I feel a customer service rant coming on…..

Hey everybody!  I realllllly hope your day has been better than ours!  We have just moved to our next adventure destination (honey bunny’s job has us traveling) for the rest of the year, soooo we had to call the satellite company to set us up on the ground, because the “fixed” one on top of the motorhome won’t pick up and since we can’t move it around, we can’t find an open space for it.  ANYWAY, I called the company two days ago, they set us up for an appointment between 12-4.  The technician called us a bit after 11, said he was ahead of schedule, could he go ahead and come out.  That sounded like good news……at the time.  He showed up about 12:30, looked around a few minutes, said “sorry” I can’t help you, I’ll call another tech.  Well, hello, there are two dishes within a few feet of us, with the SAME company we use, and you can’t set one up?  Really?  Come on now, don’t give me that.  I don’t think he even wanted to try.  He said the other tech would be here in about an hour.  Several hours passed, I went to the “online chat” area, told a rep the issue, they said someone would be contacting us.  Three more hours go by, stillllll nothing.  I went to “online chat” again.  They said someone was on the way and would be calling within 30 minutes.  That was almost 2 1/2 hours ago, still no one here, still no phone call.  I called the company AGAIN.  Finally got someone that is at least on the east coast, and now we’re set up for 3 days from now!  We’ll see if anyone actually shows up.  I’m so frustrated!  We have been with this company for 20 years and have NEVER had an issue like this before.  Their customer service is usually top notch, but apparently people here don’t care about work ethics, helping people, or the concept of time.  There are only a few things on my pet peeve list……one is being lied to.  Do NOT lie to me!  I might get my feelings hurt, but I’ll get over that.  You lie?  I won’t trust you anymore…EVER.  Which would you prefer?  The other issue is respect/common courtesy…..if you say you’re going to do something, do it.  If you can’t, then let the person know!  If you’re going to be late, then call, text, email.  SOMETHING!  Don’t just let it go!  That’s rude, inconsiderate, disrespectful and just downright wrong!!!!  People have more important things to do than sit around and wait all day for you to decide to NOT show up!  UGH……..  I have been soooo very patient today, and tried soooo hard to be nice and understanding, but after alllll these hours of nothing I’m worn out and unhappy……

Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day…..

Until next time, I hope YOU have a great day!  🙂

 

Happy New Year!!!

Do you know what’s in your pet food? Do you care?

Happy Tuesday everybody!

Are your pets just “animals” to you or are they part of the family? Mine are definitely part of the family and I will provide them with whatever foods/treats that I can find that I feel are the best and healthiest ingredients available. I want my babies to be happy and healthy. You already know that what you put in YOUR body makes a difference to your health, don’t you think it’s the same for your pets?

I’ve already told you in previous posts about how important label reading is, and that goes the same for dogs. READ YOUR LABELS! I can’t stress that enough, whether it’s human food or pet food. I have had pets most of my life, and never thought a lot about it until I started noticing issues, like constantly puking, having the runs, itchy skin, flaky skin, upset tummies and such. I tried everything I could find. Store bought food/treats, from cheap to expensive, vet brands, you name it I tried it. Then I learned to read labels and care about what I put in MY body when I started school in 2008, so I started doing the same for my pets. I am now a diehard Halo fan, and Only Natural Pet dehydrated foods, for my three fox terriers. Since I started feeding Halo about 5 years or so ago, I haven’t had the food issues anymore. No tummy issues, they don’t smell like dogs (meaning they don’t get stinky between baths), their teeth are clean, they’re not itchy acting, their fur is shiny and soft….I could go on and on. Both of these companies use the best ingredients available for animals, and I’m so glad I found them both!

Here are the ingredients in one of the Halo dry kibble dog foods:

Chicken, Eggs, Pea Protein, Oats, Vegetable Broth, Pearled Barley, Chicken Fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols and citric acid), Whole Peas, Chicken Liver, Salmon, Flax Seed, Salmon Oil (preserved with mixed tocopherols), Pea Fiber, Sweet Potatoes, Apples, Blueberries, Green Beans, Carrots, Cranberries, Zucchini, Alfalfa, Inulin, Calcium Sulfate, Potassium Chloride, Taurine, Salt, Vitamins (Folic Acid, Vitamin A Supplement, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Vitamin E Supplement, Vitamin B12 Supplement ,Choline Bitartrate, Niacin, d-Calcium Pantothenate, Ascorbic Acid, Riboflavin Supplement, Thiamine Mononitrate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Biotin), Minerals (Zinc Proteinate, Iron Proteinate, Cobalt Proteinate, Copper Proteinate, Manganese Proteinate, Magnesium Proteinate, Calcium Iodate, Sodium Selenite), Dried Lactobacillus acidophilus Fermentation Product, Dried Bifidobacterium longum Fermentation Product, Dried Enterococcus faecium Fermentation Product, Dried Lactobacillus plantarum Fermentation Product

Here are the ingredients in ONP dehydrated:

Chicken & Oats

Ingredients – Oats, Chicken, Rye, Barley, Cabbage, Carrots, Whole Egg, Flax Meal, Tricalcium Phosphate, Cranberries, Parsley, Dried Kelp, Dried Alfalfa, Ginger Root, Vitamin A Palmitate, Sodium Chloride, Vitamin D3, Zinc Gluconate, Ferric Pyrophosphate (Iron), Vitamin E, Copper Gluconate, Vitamin B12

Most dog foods use “meal” in their foods and I like the explanation given by Halo as to why they choose not to:

(By the way, both of these companies sell cat foods too.)

Another raw food that my dogs like is by I and Love and You, but only the dehydrated.

Only Natural Pet also has lots of other wonderful products and supplements for your pets. They also have a staff vet that you can ask questions of. They are very helpful.

Halo and ONP also have great treats available! With great ingredients of course. 🙂

I am not, nor have I ever been associated in any way, with these companies. I just like their products and wanted to share my GOOD experiences with their products. My pups are happy little campers and I like to think it’s because I choose to only give my pups the best products available. Wouldn’t you want to do the same? I hope so!

These are my babies:

I hope this tiny bit of information gets you to thinking about what you feed your pets. Please read your labels, and whether you choose one of these brands or not, I hope you choose one you feel is the best you can provide for your pet.

Until next time! Have a Happy Healthy day! :o)
