GoPure Pet™ Provides Pure Water for Your Pet All Day, Every Day
Ensues healthy hydration, keeps bowl clean and water fresh for pets
Wilton, CT (January 5, 2017) – Bloc Enterprises, LLC – makers of the first-ever portable and continuous, personal water enhancement device, the GoPure Pod™ – is proud to announce the launch of their companion product, GoPure Pet™. Attaching to the bottom of most water bowls, GoPure Pet features the revolutionary technology of the GoPure Pod to continuously purify and enhance tap water ensuring it is clean, healthy, and great tasting for your pet, all day, everyday.
At the heart of the GoPure Pet is GoPure Pod’s PuriBloc™ – an advanced, highly porous ceramic that constantly cleans tap water for peace of mind and taste satisfaction. Through PuriBloc’s technology, the GoPure Pod adsorbs the most dangerous contaminants now commonly found in tap water across the country such as Chlorine, Fluoride, Arsenic Chromium, Lead and Mercury. Additionally, the GoPure Pod balances pH levels and releases valuable trace minerals so your pets’ water tastes better, retains its freshness all day long and keeps pet bowls clean.
“The most important thing you can do to keep your dog or cat healthy is to have them drink plenty of fresh, clean water,” says Earth Animal DVM and founder Robert Goldstein, who specializes in animal nutrition. “GoPure Pet is the first product we’ve seen that enhances water from any tap water source and keeps it cleaner and great tasting throughout the day. The peace of mind that comes with knowing you’re enhancing this most essential ingredient for your pet’s health is invaluable.”
The GoPure Pet’s protective shell safely attaches to the bottom of most bowls via two high-strength suction cups, eliminating the chance of pets swallowing or chewing on the pod while drinking. One reusable GoPure Pet lasts up to six months and can treat up to 264 gallons of water. Once the GoPure pod has reached its lifespan, it’s easily replaced in the same GoPure Pet shell.
GoPure Pet retails for $29.95 is now available for purchase at www.gopurepod.com and select retailers across the country including Camping World and Bentley’s.

Buzzing to a City Near You: Zika Virus
AMCA Warns Public of Exotic Mosquito-borne Disease Spreading in Caribbean
MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. – February 9, 2016 - Zika virus, a pathogen transmitted by mosquitoes, has seemingly established itself in South America and the Caribbean and is now threatening the U.S. Cases have been reported in Florida, Illinois, Texas and Hawaii in patients having traveled to Central and South America, where they acquired the virus through mosquito bites. It’s unclear whether the virus could establish itself in the U.S., but the mosquitoes that transmit this disease, the Asian Tiger Mosquito (Aedes albopictus) and the Yellow Fever Mosquito (Aedes aegypti) are found in southeastern and Midwestern states. Both species lay their eggs in containers such as cans, discarded tires and other items that hold water close to human habitation.
“This is a most discomfiting development, and reminds us that some of the most exotic mosquito-borne diseases are but a few hours plane flight from the continental United States,” says Joseph Conlon, Technical Advisor of the American Mosquito Control Association (AMCA).
The virus was first isolated from monkeys in the Zika Forest in Uganda in 1947. Although rarely fatal, the symptoms of rash, joint pain, conjunctivitis, muscle pain and headache can be debilitating and may persist for several weeks. Alarmingly, exposure of a fetus to Zika virus during pregnancy has been known to result in birth defects such as microcephaly, a deformation of the infants head often associated with various significant developmental problems.
Public health departments and mosquito control districts in the southeast are gearing up public education, mosquito control and laboratory programs to meet the threat. “Traditional mosquito methods of truck-mounted and aerial sprays are ineffective in controlling the species of mosquitoes that transmit Zika,” says Conlon. “The best way to prevent Zika from establishing itself is through the removal of water-bearing containers. Sanitation is key.”
In the meantime, individuals can do their part by eliminating water sources providing mosquito- breeding habitat around their homes. Bites can be prevented through the use of long-sleeve clothing and EPA-registered repellents such as DEET, picaridin, IR3535 and oil of lemon-eucalyptus. It’s particularly important for women who are pregnant or attempting to get pregnant to avoid travelling to areas of active Zika infection.

Dr. Willard’s – Improving Natural Water | NewsWatch Review
Published on June 16, 2015
Natural products are sweeping the marketplace, and consumers are making more informed decisions about the products they use. This includes pet care products.
In the 1960s, a scientist and chemist named, Dr. John Willard, invented a complex water catalyst that alters the molecular structure of normal water. His invention, known simply as Dr. Willard’s Water, makes water more efficient and reactive. It works to improve peoples’, plants and pets overall health and wellness by delivering nutrients at a higher rate. This product is aimed to help animals with health problems or animals that experience stress, but it can also be used for all pets to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Depending on the health of the animal, different dosage amounts are recommended. More than 40 years after the birth of this invention, we had a chance to sit down with Dr. Willard’s grandson, John Willard the 3rd, to learn more about Dr. Willard’s Water.
“Dr. Willard’s water is a patented all natural solution and when its consumed it stimulates a variety of bodily functions such as improved nutrient assimilation, improved antioxidant activity, and boosted vitamin effectiveness to eliminate toxins which can cause premature cell damage.”
–John Willard the 3rd
The pet care product line has a variety of solutions for animals
“The product line itself is a natural reparative pet care kit because we believe in taking a holistic approach and providing a variety of pet care solutions. We have a pet water drop line that is designed to be added to the water that enhances the dogs overall health and well-being. We have a spray that can address a variety of different skin ailments such as minor cuts and abrasions. We also have a gel which is great for moisturizing the skin and keeping the skin in better overall health.”
–John Willard the 3rd
Willard donates 25 cents to every pet care bottle sold to animal shelters and pet care organizations around the world. So, if you want to learn more about this Dr. Willard’s invention and their other products, you can visit their website.
