Bri's Weekly Top Three 9.1.17

Posted by Briana Graber on

Alright, it's finally time for my last top three article, and we've got a few interesting selections to look at today.  

For one, I worked with the brand Herbsmith for the first time this week.  Herbsmith is a brand that crosses traditional theories with modern research.  Their supplements are grounded in Chinese herbal remedies, their herbs picked from the best of their natural environments, and then tested right here in the USA before it's marketed to ensure their products work at their absolute peak.  One in particular I worked with was the Calm Shen, to help tame nervousness, anxiety, and destructive behaviors.  The fact that they post the breakdown of what each ingredient does on their website is both fascinating and helpful.  For instance "Angelica Tang Kuei (dang gui)...Tonifies the blood to nourish the heart without causing stress."

Then, with Halloween right around the corner in October already I enjoyed working with Up Country's Boo! Dog collar.  Up Country has a reputation for quality and the ghosts and pumpkins that dot this collar add just the right adorable touch to the upcoming spooky season.

And speaking of quality, I have yet to hear someone say something bad about fiesta ware quality, regardless of whether it fits their aesthetics.  For me?  I like the bold broad shapes and bright colors.  This pet bowl has a 7.25" diameter and holds 39.25 oz, or just shy of 5 cups for those who might have trouble visualizing amounts in ounces, like myself.  Fiesta ware holds up to the test of time and can make a statement in your kitchen or dining room.

Have a great week and stay safe.

All cats, all the time.  Well, at least this week.  There was quite a few cat products and more than a handful caught my eye, though I tried to pare it down to a more manageable list for this week.First, even though it doesn't seem the most exciting, is a litter box.  Fact is, if [...]

Diverse Dogs and Familiar Felines

Even with cat breeds as distinctive as the sphynx, there's no solid argument that can be made that dog breeds are more diverse.  From coats to size to skeletal structure, there is a far wider range of traits displayed among dogs.  And it is a curious thing to wonder at.  After all, both domesticated cats [...]

The Many Meanings of Meow

All of us are familiar with a cat's meow.  It's on kids toys that distinguish the types of animal sounds, we've heard it from our own cats, cats at a friend's house, or even on internet cat videos.  But fun fact: cat's only really meow at humans, not at each other.  Meows are the cat's [...]

I was a bit surprised to see apricot and kiwi flavored dog treats this week.  It's something expected more of a fruit snacks pack, but after digging into it a bit more there are actually a lot of health benefits that can be had from this coconut based treat.  Coconut alone can "increase energy levels, improve [...]

A clever idea I ran across this week is a water bottle that doubles as a pet dish.  The Gulpy Jr Water Dispenser has a lid that lines up with the bottles side and has a convenient belt clip for when you're not using it, but when Spot needs a drink the lid flips down into [...]

This week I went back to Earth Animal, and their "Brushed on Benefits" treat line.  This time it was the soothe treat that caught my attention, but in general I still just like the concept of this treat.  It goes the extra mile to make sure you're giving the absolute best to your pet.  In the [...]

Reflective leashes are extremely important, especially if you're going to be taking your dog for walks in the evening.  Unfortunately I am not a fan of neon yellow or orange.  Granted, safety comes first but if I have a different color choice, I'm going for it.  This Midlee leash has a silvery gray reflective ribbon sewn [...]

Pet stains are the worst.  Most of the time its an accident, or you didn't realize they needed to be let out that badly, but cleaning pet urine out of carpet and clothes always leaves a stain and sometimes an odor.  It's not pleasant or fun, and then all you can think about is how [...]

Obligate Carnivores and their Needs

According to Britannica, obligate carnivores "cannot obtain all the nutrients that they need from the plant kingdom and bacteria.  In particular, obligate carnivores lack the enzyme needed to split carotene obtained from plants, into vitamin A."  They are animals who's digestive system can't handle digesting only plants for nutrients.  Cats are one of the prime examples, [...]
