall healthy, vibrant life! Sea Kelp also has 60 different vitamins, minerals, and trace elements as well as 21 amino acids. Made with zero artificial ingredients.

And I think the most important for our pampered pets are the TREATS which Layla is addicted to now. They sent me :

01. Chicken Jerky for dogs only  02. Freeze Dried Green Tripe which is for both Dogs and Cats 03. Freeze Dried Duck which is for both Dogs and Cats .

Layla is at this moment in Treat Heaven, every time she hears a bag she thinks its treats.

Poison Prevention Awareness Month.

March has arrived and the rains are still here. When will they stop. The good news is that California is out of drought the last I read but the grounds are so soaked that they are not absorbing the rains anymore. One muddy mess in the dog park LOL which Madam does not like.

March is also an important month as it is Poison Prevention Awareness Month.

Please keep us safe !

This is so important and it reminds us how important it is to keep our pets safe from anything toxic which leads to illness and sometimes death. So Layla decided that this week our blog is going to focus on this subject to make sure that all our fur friends are safe both in the house and outside. The way we child proof a house and garden, we should pet proof the same way.

01. Plants can be poisonous especially azalea, oleander, castor bean, sago palm, Easter lily or yew plant material eaten by an animal can be fatal.


02.. Cleaning products – those are dangerous and should not be lying around in the house. Please store them in a place that your pets have no access to. I personally only use Apple Cider Vinegar in the house for cleaning, etc as that way I know if Layla walks on the wet floor she is safe.


03. Medications – never give your pets medications unless directed by a Vet. Keep all medications locked away so they cannot find them.


04. Chocolate is a BIG NO. 

05.  Household products like coffee grinds, play dough, fabric softener sheets and more are all toxic to your pets.


06. Automotive products – please do not leave them lying around the garage and if something spills make sure to clean up.


07. Flea Meds – all pets have different reactions to these so please check with your vet before you administer them to your pets.


08. Always read all instructions / cautions of any product before using it in your house, garden or on your pet. 

09. Keep your pets inside or away from any insecticides  Also keep your pets away from fertilizers on the grass or in the garden. All of them can be toxic. Plus make sure you store these products in a place that is inaccessible to your pets.


10. Do not use products for dogs on cats and vice versa unless it says you can. 


11. If you are uncertain about the proper usage of any product, contact the manufacturer and/or your veterinarian for instructions.ASPCA National Animal Poison Control CenterSuite 361717 Philo RoadUrbana, IL 61801

Phone : (888) 4-ANI-HELP


I am aware we do these reminders all the time but I feel by reading the above, remembering we are keeping our pets safe, no extra vet bills or expenses and most of all we have a happy healthy home.


So now that Layla has woofed all this she is going back to bed LOL,
Be safe and have a great week, With love from Layla
