At our animal hospital, we get asked a lot about products we recommend for many situations. So here are some of our favorite products-I'm sure we will leave some out-so keep an eye out for round 2!
One of the most used products in our clinic-the Chase n' Chomp. Yes the name leaves something to be desired, but the product is great! Food of all types can be placed in it and the dog or cat can be kept busy trying to get the food out, while we do exams, vaccines, and more. And it sticks to things! Suction it onto a cabinet so your dog can lick away while you trim nails, brush them and more!
And of course we have to fill it with something! So we should buy stock in spray cheese! Cats and dogs love it! We steer away from peanut butter due to allergy issues. And we wouldn't want to feed a lot of the cheese daily (well Trouble The Cat might ear her fair share) but it is a great distractor!
And there are Kongs! We LOVE kings-again why didn't we buy stock in the company. At any time if you check our freeze we have an assortment of kongs filled and frozen with tasty treats for dogs and cats. And don't forget the Kong Wobbler for dogs and cats alike-fill it with dry food and let them have fun trying to get all of the food out. Caution-use the kong wobblers on carpet-they can be loud and hard on wood floors! My dogs will spend an hour getting every last morsel out of these!
Looking for a good joint supplement? Phycox is our product of choice. Even my pickiest eater will eat the Phycox Granules on her food! And along those lines, we use Welactin as our fatty oil supplement with great success.
What about some non food products?
For dogs that pull on their leashes we are a fan of the Easy Walk Harnesses. Our guys use these for their walks and when walking three large dogs the harnesses are life savers.
Even Trouble The Cat likes her harness!
Need a tough crate pad? We love the Primo Crate. Even our toughest chewer hasn't destroyed these crate pads.
Just a few of our favorite things!
