Ran Out of Dog Food, What Can I Feed My Dog?

One night I was home alone with two very hungry 70 pound boxers. I hurried to the pantry to find we were completely out of dry dog food and canned food. This got me thinking about the right kinds of foods to feed pups in a pinch – let’s say you’re out of food and unable to get to the store, out of money, out of town, traveling, camping, or worse, displaced by a disaster of some kind. Dogs still have to eat, right? So what do you do when there’s no dog food to be found…

Pet Insurance Quotes: Compare Different Breeds And Ages

Dog Breeds

Our team worked hard to secure insurance quotes for many different types of pets, breeds and ages and have reported them here in comparison tables.

Lastly, we encourage you to obtain quotes from the top pet insurance companies to give you an idea of what your monthly premiums would be through each.

Best Dog Water Bottle: No Waste, No Mess & No Bowl Required

You’re out for a walk and take a break to give your dog some water. You’re probably one of two people. If you’re the first person, you uncap your shared water, attempt to form a bowl with your hands and try to get him to drink as much of it as possible before it all drips through the cracks. If you’re the second person, you’re lugging around a bowl with you, pour some water into it, and she drinks about half of it resulting in you tossing the remainder. An easier alternative would be to bring your dog its own water bottle with a bowl built in. Your dog will drink more water and less will go on the ground. No wasted water, no mess and no extra bowl needed…
