I once recommended a food from Amazon and it's a good food but it jumped to over $4 a pound. Rachael Ray's foods are still under $1.50 per pound. And I love their formulations.

Maybe someday I'll break them out by animal-type. Where are the fish articles? They're coming, but that'll be a lot later because fish and koi and ponds has never really paid the bills.

"Koi Health & Disease, 2nd Edition" was written by Dr Erik Johnson to answer the need for a book that was approachable by laymen, and derived from direct, hands-on practice of Veterinary Medicine with Koi and Ponds.

Experience means I know the common things that happen and the fastest and easiest solutions, which vary DRASTICALLY by temperature crowding and pond size.

A 200 page distillation of 17 years of Koi practice including surgery.

A "bark correction" collar is of IMMENSE utility for dogs. Including the dog that goes OUT of his mind when he sees another dog on a walk. A dog that howls all day while you're at work. Even dogs that indulge vocalization with separation anxiety. Yeah. It's a "thing" and it works. Rechargeable, simple-to-use, durable waterproof bark collar with sound and sting.
FRESH BREATH and arrested dental disease. This magic stuff won't break down or remove tartar (crusting) but it will kill the germs that build it. And the breath. So. Much. Better. Oxyfresh is used as the only drinking water source (it's mixed in their water) and works wonders. OXYFRESH KIT 
I always thought that "Alexa" was just piffle. But then I got it. And I wonder "How did I live without this?" You can get all the lights in your house to turn on, and off at the same time. In fact you can automate just about everything. And it's SUPER eaasy to set up. ALEXA SYSTEMS from Amazon
Blink cameras create a seamless security system for your home. But if you just wanna look in on your dog, or your fish tank, knock yourself out! You can sprinkle these indoor:outdoor cameras inside and outside your house. No wiring needed because they run 2 years on a battery. It'll send you notifications if and whenever someone moves in the range of the Blink. I love mine.
These little Kasa plugs are from TP-Link who is one of the biggest IT Automation / router builders out there. Easy to install. Alexa compatible. You just say "Alexa Turn On Garage Lights" and bingobango. Lights come on. Anything you can plug in, like your coffee maker, fish tank, household lamps.
If you wanna grow plants, reptiles, even fish in the house with full spectrum lighting, the technology has come a long way. 1000W Grow Lights LED are now less than $200 and some are even less than $100. Look at how many feet they cover though, because <600W may not cover ONE plant! Grow tomatoes in the house
"Hot tubs aren't permanent anymore, and they're not $3,000 either (Closer to $500). A much-older buddy of mine says that the BEST relief for his severely arthritic spine, (and his hips), that he can get is from his hot tub. NOT pills.
Your dog can't use it's hind legs well enough to actually function or get around. If they can still pee and poop on their own volition, consider a cart for mobility while they convalesce with, or without surgery. For MOST dogs they work. I like the FOUR wheeled ones. But nowadays they make four wheel carts with removable front wheels. Mobility Carts for Dogs at a Reasonable Price.
Your dog or cat is at the house. What's he doing? Wanna pop-in and surprise 'em? Get these Furbo Treat Cams and you can visit like your dog's on Zoom! And talk to 'em. And even toss 'em a treat! Some people use these to give medicine when they're away. Others just to visit their dog from work! Furbo is just ONE manufacturer. Reliable. Here are all of them.
