Deluxe Dog Pet Cat Grooming Brush Product Review

Over the years I’ve owned many different breeds of dogs: two Poodles, one standard and one  miniature, a Springer Spaniel, a Pug (why is it we don’t just say “Pug”, it’s always “a Pug” or “the Pug”) and even though her name was Chloe ultimately it became “Pug.”  I’ve also owned a Boxer and at the moment a mini Labradoodle.

Deluxe Dog Pet Cat Grooming Brush

I write about my many dogs because each breed requires different care and grooming techniques.  Because I’ve owned and shown Poodles I’m well-versed with the time and effort they require if you want to keep their coat longer than the typical  pet-clip.

 

In the past I’ve always used a “pin brush” or” slicker brush” and a comb.

But I’ve since been introduced to a brush that is far superior to its counterparts.  The Deluxe Dog Pet Cat grooming brush by CLD brands

Deluxe Dog Pet Cat Grooming BrushDeluxe Dog Pet Cat Grooming Brush

The Deluxe Dog Pet Cat grooming brush is made of durable wood and metal with a contoured handle for a better grip.  But the biggest difference is in the pins.  The Deluxe Dog Pet Cat grooming brush has less pins with 7/8″ flat bristles whereas the slicker brush pins are extremely tight on an angle and very sharp.  And when I say “sharp” I mean it.  I have punctured my fingers many times so you can image the discomfort your dog must be in every time you brush a sensitive part of his/her body.

Deluxe Dog Pet Cat Grooming Brush
I’ve owned Bella since she was 8 weeks old and immediately began grooming her daily, (okay almost daily).  We have a little three step routine called “brusher time”.  When she hears that command she will jump on the bed (in this case our leather reclining couch) and sit in front of me in position one so I can brush her top knot, front legs and chest.

As you can see she sprawled out and crashed not minding the brush a bit.

Last but not least, “are you ready for position three?”  And so goes our daily bonding time.

 

Bella is 3/4 Poodle so her coat is challenging but after a few grooming sessions with the Deluxe Dog Pet Cat grooming brush I no longer have hair balls floating around the house, her coat is fluffy and shiny and to my astonishment NO MORE MATS.

I would enthusiastically recommend this brush to any pet parent whose animal requires regular grooming.  #cldbrandsdeluxedogcatbrush

Derby The Dog

My Cousin posted this video of Derby the Dog on her Facebook timeline and I couldn’t resist passing this wonderful story on to my readers and fellow animal lovers.  Thanks Cuz

Derby the dog was born with deformed front legs, but 3D printing technology has put a new spring in his step. Tara Anderson, who agreed to foster him, also works in project management at 3D Systems, a company based in Rock Hill, S.C. “I had to try and help this dog,” Anderson said. She got Derby a cart, but it limited his mobility and wasn’t the same as running. So with the help of her team at work, they decided to build Derby prosthetic legs so he could […]

Wag Lifetime Joint Care by Pet Research

“The very best care for your very best friend.”Wag Lifetime Joint Care

Wag Lifetime Joint Care health supplement helps protect your dog’s joints, bones, ligaments and tendons with all natural clinically proven ingredients.

Exclusive offer: get your first bottle of Wag for $29.97

When I was approached to conduct a review of Wag Lifetime Joint Care, by Pet Research let’s just say I was skeptical at best.  We’re currently living several hours from Bella’s vet and we were not going to be back in town anytime soon so I felt performing some due-diligence was a must before giving my pet any new supplement.  So I had a sit down with Google to search for answers or –  more to the point – I was looking for anything that raised red flags. I tried contacting online “free” vet advice, only to find that after you fill in all your credentials (name, email, etc.) they really aren’t free or at least not the ones I came across.

Not finding anything negative about the product I began Bella on the suggested dosage of 1 chewable tablet per day for her weight class for 30 days with a money backed guarantee.  Bella is an 8 year old mini-Labradoodle who was a very active dog, (swimming, daily walks, chasing squirrels and chipmunks in our back yard.)  But about 2 years ago we began to see her energy level drop and chalked it up to aging and canine arthritis.  We were astonished that within 4 days Bella had gotten her “groove back!”  She once again  loves to be chased all around the dog park by other dogs, particularly her new “bestie” a miniature Australian Shepard named Sadie Girl.

All skepticism aside, I was thrilled with the results and here’s why. (courtesy of Pet Research)

  • All-natural
  • Clinically proven to work
  • Fast-acting
  • Safe
  • Effective on dogs of all breeds, sizes, and ages
  • Wag’s “superstar” ingredient NEM® received the Frost and Sullivan 2011 North American Dietary Supplements for Joint Health New Product Innovation of the Year Award.
  • Manufactured in the USA

What does Wag Consist of?

  • NEM® (Natural Eggshell Membrane)-325mg
  • Microminzyme™ (Microingredient Complex)-350mg
  • C3 Reduct® (Curcumin from turmeric)-100mg
  • Boswellia Serrata-300mg

In closing, I was genuinely pleased that the product stood up to all its claims particularly the rapid results. As a military veteran, I’m glad to see the product produced in the USA as that also gives me, the consumer, increased peace of mind.  I feel like I have my peppy puppy back.  I better dust the cobwebs off my running shoes because Bella Boo is back!

I have been very pleased with the results but urge anyone considering using supplements to check with their vet.  I have no medical training and make no clinical claims about this product. #wag

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cabbage Roll

A cabbage roll (also known as stuffed cabbage or pigs in a blanket) is a dish consisting of cooked cabbage leaves wrapped around a variety of fillings. It is common to the ethnic cuisines of the Balkans, Central, Northern, and Eastern Europe, as well as the Middle East.

In Europe, the filling is traditionally based around meat, often beef, lamb, or pork and is seasoned with garlic, onion, and spices. Grains such as rice and barley, eggs, mushrooms, and vegetables are often included. Pickled cabbage leaves are often used for wrapping, particularly in Southeastern Europe. In Asia, seafoods, tofu, and shiitake mushroom may also be used. Chinese cabbage is often used as a wrapping.

Cabbage leaves are stuffed with the filling which are then baked, simmered, or steamed in a covered pot and generally eaten warm, often accompanied with a sauce. The sauce varies widely by cuisine. Always in Sweden and sometimes in Finland, stuffed cabbage is served with lingonberry jam, which is both sweet and tart. In Eastern Europe, tomato-based sauces or plain sour cream are typical. In Lebanon, it is a popular plate, where the cabbage is stuffed with rice and minced meat and only rolled to the size of cigar. It is usually served with a side of yogurt and a type of lemon and olive oil vinaigrette seasoned with garlic and dried mint.

Popular among European Jews, and traditionally served on Simchat Torah, stuffed cabbage is described by Gil Marks to have entered Jewish cooking some 2,000 years ago.[1] Recipes vary among Jewish communities depending on region; Romanians and northern Poles prefer a savory sauce, while Jews from Galicia and Ukraine favor sweet-and-sour, for example.[2]
