3.0 out of 5 stars This is NOT 100% cotton, October 21, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Love the colors, but this isn't 100% cotton. The filling is a mix of polyester and cotton. There's more polyester in the sham's filling than the quilt's.

I'm very disappointed that the "world's greatest catalog" once again proves to be anything but.

As of this writing, nothing on the product's detail page mentions polyester.

1.0 out of 5 stars Will not fit iPad Air 2, January 27, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Product title states that it's for the new iPad Air. It isn't. It's for the first iPad Air.

As this is January 2015, the "new" iPad Air is the iPad Air 2. The camera on the back is occluded by this product.

2.0 out of 5 stars Product contains sugar., December 10, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Under ingredients we find "Nielsen Massey". Obviously not an ingredient. The only Nielsen Massey vanilla with which I'm familiar (and I'm hardly an expert on vanilla) doesn't contain sugar. I was very disappointed to receive this and find that it contained sugar.

This product page needs ingredients. All food products need ingredients.

That so many grocery products for sale here on Amazon do NOT have ingredients listed says that either Amazon doesn't care about their product catalog and whether food products listed on their site are being displayed correctly, that Amazon's catalog team is overworked, or the catalog team is lazy. Or that Amazon is so greedy they care more about the quantity of items for sale than accuracy.

And a disclaimer on the product page noting that there may be differences in what you purchase and what's displayed on the page isn't good enough.

There should never be differences in what you purchase based on the information provided. Never.

5.0 out of 5 stars The product is excellent, September 1, 2014
There aren't many meats healthier for your dog than tripe. If cats would eat tripe (and some do!) it would be fantastic for them.

I was delighted to see a manufacturer making tripe bones again. It's not a real "bone" - it's raw tripe that's been compressed to chew like a bone.

I've used these bones, and my dogs love them. They eat an all raw diet, so I'm very conscious about the treats I feed them. I've got one dog for whom the 3" bone is perfect, and another for whom the 6" bone is perfect.

If you have a dog with a very strong bite, these won't last as long as you might hope, but I like using them because it's all tripe. Nothing added. (Last I checked) Bully sticks are great, they're natural, but there's always a concern regarding where they were sourced.

Don't let the 1-star review confuse you. That review was critical of a title that appears to have been on the product page three years ago. Amazon should remove that review, as the reviewer isn't reviewing the product.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hardly original, April 15, 2014
I have nothing but contempt for companies that can't think / create for themselves and instead rely on copying the hard work of others.

Notice the word "forever" isn't in the title. That's because it isn't nearly as sturdy as the product it aspires to be: The Forever Tray. Sold here on Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pet owners - you're gonna love this stuff!!, June 13, 2010
I was very skeptical regarding the efficacy of this product but am delighted to report my skepticism was misplaced. All I can say is - WOW.

Nature's Miracle, Simple Solution - all of those products that come in big. heavy gallon jugs, cost a fortune (especially when you consider what you're cleaning up - doesn't it just bug the daylights out of you to spend upwards of $20 - $30 a gallon just to clean up urine?), and take up much-needed storage space - are replaced by this one product that weighs ounces. Twelve two-packs, enough for 6 gallons of product, take up less space than a single gallon jug.

We have hard surfaces and five animals, three cats and two dogs. One dog is 16yrs old and a little senile; another a puppy. Between the two of them alone there's plenty of cleanup to do.

To use, fill the empty container (included with Fizzion Concentrated Cleaner (32 oz)) or another sturdy 32oz spray bottle with warm water. The tablets dissolve faster in warm water. Once they've dissolved, it's ready for use.

This product has cleaned up vomit, feces, blood and urine. It cleans the messes and doesn't leave any scent behind, with the exception of light `fresh linen' scent.

I've started using it when changing the cat litter, spraying both the Forever Tray and the Scoop Free Litter Box. Previously we used Clorox wipes, then Urine-Off wipes, but those have been replaced by a less expensive - and for my money, more efficient - solution.

Cat urine is the most difficult smell to get rid of. Yet after only a few sprays of Fizzion, the litter box - from the Forever Tray to the Scoop Free unit and it's hood - smells fresh-out-of-the-box new.

So this product:
- Won't break the bank
- Won't break your back
- Won't irritate your olfactory senses with an overpowering smell
- WILL clean up bood, urine, feces, and vomit more effectively and with less expense than any other

ZiwiPeak 'Good-Dog' Chews, Deer Antler - Large
ZiwiPeak 'Good-Dog' Chews, Deer Antler - Large

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific, natural product - perfect for small to mid-size dogs, May 16, 2010
When I say small dog, I should qualify that by saying my 9-pound Yorkie prefers ZiwiPeak's Small Antler ZiwiPeak 'Good-Dog' Chews, Deer Antler - Small, but that his 12-pound predecessor, a Yorkie-Maltese mix, preferred the Large.

Other reviewers have commented on this not being a 'Large' antler, and if you're comparing this to a 10-12" Buckarooz Monster Antler, well, there's really no comparison. I wouldn't give the ZiwiPeak Large antler to an 85-pound pit bull. That dog could have the Monster sized antler.

What I've read regarding the size of the antlers is that they are assigned into their size category by weight, not by size.

Small < 30 grams (1.0582 oz)
Medium < 45 grams (1.5873 oz)
Large < 70 grams (2.4692 oz)

How does that compare to other antlers? I have several Buckarooz lying around, so can weigh them.

The 10-12" Monster I mentioned weighs 10.6 ounces. The 4-5" Monster weighs 5 ounces and the 6-7" Regular weighs 2.2 ounces.

What's the advantage here? I admit to not knowing how antlers are 'made', but the ZiwiPeak antler is clearly a more natural product than other antlers. While natural doesn't always equate to better (cyanide is a derivative of the peach pit), in the limited framework of our discussion I believe natural is better. Just as ZiwiPeak's food is as close to raw as you can get in a bag or a can, with the antler you're getting something your dog might have snagged had he/she happened along a fallen deer in the forest and swiped off a bit.

I love that the antlers aren't smoothed or buffed like other brands. Not that there's anything wrong with smooth or buff <grin> but my guys seems to like the naturally occurring ridges.

And yes, because ZiwiPeak uses the whole rack there are antlers that have more exposed marrow. That's not necessarily a bad thing. True, marrow is rich, and for some dogs that may not be a good thing. But most dogs that have been fed a diet with the appropriate balance of protein and fat (see Unlocking the Canine Ancestral Diet: Healthier Dog Food the ABC Way for a great discussion on the importance of fat in a canine's diet) should find that marrow a welcome addition to their diet.

Resvantage - The Resveratrol Longevity Supplement (30 count)
Resvantage - The Resveratrol Longevity Supplement (30 count)

5.0 out of 5 stars You won't find a better Resveratrol supplement anywhere, October 4, 2009
Resveratrol works. Of that I have no doubt.

Studies touting astonishing results have been coming out for years and I've waited for a study (or studies) to come out that says, "Well, we've been duped; another miracle supplement that fell apart on closer examination," but that hasn't happened. Closer examination of resveratrol has done nothing but strengthen/support earlier reports of resveratrol's uses and researchers continue to find MORE uses for resveratrol.

The problem with using resveratrol as a supplement is that the resveratrol molecule is extremely volatile and susceptible to oxidation. There is very little bioavailable resveratrol in supplements that come in a powdered form or a liquid drink, or that claim "red wine extract" as their source of resveratrol .

That's frustrated me. I've wanted to take resveratrol for years, but the manufacturing processes of even the leading supplement companies leave so little bioavailable resveratrol, not to mention ridiculously high costs, that I never took the plunge.

Until, that is, I came across Resvantage. You may look at the dosage - 15 milligrams - and wonder how that can help when other supplements claim as much as 200 milligrams or more. It's pretty simple. Resvantage is encapsulated by the Capsugel division of Pfizer in an oxygen-free, nitrogen rich environment using their patented Licaps process. The Licaps methodology insures that Resvantage is protected from typical losses in potency found in other products both during the encapsulation process and after the product has been packaged.

The capsules are also liquid filled. Other supplements (tablets, powder, powder-filled capsules, drinks) are inefficient and low in bioavailability and pass through the body with very little being absorbed, regardless of how much resveratrol is claimed to be in the product. Resvantage combines a lipid and an emulsifier to improve absorption, and they also use a milling process called micronization which increases the surface area of the resveratrol crystal.

The greater bioavailability *means smaller dose requirements and improved therapeutic effect*.

Finally - a resveratrol supplement we can trust! If you're using any other form of resveratrol, you're not getting the full effect. Toss out whatever it is you're using and try this stuff. I did, and I couldn't be happier.

They also make Canine and Feline formulas. I started giving Resvantage Canine to my fifteen-and-a-half year old dog and noticed changes within a week. Her sight improved, her hearing improved, she doesn't wander into a room and forget where she is - the list goes on. And that's just one week.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strong liver support, September 21, 2009
There are dozens of reasons that a person might want added support for their liver. After all, the liver is the largest organ in the body and performs over 500 functions. The liver needs to be functioning at optimal efficiency at all times and this product, a mix of whole food vitamins and minerals derived from unique, organic sources, and containing Protomorphogen (liver) and Cytosol (adrenal) extracts, is what I count on to keep mine in tip-top shape.

I'll admit to a certain amount of nervousness when this was recommended by my chiropractor, especially with the glandular extracts. But after reading up on the product and watching a DVD that details Standard Process's top-notch production facilities and peerless quality control, that discomfort faded. I'm glad it did! I saw AST and ALT levels drop over the period of a month or so, with nothing else added or subtracted from my regimen. Not that they were alarmingly high, but I prefer things like blood tests that measure the efficacy of my liver to return results in the normal range, not the high-normal range.

It's nice to know that if I need to step it up a notch, Standard Process has another product, Standard Process Hepatrophin PMG 90 Tablets, a supplement that is a 100% liver PMG extract, much as Standard Process Renatrophin PMG 90 Tablets is a kidney PMG extract.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highest quality 'glandular' kidney extract on the market, September 21, 2009
This product contains Standard Process's patented Protomorphogen (PMG) kidney extract, an extract derived from nucleoprotein-mineral molecules.

While this is decidedly a product in Standard Process's 'human' line, as a glandular extract it can also be used in animals. We have a cat diagnosed with early kidney failure and since starting to use this product and Standard Process Renafood 90 Tabletsadjunctively with Standard Process Feline Renal Support 60 T we've seen her downgraded from early kidney failure to kidney impairment.

Having seen what it can do in cats, if (salt over shoulder) I should ever have problems with my own kidneys, I would use this and Renafood in a heartbeat.
