With the holidays coming up, we were wondering how many people take special holiday photos and include their pets. Do you celebrate with your furry friend? Send us your picture and we’ll put it up online. Ours will be up shortly.
Many people take dietary supplements or vitamins. And increasingly, they’re likely to give them to their pets, too.
As many as a third of U.S. dogs and cats may receive vitamins or supplements. The most common are multivitamins, supplements to support arthritic joints, and fatty acids to reduce shedding and improve a coat’s shine, according to a 2006 study published in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association. Pet owners also may give probiotics to alleviate gastrointestinal problems or antioxidants to counteract the effects of aging, such as cognitive dysfunction.

Did you know that there was an online version of webmd for your pet? This website can help you diagnose some health issues that your pet may be having.

Starting at Elburn Days, we will be debuting a special treat, dehydrated cantaloupe. Yes, you read that right, Cantaloupe. I know your saying is it safe for my pet? Yes, for both dogs and cats!
These seasonal melons make a yummy and nutritious treat. They pack lots of vitamins C and B-6, plus fiber and potassium. Here’s what else cantaloupes have a lot of: beta-carotene, which may be good for your dog’s vision. Studies have shown that beta-carotene can help prevent or reduce the growth of cataracts. Cantaloupe is also good for dogs because it is particularly non-allergenic, so most dogs can stomach it with no adverse allergic reactions.
Elburn Days are coming! From August 15-17 the Elburn Lions will host Elburn Days. During this three day festival, we will be displaying at their craft show. Come visit our booth at Elburn Lions Park we’ll have some new items for your furry friend!
We are humbled and proud of the great reception to our products that we’ve been receiving at our markets. Rover’s K9 Snacks wants to thank our customers by starting a “Frequent Buyer Program.”
How does the program work? When you make a purchase, you will receive a buyer card. Every purchase you make will be noted on this card. When you buy 10 snacks, you’ll be able to pick one snack of your choice for FREE! It’s just our way of thanking you for your patronage. Don’t worry if you forget your card, we will give you another one and as long as you accumulate ten purchases, you’ll get your free bag.
