Noah’s Bark Launch’s All Natural Dog Biscuits
Cha-Cha Chicken, Peanutty Perfection, and Bodacious Beef
Noah’s Bark was originally conceived when founder, Michelle Volk’s dog, Sheba, was consistently sick. Noticing a tie between chronic sickness and her diet, Volk realized that a change had to be made. When Volk began introducing holistic, more nutritious foods into Sheba’s diet, she recovered and the concept for Noah’s Bark was born.
Noah’s Bark is a new line of all natural dog biscuits that are made from healthy lean proteins such as chicken, beef, and peanut protein blends and are most notably different for the ingredients you won’t find in the products: potentially harmful fillers like wheat, corn, soy, added sugars, and animal by-products. Another major differentiator of Noah’s Bark dog biscuits is that the products focus on freshness, using liquid by-products of the ingredients used, instead of water during the production process. This allows the product to retain more nutrients from its ingredients.
Noah’s Bark Founder and CEO Michelle Volk explains, “If it isn’t good enough for me, it isn’t good enough for my dog or yours. Eat healthy. Treat healthy. The healthier the food, the healthier and happier the dog. Ingredients do make a difference!”
Each biscuit is held to the most stringent quality control checks in the industry and are crafted in a facility that is Safe Quality Food Certified. Noah’s Bark biscuits are currently available in the following flavors:
Cha-Cha Chicken: Made from Chicken, Brown Rice, Pearled Barley, Carrots, Peas, Green Beans, Flaxseed, Oat Hulls, Chicken Fat, Natural Chicken Flavor, and Rosemary Extract
Peanutty Perfection: Made from Oat Flour, Peanut Butter, Ground Apples, Cane Molasses, Flaxseed, Oat Hulls, Natural Yeast Flavor, Mixed Tocopherols (Preservatives), and Rosemary Extract
Bodacious Beef: Made from Pearled Barley, Beef, Carrots, Peas, Green Beans, Celery, Flaxseed, Oat Hulls, Chicken Fat, Natural Chicken Flavor, and Rosemary Extract
Noah’s Bark All Natural Biscuits are currently available online atbuynoahsbark.com and a 14 oz. bag retails for $12.99. With every purchase of Noah’s Bark, a donation is made to local pet rescues and shelters. Wholesale opportunities are also available.
Noah’s Bark is based in Fort Worth, Texas and they are proud to sponsor local community events such as the SPCA of Texas’ Home for the Holidays campaign and the Dallas Jingle Bell Run.

(COTATI, CA)–As summer approaches and temperatures rise, the danger of dogs dying because negligent owners left them in a hot car grows as well.
Even on a day when it’s 70 degrees outside, the temperature inside a car can hit 90 degrees in just 10 minutes. On a hot day, the temperature inside a closed car can shoot as high as 116 degrees in the same amount of time.
What can you do, within your legal rights, if you see an animal in distress in a locked car? The Animal Legal Defense Fund, the nation’s preeminent legal advocacy organization for animals, has some tips.
- 1)If you see an animal in distress, call 911.
- 2)Know your state laws.
Calling 911 is the first step to saving that animal’s life. Most states allow a public safety officer to break into the car and rescue an animal if its life is threatened.
Although 29 states have some form of “hot car” law that prohibits leaving a companion animal unattended in a parked vehicle, the laws differ drastically from place to place:
· Only eight states — California, Colorado, Indiana, Massachusetts, Wisconsin, Florida, Ohio and Tennessee — have “Good Samaritan” laws that allow any person to break a car window to save a pet. Alabama and Arizona have bills pending.
· In six of those states — California, Florida, Massachusetts, Ohio, Tennessee and Wisconsin — “Good Samaritans” must first contact law enforcement before breaking into the car in order for their actions to be considered legal.
· In 19 states, only public officials such as law enforcement and humane officers can legally break into a car to rescue an animal (Arizona, California, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Vermont, Virginia and Washington).
· In New Jersey and West Virginia, although it is illegal to confine an animal in a hot car, no one has the authority to break into a vehicle to save the animal, not even law enforcement.
- 3)Let people know it’s not okay to leave their pet unattended in a car.
- 4)Get the message out with the Animal Legal Defense Fund sunshade
When an animal dies in a hot car, most of their humans say they left them “just for a minute.” If you see someone leave their animal in a parked car, tell them that even if it’s a pleasant day outside, the temperature inside the car can skyrocket fast. Cracking a window doesn’t eliminate the risk of heatstroke or death.
The Animal Legal Defense Fund has created sunshades that remind pet owners of the risks of leaving animals unattended in a car. The sunshades feature the message, “Warning: Don’t leave dogs in hot cars,” in lettering large enough to be readable from across a parking lot. It also urges people to call 911 if they find animals locked in a car and in distress. The sunshades are available at aldf.org/hotcars and all proceeds benefit the Animal Legal Defense Fund.

The Animal Legal Defense Fund was founded in 1979 to protect the lives and advance the interests of animals through the legal system. To accomplish this mission, the Animal Legal Defense Fund files high-impact lawsuits to protect animals from harm; provides free legal assistance and training to prosecutors to assure that animal abusers are punished for their crimes; supports tough animal protection legislation and fights harmful legislation; and provides resources and opportunities to law students and professionals to advance the emerging field of animal law.

From one of the country’s foremost doctors and now New York Times bestselling author comes a step-by-step plan for diagnosing, treating and healing Lyme and other chronic diseases.
HOW CAN I GET BETTER?
An Action Plan for Treating Resistant Lyme and Chronic Disease
Dr. Richard Horowitz
Since its release in the fall of 2013, Dr. Horowitz's groundbreaking text on Lyme and chronic disease Why Can’t I Get Better? has been an extraordinary success, selling close to 50,000 copies across formats to date with a media platform that is increasing every day. Now, in HOW CAN I GET BETTER?: An Action Plan for Treating Resistant Lyme and Chronic Disease (SMP OS February 14, 2017), a new handbook, he provides what everyone suffering desperately needs: a direct, actionable step by step plan for implementing his 16-point MSIDS Diagnostic Map in the treatment of Lyme and Chronic Disease, along with the research updates that guide his treatment and new stories pulled from his practice that show how healing is possible.
The ongoing debate over Lyme disease as a chronic illness has made it difficult for patients to find appropriate care, as they are often misdiagnosed with such diseases as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, an auto-immune disorder, or even a psychiatric condition. Meanwhile, answers are elusive and doctors knowledgeable in treating remain few. At the same time, the number of cases is growing astoundingly each year, reaching epidemic proportions. Specific and accessible, HOW CAN I GET BETTER? is an all-in-one source to guide doctors and patients alike in identifying symptoms and working together for the best possible treatment outcome.
RICHARD I. HOROWITZ is a board-certified MD specializing in Internal Medicine. He and his wife, Lee, founded the Hudson Valley Healing Arts Center in Hyde Park, New York, which has treated over 12,000 patients for tick-borne diseases over the past twenty-six years. Dr. Horowitz is known for his pioneering work with Lyme disease and is recognized to be one of the country’s foremost experts on chronic illness.

companion with a fighters spirit and the knack for diving. Taking a
state title for horizontal dock diving and ending up with the United
States Coast Guard with officer Scott Steel CDR as a cadaver dog.I was blessed to have her at my side for nearly 7 years. She was
