While Pets Suffer Separation Anxiety as Their Humans Return to Work, a New Pet Safety Product Helps Humans Resolve Their Own Anxieties

thePetmosphere.com, an online source for unique pet items, has launched a new petsafety product that brings to life ‘In Case of Emergency’ planning for pets, just in time to help pet parents anxiously returning to the workplace.

As people emerge from lockdown and return to work, many find their pets at home suffering from classic separation anxiety. While pets sulk as their humans return to work, pet parents also experience their own anxieties over pets left home alone.  The Pet Parent Alert Kit has been launched just in time to help them manage these anxieties.

When a pet parent leaves a pet at home to go to work (or run an errand, go to dinner, etc.), they assume their return will be timely. But what if it isn’t? What if suddenly they couldn’t return home due to an accident or emergency? Without a proper plan in place, pets that rely on them could be abruptly left without care.

While an emergency interrupting our daily routine seems improbable, vehicle accident statistics from Progressive Insurance seem to indicate otherwise:

  • 52 percent occur within 5 miles of a person’s home
  • 77 percent occur within 15 miles of a person’s home

A car accident that sends a pet parent to the hospital in an incapacitated state could result in pets at home going without care for an indefinite period of time.  Having an emergency plan in place ahead of an emergency, via The PetParent Alert Kit, alleviates concern for such a situation.

“As a veterinarian, I find that pet owners consider their beloved animals to be members of the family. Their critters are loyal and adored companions. Caring for our wonderful creatures is a top priority. But what happens to them if we are in an accident or have a health crisis that lands us in the hospital? The Pet Parent Alert Kit offers peace of mind to animal lovers by providing notification to medical staff, law enforcement or emergency response teams that your animal needs care. I highly recommend this simple-to-use kit that contains everything you need to make sure your fur babies get the vital care they need when you can’t be there.” – Hannah Smith, DVM (DACT candidate), Gainesville, FL

The kit is comprised of several components, including key ring tags and brightly colored wearables that alert first responders to the existence of pets at home, directing them to emergency contact information stored in the wallet.The ICE contact can be notified of the situation immediately and can take over a pet’s care quickly.  Pets never need to miss a next meal, vital medication or a reassuring hug from a human caretaker.

The kit also provides a ‘Please Rescue My Pets’ home window sticker for fire/flood emergencies.  It notifies firemen or other responders that pets are in the home and need to be found and rescued before leaving the site. This is especially important to have visible during hurricane season on the coast and fire season in the west.

Two versions of the kit are available and priced from $19.95 to $24.95, including shipping. More kit detail is available here: https://thepetmosphere.com/collections/frontpage/products/pet-parent-alert-kit-single

New Broad Spectrum Elixir CBD Oil Offers Relief to Pets and Owners Alike

CANBY, Ore., Aug. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Today LIX, the Oregon-based startup focused on improving pets’ lives with organically sourced cannabidiol, or CBD, formally announced a new line of broad spectrum, odorless and flavorless CBD tinctures for all pets. CBD is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in hemp.

“The Elixir” tincture is a sustainability harvested CBD oil complete with a signature cannabinoid profile. This is the first product under the LIX brand for founders Erin Hills and Kirstan Sanders. With a combined 25 years of experience in the pet wellness, food, pharmaceutical, cannabis, and technology worlds, Hills and Sanders combined their complementary skills – and their years nurturing animals in and out of rescue – to launch LIX in May 2020.

Animals can take the product straight from the dropper, resulting in immediate absorption to the system. Alternatively, pet owners can add the tincture to food. All LIX products are made with broad spectrum CBD oil and contain no THC. “The Elixir” is available in 250, 500, and 1,000 mg sizes with dosing and guidance on every package.

LIX pet wellness products are designed for animals, and are human grade, organic, flavorless, odorless and always free of pesticides and additives. CBD used in LIX products is organically sourced and sustainably harvested in Colorado, Washington, California, and Oregon.

Shipping is available domestically and internationally dependent on regulations. All foreign regulatory information is available at www.naturalpetlix.com and hello@naturalpetlix.com. LIX tinctures are ISO/GMP (International Standards Organization & Good Manufacturing Practices) certified.

According to Brightfield Group, the leading consumer insights and market intelligence firm for the CBD and cannabis industries, “48% of pet CBD buyers stop using prescriptions for their pets once they try CBD, indicating significant potential for this growing market. The industry grew 946% in 2019.”

“The Elixir has a signature cannabinoid profile that we created in order to improve the health and happiness of our own animals struggling with pain, anxiety, and mobility issues. We have always searched for the best quality holistic wellness solutions for our own pets or those in our rescue organization. My background in operations and sales combined with Kirstan’s background in sustainable, organic pet wellness products made us the perfect team. The more we learned about the efficacy of hemp-derived CBD for animals, it was a natural extension of our philosophy, business experience, and passion for animals to launch the company,” said Hills.

“Through running a pet rescue organization together and caring for our own animals, we have always been obsessed with overall pet happiness. Quality is critical to the mission of LIX and we’ll stay committed to pets, their people, and improving sustainability practices for our cherished Earth,” said Sanders.

“We brought this product into our pet store and it immediately became our best-selling CBD product. The milligrams are clearly labeled and the instructions make it very simple to dose your pet. Customers have been telling us it’s great because their pets truly can’t taste it so administering it is easy,” said Sadie K., store manager at The Healthy Pet, Lake Oswego, Oregon.

Each batch of product is tested at a third-party independent lab to ensure the highest quality and potency. All LIX products use the highest quality hemp CBD combined with natural and organic ingredients.

LIX products are available online at https://naturalpetlix.com, and in several independent pet stores in the Portland area. Due to increasing demand, in addition to the tinctures and a freshly launched topical salve, LIX has more ingestibles and topicals in pre-production. To find a LIX distributor near you, please visit https://naturalpetlix.com/pages/find-us. To inquire about becoming a LIX retailer, please contact wholesale@naturalpetlix.com.

ProDen PlaqueOff® Cat Powder from SwedencareUSA

Most cat parents know that dental care is one of the most important but overlooked health issues for our furry felines. This is largely due to the fact that it is nearly impossible to care for our kitty’s teeth at home.

Easily sprinkled on food, this powder is free from additives, artificial preservatives, gluten and sugar.

Since cats are known for having a more discerning palate, brewer’s yeast is added to the powder – an ingredient most cats find irresistible. Sprinkled over wet or dry food daily, this tasty formula can significantly complement cat’s ordinary dental hygiene by helping to clean plaque and tartar buildup.

Like all ProDen PlaqueOff® products, ProDen PlaqueOff® Powder Cat is made from the seaweed Ascophyllum nodosum . Since cats are known for having a more discerning palate, we have added brewer’s yeast to this product – an ingredient which most cats love. ProDen PlaqueOff® Powder Cat has proven to be irresistible to a panel of cat critics. Prior to the product launch, a palatability test was performed at Laboratories Le Centre de Sourches in France. The result: 100% acceptance.
