A Vote in Time Saves… $Five
It’s that time of year again when the voting begins for the Best of Western Washington. If you haven’t had a chance to vote yet, the contest continues for another few weeks. It was fun to get an early start and see a single digit ranking last week (we were #6!) but we’ve now slipped down into double digits. Wanna play?
This year, you’ll “unlock” a voter deal which saves you $5 on your next delivery order when you vote for Smiley Dog. It’s a “pay $10 get $15” offer which will be emailed to you once you’ve voted. You can share this deal with your friends and spread the word about Smiley Dog at the same time. Read more…
Bravo Issues Limited Recall on Chicken and Turkey Blends
Bravo Pet Foods has issued a limited recall of selected raw Chicken and Turkey formulas of its products. The affected items are 2 pound, 5 pound packages of Chicken Blend and Turkey Blend foods.
The recall is being issued following the discovery that samples from two lots of these formulas tested positive for Salmonella during routine testing by the Nebraska Department of Agriculture. The testing was not confirmed with samples from the same batch done by an independent third party lab. Read more…
Latest Round of Price Adjustments
Some unexpected price adjustments appeared earlier this month, with a few changes slightly higher than usual. While there was a minimal adjustment on canned food pricing from Precise, the change in some dry formula pricing was a bit steeper.
Merrick, Nature’s Variety and some Primal formulas also have had some adjustments over the past few months. Natural Balance has made small adjustments despite the transition from 28 pound to 26 pound bags. Read more…

New Products and Info at Supplier Show
Last month we had the good fortune to attend the first-ever Open House hosted by one of our favorite suppliers. This family-owned business is one of the few independent suppliers remaining in the area.
It was a good excuse to take a quick trip down to Vancouver, WA, paw over some new items and get questions answered by old friends. It turned out to be well worth the day trip, and some new items uncovered will be arriving later this month. Read more…

Wapiti Labs Senior Mobility Trial Pack for Large Dogs
An inexpensive and effective way to sample Wapiti Labs elk velvet antler supplement for joint and mobility support. This trial pack contains 12 tablets of Joint Flexibility and Mobility which is formulated for dogs 50 pounds and larger that have begun to slow down, may be affected by colder or damper weather, or who struggle to climb steps or rise from a sitting or sleeping position. 12 tablets- $6.50
OptaGest is a daily digestive supplement for dogs and cats from In Clover, the makers of our best-selling joint supplement. OptaGest is unique in that it contains the prebiotic inulin as well as digestive enzymes. It does not contain probiotics since these can lose most of their effectiveness as they travel through a pet’s digestive tract.
Prebiotics are the “food” that allow existing probiotics to work their digestive magic. Adding prebiotics to your pet’s diet benefits both the immune and digestive systems by increasing the quantity of good bacteria.
Pets under stress, aging or experiencing difficulty with food transition can benefit from OptaGest. It works quickly, in harmony with your pet’s metabolism, and results are normally seen within 3-5 days. If you think your pet could benefit from the addition of Optagest, ask for a free sample!
Available in 100 gram ($21.75), 300 gram ($44.50) and single serve tubes (10 pack) for traveling ($9.75)
