Bow Wow Labs Launches World’s First Bully Stick Safety Device

Innovator in pet safety products, Bow Wow Labs, solves a problem pet owners have faced for years with the invention of the Bully Buddy. The simple yet effective device prevents pups from choking on the tail-end of a bully stick while easing the minds of worried dog owners. The Bully Buddy pairs with a convenient subscription bully stick program Bow Wow Labs has also rolled out this month and both are available online as the brand’s first offerings in pet safety.

Bully Buddy was created by dog lovers for dog lovers with a mission to keep pets safe, healthy and entertained. As a top-selling dog treat and longtime favorite of dogs and dog owners around the world, bully sticks are easy-to-digest, natural, stimulating and delicious. But as dogs chew the stick down, their risk of choking on the last bit increases. If that little nub gets swallowed whole, a dog can choke or develop an intestinal blockage – both of which are serious medical emergencies. Bully Buddy is designed to grip the end of a bully stick with a secure clamp that, once locked in, won’t allow the small end piece to be swallowed, protecting pets from the risk of choking.

Bow Wow Labs helps customers treat their pets and protect them at the same time. The Easyship subscription program offers hand-selected, premium bully sticks perfectly selected for dogs based on their size and weight. Sourced from grass-fed, free-range cattle, they are available as part of a monthly subscription program to supplement Bully Buddies and are delivered to customers’ doorsteps every 30 days. Bow Wow Labs works to ensure that each custom bully stick is crafted to fit the Bully Buddy and recommends using the products together to support proper function. With this unique program, Bow Wow Labs looks to captivate the pet industry and in doing so, supply dogs across the country with healthy, safe and high-quality treats.

“We really believe in what we are doing and after our amazing Kickstarter campaign, we found that a lot of other people do too,” said Michael London, CEO of Bow Wow Labs. “We created the bully stick program to provide dogs with the highest quality bully sticks possible in the easiest way. We hand select each treat to pair with our Bully Buddies to curate the finest bully sticks with the safest experience for dogs and their owners!”

The Bully Buddy comes with a playful design to encourage engagement, a pet-proof adjustable clamp and collar, durable rubber that’s hard enough to protect but soft enough for dog teeth and gums, and it’s dishwasher safe! The simple-to-use safety apparatus was one of the most successful pet industry campaigns on Kickstarter of all time, and it continues to draw rave reviews from dog owners and experts alike.

“Every year we see dogs that have attempted to ingest the small portion of a bully stick and this can become an emergency procedure,” said Dr. Jerry Moore, DVM. “The Bully Buddy is the best product I’ve seen to prevent bully sticks from becoming a choking hazard.”

Bow Wow Labs launches this week with its custom fitted bully stick program and the Bully Buddy 1 for dogs 10-25 lbs. Both are available to purchase online nationwide at bowowlabs.com. Pre-orders for other sizes of Bully Buddy are also available for dogs under 10 pounds and various sizes of dogs between 25 and 85 pounds which the company anticipates beginning to deliver in the 1st Qtr. of 2019.

Cami’s Favorite Things: Christmas Edition

It’s finally Christmas time here in Las Vegas! Cami is officially 1 and 1/2 years old! Time has really flown by and I can’t believe she is a real grown up dog now. She is not a puppy anymore and definitely not the youngest at the park. Cami really LOVES to play with other dogs. I make sure I let her experience a range of toys and treats so she can learn what she likes and doesn’t like. So here is her list of Cami’s favorite things!

SWEDENCARE PRODEN PLAQUEOFF SYSTEM DENTAL BONES (VEGGIE)

The vegan dog treats are made of sea kelp! They are easy to break in 1/2 and Cami loved these! It took her at least 3 mins to give this treat a good chew before it disappears. Our good friends at Swedencare sent these for us to try and we give it two thumbs up!

ProDen PlaqueOff® Dental Bones are dog chews with the PlaqueOff System®which help clean plaque and tartar by abrasive action. Used daily, this natural product made with sea kelp can complement ordinary dental hygiene. Available in four tasty flavors. Choose between Turkey & Cranberry Flavor, Chicken and Pumpkin Flavor, Bacon Flavor and Vegetable Fusion Flavor.

  • Part of your daily oral care maintenance. Cleans plaque, tarter and
    freshens breath through abrasive action.
  • Grain Free – Gluten Free – Soy Free – made with natural ingredients
    – made in the USA.

Blue Dog Bakery Pumpkin Cookies

As you know, pumpkin is a great source of fiber and nutrition for dogs and humans. Pumpkin seeds are great for dogs too! I know that Cami loves pumpkin and she was excited to try these new cookie flavors. The best part is that shapes and the cookies are quite large! in size. I give these for her training or just as a mid day snack. Can’t wait to also try the new Gingerbread flavor too.

What makes Blue Dog Bakery treats unique:

  • All-natural, high quality ingredients that use human-grade ingredients!
  • Fresh baked and made in the USA
  • No animal by-products, no artificial flavors, no colors or preservatives

Feed Real Food: Freshpet is real, all natural pet food made from scratch

Just like us, our pets may suffer from Diabetes. Being obese or overweight can contribute to this condition, and since November is National Pet Diabetes Month, we want to offer information about this that you can share and publish. We also recommend fresh pet food for your pets!

  • It may surprise you to learn that dogs and cats can both suffer from Diabetes, also called diabetes mellitus. 1 out of 100 dogs has it by the age of 12 and between 1 in 50 or 1 in 500 cats will also have this condition. In diabetic cats and dogs, their pancreatic cells produce little or no insulin, or there is an abnormal response to the insulin that is produced.

The effects upon your pets are life-changing. For dogs the most common diabetes-related issues include

  • Low blood sugar or hypoglycemia (that may be induced by incorrect insulin dosing)
  • Ketoacidosis (ketones and high acidity in body fluids)
  • Cataracts
  • Low blood sugar or hypoglycemia (that may be induced by transient remission or incorrect insulin dosing)
  • Chronic pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas)
  • Poor grooming and dry, lusterless coat
  • Recurrent infections
  • Ketoacidosis (ketones and high acidity in body fluids)
  • Peripheral Neuropathy (nerve dysfunction resulting in an abnormal stance)

To manage your pet’s Diabetes, you must visit your veterinarian. And, as part of the treatment, they will most likely recommend not only insulin therapy but also a program that includes what to feed your pet (wholesome, real foods such as found in Freshpet) as well as quantity and timing of each meal. Exercise will also be part of this program since many pets are overweight. With the correct wholesome food, exercise and management with your vet’s assistance, your pet can live a healthy life!

Freshpet: Freshpet is real, all natural pet food made from scratch with the freshest ingredients in their kitchen. Freshpet meals are crafted using real meat and veggies you can see. They never have any preservatives – that’s why you’ll find their products in the fridge in the pet food aisle.

Cami’s Favorite Things May Edition

May has been a great month for Cami. She turned 1 on June 2 so all of May she got a ton of toys and treats! Here are some of the best things she love this month.

Dog Toys from Hartz: Tug Toy  – I could not figure out why she was so obsessed then I realized this toy is bacon scented!  Our Dura Play® brand is made even more fun and interactive with the Tug of Fun® line extension of toys. The ball’s tough latex shell and foam filling make for a desirable chew, while the sturdy rope running through the toy offers enjoyable hours of tugging and tossing. The Double Ring toy consists of a ball at the center and two rope loops that are easy to grasp on both ends of the toy. Owner and pet will enjoy a challenging game of tug! The toy is bacon-scented, too.

 

She also loves the duck toy too! This toy is so cute and very durable. Made from ballistic nylon, they are durable and made for strong play and chew. The rope adds interactive play value between owner and pet – they even float!

Twigo Pet Tag: This Love TAG is sooo cute! She loves wearing this tag to day care 🙂

Kick Fetch – I loved this toy at Petco and it was $30+ but I found it on Amazon for half the price!
