    What do you do when you get a new puppy home and, after looking around, you simply cant find delicious healthy treats that are packed with nutritious ingredients? Ingredients that you actually recognise!

    If you are anything like Will and Alex from the company Edie & Roxie you set out to create those healthy foods yourselves. After days of cooking up batches of rice and chicken however, they soon realised that there had to be a better way, and so their brand was born.

    We welcome them to Pet...

    Have you ever wondered what is really in your cats food? Many cat owners are led to believe they are feeding the very best to their cats by cute and persuasive cat food ads and labels but, in fact, they are unwittingly making their loving pets sick. Are you confused by vague ingredient descriptions on labels such as vegetable protein source, poultry byproducts or all natural animal protein? Do your eyes glass over when you see additives like butylated hydroxyanisole on your cats food label?

    We all get to October time and we feel that Christmas is ages away, but then suddenly the last couple of months of the year rush by and we realise we are totally unprepared.

    We know that we need to make preparations to ensure our family Christmas goes with a swing, but what of our four-legged companions? When everyone is gathered around the tree and wrapping paper is being ripped off, its important to make sure that your dog has something to get excited about too.

    Therefore, today I thought I...

    People dont just own beanbags. They enter into a whole beanbag philosophy one of fun, comfort, and relaxation combined into one.

    For people that have a beanbag they struggle to go back to a plain old chair. The philosophy takes hold, whether its a small cushion-sized beanbag to perch on or an enormous mattress-sized one that swallows the body whole.

    Its not only humans that fall in love with the beanbag way of life. Pets of all shapes and sizes fit naturally with beanbags, especially dogs. And...

    In our go-go-go society its often difficult to step back and take care of ourselves. We claim we are too busy to go grocery shopping and prepare healthy meals. We just dont have the time to go to the gym or jog in the park. But the truth is these are excuses. Believe it or not, caring for your pets health is just as important as caring for your own health. They dont deserve dry processed foods any more than you deserve that sodium soaked frozen meal. Sending Fido to wander in the yard may be...

    To start litter training your bunny, take note of the area of his or her cage or rabbit-proof room that your bunny normally...

    Square_140_1.-intro

    Ever since I was little weve had pets. At any given point in time, my family has had the privilege of being the home to at least one cat and usually a couple of dogs. Back in the day, I used to place little pillows on the floor to serve as their pallets pets need soft places to rest, too, right?

    But as Ive gotten older and my tastes have become more sophisticated, I find myself wanting to give them more than a soft place for their paws. When my husband and I finally purchased our first home...
