I was in very recently with my daughter to pick up some food for our local animal shelter.  My daughter was distressed at the low level of supplies the shelter had for the cats.  Joel and the lovely woman who also was there (I didn't get her name) sprung into action to try to help.  While she went through stock to donate, Joel got on the phone to his contacts to see if they could pitch in as well.  I've already gotten word back that they have.  What I want to point out is that I went in to BUY food and didn't even ask for the help that came unprompted.  My daughter and I left with our car loaded with high-quality food for the dogs and cats at the shelter and will return to pick up more.  We were incredibly moved by the kindness of the folks at Montclair Feed & Pet Supply.  It is always best to shop first in Montclair.

GREAT cause

and I'm looking for someone to assist me.

really know what to look for on an ingredient panel or ask for?

Grain Free foods are the latest .... but what you don't want in the first place is pet food without soy, corn or wheat. 

IF a pet food doesn't have all that crap and have meat proteins up high on the panel  so ????  In that case do you really need a grain free food? 

Even grain free foods have some sort of grain... like rice or oatmeal or potato.... to name a few.

Dry food vs Wet Food

DID YOU KNOW..... that several of the brands we sell have frequent buyer programs

1. Be Consistent With Puppy Training Tasks

2. Use Healthy Dog Treats As Rewards
When your puppy goes to the bathroom outside make sure to reward them by having a healthy dog treat ready. Classical conditioning is still the best way to train a dog. Your puppy will begin to associate the rewards with the action, thus having the reward become the number one driving factor.

3. Positive Reinforcement Is Always Best
When your puppy does something right make sure he knows it! Say "good boy" or "yes" in a positive tone, and use the same reinforcement cue each time, so they don't get confused. Positive reinforcement works ten times better than negative and in the long run, you and your pet will be much happier.

4. Help Your Older Dog, Too: Puppies Follow The Leader
Dogs often pick up good behaviors (and) bad from other dogs in the family. If you have an older dog in the house make sure to reinforce the same behaviors that you are teaching your puppy. If your senior dog is a pro at basic behaviors, this will be a great help as your older dog will also be teaching your puppy these good behaviors. Older dogs are very influential to puppies and many times a puppy will learn to mimic their behavior.

5. Train At Your Puppy's Pace
Never push your puppy to learn at a faster pace that they are comfortable. Being consistent with training is important but it is important to never push a puppy past their comfort zone. Most dogs love to learn and with the proper amount of positive reinforcement, they will gradually learn to behave exactly as you wish.

Training your new puppy requires patience, consistency, and persistence. If you follow these steps your puppy will be well trained in no time. Don't get discouraged if it takes longer than expected and if you are getting frustrated, never punish your dog, simply take a deep breathe and relax. Remember - all dogs are unique and can be trained given the right amount love, attention and teaching.

Your pets health starts w/ a healthy digestive system.  What goes into the stomach is broken down and absorbs the nutrients and eliminates wastes.  IT is the first line of defense against toxins entering the body.

An unhealthy digestive tract can cause waste to build up in the colon and lead to poor nutrient absorption.
It can also weaken the immune system and cause a range of health problems from digestive issues or something more serious.

What can you do ?

provide fresh water.  Regular exercise.  Feed foods w/ meat proteins and avoid soy, wheat & corn.

GETTING A DOG ? It's a commitment

The addition of a dog to your family can be a great way to get your kids more involved in the running of the household, give them a sense of responsibility and bring joy to everyone that lives in your home. When a dog is hastily chosen or introduced to the household on a whim, however, the situation can be a miserable one for all involved parties. Before you give in to your kids’ fevered pleas for their very own dog, there are some things you should carefully consider.
  1. A Pet is a Lifelong Commitment – Just like any other long-term commitment, the addition of a dog to your family is something that you need to fully understand before taking the plunge. When you bring your dog home, he will become a part of your family unit and should be treated as such. Relinquishing a dog because you made an uniformed or impulsive decision will be traumatic to him and can be very upsetting to kids that have become attached to him. It’s better to forgo the idea of a family dog altogether than to adopt one that you’ll later surrender.
  2. Your Puppy and Your Children Will Not “Grow Up Together” – There’s a prevailing misconception that puppies and babies are the ideal combination. In fact, most families find the exact opposite to be true. Just as a new baby needs constant supervision and attention, so will a brand new puppy. Hold off on the introduction of a puppy to your family until the youngest members are old enough to understand the importance of being gentle.
  3. Young Dogs Must Be Trained – Puppies are certainly adorable, but they’re just like small children in the sense that they need help learning good habits and behavior. Adult dogs that have already been suitably trained may be a better choice for families that can’t dedicate the required amount of time to the training of a young puppy.
  4. Kids Will Eventually Slack Off When it Comes to Pet Care – Any parent knows that a child in the throes of puppy fever will make any manner of promises in order to get the dog they’re dreaming of. In most cases, though, that commitment to pet care will cool as the novelty wears off. If you’re not willing, as a parent, to ensure that a dog is properly fed, walked and cared for, it’s not a good idea to add one to the family.
  5. Your House will Need to Be Puppy-Proofed – Puppies chew on anything they can find, and will inevitably destroy something you’re fond of if the house isn’t properly puppy-proofed. If you’re not willing to make the requisite adjustments in order to keep both your belongings and your new puppy safe, it’s best to reconsider the idea of adopting one.
  6. Your Lifestyle May Not Be Conducive to Dog Ownership – Families today tend to be on a tight schedule from the moment they wake up until they finally fall into bed at night. Most of the time, these strenuous family schedules simply aren’t conducive to dog ownership. A dog of any age, from puppy-hood throughout adulthood, will require a certain amount of play and affection. If you’re not able to provide him with such, a dog may not be the right choice for your household.
  7. Small Puppies Can Grow Into Large Dogs – The tiny puppy that captures your heart may, depending on his breed, grow into quite a large animal. If you’re living in a small space or not equipped to house a large animal, don’t allow yourself to be swayed by the diminutive stature of a puppy. Young dogs grow fairly quickly, and you may find yourself in an untenable situation if he’s too large for the space available.
  8. Dogs Aren’t Cheap – Responsible dog ownership means more than filling a food and water bowl each day. Dogs need routine check-ups, preventative veterinary care, medication when they’re sick and should be spayed or neutered. All of these things cost money, perhaps more than you might expect. A very tight budget and a new dog aren’t generally very compatible.
  9. You Don’t Have Much Patience – If you find yourself struggling to keep a grip on your temper on a regular basis or just don’t have patience to spare, a dog is not right for your family. Even well-trained adults will sometimes misbehave, and will often try the patience of those around them with their well-meaning antics.
  10. Temperament and Disposition – If you’re convinced that the addition of a dog will pose no problem and everyone in the family is ready, it’s time to start your search. That doesn’t mean, however, that the time for second thoughts has passed. Each dog you meet should be objectively evaluated, and you must ask questions to get an idea about his disposition and temperament. Some dogs aren’t well-suited to life with kids, while others can’t share a space with another animal. Know what you’re getting into before you make a commitment.
When faced with an adorable young puppy or the soulful eyes of an adult rescue dog at an animal shelter, even the most pragmatic parents’ judgment can be affected. Still, exercising enough restraint to remove yourself from the situation in order to thoroughly think it through is important to everyone involved.

Avocado –large amounts of avocado can be dangerous for dogs. Why? Avocados contain persin, that may be harmless for non-allergic people, but can be toxic to dogs.
Dairy products – Never ever feed them with products that contain milk. Dairy products cause diarrhea and food allergies. Foods sweetened with xylitol – Among these foods are candies, gums and so on. Xylitol, which is safe for us, can be a real risk for your pets. It can increase the insulin amount in your dog’s body and cause blood sugar drop. It can also badly affect the liver.
Chocolate – What makes every type of chocolate dangerous to dogs is theobromine. It can cause to serious digesting problems. Other risks include abnormal heart rhythm, muscle tremors and even pet death. Dark chocolate, chocolate mulch and unsweetened baking chocolate are the most risky types.
Onions and garlic – Both onions and garlic (in every possible form) can destroy your dog’s blood cells and lead to anemia. Symptoms include vomiting, breathlessness and indifference to food. (Can a healthy pet ever “ignore” food? Definitely no.)
Raw meat/fish/eggs – All these raw foods contain bacteria that can cause poisoning. Besides poisoning, raw eggs can cause skin problems too. Raw fish can cause “fish disease,” symptoms include fever, vomiting and lymph nodes. Trust me it can be fatal and can lead to pet death. If you want to feed your pet with fish, take care it’s completely cooked.
Consider the risks of these foods, and keep your healthy pet as far from them as possible – it’s a difficult but never an impossible task for an attentive and caring pet owner.

It includes pure breeds and mixed as well..

Yes, it seems disgusting....
A pup will eat poop for a number of reasons:
  • He thinks it smells and tastes good. (Dogs are notoriously poor arbiters of taste.)
  • He's hungry.
  • He may be missing key nutrients in his diet or suffer malabsorption.
  • He likes to keep his territory or bedding clean.
  • He has fun playing with it. (This is especially true for dogs that are mouthy.)
  • He's bored.
  • He knows that removing the evidence means no punishment for inappropriate elimination.
  • He knows that fewer predators will give him grief if there is no physical evidence of his having been around.
There may be other reasons for routine coprophagy, as the condition is known. It can be hard to figure out why a dog chooses to eat poop.

We do have products that may remedy this.

If the problem persists, ask your veterinarian about a remedy for this habit. What veterinarians do know is that it is normal behavior for a wide variety of species - even if humans are revolted by the very idea.

More Single Americans Opting to Own Pets, Study Discovers

Posted: March 22, 2013, 4:30 p.m. EDT

While families make up the majority of U.S. pet owners, the ownership gap between them and single adults has significantly narrowed over the last five years, the American Veterinary Medical Association reported.

The number of single adults with pets grew by 16.6 percent, from 46.9 percent to 54.7 percent, from 2006 to 2011, the AVMA stated. During the same period, families with pets grew by just 1.37 percent, from 65.5 percent to 66.4 percent.

The findings, reported March 14, were based on data contained in the AVMA's 2012 U.S. Pet Ownership & Demographics Sourcebook. The resource was released in December, but the Schaumburg, Ill.-based AVMA continues to report specific findings.

 AVMA Sourcebook
Considered one of the most authoritative sources on pet ownership, veterinary spending and pet demographics, the Sourcebook is regularly cited by the U.S. Census Bureau, according to the AVMA.
Other trends documented in the Sourcebook include:

• Pet ownership among divorced, widowed and separated adults grew by 17.7 percent, from 51.3 to 60.4 percent.

• The number of single men living alone with pets increased by 27.7 percent, from 34.3 to 43.8 percent.

• The number of single women living alone with pets increased by 22 percent, from 46.8 to 57.1 percent.

“It's interesting to see that more and more single people are discovering the comfort and satisfaction that owning a pet can offer,” said Dr. Douglas Aspros, DVM, president of the AVMA.

The study indicated that single pet owners are more likely to view pets as family members, while families more often relegate pets to companion or property status.

Dr. Aspros addressed the impressive growth of pet ownership among single men.
“For now, it's true that more single women own pets than single men, but this survey shows us that this may be changing,” he said. “By studying these demographic trends better, the AVMA wants to help veterinarians to better serve our clients and keep pets healthy.”
As for less-encouraging news: Veterinarian visitation showed signs of waning.

One in four pet-owning households did not visit a veterinarian in 2011, a nearly 7 percent increase over 2006.

“Veterinarians can use this information to reach out to these growing segments of our clientele to help reverse this trend of decreasing veterinary care for our pets,” Aspros stated.

“Families, no matter what size, need to bring their pets into a veterinarian at least once a year to maintain optimal health.”

A healthy, Happy Cat - Modern Cat Magazine

True Carnivores
Healthy meaty diet, happy cat
The first and most crucial ingredient in maintaining your cat’s well-being is, of course, her diet. To that end, you must give her the best food you can, in the correct quantities. Too much and she’ll suffer from obesity, a major problem with cats today. Too little, and she could develop malnutrition leading to illness or disease. The same goes for food quality; feed her a poor quality food and she will suffer, and fail to reach the age she could if fed properly.
Feed a high quality, meat-based food. Cats are true carnivores and as such, do not fare well with the substantial amounts of carbohydrates, which can, over time, contribute to the development of diabetes, kidney problems, or both. You may wish to consider feeding a balanced raw diet, available at many good pet stores today. If you decide to make your own, speak to your veterinarian first, to ensure you include all the essential ingredients. Taurine, for example, an amino acid vital to a cat’s health, cannot be made in the cat’s body, and must therefore be in her food. Though this important nutrient is present in meat, most owners who feed a raw diet add taurine supplements, as well as vitamin/mineral supplements, to ensure good health.
