PET INSURANCE:

If you’re like me and don’t want to put yourself in the position to choose between a massive vet bill and your dog’s well-being, pet insurance is a great solution. I did my research and discovered top-rated Healthy Paws. I love, love, LOVE them! They reimburse FAST, and even cover holistic treatments like acupuncture and chiropractics.

Filing a claim is as simple as taking a snapshot of your pad statement with your phone and tapping the send button on their easy to use app. Or you can file online or via mail if you prefer.

Here’s a 10% OFF for LIFE promo they sent me. If you’ve even considered insurance for your furry friend, be sure to check Healthy Paws out. You’ll be grateful you did! You can find them HERE.

HOT WEATHER FAVES:

Cooling jacketRuffwear Swamp Cooler Jacket for Dogs – Did you know that your dog cannot cool themselves once the outdoor temperature is higher than their body temp? That means – even if they’re in the shade you could be harming your pet. My rule of thumb is, if it’s 90 degrees outside, I won’t take my pup out. Even so, the surface temps can burn their paws, so I limit his outdoor walks to 20 minutes very early morning and just before bed during the summer months.And he pops out the dog door during the day if needed.

I purchased this easy to use cooling vest for my pooch and it works well. I soak it in cold water, wring it out and it gets the job done. I tried another vest with ice packs in it, but it is cumbersome, and for the short walks, this water cooled vest is a snap.

While I haven’t yet used a cooling pad, they can be a great option during the summer months to keep your pup happy and healthy. These are two top rated designs, depending on what your prefer.

SunscreenEpi-Pet Sun Protector Sunscreen Spray– I suggest spraying into the palm of your hand and then smoothing over the belly, chest, ears, nose, back of the legs and anywhere else exposed to the rays (or reflective rays) of the sun. Tip: Their underbelly can easily burn from the ground reflection…. don’t miss their tummy! NOTE: SPF for humans can be toxic for canines. It’s well worth the price tag to keep your pet burn free.

YEAR ROUND FAVES:

Paw Conditioner – Musher’s Secret – Why paw conditioner? That’s what I thought.

The answer is PROTECTION. Now I use Musher’s all the time to keep my pooches pads (and in between) well conditioned, preventing painful cracks. The label says it protects from hot surfaces as well as cold, but, I cannot find documentation of this, so defer to a comfortable surface temperature during the summer. If it’s 80 degrees or higher don’t risk burning your pup’s footsies! TIP: if your dog has allergies – many dogs (especially smooth coated) do – I’ve found this creates a barrier on the pads and helps prevent allergic reactions like swelling, redness, rashes and irritation due to contact with grass, dirt, etc…

Best dog chew – Prairie Dog Elk Antler Split Chews are my favorite. Promoting teeth health and satisfying your dog’s chew desire is vital to a happy and healthy pet. Antler chews are good… SPLIT antler chews are THE BEST! I like these naturally shed Split Antler Chews. I have a pit bull and they last weeks!

Tooth care kit – My boy also like Nylabone Toothpaste, specifically the Peanut flavor. I got the kit and then bought some finger brushes for hard to reach places.

FOR COLD WEATHER:

Dog coatShearling Fleece Dog Coat – The absolute best! Made of faux shearling it wears well, is priced great and looks amazing! I got them in different sizes as my pup grew. He absolutely loves wearing it. And, I know it keeps him nice and cozy on our cold morning walks:) LOVE!
