Treat Your Pooch to These Paw-sitively Delightful Spots in Orange County
Written By: Brittany Lawrence Dog Orange County
Pets quickly become members of our families. They are loved, cared for, taught and fed just as if they were another child. Why shouldn’t we be able to spoil them just as much as we spoil ourselves or others? From clothes to treats to vacations, there are plenty of ways to shower your fur-babies in love. Need some ideas for yours? Here are nine ways to spoil your pets:
1 | Peanut Butter Goodness Dog Orange County
Spoil your furry companions with a special treat from Medterra—because who doesn’t love peanut butter? What makes Medterra’s pet chews so special is that they combine 10mg of CBD and other natural ingredients in each peanut butter chew. This supports joint health and overall wellness. “Our pet treats go beyond just being another CBD treat. We have taken our high-quality CBD and combined it with other powerful natural ingredients like glucosamine to create an enhanced effect and a happier pet,” said Jay Hartenbach, CEO of Medterra.
