A Safe, Non Stick Surface To Easily Clean Pet (and Human) Messes

Birds & small, exotic or messy pets often sling food & go potty inside their habitats, creating a messy, smelly habitat. Debris glues itself onto surfaces & into crevices, making removal difficult & time consuming.

While steam cleaners, abrasive tools & harsh products may help remove sticky gunk, no matter how hard or often you clean, the mess returns because cleaning doesn't create an "easy to clean" surface.

Cage & Toy Shield creates a natural, non-stick surface that makes cleaning quick & easy. The no rinse Shield is safe & effective on ANY surface that will come into contact with pets AND humans, including kitchen & bathroom counter tops, pet habitats, eating surfaces, cars - and more. It is an unscented, non-chemical treatment with odor elimination solution. The unique, plant based formula provides a non-stick - but not greasy - surface that also helps prevent rust formation.

Giving Back Through Pet Therapy

Project PUP (Pets Uplifting People) is a nonprofit, volunteer organization providing pet visits to hospitals, health care facilities, rehabilitation & hospice centers in the Tampa Bay Area. If the animal passes all parts of the screening process, it will be certified through Project PUP to become a visiting therapy pet. Our very own Sophie became a Project PUP Volunteer in 2011 and has brought comfort & joy to terminally ill patients of all ages. Studies continue to show the simple act of petting an animal lowers blood pressure, slows down heart rate & decreases cortisol levels. Pets keep our mind & body healthy and pet therapy provides a way to connect pets with people who are unable to have a pet due to illness or age. There is a lot more demand than there are volunteers.

Obesity in Pets

Yet another article on pet obesity in The Suburban in Quebec indicates over half of the dogs & cats in the U.S. are overweight, which results in disease & a decreased lifespan. If your pet is overweight, we recommend a vet visit to ensure there is no underlying medical condition. Typically, a 10% decrease in daily food intake, combined with 15 minutes of exercise a few times per week makes a big difference. Whether you engage your pet in rigorous play, or take Buddy for a short walk, excess fat will get burned. Check out nine year old Sophie strut her stuff below! And...
