(PRESS RELEASE) COEUR D’ALENE, ID – Most pet parents are fully aware that annual vet visits, regular exercise and a nutritious diet are essential for a pet’s overall health and wellbeing. Unfortunately, dental care often goes unnoticed, yet it is just as important to implement into a pet’s daily routine. February is “Pet Dental Health Month,” the perfect time to promote regular oral health maintenance and check-ups for your pet. Oxyfresh, the leading provider of safe, environmentally friendly products for people and pets, offers a premium line of pet dental products that will help keep your pet’s breath fresh and their teeth smiling and healthy.

Dental disease is an infection of the teeth, gums and surrounding structures. It is the most common major health problem of cats and dogs today. In fact, it has been estimated that by age three, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats have some degree of gum disease. Ever since cats and dogs became domesticated, their natural source of “dental floss” and teeth cleaning (their prey) has been removed significantly from their diets. Canned and dried foods do not provide the same level of oral hygiene, and sadly, many pets suffer the consequences.

It’s crucial to pay attention to your pet’s smile because a disease that starts in the teeth and gums can eventually lead to kidney and heart disease or problems with the intestinal tract or joints. The key to managing dental disease is prevention. Pet parents must make a commitment to schedule their dog or cat’s annual oral examinations and cleanings, as well as practice regular dental care at home.

Different animals will exhibit different signs of possible dental disease, but there are a few common symptoms to be mindful of: redness of gums; bad breath; loose, discolored or broken teeth; tenderness around the mouth; drooling or dropping food; bleeding from the mouth; and loss of appetite or weight loss. It’s important to remember that although noticing one of these symptoms could be a signal of a greater problem, most of the time there are no signs at all since animals tend to instinctively hide their pain as a survival mechanism. With this said, prevention is essential to ensure optimal oral health and hygiene, which will minimize their chance of developing dental disease.

“Keeping your pet’s dental health in optimum condition is just as important as your own dental health,” shares Tom Lunneborg, vice president of product development for Oxyfresh. “If their mouth isn’t healthy, they are more susceptible to illness and periodontal disease. Pets are exposed to much more bacteria because they chew on everything. If they have bleeding gums, this is a direct opportunity for bacteria to enter their bloodstream. Thankfully we created a safe, simple and effective pet dental care line that will dramatically improve the oral health of your pet.”

Similar to all Oxyfresh products, their pet dental line is made in the USA, cruelty-free, non-toxic, safe, gentle and effective. Their products include a Pet Dental Water Additive, Pet Dental Breath Spray and Pet Dental Gel Toothpaste.

(PRESS RELEASE) Hikari will unveil a variety of innovative new fish food and reptile food products at Global Pet Expo, booth 1735. Hikari is introducing Hikari Herptile, a line of groundbreaking food products for lizards and other reptiles. The new products include ready-to-use gel items that will entice lizards with their natural food-like texture while providing all of the nutrients and minerals required for optimal health.

All Hikari food products are uniquely created for the specific types of animals for which they are intended. Hikari Herptile features the following supplement-rich, scientifically formulated and lab-verified nutrient blends:

  • LeopaGel. Developed for Leopard Geckos and other insect-eating lizards, LeopaGel offers an appealing live food-like texture.
  • CrestGel. Ideal for the Crested Gecko and other fruit and insect-eating lizards, CrestGel has a natural food-like texture that lizards will happily attack.
  • DragonGel. DragonGel boasts a natural food-like texture that Bearded Dragons and other vegetable-eating lizards will adore.
  • Dragon Delite. This scientifically balanced nutrient mix is ideal for adult Bearded Dragons over 8 inches, and other vegetable and insect-eating lizards with larger appetites. Lizards will love the pellets’ texture, which is akin to live food.

Hikari Herptile products are designed to make the process of feeding lizards and other reptiles easier for owners, and tastier and more nutritious for pets. A 30-day supply of each product is packed in an Oxy-Stop dual format package with an easy-feed spout for proper proportion offerings — which eliminates the hassle of mixing food and dealing with odor and wasted product. Most importantly, no additional supplementation is required, as each diet provides the nutrients and minerals that reptiles need to thrive. With continued exclusive use of Hikari Herptile products, pet owners will observe a noticeable reduction in waste odor and stickiness, thereby minimizing the amount of time required to clean their reptiles’ habitats.

(PRESS RELEASE) Dryland Dog Mushing is the newest sensation in active dogs and owners coming together for the ultimate exercise experience. K9 Adventures will be showcasing innovative Dryland Mushing technology, The Newest Sacco Dog Cart, at this year’s Global Pet Expo, booth 6651.

Originally started in Europe to train sled dogs in the summer months when the snow would melt; Dryland Mushing has since turned into a year-round, worldwide activity and/or sport in which a dog or team of dogs pull a human on dryland (sand, dirt, grass, rock or cool pavement). Today, local Urban and Dryland Mushing groups have become increasingly popular and meet-ups are happening through parks and nature trails around the country. With safety training and the highest quality components in place, anyone can participate in Dryland Mushing.

The Sacco Dog Cart is world renowned as Urban Mushing’s top-of-the-line foldable cart. Boasting number one in safety, comfort and durability; K-9 Adventures is offering the Sacco cart Designed By Heine Di Leggerini, Sacco International.

Features of the Sacco Dog Cart include:

  • Foldable high-grade steel chassis with an adjustable folding seat back for easy transport and storage.
  • The wheels are 24 inches with low rolling resistant tires and quick disconnecting wheel axle assembly for easy one-step wheel removal and installation.
  • All four wheels utilize hydraulic disc brakes with separate parking brake levers.
  • With a 59-inch steering radius the cart has an independent front axle with swing free steering assembly and almost 4 inches of adjustable rear wheel suspension.

“It is our goal to bring the Sacco cart into more homes and appeal to not only the mushers but to anyone who wants to adventure and spend time with their high energy dog,” expresses Steven Nornhold, CEO at K9 Adventures, “We are very excited to showcase our product at this year’s Global Pet Expo and we can’t wait to share the many benefits of Dryland Mushing and the Sacco Dog Cart with all who attend!”

Disposable, Biodegradable Bowls Available to U.S. Retailers

They are made with bamboo fiber available for hotels and retailers to offer the growing number of pet owners.

(PRESS RELEASE) On-the-go lifestyles and traveling pets means a need for more convenient disposable products for pet owners. Introducing First FWD, LLC’s disposable and biodegradable colorful pet feeding bowls made with bamboo fiber available for hotels and retailers to offer the growing number of pet owners. With more than 1,600 hotels that accommodate pets and many more retailers moving away from plastic, biodegradable pet bowls are a better alternative to helping the environment and peace of mind for pet owners.

First FWD, LLC (https://amzn.to/30Fr0tF) is bringing 100% biodegradable colorful pet bowls to the United States largest hotels and retailers. These pet bowls are made with bamboo fiber that easily decomposes naturally in the environment. There are six different color bowls (Light Blue, Pink, Yellow, Green, Purple and Dark Blue) that come in five different sizes (S, M, L, XL, XXL).

Like many pet owners, First FWD found that traveling with pets meant using multiple plastic bowls or using the same metal bowl throughout a week stay. Leaving a pet’s food and water bowls out for days without cleaning them runs the risk of spreading dangerous bacteria and potentially contracting a foodborne illness. Also, using multiple plastic pet bowls means more plastic pollution for the environment. The solution was to provide a biodegradable pet bowl that was stylish, colorful, functional, as well as sturdy.

The shift toward ethically disposable products is here and First FWD sought out a supplier that is economical; keeping costs affordable for hotels and retailers. Gone are the plain compostable bowls that are single use, flimsy, and boring. As well, no one wants to carry foldable plastic bowls that need to be washed every night when traveling. First FWD, LLC is the first in the United States to bring stylish and colorful biodegradable bowls that are ready for purchase in small quantities or in bulk.

Brenda Button at First FWD, LLC is North American’s Sales Representative working with all businesses to meet budget and supply. Smaller orders can be easily ordered online at: https://amzn.to/30Fr0tF. For larger orders, or a specific color, you can get a quote or sample by speaking directly with Brenda at (403) 681-7225 or 232760@email4pr.com.
