You Are What You Eat

October 01, 2019 Heather Murphy

I’ve been writing blogs for dogs for a number of years now and my purpose is to share information – information I have learnt on the way.  For the parent of an allergy pet it can be so tough, the endless scratching, sleepless nights, stress and worry is something else.          We brought you Eezapet to help break the itch/scratch cycle.  To offer relief to your dog (or cat), stopping rashes and itches from spreading all over their body (and quickly done with their constant scratching!) With so many rashes and allergies around these days this effective...
