Yes, it is April Fool’s Day but your offer this month is no joke. Your cost of The Dog Food Detective can be refunded for you or a friend this month.
We had considered writing a report on our continued use of drones which do not require FAA approval, but thought we’d hold off on that update. Our drones can handle up to 80 pounds in a single delivery. Since they can be safely programmed for single or multiple deliveries, weight is never a limiting factor. Smiley Dog currently operates two redundant drones which use proven, safe operating systems. Each integrates true organic intelligence with legacy navigation and fulfillment controls to quickly adapt to changing needs. Best of all, response to voice commands are instantaneous, and they continually remain within visual sight of their operators. To learn more about the Class “C” and Class “M” drones currently in use, contact Craig.
We also didn’t include an update of the latest industry acquisition which has Smucker’s becoming one of the largest players in the pet industry because that almost seems like too much of a joke as well.

Pet Allergies, Sensitivities and Assessments
Last year we wrote about the Healthy Dog and Cat Alternative Sensitivity Assessment from Glacier Peak Holistics. Last month, testing began and the process and interactions with the company have been both simple and encouraging.
The kit arrived within a few days of ordering. You won’t find a slick clamshell package. Instead a simple, clear ziplock bag contains instructions, a sample Result Report, information sheet and the simple supplies which you’ll use to gather your pet’s samples. Read more…
Primal Pet Feline Turkey Recall
Last month Primal Pet Food announced the recall of a single production batch of its 3 pound Feline Turkey frozen raw formula.
The affected batch has a “Best By” date of 060815 B22. Read more…
Alternate Allergy Testing: The Next Step
Earlier you read about the first steps of our testing using the Glacier Peak Holistics Healthy Dog and Cat Alternative Sensitivity Assessment kit.
Rather than evaluate a single set of results just for Ginger, we are following another client’s process as well. Results for both her dog, Roscoe, and Ginger were received within 2 weeks of submitting samples.
Not surprisingly, the test results came back showing significant differences in triggers and suggested approach. Read more…

Glacier Peak Holistics Supplements
Glacier Peak Holistics supplements are organic, herbal remedies which address common food or environmental sensitivities and triggers many pets face. The Glacier Peak Holistics supplement line includes:
A daily nutritional supplement formulated to provide ongoing support to the immune system. This herbal blend acts as a natural defense against parasites by making the digestive tract an unfriendly environment for pests. Contains Astragalus (immune system booster), Dandelion (organ and blood cleanser), Kelp (thyroid support), Nettles (detoxification) and Diatomaceous Earth (parasite control).
An organic herbal blend formulated to rebuild the immune system. An ideal supplement for use during seasonal changes, times of stress or to assist recovery following surgery. Peak Immune is intended to be used as a quarterly regimen or to address sensitivities identified through the GPH Alternative Allergy Assessment kit. Available in powder, capsule or tincture forms.
A blend of organic herbs to control virus, fungus, bacteria and parasites which can often result in chronic ear infections, hair loss, irritated skin and foot chewing. The tincture contains Olive Leaf (antibiotic), Pau d’Arco (antiseptic, anti-inflammatory), Nigella Sativa (organ support and digestive aid) in an alcohol base. Recommended when GPH Alternative Allergy Assesment results show Yeast, Bacteria, Fungus or Immune concerns.
We all know that human aspirin or aspirin substitutes (particularly acetaminophen) should not be given to dogs. GPH Herbal Aspirin offers gentle and safe alternative pain relief for dogs without the worry of overdose or toxicity effects.
Herbal Aspirin contains Feverfew (pain relief), White Willow (anti-fever and inflammatory), Skullcap (mild sedative), and Valerian (stress relief). Available in powder, capsule or tincture forms. Senior dogs or those with joint pain can use Herbal Aspirin in combination with Inflapotion for senior dogs and joint pain. Not recommended for cats or kittens.
Formulated to provide relief from the discomfort and swelling that accompanies inflammation. A fast acting anti-inflammatory that can provide ongoing relief with no side effects when used regularly. It helps to regenerate and repair damaged tissue rather than mask pain.
Made with Comfrey (tissue repair), Red Clover (toxin removal), Marshmallow Root (diuretic and emollient), Slippery Elm (protective anti-inflammatory) and Echinacea (immune support). Inflapotion can be used safely by both dogs and cats. It is available in powder, capsule or tincture forms.

The sole product in the GPH Supplement line intended for external use only. Mountain Salve is formulated to be used as a topical antibiotic and antifungal ointment.
