Eliminate Vs Nature’s Miracle Stain and Odor Remover

We put these 2 products to the test.  I was a customer who used Natures Miracle because that is all I knew of.  But the same problem always occured.  No matter how many times I cleaned the spot where my dog kept peeing, she kept going on the same spot.  I began to explore diffrent products and I came across a product called Eliminate.

Not only did the Eliminate smell like (Apples) a much better smell to clean your home with then the natures miracle.  But my dog finally stopped going on that spot that I kept using the natures miracle on.  I was thrilled!  Not to mention the gallon size eliminate is also cheaper then the natures miracle gallon size bottle.

Applying Frontline Flea & Tick Control On Your Dog or Cat

 

Frontline provides long lasting flea and tick control. Frontline products for dogs and cats are highly effective and easy-to-use.

Frontline kills Fleas for an entire month. It comes in a 3 month supply or a 6 month supply. It is a bit more expensive then other flea products that are on the market but this one works the best.

Frontline is also waterproof. You can take your dog swimming and bath them and not have to worry about applying more applications wich can become costly.

This product is also gentil enough to use on puppies and kittens 8 weeks of age and older without weight restrictions.

Frontline Plus is available in one dosing size for cats but is administered according to the weight of your dog in four dosing sizes: up to 22 lbs., 23–44 lbs., 45–88 lbs., and 89–132 lbs.

Applying is easy:

frontline

Start by giving the dog a bath. It is important that his/her fur is nice and clean so the Frontline is sticking to the dog, not dirt. The fur should also be free of mats so take care of any grooming issues your pet might have. Pretty much you want your dog to be nice and clean and to have a nice coat. Flea shampoo is not necessary.

It is very important that your dog is completely dry before you apply the Frontline so doing this the day before is a good idea.

Next

: Remove applicator from child-resistant package. Use scissors, or lift and remove plastic tab to expose foil, then peel down.

Open applicator. Hold upright and snap applicator tip away from face and body.

After opening the vial, part your dog’s fur right between his shoulder blades and squeeze it all in. You want it all to be in one spot, it will spread out over the dog by itself.

It is important to get it down to the skin so it doesn’t just roll off. The good news is that it is pretty forgiving so don’t worry too much if it goes on kind weird.

And that’s it, you are done.

What You Need To Know To Care For Your Ferret.

Image Hosted by PixsUP.com

Ferrets are friendly and make excellent pets. If you’ve never met one before, the easiest way to think of them is somewhere between cats and dogs in personality, but a lot smaller. Some are cuddly, others more independent; they vary a lot, just like other pets. They are very playful, and they don’t lose much of that playfulness as they get older. They are also very intelligent, inquisitive and remarkably determined, which is part of their charm but can also be a bit of a bother. They do know and love you, though for some of them it can take a few months to bond.
A few things you should look for when chosing your ferret:

Look for healthy, active ferrets in suitable enclosures that are clean and odour free.

Eyes should be bright, clean, even sized, and free from discharge.

They should have long, full whiskers. Short or broken whiskers may indicate poor nutrition or infections.

The coat should be soft, full, and clean.

The kits should have a long, muscular, athletic body. They should also have a large firm belly.

They should be playful, and gentle.

They should also be curious and not fearful of new things.
Companion ferrets do not have to be purchased together. An adult ferret will readily accept another adult or kit. It is not advisable however, to house a male ferret that has not yet been neutered, with other ferrets unless the intention is to breed as they become territorial during the breeding season and may kill the other ferrets

Ferrets are very social animals and prefer the company of people or another ferret rather than being alone. They can share the house with dogs and cats but should be carefully watched when together
Ferrets are very inquisitive and mischievous animals that can squeeze into very small holes. Beware of household objects such as washing machines, recliner chairs, dishwashers, and refrigerators. Ferrets love to crawl into the mechanisms and can be seriously injured as a result.

What you will need for your ferret:

Cage- Many people keep their ferrets in a cage or very well-ferretproofed room whenever they can’t be supervised. This drastically reduces the risks of digestive-tract blockages from swallowing indigestible objects, injury, and escape.

However, even if you plan to let your ferrets have the run of the house at all times, you’ll want a cage at first for litter-training and other kinds of training as well as for temporary use. If you plan to keep your ferret caged whenever you’re not home, and you’ll be gone most of the day, a reasonable cage size is about 2 X 3 feet and 2 feet high (60 X 100 X 60 cm). A second or third ferret could share that size cage. If you’ll only be using the cage temporarily, such as when you’re vacuuming or taking your pet on a weekend trip, 1 X 2 X 1 feet (30 X 60 X 30 cm) is sufficient for one or two ferrets. Of course, the bigger the cage, the better. For trips around town, a shoulder or duffel bag equipped with a litter pan and mesh window works well.

Playpen – Creating a safe place for your ferret to play can include using a commercial playpen or by restricting your ferret to one room that has been ferret-proofed.

Food – Fiesta or Kaytee ferret food is always a good choice.

Food Dish – plastic or ceramic is fine

Water Dish or Bottle – I would suggest a ceramic water bowl so they cant tip it over easily.

Litter Pans – Make sure the sides of the pan are pretty high, since ferrets habitually back into corners to deposit their wastes and you don’t want messes over the sides of the pan. However, one side of the pan should be low enough that your ferret can get in and out easily. You can also use cat litter for ferrets.

Bedding – Ferrets love hammocks and things they can hide in. They make alot of nice things that ferrets enjoy playing with.

Ferret Shampoo – Any ferret shampoo will do. Some ferrets may be frightened the first few times of taking a bath and may nip you.

Nail Clippers – Ferret or cat nail clippers are fine to use.

Toys – A hammock is always a good choice, Plastic balls, with or without bells, hard rubber toys, but be sure they can’t get stuck in your ferret’s mouth, and take them away when they start to crack.

Collar with Bell – This is a good way to know where your ferret is if he has run of the house.
Bitter Apple – A bad-tasting liquid or paste intended to stop pets from chewing things ( This I recommend you have)
How do I ferret proof my home?

You must keep in mind your ferret’s safety at all times. Dangers lurk everywhere in the home for the ferret and are not always obvious. The best way to to see what your ferret can get into is to get down on the floor and see things the way they do. Remember, your ferret will check everything out and can get into places you’d never dream of!Here are some tips to guide you.HOLES & SPACES
Make sure that there are no holes or spaces under cabinets, refrigerators, stoves and other appliances and make sure they are blocked off. Cover any holes in walls or mouldings, around plumbing or window frames. Ferrets have flexible skeletons and can fit into the tiniest of places. If the head fits, the body will follow!

FURNITURE:
Ferrets love to climb up inside furniture and mattresses. They will scratch up the stuffing and make a nice bed for themselves. (Mine got into my bed box spring!) Cover the bottom of your mattresses and box springs with either heavy fabric or screening, wood or masonite, anything they can not scratch through. (I stapled screening on my box spring.) Always account for your ferrets before sitting in any recliner chair or rocking chair. Look below you before sitting on the couch. Ferrets love to hide in furniture and can be hard to see. Always check first.

ELECTRICAL CORDS & OUTLETS
Some ferrets love to chew on electrical cords. Others like to investigate outlets. Either keep these items out of reach or spray with Bitter Apples to deter chewing. Baby outlet plugs work great too.

CLEANING SUPPLIES
Be sure to keep all cleaning supplies up in the higher cabinets out of reach or in cabinets with strong baby latches. Ferrets are very adept at opening cabinets and drawers. Common household cleaning supplies can be deadly for the ferret.

WINDOWS & DOORS
Check all your windows and doors. Are they properly closed and latched? Make sure the window screens are sturdy and intact, with no holes. The ferret can make even the tiniest of holes larger and escape. Once outside survival is unlikely after a couple of days. Ferrets can not survive in the wild and should be prevented from escaping or running free at all times.

VERY IMPORTANT CAUTIONS:

Unfortunately, one of the most prevalent causes of premature ferret death is gastrointestinal blockage. You can protect your ferrets by keeping a close eye on what they like to chew on. Basically, ferrets like any type of foam rubber, soft rubber, couch stuffing, sponge and Styrofoam. Additionally, many ferrets also enjoy chewing on paper, plastic bags, cardboard and fabric. These will all cause gastrointestinal blockages if ingested. Look for signs such as furniture stuffing on the floor, under beds or under other furniture. Make sure your ferrets are not digging holes under the couch and crawling inside.Many house plants are poisonous, and ferrets are very intrigued by them. My ferrets have attempted to chew on the leaves of some of my plants in the past. I would suggest that you put all house plants out of your ferret’s reach.

Ferrets actually enjoy the smell of bleach, bar soap and some other household cleaners. Be careful when you are cleaning the bathroom or kitchen. Always rinse bathtubs very well after cleaning them.

Always keep your ferret out of potentially unsafe rooms such as the kitchen, bathrooms, and laundry room.

Vets Choice Glucosamine Powder Food Supplement

Image Hosted by PixsUP.com

Vets Choice glucosamine powder Is a powdered vitamin and antioxidant formation for dogs and cats. It Contains glucosamine HCL for strong joint and bone development.

Why It is important to give your dogs

glucosamine?

 

Healthy cartilage is absolutely essential for proper joint function and overall mobility. Happy, healthy, active dogs need healthy cartilage and a diet that supports overall well-being, including joint health. Glucosamine is an important nutrient for making joint cartilage, the protective covering over the ends of bones in a joint. Glucosamine products have been studied and used for the healing of skin wounds, stomach ailments, and joint problems. Their use in the relief and healing of the symptoms of joint disease is currently their biggest use. Glucosamine and chondroitin have been successfully used in humans, horses, dogs, and cats.

Where does glucosamine come from?

 

Glucosamine occurs naturally in several common dog food ingredients. Purina uses several poultry and meat sources and guarantees the level of glucosamine in several of their adult dog formulas. Glucosamine is also produced in the body itself.

How does glucosamine work to help your dog’s joints?

 

Glucosamine will hydrate and lubricate your pet’s joints. The added hydration and lubrication will help to prevent arthritis in your dog. For this reason, Glucosamine is a good supplement in your dog’s diet. Pet owners of larger breed dogs that are susceptible to having joint and hip problems should particularly consider adding Glucosamine as a supplement to their dog’s diet.

Glucosamine is generally safe as part of a healthy and balanced diet. Your dog’s diet should include glucosamine to encourage joint health. Also your pet will not suffer from side effects with medications when glucosamine is part of your dog’s diet.

What joints can be affected by osteroarthritis?

 

There are many different joints that can be affected by osteoarthritis in the dog, but by far, the most common is the hip joints. Hip Dysplasia is very common in many of the larger breeds of dogs. This condition greatly exacerbates the normal wear on the smooth cartilage protecting the bony surface of the joint. When this cartilage wears away there is a bone to bone contact, which creates the pain seen with arthritis. Even dogs that do not have hip dysplasia may have a decrease in this cartilage as they age, and will show signs of arthritis. In addition, aging dogs may also have arthritis in their knees, elbows, and shoulders and cartilage loss or damage that respond to glucosamine and chondroitin.

Is There Such A Thing As Reverse Sneezing In Dogs? YES

Image Hosted by PixsUP.com

What is reverse sneezing in dogs? A reverse sneeze really isn’t a sneeze at all. While air is exhaled and forced out of the nose and mouth during a normal sneeze, reverse sneezing is forceful inhalation with air being sucked in. When it happens, you’ll hear a kind of deep, snorting sound. The dog appears to be in respiratory distress…. as if struggling to breathe or gasping for air… as in some sort of asthma attack. Episodes of reverse sneezing are usually brief, lasting from a few seconds up to a minute or two.Reverse sneezing can be very alarming for dog owners because it may seem that your dog is in respiratory distress. It is best described as a series of vigorous intakes of breath through the nose, often accompanied by your dog’s head bobbing up and down.
most reverse sneezing is nothing to worry about. It is the result of irritation of the nasal passages, often with dust. It is not life-threatening, and usually does not indicate any underlying disease.
An episode can be stopped if the dog is stimulated to swallow by either massaging the throat or briefly pinching off the nasal openings. Some dogs have reverse sneezing episodes so frequently that various medications may be needed to reduce the number of episodes.
 

Allergies play a role in other individuals. Often  this condition is seen during the spring months when there is a lot of pollen around.  If your pet is having these episodes more and more frequently, your veterinarian may try an antihistamine, or even an antihistamine/corticosteroid combination to see if the symptoms diminish or disappear. Most dogs can live with these occasional spasm, especially if you learn how to dissipate an episode by calming your dog down with words or petting.

 

The exact reasons for these episodes are unknown.  A reverse sneeze may look disturbing – many people fear that their dog is not breathing during these episodes – but it is not a harmful condition and there are no ill effects. Reverse sneezing attacks are generally quite brief and not life threatening.
In a small number of cases, reverse sneezing may indicate a more serious condition such as nasal polyps.

Be Aware of Canidae Dog Food Ingredient Changes (2008)

Image Hosted by PixsUP.com

Anyone who feeds there dogs canidae should know that Canidae is under the new formulation, Canidae dry foods will no longer be gluten free, due to the addition of barley. If you know that your dog is gluten intolerant, start shopping around for a different food.

Even if your dog doesn’t have problems with gluten (not all do, and many foods do contain high-gluten grains like barley), the change in formulation to include rice bran and peas may contribute to gas and digestive upset. Dogs who aren’t particularly sensitive may not have any problems at all, others will get over it within a few days of transitioning, but again, for individuals with a delicate digestive system, expect that they may no longer tolerate the product.

Millet is generally well tolerated, but again, it doesn’t work for every dog.

“Diversifying” ingredients may sound catchy, and Canidae certainly has made an effort to put a positive spin on it in their statement, but please remember that not all dogs do well on foods that include a wide variety of items.

Also note that “Herring Meal” will be replaced by generic “Ocean Fish Meal”, meaning the company reserves the possibility to use different fish from batch to batch without having to change the ingredient list. This has not been addressed in their statement at all.

Whether these changes are indeed an improvement, as Canidae claims, is for you to decide – after observing how it affects your dog.
