In recent weeks we've introduced a variety of new canned dog food. Here's a glimpse at them plus other new products you'll find in our store.

Koha canned food is made in the USA from proteins sourced in New Zealand, Australia, and France. We now carry three lines: Limited Ingredient Diet (single protein recipe), Slow Cooked Stews (combination proteins), and Stew Recipes (novel proteins plus pumpkin). All of these are grain and potato free and contain no carrageenan or guar gum.

Lotus Pet Foods uses their own micro-cannery in Southern California to make Stew, Loaf, and Just Juicy food for dogs and Paté and Just Juicy food for cats. They have a wide variety of protein recipes, and all ingredients are sourced in the US, Canada, and New Zealand. All of their canned food is made without using guar gum, carrageenan, or xanthan gum. Instead, they use agar agar for any thickening needs. All of their vitamins and minerals are made in the US, Europe, and Canada, and their taurine is made in Japan. Because it's their cannery they have total control over all ingredients – that's quality control! Lotus canned foods are suitable for all life stages.

Kasiks is made by FirstMate, which we've carried for quite a while. Both brands are made from free-run/cage-free poultry or wild-caught fish, contain no GMOs, and are made in FirstMate's human grade food processing facility in Vancouver, British Columbia. With Kasks and FirstMate you'll not find any of the gums or thickeners commonly found in canned food like carrageenan, guar gum, or xanthan gum. Instead, Kasiks uses pea starch while FirstMate uses potato as a thickener. Both brands are suitable for all life stages of dogs and cats. Kasiks is available in Cage-Free Turkey, Wild Coho Salmon, and Cage-Free Chicken for both dogs and cats.

Skout’s Honor manufactures a family of better, faster, stronger green cleaning solutions to target everyday pet stain and odor problems and ultimately improve the quality of life for pet parents, their households, and the community.

All of their stain removal products are made with Biokore™, which is what makes their products different. Biokore is a non-enzyme, bio-renewable, rapidly biodegradable, and earth friendly aqueous surfactant with all the properties of a powerful solvent! It’s great at cleaning all stains. Combine Biokore with a mineral-based deodorizer and a plant-based fragrance and you get a modern and powerful green cleaning solution without sacrificing safety or environmental responsibility in the process. And, because their products are not enzyme-based, they won’t expire — so you can always have some on hand for immediate use!

For pet messes try the Patio Cleaner & Deodorizer — ideal for those commonly marked outdoor areas. Indoor doggie accidents can be cleaned up with Urine Destroyer. while Cat Urine & Odor Destroyer fixes all those unpleasant things kitty might do. If your cleaning needs are caused by the whole household, then Stain & Odor Remover may be for you. In addition to the usual pet stains, it can also clean and remove blood, mud, grease, and wine!

And let's not forget air cleaning. Oftentimes our cars can smell a bit doggie, or maybe the cat litter isn't controlling the odor. Odor Eliminator and Litter Box Deodorizer safely cleans the air, eliminating those problems too.

Dental care for our dogs and cats are a challenge for most of us, but ProDen PlaqueOff has a variety of products designed to help our furry friends keep their pearly whites healthy. All of their products are made with a specially selected alga, Ascophyllum nodosum, which is harvested along the North Atlantic coast. For chewers try the Dental Care Bones – choose from Vegetable Fusion, Turkey & Cranberry, Bacon, or Chicken. If your dog isn't a good chewer (maybe he's a gulper) or if you have a really little dog or cat try the Dental Bites, they're a crunchy treat. If neither the dental chews or treat bites are right for your pal, PlaqueOff Powder might be ideal – just sprinkle it over your pet's food.

Sunscreen suitable for dogs can be difficult to find because it also must be safe to ingest and still hopefully stay put. Made in the USA, My Dog Nose It! Is a natural, safe, and water resistant sun protection for your best friend. Can be applied to the tummy and ears as well as the nose.
