Spring is coming and along with it, hopefully nice weather, but also spring flowers – some of which may be poisonous to our pets. There are several common plants which we need to be cautious of, along with symptoms which come with poisoning. Dogs can be poisoned by eating just part of the plant, leaves or bulbs from the plant and heavy pollinated plants could disperse on their back and be licked off. Here’s a handy picture guide to some common poisonous plants which you may come across this year, along with some useful information.
Dogs love Kale is an American dog treat brand which make healthy, all natural, gluten and grain free treats. They key ingredient is Kale, which is super antioxidant and contains a ton of essential vital vitamins. Benefits of Kale include;

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!)
Lily’s Kitchen never fails to kill it with their Christmas collection and this year is no different. With their trusty advent calendar and turkey and cranberry treats back again this year along with Christmas gift sets, they are joined by a doggy biscuit tin which is a cool play on Christmas biscuit tins for humans. The star of the show this year, however, is the Gingerbread dog, who can be found in the biscuit tin and there is even a fiction book written staring Lily, Lulu and The Gingerbread Dog, along with a recipe to recreate the Gingerbread Dog.
With the 1st December coming this Friday! Don’t forget to grab your dog an advent calendar here.
Last weekend was Ember’s third birthday and I found her the perfect birthday present, a Wet Nose Dog box. This box is actually a monthly subscription box, but you can also get special one time boxes for special events such as birthdays, Christmas and gotcha days.
All the products included are hand selected which means they are all high quality and even separately packaged, which made opening the box even more fun. There was also a treat for us humans and even a birthday card for Ember.
Signing up for a box is super easy. Simply enter your dog’s name, size, gender and birthday. There is also a box where you can add in any special information, such as dietary requirements and if they are tough chewers. As Ember’s was for her birthday, Sandra from Wet Nose Dog even contacted us to ensure the box was personalised for her birthday.
You probably know by now that Ember and I, especially Ember, are a little obsessed with healthy dog treats. We love trying them out and sharing our favourites. Ready to meet a new favourite? Launching 1 May (tomorrow!) Neoh and Nobo, a bakehouse for dogs, have created a range of healthy and tasty dog treats.
In an attempt to stop Ember acting like a kid on smarties, the vet’s words not ours, we decided to change Ember from puppy food to a fully fledged adult diet. I hadn’t heard a lot about Guru, but I had seen a bit of hype on social media so I was interested to try it out, the team at Guru were more than happy to send a sample which, went down a treat.
