Weekly Drool Recipe: Healthy Protein-Packed Dog Pizza Treats via Aleksandra Ninova

At Best Bully Sticks we have some pretty amazing customers—who care about their dogs through and through. From tip of the nose to tip of the tail, our customer will go great lengths to get their dog the best and healthiest options for a full and happy canine life. Aleksandra Ninova is no different. She even took some of our safe and healthy treats and made her protein-packed dog treats! We thought we’d share her story and recipe with you so you can recreate this healthy and tasty treat for your pup!

As a new doggie mom, I want the best for my little boy Bruno. I spend a bunch of time researching the best dog food, best feeding techniques (such as rotational feeding – switching food brands every few months), as well as healthiest, natural dog treats. I also love cooking, so I decided to cook up some treats for my little guy. When researching recipes, I saw that just about all (basically all) of them have a lot of flour as an ingredient. Granted, the flour is usually whole wheat, or brown rice, but I was determined to find a way to minimize the amount of flour and starch in my dog treats as dogs do not NEED too much of it (if any at all). So thus I looked around my supplies to see what I could substitute flour for. read more…

Rescue Spotlight: STAR Foundation

When you love a dog, you usually have respect for all living creatures. The same is true for one wildlife rescue in New York. Today we have the chance of sharing the story of STAR Foundation with you! What started out as a service for missing domestic pets, soon became the spark of change for rescue and rehab of wildlife. Read more about STAR below through the words of Lori Ketcham, Director.

When & Why did you start?

We started about 20 years ago.  One of the founders was retiring from a career as a dog groomer, and the first project of the organization was Pet Line lost and found service.  The goal was to provide a network that would help pet owners locate their missing pets, finders get the pets back to their rightful owners, and the unclaimed pets into new, safe homes.  We also offered pet tags that included a 24 hour service that would get pets home safely if lost anywhere in the United States.  The fees from this service were used to rescue pets who were injured and who would not stand a chance of being adopted unless they received vet care and rehab first.

The founders also were licensed wildlife rehabilitators, and as this became known, the wildlife started to far number the domestic animals.  Wildlife rehab and rescue quickly overtook the organization as the primary mission.  We now care for 100’s of wild animals annually, and have many permanent resident wild and exotic animals who help us with our educational programs, and act as foster parents for the orphans who come to STAR to be raised and released back to the wild. read more…

BBS Product Spotlight: Anxiety Solutions for Your Dog

September means back to school for over 75 million students around the country and over 7 million education personnel. With students and teachers out of the house, quite a few four-legged friends are facing a quieter, less active day-to-day routine than they’ve become accustomed to over the past few months. For those pups who suffer from separation anxiety, this means more than just fewer belly rubs a day. Dogs who experience extreme stress from being left alone or drastic shifts in their daily routine can exhibit physical side effects ranging from excessive chewing, barking and urinating, to more upsetting signs like diarrhea and vomiting. To help these pups deal with change, Best Bully Sticks offers a variety of anxiety solutions for your dog:

Animals Apawthecary Tranquility Blend: Reduce your dog’s stress – and thus your stress – with this glycerine-based herbal relaxation formula by Animal Essentials. Ideal for dogs and cats, this made in the USA pet product contains certified organic extract of skullcap herb for alleviation of nervous tension, valerian root and passion flower for their anti-anxiety properties, and oat flowering tops for additional soothing and relaxation. With a sweet taste and alcohol-free formula, this 1oz bottle contains a big sigh of relief inside.

The Anxiety Wrap: The Anxiety Wrap is a pressure wrap designed to lessen fear and anxiety in dogs through maintained stress-relieving acupressure. The first of its kind on the market, the wrap targets acupressure points on the dog’s body with a light pressure to release a calming effect. Featuring adjustable elastic bands for customization to each individual dog, the wrap relieves stress without inhibiting the dog’s ability to use the bathroom, eat or perform other daily activities. Available in sizes mini to large, and accompanied by a 100% satisfaction guarantee and free online support, the Anxiety Wrap is a great way to relieve anxiety without the use of medication.

Bach Rescue Remedy: Bach’s Rescue Remedy is all-natural stress relief for dogs. Safe and gentle, this alcohol-free formula helps reduce your pup’s tension and restores emotional balance. Recommended by vets worldwide, this soothing remedy includes cherry plum, clematis, impatiens, rock rose and Star of Bethlehem. Available in a 20ml bottle, this made-in-the-USA product is mixed together to help your dog overcome emotional stressors such as separation anxiety, adjusting to new surroundings, and visits to the groomer or vet.

 

For additional help with separation anxiety or during other stressful times, also consider giving your dog an all-natural bully stick to gnaw on for tension relief!
