Mickey’s Mascot Nia Reviews SOJOS Complete Food

Hey, you’re back!

I know it hasn’t been very long since your last visit to Mickey’s blog but…

It felt like forever!

I’m sure most of you know who I am because Ann doesn’t stop talking about me (I mean, can you blame her?), but I’ll introduce myself to all her new friends.

My name is Nia, I’m a yellow Labrador Retriever and a member of the Mickey’s Pet Supplies team! My daily responsibilities include boosting office morale, giving wet kisses and, best of all, testing the toys and treats Mickey’s carries. Over the last four years I’ve been on a special diet of food from Sojourner Farms SOJOS and I wanted to share my first-paw account of their delicious and healthy dog food.

When Ann first sat me down and said, “we need to talk”, my mind immediately started racing.

What had I done?

I hadn’t chased the neighbor’s cats in weeks, I was doing my business outside in the yard, kept my voice down when the delivery man picked up the daily packages, and I wasn’t due for a vet visit for another 3 months.

What could it be?

Luckily, my concerns quickly turned to excitement when Ann placed a Sojourner Farms dog food bag in front of me. I had been hearing my friends at the park rave about the food’s natural ingredients and health benefits. Needless to say I was eager to try it!

The meal started with Ann mixing the human quality dehydrated food with water and letting it sit for 30 minutes…or one episode of the Dog Whisperer (my favorite show). During the soaking process, the U.S.D.A. Beef or Turkey and other all-natural (and yummy) ingredient’s like sweet potatoes, celery, carrots, cabbage, egg, flax, and cranberries absorbed all the water,  resulting in a succulent meal fit for a special dog (like me!)!

I was immediately overwhelmed (and overjoyed) by the smell of the natural dog food. The fresh vegetables, herbs, vitamins and animal protein combined to produce a taste and aroma much like my Ann’s Thanksgiving feast! Yum!

I’m lucky enough not to have any dietary restrictions but I have some friends with dog food allergies. Sojourner Farms Complete dog food mixes and dog treats are hypoallergenic and perfect for pets with grain allergies and for those who are sensitive to gluten. Sojos only uses natural human quality ingredients and wouldn’t think of adding artificial fillers or by-products. The big chunks of turkey and beef are irresistible and (of course) my favorite part!

When beginning the Sojourner Farms dog food diet, Ann slowly introduced the complete food into my diet. After four weeks I was fully acclimated to the natural dog food; not long at all! I give Sojos two paws up and recommend Sojourner Farms food and healthy dog treats to any and all dogs out there!

For more information and to see the entire selection of complete dog food, visit Mickey’s Pet Supplies online. The best part is, you humans get to enjoy Free Shipping on orders $75+ and free kisses from me if you visit us in our new home in Florida!

Now, where did I hide my bully stick…?

Find a Spay and Neuter Clinic

“We don’t know how it happened. She must have gotten out once.”
Those were the words one woman said when she dropped off four Schnauzer mix puppies with one of our rescue partners down south.
All it took was one time for this Schnauzer to escape and mate with an unknown and unaltered dog.
The story of these Schnauzer mix puppies is not an unusual one. The tragic fact is that such accidents are the main reason that 4 million companion animals are euthanized in municipal shelters around the U.S. every year. Most of these innocent animals end up in shelters because their owners didn’t make sure their pets were spayed (for females) or neutered (for males).
"We don't know how it happened. She must have gotten out once."  This is an all too familiar statement by so many pet owners.  All of our shelters, rescues, humane societies are full.  Responsible pet ownership is the answer to this overcrowding. As Bob Barker has been saying for years- " Spay and neuter your pets!"
At you can find a clinic in your area that has low cost or free spay and neuter clinics.  Ending this crisis begins with you.  
The litter of mixed breed pups was among the lucky ones. They were picked up from the southern shelter by North Shore Animal League America’s Mobile Rescue Unit as it returned with 50 dogs whom they saved from a puppy mill nearby. 
“Every year millions of companion animals are euthanized in shelters around the country because there just aren’t enough homes,” says Sylvia Ottaka, Senior Director of Shelter Operations at North Shore Animal League America. “Many of these animals are young puppies. Spaying or neutering your pet will greatly reduce the overpopulation of unwanted litters and prevent these puppies from being euthanized.”
As Ottaka points out, too often people think that if they keep their pets indoors or in a gated yard, they don’t need to have them spayed or neutered. But, as the story of the Schnauzer mix puppies illustrates, all it takes is one slip up—a door left open, a broken gate, or even another dog or cat getting into your yard—for an animal to become pregnant.
The good news: North Shore Animal League America is helping reduce unwanted litters through its SpayUSA initiative, the leading low-cost spay/neuter referral program in the country. SpayUSA has been educating the public and veterinary specialists about the importance of spay/neuter since its development in 1993.
“By creating a nationwide network and referral service, SpayUSA has literally helped hundreds of thousands of people obtain affordable spay/neuter procedures for their animals,” says Joanne Yohannan, Senior VP of Operations at North Shore Animal League America. “As a leader in the no-kill movement, we’re dedicated to working toward ending the destruction of animals, and this essential procedure is the key to making that happen.”
If you have a pet or know someone who does, be sure to make the humane decision: Spay or neuter your pets to prevent them from having any accidental pregnancies.
To find out more about SpayUSA, call 1-800-248-SPAY, or visit And don’t forget to ask your vet to join our network of 5,000 participating vets who take part in the program!

National Pet Week 2013- Tips & Ideas for Responsible Pet Owners

The week of May 5-11 is recognized as National Pet Week and aims to promote responsible pet ownership and celebrate the bond between pets and their owners. In appreciation of National Pet Week, veterinarian offices, schools, communities and animal lovers around the country are participating in fun and educational events. The motto of National Pet Week, “Love Your Pet, See Your Vet,” emphasizes that regular veterinary exams is a vital component of a pet’s long-term health and too few American pet’s receive routine physical exams. To help our customers celebrate National Pet Week 2013, Mickey’s is sharing tips for visiting a vet clinic, ideas for fun pet events and shines the spotlight on our most popular healthy pet treats.

“Love Your Pet, See Your Vet”
Visiting a veterinarian for routine check-ups is essential to the health of your pet. Some of the main reasons owners devalue the importance of vet visits is they believe their pet to be healthy as they display no symptoms of illness, they associate a pet’s symptoms as a behavioral not a medical issue or the owner is afraid of the treatment costs. Unfortunately many pet owners do not know that early detection of health issues increases the recovery success rate and lowers the treatment cost. Pets may also instinctively hide symptoms from their owners as their ancestors once did to avoid attracting attention from natural predators. Routinely grooming your pet and providing preventive care is important to the long term health of a pet and controlling their vet bills. We stress the need to stay on top of a dog’s dental cleaning with the help of a dog toothbrush, dog toothpaste, dental chews and oral rinses for dogs that clean plaque and tartar buildup. Brushing your pet’s coat, clipping their nails and cleaning a pet’s ears and eyes are additional animal care tips you can do from home. Don’t find out too late that your pet is sick; regular vet visits ensure serious health issues are identified as early as possible.

Planning Pet Parties & Events
National Pet Week isn’t just about highlighting the Do’s and Dont's of responsible pet ownership, it’s also about having fun! Giving your dog or cat an extra treat and a scratch behind the ears is a start but why not have a pet party? Invite a small number of pets (and their owners) to a Pet Week celebration! Invited guests will socialize, eat, run, play and be completely exhausted by the end of the event. If you’re having a dog party we recommend inviting dogs that your dog regularly plays with and introducing them in a neutral location.

Keeping animals and their humans entertained can be a feat so we’ve added some ideas for pet party games. Activities may include: Musical chairs for dogs, with the human walking the dog around the circle, best dressed pet contest, pet and parent agility contest, best trick contest and of course the fastest dog contest! The winners will love the prizes in the form of treats and toys. For dogs we recommend Kong dog toys including Air Dog Squeakair and Air Kong Happy Birthday Balls for a birthday celebration. The Musical Birthday Cake is also a top seller for pet birthday parties. Cats will go crazy for the interactive Da Bird Cat Toy, which mimics the action of a bird in flight.

Treats for your Party
Be sure to check for any allergies invited guests may have so you can plan the food spread accordingly. Many dogs are allergic to wheat, corn and soy; we have an extensive selection of hypoallergenic dog treats for guests with dietary restrictions. Mickey’s recommends the Sojourner Farms line of natural and grain free dog treats. Sojos products are made with human quality ingredients and they do not contain preservatives. Delicious flavors include peanut butter/honey, bacon/cheddar, beef stew, lamb/sweet potato, duck/cherry and more!

We hope you enjoyed our tips for celebrating National Pet Week 2013! Remember, responsible pet ownership takes patience, love and a regular vet visits throughout the life of your pet- not just during Pet Week.

Free Range Braided Bully Sticks

What is Free Range bully sticks?
Free Range is a term used for livestock that is allowed to freely roam and feed on the natural grasses and vegetation in their environment.
Free Range Eco Naturals dog chews are from humanely raised cattle that are allowed to graze the lush grasslands of South America. The Pampas region of Argentina is well known for their Angus cattle. Argentina's rainfall and largely temperate climate result in high quality pastures.
Because of how these cattle are raised, their meat is the most delicious.
The cattle are raised without the use of hormones, antibiotics or steroids. 
This means you are getting only the freshest, safest, all natural dog chews.

The Free Range Eco Naturals braided bully sticks are a great high protein chew to relieve boredom and satisfy your dog's innate desire to chew. They help keep teeth and gums clean.
These bully sticks contain only one ingredient-bull penis or bull pizzle and are available in 6 inch and 12 inch length.  Mickey's Pet Supplies only carries the highest quality dog chews and we believe that the Free Range Eco Naturals brand is the best for your dog. Visit us and take 10% off your first order with coupon code NEW10 at checkout. We ship your order of $75 or more for free.
