Purrfect Pet Presents for the Pet or Pet Lover

This holiday don’t forget about the furry friend on your list.  Recent scares of salmonella and contaminated treats and food has us fearful of feeding our four-legged family members anything but the best stuff.  Some of the brands that we thought were “natural” are no longer (check out this list of recalls). We have some purrfectly eco-friendly, natural, and healthy pet presents for the pet or pet lover on your list.

 Pet Presents

My pup knows when our BarkBox is outside the door, its the gift that keeps on giving all year long! When you sign up for BarkBox, every month you will receive a box in the mail with four or more carefully selected products and presents for your dog – anything from toys, bones and all-natural treats to hygiene products and innovative new gadgets! Eco-friendly and natural products with a portion of proceeds from each box will go to help doggies-in-need.

Eco Friendly Toys

This isn’t an ordinary mouse, the original cat toy from West Paw Design has evolved! With an eco-fabric coat, filled with USDA certified organically grown catnip and a tinkling bell and genuine leather tail, your cat won’t be able to leave it alone! Small enough to bat around, yet big enough to really sink some claws into, this is a purrfect present for the cat on your list. This hand-crafted mouse carries all the signature characteristics of authenticity your cat will go crazy for! Dog toys are all natural too!

Woof Worthy Treats

Only the good stuff for your furry friend. My local pet food store calls Stella and Chewy’s “dog crack”. I couldn’t get my pup to eat his kibble and sprinkled some of this raw, natural food on it. Within seconds he devoured the whole bowl! This isn’t just another treat that’s full of additives for your dog or cat, it’s natural and healthier than most dog foods on the market! Their commitment to quality starts with their ingredients. Every Stella & Chewy’s product is made with raw, naturally raised meat, poultry or fish, sourced from USDA-inspected facilities, without added hormones or antibiotics.
