Product Review - Epic Pet Health

Today we would like to tell you about a product we were given the opportunity to try.
We were contacted by Amy Swartz DC, owner of Epic Pet Health
to see if we would be interested in trying some of her natural health supplements.
 
Amy is a civil engineer and holistic chiropractor
She started making supplements to help her aging dog
and has developed a whole line of health supplements for pets

The supplements are made of diluted vitamins and minerals
 in water with electrolytes.  
They are odorless and tasteless
 Easy to use with spray and dropper tops
Chemical, dye, and preservative free
 and made of human grade ingredients

There are 25 different supplements to choose from

We heard about Epic Pet Health when
 our buddy OZ the Terrier,(of Limerick fame),
  did a review on some products from Epic Pet Health.
OZ was looking for something to help with his itchies.  
His mom was quite pleased with the results of using the
SKIN and REPAIR supplements provided to them by Amy.
You can click on OZ's name to read about his experience
and an interview with Amy.
 
We expressed interest in trying some
and we were very excited when Amy contacted us.


One of the biggest challenges Mom has with me
 is that my energy level is sometimes (always) a little off the charts.
I can have a hard time settling down at bedtime
 and can be a restless sleeper (yes I am spoiled, I sleep with Mom & Dad)
 So Mom told Amy we would like to try the CALM supplement. 
 When the package arrived Amy had also included a sample bottle of HAPPY,
 along with some REPAIR and CLEAR.

 For the purpose of this review we will focus on the CALM and HAPPY.


What you got there Mom??

Calm 

 
This supplement calms a stressed dog or cat
and treats puppy separation anxiety.
 It also relaxes hyper animals and encourages sleep

.
 
Happy reduces stress from grief, separation anxiety,
and environmental changes. 
 It helps your pet feel better and get back to normal


The supplements can be used on your food,
in your water and on your body

To help me get going with the Calm,
Amy suggested that Mom spray it in my face if I would tolerate it
That way I could absorb it faster

video

you can see that it did not bother me at all
In fact I kinda liked it.

We decided do the CALM three times a day
for the first week to get me going,

Into the second week Mom noticed that I was calmer.
Still "Naughty Greta" but a toned down version.
Bedtime was easier, I settled right down,
even when Mom & Dad had been gone for much of the evening.
And I slept better. Which helps them sleep better!

Mom also put the HAPPY in our water dish for all of us.
After dinner is usually a stressful time.
For some reason Hazel gets aggressive with me after we eat.
Mom or Dad picks me up when I get done eating.
When we are all done we go outside to hopefully
dissipate the negative energy.
After a week of putting the HAPPY in our water,
Mom noticed that Hazel was not showing much, if any, aggression
towards me after dinner!

To wrap up our review,
we were very happy with the supplements.
Amy was wonderful to deal with
answering any questions and concerns we had.
Thank you Amy!

Mom is sure we will be ordering more.
She realized how much it was helping when
she stopped giving it to me for a few days and
I was back to "bouncing of the walls" with energy.

Each of the 25 supplements target a specific issue
and can be purchased on AMAZON

The Pupsitters

Although Bailey & Hazel have been left
at home before with a pupsitter,
last week was my first time at home
without either Mom or Dad
 
And friends let me tell you,
you were right!
 
Pupsitters are a blast!
 
 
 
Mom and Dad's niece and her husband and little son
stayed the night with us.
 
The first thing Mom noticed when they got home
was the treat box
 
 
ALMOST EMPTY!!
 Yep!
 those pugsitters are suckers for the big brown eyes
 
And I got to stay up way past my bedtime
The Husband played with me till 2 AM!!
 
 
And you were right again
 Mom and Dad came home with goodies!
 

The town they went to had a PetsMart.
We do not have one in Pocatello
so Mom had to check it out
 

We all checked out the new toy
 
 
 
 
then OMD!
 

A Himalayan Chew!
I had heard about these
and I love it!
 

  I got a new collar
black with pink paw prints
 
 
Mom thought it was "ME"
 
 
OK Now
For some reason Mom wants to
show you the Hotel they stayed at
 
The Destination Inn
 
This is what it looked like outside
 
Just an old building
but inside each room was a theme
 
 Mom & Dad stayed in the Athens Room
 
 
do you see the little square on the bed?
 
look closer
V
 
Nice touch!
 
there was also cheesecake in the fridge
and sparkling cider on ice
 
 
the fancy tub
 

 
and a fireplace 
but being summer they did not use it
 
 So Mom & Dad had a nice anniversary
and we had a great time with
the Pugsitters!
 
 
Next time they want to go away for a night
 
we'll be just fine

A Learning Experience

I went to my very first obedience trial this weekend.
Mom and I were entered in Beginner Novice

 It was a great learning experience for me!
 
which is a positive way of saying 
that we did not get a 
qualifying score either day
 
But I improved a lot from Saturday to Sunday


 This is the ring where we did our stuff. 
Saturday I was a little wound up.
It took me half way through the heeling exercise
to settle in. I was supposed to do a sit stay
while Mom walked around the ring
 but I laid down when she was about half way around.
 
On Sunday Mom made a few adjustments
and we did MUCH better.
In fact we were sooooo close to qualifying.
I Heeled nicely, my Figure 8 was better.
Sit for Exam - nailed it.
 did my Sit Stay, even though it was hot.
 
All I had to do was my recall and we would qualify.
Mom called me and I headed right for her
but then veered off to her left to sniff the fence.
She called again, no response
called third time -
Oh Ok I better go sit in front of Mom
 
but she is only allowed to call twice.
Dang !! So close!!
 
 
 
Mom thought I did pretty good
for my very first time at an obedience trial.
There are a lot of people and dogs
and stuff going on.
She was really happy that I improved
from Saturday to Sunday.
 
We have two months to practice before our next trial
I know I can do it!!
 
 
We want to give a shout out to our furiend
BENNY
Fight like a Frenchie!!!
 
We love you buddy, Lily and Mom too.

Even through the storm clouds
a beautiful light still shines


And this is a blog about Pugs 
so we want to tell you about

  Pepe the Pug

His story was shared with us and
touched us so much 
 we want to share it with you.

 Pepe was stepped on as a puppy
 and is paralyzed
This video tells the story of his unquenchable spirit,
 the wonderful rescue organization that helped him
when his owners gave him up,
 how he found his forever home with someone
who saw his inner (and outer) beauty
and fell in love with him despite his disability.
We know his story will bring a smile to your heart.
