As we say goodbye to Summer and get ready for holiday shopping…wait, what? Sorry-that was just plain mean to make you think about that.  Try again-as we say goodbye to Summer, we invite you to listen to some archived shows.  We are “Doing the Cha and Phil” and enjoying the last bit of Summer that we have.

Why is it that we wait all year for 2 months and they go by in the blink of an eye?  Have a great Labor Day Weekend.  Stay safe and we will see you on September 5th.

The Love Genies-Relationship experts for people with pets. Reducing stress in relationships, Part II

 

 

The Love Genies are relationship experts especially for people with pets.  We all need a little relationship help now and again.  Robbin and Joe will help you out!

The Love Genies talk about  reducing stress-Part II in show 105.  Below is a recap of the conversation.  Tune into the show to hear the whole conversation.

Last week we talked about taking the stress out of your relationships.  Loving someone without an expectation is the first step.  Now, lets go one step further.  You need to get to the point where you don’t care.  You need to love and not care.  Do you worry if your dog is lying in the grass or squeaking his toys?  No-no expectation.  Do you care if your friend is hooking up with the wrong guy?  Yes, because you don’t want her or him to get hurt and you don’t want to listen to the whining when it doesn’t work out.  Think differently and set parameters.

So set the expectation a little differently then you had before.  Everyone needs to have his or her own life.  Living his or her own life, making his or her own mistakes.  Love but don’t get all caught up in the drama.  It’s not easy, but it is freeing, once you get there.  Make up your mind and make it happen.  You need to distress your mind and let go of the things you can’t control.

This doesn’t mean you don’t love someone.  It just means you don’t care about the minutia and you love someone enough to make peace with his or her choices good or bad.

Protection Plus from PetCareRx-Review and HUGE Giveaway

Protection Plus from PetCareRx-Review and HUGE Giveaway

It’s so hard to get everything done that you need to do during the week.  There is just never enough time!  Like many paw-parents, our “to do” list is long and arduous.  So, when we reviewed a new program, designed to save time and money on pet meds, we were psyched. Checking one task off of the list! Yes!

Protection Plus  is a discount drug and preventative medicine program for dogs and cats.  You pay a monthly membership fee starting of $9.99 or as little as $0.25/day with an annual plan and you get access to deeply discounted medicine for your pets.  This includes preventatives like flea/tick topicals and heartworm medications.

Here is a little video we made about Protection Plus-(look at cute Cha is in her Smurfy dress!)


Will My Pet Be Accepted Into Protection Plus Plan?

All dogs and cats are eligible – no exclusions!  It’s not a problem if your pet has pre-existing conditions, because it’s a membership program.  We believe this program is going to help save animal’s lives and keep them happy and healthy in their homes longer.  How many stories have you heard about people who couldn’t afford medication for their pet, so they gave them up?  This is the affordable and convenient solution to an issue plaguing pet owners since the dawn of time: paying top dollar for pet meds and making an extra trip to the vet to pick them up.

Signing Up

It only takes a few minutes to sign up and fill in your pet’s info.  It couldn’t be easier.  You can print out a temporary membership card for your pets and start ordering right away.

Placing An Order

Protection Plus will contact your pet’s vet and get the prescription for you, or you can mail your pet’s prescription to them.  So it’s a no hassle, no stress process.  When you place your order, you can have the filled prescription mailed to your home for free – no minimum order size or you can pick up the drug at a “human” pharmacy. The plan gives you the choice, if it is available for your pet’s prescription, when you place your order.

There are over 60,000 local pharmacies like CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, and Target in the plan! Check it out and see if there is a participating location near you with this link.-Protection Plus Pharmacy Locator

Protection Plus carries tons of different medications.  One of the most common and costly medicines is Novolin Insulin for pets with diabetes.  You can buy it through Protection Plus, for  $20 compared to $100 at other sources – that’s 80% off!  They also carry cancer meds like Leukeran- for 74% off retail, and  Novox, a generic of Rimadyl, for arthritis and joint pain for 69% off.

Get Other Discounts Too

There are other discounts too including:

– Veterinary services through Pet Assure,

-Boarding and daycare through DogVacay.com,

-Vaccinations through Paws Plus Clinics.

You also have access to Lost Pet Recovery Services through Pet Assure and you receive a 15% discount for all purchases on Petcarerx.com .

Is This The Real Stuff?

Buy with confidence! You are getting the authentic medicine with Protection Plus, not some shady gallon of flea and tick discount stuff from a foreign country.  C’mon, we all have cheap friends that told us about one of those fantastic deals.

Tell All Of Your Pet Loving Friends

We need to get the word out about this program.  It’s really going to help a lot of people and pets. One of our friends is still paying off bills from her poor cat that had cancer and we have another acquaintance that was paying huge money for insulin for his dog.  We can remember him saying the insulin cost $100 a pop.

The Protection Plus Plan is going to change the lives of pet owners, making it more affordable for people to keep their pets and provide them a long, healthy and happy life.

Paws Rating: Protection Plus!  It gets 4 Paws Up!

The Love Genies, relationship advice for people with pets, reducing stress in relationships

The Love Genies, relationship advice for people with pets, reducing stress in relationships.

Take the stress out of a "ruff "day!

Take the stress out of a “ruff “day!

In episode 104, relationship guru’s The Love Genies, talking about taking the stress out of relationships.  Below is a synopsis of what was discussed by the dynamic duo, Robbin and Joseph Everett.  To listen to the conversation, tune into episode 104.

Reducing Stress- Love but don’t care

When you walk in the door and your dog or cat sees you, they show a sign of happiness.  Whether it’s wagging  their tail or purring, your pets love you.  It’s basically a low stress relationship because the expectations are clearly outlined.

To love more, we need to drop the expectation in our relationship and let people live their lives.  Not being able to control the actions of others is  a huge source of stress in many relationships.

It is hard to take this, “I’,m as Zen as my dog or cat” attitude. So think about it…you can’t control what you can’t control, so why stress out about it.  Carrying the stress around is like carrying around a ton of bricks.  It’s tiring and it wears on you every minute of every day.

Carrying that kind of stress in your body is exhausting.  Before you know it, you don’t feel good and all you want to do is sit in bed with a pint of Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey.  You forget where you are and you lose who you are.  Your mind isn’t clear and your heart is heavy.

And what did you change?  Nothing!  Nothing at all.

So love and care are two different things….stay tuned for part 2
