Brilliant Salmon Oil

 Brilliant Salmon Oil is the freshest and only human-grade fish oil available in the pet market, completely free for additives. Brilliant Salmon Oil is a pure, unrefined and gently liberated product derived from fresh Norwegian Atlantic Salmon. Only one ingredient, salmon oil.

Brilliant Salmon Oil delivers the transparency and superior quality that you and your pets deserve.

Created for both dogs and cats, heart-healthy Brilliant Salmon Oil gives pets glossy fur, softer paws, increased energy and enhanced appetite.  Brilliant is all-natural product, with absolutely NO additives, GMOs, or antibiotics. The transparent and UV-protected bottles, available in two sizes (10 oz. and 34 oz), offers an easy to use drip-free pump to give your dogs (and cats too!) the perfect amount every time.

Brilliant Salmon Oil by Hofseth BioCare, is produced in Norway using the purest process possible. Due to the unique patented extraction process – without boiling or pressing the oil – all the natural nutrients in the Atlantic Salmon are preserved. The whole process happening within hours results in the purest and most transparent oil, completely free of additives. Brilliant contributes to shinier coats and softer paws while helping to reduce inflammation and helping to prevent cardiovascular disease.

It’s a gift that will keep giving and giving and giving all year-through.

Did you know that over half a million dogs each year are estimated to choke on or swallow an object that’s too big for them to digest? In fact, veterinarians everywhere can attest that gastrointestinal distress is the most common reason for emergency vet visits, and even more troubling, bully sticks are often the culprit.  Beware the tail-end of the bully stick!
Dogs and dog owners love bully sticks because they are easy-to-digest, natural, healthy, stimulating and delicious. But as dogs chew the stick down, they increase the risk of choking on the tail end of the treat. If that little nub gets swallowed whole, your dog could choke or develop an intestinal blockage – both of which are serious medical emergencies.  This is not a small risk either – it happens All. The. Time. The Bully Buddy is not just a treat toy, it’s a lifesaver!

We fell in love with Pupcycle Bags when we met PupCycle’s Head Human Veronica. PupCycle is an un-subscription opportunity…you buy the bags you want (they’re eco-friendly, of course) and then non-toxic, eco-friendly and sustainably made dog toys magically appear on your doorstep whenever you want. Veronica and the gang don’t believe in buying a load of toys your dog won’t ever play with, so they curate to choose toys they know your dog will love and won’t end up filling landfills. But even better, they want pet parents to be mindful of products they give their dogs and to be a force of good. Their canine inspiration, rescued Greyhound Fly, inspired them to donate a portion of each bag to help other shelters, welfare groups and nonprofits rescue and save more dogs, so you really can’t lose by buying your pups these toys. And you’ll be a good hooman at the same time.
