• Rules to Live by: Leash Etiquette in Public

      One of the most common challenges dog owners experience when they head out into public is other dog owners and dog lovers. This is challenging because dogs are not often granted the right to consent. It’s important for us all to remember that a dog being in public does not imply consent. Humans claim they can’t control themselves around dogs and simply “have to” pet…

    An ‘FDA Warning Letter’ is not just a ‘Warning’

    If you’re just catching up Midwestern Pet foods (manufacturer of Earthborn, ProPac, SportMix, CanineX, Venture, Unrefined and Wholesomes) rounded out 2020 with an expansive ‘voluntary’ recall secondary to aflatoxin contamination among a variety of their products. As 2021 began the ‘voluntary’ recall became larger – however, as retailers and consumers we were assured that this incident was isolated to one of their four US plants. If you are wondering why I put ‘voluntary’ in quotes, it’s because voluntary recalls are actually not voluntary – they are forced by the FDA (For more on that, see my other article ‘Voluntary Recalls Are Not Voluntary’ here). In short, when a company is subject to a voluntary recall it appears to imply that either the company did not have to recall the product, or that they may have found the issue themselves and thus recalled the product ‘out of an abundance of caution’, when in fact it is usually pretty far from the truth.

    Brandon & Hades’ Raw Testimony

    Hades was a VERY picky eater when he came home from the hospital and we struggled big time when it came to getting him to eat. Numerous bags of dry food went to waste because he seemed to have became bored with it, as well as wet food. We found it tough to gain back the weight he had lost when he got sick too. Luckily enough I had discovered Northpoint Pets & Company in the middle of this dilemma and a simple 10 minute conversation with the staff re-directed my mindstate from kibble to Raw. We gave raw a shot and I’ll tell you what, we’ll never switch back. Instantly, Hades was hooked. Not only was it a simple switch but the benefits showed immediately.

    7 Reasons Why You’ll LOVE Freeze-Dried Food

    Freeze-dried raw food is still raw and has not been cooked. Therefore, perhaps the best benefit of all is that it contains pristine nutrition for your pet: animal-based proteins, essential fats and amino acids in their most digestible, bioavailable form. At NPP we strongly believe that whole, fresh feeding is the best form of nutrition for your pet.

    Q & A with Nicci Cammack

    Caitlin: What is your favorite supplement and why?
    Anything fresh – I am an advocate for adding fresh food in every pet’s bowl (even in small amounts). In my experience, small additions of fresh fruit, veggies and lean meats can make a profound difference.
