#SafeHowlOween Twitter Party
Sponsor Profile: @BalancedCanine

by Carrie Boyko, CEB

My friends over at Dogtipper and I have been putting our email to the test. We're probably at a hundred rounds or more and finally have all the i's dotted and the t's crossed. Maybe. What I am sure of is that we have great prizes and wonderful sponsors. Read on to find out how you can save on as an All Things Dog Blog reader, with our Twitter Party sponsors.

Today I'm profiling  one of our Twitter Party sponsors, @BalancedCanine, or The Balanced Canine, the online persona of Dr. Mark Nunez. Dr. Mark is the Ask the Vet columnist for All Things Dog Blog and writes his own blog at The Balanced Canine. He's also an avid student of dog behavior and owns an online veterinary pharmacy. You've probably seen plenty of these sites, but how many of these can you say you're a personal Twitter follower of? You'll find his door always open 24/7 for your shopping convenience at

I just dropped in on Dr. Nunez to check out his store. I found the CET Chews that Oliver uses to keep his teeth clean. I like these because they are without the same hazards of regular rawhide chews. These chews are treated with an enzyme that not only helps keep his teeth cleaner, but also assists with the digestion process, to assure that Fido doesn't have any large portions passing through undigested. And also important, Oliver loves them!

My experience at Dr. Nunez's pharmacy was quick and painless. What did I like best? The search function found what I was looking for on the first try, and I was impressed to see that I can set up auto-ship to assure that I never run out of a product. That's perfect when dealing with important medications that must remain on schedule. I really like this feature.
I also love the 15% discount I got for being a Twitter follower. I simply entered the code "fans" in the white box at checkout, and the discount automatically recalculated, giving me my savings on the spot.

You can do this too. The discount code "fans" and 15% off continues through October, 2012, as Dr. Nunez's special goes on for his All Things Dog Blog readers. Drop in and see what's there. I'm sure you'll discover something that your pup already uses. Enjoy the savings and we hope to see you at the #SafeHowlOween Twitter Party.

Dr. Mark will be doubling as our guest expert at the Twitter Party, answering questions that readers have submitted about Halloween safety for our Fidos. Got a question for Dr. Mark?
