Get ready to #SmoochUrPooch

I am being compensated for helping spread the word about TropiClean Dental Products, but MetamorFit only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. TropiClean is not responsible for the content of this article.


Matthew, the #bigyellowdog loves to give all of us big, giant, wet, sloppy kisses. The kids don't seem to mind, and for the most part, neither do I. And I know that many of my dog loving friends also love to share smooches with their furry four legged friends.

Except for one thing.

Dog Breath.

Matthew does not have any poor dental hygiene or any indication of dental disease. However, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats show signs of periodontal disease by age three. Matthew is almost 3, but his Vet is always telling me Matthew has great looking teeth and gums.

So doggy breath? What gives? Why does he have it, and how can I fix it?

My husband's hypothesis...get ready for it, it's a gross one.

Toilet water.

Yup. Toilet water. The #TampaTrio are not good with flushing their toilet. On more than one occasion I hear Matthew drinking out of the toilet, only to go in and discover that it's a toilet bowl filled with trio pee. DISGUSTING. I'm working with them on either remembering to flush, or at least put the lid back down, but for so long we've ingrained the "if it's yellow let it mellow" train of thought for water conservation that it's apparently a hard habit to break.

Over the course of the next few weeks I'm going to be talking with you about the great products available through Tropiclean.


Tropiclean are wholesome products made to be non-invasive and an easy way to keep your dog’s teeth clean at home between cleanings with the Vet. 

We’ll be trying out products like TropiClean Water AdditiveTropiClean Dental Chews, and the Clean Teeth and Gums Gel. “We strive to use high quality ingredients produced by nature and sourced in the United States,” says TropiClean. We’ll be learning more about those natural ingredients and sharing what we learn in the coming weeks.

You can learn more about TropiClean on their website on Facebook and Twitter.

And I'm super hopeful that this can help Matthew with his toilet doggy breath!

Do you have a dental routine for your pet?

The Tampa Bay Bloggers were recently invited to come out to the California Pizza Kitchen to sample some of their new menu items and to get a look at their new and improved design! Photo Credit RunDMT They were all ready for us!   They had a table of drinks ready, including California Roots, Blueberry Ginger Smash, and a kid friendly, Strawberry Mango Cooler. My favorite, hands down, was the California Roots. Made with Svedka Vodka, fresh avocado and mint, fresh Agave Sour with a fennel s... [More]

The #TampaTrio go to College #StartingisBelieving

The following post is sponsored by Florida Prepaid. I received no monetary compensation and all thoughts are my own. It sounds like a great title for a fiction book, doesn't it? The Tampa Trio go to college. But I'm hopeful that it won't be a fiction novel. Having 3 children only 30 months apart in age (all singletons) means that I will have 3 children in college AT THE SAME TIME. Ouch. My husband and I also chose to have our children a bit later in life, so our kids will be hitting college when... [More]
