As Tripawds Spokesdog, Wyatt wants you to know how much he loves these tasty, all natural meat treats for dogs. He has good reason: Jones is a family run business that only produces USA meat products from beef, chicken, lamb, pork, rabbit and venison.

In fact, Wyatt is so happy about his gigantic dog stocking stuffer that he wants your canine pals to experience Jones’ delicious single ingredient treats too.

Ring in the Season with Jones Stocking Stuffer Dog Treats!

We’ve always loved Jones Natural Chews healthy dog treats. When Wyatt was younger with a very sensitive belly, the only treats we knew for sure that he could enjoy without a GI payback were Jones’ Bare Bones, a great healthy dog treat for pups who can’t eat raw human-grade meat bones.

Now that he’s got a more stable belly, Wyatt can enjoy all that Jones has to offer, like this new irresistible holiday line of stocking stuffer dog chews!

Christmas Wooferman Treats

These Christmas Wooferman can’t run fast enough for dogs who get a whiff! But the best part is they’re not sugary cookies, they’re all natural dog treats made with oven baked 100% USA all natural beef and NO ARTIFICIAL INGREDIENTS!

The Holiday Box Dino Bone

It’s so big you’ll think it came from a dinosaur! Wyatt loves his 4 pound smoked beef bone (also in 2-pound size). This colossal 100% grown and made in the USA treat ensures good dental health for dogs while entertaining for hours. Yes, it’s a little messy but Wyatt says that’s what makes it even better!

Rocky’s Rollers

Your dog will roll over all season long for these soft, flexible sausage links!

Three Ways to Help Your Dog Fight Cancer

November 16th, 2015 · 2 Comments · Supplements

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Are you coping with dog cancer? If so, take a deep breath and remember that no matter what the prognosis, you can do something to help your dog fight cancer with three easy, uncomplicated and convenient steps.

K9 Immunity, coupon, dogs, cancer, osteosarcoma, tripawd

This post is sponsored by K9 Medicinals. We are being compensated for helping to create awareness about K9 Medicinals’ dog cancer treatments, but Tripawds only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. K9 Medicinals is not responsible for the content of this article.

Step 1: Take a Full Spectrum Approach

First, keep an open mind about different dog cancer therapies. Conventional veterinary cancer oncology and holistic treatments each have valuable benefits that increase your dog’s odds of beating cancer, so don’t rule either one out. In fact, the most forward-thinking dog cancer specialists will tell you that it takes a multi-faceted approach to control and ultimately work toward eradicating the cancer.

Dog Cancer Guide Book

One tool that thousands of pets and people have experienced success with is the use of medicinal mushrooms. When it comes to clinically proven immune boosting supplements that do no harm, mushroom therapy ranks high on many veterinary cancer specialists’ lists.

Step 2: Strengthen Your Dog’s Immune System

Cancer attacks the body’s immune system in order to grow. The next big step you can take to stop it is to boost your dog’s immunity so that it can recognize, destroy and work toward preventing cancer cells from overtaking the body. You can help do this with the power of medicinal mushrooms.

Ganoderma Reishi Medicinal Mushroom

Medicinal mushroom ganoderma reisshi

Both humans and dog cancer patients have experienced the power of medicinal mushrooms for decades. They’ve been well-studied for their anti-cancer, anti-tumor, immune regulating beta-glucans compounds. Some types you may be familiar with include shitake, but less common medicinal mushrooms include coriolus, agaricus and cordyceps.

“And I found they work. They extend life, slow progression, and keep life quality high in dog cancer patients beyond traditional care expectations,” says dog cancer vet Dr. Dressler.

When consumed in measured quantities, these fungi:

  • Strengthen and stimulate the immune system
  • Give the body more energy to fight cancer
  • Help dogs rebound from the effects of chemotherapy.

But no matter how great of a chef you might be, your dog doesn’t want to eat heaps of mushrooms every day. So how do you get the power of medicinal mushrooms into your dog’s diet? That’s easy: K9 Immunity Plus™, a one-step, clinically proven, holistic way to fight cancer without the risk of side effects.

Step 3: Treat your dog to K9 Immunity Plus™

Feeding foods with strong aromas and flavors are one of the best ways to perk up a dog’s appetite during cancer treatments. That’s why the folks at K9 Medicinals put the power of medicinal mushrooms into a single tasty, fish and liver flavored chew – K9 Immunity Plus™.

K9 Immunity Plus coupon

Along with your oncologist’s treatment plan, daily doses of K9 Immunity Plus™ can help improve the odds of keeping cancer away. This soft, tasty wafer is so easy to give! It contains the exact same effective ingredients previously only found in the pill form of K9 Immunity.

With every dose your dog will think he’s being spoiled rotten with treats, but you can feel good knowing that he’s getting an all-in-one trio of support with K9 Immunity™, K9 Transfer Factor™ and K9 Omega™. Every soft chew contains:

  1. K9 Immunity—activates ALL 260 different classes of immune cells
  2. K9 Transfer Factor—maximizes recovery results by enhancing K9 Immunity’s effectiveness
  3. K9 Omega —powerful fish oil to inhibit tumor growth and supports overall health during cancer treatment K9 Immunity Coupon

Over a million dogs have benefited from the power K9 Immunity, including Tripawds Founder Jerry and many other Tripawds members too.

Tasty, Easy and Convenient Medicinal Mushrooms

Pills are no fun for you or your dog, especially if you need to give many. But K9 Immunity Plus soft chews make it easy and tasty to give your pup powerful immune support and although you might not like the strong, fishy aroma of K9 Immunity Plus, your dog most definitely will!

K9 Immunity Coupon

With each bite, you can feel good knowing you’re doing everything possible to help your dog fight cancer – with no known side effects that could compromise quality of life. Ingredients are listed in more detail here.

K9 Immunity Plus soft chews are:

  • Tastier than pills
  • More convenient to give
  • Costs less than buying K9 Immunity, K9 Transfer Factor and K9 Omega separately.

Three Legs, Three States; Powered by #PinnacleHealthyPets

Some pets have a lot of energy to burn. Tripawds Spokesdog Wyatt Ray is one of them. When things are calm, he’s calm. But when life gets crazy, as it has for us the last few weeks, that’s when he goes wild.

Wyatt enjoys Pinnacle while camping

It’s times like this when we make extra sure his diet is up to the challenge. What perfect timing to introduce Pinnacle® Grain Free into his mealtime.

This post is sponsored by Pinnacle and the BlogPaws Professional Pet Blogger Network. We are being compensated for helping create awareness about Pinnacle’s Newly Formulated Grain Free Dog Food, but Tripawds only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. Pinnacle is not responsible for the content of this article.

A few weeks ago when we told you we were giving Pinnacle a try, we were about to hit the road for winter in our RV. Making the switch to Pinnacle’s new grain free, limited ingredient diet was perfect timing. After slowly rotating it into Wyatt’s meals, he was rearin’ to go and so were we.

Since Wyatt’s been on Pinnacle, it’s clear that the quality ingredients in this recipe are doing his belly good. Made with the kind of foods that we’d love to home cook for him but just can’t because of our tiny RV kitchen, we feel good knowing that Wyatt’s getting quality ingredients like Quinoa, Sweet Potato, Pumpkin, Sea kelp, Cottage Cheese in every meal.

Why Pinnacle® Grain-Free?

Pinnacle is made at their own plant in California. We chose to feed it to Wyatt because it has:

  • Natural, healthy recipes that use high quality proteins
  • Antioxidants to support healthy immune system
  • Fiber to encourage healthy digestion and small stool
  • Promotes general joint health and overall muscle tone

Dog food companies make all sorts of claims, but we both know that good marketing can’t hide the result that’s standing right in front of us: our dog. If our dog’s coat is shiny and feels good, his eyes are bright, he has stamina and vitality and his poops are firm and bouncy, you know he’s eating good stuff.

Grain Free, Pinnacle, dog food

“More please!”

After the last few weeks of Wyatt being on Pinnacle, we can say with 100% confidence that Pinnacle is indeed great stuff! Here’s how we can tell:

Since mid-September, Wyatt’s had a ton of adventures that put Pinnacle to the test. For instance, he:

Joined a sled dog team in Colorado.

three legged sled dog German Shepherd Wyatt

Tripawd Wyatt, champion musher dog.

Ok, well he ran with a team of retired musher dogs for a couple of minutes, at 10,000′ feet elevation on a cold, dark night (sled dogs do best when temperatures are icy cold). Now he’s begging us to travel with them to Alaska this winter.

Went on mountain workouts in New Mexico.

“Time to work out Dad!”

Every morning the dynamic duo of Admin Guy and Wyatt hit the trail for a brisk morning workout. Wyatt was unstoppable as he hunted down the scents of coyotes and grazing cattle.

And finally here in the Nevada desert, Wyatt patrols the land.

Come on winter, I know you’re out there!”

He still has plenty of energy to hit the dog park in the morning and take evening walks to patrol the RV park at night, even though the temperatures aren’t as cold as he likes them.

Paws up and hands down, we are impressed with Pinnacle. If you’re looking for a great grain-free dog food we encourage you to give this kibble a try, Pinnacle is worth making the switch.

Pumpkin Pulp Treats for Cat and Dog Weight Loss, Digestion and More!

October 5th, 2015 · 3 Comments · Diet

Now that Fall is in full swing, we can’t help but have pumpkin on our minds. Not only is it a great treat for our pets, but the health benefits of pumpkin for cats and dogs are huge!


  • Pumpkin has tons nearly three grams of healthy fiber per one cup serving. This helps with maintaining firm, bouncy poop.
  • Pumpkin is dual-purpose magic; it’s great for those times when your dog or cat is constipated, like right after amputation surgery. Or, when your pet has runny poop!
  • Pumpkin is nature’s weight loss trick: adding just a tablespoon into your dog or cat’s food helps them to feel fuller, faster.
  • Pumpkin is packed with Vitamin C, which has antioxidants and immune system boosters.

Just add a tablespoon to your dog or cat’s meal. But please don’t feed your pet pumpkin pie. That’s not what we mean. Instead, you want to feed them natural, unsweetened homemade or canned pumpkin pulp.

organic canned pumpkin pulp pets

We know it’s not always convenient to open a can of pumpkin pulp and keep it in the fridge. One thing you can do to avoid waste is too pen a can, spread it into ice cube trays and freeze pumpkin cubes.

Or even better, check out this bagged dehydrated pumpkin pulp mix. We think this Diggin’ Your Dog Firm Up Pumpkin Super Supplement for Digestive Tract Health is a pawesome way to keep pumpkin pulp on hand at all times, don’t you?

  • Pumpkin + Apple Fiber digestive supplement for dogs and cats
  • Effective natural anti-diarrheal for dogs and cats
  • 100-percent USA product from the soil to the bag
  • No more canned pumpkin that goes to waste. Use what you need when you need it. Shelf stable for 24 months. Convenient reseal able USA made packaging
  • Excellent for travel Very effective when switching foods Can be mixed with water or fed as is Dogs and cats love the taste

Antioxidant rich blend to support healthy digestion. One 4oz bag will mix with water to make over 35oz of supplement. No more cans of pumpkin that go to waste in the fridge. Use what you need when you need it. Great for travel. Firm Up. supports regularity, happiness and health in your pet.

Firm Up was created because we “dig” your pet… and your carpet. Firm Up. is 100-percent grown, harvested, made and packaged in the USA… it is also packaged in BPA free resalable pouches that are made in the USA. Can be fed wet or dry To feed dry simply add one dose to feedings once a day. To feed wet, simply mix one part Firm Up. to one part water and add to feedings once a day. All size dogs and cats can benefit from Firm Up.

Going Grain Free with #PinnacleHealthyPets

September 23rd, 2015 · 1 Comment · Diet, Manufacturers

Woah! Summer is almost over. Did you make the most of it?

#PinnacleHealthyPets grain free Wyatt

Making the most of summer with Wyatt.

Wyatt Ray isn’t much of a hot weather dawg but when summer rolls around he knows he can count on us to take advantage of it. After all, summer is for swimming!

#PinnacleHealthyPets grain free Wyatt

From water to land, Wyatt goes and goes!

Now that Fall is coming, Wyatt can’t wait for that crisp fall air. He’s a new dawg when temperatures fall and he acts like a puppy again! All of that extra activity makes him hungry. Really hungry!

#PinnacleHealthyPets, German Shepherd, food, kibble

Is Fall here yet?

We’ve always been super conscientious about what he eats and it’s paid off. The good docs at Colorado State’s Community Practice Vet Clinic told us during his annual exam, “Whatever you’re doing, keep it up!”

#PinnacleHealthyPets grain free

Wyatt gets an “A+” checkup.

What are we doing for Wyatt? We thought you’d never ask!

  1. Monitoring his activity levels. He gets just the right mix of core-strengthening exercises, balance work and endurance-building walks. About 3 short sessions a day of play and exercise daily.
  2. Feeding him the best rated, grain free holistic foods. Making informed pet nutrition choices gives us the confidence in knowing we’re doing the best we can to protect him from disease.

We love sharing the results of our ongoing search for the best dog foods. Wyatt’s food gets rotated not just to add variety but to see what really works for him and what might work for your dog. Here’s one natural food we’re excited to check out:

Pinnacle® Holistic Pet Nutrition: Now Grain Free

You’ve probably seen Pinnacle® Holistic limited ingredient recipes in better pet supply stores. After all, it’s been around since 1998 and was one of the first holistic pet foods out there. We’ve seen it too, but here’s why we’re trying it now:

Pinnacle is now grain free!

#PinnacleHealthyPets Grain Free

Pinnacle is now Grain Free!

All Pinnacle recipes are now grain-free to make digestion that much easier for our dogs.

  • Limited ingredient, natural holistic dog food
  • Good for dogs with sensitive stomachs.
  • Includes quality ingredients like Quinoa, Sweet Potato, Pumpkin, Sea kelp, Cottage Cheese
  • Natural, healthy recipes that use high quality proteins
  • Antioxidants to support healthy immune system
  • Fiber to encourage healthy digestion and small stool
  • Promotes general joint health and overall muscle tone
  • Grain free, limited ingredients all made in Pinnacle’s Southern California plant

Since Wyatt only eats grain free, we’re excited to kick off the Fall/Winter quarter by rotating his diet to Pinnacle. Over the next months Wyatt will be an official Pinnacle Pup taste tester. Here’s how we’ll make the switch to Pinnacle:

#PinnacleHealthyPets Grain Free

Making the switch to Pinnacle Grain Free.

Starting today, Wyatt will make a slow transition over the course of five days. We don’t want to mess up his digestive pattern and risk late nights with runny poop so this is what we’ll do:

  • Day 1 & Day 2: 20% Pinnacle, 80% old brand
  • Day 3 & Day 4: 50% Pinnacle, 50% old brand
  • Day 5: 80% Pinnacle and 20% old brand.
  • Day 6: Time for 100% Pinnacle!

We don’t switch without giving it a lot of thought, but Pinnacle has a thoughtful promise to their customers that really stands out:

#PinnacleHealthyPets Grain FreeAll-natural wholesome foods rich in everything your pet needs and free of those things that may cause harm. That’s the commitment you will find in every bag of Pinnacle food.”

In the coming weeks, we’re going to find out if it’s true. Stay tuned!
