The fleas are all over the cat, who will scratch and bite if I approach with the flea comb.

I’m not even considering a bath and shampoo!

I guess you can clicker-train moggies to put up with almost anything, but this one will sniff and dither before deigning to accept a treat. Not like a dog who swallows everything on sight.

Oh, and he doesn’t like raw chicken. Only crunchy junk-food pellets.

The Confounding Power of God, The Christian and the Bible By Robin Calamaio {Guest Article}

To study the written words of the Bible is an objective exercise. The words are right there – in black and white. A Christian apologist is one who defends the Biblical record from internal – and external – assaults. “Apologist,” comes from a compound Greek word, “apologia” – “apo” (from) + “logos” (a word, or…

Hello, everyone!

I downloaded and navigated through this app, which is available for Apple and Android devices… It’s a MUST-HAVE  for all pet owners, and the cost is only $ .99.

PET FIRST AID BLOGWhat I found and love about this app… and why I recommend it:

  • Information for dogs and cats are separated into two sections
  • Both have an alphabetized table of contents to quickly and easily find information needed
  • Each topic contains subsections, details, and easy-to-follow instructions
  • Video demonstrations

Other functions:

  • Variety of categories such as Toxic Substances, Traveling with Pets, Giving Medication, Pet-friendly Hotels, Emergencies, etc.
  • You can add your pets’ information to have readily on-hand
  • Vet locator to find the closest emergency hospital, but also lists options for different vets in the area
  • Quizzes to test your knowledge and keep you informed
  • Assistance with Lost Pets
  • Many more helpful resources!!!!!

 

PLEASE NOTE:  The purpose of my posting information about this app is NOT a substitute for medical attention when your pet needs care or has an illness and/or emergency requiring treatment by a veterinarian!!! 

Empowering pet parents with the tools to seek out information and knowledge to immediately intervene may save your pet’s life on the way to receiving emergency treatment.

Foot Wax, Proper Care of Pads Makes Winter Easier on Dogs

Walking Kia around the neighborhood track was always a joy. We followed the same course each day and she was a happy chow mix – until the day she stopped mid walk and began whining and crying, She held her paws up and would not continue walking. At first glance, I saw no cuts or injury. But after removing my gloves and inspecting closer, I noticed ice had formed on the hair between her toes and was causing her pain. I rubbed her feet until they thawed and we headed back home.snow-dog

This winter much of the country has been experiencing record cold temperatures and snowfall. Many areas have seen temperatures drop to below zero with windchills at -25 to -40 degrees. This cold temperature is a danger to dogs and dog walkers.

Protecting a dog’s paws is essential in these conditions.

We all know that street salt can burn a dog’s pads and cause extreme pain. While pet-safe salt might be used on the driveway at a pet’s home, it can be hard to avoid on the street. When returning from a walk, sitters should thoroughly wash and dry a dog’s feet to remove the salt – protecting the paws and preventing the pet from licking and ingesting the salt.

A good solution to protect dog’s feet is to coat them with a paw wax in advance. The wax – similar to a petroleum jelly is a natural solution to keep dog paws soft and free of pain. There are several brands known as musher’s wax – invented for sled dogs in Canada.

Friends and customer’s introduced to the wax this year, report great success.

One customer reported having a problem this year because her dog Ellie was extremely sensitive to rock salt. Ellie was in pain on walks and didn’t want to go out.

“The Musher’s salve is fantastic!”  she reports. “Works wonders. Is made of all natural wax. No need to wash it off; just wipe with a soft cloth. Ellie went nuts, ran like crazy and pooped a ton.”dog(1)

Another customer, with a chihuahua found her pet did not want to go out this winter, until she started applying wax to her feet.

“It seems to help Poppins a lot. If I forget to put it on her, she starts to limp right away. If it is on, she leaps around and wants to stay out longer!” she said.

Dogs with longer hair between their toes, like Kia, should be groomed so the hair is clipped short to prevent ice build-up in this sensitive area.

The hair on feet should be kept even with the pads. Avoid cutting it too short or the fur won’t offer protection from the snow. To avoid trimming out too much hair, keep your scissors even with your dog’s pads and cut the hair that sticks out.

Today’s Walk

This pretty much sums things up.

Coulee found a ball so she kept dropping it at my feet and stared happily at me waiting for the throw.

It doesn’t matter if the throw never comes. She never loses her optimism.

And Lacey brought us dead body parts. This was a nice little bit of deer she decided to bring me.  I keep asking for flowers (heck I’d be happy with twigs!), but she never seems to listen.  ;)
