Good Enough to Eat

Sweet Wyatt, a Rhodesian ridgeback, had started walking away from his food. He simply wasn’t interested, and being a large and active dog it was crucial that he get enough calories along with the proper nutrition. So Wyatt’s pets brought him into Dogma Pet Supply and Dog Wash™, where we were able to calculate the exact number of calories he needs daily, as well as analyzing what he might be missing from his diet.

One of the new foods we introduced to him, and which he absolutely loves, is from Great Life Performance Pet Products. At Great Life, they use freeze dried raw protein with balanced freeze dried organic raw greens, organic freeze dried fruits and vegetables, organic mixed baby sprouts (enzymes) and pre and probiotics. They then enclose the kibble in wild salmon oil. They utilize ingredients that encompass a full nutrient spectrum and the food is made in small batches where quality is tightly controlled. This food is truly good enough to eat. In a pinch (say a massive snow storm where you were housebound and ran out of food), you could add a little seasoning and eat it yourself – without sacrificing one ounce of goodness or nutrition. Why feed our dogs anything less nutritious than we would eat ourselves? Now that Wyatt is getting quality foods that meet all his needs, eating is once again a joy for him.

If your dog or cat hasn’t taken you shopping at Dogma Pet Supply and Dog Wash yet, tell them it is time they did.  The store is literally filled from top to bottom with toys and treats.  We were allowed to go on Wyatt’s most recent shopping trip (he was stopping in for a pedicure and shampoo) and he nearly exhausted himself showing us the huge variety of healthy foods, and endless supply and variety of hides and bones to chew.  There was something for every taste and budget, and Wyatt enjoyed pointing out all of his favorites.  He lingered over the wall of toys, some with squeakers, some with furry faces, all with appealing colors and textures and an emphasis on safe play.  Wyatt has his eye on a leather leash as the weather warms up, hoping to stroll the Boardwalk in Downtown Evergreen in style.  Before leaving he selected a bag of bacon, maple syrup and blueberry treats that meet all of his high standards for nutrition, as well as his heartfelt commitment to flavor.  As Wyatt checked out he told Craig that he thoroughly enjoyed his spa day and looked forward to his next visit.

Bringing it Home

Taking your pet to see their doctor can be a lot like getting a baby to take medicine.  If they decide they are going to be miserable, there is no convincing them otherwise.   Mountain Vet to Pet offers the perfect solution.  Dr. Lisa Warren actually comes to your house, equipped with an amazing tool kit that allows her to examine your dog or cat in the comfort of their own home.  They feel they are greeting a guest rather than visiting the evil person who gives them shots.  She connects with the pet and the family with genuine caring concern and by the end of your appointment you will find yourself breathing a sigh of relief.  When there is an emergency situation, Lisa is always available through email and answers her calls in a timely manner.  Wyatt, who is an especially charming mix of Rhodesian Ridgeback and Hungarian Vizsla, finds his visits with Dr. Warren “low stress and worth a good tail wagging”.  He loves when she comes to the house and how she calls him “gorgeous”.  There is no better place than home to address your pet’s health needs.  People doctors used to make house calls.  They could take a lesson.

Go Team!

We love people who love dogs and if they’re famous people who love dogs, all the better.  Tim Tebow, back-up quarter back for the Denver Broncos, who many people think should be the starting quarter back, recently got himself a dog.  It’s a Rhodesian Ridgeback, caramel colored with black eyeliner and nose, and Tim named him Bronco, like there would reasonably be any other choice.  Ridgebacks are easily identifiable for the ridge of fur that runs in the opposite direction along their back, but beyond that they are beautiful, affectionate dogs with lots of energy and a sense of adventure.  Ridgebacks will look you right in the face and act like they know what you’re thinking and they can be very manipulative with their big, brown pleading eyes and expressive brow line.  They love to chew, so watch your socks, and they enjoy frequent play dates with other dogs.  Still, they don’t like to spend much time away from their people, so hopefully Tim has purchased box seats for Bronco at the games.  I think the VIP Lounge serves kibble on request.
