Hot New Pet Book -- A Wolf Called Romeo by Nick Jans

WolfCalledRomeo.jpg

It is generally thought that dogs are descended from domesticated Grey Wolves many moons ago. So it stands to reason that those of us who love our dogs also tend to take a fancy to wolves, albeit from a distance.

But not always so distant! This new A Wolf Called Romeo by author and photographer Nick Jans is the true story of a six-year friendship between a wild, but sociable black wolf and the community of people and dogs of Juneau, Alaska.

The author had lived in Alaska for nearly thirty years when a friendly encounter with a black wolf while walking his lab at twilight changes his and many other lives in this modern suburb on the edge of Alaskan wilderness.

Hot New Bird Book Release -- The Owl Who Liked Sitting on Caesar by Martin Windrow

Owl.png

Here at Super Cool Pets we were surprised to hear the other day that pet birds such as parakeets, cockatiels, parrots are considered "exotic pets".

We understand that category for reptiles such as snakes and lizards, along with other normally wild animals such as rabbits, ferrets, mice, but birds and even fish?

So how about choosing an owl for a companion?

In The Owl Who Liked Sitting on Caesar: Living with a Tawny Owl British military historian Martin Windrow tells the tale of his 15 year live-in relationship with a tawny owl he named "Mumble" who became his closest companion. Fascinating!

Hot New Pet Book Release -- Animal Madness by Laurel Braitman

Animal_Madness.png

We all are expected to put on a happy face here in America, but the reality is that life is fraught with suffering. Suffering and fear thereof can lead to depression, anxiety and mental illness.

If you live with an animal and are an observant sort, you likely know that non-humans suffer mentally as well as physically. Laurel Braitman noticed this in her anxiety-prone Bernese Mountain Dog. Extensive subsequent research brought her to the conclusion that animals can lose their minds just like we humans.

That's the premise of her Animal Madness: How Anxious Dogs, Compulsive Parrots, and Elephants in Recovery Help Us Understand Ourselves -- that nonhuman animals can suffer from mental illnesses that mirror those that humans endure. And they can recover, just like we can.

Fascinating stuff at Animal Madness: How Anxious Dogs, Compulsive Parrots, and Elephants in Recovery Help Us Understand Ourselves.

Melatonin for Dog Anxiety Caused by Fireworks, Thunder

Melatonin2014.jpg

Fireworks are part of the July 4th celebration, and neighborhoods across the US are booming well into the night(s). As fun as this can be for people, the unexpected and erratic loud noises can terrify our pets.

Some "experts" discourage loving care and attention, suggesting the pet owner somehow reinforces this "behavior". Fear is an emotion, not a behavior, and your pets need your support during this difficult time just as a fellow human would.

If your pet is terrified, like ours are here at Supercool Pets HQ, dole out the hugs and try Melatonin available as an over-the-counter product.

According to Melatonin Supplements for Dogs are a safe and drug-free supplement for pets to relieve anxiety from loud noises such as fireworks and thunder:

Effectiveness of Melatonin for Dogs:

  • Melatonin helps regulate the sleeping pattern (circadian rhythm) of dogs. However it doesn't induce drowsiness.

  • It's used medically for the re-growth of hair in dogs with pattern baldness.

  • It acts as a sedative and calms your pet, and is used to treat stress issues such as accident trauma and anxiety.

  • It's also used to alleviate the fear of loud booming noises such as thunder or fireworks and in the treatment of conditions such as epilepsy. In the case of epileptic dogs, melatonin should be administered at night as it effectively reduces the risk of epileptic seizures at night.

  • Puppies have very sharp hearing and generally panic when they hear loud sounds. They tremble and hide under chairs or beds. It's advisable to use melatonin rather than tranquillizers or sedatives to combat this condition.

  • It has been known to help dogs overcome their fear of loud noises permanently.

  • Some dogs suffer from Canine Cognitive Dysfunction which is very similar to Alzheimer's disease in humans. Administration of melatonin helps them sleep better and become less restless
.

General Dosage Guidelines:

  • 1 mg for dogs weighing less than 10 lbs

  • 1.5 mg for dogs weighing between 10 to 25 lbs

  • 3 mg for dogs weighing between 26 to 100 lbs

  • 3 to 6 mg for dogs weighing over 100 lbs

As with all medications, please check with your vet before staring any treatment as your pet may have a pre-existing condition. At Melatonin.
