Fun new people stuff!

Childhood friends and pet lovers David Neuwirth and Robert Eichner created Pet House brand candles knowing that a smell-good-house is one goal of all pet owners.  Pet candles are an incredibly popular home accessory and gift item for pet-owners and non-pet owners alike and they created a safe and healthy product we think you will love!

Pet House brand candles and air fresheners are pet safe (made with 100% natural soy wax and no dyes, scented with essential oils) and the candles are pretty enough to display on your dining room table. 

End of the Leash carries stocks 7 varieties of Pet House candles, 4 varieties of room sprays, and 4 different car fresheners. Made in the USA!

Is Your Pet Ready For the 4th?


july4th_hiding.jpg

Did you know that July 5th is the busiest day of the year for animal shelters?  Fireworks noise, smoky smells, parties, the chaos of many people in your home, barbeque food and drinks, summer games and activities--all the unfamiliarity may strike fear into many pets, causing anxiety, disorientation, and at worst, escape from your home to find safety and quiet.  These can easily be prevented by following some simple guidelines to ensure your pet's safety and well-being.  

Dr. Karen Becker of Mercola Healthy Pets has an excellent list of 10 guidelines to help ensure your pet is comfortable and safe during the holiday.  

Top 10 July 4th Dos and Don'ts for Pet Owners (click link for entire article)

  1. DO ID your pet. In the event your pet is lost during all the confusion and commotion of holiday get-togethers, make sure he or she can be identified with an up-to-date ID collar or tag, permanent tattoo, or microchip. Even if you feel there's no way in the world your dog or cat can escape, it's better to expect the worst and hope for the best.
  2. DON'T apply human sunscreen or insect repellent to your pet. Make sure to use products designed specifically for your dog or cat, or that are vet-approved, all-natural human sunscreens. If your pet happens to ingest a sunscreen product, it can cause excessive thirst, drooling, vomiting, diarrhea, and lethargy. Insect repellents containing DEET can cause neurological problems in pets.
  3. DO keep party and barbeque foods out of reach of your pet. Feed your dog or cat his regular diet for the holiday, and be especially careful to secure potentially toxic people foods like chocolate, coffee, onions, grapes, raisins and bread dough. Consuming the contents of the grill grease trap is a common cause of summertime pancreatitis in dogs, so make sure to keep Fido away from the grill, in general.
  4. DON'T give your pet access to glow jewelry. If eaten, it can cause excessive drooling, GI irritation, and potentially, intestinal blockage.
  5. DO keep alcoholic drinks out of reach of your pet, and insist your guests do the same. Beer, wine and liquor can poison your dog or cat. Depending on how much is ingested, your pet can become very intoxicated, weak, depressed, and can even slip into a coma. Severe alcohol poisoning can result in death from respiratory failure.
  6. DON'T force your pet into a costume for July 4th. Unless your dog (or even less likely, your cat) loves to play dress-up, don't push the issue. Make sure anything you dress your pet in is comfortably loose and doesn't constrict movement in any way. Also remember, it's July and your pet can easily get overheated.
  7. DO keep citronella candles, oils, and insect coils out of reach of your pet. Ingestion can cause stomach irritation and potentially, central nervous system symptoms. Inhaling the oil can cause breathing difficulties and aspiration pneumonia in pets.
  8. DON'T take your dog or cat around backyard or neighborhood fireworks displays. And make sure to store personal fireworks where your pet can't get them. Pets have been known to swallow unexploded firecrackers, and it's also important to remember that an animal's fur coat is highly flammable.
  9. DO keep matches and lighter fluid out of reach. Some matches contain chlorate, which can damage blood cells, impair respiration, and cause kidney disease. Lighter fluid can irritate your pet's skin, and if ingested can cause GI upset and central nervous system depression. Inhaling lighter fluid can result in breathing difficulties and aspiration pneumonia.
  10. DON'T allow your pet outside, especially after dark. If she'll be within range of the sights and sounds of fireworks, try to secure her in a room without windows. Create a safe haven with bedding, a toy or two, and a few treats. Turn on a TV, radio or other music to help muffle the noise from outside. Leave someone at home with your pet if possible, but whatever you do, don't leave her outside alone. If she becomes frightened, even a fenced yard may not keep her safe. Dogs have been injured while making panicked attempts to escape their yard, and those that succeed can run away, be hit by a car, or stolen by a stranger.

Amanita--Death Caps--are they in your yard??

Excerpt from an article by Dr. Karen Becker:

Not too long ago, I happened upon a heartbreaking headline from an online news source. It read, "A warning to pet owners: Two dogs found dead after eating poisonous mushrooms from owner's yard."

Below the headline were pictures of the dogs, a gorgeous 3-year-old Saint Bernard named Drago, and Adoni, a handsome 8-year-old Lab mix. When the dogs' owner returned to her home in Wake County, North Carolina on a Sunday in March, she found them dead. Four other dogs in the home were stumbling around and vomiting.

A veterinarian found traces of Amatoxin, a poisonous substance found in certain mushrooms, in the dogs' blood. Apparently they had ingested Amanita mushrooms, also called Death Caps or Death Angels, which are the most lethal mushrooms in North America. When ingested, they cause liver failure. Currently, no antidote exists.

The dogs' owner didn't realize the mushrooms were growing in her yard, under mulch, and hopes telling her tragic story will help educate other pet parents.

 

Please read over the entire article to determine if any of these wild mushrooms are taking up residence in your yard.  They all pose a serious risk (even death) to your pet's health if ingested. The Amanita Phalloides and Inocybe seem to be the most attractive to dogs because of their fishy odor.

Safety First in Hot Weather


Mother Nature seems to have sidetracked Spring this year in the Midwest--it started quite late, and now we are already having hot Summer temps!  So this means putting our safety caps on and being careful not to overdo long walks and outdoor play, and being strategic when we do go out.

We've created a consolidated list for basic Summer safety tips, and provided a few links for even more details.

Enjoy the outdoors and stay safe, too!

Practice basic Summer safety:

  1. Never leave your pets in a parked car
  2. Watch the humidity
  3. Limit exercise on hot days
  4. How hot is the road? HOT ASPHALT AWARENESS!
  5. Don't rely on a fan
  6. Provide ample shade and water
  7. Cool your pet inside and out (with frozen treats)
  8. Watch for signs of heat stroke
  9. Be properly prepared for power outages (so everyone stays cool!)

What To Do When a Pet Goes Missing


Spring fever has sprung...has your pet gone missing?

  1. Contact local animal shelters and animal control agencies
  2. Search the neighborhood

Jack is a Catahoula Leopard Dog Mix. He is 1 year old and energetic!  If you are looking for an interactive alarm system that you feed, you should stop in to meet Jack today. His previous owner mentioned he is house trained, and once he trusts you he will be a faithful companion.

From the Barky Bites website:

About Our Treats
We Do It For The Love Of Our Pets

Barky Bites Dog Treats is all about the freshest and best ingredients to be used in our dogs' treats. 

We are a small batch bakery/jerk smokehouse in Chicago, IL and our main mission is to make the best and healthiest treats for our pets.  All of our jerkies are human-grade (pet safe) using only mild pet-friendly seasonings.  We hand-select all of our ingredients which are never purchased in bulk or by the skid.  We hand slice every piece--no piece of our jerky is alike. 

Chef, Restaurateur, and KCBS BBQ Professional Judge and Winner Chris Vecchio is jumping into an all-new adventure at age 50 and started Barky Bites Dog Treats in 2017, inspired by his new puppy IZZY and the massive amounts of recalls (and deaths) in the pet industry.

"When Izzy came into my life, she had severe allergies. I then found out how dangerously poor the quality of pet treats and food are in the market, and knew I had to do something..."

So Chris launched BARKY BITES DOG TREATS using only the best ingredients and his award-winning techniques to make the best pet cookies and jerky you can buy for your furbaby.

Top 4 Easter Hazards for Your Pet


The excitement of the Easter holiday may include a few items that can be quite hazardous to our animal companions!

Keep in mind especially these 4 things:

Easterpets.jpg
  1. Chocolate. The darker it is, the more poisonous it is to our pets.
  2. Plastic Easter grass.  Keep this out of pets' reach to avoid gastrointestinal distress.
  3. Plants. Lilies especially are extremely toxic to cats. 
  4. Fertilizers/herbicides. Store locked away, and keep pets inside while applying.

These reminders are courtesy of the ASPCA (Top Four Easter Hazards for Pets).

 

Take advantage of March sales!

There are only a few days left in March, therefore just a few more days for all our awesome March specials! 

Several brands of foods are on sale, plus tons of treats to fill the Easter baskets!  You you can find the details in our monthly newsletter.

Transitioning Cats to a Healthier Diet


Last week, Dr. Karen Becker posted an interview with "Two Crazy Cat Ladies" Jae Kennedy and Adrienne Lefebvre.  Here are the highlights--but we loved watching this immensely helpful and entertaining video!  (Alternatively, check out the complete written article/transcript here.)

Story at-a-glance

One of the things Jae and Adrienne focus on is helping parents of cats 10 years and older take important steps to help their kitties stay healthy and happy through middle age and their golden years

They share their experience, tips and tricks on introducing new foods to cats (no matter their age), and transitioning kitties to an entirely different, healthier diet

The ladies also explain why it’s so important to stop free feeding your cat

Adrienne and Jae discuss the most important supplements for cats, especially older ones, and how to use a bit of trickery to get them to accept add-ins at mealtime

 

Ready for spring training?

Pets And Your Sleep


bedhogs.jpg

Whether you have one pet or several, nearly all of us could get a good laugh comparing our sleeping arrangements with them!  The warmth, security, and affection of our furry loved ones in our beds with us is usually a welcome and mutual feeling.

But occasionally (or frequently, for some) the bed-hogging, fur-flopping, and slurp-slurping wakes us up more than we'd prefer!  As we all know, poor sleep impacts our daily energy levels and possibly our long-term health.  So what's a loving pet owner to do?  

We found a great article at animalwellnessmagazine.com that gives a few easy suggestions on how to remedy the issue!  Check it out ---> Is Your Dog Impacting Your Sleep?

And if giving your pet a bed of her own is on your list, we have TONS of great options at End of the Leash. We are happy to help you pick out the perfect one for your pet and your budget!

New Food at Our Mukwonago Store--Taiga


We are now offering Taiga dry dog food by Horizon at our Mukwonago store!  Read all about it in this excerpt from their website:

Taiga ('ti·gah') is the world's largest contiguous evergreen forest stretching across North America, Northern Europe and Siberia. It has been a sanctuary for wildlife and continues to be today. This ancestral backdrop is the inspiration for Taiga pet food. A true respect for simple, grain free, highly digestible, meat based diets. 

As with all Horizon pet foods, the majority of ingredients are sourced locally from growers we know and trust. We start with animal protein in both a chicken (white meat) and pork (red meat) alternative.

We build our carbohydrates with a combination of legumes. Red lentils, peas, and garbanzo beans provide high dietary fiber yet low glycemic energy without the use of any processed grains.

The animal protein and carbohydrate foundation is rounded out with raw fruits and vegetables like apples, pineapple, blueberries, carrots, broccoli and bok choy.

We rebalance the ancestral attributes of meat, legumes, raw fruits and vegetables that are taken through a low temperature cooking process with vitamins and minerals, and a post cooking application of prebiotics, probiotics and natural enzymes to restore the best qualities of the raw ingredients impacted by modern cooking.

Lastly, Taiga comes in convenient 35 lb/15.9 kg bags only. This focus on large bags allows for us to produce the finished products most efficiently and therefore offer better value to you the consumer. That is the primary ambition of Taiga - the absolute best value in grain free with no sacrifice on quality. You simply can't do better in balancing quality and cost.

 

Be sure to stop by our Facebook page to see all of our weekly and monthly sales on foods and lots of other items!

 

Have a dog with separation anxiety?

Many of us have animal companions that suffer from anxiety for one reason or another.  Separation anxiety can be one of the most stressful situations for both pet and owner and sometimes it is hard to find solutions that are safe and effective.  

We love this article by our friends at animalwellnessmagazine.com about ways to resolve this type of anxiety.  With some extra patience, love, and persistence, your furry loved one can be on his way to feeling safe and happy!

Click here for the full article! ---> 6 Steps to Resolving Dog Anxiety
