Celebrating Military Family Appreciation Month #sponsored #MetLifeTDP

Did you know that November is National Military Family Appreciation Month? If you know a friend, neighbor or relative in the military, this is a great time to let them know how thankful you are for their service as well how much you appreciate the service and sacrifices of their whole family.

Woof Woof Papa served in the US Army and did 2 active duty deployments, so as the wife of an Army veteran, I can tell you that a day doesn’t go by without me taking time to be thankful for his safe return. It was a difficult time having him away, and there was lots to worry about with his safety, and taking care of things at home while he was gone.

One thing that I really appreciate NOT to have to stress out about during those tough times was health care. That’s because active duty service members AND their families are eligible for a special program called the TRICARE Health Plan, which also includes the opportunity to enroll in the TRICARE Dental Program.

About MetLife TRICARE Dental for Military Families

MetLife TRICARE Dental provides dental benefits to spouses and children of Active Duty personnel and National Guard and Reserve members and their families. It’s ideal for military families because it is a convenient and cost effective way for families to have continuous dental coverage despite changes in life events, geographical locations, or military status. Regardless of where a military family is located, coverage can be accessed from the large network of dental providers worldwide.

Families enrolled in the TRICARE Dental Program are eligible for low cost premiums, free annual exams, and discounts on orthodontist services. As I’m sure you do, I place a high value on my families health and well-being, so I think you’ll really appreciate how cost effective, flexible, and easily accessible the program is.

The holiday season has begun…or as Daisy and I like to call it, the “hinting season” when we like to leave notes, photos from magazines and other hints telling Woof Woof Papa what we want for Christmas. If you are looking for some great gift ideas that the whole family can enjoy, be sure to check Best Buy, a great Holiday Shopping Destination this Holiday (Hinting) Season.

One family gift that we don’t need to hint about is a new TV for the living room. We are all on the same page about that one and we’ve been doing our research. We’re super excited about the new LG OLED TV at Best Buy.

Some things in life defy all explanation and must be experienced to be believed. Such is the case with LG’s latest display technology. With deeper and richer colors, stunning contrast and ingeniously curved screens, it is unlike any technology you’ve ever seen, and it delivers a picture that exceeds your wildest imagination.

It’s only 0.21″ thick at its thinnest point, with spectacular picture quality and infinite contrast that ranges from the most blazing whites to the deepest blacks. And, LG’s exclusive 4 Color Pixel technology delivers bright, vibrant colors.

And if all that’s not enough, the best part is that right now you can save $500.  You don’t have to wait to fight the crowds on Black Friday.  Best Buy’s price is $3499.

One way we’re doing this is by using TropiClean’s Water Additive. It’s a super easy daily maintenance routine, as simple as just pouring a cap-full of the natural solution into Daisy’s water bowl.

Fashion the frugal way!

Not too long ago, I showed you the super CUTE pair of glasses that I got online from Firmoo.com.

And their glasses are super inexpensive so you can change up your look without breaking your budget!

I recently got a second pair from Firmoo because even though I usually wear contact lenses, it’s always a smart idea to have a couple of good-looking backup pairs of eyeglasses. This is the new pair I got:

dental gel dog review

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, Daisy and I have been testing some dental health products for dogs from Tropiclean. We’re working with them to help spread the word about the importance of healthy teeth for dogs.

Did you know that 80% of dogs show signs of periodontal disease by age three? Daisy turned four this year and her vet says her teeth look great. We plan to keep them that way for a long time to come, because left untreated, oral disease can seep into the blood stream and cause serious health risks for your pets. Bad breath is often one of the first signs of oral disease and should not be ignored.

In addition to brushing and scheduling regular veterinary exams for your fur kids, you can also add a simple dental solution from Tropiclean to help remove plaque and tarter for a healthier mouth you will love to smooch! When it comes to clean teeth and fresh breath, we like the extra help we get from Tropiclean Fresh Breath Clean Teeth Gel. You just apply a few drops directly to your dog’s teeth.

daisy clean teeth gel

It’s recommended that you start by using the gel once daily. You’ll notice your pet licking their lips repeatedly after application. This is normal and helps the gel to mix with saliva and coat all surfaces of your pet’s teeth and gums. Ordinarily, after 30 days, application can be reduced to twice weekly for regular maintenance.

Reasons to Use Clean Teeth Gel for Dogs
  • Removes plaque & tartar
  • Works fast and naturally to help reduce plaque and tartar
  • A proprietary blend of natural, holistic ingredients produce a healthy oral environment
  • Kills the germs that cause bad breath, plaque and gingivitis
  • Soothes minor gum irritations
  • Clean teeth and ‘up close’ fresh breath everyday!

If you’d like to learn more, be sure to check out the results of the Clinical Trials for the Fresh Breath Clean Teeth Gel. Pretty impressive and validates the positive feedback we’ve heard from other pet parents about their own experiences. Visit Tropiclean their website, on Facebook and Twitter.
