Thinking Really Natural

February is National Pet Dental Health Month

Oral health issues of the gums & teeth are common in both dogs & cats - by age 3, over 75% have some form of tartar buildup on teeth, especially if they are not receiving regular teeth cleanings at home. As with people, regular oral care can prevent oral disease from manifesting into serious, life threatening health problems.

Tartar buildup on teeth should only be removed by a licensed veterinarian. Once tartar is removed, at home care can prevent future troubles. Petsmile meets the Veterinary Oral Health Council effectiveness standards for inhibiting plaque growth. It's quick, easy & doesn't even require a toothbrush - just swipe a finger with Petsmile on across you pet's teeth 2 to 3 times weekly. Cats & dogs LOVE the natural London Beef Broil taste so they think they're getting a special treat!

Prevent Odors in Small, Exotic Pet Habitats

Small exotics, pocket pets & messy birds often throw food, pee & poop in their cages, creating a dirty, stinky habitat. And despite regular cleanings, bacteria attaches itself onto surfaces & into crevices of every item in your pet's cage, resulting in pungent odors.

Unscented Cage & Toy Wash is a convenient soapless, rinseless cleaner that makes it easy to keep a clean habitat without time-consuming cage cleanings that can take hours, waste water - and still leave lingering odors behind.

Keep things clean year round with a unique, non-chemical odor-prevention solution. The biodegradable product is safe for pets, humans and the earth. And like everything at Really Natural Pets, you can use it in your own habitat too (...not that any of us humans ever create odors!)

Calories Matter - Before, During & After the Holidays!

The most reliable, timeless principle is "Calories In" (CI) vs. "Calories Out" (CO). Calorie management offers real life flexibility when overall balance is followed. Generally, more physical activity allows for more calories without weight gain (and vice versa).

  • If overall CI > CO, weight gain occurs
  • If CI < CO, weight loss occurs
  • If CI = CO, weight will be maintained

The above principle applies to pets AND people. And as the body ages, gets ill or develops disease, the formula may need to be slightly adjusted. For example, a body typically needs fewer CI as it becomes older.

Keeping low calorie snacks readily available helps us manage our weight any time. 5 Calorie Chia Dog Treats are tasty, generously-sized biscuits for athletic, diabetic or overweight pups in all life stages! For people, small pets & birds, our Sweet Treats have half the sugar & calories as regular dried fruit and no sulfur.

Lavender & Pets

Lavender is considered safe to use on, or around, your pets. You can add a single drop to Buddy's bed to add a subtly calming scent around bedtime. Its natural disinfecting properties don't hurt either, since our pets sometimes do gross things!

Considered an effective remedy to help purify and clean stale air, it has been used to gently, but healthfully, disinfect hospitals and sick rooms in Greece, Rome and Persia. It is also used in many Twinkle & Company products, including skin-soothing Herbal Healing Salve, designed for pets AND people!
