Last year Ember was lucky enough to try some of Pure Pet Food’s Meaty Sweetie Treats. These treats were a perfect introduction to the Pure Pet Food brand, so I was very excited for Ember to try some of their food.
Ember is doing really well recently on her current food Guru, but we have been wanting to add a little bit of wet food to her evening meal, I instantly knew Pure Pet Food was the best first option.
The food we are lucky enough to try is Chicken Dinner, which is grain free and designed for sensitive dogs, perfect for Ember as she has quite a sensitive tummy.
Despite claiming to love and care about animals, many pet food companies test their food and elements of their food on lab animals. These animals, many of whom are bred for the sole purpose of testing food, are subject to inhumane and invasive tests.
Whilst some dogs love car rides, Ember included, some dogs struggle with being in the car for a long period of time. If, in your judgement, your dog would enjoy a road trip with you, here’s some tips I have collected to make travelling with your dog an enjoyable and safe experience.
I first found Busters Bisquits on Instagram and was intrigued by the natural ingredients Romana uses to bake the treats. Named in memory of her beloved Buster, these treats are hand baked with love and attention in small batches in her kitchen. I was so excited when Romana offered to send Ember a trial pack of their classic treat and their new Vegan biscuits.
Summer is on it’s way, which usually in the UK means a few hot sunny days followed by clouds and rain, but this year has been a little different with the current heatwave we are enjoying. However, with this sunshine, it’s important to remember how our dogs get affected by the heat. Here are a few tips to help keep your dog cool for the summer.
In August 2015 Ember picked up a tick on her stomach whilst we were on holiday in the New Forest. Ironically, the same year in April 2015, the Big Tick Project was launched in the New Forest. The Campaign was started to raise awareness about ticks and tick-bourne diseases in the UK, to help pet owners protect their pets and themselves. Each year, veterinary practices collect data and complete a questionnaire to contribute to The Big Tick Project’s Campaign. The information helps to make up a UK threat map, which shows the risk of ticks in local areas. Find the map here, is your local area a high risk? Mine is! You can find out more about The Big Tick Project here. The Big Tick Project are also sponsoring Dog Fest this year which will be taking place in June in Chesire and Hertfordshire, you can get your tickets here!
When I first found out about Pure Pet Food on Twitter I was intrigued by the unique process they use to make their dog food. So when Mat from Pure contacted me about Ember trying some of their treats I had to say yes. That and the fact that Ember loves food (of course).
Healthy, homemade, trustworthy treats your thing? Then check out Wellybix, they are made by Alison in her County Durham home with ingredients fresh from her garden and of course taste tested by her adorable dog Welly.
You probably know how much we love Guru, their food is delicious, the trip bones are essential for any holiday and their sausage slices ake the best treats. And now they’re smashing the Christmas game too with their stocking (it’s now unfortunately out of stock, but you can still get their contents on their online store!)
A few weeks ago, Ember tried some Neoh and Nobo Banana and Turmeric treats, you can find our first impressions here. Long story short she loved them, so when Neoh and Nobo officially launched I ordered the rest of the collection straight away. Neoh and Nobo’s brand aesthetic is everything and their website is so fresh and modern, with plenty of information about their treats. Along with information about the brand and treats, there is also information about how they are made, the ingredients they use along with their benefits and let’s not forget their eco seal (paw print) of approval.
Neoh and Nobo’s treats are all made with natural and ethical, not forgetting healthy ingredients and the brand is created in memory of their dog Neoh. All the ingredients are human grade and ethically sourced, the treats are made in small batches which helps to ensure quality and the packaging used is environmentally friendly too.
