Online Shop Provides Veterinary Care for Pets | RemysBrands

Looking for a soothing, natural soak for your pets’ sore & stinky paws?

PawSoak, from RemysBrands, may be a great cure for your four-legged companions!

Created and owned by Dr. Melissa Jacobs, a small veterinarian, RemysBrands is an online shop and pet pharmacy that ships and sells veterinary-quality pet supplies to your door on time and safely.

Dr. Melissa shared,

“I am a strong believer in knowledgeable pet owners and well-cared-for pets. Typically, we also have an awesome online store for products for pets and for people who love pets. And that includes the online pharmacy that has veterinarian-recommended food supplements, non-prescription dental chews, even toys, things like that.”

 

Caring for Your Pets with PawSoak from RemysBrands

Developed by Dr. Melissa herself, PawSoak is a natural, Epsom salt-based blend that helps soothe the paws of pets with itchy skin.

According to the veterinarian-cum-online store owner herself, this is especially beneficial for pet owners whose pets suffer from an all-year-round condition that makes them get red, sore, stinky, and itchy paws.

It also helps soothe pododermatitis and other secondary infections in dogs and cats.

“As you can imagine, not all dogs and cats are amenable to spraying or dabbing stuff on their nails and toes. So, this is a product that was meant to be on the natural front, so it’s not full of antibiotics or steroids or anything medicated… It’s really part of that niche of non-medicated but soothing and actually helpful products.”

As the founder of an online pet website that features pet care and pet health, Dr. Melissa got the inspiration to develop PawSoak after finding nothing similar to offer for her clients and their pets.

“When I developed this, I have been listening to veterinary dermatologists recommend Epsom salts that might help pets’ paws. And I started looking around to offer something to my clients and their pets. And there wasn’t anything…really nothing for dogs and cats,”

she reminisced.

This, along with her scientific and professional background as a veterinarian, encouraged her to develop a product that means something and is actually helpful.

 

A Soothing Therapy With PawSoak

Essentially, what makes PawSoak different is that it’s a non-medicated blend providing a natural therapy for animal companions that lick or chew on their paws too much or too often.

Aside from red and sore paws, PawSoak also offers soothing relief for the following cases:

  • Athletic overuse
  • Dry paws
  • Insect bites
  • Irritated paws
  • Itching
  • Rashes

Using the highest quality of ingredients, the pure Epsom salt-based product also utilizes healing ingredients, like Colloidal Oatmeal and human-grade ingredients to ensure it’s safe for your dogs’ and cats’ paws.

In fact, Dr. Melissa happily shared,

“I’ve gotten some really positive feedback, where, for example, somebody from Discovery Bay, California said, ‘Usually, when I try to soak or treat my pets’ paws, they just chewed on them even more… And they didn’t with this one.’ So, I’ve started offering PawSoak on a wholesale level… My first batch just went to a…mobile veterinarian. And she said, ‘You know, I recommend Epsom salts all the time. It’s great to have an actual product meant for dogs and cats…’”

Considering the positive feedback Dr. Melissa has received for PawSoak, it won’t be a surprise if RemysBrands become pet parents’ go-to place for verified resources they can trust.

“I really hope we at RemysBrands can join pet guardians on that journey of taking care of their dogs and cats,”

Dr. Melissa said, closing the podcast.

Have suggestions for who we should interview next?

Send us a message at [email protected]!

Melissa:

I am Dr. Melissa Jacobs, and you’re tuned in to The Animal Innovations Show.

Chris:

Excellent job, Dr. Jacobs.

So, tell us who you are and how you’re innovating and helping animals.

Melissa:

I am the owner, creator, curator of RemysBrands.com—my website—and I also make and produce PawSoak.

So, RemysBrands.com is a website, where we really try to feature pet care and pet health.

I am a strong believer in knowledgeable pet owners and well-cared-for pets.

So, this website has a veterinary author, pet health care as a monthly blog, typically.

We also have an awesome online store for products for pets and for people who love pets.

That includes an online pharmacy that has veterinary-recommended food supplements, non-prescription level dental chews, even toys—things like that.

And then PawSoak, which is a natural, soothing Epsom Salts-based blend to help all those pets with itchy, red, sore, stinky feet.

Chris:

It sounds like that’s a thing.

Tell me a little bit more about PawSoak.

I mean, you obviously developed this. You’re the one that—as you said, the curator, the founder, all of those things.

So, talk a little bit more about what PawSoak does and what is the condition that you’re trying to help with.

Melissa:

PawSoak is Epsom salts mixed with blender, including colloidal oatmeal, cumin-grade products but blended and designed for pet’s paws—cat and dog paws.

As a veterinarian, I have a tremendous amount of visits from pet owners who are just either desperate or annoyed to the point of exasperation, that all night their pet was just licking or chewing on those paws.

So, there’s a pretty frequent condition that comes out—I mean all-year-round, but especially with allergy season for pets—that they just get these red sore, stinky, itchy paws.

Sometimes, they’ll get these secondary infections. So, there’s a condition called pododermatitis that really can be difficult to treat.

And as you can imagine, not all dogs and cats are amenable to spraying or dabbing stuff on their nails and toes.

So, this is a product that was meant to be on the natural front, so it’s not full of antibiotics or steroids or anything medicated.

Try to find that niche of non-medicated but soothing and actually helpful products.

Chris:

So, take us back to the point where you decided I got all this knowledge, I got this information.

God paused up like, “I need to do more. I need to have a portal. I need to have a place.”

Take us back to the time where you decide to start running this brand.

Melissa:

I’m a mom. I have a son who just turned 9,  and RemysBrands.com really came out of the time of hitting that summer, and the start of the 2nd year of my son being 100% at home distance learning.

And at the time I was a full-time veterinarian and out of the home four to five days a week.

So, I really was struggling and wanting to be there for him, support him, but also still being able to have a business and support our home,  help the portion of supporting the home with my husband.

So, I moved to part-time, and RemysBrands.com really came out of a time where I said, “I need to find better work from home that makes sense for me.”

And so that really was a combination of being a veterinarian, being a mom, and wanting and needing to support my son more in his distance-learning at school.

Chris:

So, what’s your vision? Where do you see this going?

I’m sure you’ve got big plans for this.

Melissa:

I’d like to see veterinarians believe and support this product and something that they can have on their shelves.

With COVID and most veterinarians being curbside still, they don’t have a lot of people in their lobbies or shopping around their little stores or entrance ways. But it’s certainly something that I think has a place in pet boutique stores, and groomers, even just using it as part of what they do, to help bathe and heal dogs and cats.

And just something that people can reach for online, as far as something that is helpful to their pet.

I’d like to see Remy’s Brands as a site where veterinarians send their clients to say, “Hey, there’s a really good article that you should read about this issue that you have at home,” and just as a resource that is more trustworthy than Doctor Google for pets and veterinary care.

Chris:

Well, Dr. Jacobs, this has been really interesting to learn about you and your background and what you’re doing with PawSoak.

Is there anything else you want to mention before we wrap things up today?

Melissa:

We’ve got a pet pharmacy. That is the veterinary-quality stuff you would take off  your veterinarian shelves, and you can get that delivered safely to your home.

RemysBrands.com is kind of that overall place to go, as your portal to all of that.

Chris:

We’ll make sure that we link and, obviously, let people know about it.

And as I’m wrapping up here, I’ll just remind our viewers and listeners, if you’ve got a great innovative idea, like Dr. Jacobs did, or know somebody that does, just go to INNOVATIONS.SHOW and let us know about it.

We’d love to have them on and talk about it.

So, Dr. Jacobs, thank you again. Really enjoyed our conversation today.

Melissa:

Thank you, Chris. Great to be here. I really enjoyed it.
