Unless you have the great pleasure of filing quarterly taxes, it’s quite possible that the start of the 4th Quarter of 2016 has sneaked right on by without you noticing.

If you’re not currently receiving auto-delivery service and would like a Smiley Dog calendar sooner rather than later, just ask when you place your next order.
Your subscriber offer this month is a bit different this time around. Keep reading to see how you can save a bit more on this month’s Featured Items.

Coconut Oil: Friend or Foe?
I first became aware of coconut as a kid when Dad let me taste one of his precious Mounds bars. When I finally got to experience the exhilarating flavor of fresh coconut many years later, I had no idea it was destined to become a controversial “health food.”
Coconut is a staple in diets of many cultures. It is a versatile fruit which lends itself to many uses other than food. Let’s take a look at some of the health benefits of coconut meat and oil that are now becoming of interest to pet parents. Read more…
Healing Ministry for Animals
A while back I had the pleasure of meeting with Dr. Nels Rasmussen, DC, founder of the Healing Ministry for Animals. His mission is to help pets in pain or paralyzed pets regain health and mobility without drugs or surgery. Many of his patients arrive after exhausting traditional medical approaches.
We recently reconnected when he shared his dream of starting a non-profit, Hope for Paralyzed Pets. Its mission would be to raise public awareness of the new possibilities available for rejuvenation of animals who have exhausted traditional options. It would also offer financial assistance to those who need help to make it possible. This is still in the planning phase. Read more…

FEATURES of the MONTH
Pet Smile Toothpaste– save 20%
A new pet toothpaste developed by the folks behind Super Smile for humans. This unique toothpaste does not require brushing- simply apply to teeth and your pet’s saliva will dissolve and distribute its active ingredient.
This beef-flavored toothpaste can be applied with swabs (sold separately), finger or brush. It is the first toothpaste approved by the Veterinary Oral Health Council. With typical use with a 50 pound dog, one tube will last about 12 months. 4.5 oz tube Regular $24.75, now $19.75
GoBare Treats– save 15%
Pick up one or all of these interesting treats which use Asian Carp as the main ingredient. Asian Carp is an invasive species which is spreading throughout the midwest.
By using the fish in treats, the Asian Carp population is reduced which helps slow the decline of native fish populations in rivers. Asian Carp is high in protein and Omega-3 oils, which helps turn an invasive pest into a healthy treat.
