Neutricks and Neutricks for Cats are an exciting new approach to healthy brain aging for the senior pet wellness market.
Based on the success of the protein “apoaequorin” (originally discovered in jellyfish) in canine trials, Neutricks developed two new supplements to support your pet’s cognitive health with a unique approach for both dogs and cats. Neutricks for Dogs has been formulated as a tasty chewable tablet that dogs love. Neutricks for Cats is available in a great tasting fish flavored sprinkle.
Neutricks is focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of novel supplements to provide support during age-related changes in memory, cognitive performance and related issues of aging pets. The Company’s first product, Neutricks brand dietary supplement (apoaequorin), is now available for sale by veterinarians. Neutricks is backed by research that shows it helps support brain cell health.
Just like people, animals can experience mild memory problems associated with aging. A pet that seems strangely distant, confused, or disoriented, may be a candidate. More than 28 million pets (dogs and cats) in the U.S. have canine mild memory issues. Independent research and veterinarian testimonials have reported that Neutricks® has positive benefits on animals with mild memory issues. As veterinary care increases the life span of our pets, the senior pet wellness market will grow. The pet-nutritional market was valued at $2.1 billion dollars in 2007 and 43% of this figure is from the sale of pet supplements alone. Sales of pet supplements are expected to reach $1.7 billion by 2012. There is growing demand for new and effective products to meet the needs of older pets.
Better primary medical care has led to longer-lived dogs and cats, and a subsequent increase in the prevalence of senior mild memory issues. In a study at the University of California-Davis, 62% of 11- to 16-year-old dogs showed signs in at least one category of memory impairment. In a survey of pet owners, nearly half of dogs age 8 and older showed at least one sign associated with mild memory problems. The Veterinary Journal published a recent study of pets seen by veterinarians in whom they estimated that 14.2 percent of older pets presented with mild memory problems yet only 1.9% were addressing the problems.
Safer. Gentler. Easier to use. More effective.
Introducing the Eazee by FooleeClick & Brush Deshedding Tool
NEW YORK CITY, NY – Ask practically any pet parent and they’ll tell you they love everything about their pet except the shedding. Dogs and cats leave excess hair everywhere unless they’re frequently groomed with a deshedding tool. However, many tools have sharp metal edges that can scratch parents, children or pets. That’s why the Eazee™ by Foolee® Click & Brush tool was created.
Safer and gentler. Unlike ordinary metal deshedding tools, the Eazee tool features a composite plastic comb with smooth, rounded teeth. Since there’s no chance of nicking delicate skin or snagging live hair, even the most sensitive pets will enjoy being groomed every day.
Easier to use. As its name proclaims, the Eazee tool was designed for comfort and convenience. The head and contoured handle are precisely balanced, and the handy ejector button enables owners to effortlessly dispose of collected hair. Because the tool is constructed from materials with anti-static properties, it won’t become covered with hair.
More effective. This ingenious tool is designed to remove 100% dead hair and 0% live hair. In addition to its pet and family-friendly features, the Eazee tool is a versatile performer. Users can adjust the deshedding comb depth for either short or long hair by simply sliding the button. The comb can be reversed to groom thick or thin hair, and different combs for daily or more intense grooming are also included.
Exclusive Click & Brush system. The Eazee handle can also be used with a range of interchangeable grooming tools for any need.
“We are extremely pleased to introduce this internationally acclaimed deshedding and grooming system to the United States,” comments Eddy Cathaud, CEO of Swees America, creators of the Eazee by Foolee line. “Now retailers have a safer, gentler, more stylish alternative to offer their customers.”
ABOUT SWEES AMERICA INC

Noah’s Bark Launch’s All Natural Dog Biscuits
Cha-Cha Chicken, Peanutty Perfection, and Bodacious Beef
Noah’s Bark was originally conceived when founder, Michelle Volk’s dog, Sheba, was consistently sick. Noticing a tie between chronic sickness and her diet, Volk realized that a change had to be made. When Volk began introducing holistic, more nutritious foods into Sheba’s diet, she recovered and the concept for Noah’s Bark was born.
Noah’s Bark is a new line of all natural dog biscuits that are made from healthy lean proteins such as chicken, beef, and peanut protein blends and are most notably different for the ingredients you won’t find in the products: potentially harmful fillers like wheat, corn, soy, added sugars, and animal by-products. Another major differentiator of Noah’s Bark dog biscuits is that the products focus on freshness, using liquid by-products of the ingredients used, instead of water during the production process. This allows the product to retain more nutrients from its ingredients.
Noah’s Bark Founder and CEO Michelle Volk explains, “If it isn’t good enough for me, it isn’t good enough for my dog or yours. Eat healthy. Treat healthy. The healthier the food, the healthier and happier the dog. Ingredients do make a difference!”
Each biscuit is held to the most stringent quality control checks in the industry and are crafted in a facility that is Safe Quality Food Certified. Noah’s Bark biscuits are currently available in the following flavors:
Cha-Cha Chicken: Made from Chicken, Brown Rice, Pearled Barley, Carrots, Peas, Green Beans, Flaxseed, Oat Hulls, Chicken Fat, Natural Chicken Flavor, and Rosemary Extract
Peanutty Perfection: Made from Oat Flour, Peanut Butter, Ground Apples, Cane Molasses, Flaxseed, Oat Hulls, Natural Yeast Flavor, Mixed Tocopherols (Preservatives), and Rosemary Extract
Bodacious Beef: Made from Pearled Barley, Beef, Carrots, Peas, Green Beans, Celery, Flaxseed, Oat Hulls, Chicken Fat, Natural Chicken Flavor, and Rosemary Extract
Noah’s Bark All Natural Biscuits are currently available online atbuynoahsbark.com and a 14 oz. bag retails for $12.99. With every purchase of Noah’s Bark, a donation is made to local pet rescues and shelters. Wholesale opportunities are also available.
Noah’s Bark is based in Fort Worth, Texas and they are proud to sponsor local community events such as the SPCA of Texas’ Home for the Holidays campaign and the Dallas Jingle Bell Run.

From one of the country’s foremost doctors and now New York Times bestselling author comes a step-by-step plan for diagnosing, treating and healing Lyme and other chronic diseases.
HOW CAN I GET BETTER?
An Action Plan for Treating Resistant Lyme and Chronic Disease
Dr. Richard Horowitz
Since its release in the fall of 2013, Dr. Horowitz's groundbreaking text on Lyme and chronic disease Why Can’t I Get Better? has been an extraordinary success, selling close to 50,000 copies across formats to date with a media platform that is increasing every day. Now, in HOW CAN I GET BETTER?: An Action Plan for Treating Resistant Lyme and Chronic Disease (SMP OS February 14, 2017), a new handbook, he provides what everyone suffering desperately needs: a direct, actionable step by step plan for implementing his 16-point MSIDS Diagnostic Map in the treatment of Lyme and Chronic Disease, along with the research updates that guide his treatment and new stories pulled from his practice that show how healing is possible.
The ongoing debate over Lyme disease as a chronic illness has made it difficult for patients to find appropriate care, as they are often misdiagnosed with such diseases as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, an auto-immune disorder, or even a psychiatric condition. Meanwhile, answers are elusive and doctors knowledgeable in treating remain few. At the same time, the number of cases is growing astoundingly each year, reaching epidemic proportions. Specific and accessible, HOW CAN I GET BETTER? is an all-in-one source to guide doctors and patients alike in identifying symptoms and working together for the best possible treatment outcome.
RICHARD I. HOROWITZ is a board-certified MD specializing in Internal Medicine. He and his wife, Lee, founded the Hudson Valley Healing Arts Center in Hyde Park, New York, which has treated over 12,000 patients for tick-borne diseases over the past twenty-six years. Dr. Horowitz is known for his pioneering work with Lyme disease and is recognized to be one of the country’s foremost experts on chronic illness.

A Book of Happiness for Cat Lovers
By Anouska Jones
Cats have a way of walking into our lives and making themselves right at home. No cat lover can imagine life without a feline presence — even if it’s only as fleeting as the occasional conversation with a neighborhood stray. MEOW: A Book of Happiness for Cat Lovers (Exisle Publishing, New in Paperback, March 2016) is a compendium of delightful quotes and gorgeous photographs that capture the essence of this fascination. Together they show a cat’s beauty and grace. Some of the quotes are by famous people (Mark Twain, Jean Cocteau, Ernest Hemingway), others not; some are philosophical, others light-hearted — all are memorable. The imagery captures the elegance, style and pesonality of cats.
MEOW is the perfect gift for cat lovers -- a book that will be forever treasured, displayed and enjoyed.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Anouska Jones is a cat-loving book editor, who has worked in publishing for over twenty years. She compiled the quotes in MEOW from a range of sources, while her beloved cat kept close watch from her vantage point on Anouska’s desk.

Flexrake® is America's number one brand name in raking. It is a family owned and operated company and has been since 1945.
We specialize in lawn and garden tools and dog clean-up tools, which are available at many quality retailers across the nation. These brands are made up of cutting, digging, cultivating, weeding, and clean-up tools
At Flexrake® we are committed to American manufacturing. We continue to employ Americans in manufacturing and do everything in our power to retain jobs in America. Our top selling garden and pet products are “Made in America”, here in Temple City, California. We believe that we can be competitive in America and we intend on continuing that philosphy. Our customers and our associates are and will remain our top priority.
Family owned and operated since 1945.
The economic growth of the United States following World War II saw parallel growth in many industries. The sheer volume of new agricultural fields and the explosion of residential properties required many new high quality hand tools.
Among the many to respond to the needs of the agricultural and landscape professionals was George Brock, our founder. George designed and manufactured a new durable and lightweight metal rake which was the first to feature curved tines that penetrated the surface of the turf. This made each stroke more efficient and required far fewer strokes to complete each raking project. George literally created the “Lawn Rake” market with his new “flexing rake.”
During the next few years George developed a strong following, yet he did not rest on his laurels. He continued to refine his manufacturing processes and created new metal composition. George wanted to ensure that each tine would individually flex and lift embedded debris from deep below the surface and at the same time, last job after job.
In 1975, after nearly 30 years, George hired John McGuire. John quickly learned about lawn and garden from George and many other industry professionals. Never satisfied with just conversation, John decided to work with the local landscapers to see just how our tools performed in the field. Ultimately, he set the company on a solid path of manufacturing and product development.
Today, Flexrake® is America's number one brand name in raking. John makes sure that all of us here at Flexrake® continue to build on the foundation of enthusiasm for manufacturing great products that George Brock started 65 years ago.
