Welcome to Tree Hugging Pets!

So, what is Tree Hugging Pets, you might ask? This website is your one-stop source for all "green, natural, eco-friendly" pet products, including food, treats, toys, beds and more.

When my 10 year old cat Stormy (pictured left) started to get sick in May 2008, I started doing research online about pet foods and treats that we give our furry family members every day. I was horrified to find out what was in most of the regular name brand foods that are sold at the local grocery store. But it was also difficult to figure out what good stuff to feed and where to find it. There was so much information scattered from one website to the next. And keeping track of it all was difficult to do.

We lost Stormy to brain cancer on June 25, 2008. A week earlier, we took in a stray cat who setup  Read More......

barkwheats dog biscuits

barkwheats dog biscuits

During the last BarkHunt event, we won a great prize from @barkwheats. A box of Seaveg & Chamomile biscuits and a box of Ginger & Parsley biscuits. I have to admit that I wasn't expecting two boxes of treats. One would have definitely been enough but to get two! Woooooohoooo!

So, before getting these, I hadn't really checked out barkwheats at all. If you've never heard of them, I would highly encourage you to take a look at their site and read what they are all about. Yeah, they make all-natural buckwheat dog biscuits which is awesome. But they also choose to get 95%of their ingredients from local farmers. And after all the yummy dog biscuits have been devoured (and they surely will be!) you can throw the packaging right into your composter. I don't know if I could love barkwheats  Read More......

ARM & HAMMER® Essentials™ Clumping Cat Litter

ARM & HAMMER® Essentials™ Clumping Cat Litter

So you really won't believe it.

Over the past month we're been trying ARM & HAMMER ® Essentials™ Clumping Cat Litter with Windy, Misty and Twister. I have two large size litter boxes that they all share – we have some pretty big kitties in this house so I regularly clean out the boxes so it's nice and tidy for them. I had been using Swheat Scoop for awhile and really liked it. Little did I know, I could do better.

Advantages:

  • much lighter than other cat litters
  • pleasing odor and no dust
  • biodegradable
  • took less time to clean out the litter box because the clumping is superb – not a lot of "risidual" fall off if you know what I mean
  • made from all natural – made corn fibers
  • easier to find locally (at least for me, but I don't leave in a major city)
  • cat's had no issues with the  Read More......

Wait up, did someone say Bully Sticks?

Wait up, did someone say Bully Sticks?

A few weeks ago we were lucky enough to snatch up a few best bully sticks from @bestbullysticks.

Have you never heard of a Bully Stick? I didn't know about them until I was looking for all-natural, healthy treats for the boys. And I was a little surprised to find out that a better alternative to raw hide was a bull's penis. I mean, really? Oh yes, really.

Also known as pizzle sticks, beef pizzles and steer sticks, bully sticks are made out of one thing: beef penis

PENIS!

After I got over the fact that my dogs would be gnawing on some bull penis on my hardwood floors, I placed my first order. Both dogs flipped over them, just like a lot of the pet parents described on the dogster.com forums. I couldn't believe how happy they were.

So when I had the chance to grab some more from  Read More......

Swheat Scoop Cat Litter

Swheat Scoop Cat Litter

I found Swheat Scoop Cat Litter last year and fell in love with it immediately. I wanted something that was all-natural, with no chemicals and low on the dust factor. Every time I would clean our old clay based cat litter pan, I would cough from the dust and feel all grimy and dirty. It also made me think about our cats and what they were inhaling multiple times a day.

Swheat Scoop Cat Litter is "made from naturally processed wheat, which means it's clay free, chemical free, fragrance free and biodegradable." Plus it's 100% sewer and septic safe.

I was doubtful at first. I had been a long time clay litter user and wasn't sure how well this "wheat" litter would clump. Clumping is pretty important when you want to keep a clean and odor-free litter pan.

I was delighted to find out  Read More......
