Making Adjustments: Complete Dog Prebiotic & Probiotic Blend

Posted on

DSC01423

As you may remember from our Kinn Kleanbowl post, we’re experimenting with feeding the boys raw food (more on this soon!) As I’ve been learning, one of the first steps towards preparing your dogs for a transition between kibble and raw food is to get them started on a dietary probiotic. We were excited to try the Complete Dog Prebiotic & Probiotic blend because I really thought the bacon/cheese flavor would appeal to Scooter’s picky side.

Having your pups on some sort of probiotic before transitioning to raw can help their bodies and digestive tracts accept the upcoming changes more readily. Our guts are our largest immune organ, so it only makes sense to treat them right! When you properly care for your pups guts, their bodies are able to be healthier throughout. Probiotic bacteria are full of microbes that produce enzymes and vitamins that boost the immune system function. They support growth of good bacteria, and inhibit the growth of bad bacteria as well as prevent infections and reduce digestive upset/issues.

When we first started using the Complete Dog Prebiotic & Probiotic Blend, I was crushing up the little tablets in Scooters food.

It didn’t take long for him to volunteer to just gobble one down on his own though!

The Complete Dog Prebiotic & Probiotic is veterinarian formulated with 11 different probiotic strains and a prebiotic booster that makes those 11 probiotics more effective! All of this goodness is packed into a bacon cheddar chewable tablet.

Even if you’re not working to transition your pups to a raw food diet, probiotics could still be a good addition to their daily intake. Consider a probiotic supplement for your pets to enhance their overall well being.

A daily dose of probiotics will also provide your pup:

  • Digestive support and regularity
  • Immune Boost
  • Gut rebalance
  • Ease digestive issues stemming from food reactions, stress and more

Do you currently feed your pups a pre or probiotic blend? 



Traveling with Rejeneril Supplement

Posted on

We’re back from a rather recent road trip with the boys, where we drove all over Oregon and California, hitting up as many of the US National Parks as we could along the way. We had an absolute blast on our trip, it’s always a great way for us to bond as a family/pack. This week long road trip did mean that we drove long hours, took plenty of time to play, and camped out most nights. The dogs loved it, as this is totally their idea of good time!

One of our biggest challenges when taking these kind of camping and backpacking trips with the dogs though is ensuring they have the proper supplementation along. Because we carry all that we need on our backs, sometimes for several days before coming back to the car, packing light is essential. Many supplements require refrigeration, or come in bulkier bottles of tablets that we don’t necessarily have the space for. Which is why we were happy to have a tiny, yet potent bottle of Rejeneril to pack in Bears backpack for our days camping out. The bottle is small and lightweight, and doesn’t require refrigeration.

Rejeneril is a cellular supplement that works to benefit pets of all ages, and both of our boys can benefit from its use. We packed our bottle of Rejeneril especially with Bear in mind, since he turned 13 years old the week after our big trip. We knew when packing, that he was going to need some ‘extras’ on our trip to stay physically comfortable, and Rejenril was one of the items we brought along in order to increase his comfort level. Rejeneril is a patented, scientifically validated supplement for pets. It is a cellular regenerator, full of antioxidants that help your pet recover quickly after physical and environmental stress.

Giving Bear and Scooter their daily dose of Rejenril each day was as simple as adding a few drops to their food. The dosage is based on weight, and neither dog takes issue with it added to their food.

Some of the health benefits your pet can experience from Rejeneril are:

  • building a strong immune system
  • reduction of joint pain/arthritis
  • set the foundation for a disease-free life
  • improve overall health and longevity

Do you pack your pets vitamins or supplements when you plan to travel together? What have you found works best for your pups needs? 



Scooter finds #RoyalCanin at Petsmart

Did you know that Petsmart® stores carry a full line of Royal Canin® dog food and cat foods? This is a brand of pet food that our picky eater Scooter has always enjoyed. There are plenty of specialized food blends to choose from, depending on your pets age, size, and nutritional needs. Recently Scooter and I took a trip to our local Petsmart, and found them to be no different, in fact, the selection of Royal Canin pet foods was one of the biggest I’ve ever seen.

We were still able to quickly locate the blend that is best suited to Scooter though, the Indoor Life blend, which just so happens to have a Pomeranian on the bag ;) While this is not a breed specific formula, is is nutritionally appropriate for his lifestyle of living exclusively indoors, having small teeth in constant need of cleaning, and being only moderately active.

It’s so nice that Royal Canin provides pet food based on your dogs age; (puppy, adult, senior) and breed, as well as lifestyle; (indoor, spayed/neutered, weight management and more). These specialized nutritional solutions allow pet parents to easily choose an option that is best suited to their pets particular needs.

Royal Canin was founded in France in 1968 by a Veterinarian named Dr. Jean Cathary. He envisioned a pet food company that was grounded in science, one that would satisfy the nutritional needs of our pets. Now, all of the Royal Canin pet food that is sold in the USA is made in plants in the US and Canada which is very important to us when we are considering a dog food for either of the boys.

{Black and White Sunday} Camp Sweater

On our recent week long camping trip with the dogs, one of the products that we found we were most appreciative of was Bear’s Gold Paw Series Portland Pullover Jacket. Of course we love the name, but we truly adore this thing; easy on, easy off, warm enough but he was never too hot. We had some pretty chilly nights in the tent together, and Bear slept in the Portland Pullover jacket each night (one night we had snow on our tent in the morning!) with his Astoria Overcoat on top. He’d wear it well into the morning, while we packed up camp, past his breakfast time, and we’d finally take it off right before piling back into the car to hit the road again.

Do your pups (senior or not) need a little help staying warm while you’re out adventuring?
