The Benefits of Turmeric

Posted by Alex Cochran on

Turmeric is a great for dogs (and people too) in that it helps with inflammation and allergies as well.  If your fur baby is suffering with allergies and/or inflammation Turmeric could provide some much needed relief.  Curcumin (the active ingredient in Turmeric) acts as a safe anti-inflammatory.  It also helps with Allergies and with digestive health as well.  Our Turmeric Bars are a great supplement/healthy treat for your pup.  PetiPet makes these in a "human grade" factory which means it exceeds the standards of most pet treat factories and they could make treats for human consumption.  This limited ingredient, soft treat may...

Al Pals Out and About

Posted by Alex Cochran on

A lot of people may wonder why we decided to take on the task of starting our own business....especially during the era of Covid!  While it's true we want to be considered "successful", our view of success looks a little different.  We were able to participate in a local dog event this past weekend and, despite the rain, had a chance to meet lots of new people.  This enables Alex (aka Al Pals) to get out be able to use his social skills.  As parents, we want him to be able to excel in areas that he can and our...
