Products and links
we use and love...

 

There's some great stuff out there that I use, and have found it mostly through trial and error. Here's a beginning of the list -- no endorsements here, folks, just a happy customer... :)

 


"Unchain your dog" website...

 

Well, dogs shouldn't live their lives tied to a chain... ever. This is seemingly logical to most of us, but a lot of folks think otherwise.

Click here to go to a site spreading the word that chaining is cruel and inhumane.

 



Home-Again Microchip Identification

 

 

 

Spud was my first pup to receive a microchip, back in 1998. We used the Home Again brand, which is a partnership between Schering Plough and the American Kennel Club (AKC). I love this product - it's construction is superior to its competitors, and the AKC's registration and database is user-friendly and effective.

All dogs chipped through Smilin' Pitbull Rescue get a discounted pet registration fee. All incoming pups are scanned for pre-existing chips. All dogs chipped through SPBR are scanned before their adoption to ensure proper identification. For more information on this product, click here.

Esbilac Milk Supplement

 

 

I just received a call from a representative at PetAg, who makes Esbilac, a milk supplement for puppies and nursing mothers. PetAg made a donation of Esbilac to Smilin' Pitbull Rescue -- THANK YOU VERY MUCH! This means a lot to us, since Philly is presently eating 5-6 meals a day, all supplemented with Esbilac.

The PetAg rep. also told me of their Breeder's Club which offers discounts on Esbilac through collected UPC bar-codes. This club is open to breeders (which we aren't) and rescues (which we are!). So, if anyone out there would like to cut-out their UPCs from PetAg products and donate them to SPBR, we'd be forever thankful! Pet Ag's site is here and I can be contacted at eric@spbr.org for mailing information of the UPCs.

Again, THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts -- this means so much to us!

 


Blocky-Dog Collars

 





Precious sports a martingale-style Blocky Dog collar -- which she can't slip out of and that also keeps her the prettiest girl on the block! Click below for their site -- no affiliation, just love their stuff!!

Parvostop

 


ParvoStop™ is an E.P.A. registered Disinfectant and Cleanser designed to control Canine parvovirus as well as general disinfection and cleansing of animal quarters and kennels.

ParvoStop™ is different from commonly used disinfectants in that it penetrates the biofilms present in kennel and cages. Biofilms are formed through microbial activity and protect the pathogenic organisms by preventing disinfectants from contacting the organisms. Chlorine, a commonly used disinfectant, has been shown not to penetrate biofilms and has a tendency to be bound up by alkaline and hard water, further decreasing the effectiveness of the chlorine treatment. BioSecure's site is here.

In short, parvo is an extremely deadly virus. With this product and the great customer support at BioSecure, we are doing our part to ensure our little-uns become happy, healthy adults!
