Well, I have had a cat (had two, one got deported for misbehaving), a dog (poor old Mitzie died five years ago, which has been very sad for us, but now we have Myah who is helping with reviews!) and two rabbits (I had one who met a very sad, untimely death in 2011, and then Daisy - who took over the reviewing - who had to be left behind when I moved to Michigan with the other critters to be with my wife!) and I love them the way most adults love their children. So, I like buying things for them and if you're the same way, I've found some great (and terrible) products for all my animals!
Before you check out the reviews, I heartily recommend understanding how I review pet products. While all of these reviews are in my blog, W.L. Swarts Reviews The Universe, as is my overall standard - My Reviewing Philosophy - I figured I'd take a moment to run through my criteria for how I review products for dogs, cats and rabbits.
All products I review to are evaluated on a ten point scale where 0 (zero) is something my animals hated through 10 (perfection, this is at the top of every animal's want list!). I start at zero and products work their way up to ten. What are the criteria I grade on? Pets products are a little more nebulous than some of my other reviews, but what I tend to look for is:
Effectiveness/Durability/Health Value - Does the product do what it promises to? How long does the product last? If it is a food, does it meet nutritional needs for animals?
Ease Of Use- Is the product easy-to-use?
Ease Of Cleaning - Is the product easy to clean and/or maintain?
Cost/Value - Is the price reasonable?
With those high standards, go forth and check out some pets products I have used! Enjoy!
