Rejeneril’s Ingredients

Rejeneril is a patented, proprietary blend that contains Alpha Lipoid Acid, Palladium, , N-acetyl cysteine, Formyl methionine, Ruthenium, Rhodium, water, Vitamin A Acetate, Vitamin B1 as thiamine Hydrochloride, B12 as Cyanocobalamin, Riboflavin complex and Molybdenum.

Rejeneril is completely safe and non-toxic as a supplement for your pets. In safety studies, clinical rats were given 900 times the recommended dose of Rejeneril and all the rats survived.”

My Thoughts:

It’s no secret that I am a huge proponent of feeding our Labrador-mix Kona a healthy diet, similar in many ways to how I feed myself. I believe that you can’t expect your dog to be active, spry and healthy without proper nutrition. The phrase “she’s just a dog” never gets uttered in my house. I treat her like a living, breathing being that deserves high quality nourishment.

That said, a supplement like Rejeneril certainly peaked my interest in that it caters to filling in the nutritional gaps and offering a means for a pup to get a boosted cell-turnover rate and a shorter recovery time.

My skepticism and concern lies in the fact that the ingredients appear to be isolated compounds with funky names. Thought they may all be “non-toxic” and “safe.” I’m looking for way better than that. I want our Kona to THRIVE, not just survive. I believe that whole food based supplements are the best call when supplementing a diet. Nature has it figured out–there are so many readymade healers that can help a canine achieve optimum health, and I believe the most in using those. That route feels right to me and it makes sense in my mind.

I acknowledge the fact that I am a bit of a snob in regards to supplements–I’ve experienced the best, raw, organic supplements and I hold everything else I try to those standards.

Backing up a bit, I’ll say that I appreciate the fact that this supplement is non-toxic. I just find myself growing weary of how the ingredient list reads. I am wanting to see plant-based sources on here that are not isolates.

My Ultimate Pet would like to get a bottle into your hands & find out what you think, as well!

Binka Girl Apparel Review: Supporting Local Dog Shelters!

Binka Girl

Overall Rating: 5 Stars

About Binka Girl:

“Inspired by growing up on the beaches of Jupiter, Florida with her shelter dog, Binki, Jessica created the simple yet versatile in wear style of binka.

Binki was adopted from a high-kill shelter and given a second chance at life. Her amethyst charm dots the “i” in “binka” and her legacy continues to inspire Jessica to save homeless and shelter dogs and support the No Kill Nation movement. All excess fabric and a portion of binka’s proceeds are donated to various shelters and rescue groups. With your purchase, you are joining binka’s mission to support and save abused and homeless animals worldwide.

Binka’s mission is to support the rescue efforts of homeless and abused animals and to inspire people to adopt animals from local shelters and rescue groups.

You can learn more about binka’s current corporate partner rescue programs and fundraising efforts on our facebook page.
Please visit your local shelter, humane society or rescue group’s website for more info on how you can get involved or adopt your next pet!”

________________________________

My Thoughts:

I was (and still am) SO excited to connect with Binka Girl–a brand on a beautiful mission that is based out of my hometown: Jupiter, FL. Supporting Binka Girl warms my heart. The fact that they donate 10% of their orders to local pet shelters is such an incredible thing.

We rescued our dog, Kona from a shelter here in Kansas City called Wayside Waifs. Because of that whole experience, I became even more passionate about not only owning a dog, but getting them from a rescue shelter. My family has had many dogs growing up. Thus, my love for dogs has always been there and we are so lucky and blessed to have the best dog in Kona. We may be biased but she truly is an incredible dog. It just goes to show that you do not have to get a dog from a breeder to have a good one. Rescuing is the way to go!

I digress a bit, but, I believe that Binka Girl’s mission is just as beautiful as their clothing. They have a great thing going down there in south Florida!

I love having pieces of clothing that are unique, that I won’t see everywhere, that feel like home. This hoodie is just that. It makes me think of Jupiter, reminds me to stay anchored in who I am (I seriously love this anchor graphic!) and keeps me comfortable and uniquely outfitted. I also think it’s very figure flattering and I like how it’s a good length (as well as the sleeves).

I can’t think of a single woman I know that wouldn’t love one of these. They would make an awesome gift or just an addition to your own wardrobe. In addition to having a great piece of clothing, it will feel really good knowing you’re help supporting an amazing cause and helping Jessica of Binka Girl support local dog shelters.

I can’t rave enough about this brand. I was lucky enough to be gifted this hoodie–but they also make many other pieces such as bermuda shorts, pants, tees and tanks. It’s truly hard to close because they are all so unique, well made and designed.

Go get some Binka clothing! You’re doing a whole lot of good in doing so.

The Honest Kitchen Dog Food Review

The Honest Kitchen Dog Food

Overall Rating: 4 Stars5 Stars

In our house, filling our kitchen with organic food & products is something that we make a priority. This is also the case for how we feed our black labrador, Kona. Just like us humans, she will not reach her potential health-wise if she does not eat good food. We enjoy and feel good about feeding her well, and it shows! She is an energetic and beautiful almost 8-month old puppy.

The Honest Company is one of the few brands of dog food that I have felt confident in feeding Kona. They appear to truly use great ingredients in their products. The Honest Kitchen provides this information regarding ingredients on their website:

“We taste every single ingredient that goes into our foods to make sure it’s just right

We’re proud of every ingredient we source for our natural pet food. We choose many ingredients from as close to home as possible, to help reduce our carbon paw print. We also choose ingredients from their native lands around the world and select vendors based on the quality of their ingredients, not cost.

All our dog and cat foods are 100% human-grade and are held to exactly the same quality standards as the food you feed to your human family.

  • We never buy GMO or genetically engineered produce.
  • Several of our ingredients are certified organic and we’re working to add more organic ingredients whenever we can.
  • We require certification to verify that every lot of raw ingredients we buy has been tested clear of salmonella, E-coli, listeria, lead, arsenic, mercury, melamine, yeast and mold & pesticide residues, before it’s even allowed inside our plant.”

Here are the products we tried with her:

My Description & Thoughts:

Kona did not seem to differentiate in between the Embark, Thrive and Love dog food blends, as she gobbled up all of them. As dog owners, my husband and I can feel good about this because of the great ingredients.

All 3 of these blends come in powder form, as it is dehydrated form. To serve it to Kona, I sprinkle a half serving onto the dry food I feed her along with a few tablespoons (approximately) of water, which helps make The Honest Kitchen food more digestible for her. The Honest Kitchen provides more description of how they recommend you feed their food to your dog, as well.

I would rate these dog foods 4.5 stars–I admire their usage of some certified organic ingredients and their guarantee to never buy GMO ingredients. They are striving to include more and more organic ingredients and when that day comes, I won’t hesitate to give this food a flat-out 5 star rating. In comparison to other common store-bought dog foods, this product line is light years ahead–there is merely no comparison. I recommend this very much to pet owners who are looking for one of the best natural dog food lines available, as this is one of a few brands that is worth the money.

Newman’s Own Organics Dog Food & Treats Review

photo-15

Dry Food – Adult Dog Formula

Overall Rating: 5 Stars

Newman’ Own Organics Description:

-“Made with organic brown rice, peas and carrots, Free of added hormones, antibiotics and chemical additives, No artificial colors or flavor enhancers, No wheat or corn.”

My Thoughts:

-Even though this is suggested for adult dogs, our 4 month old labrador loves this food. The main difference I have noticed in adult vs puppy food is simply a higher fat content in the puppy food. I fed this to her by sprinkling it over her puppy food–she always gobbled it right up.

Canned Food – Chicken and Brown Rice

Newman’ Own Organics Description:

-“Single Source of Organic Protein – Organic Chicken or Organic Turkey, Grain Free: no wheat, no corn, no soy, no gluten, USDA Organic, High palatability, Easily digested, Low carbohydrates, Made in the USA.”

My Thoughts: Our Lab, Kona, loves this canned food! Like the dry formula, I add this to her normal serving of dog food. She goes right for it. With all of these organic foods in her diet, Kona’s coat is shiny and healthy. She also has tons of energy and is always very vivacious.

Canned Food – Organic Beef

Newman’ Own Organics Description:

-“Grain Free, USDA Organic, No Wheat or Corn, No Artificial Flavors, Colors or Preservatives.”

My Thoughts: Kona loves this food perhaps even more than the chicken and brown rice flavor. She devours it! These canned foods don’t give her diarrhea and they keep her digestive system regular.

Snack Sticks – Chicken & Rice

Newman’ Own Organics Description:

-“An everyday, soft dog treat that’s great for training, too! Made with All Natural and Organic Ingredients. No Wheat or Corn. No artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. In a convenient, re-sealable bag. Made In USA.”

My Thoughts: I give these to Kona throughout the day as a treat for going potty outside and sitting on command. Each stick lasts just a minute or two–they are not like hard bones.

Treats – Peanut Butter

Newman’ Own Organics Description:

-“Newman’s Own Organics takes premium treats one step further by offering Dog Treats, made with Natural and Organic ingredients, that are high in protein, naturally preserved and contain no wheat or corn, no artificial colors or flavor enhancers, and are free of added hormones, antibiotics and chemical additives.”

My Thoughts: When we first got Kona we would put a dollop of peanut butter inside of a Kona toy and she would lick it until all of it was gone. Because of this, I think she developed an affinity for peanut butter. She loves these treats–she would always run over to me at the sound of the bag opening.

It is a bit different for me to write a review for our dog, as she cannot tell us exactly what she thinks. We do know that she devours every last Newman’s Own Organics products. The best part is that we can feel good, as dog owners, that we are feeding Kona high quality, organic food & treats. These ingredient lists are clean & impressive and we look forward to buying more of this food for Kona!
