Ok, I know we’re called Rover’s K9 Snacks, but we also care about our feline friends. All of our pets are subject to dealing with fleas and ticks, as well as us, too! Nothing makes our skin crawl than the thought of some nasty little bugger on our bodies. Here’s a great article called appropriately named “What Every Pet Owner Should Know About Preventing Fleas and Ticks.” This article helps debunk some of the myths out there about pests and you pet. Read the article.
It’s finally warming up, it looks like we might have a summer after all! With warmer weather we’ll all be going outside and that means our furbabies will be joining us. We need to keep in mind that the sun, sand, water, and bugs can also be damaging to them as well as us. Vetstreet.com has written a great reminder article that will help all of us be safe.

Did you know that we offer seasonal and specialty items at our farmers’ markets? Rover’s K9 Snacks has product that changes with the seasons. At most markets we offer something different. It may be a new treat that we are developing or pet bandannas. Examples of this may be bandannas for an upcoming holiday or a seasonal sports team. During the summer we have in-season fruits and vegetables that are dehydrated such as cantaloupe. You never know what you may see when you visit us at a market. Check our calendar and come see us for a special!
