We researched helpful new pet products at the BlogPaws Social Media Conference, and today we’re sharing even more that we think will make life better for our dogs and cats.
(Be sure to catch Part 1 of “The Best New Pet Products” )
Both cats and dogs will go crazy over the taste and you’ll love how easy it is to hide the bitter taste of any medication.
- Easy to shape oral paste
- Does not stick to fingers
- Covers any size pill
- Highly palatable
- 30 servings
- All the taste with less fat & no mess
We’ve tested it for two weeks with Tripawds Spokesdog Wyatt Ray and he’s never been more eager to have his daily medication! Although the paste got a little firm in cooler weather, just take a bit and roll it between your palms to make it pliable.
Earth’s Balance Pill Paste is available in two flavors, peanut butter or bacon, and a wheat-free version too. Ingredients for the flavors are as follows:
Peanut Butter: Wheat flour, corn syrup, vegetable glycerin, vegetable oil, stabilized rice bran, spry dried pork liver, peanut butter, natural flavor, vegetable lecithin, salt, dried cheese, dried corn syrup, xanthan gum, sorbic acid and calcium propionate (to preserve freshness). Contains Peanuts.
Bacon: Wheat flour, corn syrup, vegetable glycerin, vegetable oil, stabilized rice bran, spry dried pork liver, natural flavor, vegetable lecithin, salt, dried cheese, dried corn syrup, xanthan gum, sorbic acid and calcium propionate (to preserve freshness).
Merrick Grain Free Dry & Chunky Can Recipes
When Wyatt Ray reacted poorly to a change in his daily kibble, a premium pet supplies retailer suggested we try their two best top-shelf grain-free kibble foods: Orijen Grain-Free, and Merrick Grain Free. We tried Orijen and it worked superbly, but the price was hard on our budget.
Thankfully at BlogPaws, Wyatt attended a doggie luncheon given by Merrick, and we were introduced to an outstanding Made-in-America food priced at less than top-shelf competitors but with the same excellent, whole foods ingredients.
Why Merrick Grain Free?
Merrick is made entirely in the USA from local growers. Based in Hereford, Texas, Merrick never uses ingredients from China. This high protein diet has deboned meat as the first ingredient in each recipe and every one includes vegetables, healthy levels of Omega 6 and Omega 3 fatty acids, as well as glucosamine and chondroitin.
Merrick Grain Free is a meat-based dry dog food using a significant amount of named meats and meat meals as its main sources of animal protein, thus earning the brand 5 stars.
We became Merrick fans when we learned that each of the five meat recipes utilizes the same base ingredients, so we can easily rotate different meats into Wyatt’s diet without throwing his sensitive belly into a tailspin. The five meat recipes include:
- Pork and Sweet Potato
- Duck and Sweet Potato
- Buffalo and Sweet Potato
- Chicken and Sweet Potato
- Texas Beef/Sweet Potato
Wyatt is enthusiastic about Merrick too, as you can see!
