Sparkling Sardines: Pet Treats to Beat Heat & Itch!

Sparkling Sardines

Pet Food Network StarsWhen Amy Burkert from GoPetFriendly.com dropped by to freeload for a month*, competitive shows from the Food Network dominated our television. Deciding to finally put Amy to work, I used her obsession to my advantage. The end result? We became Petfood Network Stars in our very own show minds.

Now, I’m no cook – for myself or my pets – which is why I feed the animals from The Honest Kitchen. I just add warm water and easily serve up a healthy meal. It smells so good, I’m sometimes tempted to serve it for dinner. It is human grade, after all. Still, Amy inspired me to get creative with her.

Check out our easy summertime treat to beat the heat and soothe environmental itch for cats and dogs! We call it…

Sparkle from The Honest Kitchen

KEY INGREDIENTS

Sparkle Herbal Supplement
The Honest Kitchen

We are encouraged that customers of The Honest Kitchen have remarked on it’s anti-inflammatory qualities. That’s the kind of relief our dogs need too.

Pizza Bites from Bark4Green.com

Pizza Bites
Bark4Green

Pizza Bites are great for dogs with allergies because they contain no wheat, corn or soy and they are made with with all natural, human quality ingredients & baked in small batches at a human grade kitchen in the USA.

Added Bonus

Both companies offer all-natural, human grade, hormone and antibiotic free pet foods. Amy and I don’t even feed ourselves as well as we do our pets. (Just watch us lick artificially colored and flavored orange goo from every one of our fingers after devouring a bag of cheese curls.)

THE HOW TO:

As our video demonstrates, the animals formed some pretty strong opinions about our mad cooking skillz. These Pet Food Network Stars made the cut… for now.

A LITTLE END NOTE OF HONESTY

* Amy, her husband Rod, and their two dogs didn’t mean to freeload in our basement for a month. Their intent was to freeload in our driveway for a week… until a faulty outlet installation set their Winnebago on fire. We were trying to be accommodating hosts, installing a means for air conditioning in their year-round mobile home. And we really were accommodating hosts… for an additional three weeks during repair.

DISCLOSURE

Amy and I are proud participants in The Honest Kitchen’s Allies Program. I joined because, after dangerous recalls and increased deception about what constitutes “healthy” food in the pet food industry, I finally found a human grade, socially and environmentally conscious dog food company that I can trust my dogs’ life with. While I do receive samples and a discount through the program, I tell everybody I know about The Honest Kitchen because – bottom line – I want them to feel as good about what they feed their dogs as I do.

Bark4Green provides Pizza Bites for the dogs at GoPetFriendly and they also donate them to Dog House Adoptions, a rescue that I co-founded. We feed these treats in abundance because they really are that good! No really. Smell them. They smell awesome and the dogs go nuts for them.

  1. There is so much to love about this post: food network competition shows (I am addicted to Top Chef like nobody’s business), you and Amy cooking together in a hilarious video, BarkWorld contest, and Honest Kitchen! When you put something together, you go all the way!

  2. That is so awesome! I’m *obsessed* with the food network. Obsessed. I’ve been planning to host a “Top Chef” style recipe competition at Kol’s Notes, with a couple other bloggers, maybe you gals should come on board!

  3. I would LOVE to go to BarkWorld – you have no idea how much. Or maybe you do. I definitely plan on entering the contest, though I wasn’t able to find anything that says if it was open to Canadians. I guess even if airfare from Canada isn’t included, I could enjoy the rest of the prize! If I don’t win, I am still going to try to find a way to get myself there. *shakes fist*

    • If you win and it’s an issue, Kristine, drive to the US and fly from there! You aren’t that far, are you? I’d offer you a place to crash near Albany beforehand, but my house is a little like Hotel California. “You can check out anytime you like, but you may never leave!”

      I hope you manage a way there somehow. I still feel massive guilt that Amy might not see you thanks to our little electrical fiasco. Besides, I’d finally get to meet you in person AND we’d have a bunch of Team BTC in the house! Oh, and this conference is going to be a hoot! Win. Win. Win. Win. WIN!

  4. I may have to look into that sardine supplement for Cody. He has food allergies and i am wondering if this would help with that? He eats special food

    • Hey Caren, Sparkle from The Honest Kitchen is an herbal supplement. It doesn’t have sardines in it. We just added them in. Let us know if you see an improvement!

      I’m not sure what you feed Cody, but I’d suggest running it through the free evaluation tool at K9cuisine.com. http://www.k9cuisine.com/RateYourDogFood.aspx Packaging, wording and even celebrity backing can be deceptive as to how healthy a special food really is.
