Why feed raw? Here are just a few reasons.

  • A raw diet heals 9 out of 10 health complaints. One of the biggest problems pet owners face is allergies. Feeding a raw diet will generally put an end to dog and cat allergies including incessant paw licking, hot spots, heavy shedding, intermittent diarrhea, ear infections, cracked and dry nose, paws and skin and blocked anal glands.
  • No more obnoxious gas. One of the biggest benefits is that cat & dog gas is no longer a problem period!
  • Increased energy and vitality. Most dogs and cats even obtain their ideal weight completely naturally, without any expensive prescription “diets”. These results are visible within 1 to 2 months of switching to a raw diet.
  • Feeding raw meat, raw vegetables and raw bones gets the cleanest teeth you can imagine – and it normally takes only 3 to 4 weeks, even in bad cases.
  • Cats are obligate carnivores. In order to thrive, cats must eat the tissue of other animals. Why is this? Cats evolved eating almost not carbs and they they have only one enzyme system that can handle it, as opposed to humans and dogs. While dogs have developed a slight ability to break down and use carbohydrates, cats are obligate carnivores and have no use for carbohydrates whatsoever.

While there are plenty of other great reasons to incorporate raw elements into your pet’s feeding regimen, it is important to do your homework prior to making the switch. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding feeding a raw diet to your pet.

 

CBD Hemp Oil for Pets

CBD Hemp Oil for Pets is now available at Argos Pet Food & Supply stores in Cincinnati, OH.

CBD Hemp Oil for Pets is HERE! Does your pet have Cancer, Anxiety, Seizures, Arthritis, Chronic Pain, Gastrointestinal Issues or Loss of Appetite? CBD Hemp Oil can help to manage these problems and our customers are THRILLED with the results they are seeing.

What is CBD Oil? CBD (cannabidiol) is a compound found in cannabis and hemp. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) can also be found in cannabis and it’s this compound that gives marijuana its psychoactive properties. Most CBD oils are just that … the beneficial CBD without the THC. And they typically come from hemp, not marijuana. In short, your dog won’t get “high” from CBD oil … he’ll get the relaxation without the intoxication.

Is CBD Oil Safe? With so many studies showing the health benefits of CBD, the most encouraging result is that CBD appears to be safe, even when taken in high doses and over extended periods of time. It can decrease the activity of liver enzymes used to metabolize many prescription drugs, so if your dog is on medication, you might want to check with your holistic vet before using CBD.

What brand of CBD Hemp Oil are you selling? After a great deal of research, we are most impressed by the the products offered by Pet Releaf. All Pet Releaf products are made with organic, whole food, human grade ingredients. Each ingredient is specifically chosen for its individual nutritional benefits. All of their products are submitted for testing by independent 3rd party laboratories to ensure 100% safety and efficacy for you and your pets. Additionally, Pet Releaf’s products are:

  • Their own proprietary organic hemp strain, PR-33
  • Non-GMO (non genetically modified organisms).
  • Full spectrum certified USDA organic hemp grown at the largest USDA certified hemp farm in the United States
  • Extracted by super critical CO2 method
  • Derived from the entire plant

 

Pet Releaf products are now available at both Argos locations. Learn more at www.petreleaf.com.

Adoptable Kitties at Argos Pet Food & Supply

A true cat lover will fall in love with Earl’s quirky and… well, unusual personality. Both intelligent & mischievous, his antics are a regular topic of conversation at our store.

Argos Pet Food & Supply regularly fosters and finds forever homes for multiple cats & kittens (and sometimes even a dog) at their Argos, East Walnut Hills store on Woodburn Avenue.

If you are looking for a cat to add to your home, or simply get your daily cat fix, you are coming to the right place. Our adoptable cats are not in cages, but rather have free reign within our store. We feel that this allows the cats to become incredibly well-socialized and highly adoptable. Our cats are exposed to loud city noises, constant activity and a LOT of visitors, including big dogs, little dogs, children, babies. The extensive amount of interaction that they have with each other and with the public allows our cats to develop social skills and an increased amount of confidence.

Potential adopters are able to learn a lot about each of our cat’s personalities and character traits. This is extremely useful because it allows for a smoother transition process into their new home.

All of our adoptable cats have been spayed/neutered, are up-to-date on vaccines and are micro-chipped. Upon adoption, cats will receive one complimentary vet follow-up visit at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital. Adoption fees are $50.

If you are interested in adopting any of our wonderful cats, please fill out an adoption application. Adoption applications will be approved or rejected within 24 hours of being received.

The Honest Kitchen’s NEW Single Serve Cups

The Honest Kitchen introduces 3 oz. single serve cups of dog food. Now you can trade up from heavy cans to lightweight cups of Honest Kitchen’s 100% human-grade dog food that is literally good enough to eat!

How do The Honest Kitchen’s single serve cups of dog food work? 

Simply mix one cup of food with warm water, stir it well and wait 3 minutes for the food to hydrate. Now it’s ready to serve! Each cup makes 12 ounces of food, which is approximately the same amount contained within a can of pet food. 

What’s in the cup?

Each cup contains 3 ounces of grain-free dehydrated food. Preserving food by dehydration is one of the oldest and most efficient methods of food processing. The  dehydration process gently removes the moisture from whole food ingredients, but still maintains all of the nice vitamins and minerals that you get by using real fruits, veggies and lean meats. The Honest Kitchen’s cups are all natural, made in the USA, 100% human grade, super healthy, minimally processed, contain no GMO ingredients & nothing from China.

Now available in chicken, turkey and beef recipes, The Honest Kitchen 3 ounce, single serve cups can be picked up at either Argos store location OR you can add them on to your next pet food delivery order.

 

 

Freedom No-Pull Harness

The Freedom Harness Makes Walking Fun! This harness features a patented control loop on the back of the harness, which tightens gently around your dog’s chest to discourage pulling and makes walking your dog an easy, more enjoyable experience for both of you.

freedom-no-pull-harnessKeeps your dog safe! The Freedom no-pull Harness is made with stainless steel hardware and four adjustment points to ensure that it is more than strong enough to hold any size dog, from 14 lbs all the way up to 250+ lbs. The chest strap is lined with Swiss Velvet, which helps prevent rubbing and chaffing sores behind the legs and the straps are all turned out to prevent sores and raw spots along the seams.

Gives you better control! The Freedom Harness also features a structural ring on the front of the harness. Connecting to this ring is Optional but it does allow you to connect to the front and back of the harness simultaneously. The main connection on the back of the harness tightens gently around the chest to discourage pulling behavior, while the connection on the front of the harness allows you to redirect your dog’s attention back to you for training and treats.

The Optional Training Leash allows you to connect to the front and back of the harness simultaneously. Alternatively you can use the training leash to connect to the harness and a collar at the same time, providing additional control points.

2 Hounds Design is the exclusive manufacturer of the Freedom Harness, which is (proudly!) Made in the USA!
