There is nothing like knowing your pet is at home safe.  But did you know that more than 500k pets are impacted by house fires every year?  Smoke Alarm Monitoring is the only battery powered smoke dector that is also monitored 24/7 by emergency operators.  Since your pets cannot dial 911 when you’re not home, and every second counts in the event of a fire.  If smoke is detected in the house, their central station operators will call and text everyone on the emergency list.  If it’s not a false alarm, we dispatch the fire department.  Giving the gift of safety this holiday season will make you enjoy the holidays even more knowing your family and pets are safe while at home.  Get 50% off your SAM smart doctor using the promo code ‘woof’ at check out.  Go to SmokeAlarmMonitoring.com.

If you have a dog that is a little hyper, may get nervous or just over zealous with all the holiday activity.  I always say, a good long walk to help tire out that pup helps, but some dogs can just be very excited with new people coming and going.  A go to for me, for my own dog, is Zuke’s Calming Treats.  It’s just enough to take the edge off – not to make him sleepy or out of it.  Made with Passionflower, L-Theanine, Chamomile, Hawthorn Berry, Valerian for the active ingredients, they come in Chicken or Peanut Butter formula.  Sold in most pet retail stores – and something you can have on hand for your own during the holidays.  Click here to see the full list of ingredients and if you are unsure, you can always ask your veterinarian.  


Have a favorite pet professional in your life that you just don’t know what to get them?  A Lifetime Membership –  American Pet Professionals is the purrfect gift for any pet pro!  A Lifetime Membership gift will give your favorite pet pro access to the exclusive organization with incredible benefits including:
