I often see dogs at the beach or in dog parks on a leash, and I wonder why their owners feel the need to keep them on a 4” or 6” leash, even in a large, restricted area. I also see owners who don’t let their dogs stop to use the bathroom, or pause to smell something interesting or play with another dog. Most of the time, the dogs aren’t even trained to walk on their leash, and you’ll...

Pet Safety
posted by: in Magazine
I’ve been running Neo-Pawstm for almost 20 years now and people still ask me the same question, and that is: “Do pets really need safety/protective gear?” Being in the pet industry as long as I have and given the number of preventable pet injuries I come across in my work, that must be indicative of something.  I would have to answer this question today the same way that I did 20 years ago, and that would be an affirmative. We accept animals...

CANCER AND THE ENVIRONMENT
posted by: in Magazine
Why do we recommend Neo-Paws shoes for your dogs?   The environment influences cancer rates and risks. Cancer is a renegade system of growth inside the human body. The changes that must occur inside for cancer to flourish are genetic changes, but factors outside the body also play a role. Humans do not exist in contaminant-free surroundings. Over a lifetime, a person's internal genetic makeup persistently interacts with external factors. Factors outside the body such as diet, smoking, alcohol use, hormone levels,...

Dog shoes and leg wraps are great for preventing injury or damage that happens when your dog is outside, but there are occasions where they might be injured despite your best efforts. When dogs are injured they tend to lick the wounded area frequently, which can cause irritation that can sometimes make the problem worse. If the injury is on the leg or paw, shoes and wraps are the ideal way to protect the wound, by keeping it covered...

Paw and Leg Protection
posted by: in Magazine
All breeds of dog have very delicate paw pads that can be damaged easily by exposure to heat and cold—like asphalt on a hot day, or snow on a cold one. Most people find walking on burning asphalt or snow to be painful, and it’s painful for your dog, too, even after only a small amount of exposure. In snowy weather there’s another potential problem—the de-icing chemicals that are use on driveways and sidewalks are toxic to animals. These chemicals can...

Coats and Sweaters to Stay Warm and Dry
posted by: in Magazine
Few breeds of dog are truly well-adapted for very cold environments. While some long-haired breeds are extremely well-adapted to the cold, there are many more that don’t do so well in cold weather. Small dogs like the Chihuahua and dachshund, and breeds with low body-fat and thin coats like the greyhound and whippet, are not built to withstand the cold, and they do need extra help staying warm. In fact, most breeds of dog will benefit from a sweater or jacket...

Why do Dogs need Shoes and Safety Apparel?
posted by: in Magazine
Many people—including some dog owners—are unenthusiastic about the idea of clothes designed for dogs, believing that they’re unnecessary and even a little foolish. The truth is, temperature extremes can be even more uncomfortable for dogs than they are for people, so it's important for owners to understand this and invest in the necessary safety apparel. Items like dog shoes and leg wraps are useful for a wide range of reasons, and investing in these items can save you money in the...
