Born Free Demo this Saturday

Stop in at our Mukwonago store between 10am-2pm on Saturday, March 25th to chat with a representative from Born Free! Here's a little about them from their website:

Born Free is a dog food born out of a passion and allegiance to man’s best friend.

As a 4th generation, family-run, distributor of canine and feline nutrition products, we believe that the simplest nutrition is the best. In 2010 we saw a need for a product that respected the way dogs were born to eat, with a focus on high-quality protein. So we formed Born Free, a nature-inspired line of dog food that honors the birthright of every dog to clean air, fresh water, and good real food.

In addition to high-quality protein we select vegetables specifically for their nutritional value. And Born Free is always free of grains, gluten, and unnecessary fillers.

We believe in building a legacy, for our dogs, and our sons and daughters — for generations to come. Producing the highest quality food always has been, and always will be, our #1 value at Born Free. We’ve partnered with the best, family-owned pet food manufacturer in America, and we take a hands-on approach to ingredient selection, production and testing — to ensure that Born Free is the best for our pets and yours.

 

HAWS Pets of the Week

The lucky family that adopts one of the pets featured here on our blog will receive a coupon from HAWS good for a “congratulations” gift bag from End of the Leash!

Hunter is a 4-year-old lab mix! He is in need of a diet so he can get his body back into swimsuit shape for the summer.  His new family will have to make sure they don’t leave good stuff on the counter--he will help himself to anything he can find.  Since he is such a large boy, a home with small children would not be the best fit. He does get along with other dogs and cats as well.

Clay is a 5-year-old pit mix who is as sweet as can be! He has been with HAWS since November--our longest-term dog resident.  The shelter was a very scary place for him so luckily there was a wonderful family who has been fostering since shortly after he came to us.  He is a great boy that is good with cats and other dogs.  If you are interested in meeting him, call the shelter and we will set up a meet and greet.

Ms. Wisconsin is a beautiful New Zealand rabbit that made the journey to HAWS from Alabama in hopes of finding her forever home. She is a sweet southern girl. She is pure with pretty ruby eyes! She is very friendly and enjoys attention. She is a social butterfly and loves hanging with all humans and enjoy loving pets!  She even seems to enjoy the attention of children and would do well with them (supervised interactions, of course). She will make a wonderful life-long companion that will bring much happiness into your home.

Eva is a 9-month-old pit bull/boxer mix. She is a very smart girl who knows many commands. Eva can be a little timid in new situations so she needs a family that is willing to take it slow with her. However, once she is comfortable she will show you all of the energy she has! We see lots of walk and training classes in her future to keep her mind stimulated. So far she has been great with cats and dogs she has met here at the shelter; we feel she would be okay in a home with either.

Torque is approximately a year and a half old and came to HAWS as a stray. He is a bit shy, but once you allow him time and space to warm up to you he will gently sit on your lap. After some lap time he may be comfortable enough to play ball with you. Roll it to him and he will bat it back your way! He would love to find his forever home today!

Bessie is a 3-year-old Bassett hound/lab mix. She came up from Alabama and had 7 puppies here. She wouldn’t mind a home with a cat, but she does not get along with all dogs.  We don’t know what her previous history is and she can tend to be afraid of new people and handling; because of this we would not recommend her for homes with young children.  She is a sweet loving, silly lady looking for love now that her puppies have been adopted.

A little about Fromm from their website:
Fromm Family Foods is a fifth-generation family-owned and operated artisan pet food company based in Wisconsin. Since 1904, our family has maintained a tradition of quiet innovation dedicated to the health and nutrition of animals. In the 1930s, we developed the first canine distemper vaccine. By 1949, we had introduced the concept of premium pet food to the world by pioneering the process of cooking meat and grain together to create the dry kibble food that is so popular today.

Sassy is a 4-year-old Beagle mix who came to HAWS from Alabama. At this time she seems unsure of herself and her surroundings, so if her new home has children, they should be older. She is also selective with dogs and may be good with some cats. Her family may find after working with her there could be a true Southern belle hidden inside!

Why Supplement with Enzymes?

Excerpt from "Enzymes and Your Dog" from dogsnaturallymagazine.com:

This is what happens when dogs eat processed pet foods.

Cooking at temperatures above 118°F destroys the naturally occurring enzymes in food. This means your dog’s body has to produce all of the enzymes necessary to digest the food and sooner or later, this limited supply will be used up.

If the body is constantly producing enzymes for digestion, it can’t produce the enzymes needed for maintaining healthy tissue and cleaning up toxins in the body. This places strain on the pancreas as it must be constantly producing digestive enzymes instead of its normal work as part of the immune system.

This strain leads to ill health, chronic disease such as diabetes, arthritis and allergies, and a shortened lifespan.

To read more about what digestive enzymes are, how they function in the diet, and why they are so important for good health, click here for the full article.

End of the Leash carries a variety of digestive enzymes for dogs and cats! Click the photos above to learn more.

We just received a new shipment of Ultra Paws boots--our best selling all-around dog boot!

The Durable sole is pliable, super grippy, and ideal to prevent slipping on floors and light duty outdoors--plus they stay on your dog's paws. 

Taffy, one of our store dogs, had some high-stepping fun testing out a pair!!

And to keep everyone safe from slick winter outdoor surfaces as well as protect your pets' paws from harsh chemicals, we carry Pestell Paw Thaw.  

We love it because:

  • It's environmentally friendly--less harmful to grass, trees and other vegetation
  • It will not damage carpets, flooring, or footwear
  • It's non-corrosive and forms a protective coating on concrete
  • Best of all--safe for your pets' paws!

Betsy is 2 year old Pit mix. In August she came to WI from Alabama along with her 8 puppies! All of the puppies have found their forever homes--now its her turn! She has bundles of energy and is really playful. Her perfect home would be with someone who is active and would be able to wear her out! She wouldn't mind having another dog friend, but no cats--they aren’t her thing.

Food Allergy or Intolerance?

 

Dr. Karen Becker of pets.mercola.com posted an excellent article a few days ago entitled, "Does Your Pet Have Allergies or Is It Something Else?"  

Many times it is actually the specific protein we are feeding our pet that is the culprit.  In addition, a true "allergy" isn't the cause, but instead an intolerance (sensitivity) to a particular protein.

Dr. Becker lays out the basics on understanding allergy vs. intolerance, and then gives instructions on how to figure out what protein may be causing reactions in your pet.

BJ and Racoona are a wonderful bonded pair of young cats! They are mother and daughter. Racoona is the more outgoing of the two, but as soon as BJ (the black & white kitty) sees her getting attention she runs right over to get her share of petting, too. They are both playful and love wand toys and chasing each other!

Make Meal Time Fun for Fido!

We have two cool NEW products that we love for meal time!  Both are by PAW5 and turn feeding into an enrichment experience!  Read and watch on for more all the details...

From PAW5:
An entirely unique experience, Wooly engages dogs’ powerful sense of smell as they snuffle, snort, and sniff their way through dinner or treat time. Built to stimulate a dog’s natural foraging instincts by mimicking the hunt for food in grass and fields, Wooly feeds both their belly and their brain. This means you are giving your dog a fuller, more active and more rewarding day, every day! Well done, you! 

 

From PAW5:
The PAW5 Rock 'N Bowl is a great way to turn meal time into an enriching and rewarding challenge for your dog! What looks like a standard bowl is actually a unique puzzle feeder that will have your dog thinking, problem solving and having fun all at once. By adding environmental enrichment to mealtime, you turn a routine part of the day into a fun brainteaser. With our Simply Challenging design, just pour food directly into the top (as easy as a normal bowl), the food runs through a hidden compartment, and your dog has to paw, nudge, and play her way through mealtime (that’s the challenging part!).

 

Another SALE!!  Through December 31st

In addition to our HOT sale on KOHA canned food and Pure Ayre odor eliminator (see last week's blog for details!), we are also marking down select bags of Fromm!

Now through December 31st, while supplies last:

Ms. Wisconsin is a 7-month-old New Zealand bunny. She came to HAWS all the way from Alabama. Along with her came her babies who are currently in foster care. Ms. Wisconsin wasn't too fond of being a mom, as she is so young herself. She really would love a home where she can just relax and figure life out on her own.

Slink is a wonderful boy that was a stray before coming to HAWS. He is a real character--he will have you laughing all day long. He constantly seeks out human attention and seems to be lonely without another ferret friend to scamper about and play with.

What would a holiday be without being able to share some of our yummy food with our best furry friends?
Dr. Becker compiled a list of 15 foods that are safe to share with your dogs and kitties.  

15 Thanksgiving Foods and Snacks Safe to Share with Your Dog or Cat
(excerpted from healthypets.mercola.com.  Click the link for the entire article!)

Most of these foods will be more popular with dogs than cats, but they're safe for both. They should be served plain (no sugar, salt, or spices, butter, or other additives), in moderation, and in small portions.

As an added bonus, even conventionally grown broccoli is one of the cleanest (most pesticide-free) foods you can buy. Your pet may prefer broccoli steamed.

Beneficial gut bacteria provided by probiotics break down and eliminate heavy metals and other toxins from the body, and perform a number of other important functions.

  1. Apples. Apples contain powerful antioxidants and vitamin C. Serve apple slices to your pet, but never the core or seeds.
  2. Blueberries. Fresh or frozen, blueberries are loaded with phytochemicals, and their deep blue hue is the result of anthocyanidins, which are powerful antioxidants. Blueberries are also a good source of healthy fiber, manganese, and vitamins C and E. Introduce blueberries slowly to your pet – too much, too soon can cause a digestive upset.
  3. Carrots. Carrots are low in calories and high in fiber and vitamins. Many dogs enjoy snacking on a fresh crunchy carrot.
  4. Broccoli. Broccoli supports detoxification processes in your pet's body; contains healthy fiber to aid digestion; is rich in beneficial nutrients like potassium, calcium, protein, and vitamin C; has anti-inflammatory properties; supports eye health; helps repair skin damage; and supports heart health.
  5. Kale. This dark green cruciferous vegetable is loaded with vitamins (especially vitamins K, A, and C), iron, and antioxidants. It helps with liver detoxification and also has anti-inflammatory properties.
  6. Fermented vegetables. If you happen to be serving fermented veggiesas part of your Thanksgiving feast, definitely offer some to your pet. Fermented foods are potent detoxifiers and contain much higher levels of probiotics and vitamin K2 than supplements can provide.
  7. Raw pumpkin seeds. Pepitas, or raw pumpkin seeds, are a rich source of minerals, vitamin K, and phytosterols. They also contain L-tryptophan and are a good source of zinc, vitamin E, and B vitamins. Research suggests pumpkin seeds can prevent calcium oxalate kidney stones, reduce inflammation caused by arthritis, and support prostate health.
  8. Sweet potatoes. Sweet potatoes are rich in beta-carotene and antioxidants, and are also high in vitamins A and C. Sweet potatoes with purple flesh have potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that may lower the risk from heavy metals and oxygen radicals.
  9. Green beans. Fresh, locally grown green beans are a source of vitamins A, C, and K. They also provide calcium, copper, fiber, folic acid, iron, niacin, manganese, potassium, riboflavin, and thiamin, as well as beta-carotene.
  10. Spinach. This green leafy vegetable has anti-inflammatory properties and can help support heart health.
  11. Asparagus. Asparagus is an excellent source of vitamin K, A, B1, B2, C, and E, along with the folate, iron, copper, fiber, manganese, and potassium.
  12. Pumpkin. Pumpkin is a great source of fiber, vitamin A, and antioxidants. It can help alleviate both diarrhea and constipation. Make sure to feed your pet either fresh pumpkin or 100 percent canned pumpkin – not pumpkin pie filling.
  13. Yogurt. Plain organic yogurt is high in protein and calcium, and most pets love it.
  14. Cottage cheese. Like yogurt, plain organic cottage cheese is high in calcium and protein.
  15. Raw almonds, cashews, and Brazil nuts. These nuts, served in moderation and very small portions, are safe for dogs. Many nuts are not – especially tree nuts – so stick with these three to be on the safe side.

If you're in the mood to prepare some special homemade treats for your animal companion over the holidays, be sure to request my free e-book Homemade Treats for Healthy Pets, which contains nutritious, easy-to-prepare recipes for both cats and dogs.

Scarlet and Ruby are a beautiful pair of bonded bunnies. They are very friendly and love to hang out with their human friends. Having a pair of rabbits is a wonderful experience as they share everything and snuggle together, groom each other and even share the same piece of lettuce! They will make you smile every day!

Buzz is about a year old. He is a little on they shy side, he was one of the many cats that came to HAWS from a hoarding situation in October. His new family will have to be sure to go slow with him until he is able to feel comfortable with his people. He would be forever grateful to a home of his own.

Getting To Know Your Animals

 

End of the Leash has had an animal communicator available for appointments in-store for many years now!  We love to offer a variety of ways for you to improve the relationship between you and your animal companions, and an animal communicator is a fascinating and unique way to do this.  In many cases, it can be the missing piece to a behavioral or health issue that was otherwise difficult to pinpoint or understand.
