It’s Beco! Bowls, scoops, toys & more!

Introducing Beco!  

This wonderful and amazing line of all natural bamboo supplies is made especially for cats and dogs.  This Beco collection is from the United Kingdom and is not widely available here in the United States. These items are 100% biodegradable and will last for years in your home. However, once in the landfill it will begin to break down naturally.

Beco has a full line of cat and dog food bows, litter trays and scoops for cats, and food scoops for those large bags of dry food.  These items are durable, lightweight, easy to clean and come in a variety of colors including: Blue, Green and Natural.  In addition to the line of dishes and scoops, we also carry catnip toys.  These toys are bright, colorful, catnip filled, and very durable.  They are sure to please even the pickiest of kitties!

Cat Bowl

Cat Bowl

The Beco Bowl for cats has a lower rim so that our feline friend’s sensitive whiskers don’t brush up against the sides making dinner time much easier. Many sophisticated cats may refuse to eat out of a metal or plastic bowl but because our bamboo plastic is toxin free they will happily eat out of these bowls.

Cranimals - Our Favorite Natural Daily Supplement

Cranimals – Our Favorite Natural Daily Supplement

Cranimals is our favorite natural daily supplement! At Eco Dogs and Cats, we sprinkle it on our dogs’ and cats’ food every day for a wonderful healthy boost! Even though the dog and cat foods we have are nutritionally adequate, we love adding something extra so we can be comforted knowing we are helping to give our animal companions optimal health!

Cranimals has naturally simple and wholesome ingredients that are so beneficial to the health of our furry friends. All variations contain the base ingredient of certified organic cranberry extract, which helps to keep kidney, bladder and urinary tract in great shape. Cranberry extract contains antibacterial agents: proanthocyanidins (PACs), quinic, and hippuric acid. These reduce bacteria responsible for almost 80% of urinary tract infections and lower incidence of bladder and kidney stones by preventing the formation of calcium/magnesium phosphate crystals.

The Original Cranimals is just that one powerful cranberry ingredient. It can also help with cardiac health, dental health, and the phytochemicals have even shown potential in slowing and improving age-related declines in memory, balance and coordination in dogs and cats! Very Berry also contains organic blueberry extract and organic raspberry extract, whose antioxidants and phytochemicals help with eye health and are anti-carcinogenic, anti-viral and anti-bacterial. Cranimals Gold formula is great for skin allergies and irritations with the addition of brewer’s yeast, Vitamins E and C, Omega 3’s (ALA and DHA from algae). Cranimals Vibe contains the nutrient rich ingredients of dried seaweed meal powder and organic spirulina powder, which are effective in detoxing and reducing inflammation and helping kidney, liver, brain, eye and skin health.

All the Cranimals we sell at Eco Dogs and Cats are purely vegan and whole food supplements. We love that there are no fillers, artificial colors, flavors or artificial preservatives. It’s also nice to know that a percentage of profits go to animal charities, like pet rescue. Each bag is very long lasting. It only takes 1 – 2.5 teaspoons a day depending on the size of your dog or cat. We love Cranimals and we hope you and your furry friends do too!

Protect Black Cats this Halloween

 

Animal abuse certainly is “spooky.” As if black cats don’t have it hard enough because many refuse to adopt them based on their fur color, Halloween can be especially horrific for them. To this day, some use black cats as props and few practice a tradition of sacrificing them on Halloween. Because of this, some shelters refuse to let anyone adopt black cats during the week of Halloween.

We love the tips in this article from PETA on how to protect companion animals on Halloween.

Make sure you keep your furry friends inside in a secure room, and avoid taking them on trick-or-treating trips. Halloween can scare all members of the family!

We wish everyone a safe and fun Halloween this year!

One of a Kind Vegan Ceramic Dishes

 

Who knew that most ceramics aren’t vegan? We certainly didn’t. Most know that bone china contains burned animal bones, but ceramics contain animal parts as well. Many glazes contain bone ash from chickens and horses, for example. At Eco Dogs and Cats, we offer locally made ceramics that are entirely vegan (clay, glaze and tools). They are also nontoxic and lead free, so they are safe for everyone.

We offer these dishes for dogs, cats, and their humans! All one of a kind – chopstick holders, bowls, plates, and saucers.

In this civilization built on the exploitation of nonhuman animals, it seems impossible to free ourselves from possessions that involved cruelty somewhere down the line. Tires, pharmaceuticals, batteries, glue – we’re surrounded by products made from parts of animals. All that matters is that we do our best to not inflict harm on others, and to try to change the system that creates speciesist exploitation in the first place. We can talk about it over a delicious vegan meal using our vegan ceramic dishes!

The Only Vegan Cat Treats – Cat Chums – at Eco Dogs and Cats

 

It’s impossible to find vegan cat treats. The only cat treats in stores and online are made with animal ingredients from abused and unnecessarily killed animals. If we don’t need to hurt and kill an animal for the benefit of the animals we share our homes with, why would we? Most cat treats are made with animal by-products, which include grease, blood, feathers, offal, and entire carcasses that are from a variety of sources including animals shelters (source: epa.gov on Meat Rendering Plants). That’s not a treat for anyone involved!

We’re thrilled to announce that we sell the only vegan cat treats available! We purchase Cat Chums from a family owned and operated wholesale business located in our neighboring County, Los Angeles. These homemade treats are baked without artificial ingredients, salt, sugar, meat and meat-by products, chocolate, chemicals or unnecessary fats and oils. We love the simple, easily recognizable ingredients.

There are four different Cat Chums flavors: Cheddar Cheese, Rye, Catnip Cookies, and Low Fat Kitty Treats. Our best sellers at Eco Dogs and Cats are the Cheddar Cheese and Catnip Cookies. The Rye and Low Fat Kitty Treats also contain catnip, which is a sure-fire cat pleaser!

We also carry wonderful Organically Grown Catnip by PetGuard, for an extra fun time for your feline friends. We hope you consider giving vegan treats a try for the furry friends in your family!

Firework Fear Remedies for Dogs and Cats

 

The 4th of July is fast approaching, and the festivities are no fun for our companion animals. With loud noises from partying people and scary fireworks igniting continuously, it must sound like a war is going on all around them! Growing up, I always felt helpless and sad for my dogs. I couldn’t communicate to them that everything was fine. No matter what I did, they were beside themselves, cowering in fear all day and night.

I am so happy to announce that there are natural, holistic remedies to combat that fear and give our furry friends some relief!

homeopet-anxiety-tflnHomePet Anxiety TFLN Thunder Fireworks Loud Noises is made for these sort of occasions. It comes in drops which you can apply directly into the mouth, or add to water if you will be out of the house. It’s great for a day like the 4th, because it may be given every 15 minutes and up to 4 times, if needed, before and after fireworks. We recommend you give at least one dose beforehand, because cats’ and dogs’ sharp hearing picks up these frightful noises before we, as humans, are able to detect them.

spirit-essence-stress-stopper-jackson-galaxySpirit Essence’s Stress Stopper is another remedy perfectly suited for fireworks and loud noises. It also comes with a liquid dropper so you can apply directly in the mouth or in water, like the HomeoPet remedy. Alternatively, you can put a few drops in your hands and apply to the coat. Make sure you tap the bottom of the bottle 5 to 10 times first to activate the properties!

Both remedies are completely natural, safe, and made in the USA. I have seen and heard from many about fantastic results with both of these companies, and have found them to be very effective. We recommend both here at Eco Dogs and Cats.

In addition to using helpful supplements, you can keep your dog or cat in a room with the lights on and windows covered, if possible. Make sure you keep your companion animals safe indoors. You can even put on some music, which may help to distract them. Just remember, loud noises of any kind may be unpleasant for their sensitive ears, even if you’re just turning the tunes up to drown out the outside noise! Try to keep music at a level that won’t be too loud for them.

The Eco Dogs and Cats team wishes you the best of luck comforting your furry companions this 4th of July, and on all noisy occasions! You can leave a reply at the bottom of this post or you can always privately contact us by selecting the Contact Us link at the bottom of the page. We are happy to answer any questions and we love your feedback!
