15-ounce Bags of Jalapeno and Teriyaki Beef Sticks Spice Things Up for At-Home Snackers

In a market sphere where shrinking product size is the norm, Old Trapper is focusing on expanding its product offerings to further meet consumers’ desire for high quality product in large clear-view packages.

The company recently launched two new flavors of its 15-ounce bags of Deli-Style Beef Sticks. Jalapeno and Teriyaki seasoned are the latest options to come in the shareable bags. And because they are low in carbohydrates and sugars at only 2 grams of total carbohydrates with 9 grams of protein per serving, they represent a keto-friendly snack.

A December 2018 “Forbes” feature predicted, “You can expect to see more keto-friendly snack options and meals.” For those not in the know, “a keto diet focuses on low carbohydrate … foods.” Flash forward a year and the low-carb trend is showing no signs of letting up. In August 2019, MarketWatch reported, “Ketogenic Diet Market Size will grow at 5.5% CAGR to exceed 15,640.6 million USD by 2027.” That figure equates to more than $15.5 billion.

Old Trapper continues to cater to this growing keto market with its line of authentic meat snacks. To ensure its customers always have a tasty snack option, the company is constantly expanding its product offerings. The new Jalapeno and Teriyaki 15-ounce Deli-Style Beef Sticks are the newest taste temptations to accommodate Old Trapper’s hungriest fans.

New 15-Ounce Flavors of Deli-Style Beef Sticks

The new Teriyaki flavor combines the delicious spice of Old Trapper’s famous smoked beef with the tangy flavor of soy sauce. The result is arguably the world’s best tasting teriyaki beef stick. The Jalapeno Deli-Style Beef Sticks start with the same wood-fire smoked beef with the added bonus of jalapeno spiciness.

“The popularity of our Original flavor 15-ounce bags told us that our customers are looking for large quantities of quality beef sticks for a good price,” explains Robert Leary,Old Trapper’s Director of Marketing. “Our latest Jalapeno and Teriyaki versions of the shareable bags deliver more of what our market base is craving – we know this because of how fast they sell out at retailers. And because we are so proud of the appealing mahogany color, all our 15-ounce Deli-Style Beef Sticks are clear bagged so consumers can see the exact quantity and quality they are receiving.”

Each 15-ounce bag of Old Trapper Deli-Style Beef Sticks retails for around $14. Each serving of both new flavors contains only 2 grams of total carbohydrates with 9 grams of protein making them a keto-friendly snack.

Voke was a simple idea dreamed up by Kalen Caughey over a decade ago on a chairlift at his local ski hill in southwest Montana. As a competitive skier, he was looking for a healthy, convenient, and ultra-portable energy solution to fuel long days in the mountains and at school.

Kalen teamed up with his dad, a PhD in biochemistry, to research an ideal combination of natural ingredients that would provide a balanced, sustained energy boost without sugar, artificial sweeteners or excessive doses of vitamins. Together they combed through thousands of pages of scientific literature in search of ingredients that were proven to improve memory, focus, metabolism and physical stamina. The resulting ‘Voke Blend’ that they developed was an exacting combination of organic Guarana Berry Seed, organic Acerola Cherry, Red Beet and natural Green Tea Leaf Caffeine that delivers a consistent and reliable vitalizing lift in focus and energy. With the formula developed, Kalen brought in his brother, Evan, to help with creative development and operations. Kalen and Evan continue to run Voke together as a family business.

Over the years, Voke has spread via word of mouth to people around the US and across the world. Voke has fueled expeditions on all seven continents, including many climbs in the Himalaya and a global sailboat navigation. As word continues to spread, Voke Tabs are seeing rapid adoption beyond the original core group of adventurers to an incredibly diverse group of health-minded professionals. Tech engineers, truck drivers, pilots, doctors, fire fighters, commercial fisherman, artists, executives, yoga instructors, photographers, soldiers and night shift workers are a few of the new groups discovering the many benefits of Voke Tab.

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.

About SwedencareUSA, Inc.

Founded in 2005, SwedencareUSA is the U.S. and Canadian distributor of ProDen PlaqueOff®, an oral healthcare product developed in Sweden. Following trials, PlaqueOff® has become the premier dental product for participants’ pets. The company’s business expansion has led to the inclusion of PlaqueOff Dental Care Bones, which incorporate PlaqueOff’s incomparable plaque- and tartar-fighting ability into tasty treats. SwedencareUSA prides itself on the quality of its products and its friendly and fast service to customers. For more information on the company and its product, please visit





How to Make Your Pet Feel Secure and Safe During the Up’s and Down’s of Anxious Times

Times of transition and change can have a detrimental impact on an animal’s physical and emotional well-being if progressing stress is left unaddressed. But, thankfully, there are ways to settle and soothe stressed out dogs and cats and provide increased security during seasons of change (or, to continually protect and promote canine and feline well-being no matter what season you’re in).

Thanks to technology there are now a number of ways to track your pet’s behavior from anywhere / to determine if there are warning signs that your animal is experiencing stress and/or a health problem. Today’s animal behavior monitors can detect problems with sleep, excess barking, and itching and shaking. All of these being signs that something may be wrong with your pet. Most trackers can simply be worn on your pet’s collar and offer insightful data via a downloadable application.

Here are some ways to help soothe detected stress and anxiety in your pets.

By Certified Dog Trainer Mikkel Becker in collaboration
with Sure Petcare Technology Products

Security boosting scents:

Soothing scents can be incorporated into the animal’s environment to provide calming reassurance. Lavender and chamomile are better known scents for their ability to soothe animals when stressed. But, other scents have also shown potential to calm anxious dogs; including valerian, vanilla, coconut and ginger.

Calming Acoustics:

The acoustical environment has a direct impact upon an animal’s emotional state.Minimize the outside noise and offer calming acoustical elements in your home environment by adding in both white noise and calming acoustical options for your pet.

Certain sounds offer calming reassurance to animal hearers. Calming music options can include species specific music (set to the beat of the species’ resting heart rate), reggae, soft rock, and classical music.

The white noise in and of itself can lessen the surprise of sudden noises and help to dampen other noises that may seep into your pet’s environment and be cause for concern. Common white noise options include a quiet fan, a fountain, or a white noise machine. And, when used in combination with calming music or audiobooks, they can help to further minimize outside audio input and offer a calming element during any lulls in the audiobook or music.


Synthetic versions of dog and cat, species specific pheromones send signals of well-being to the canine or feline recipients. Spritzing and regularly refreshing pheromone sprays in areas where the dog or cat rests, or placing pheromone diffusers in rooms where the animal regularly resides, provides calming, noninvasive reassurance to the dog or cat.

Setup a Safe Space:

Just as you may have a special area where you go to getaway and relax (like your recliner, the porch swing, your bedroom or the bathtub), so too do dogs and cats benefit from having a designated space to go to when they want to retreat and relax. Animals also need their own space and time, especially if they’re overwhelmed by surrounding situations, like an overly rambunctious animal housemate or overly eager child.

Offering cats high spaces to get up and out of the way and seek a high vantage point from which to survey their surroundings and to escape when wanting to retreat and rest. And, the more cats, the more high spaces and resources should be offered throughout the home (more litter boxes, feeding areas, water bowls or pet fountains, additional toys and resting areas) to reduce need for competition and offer each pet their own sanctuary space.

Other happy hideaway locations for the pet to get away when needed may include a crate, a certain piece of furniture or a gated off area or room. Ideally, allow the animal free access in and out of the area when possible to allow for easy entry and exit and provide the important element of choice.

In a multi-pet home, use of feeders that are specific to each pet and ideally located in their safe space manages mealtime chaos and furthers positive familiarity and comfort associated with the animal’s happy hideaway retreat space.

Create a calming routine:

Consistency for what the dog or cat can expect out of their day by establishing given schedules and routines is key to calming the dog or cat. And, even during unstructured times, such as the COVID-19 crisis or during holiday or school breaks, keeping consistency in interactions and daily care is essential for the dog or cat’s wellbeing. Cats in particular are especially sensitive to shifts in daily routines and rely upon regularity in what to predict out of their day in order to better keep calm. So, even when lacking a normal schedule, incorporating a regular routine into each day offers calming reassurance about what the animal can generally expect.

Monitor progress:

Note that anytime a dog or cat has a concerning change in behavior, it’s important to address the change with ongoing oversight from your pet’s vet. The difference in behavior or seeming distress a dog or cat is experiencing may be related to their health, as underlying illness, pain and other imbalances manifest first as a change in behavior.

One way to keep tabs on your dog or cat’s normal behavior, and attending to any change that may indicate concern, is to have a general baseline for the activity and behavior of your dog or cat. Animal activity monitors are one such way to track your pet’s behavior and have a physical record you can refer back to, as well as use for comparison and reference by your pet’s vet.

For instance, activity trackers that monitor important indicators like ‘barking bouts’ and ‘shaking’, which both are indicators related to underlying anxiety, are important ways to monitor the level of stress the dog may be experiencing. Such information can be invaluable in pointing out a problem and providing a baseline to go from when addressing an issue to see what treatments are providing positive progress and helping the pet.

Consider what you’re communicating to your pet:

Lastly, remember that concern is contagious. And, by taking care of your own emotional well-being, you are by extension better able to provide calm reassurance to your dog or cat.

Just because our dogs and cats don’t fully comprehend what we say verbally about what we’re going through, it doesn’t mean they’re disconnected to what we’re feeling. Instead, it’s quite opposite. Many dogs and cats are so intimately connected and emotionally attuned to their humans, that they’re able to pickup on even subtle signs of stress or changes in behavior that fellow human family members may miss.

Dogs and cats understand the unspoken messages; perceiving emotional signals we likely aren’t even aware that we’re giving off. Indicators animals clue in on for emotional meaning include human facial expressions, body language, the pitch, tone and delivery of verbal messages, and chemical messaging and body odors produced by the human body when under stress.

Being aware of our own emotional state and engaging in well-being practices, like exercise, adequate rest, deep breathing and meditation, can help to keep our own bodies in a state of calm, and by extension, offer reassurance to our dogs and cats.
