Fleas, Ticks, Joints and Alfie

Cyndi:  We have lots to talk about today so let's just dive in so we can get to the good parts, the freebies.

Micah:  We were glad to have an opportunity to try some Pet Naturals of Vermont products.

Cameron:  Unfortunately, we needed Jan to open the products for us, which she did before taking photos.

Marcus:  She not only opened them first, but she wrote on them.  *paw to head*  Oh, the shame of having to post a used product photo.

Merci:  Here is Jan using a towelette to apply the natural Flea & Tick repellent on Sam's back.  She started out using one of these on each of us dogs for a couple of days and then changed to every two or three days.  We line up for a turn because we get a full body massage with it.  Oh, does that feel good.  To us.  Jan kind of creaks and groans. 

Percy:  The wipes are for dogs, cats and horses.  Jan was supposed to try the towelettes on the dogs, but she decided to also ry to use the wipes on us kitties to see how we'd do with them.  She wimped out after wrestling with three of us.  We were totally uncooperative. 

Sam:  * grin*  There's no nip scent.  That's why the cats don't like them. The towelettes are moistened with the oils of lemongrass, cinnamon, sesame and castor. These oils mask your pet's scent and repels pests. Jan thinks the towelettes smell good but she's not a flea or tick. 

Buddy:  I have the most sensitive skin and allergies, so Jan was anxious to try this product on me.  I haven't been using it long but Jan is pleased I seem to be scratching and chewing less and she hopes it continues. The other dogs are scratching less.too.

Pet Naturals is offering a special deal. The first 100 submissions at will receive a FREE 8 oz. Bottle of the Flea and Tick Spray and a valuable coupon.  After the first 100 entries, a valuable discount coupon will be emailed. So if you would like to try this natural repellant for your pet, don't delay.

Rusty:  Jan thought it would be best to let me try the Hip + Joints for Cats since I am such a large cat.  I have been receiving two twice a day.  She took some photos when she introduced me to the chews but most were too blurry to see more than a mass of fur because I was moving so fast.  Here I am taking one from Jan's fingers. 

Rusty:  This is me after I finished.  She made it black and white so I'm not a total blur.  I have been eating my chews with gusto each day.  When the bag is opened, the other kitties (and woofies) rush to try to steal them.  They smell appetizing and are tasty.  I'd have to take them a lot longer to know if they are helping me but Jan says the main ingredients are very good for joints:  Glucosamine HCl, MSM, Condroitin Sulfate, Ascorbic Acid (Vit C), DMG, EPA, DHA and Manganese.

Pet Naturals is offering a special deal. The first 100 submissions at will receive a Free Bag of Hip + Joint for Cats and a valuable coupon.  After the first 100 entries, a valuable discount coupon will be emailed. So if you would like to try this natural product for your cat, don't delay.

Sam:  I'm such a big dog Jan is concerned for my joints as I age.  So she suggested I try the Hip + Joint bone-shaped chews for medium and large dogs.  This was my first one.  Please explain to Jan that I am not a pig just because I swallow them whole.  Marcus is doing a dance.  Percy is trying to steal the bag.  All the Funny Farmers want to steal my chews.  I have to swallow them whole!  Well, that and I want more.

Sam:  Uh, what do you mean I only get 3?  I'm a big boy.  I should get more.  Okay.  I'll wait till dinnertime, if I have to.

Pet Naturals is offering a special deal. The first 100 submissions at will receive a FREE BAG of Hip + Joint for Dogs and a valuable coupon.  After the first 100 entries, a valuable discount coupon will be emailed. So if you would like to try this natural product for your dog, don't delay.

Pet Naturals provided us with the products to try but we were not compensated.  Any opinions expressed are strictly our own.  We prefer to use natural products whenever possible. 

Percy:  And now for our Funny Farmer Felines Friday interview.  We are excited to introduce Alfie of the blog Mollie and Alfie. Some of you might already know Alfie and his woofie sister Mollie, but he brushed up on his English just for this interview, so don't miss it.

  1. We bet Jan's notes are so she doesn't make mistakes. TBT makes notes like that too on his own stuff. Like "no more than one per day".

  2. Better the notes than the oops Bailey now we have to start all over again.

  3. What an interesting selection of products mew have!

    Really enjoyed the pictures, especially Rusty's, just purrfect!!

  4. WE know both Mollie and ALFIE... they are quite the pair. We love them.
    OMD those toweletts would have a hard time getting all over our long furs... BUTT anythingy to keep fleas and Ticks away is a GOOD thingy.

  5. Very interesting. i'm going to pass this information on to a friend who might benefit from using it on her kitty. Thanks.

  6. I didn't know about the natural flea & tick stuff. Wondering if that would work well on my Max doggie. I'm having so much fun Pet Parading! Thanks to such wonderful co-hosts such as you it's really grown. Have a fabulous weekend! ~Rascal and Rocco

  14. Holy moly, that's a whole lot of stuff you got to try, gang! We have some of their calming treats that we still have to try, and are encouraged by the fact that you all seem to like Pet Naturals for the most part! :)

    Thanks for co-hosting the Pet Parade.

    We're off to go check out your interview with Mollie and Alfie now!


  15. Glucosamine and chondroitin can be really helpful, and a lot of people don't realise cats get arthritis as they can be really good at hiding it! Good to hear the supplements are tasty too :)

  16. Looks like pawsome products you got there !
    Now I'm of to read the interview on Mousebreath :)


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
