    62. How To Find Confidence As A Pet Parent

    62. How To Find Confidence As A Pet Parent

    It's ironic that we have so much information at our fingertips, yet, we are as confused as ever. What's the best food to feed my dog? What kind of cat litter is best? Should I give my pet this drug, or is there something better, or a natural alternative?

    It can be so confusing to be a pet parent today, so I wanted to take this opportunity for a solo episode where I dive into becoming a more confident pet parent in the face of the confusing world of social media and science ideology we live in today. 

    I hope this episode resonates with you, and if so, please take a moment to share it with someone else you know who may be struggling. We can find strength together and as always, when we know better, we can do better.

    61. HOW You Feed Your Pet Is As Important As What You Feed

    61. HOW You Feed Your Pet Is As Important As What You Feed

    We talk a lot about WHAT to feed your pet, but how often have you thought about HOW to feed your pet?
    Today, we’re talking with Carol Smeja from Mine Pet Platter about the BEST way to feed your animal, and why (and how) it makes a difference to their health and wellbeing.


    In many ways, how you feed IS just as important as what you feed!
    What will be discussed:
    1. How your animal’s mealware can positively - or negatively - impact their mood, appetite, and stress levels 
    2. Why science supports ditching the bowl and how it is good for your animal
    3. Why supporting your pet’s instinctual drive will make them thrive

    I especially love how we dive into food and dog training, but I'm biased!

    60. Helping Your Dog Heal With Nutrition

    60. Helping Your Dog Heal With Nutrition

    There have certainly been times when walking into a pet store, let alone a healthy pet store, has been overwhelming. Whether I just didn’t know what to get because my cat or dog was sick, or I knew I wanted something better for food but the labels were confusing. 


    That’s why I’m so glad that there are more and more healthy pet store owners and pet advocates out there to help. 


    Krysta Fox and Jeff DiRe own Pug and Hound Apothecary in Illinois and along with their instafamous pug Bruce, they are helping pets and their parents find healthier alternatives to food and medicine. 


    As you’ll hear in today’s episode, Krysta and Jeff have an extraordinary background in the pet industry and each have a passion for helping people and their pets. 


    Oh, and don’t let the fact that they’re in IL fool you, no, they also offer online consultations … so stay tuned because I have a feeling you’ll fall in love with this super duo as much as I have.


    P.S. I bet you can’t guess what their favorite foods are! Make sure to stick around til the end to find out!

    59. How To Help Your Dog When They're Sick (and When They're NOT!)

    59. How To Help Your Dog When They're Sick (and When They're NOT!)

    Chances are, you've been to the vet a few times with your dog or cat. You may have noticed that lots of different ailments such as diarrhea, ear infections, itchy skin, etc., seem to get similar treatments.
    Antibiotics, maybe antinausea, pain meds, and sometimes steroids. Immune suppressors are also often given for chronic itchy skin. 
    There is a crisis in veterinary medicine in the United States. Opioids and antibiotics are heavily overprescribed. Some prescriptions have been proven ineffective and are still prescribed.
    If you've ever been given a drug for your pet " just in case" or given a drug and found yourself going back saying that it's not working, you're not alone.
    Angela Ardolino joins me today to discuss a topic so important that every pet parent needs to hear. There is a better way. We have medicine that helps without side effects. It helps every animal because it's all natural and works with the body as nature intended. She has 
    Gathered an all-star panel of veterinarians for the do no harm online event that you don't want to miss. Join me today as I get the scoop on CBD from the original pet medical cannabis expert 
    Angela has so much love for all animals and She's on a mission to help you heal your pets naturally. You're not going to want to miss one second of today's episode. She's laying it all out for you in a way that is easy to understand and she gives you practical tips for what to do next.

    WOW! What a show Super Zoo was! It was my first year attending and I was blown away by how big the show floor was, all the new products, and emerging brands, and just how wonderful the people of the pet community are.
