When safe and natural pet products aren't: What's really going into your dog, anyway?

There's nothing that gets me grumpier than pet products that claim to be "natural" seem to contain synthetic and potentially unsafe ingredients when you start......

    Indeed! SLS is a really bad one, I can't believe it's "ok" to put natural on the label. I really hope there's some kind of movement to put rules around how it can be marketed. WOW - that is great to hear of the stores cracking down and helping consumers in this crazy market. Love to hear that!

    Lauryl Sulfates are another I see all the time in "natural" products, for humans and canines. Arg. Educating yourself matters but I have also found that having a retailer to trust not to sell products with misleading labels helps. We are SO lucky to have three truly natural pet stores doing a whole lot of the ingredient research for us within walking distance!

    I wasn't getting results by targeting the UK or USA so I went local and tried to catch India where I got quantity, just no quality.

    Fake accounts in my book is Celeb pics as profile display pictures, a smattering of random friends, celebrity or unreal names, screenshots from films or silly quotes as the only content ever shared.

    Yeah I haven't quite figured out the Philippines thing yet. When you talk about fake FB accounts, how do you know they're fake? No activity on their wall at all? I haven't really looked into all my followers.

    Great post! The Philippines thing is insane though, because I've seen a massive number of bloggers from the Philippines in groups and things, but you don't really see too much content coming from there. Strange phenomenon indeed. And then there's the not connected to option, which is great, but I've found I tend to get a lot of likes from fake accounts in my country after running a campaign. Have you had any such experience?

    Thanks Jon! Moving beyond buzzwords and popular trends is important. When you look closely at the millennial data we find we are more similar than different. Why set up roadblocks to more adoption? Leaders face enough challenge on a daily basis. Cheers Mr.

    Hi Sarah,

    #8 REALLY vibes with me. Fab insight!

    Be you. I love it when folks read guest posts of mine - without knowing I wrote them - and say, they know it's me. Well done, RB.

    It's no chore either. Being your authentic, unique self is the quickest, easiest and most direct route to become uber successful on the blogging front. It's fun to do this, and it's quite cheap too; no need to force anything. If you're being you, this audience growth bit happens quite naturally, and traffic flows freely to you.

    I'm a fan of recounting my travel stories, and linking these stories to my blogging tips. This is how I've retired to a life of island hopping through smart blogging and it's also how I've churned out 8 eBooks recently. The secret is to relax, chill, and to simply be you, writing without fearing criticism, or writing without imitating your neighbor.

    You definitely have YOUR voice Sarah, and I dig it.

    Tweeting from Fiji.

    I am adding them manually. While I know they won't show up when the article is tweeted, having a photo attached helps others to see it and therefore it receives better interaction. IDK why some ppl's photos load and others do not. No one on Triberr ever answered my emails or the bonfire I started with the question, except for one random person who left information that was incorrect. It's a shame really, because photos are such a huge part of blogging and if this platform intends on helping bloggers, the photos of all feeds should show. Anyway, thanks so much for the compliments on this photo, and yeah, every time I see it, I want to make it again! haha I think I ended up eating most of it when I made it! haha

    Yep, I'm not seeing the graphics either Sue. I don't even see your header image or your "about" photo in the sidebar. I'm getting a "Forbidden" message when I try to open images in a new tab so it might be the permissions in your wp-content/uploads folders. Just guessing, it's not my expertise. ;)
