Xylitol is an artificial sweetener that diabetics use frequently.
It's also a very common additive to some things you have around the house.
It can be deadly with our pets. In fact, this unfortunately happened very recently with someone I know.
You already know that chocolate (which can contain xylitol) is bad for your pet and yet we ALL know of dogs that were able to get into some (or a lot)!
It is also in baked goods and other items that pets (dogs especially) like to eat.
For instance, foods like (delicious) peanut butter often contain xylitol.

Pet ownership and pet spending is increasing EXPONENTIALLY!
It's amassed almost $67 billion (Yes, BILLION) in 2016, which was a $6 billion increase in just over a year!
In 2017, it was almost $70 billion!!!!! (*answer "B" on IG post, btw)
Many people complain about vet/health-related expenses and yet...
So...WHAT ARE YOU BUYING?!
I'm genuinely curious.
We know there is a big market for pet toys and pet (believe it or not) clothing, as well as food and supplies.
Many clients and friends are surprised when I discuss things like the benefits of fish oil supplementation (easily obtained from CostCo or Amazon) because they've haven't heard of this.
Under my "store" page there are some "fab finds" and essentials (IMHO) - especially fish oil and a GREAT detangler; if your pet gets any kind of fur tangle - YOU NEED THIS ITEM!
While other parts of the US haven't quite hit a springtime "feel", HERE in Southern California, we most certainly have!
Here are a few TIPS for the season:
Are there any other tips you'd like to make mention?
