Swedencare Introduces Mini Dental Dog Bones with the Proven Oral Care Benefits of the ProDen PlaqueOff® System

Toy and small dog breeds can now more easily enjoy the proven dental health benefits of the ProDen PlaqueOff® system. Formulated specifically for smaller dogs, the new Mini Dental Dog Bones from SwedencareUSA are the only dog chews available on the market to offer this system. They made their official public debut at the 2019 SuperZoo trade show. Slated for August 20–22, 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada, SuperZoo is the most-attended pet industry trade show in North America. According to Mercola’s Healthy Pets site ,“It’s imperative that you match the size of the bone or chew with the personality, size and health of your dog.” In the article, Dr. Karen Shaw Becker stresses, “Two important questions dog parents should ask before offering their pet a bone or chew are: 1) Is it nontoxic, and 2) Is it a good fit for my dog?

The new Mini Dental Dog Bones from SwedencareUSA provide a resounding yes to both questions for toy and small breed canine owners. Designed specifically with smaller breeds in mind, the mini bones are shorter and skinnier than the Original version with all the same proven ProDen PlaqueOff® dental benefits of their predecessor.

This extension of the Swedencare Dental Bones line helps clean teeth, reduce tartar and freshen breath. The American Kennel Club says that “one of the most commonly recognized health issues of small breeds is dental disease.” The combination of relatively large teeth and small mouths in such breeds “results in very crowded conditions that lead to dental disease.”

The only dental chew on the market today with the proven PlaqueOff® System, Swedencare Mini Dental Dog Bones offer extended dental benefits to the breeds that need them most. They scrub away plaque and tartar then help keep teeth clean and freshen doggie breath.

The new mini bones are available in two dog-tempting flavors: Vegetable Fusion and Vegetable Fusion & Blueberry. Both flavors are made from natural sea kelp with vegan probiotics. They are also grain free and gluten free as well as naturally rich in Omega fatty acids. VCA (formerly known as Veterinary Centers of America) says such fatty acids can reduce shedding, promote growth of the undercoat, reduce tendencies to inflammation and help resolve inflammation.

Jiminy’s Dog Treats: Cricket Crave and Good Grub

Jiminy’s, the premier producer of sustainable and eco-friendly cricket protein dog treats is excited to announce their new products at Global Pet Expo in Orlando, Florida from February 26-28. Jiminy’s will be unveiling their first insect protein dog foods in two new flavors; Cricket Crave and Good Grub. With these two new insect protein dog foods, Jiminy’s is seeking to combat the effects of climate change by challenging both the pet industry and pet owners to rethink traditional meat proteins.

One of Niko’s favorite things to do is feeding Cami. With all the extra food from the high chair he’s giving to her, she definitely gained weight! We have been searching for a way for them to continue bonding through food but with a lower calorie option. So who know crickets were the answer!

These new formulas are set to become the most sustainable and eco-friendly dog food options available on the market; with no greenhouse gases produced and less land and water use vs. traditional protein-based dog foods. Switching one dog from a chicken-based diet to a cricket protein diet saves 480,000 gallons of water per year!

Imperfect Foods

Imperfect Foods, the online grocer that’s creating a better food system and fighting food waste, with some exciting news. 

 

Imperfect is now serving Las Vegas, bringing affordable food to the area while expanding their efforts to fight food waste and create a better food system. 

For background, Imperfect Foods offers ugly produce, affordable pantry items, and quality meat and dairy, sourced directly from farmers, growers, and food purveyors. Imperfect delivers these goods directly to customers’ doors through a customizable subscription service that’s up to 30% cheaper than grocery stores.  Customers can fully customize their experience by choosing a box size, and selecting from 50-60 produce items (organic and conventional) and over 200 other grocery items including lentils, flour, quinoa, bread, dairy and protein (which includes meat alternatives). 

For some additional background on the company’s impact and the food waste issue:

  • 40% of all food goes uneaten, and the problem isn’t limited to just produce – while 20 billion pounds of produce go to waste on farms every year, an estimated 133 billion pounds of food go to waste at the grocery store and in our kitchens. Often times, perfectly good dairy, meat and shelf-stable goods are wasted due to arbitrary beauty and packaging standards, lack of transparency and regulation in expiration date labeling.

  • Imperfect Foods has recovered 86 million pounds of food since launching in 2015 and through its food rescue model has created a revenue stream and new food distribution channel for over 787 farmers and food purveyors across the country. 

We had a lot of fun with our box of produce and whatever we didn’t cook to eat, we juiced! The selection of fruit was delicious and perfect for 1 week of what we usually get. Sometimes it is daunting to buy groceries and thinking about what to buy and trying to waste as little as possible. Give Imperfect Food a try!

Why Spring Could be the Best Season to Visit Vegas

Visiting the fabulous Las Vegas is a trip that can be enjoyed at any time of year, but to get the very most out of any vacation, it pays to plan ahead and choose the best time of year. 

 

Splitting the year nicely into quarters, we’ve got Vegas experiences in spring, summer, fall, and winter. There are pros and cons to any time of year chosen; however, for many visitors flocking to the gaming hub of the world, it’s spring that proves the very best season to visit Vegas. 

 

With fewer tourists visiting the city during the earlier part of the year, there’s a great deal to be had on plenty of hotels, and a chance to really bag a bargain. There is great weather and even a fantastic selection of events including the NASCAR weekend and EDC Las Vegas. 

 

So let’s get into it and find out precisely why spring could be the best season to visit Vegas. 

The Weather

The first piece of the puzzle that goes into deciding on a date for any trip is the weather–and when considering Las Vegas, it’s no different. 

 

Defining spring as from early March to late May, visitors who select this time of the year will find themselves in Las Vegas in the most comfortable season. A table of Las Vegas’ average weather statistics during the spring months can be seen below: 

 

Month  Average High Average Low Sunny Days Humidity 
March  70 49 83% 33% 
April  78 56 87% 25%
May  89 66 88% 21%

Table: Las Vegas average weather statistics during the spring months

 

March kicks off the season with average lows of 49 and highs of 70, ending with average highs of 89 and lows of 66 in May. Humidity decreases as the months progress, with March facing an average humidity of 33% and spring ending with just 21% in May. 

 

Everyone has a different preference when it comes to their favorite weather criteria–some even prefer cooler climes, rain or snow–but it’s safe to say that spring is a very strong contender for a majority of visitors. Just don’t forget to pack a few light layers, since temperatures will cool significantly once the sun hits the hay. 

Great Events

Needless to say, there’s always plenty to see and do throughout Las Vegas and the March-May calendar is no different. 

NASCAR weekend (March)

Race fans fire up your engines; it’s the NASCAR weekend kicking events off this Spring. 

 

There’s very little better than the octane-fueled energy that visits Vegas for the NASCAR weekend, the whole city transforming around this superb event. With the main event taking place at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the NASCAR comprises 400 miles of racing that should really be on every fan’s bucket list. 

Water lanterns in the park (March)

The Las Vegas Water Lantern Festival is one of the most beautiful events of the year.

 

Located at Sunset Park, for the price of admission, visitors will be able to create their own lantern complete with illumination from an LED candle. When the time comes–8:30 p.m. to be exact–guests launch their lanterns in the water, producing a picturesque scene that’ll fill Facebook photo albums for years to come. 

St Patrick’s Day (March)

We all know that Vegas is the party capital of the world, and those who love a drink and a dance will adore spending St Patrick’s Day in the city. 

 

Head to O’Sheas at The LINQ or Ri Ra Irish Pub inside the Shoppes at Mandalay Place for an authentic Irish feel and the absolutely essential–and perfect–pint of Guinness. With live music, gaming tables, cornhole, and beer pong, there’s no better place to celebrate.

Great Vegas Festival of Beer (April)

One for those die-hard beer drinkers now, with the Great Vegas Festival of Beer falling in April in the fabulous city. 

 

The streets of downtown are transformed during this beer festival, making it the perfect occasion for any foodie or beer lover. With more than 500 craft beers featuring plenty of local and regional favorites sitting alongside food trucks and local restaurants, it’s a great day for the whole family. 

Vegas Uncork’d (April-May)

Now we come to the biggest culinary event of the year in Las Vegas. That’s right, it’s Vegas Uncork’d, landing late April/early May. 

 

Lasting four days and with a star-studded culinary lineup featuring the likes of Gordon Ramsay, Guy Savoy, and Giada de Laurentiis, visitors will fall in love with the food through a number of tastings, dinners, and brunches. 

 

The Grand Tasting at the Garden of the Gods pool at Caesars Palace is the highlight of the event, and it’s worth planning your trip to align with these unmissable dates if you’re a true foodie. 

EDC Las Vegas (May)

One of the biggest musical festivals in the world lands in Vegas mid-May, with the world-famous EDC Las Vegas

 

The Electric Daisy Carnival comes jam-packed, with DJs performing from dusk to dawn across eight different stages. The incredible KineticFIELD acts as the main stage and will see the likes of the biggest and best artists of the moment whilst the festival grounds offer fantastic carnival rides and parades in an out-of-this-world neon spectacle. 

Affordability 

The spring months are some of the most affordable in which to visit Las Vegas, with the high season not quite in full swing. And the more you save on accommodation, the fatter your wallet so you can spend on gaming, shows, beers and events.

 

Hotel prices in the city can become borderline ridiculous toward summer due to a plethora of coinciding events, scorching temperatures and the freedom for parents to take their children away for the school holidays, so it pays to look for a quieter time of year. 

 

Adrian Sireca, of OnlineCasinoGems, shares his 2 cents on the hotel prices, stating: “Toward the busier months, it’s the hotels that become the bigger expenses of the trip. By visiting just a couple of months earlier, visitors can save hundreds of dollars whilst having the same experience. You’d have to be crazy to wait till the prices are high.”

 

There are plenty of deals to be had; all you’ve got to do is search for them!

Conclusion

So there you have it, our argument as to why we love the earlier months of the year in Las Vegas. 

 

With a quieter city in the spring months leading to a better deal on accommodation, plenty of great events and the most comfortable weather of the year, we really do feel spring is the best season to visit Las Vegas.
