Keep Your Dog Busy, Happy & Safe with Bully Buddy this 4th of July!

Bully Buddy - Happy Fourth of July

This 4th of July will likely be different than past years, but you should still plan for the occasion with your pet’s safety and wellbeing in mind. Noisy fireworks are often stressful for pets, and gatherings with friends and family can create over excitement in some dogs. As you gear up for this year’s 4th of July holiday, be sure to have a Bully Buddy on hand!

Bow Wow Labs, Inc. (BWL), the makers of innovative products to help keep dogs healthy, happy and safe, is best known for Bully Buddy; a one-of-a-kind safety device that allows dogs to enjoy a custom sized bully stick without the hazard of choking.Bully Sticks are one of the most popular dog treats being sold in the USA, but as dogs chew them down, they become a choking hazard.

Bully Buddy is a durable, easy-to-use, veterinarian-vetted, and dog-approved device that tightly secures bully sticks, preventing dogs from choking on the tail-end of the treat. The screw twist technology keeps bully sticks secure, and dogs can really appreciate this feature as opposed to working their paws to keep a loose bully stick in place.

Share the Bully Buddy with your dog during a BBQ or party to help keep them occupied and content. It will also help to prevent or minimize them begging for your burger or stealing a chicken bone from the trash! Providing your dog with a safe room within the home to retreat to once the fireworks begin is a smart idea. Including the Bully Buddy will help to distract them from the scary and loud bangs.

BWL also offers highly nutritious bully sticks which come from grass fed cattle. Both Bully Buddy and Bully Sticks from BWL come in a variety of sizes, perfect for every size dog. Cheers to SAFE snacking and Happy 4th! Learn more: https://bowwowlabs.com/collections

Lyme Disease Concern Among Pet Parents Nationwide

New Study Reveals High Level of Lyme Disease Concern Among Pet Parents

Lyme Disease Concern Among Pet Parents Nationwide

NEW YORK, NY– PetCareRx is announcing the results of its first Spring Tickitude Survey, revealing how pet parents across the country feel about the threat of ticks as well as their lifestyle choices around tick prevention and protection. With over 400 pet parents polled nationwide, the survey reveals that 4 out of 5 pet households are concerned about tick related threats this season, and the pending threat of Lyme disease is top of mind in 64% of pet households around the country.

Tickitude results indicate Lyme disease concern levels vary significantly by region, ranging from a high of 82% of Northeast pet households concerned down to just 33% concerned in Western pet households surveyed. 70% of Midwestern and 60% of Southern pet parents polled are worried about the Lyme disease threat for their pets and human family members. Lyme disease is named after Lyme, Connecticut, where the disease was first discovered, but every state has reported cases of Lyme disease, which is transmitted by deer ticks.

Lyme disease-carrying deer ticks can feed on more than one pet or move from pet to human and infect multiple members of a single household in a short amount of time. Despite elevated Lyme concern levels this season, 2 out of 3 pet households admitted their dogs and cats often spend time on family member beds, a habit which can help ticks travel to other family members. Moreover, families with a history of pet Lyme disease in the household were more likely to have pets in their beds often (85% vs. 64% average). 46% of pet parents reported having had to deal with ticks on their pets, a situation which can be stressful for many. In fact, the survey revealed that 8% of pet parents would rather eat a bowl of their pet’s food than remove a tick from their pet.

Protection Against Lyme Disease Is Available
There are many ways to prevent ticks from attaching to cats and dogs. Topical treatments, also known as spot ons, are the most popular option among those polled, with 85% of pet parents who use tick protection favoring this monthly format and just 3% opting for a collar. 72% said effectiveness was the most important consideration in choosing a flea and tick protection while only 20% said cost was the most important factor.

In addition to fielding the first Tickitude study, PetCareRx is supporting awareness of Lyme disease risks and prevention through its special coverage in Lyme disease articles and Wet Nose Press blog and distribution of pet flea and tick prevention products available in the PetCareRx Flea and Tick Shop.
