I don't blog just for free products

Contrary to what non-bloggers think, Most of us that blog do not do it for free products.
 I  blog because I want to know what the best products that are out there and to do that I ask companies for things either for little or no cost and maybe a contest as a perk.   
I'm like you I want to give my furkid the best  and I do research and ask  questions and look for reviews from other pet guardians, but I am more of a hands on person, I need to see, feel and have an actual physical product in my hand  to see how well it holds up and is it suitable to fit the needs of both my furkid and myself. I will review anything pet related and give my honest thoughts, yes getting a product sent to me is a perk and I appreciate it, but I'm not doing this just to get free stuff. I want to be able to inform others out there what is the best for their particular needs when it comes to taking care of their furry family.

Smart Pet Tag Review Pet Fetch

Did you know  The American Humane Association estimates over 10 million dogs and cats are lost or stolen in the U.S. every year?  One in three pets will become lost at some point during their life.

I would be devasted if my furkids were ever lost, they are part of my family and  I love them just as much as  I do my human kids.  Veterinarians  do recommend getting your furkid  micro-chipped, yes that is an excellent idea, but for some, it can be  unaffordable and   then alternative methods are used  to keep an identification on their furkids,

We have all seen the kiosk engravers in the mall or your local store, but are they really efficient? I'm not in no way discouraging   anyone not to get micro-chipping done or a pet ID tag, I would, however, like to introduce to you Pet Fetch Smart ID Tag this unique emoji tag comes with a pre-engraved number that you register online and with a few simple steps your ID number is registered along with your name, address, and phone number .

In the event that your cat or dog becomes lost, all the person who found them has to do is go to Pet Fetch input the number and you get an email notification and  just knowing  that is peace of mind for me.  I just love these tags, they are so modern and fun for your furkid to wear 

Each Emoji Tag  is light weight and very detailed

How our dog helped with low blood sugar

We all know that dogs are amazing and have been trained to detect cancer, seek out drugs and even find someone that has passed away. But what if you get a dog that did not have any training and by chance, she comes into your life and knows and senses something is not quite right? Ariel came into our lives four years ago and by then my husband had already been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes,But still to no avail did we have it under control and we went back and forth with the insurance company to get him an affordable insulin, with several trial errors with his medication and bad readings with a glucose meter, we went through several of those before we found the right one that was easy to use and to understand. One day Hubby was shaking, feeling light-headed and dizzy and Ariel not understanding what was going on jumped up in his lap and started to lick his hands and arms, I went over to move her and she gave me a look to help him , I went to get his glucose meter and prepped his finger to prick it for the test and nothing would come out, I tried finger number 2 and I got enough out to get a reading ,his blood sugar level was 20, I immediately got on the phone with the Dr and told him what was going on, He suggested that I get him some orange juice and glucose tabs.during this time not once did Ariel leave his side and she continued with the licking until I checked his glucose levels again and they increased. So from now on when she starts paying extra attention to him I know that something is not quite right, Now we have him on insulin and his medication has been straightened out but not always a guarantee to keep his glucose levels from either spiking too high or dropping too low.I check his levels 3 times a day and they are consistent most of the but there are days that it is off. He gets so much love and devotion from Ariel she is a life saver.
