Solvit Product Review & GiVeAwAy!

Posted on

Solvit Cargo Liner

The Solvit company’s main focus is to keep humans and their pets happy and comfortable in their time spent together. They offer a huge array of products! There are products for traveling, to aid your pet in getting around, and even products to use to keep your pet (and you active!). Great company, with even better ideas…

The product I am reviewing today is the Solvit SUV Cargo Liner.

I drive a small sub-type vehicle named a Chevrolet HHR. I use my car for just about everything and anything. I put my pet sitting dogs in my car, my new piglet goes for rides in the car, every animal I currently own has been through my car. By having this vast array of animals in my vehicle – lets just say that it gets messy in there! This is was I was using in my vehicle:

I know, not exactly ‘tidy’ looking – but it did the job, somewhat…

I was thrilled to try out the new cargo liner as I have always hated the way the moving blanket looked.. and it was definitely not waterproof….

Take a peak at this!

This cargo liner was such an easy and beautiful change for my car. The dogs were not apprehensive at all to jump right onto it. We then gave the liner the true test : all three dogs got rawhides while we went for a drive! About 45minutes into the rawhides, we arrived at our destination to find that there was no (drool) staining/spots to be found! Though if there were – the liner is machine washable.. and has a lifetime warranty!

Would I recommend this product to a friend? YES definitely. You really can’t go wrong!

Importance of Tick Prevention

Posted on

As a Veterinary technician, I have seen pets infected with more tick-borne diseases then I care to even mention… From Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Lyme Disease, Erlichia and Anaplamosis… and more..

It is true that now people have been more diligent about using tick prevention on their pets  - but they often forget about the humans! I have found a product that my husband has been diligent about using on his fishing gear, and it is amazing!

Sawyer Clothing Spray


What are the benefits?

  • One application lasts for SIX weeks and through SIX washes (and dries!)!
  • Apply to your favorite clothing or shoes and just let dry.
  • It will NOT ruin your clothes/shoes!
  • Odorless once dry!
  • Repels ticks, mosquitos, chiggers and lice!
  • You can also spray your tent if you’re out camping!

Want to know where to buy this?


I recommend the actual yellow pump sprayer.. I like it much better than the aerosol!


Pet Box Review!

Pet Box


What exactly is a Pet Box?

A box which is delivered once monthly to your house – full of toys, treats, and goodies for your pet! You start out by filling out a questionnaire for your pet this make the boxes even more individual to your furry friend. You may then pick the plan that suits your buddy the best. The pet box company then sends your pet’s box right to your door!

What’s so different about Pet Box versus ‘those other companies’?

The Pet Boxes that arrive at your door are tailored to your pet! The questionnaire which is filled out for your pet assures that each pet box is individually tailored to the pet in which is to receive it.

My favorite part?

For each box that Pet Box sells, they feed a shelter animal! What’s better than that?!?!

What’s included in the box?

My pet box was PACKED full of fun items! There are SO many different brands that participate in the Pet Box (take a look at all the companies by: clicking here). In our box we received some delicious (the dogs thought so anyways!) skin and coat treats! Boy were they begging for them! We got a new brush for the pups and cats that TOTALLY helps with shedding. We got a few more varieties of treats, a pigs ear, and a great big meaty bone! Overall, my pets were super delighted with their Pet Box.

Would I recommend this product?

A great big YES! Fantastic variety! The pups were interested in all of it!

Red Barn Products!

Posted on

This review is for a few:

Red Barn Products

I contacted the lovely individuals at Red Barn Pet Products to see if they had any ‘up and coming’ products for the pet world that they would like my ‘professional testers’ to try out – and they sure did!

Greek Yogurt Filled Dog Bones

These bones are a hit! The bones have solid white exteriors and are filled with a creamy greek yogurt-like substance. (No lie, I love the smell of them!) The fact that these bones kept my pups busy for a solid 3 hours – during which we havebeen in the midst of a New England snow storm.. is fantastic. I am sending these bones off as highly recommended.. I am also thinking that once they finally get all the greek yogurt out of them, I’m going to reuse these bones and fill them with other goodies!


Bully Coated Sweet Potato Slices

What sweet little treats! These treats are actually sweet potatoes which have been dried, then coated with Red Barn’s special ‘bully stick coating’. I am all for natural foods for my dogs – and what can be better than sweet potatoes? Sweet potatoes are naturally high in Vitamin C, potassium, and Vitamin A. You really can not go wrong with these tasty little concoctions! My dogs have been begging for these – I’ve got to keep this bag hidden!


Denta Doggie Dental Chews

These little bones are filled with ‘doggie fresh toothpaste’, and are not only great for the pups to get ‘chewing’ out of their systems… but also make their breath minty-fresh! As a certified veterinary technician, one of the health issues I see frequently is dental disease (and obesity, but that’s for another post!) and any chewing action a dog can do will only aid to keep the tartar off their teeth. These chews would be great for a smaller dog or a dog who isn’t a really ‘tough chewer’ – as my dogs chewed through them in under 20 minutes. I still highly recommend these – they can only help those pearly whites shine!

I’ve got the skinny on Zukes…

Posted on


Zuke’s Skinny Bakes treats!

It’s no doubt that I am very fond of the Zuke’s company, but these treats put a smile on my face!

One of the biggest health problems I see daily (as a Veterinary Technician) is obese animals. Obesity in dogs can cause a variety of issues: diabetes, severe arthritis, high blood pressure, overall a lessened quality of life. These new treats from Zuke’s are only 10 calories per treat – which make them an ideal training treat (or good for the general snack!). They are absolutely ideal for that ‘doggie on a diet’.

Skinny Bakes come in three varieties: Peanut Butter & Banana, Cherry ‘N Berry Crunch, and Pumpkin ‘N Sweet Potato. These treats smell absolutely DELICIOUS – remind your husband that they are dog treats! As always, these treats are free from fillers and the ingredients use are whole foods. There is no corn, wheat or soy in these treats! What exactly are the ingredients, you ask?

Cherry n’ Berry Crunch: Oatmeal, Pearled Barley, Rice Bran, Oat Fiber, Cane Molasses, Berry Blend (Cranberries, Cherries, Blueberries), Oil Blend (Canola oil, Sunflower oil, Olive oil), Natural Flavor, Rosemary Extract, Mixed Tocopherols (a preservative).

Peanut Butter n’ Banana Crunch: Oatmeal, Pearled Barley, Rice Bran, Peanut Butter, Bananas, Potatoes, Oat Fiber, Cane Molasses, Oil Blend (Canola oil, Sunflower oil, Olive oil), Natural Flavor, Rosemary Extract, Mixed Tocopherols (a preservative).

Pumpkin n’ Sweet Potato Crunch: Oatmeal, Pearled Barley, Rice Bran, Pumpkin, Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Potatoes, Pea Fiber, Cane Molasses, Oil Blend (Canola oil, Sunflower oil, Olive oil), Natural Flavor, Rosemary Extract, Mixed Tocopherols (a preservative).

I feel comfortable feeding my own animals these treats, and do on a regular basis. This is a company, and these are treats I stand behind.

Are you in search of fun toys and healthy, tasty treats for your pet? How about having a company – who has a pet nutritionist – pick out your cat’s toys, treats, and food? The even better part? It get shipped to you in the neat little box – monthly!

I was quite impressed once this box arrived for “Maisy” and “Mackerel” – and they were overjoyed as well! Our box came with several things: two adorable cat toys (crab and a football!), a bottle of ‘Catchup’ treat for cats, Smart Bites Greenies Hard Cat Treats, Freeze Dried Chicken Treats, Pet Cleanup Wipes, and some canned food in which my two furry loved ones went crazy for!

I love the fact that these boxes arrive monthly for my kitties – it’s even easier that everything in the box was picked out by a professional! The fact that a pet nutritionist picks out the food and treats is such a reassurance for me … I only want healthy foods for my kitties!

What was the biggest hit in the whole box? Mackerel loved the crab, of course!!!



Would I recommend the Pawalla boxes? Absolutely YES
