Wednesday Goodies (#ChewyInfluencer)

Yesterday, the kitties shared their thoughts on a new food they tried out as part of's Blogger Outreach Program. Today, it's pup Astrid's turn.

Astrid tested out NaturVetⓇ Aller-911™ Allergy Aid soft chews. Not only did these chewy treats look like something pup Astrid might enjoy snacking on, but this girl also could use any help she can get for her allergies. Astrid has a lifelong history of seasonal airborne allergies. She is lucky enough to have never suffered from allergies to foods or medications, but certain times of the year, especially spring and autumn, she is a bit of a mess. She takes diphenhydramine to help alleviate her symptoms, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to try these treats as well, to see if they help give her any additional relief.

These NaturVetⓇ Aller-911™ treats contain antioxidants to help support a healthy immune system. They are also, of course, formulated to help combat allergies and the symptoms that result. In order to do so, the treats contain ingredients such as omega-3 fatty acids, DHA, and EPA.

On to the taste test, though. As per usual, my foodie photo shoot attracted a bit of an audience.

I didn't make Astrid wait long for her goodies. The thing is, though, that I only got one, incredibly low quality shot of her taste test. See?

You may or may not be able to tell there, but Astrid indeed thoroughly enjoys the NaturVetⓇ Aller-911™ Allergy Aid treats. The instructions on the container indicate that a dog Astrid's size is to receive six treats per day, three in the morning and three in the evening. On this regimen, have we noticed a change in Astrid's scratching and other allergy symptoms? To be honest, not really. They have neither worsened nor improved on the treats as far as I can tell. Nevertheless, Astrid sure does enjoy the treats, so that's a definite plus.

Wishing all of you friends of ours a tasty, allergy-free Wednesday!

Our Doodle of the Day:

Our Tip of the Day:

Today is the last tip in our disaster preparedness series, and it is one that we have repeated many times, on many different occasions. This tip is to always ensure that your furbaby has some form of identification. In the unfortunate event that your furbaby becomes separated from you in any form of disaster or emergency, some form of identification could more easily bring them back to you. A collar with an ID tag as well as a microchip are the most common forms of ID for our kitties or pups. In addition to ensuring this identification is on your cat or dog, also make sure that the information is up-to-date. If you have moved addresses or changed phone numbers, for example, make sure this is reflected on your furbaby's identification. No one ever wants to consider being separated from their kitty or pup, but should this happen in an emergency or any event, your furbaby is more likely to find their way back to you if they are wearing some form of identification.

Oh those treats sound perfect for you Astrid. They sound like good stuff and it sure looks like you enjoy them too. You all have a great day.

I am glad Astrid liked them. Maybe they take a while to work. Very cute drawing and excellent tips.

Got to believe that something like this would need weeks to show any difference, plus constant use! Allergies are sneaky things, and always take time to figure out. Cute doodle!

Pam and Teddy said...

Love the doodle - and I agree that maybe it will take a while for those treats to have any effect on dear Astrid's allergies. At least she LIKES them!

Hugs, Teddy

I'll be interested in learning if you notice any change going forward. Maybe they take awhile to build up in her system. Ruby also has seasonal allergies.

That sounds interesting! Oh well, at least you can say the treats are for medicinal reasons! Maybe it just takes time...

Sometimes supplements that work to make your immune system stronger so it works better can take a month or two to show results. That’s the problem, most people and pets don’t really have time to wait like that to see if it helps.

Those look like caramels. TW suggested something to her friend for her woofies allergies and ear infections which she said is working great. It's called Tummy Works and Chewy has it.

Well, the fact that sweet Astrid loved the treats is a big plus. Allergy supplements for pets ... I never even thought of that, but it makes perfect sense!
