Happytails Fur Butter and Sleepytime Tonic: VITACOST Pet Product Review

This post is a product review of HAPPYTAILS FUR BUTTER available from the online retailer Vitacost. FUR BUTTER is for use following your dog's regular shampoo. It's a spa treatment for doggies!

Tootsie's Mom here: This product is really lovely! I washed Tootsie and then applied this butter almost like a spa treatment after her regular shampoo. It smells beautiful but not too aromatic. It's perfect for a little down low doggy.

The FUR BUTTER is super easy to apply and spreads on very nicely. I just buttered up my whole little sausage dog. Tootsie did great with the extra treatment after her regular shampoo, too.

I let the FUR BUTTER sit on her fur for a while (the directions say 5-10 minutes, but we didn't quite make it that long). And then the FUR BUTTER washes easily off.

Again, FUR BUTTER smells great! And best of all: Tootsie's fur is softer than ever before. Plus she seems to be itching a lot less. After our last intercontinental flight, I noticed that Tootsie's fur and skin seemed awfully dry and flaky. It's hard to keep her hydrated with such long travel. Since using the FUR BUTTER, though, she has stopped scratching her back.

Here is Tootsie all buttered up with FUR BUTTER.

And here is Tootsie all dried off after her spa treatment.

Even Grandpa says, "Tootsie's fur feels extra soft and luxurious!" Tootsie ran around after her bath and then snuggled in for a rest.

Vitacost -- a discount store to "take the cost out of healthy living" -- also sent us this HAPPYTAILS SLEEPYTIME TONIC for Truffle to try. I tried the tonic on Truffle, because he's really aging and starts to squeak. It's hard to tell, sometimes, if he's sore and aching or if he's just betwixted and between. Either way, Truffle squeaks.

The SLEEPYTIME TONIC really seemed to help calm Truffle down.

Truffle loves the taste. He smacks his lips when you drop the liquid into his mouth. I didn't have any problem squeezing the tonic directly directly into his mouth.

I'll keep trying it this week, but I notice the first few days that the SLEEPYTIME TONIC seems to help him feel calmer.

Thank you, VITACOST, for letting us review these products! Please visit their online store.


  1. Can't wait to try the Fur butter. Thanks for sharing.

  2. We would hate Fur butter cause we hate anything that makes us smell good - but our Lady says the sleepy time tonic may be just what Lee needs! Have a good one. Lee and Phod

  3. I wonder if it would be good for humans to! lol! I have hair problems! =)

    1. My mom loves Vitacost and orders lots of dog treats and nice healthy things for herself, but she didn't know about Fur Butter... 2. Tootsie looks very soft and beautiful indeed. And since she looks exactly like me, that's a high compliment! 3. I think I'm okay with smelling good. Sometimes. So we're ordering both. :-) Have a happy 4th of July!
