HoneyCure.jpg

New to Us: HoneyCure

From their website:

HoneyCure is a revolutionary new wound care product from EnBiologics, engineered from organic certified medical-grade honey and compounded with natural ingredients. Made from FDA-approved Manuka honey, HoneyCure is a triple-action product: antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and pest-repellent. Simply mix well, apply to the wounded area, and watch as your animal’s wound heals with less discomfort and fewer complications than ever before.

By treating with HoneyCure, your animal can experience state-of-the-art veterinary care. As opposed to traditional wound care treatment, where wounds are kept try to promote scabbing and avoid the risk of infection, HoneyCure utilizes the process of wet wound healing by providing a moist, antibacterial, osmotic environment. This keeps the wound hydrated and quickens the healing process, reducing the time for the wound to heal by as much as half.

Interested? Stop in at End of the Leash and chat with our staff about this amazing product. We sell the 1 and 2oz tubes, as well as the 2 and 4oz jars.

Why You Shouldn't Use Retractable Leashes


retractableleash.jpg

Here at End of the Leash, we want the best for you and your pets. We spend countless hours researching foods and pet care items, and the companies that make them, to bring you only the highest quality and safest products!

One thing we DO NOT have on our shelves are retractable leashes. While we understand how some may feel they are a convenient way to leash your dog, they are repeatedly proven not safe. Not only can they cause harm to your dog, but to you as well.

Whole Dog Journal has a nice little article summing up our thoughts on the use of retractable leashes. We encourage you to take a few moments and check it out.

Come get your Small Batch this Friday!

Our sale for Frozen Friday, August 30th, is Small Batch. All Small Batch is 20% off!

We love the Small Batch company for so many reasons…they source their meat from small family farms on the West Coast with animals that are raised humanely on pasture and without antibiotics or hormones. All of their produce is certified organic. And instead of synthetic added vitamins, they use herbs, greens, and kelp to supply nutrition for your pet.

What’s not to love!?

Your Cat's Microbiome and Disease Risk


IMG_6768.JPG

There’s a lot of information out there about how to feed your favorite feline family members. One thing you may not know that can guide you in the right direction regarding their food—your cat is an obligate carnivore. This means that many commercial pet food diets may not contain optimum nutrition for your kitty; typically this includes dry food or high-carbohydrate food.

When your cat consumes a biologically appropriate diet, her microbiome (gut flora) will be more balanced and diverse, which helps regulate the immune system, digestion, and many other bodily functions that are necessary for good health. When a high-carbohydrate diet is fed, the “bad bugs” of the microbiome may take over, potentially causing a host of discomfort and even leading to disease over time.

One disease we are familiar with—diabetes—is unfortunately becoming more common in cats. Recognizing your cat’s nutrition needs in this scenario is most important to helping her overcome diabetes (and other chronic diseases!) and thrive.

Curious to learn more? Check out this article by Dr. Karen Becker!

Is your cat hacking hairballs?

While hairballs in housecats are very common, you may be surprised to learn they aren't a normal part of a feline's digestive process. Your cat's digestive tract is built to handle a certain amount of fur — the fur she pulls off herself during grooming, as well as the hair attached to prey in the wild.

But indoor-only cats in particular develop hairballs due to hair length, shedding patterns (spring is often hairball season for cats whose coats thin out as the weather warms up), excessive grooming (of themselves or other cats in the household), deficiencies in the diet, digestive dysfunction or a combination of issues. —Dr. Karen Becker

Sad-depressed-orange-cat-lying-on-the-floor.jpg

Anyone who has an indoor kitty has inevitably stepped on the squishy surprise—the hairball! Dr. Becker wrote a nice little article with basic information to determine if your cat’s hairball hacking could require a vet visit, or if some easy-to-administer remedies are in order.

Tyr is an almost three year old Lab/Hound mix who has been at HAWS since March. This handsome dog is looking for a home with kids six and over because of his size and strength.

Does your kitty have asthma?

siamese.jpg

The symptoms of asthma in cats can easily be confused with other noises a cat may make, including the sound of throwing up a hairball. This and other symptoms can be aggravated by things such as dusty and/or scented kitty litter, household cleaners, air fresheners, smoke, pollen, mold/mildew, and even certain foods.

Dr. Karen Becker has written a fantastic article to help you wade through the signs, symptoms, treatments, and what you can do at home to help your kitty breathe easier!

He is extremely playful with plenty of energy; sometimes wearing out the older cats in our colony room. He would do well living with another cat around his age and possibly with a cat-savvy dog.

Mims is a one-year old male chinchilla. He is a rodent, who is most active at dusk and dawn ("crepuscular"). In the wild, chinchillas are found in the Andes mountains, an arid climate. When you keep them as pets this means it's important that they have plenty of space to move around and do not get overheated. Mims is no exception; he is active, curious and playful. His teeth will grow throughout his life so it's essential that he has ample things to chew on to wear them down. Chinchillas are soft and affectionate but are not generally cuddly, as some other pets can be. However, their antics will keep you entertained. Mighty Mister Mims is ready to put on a show for you. Visit him at HAWS today!

A Discussion on Dilated Cardiomyopathy and Grain-Free Diets


dilatedcardiomyopathy.jpg

Dr. Justin Shmalberg is a veterinarian at Small Animal Hospital at the University of Florida. His mission is an integrative approach to animal care—combining the latest technologies, natural approaches, and fundamental nutrition to prevent and treat disease in pets.

In his blog post, Dilated Cardiomyopathy and Grain-Free Diets: Thoughts on the FDA Update, Dr. Shmalberg discusses the current suggestion that certain types of pet foods may be causing fatal heart disease. He takes a multi-aspect approach to his own personal experiences and opinions as an integrative veterinarian.

In discussing what DCM (dilated cardiomyopathy) is, citing studies, and sharing how he advises his own pet parent clients, Dr. Shmalberg presents a fundamental starting conversation on a topic in which definitive answers are still up in the air. Be sure to read the comments section of his article for more excellent information.

In light of this, remember we will have a LOT of vendors at our big summer event—Customer Appreciation Day! (See details below!) Visit with them, take home some free samples, learn about their companies and maybe try something new while enjoying the big one day savings!

 

Getting closer…just 10 days until…

If you haven’t heard yet, our 5th Annual Customer Appreciation Day/Summer Fun Event is on July 20th from 10am-3pm!

You can’t miss it if you drive by our Mukwonago location …with the huge Pier Pups doc diving pool taking center stage, all the vendor tents, wading pool, live music, and more.

Gotta water dog?

You will love our new Wigzi Gel Leashes (one and two dogs), Collars and Harnesses. They are waterproof, stink-proof, and reflective! Choose from blue, green, pink and orange.

Check out the dual doggie leash:

If your leash, collar or harness gets dirty or wet simply hand wash with soap and water, wipe it clean and you're set. Each product has a highly reflective strip for maximum visibility. There's an additional d-ring on the leashes for waste bags included near the super-comfy gel handle.

(In fact, these products would be great to try out in our wading pool at the Summer Fun Event!!)

Spangle has spent more of his life then not living in a shelter. Prior to that, when he was very young, we think he lived outside with his mother and siblings. We are looking for a patient, nurturing home to show this guy what home living is like! Spangle is a five month old, Dalmatian mix puppy. He gets along well with other dogs of various sizes, but would prefer a home without cats. This handsome fella is loving and curious, although a bit on the shyer side. Because of his sensitive nature, his new family members would all need to be 13 and older. Are you ready to bring home Spangle, the Star of a Pup? Come to HAWS and meet him!

All about Vermont Dog Eats from their website:

We're Vermont Dog Eats and we make people-grade dog treats with locally-sourced and organic ingredients. Our all-natural dog treats are handmade, baked and bagged right here in Vermont.

It all began one day when we decided that rather than buying dog treats with ingredients we couldn't pronounce, we would buy locally-sourced, healthy & organic foods and make them ourselves. The rest, as they say, is history! We're happy to make a product that makes dogs happier and healthier, and we're happy that owners can give their furry friends food that is just...food.

We have a network of local farms and partners that offer us access to some of the finest food around and as a result our dog treats are made with entirely real, human-grade food and absolutely NO wheat, soy, corn, sugar, byproducts or preservatives. We believe that good dog eats are vital to the health of of our furry friends.

As proud parents of a rescue dog and a few foster pups ourselves, we can’t say enough about the work done by animal rescue groups. That's why every year we donate 2% of our profits to local animal rescue/welfare organizations. In short, we're happy to support the great community that supports Vermont Dog Eats and our furry friends.

Parasites and Indoor vs. Outdoor Cats


catgrass.jpg

Just yesterday Dr. Becker posted a very informative article on cats and parasites. Her bottom line is that your cat is most protected from parasites (and many other dangers) staying indoors, or having limited/supervised outdoor access. The article is based on a study done by Auburn University.

This is especially helpful information for expanding your pet care knowledge, as well as information to consider if you ever plan to add more cats to your family in the future!

Dr. Becker also lists several ways to help your “captive” cat thrive indoors!

Enrichment for Your Kitty


One thing we love about kitties is that they’re independent and (generally) low-maintenance, which is great for those of us who have work days away from home.

But to live their best lives, cats still need an enriching environment—one that includes activities and items that encourage them to do normal “cat stuff” like hunting, playing, and climbing. Cats also thrive on consistent schedules and human interaction to minimize stress.

Dr. Karen Becker of healthypets.mercola.com presents a fabulous article to help us understand our kitty’s needs and easy ways to fulfill them!

—-> Click here for the full article, Leaving Kitty Home Alone? How to Keep Cats Entertained

One thing Dr. Becker mentions is getting your kitties outdoors when the weather is nice—it’s good to get their feet on the bare Earth! But how does one do that unless your kitty is leash trained?? Here is one of our reader’s solutions to letting her indoor cats outside, keeping them safe from predators (eagles, hawks, and coyote!)—a CATIO (cat patio). They can be as small as a window or large enough for people! This one was purchased as a kit, and the shelves were replaced with long-lasting cedar. Logs for scratching and stepping stones (great for a warm catnap!) were also added. During warm months, catnip and other greens are added in pots. One resource she recommends is Catio Spaces if you’d like more ideas! Also, if you live near Austin, Texas (or even if you don’t), you might love David Murphy (aka the Cat Carpenter) and his catio creations!

Tiger is a HAWS staff, volunteer and visitor favorite. That means he has been waiting to be adopted far too long. This almost nine year-old, domestic shorthair, tabby cat came to us just shy of a year ago (June 4, 2018). So, Tiger's legion of fans is trying to get him adopted before he spends a full year looking for a new home. He came to HAWS when his previous owner needed to be hospitalized and he was a bit crabby. We realized Tiger has back pain and once it was addressed his outlook improved. He still wants things his way, but he's less of a curmudgeon about it these days. He even learned how to give "high fives"! Recently (due to construction in his private pad) Tiger moved into our small cat colony room. He has been doing well and now can go to a home with other felines who will give him his space. Please come and meet him and see if you can make OUR boy Tiger YOUR boy Tiger!

You might remember Jeremy as our spokes-mouse from a post this past January. Since then he has been patiently waiting for his new home.  

He is an adorable domestic mouse who would make an entertaining companion. He will impress you with his curiosity and fearlessness. HAWS volunteer, Russ created a jungle gym to keep him busy in his cage, and when "comes out to play" he explores a doll house. Male mice need to be kept individually so they do not fight. Jeremy is waiting to meet you!

Canna Care by Pet Releaf--50% off


CannaCare.jpg

Check out the newest CBD product by Pet Releaf—Canna Care! Buy it 50% off at End of the Leash through the month of May, 2019.

From Pet Releaf’s website:

We developed Canna Care Topical for Dogs because we believe in healing from the inside out.

Pet Releaf Canna Care Topical for Dogs is infused with our Certified USDA Organic CBD Hemp Oil. Our CBD Hemp Oil droppers and capsules, as well as our Edibites, have your customer’s companions covered on the inside, this product was developed to help take care of the outside.

What’s in Canna Care

Canna Care is 100% vegan and made with all plant-based ingredients. As with any Pet Releaf products, you can pronounce every ingredient with Canna Care and each ingredient was hand selected to amplify the health benefits of CBD and to heal and moisturize your dogs skin.

Some of the most important ingredients in Canna Care:

Andiroba Oil:

Andiroba oil is an anti-inflammatory oil. Due to it’s high omega-3 count it promotes skin healing and can slow the growth of skin cells. It’s also been found to help with pain (including arthritis) and swelling.

Eucalyptus Oil:

Eucalyptus oil is used in many products for a variety of reasons. In our Canna Care, we incorporate Ecucalyptus oil to help as a natural pain reliever. It also contains antimicrobial and antiseptic properties that make it extremely effective in treating skin cuts and wounds.

Ucuuba Butter:

Like, Andiroba oil, Ucuuba butter is extremely high in fatty acids. These fatty acids make it an exceptional moisturizer and efficient in replenishing skin.

Pet Releaf Canna Care Aids In:

  • Dry Skin

  • Inflammation

  • Arthritis Relief

  • Insect Bites

  • Skin Irritations

We have also heard cases where Canna Care has helped with Mange, MSRA, and chronic rashes.

What makes Canna Care different from other CBD topicals?

Our CBD Hemp Oils are extracted from our own proprietary strain of hemp grown specifically for pets, PR-33. This strain is grown at the largest certified USDA organic hemp farm in the United States. Our joint-partnership with our farmers allows us to have complete control over our hemp plants, from seed to sale, from plant to pet we know exactly what’s going into the products you’re giving your pets.

We extract our CBD Hemp Oil using a chemical-free super critical CO2 method. This method ensures no critical cannabinoids are destroyed and you’re getting every benefit the hemp plant has to offer.

Beyond our hemp and extraction methods, every ingredient included in our Canna Care topical was hand-selected specifically with your pet’s health in mind. It is 100% vegan and plant-based with the highest possible quality ingredients sustainably-sourced.

Frequently Asked Questions About Canna Care:

Is it okay if my dog licks the Canna Care after it’s been applied?

Answer: Yes! Canna Care is a 100% plant-based and vegan product. There are no ingredients included that could harm a dog’s health if licked in small quantities.

I noticed this product is marketed just for dogs, is it okay if I put it on my cat?

Answer: No. Our Canna Care Topical contains a wintergreen oil that is potentially toxic for cats. Although included in very very small amounts, we do not recommend putting this product on cats.

Can the Canna Care be used instead of a Hemp Oil product?

Answer: Our Canna Care topical is great for skin-specific inflammation, however, it is much lower in potency than our oil tincture products. If your dog has severe inflammation that is also showing externally on the skin, we recommend utilizing the Canna Care in conjunction with the oil so that the inflammation is being dealt with both internally and externally.

Can I use Canna Care?

Answer: Yes! All Pet Releaf products are beyond human grade and every ingredient within our Canna Care topical is equally beneficial for human skin care!

This week's Pet of the Week is Groucho the cat. He is the sweetest guy and his little under-bite makes him even more endearing. He is so easy going that he'd be the kind of pet to just ease right in to anyone's life.  

Groucho's name must be ironic or a nod to the Marx brother because this cat is as sweet as they come. He is a 10 year old domestic shorthair who wants to love and be loved. His joys in life include wet cat food and attention from anyone willing. Groucho is a mellow fellow who currently lives in our small cat colony room. So, he would most likely do well in a home with other pets. This super friendly feline came to HAWS with his brother, Hi Ho Silver and sister, Cuddles. He and his brother are still waiting for homes and can go together (but are not required to be adopted as a pair). Is there room in your heart and home for some extra affection? Stop in to HAWS and let Groucho fill that space.

Good Stuff from Stella & Chewy's and Small Batch


Limited ingredient diets
from Stella & Chewy’s

S&CLimitedIng.png

Does your dog have food allergies or sensitivities?

S&C’s new Simply Stella’s Limited Ingredient Diets are kibble made with a single source of grass-fed and/or cage free animal protein and limited easily-digestible carbohydrates (no grains, potatoes, or pea protein!). No fillers or additives. No ingredients from China. No artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives!

All three formulas are enhanced with probiotics as well as omega fatty acids for healthy skin and coat. The kibble is oven-baked and coated with raw goodness!

Stop at one of our locations to learn more or grab a bag!

 
SmallBatchLightlyCooked.png

New from Small Batch—Lightly Cooked

Transitioning to raw? Want to add extra nutrition to your current kibble or canned? Or just not ready to go all raw yet? You and your pet will love Small Batch Lightly Cooked!

Small Batch took their raw formula and made them irresistible by cooking them sous vide (in their own juices) at 150 degrees for 5 minutes. This makes it easier to digest, wonderfully aromatic, and extremely palatable for those finicky eaters!

Lightly Cooked is also a GREAT choice to replace canned food as it contains NO thickeners, gums, carageenan or BPA.

Choose from beef, chicken, or turkey.

HAWS' small animal room is brimming with little critters looking for homes. Rabbits, ferrets, hamsters, birds, mice and rats are all waiting for their adopters to come. 

Gilbert is an adorable tan and white domestic rat. He is an adult, but smaller as rats go. He was surrendered to HAWS by a good Samaritan who rescued him when his original owner threatened to "set him free" outside. He is curious, gentle and likes to be handled. Rats are very intelligent and perceptive animals, and this sweetie is no exception. Would you like to see Gilbert the Great for yourself? He will be taking visitors during viewing hours. Please take the opportunity to meet (and possibly adopt) him.
