There's nothing better than watching our pups enjoy their food! But what happens when they become overprotective of their No-Cluck Casserole or oven baked PACK breakfast?

What Plants Are Poisonous To Dogs?

What Plants Are Poisonous To Dogs?

While we're all for plant-based dog food, not all plants are good for your pooch to nosh on. In fact, some greenery is downright deadly for our dogs. Growing these plants inside your home, or indeed in your garden, is a risky business when you share your space with four-legged friends. To help sift the nom from the noxious, we’ve created a list of the shrubs and blooms that green-fingered pawrents should avoid in order to keep their dogs from sneaking a potentially lethal lick.

HOW TO GET YOUR DOG TO TAKE THEIR MEDICATION

HOW TO GET YOUR DOG TO TAKE THEIR MEDICATION

It can be hard getting your fur child to take their vitamins or veterinary-prescribed medication. Pooches who’ll happily nosh down on random foods they find on their walks, cow poo or anything you drop while eating, suddenly become the most discerning of dogs when presented with a tiny pill. So how do we convince (or dare we say, trick!) our canine pals into eating their meds?

OUR TIPS FOR INTRODUCING AN ADDITIONAL DOG INTO YOUR HOME

When you discover the magic of life with a dog, the logical next step is to adopt or buy another furry pal - the more the merrier, right? Maybe you’ve fallen in love with another rescue dog in need, or perhaps your existing dog loves pup-on-pup play so much that you want to give them a furry friend. There might be a local litter of puppies looking for homes or maybe it's simply your lifelong dream to have a house full of happy hounds (we empathise!) However, there are several things to consider before introducing a second dog into your...

FLEA AND WORMING TREATMENTS FOR YOUR DOG

Our PACK pawrents are a community of animal lovers: obviously we care deeply for our dogs but we also extend that compassion to farmed animals by choosing to feed plant-based pet food over meat. Many of us also reject insect-based dog food because we worry that crickets, mealworm and flies might be sentient, but what is the standpoint when it comes to fleas, worms and other parasites that can cause harm to your fur child?

HOW OUR PREMIUM INGREDIENTS HELP YOUR DOG’S HEALTH

HOW OUR PREMIUM INGREDIENTS HELP YOUR DOG’S HEALTH

Despite the increasing amount of scientific research suggesting that plant-based dog food is inherently healthier for your hound, many companies continue to insist that ‘premium’ pet food means meat, meat and more meat. Here at THE PACK, we think that’s barking mad! We know that ‘premium’ pet food means premium ingredients: ingredients that don’t include dodgy meat by-products, fattening offal or greasy chicken digest…Instead, we pack our meals with plant-based superfoods, every bite bursting with nutrients that have specific health benefits for your pooch.

Why Is Vegan Dog Food More Expensive Than Meat Based Dog Food?

Why Is Vegan Dog Food More Expensive Than Meat Based Dog Food?

RECOGNISING SIGNS OF PAIN IN OUR DOGS 

RECOGNISING SIGNS OF PAIN IN OUR DOGS 

When we're children, if we feel under the weather or we hurt ourselves, the first thing we do is tell our parents and ask for help.

That means that as pawrents, it's our responsibility to actively notice when our dogs are hurting and to seek veterinary help on their behalf.
