Oxygen Doghouses Provide Air Therapy

oxygen-doghouse.jpg

Have a sick dog? Now you can provide Oxygen Therapy for your dog. Let him or her relax in an Oxygen Doghouse that will deliver 100% pure oxygen to your ailing pooch. Not only that, you can join in too.

The oxygen bar is a trend that started in the late 1990s in Japan with claims to alleviate fatigue and/or stress, to enhance a feeling of well-being, and as a migraine and hangover cure.

How Your Pet Affects Your Homeowner's Insurance Rates

5950_vicious_dog_attacking_a_man_running_away.jpg
If your pampered pooch gets a little overprotective and bites a visitor to your property, you probably expect a visit from the local dog officer. But it may also affect your next homeowner's insurance bill.

Did you know that dog bites are the largest single cause of home policy claims? According to Bankrate.com, that impetuous "nip" may result in higher homeowner's insurance rates for you:

Many insurance companies keep a list of dog breeds most likely to attack, based on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention statistics. If the homeowner owns that breed, it may be difficult to obtain insurance.

A single attack is often likely to result in higher premiums. However, homeowners may be able to keep their rates from escalating by remedying the situation to the insurance company's satisfaction.

This may involve getting rid of the dog, or taking the dog to a "psychologist" or animal trainer. Sometimes, the homeowner's rates will then depend upon passing a probationary period, such as six months without an attack.

How Far Would You Go to Help a Disabled Pet?

without regret.jpg

Our pets are indeed members of our families. That means we love them in health...and in sickness. We are not so quick anymore to "put them out" when they become seriously ill or disabled. We stand by them.

Sometimes our pets develop a bone cancer in their paw or leg that results in an amputation. Or maybe they are hit by a vehicle. The end result is the same--you made the decision to keep your pet alive as a 3-legged animal.

If you are going that route with a disabled pet that you just cannot let go, here is a book to provide support: Without Regret: A Handbook for Owners of Canine Amputees It will mean a lot down the road to know you gave it your best shot, that you did as much as you could for your faithful buddy.

MSNBC addresses advancements in physical therapy for disabled pets in Custom wheelchairs keep disabled pets moving:

A growing number of pet owners are turning to custom-built wheelchairs to restore mobility to furry friends whose legs, hips or backs don't work. The owners' goals are simple: to reward their pets' unconditional love with whatever it takes for the animals to live normally....

Veterinarian Derek Fox, a University of Missouri professor specializing in orthopedic surgery for dogs, cats and other small animals, said pets that once would have been irreversibly crippled are benefiting from a variety of advancements: improved hip and joint replacements, better physical therapy and wheelchairs.

"Even if a treatment is expensive, these are people who say they'll do anything to keep their pet moving, to keep them happy, to keep their quality of life up," he said.

Don't Overcook Your Pet -- Hotdog™ Temperature Alarm

dogs.h13.gif
Living in Florida, we see a fair amount of pets closed up in cars on hot days and sometimes wonder if they are ok. We know the owners don't realize how hot their car can get.

hotdog_temparature_monitor.jpg
If you ever have to leave your cat or dog in a vehicle on a warm day, you won't have to worry as much with a Hotdog™ Temperature Monitor programmed and installed. It detects potentially deadly temperature rises within your vehicle. If the temperature exceeds your programmed setting, the Hotdog™ lowers 2 electric windows and will activate the car horn or lights to alert you (and everyone else around). The Hotdog™ is also available as a portable unit.

Pet Safe Smart Door--"The Ultimate in Dog Door Security"

smartdoor.jpg

If you find yourself letting your dog in and out all the time, pamper yourself with a PetSafe Smart Door and Smart Key system. Give yourself a break and give the dog a key to the house! You deserve it.

Your dog wears a SmartKey tag on his or her collar that communicates with the SmartDoor through a radio frequency. Your pet unlocks the door as he or she approaches, and the door re-locks automatically as your pet enters or exits. The beauty of this system is that it offers three levels of security - Automatic (unlimited entry through use of SmartKey), Always Unlocked, and Always Locked. It has a sensing range adjustable up to 15 feet.

PetSafe Smart Door and Smart Key is energy efficient with a weather resistant seal and insulated flap. Fits standard doors from 1-1/2" to 2" thick.

The system can identify up to 5 SmartKeys™ for use with up to 5 pets. And if you have that many, this system is a very good idea for you. Additional SmartKeys are sold separately.

11 Month-old Dachshund Paralyzed by a Coral Snake

No, Florida is not all fun and sun.
dachshund.jpg
If your pet is vomiting and becoming disoriented, don't wait--call the vet. That's what this couple did in Delray Beach FL and good thing they did. Their 11-month old dachshund pup was going downhill fast and they didn't know what was wrong...until they saw the coral snake* in their living room. Happy news, it looks like the anti-venom is working and the dog will survive.

Read story.

*Coral snakes are not uncommon in suburban Florida. We have encountered them in wooded areas on our property, on the street and on our porch. We live within city limits in a heavily populated area.

Pet Scoop on Pet Insurance Policies--To Insure or Not to Insure?

To insure or not to insure? This can easily be a $1,000 question.

On a recent Saturday evening, our Golden Retriever Jesse bounded out of the back of our SUV onto the ramp before it was secured to the bumper. Both she and the ramp fell to the ground, with our Jess nursing an injured paw. Not only were we momentarily chagrined about her sprain and possible break, we were envisioning the cavernous hole a trip to the Vet Emergency Clinic on a weekend night would make in our bank account.

Since our pets are cherished members of our families, we want to provide them with the best medical care we can afford and keep them healthy for as long as we possibly can. As a result, our veterinary care is growing more expensive. Miami-Dade vet blogger Doolittler has started a series of timely articles Doolitter's vetcentric take on pet insurance, which may help you make up your mind whether to purchase a Pet Insurance Policy.

When the care vets can provide begins to outstrip your ability to pay for it, something's gotta give. In this case it's the insurance companies...giving you the ability to pay for care you might never have considered twenty years ago--for a fee.

The purpose of insurance in this setting is to help you pay for the growing expense involved in pet illness and injury. If your pet lives a healthy life, the monthly premiums you pay for pet insurance is overkill--you'll lose money in the long run. When she surprises you with a midnight snack of antifreeze, however, pet insurance might just make the difference between high-tech treatment and instant euthanasia.

Peace of mind and tragedy aversion is the name of the game when it comes to pet health insurance. Those of us with substantial expendable savings? Statistically, we're better off without it. After all, the insurance companies are in the biz to make a profit. But how many of us can boast a lotto-size stash under the mattress?

If you would like to research pet insurance policies, try PETCO Insure your Pets Today and QuickCare Pet Insurance.

Read entire Doolitter's article Part 1.

Care and Feeding of Our Pets--New Book Releases

Do you ever wonder if you are feeding your pet the most nutritious food? Whether you should really be throwing them scraps, or if their recent illness was caused by their diet? The pet food recall of 2007 reminded us all that we can't take pet nutrition for granted anymore. Here are a few of the new books out on the all important subject of food and fuel for our pets.

ultpetfoodguide.jpg
For a comprehensive guide, pick up a copy of Ultimate Pet Food Guide: Everything You Need to Know About Feeding Your Dog or Cat by Liz Palika. This book covers it all--homemade, commercial, and raw food diets. The author discusses introducing new foods; what "human foods" pets shouldn't eat; free-feeding; responsibility for food safety; where ingredients come from; and red flags in ingredients.

If you like to cook for your pets, you can choose from more than fifty veterinarian- and pet-nutritionist-approved recipes, along with diets tailored to special-needs pets, such as puppies/kittens and pregnant, older, overweight and/or more sedentary animals.

natnutcats.jpg
Natural Nutrition for Cats: The Path to Purr-fect Health by Kymythy R. Schultze, "exposes the pitfalls of the pet-food industry."

If you are contemplating a new puppy, or have just brought one into your home, Puppy Preschool, Revised Edition: Raising Your Puppy Right---Right from the Start! by John Ross and Barbara McKinney is a must-read. It is filled with great advice for the first-time dog owner, as well as a refresher course for repeat owner. The premise of the books is that you should always train from the canine point of view.

In the first chapter, which is critical to puppy-rearing success, they outline their underlying training philosophy and consider who should own a dog. In succeeding chapters, they cover choosing the right puppy (including finding and evaluating puppies, the ten best breeds, and ten problem breeds), puppy development, bonding and socializing, housebreaking, basic commands, and puppy manners.

If you are a dog-lover reading Super Cool Pets, you most likely have experience bringing up a puppy. Due to a dog's optimal 10-15 or so year lifespan, a lot of time can go by between puppies. As we found, it's never a bad idea to update yourself on state-of-the-art training techniques, pet food and equipment. And we will keep you current here on Super Cool Pets.

Pet Anxiety Remedies--Melatonin, Music & Rescue Remedy

Your dog is shaking, panting and pacing frenetically around the house. Maybe cowering in the closet or hiding under the bed. Some dogs even scratch and destroy their surroundings.The problem--anxiety, whether to noise, thunder, strangers, in-breeding or the boogeyman. What to do, to make your pet, and yourself, feel better.

Two intriguing new releases this March 8, a book with two sample CD tracks, Through a Dog's Ear: Using Sound to Improve the Health & Behavior of Your Canine Companion
throughadogsearbook.jpg
and a companion music CD Through a Dog's Ear: Music to Calm Your Canine Companion, Volume 1, music designed to calm animals and humans.
throughadogsearcd.jpg
The book applies the latest science on how dogs hear and react to sound. It includes research information, stories, and a two-track sample CD--one to calm your dog and one for general enjoyment entitled "Music for the canine household".

The CD carries 9 full tracks of solo piano music. The individual pieces have been selected and/or rearranged (lowering tempo and pitch, for example) to gradually reduce the heart rate and respiratory rate.This music has been clinically researched, studying its effect on dogs of different temperaments and in various anxiety-producing situations. The studies show that this "psycho-acoustically designed" music reduced anxiety at twice the rate of traditional classical music.

[via Janet Tobiassen Crosby, DVM, Veterinary Medicine]

In our own household, one of our Golden Retrievers is now not only terrified of thunder, but even upset by a rain shower, obviously due to association. This suffering cannot go on, not to mention, rainy nights=sleepless nights. Music therapy is fine for the day, but at night we prefer quiet.
Melatonin.jpg
We have been using Rescue Remedy, but our dog's anxiety level has heightened so it really has not been as effective recently. On the recommendation of our vet, we wrapped a Melatonin 3 Mg pill up in a slice of deli ham and fed it to our dog. This has calmed her down and she lay quietly in the closet during the last storm, not panting. The anxiety is still present, but seems to be reduced. Check with your vet as to dosage, especially if you have a smaller dog.

If you have read this far, you too must be interested in the subject of pet anxiety. If you have any remedies of your own, please leave a comment or email them to news@supercoolpets.com

The Easy Way: Petzlife Oral Care Spray for Clean, Healthy Pet Teeth and Gums

petspray.jpg

If you've heard it once, you have heard it a thousand times, you are supposed to brush your pet's teeth. Why? Once plaque and tartar have accumulated on your pet's teeth, it is recommended to have their teeth professionally cleaned at the vet. A vet has to render your pet unconscious in order to clean his or her teeth--not cheap and not a procedure to be taken lightly. So it is a good idea to make dental care a routine part of your pet's health maintenance schedule.
teeth.jpg
However, not all pets are real keen on anyone putting a toothbrush in their mouth, although that is the best way to begin dental care with a puppy or kitten. Petzlife Oral Care Spray works without a toothbrush to remove plaque and tartar on dogs and cats. It also safely kills bacteria on contact, helping to eliminate doggy or kitty bad breath.

For best results, withhold food and water 30 minutes before and after applications of Petzlife Oral Care Spray. A good time would be to brush your pet's teeth before bed, like any member of the household. One bottle will last at least 3 months if used as directed (and 6 months if used for maintenance).

Mini Leo Dog Treat Toy

leotoy.jpg

Mini Leo Dog Treat Toy was the winner of Pet Product News Editor's Choice Award for 2005. This is a completely hollow treat-dispensing toy made of a bouncy, durable, chewy material. It has a trumpet neck perfect for grabbing, shaking and sometimes even releasing a surprise treat.

The advantage of the Leo is that you can design individual treat-release puzzles specifically for your own dog's individual problem-solving capacity, so he or she won't get frustrated or easily bored. One toy on its own works great, and by connecting multiple toys in different ways you can really keep your dog challenged. When Leo toys are connected, the treats inside can move from one toy to another.

Mini Leo Dog Treat Toys are a great way to keep your pet engaged and entertained.

QuickFinder® Clipper Takes the Worry Out of Pet Nail Clipping

quickfinder.jpg

If you are squeamish about clipping your pet's claws, or just want a safer way to do the job, here's a claw clipper you will love. QuickFinder® Clipper will eliminate your cutting worries. No more bleeding or pain for your pet. This is an electronic nail clipper in different sizes for dogs, cats, and small animals.

The Clipper utilizes QuickSensor Technology that clearly indicates when it is safe and when it is not safe to clip. You move the cutting blade of the Clipper towards the nail to allow it to sense the quick. The Clipper has three colored lights on the handle: red for "danger-don't clip", yellow for "caution--don't clip", and green for "safe to clip".

Effective on most claw density types, even black claws. QuickFinder® Clipper works on dogs up to 75 pounds. According to the product website, "more important than weight, is the hardness (density) of the nail. Any current guillotine style nail clipper does not effectively cut extremely hard (dense) or large nails. If your pet has extremely hard or very large nails, wait until our deluxe model comes out in early 2008." Visit the site for a video and more information.

Review: Mugoh Mat Helps Dogs Dry Their Own Feet!

FullMug Mat.jpg

Super Cool Pets received this innovative Mugoh Mat for review. It is designed to quickly absorb water from dog's feet (not human feet) and eliminate the mess of wet paw tracks on the floor. These Mugoh Mats are all hand crafted in Oregon and are made of soft, super absorbent 2-ply paper for the ruffles and burlap (jute) for the backing. The soft paper has the same absorbency as the best paper towels or tissue and sucks up water from paws on contact.
Closeup MugohMat.jpg
To get "the most" out of the Mugoh mat, we first picked the ideal location for the mat, where our dogs come in from outside and first walk in the house. Then we familiarized our pets with the mat (they didn't even notice it). Finally, important, we set aside the mat when not in use, or when dry outdoors, to prolong its lifetime.

Coincidentally, or through some voodoo power of the mat, it rained early the next morning just before dawn so we could try it out. Once Molly recovered from the trauma of yet another thunderstorm, we were able to let our Golden Retrievers out after breakfast to get their feet wet. Instead of wiping down their paws, we placed the mat vertically from the entrance and let them walk in on that. It worked great. No mud, no paw prints or dirt. The mat is absorbent and soft on the feet, unlike the standard coir mat.
PackagedMugohMat.jpg .
After being wet, the Mugoh Mat will normally dry in a couple of hours. The Mat is disposable and recyclable. For optimal effectiveness it should be replaced when it becomes frayed or matted. The mat will last for several weeks or longer under normal use from one dog. It is an attractive neutral beige color and 100% biodegradable.

Equip yourself with a couple of Mugoh Mats and place them together to increase the area your pet can walk on, by the front door, mudroom or under your pet door. Size is 24in x 38in.

Austin Air Pet Machine Air Purifier for Smokers and Pet Lovers

austinpurifier.jpg

What to do if you love your pets, but your allergies kick up when you are around them? Wouldn't you love to find a way to reduce incidences of asthma, allergic reactions, runny noses, watery eyes, headaches and even snoring, without those meds that make you sleepy? You can.

Do yourself and other allergy-prone family members a favor and equip your home with an Austin Air Pet Machine Air Purifier with a HEPA Air Filter, designed specifically for pet owners. This Air Purifier meets HEPA standards, trapping 99.97% of all particulates larger than 0.3 microns. It removes pet allergens such as dander and dust, as well as thousands of other micro-organisms. Reduces odors caused by pets and other chemicals, gases and odors.

If anyone smokes in your household, keeping the air clean should be healthy for your pets as well. According to this recent article in NaturalNews, Secondhand Smoke Poses Health Hazard to Pets, smoking is not just potentially hazardous to people but our pets too.

Living with a smoker places companion animals of many species at increase risk for a variety of cancers and other health problems, many of which are fatal, according to a press release issued by Oklahoma State University.

"There have been a number of scientific papers recently that have reported the significant health threat secondhand smoke poses to pets," said Dr. Carolynn MacAllister, a cooperative extension service veterinarian at Oklahoma State University. The press release cited a 1998 Colorado State University study, which demonstrated that a dog exposed to secondhand smoke at home is 1.6 times more likely to acquire lung cancer than a dog living in a smoke-free environment. Short-nosed dogs are particularly susceptible.

Austin Air Pet Machine Air Purifier - HEPA Air Filter has a baked-on sandstone powder coat finish. It is also available in White, Black or Silver.

Designed for rooms up to 1500 square feet, the Austin Air Cleaner will purify your space up to twice an hour. The Austin Junior Air Cleaner can clean a 700 square foot room up to twice an hour.

Tekno the Robotic Puppy Provides Companionship

robotpuppy.jpg

Would you like the benefits of a pet dog without the mess and stress? Maybe you have had dogs all your life, but now, due to illness or age, don't feel quite up to caring for one? Or do your children hound you for a pet? If any of these apply, consider adding a Robotic Puppy to your household. Wait--before you click away, we're not nuts!

According to Study finds dogs, robots cheer elderly By Cheryl Wittenauer, AP this may not be such a crazy idea.

ST. LOUIS - Dogs may have a hard time wrapping their paws around this one: Robotic competition is nipping at their heels in the man's-best-friend department. A study by Saint Louis University found that a lovable pooch named Sparky and a robotic dog, AIBO, were about equally effective at relieving the loneliness of nursing home residents and fostering attachments.

The study, which appears in the March issue of the Journal of The American Medical Directors Association, builds on previous findings by the researchers that frequent dog visits decreased loneliness of nursing home residents.

Andrew Ng, who leads Stanford University's team in building a home-assistance robot and was not involved in the study, said the strength of the research is very encouraging.


Tekno the Robotic Puppy--Dalmatian, featured in the photo above, acts just like a real puppy.

  • Tekno walks forward, backward, right and left - His tail, ears and head move as well!
  • Tekno expresses emotions through his color-changing eyes and puppy sounds - He barks and whines just like a real puppy
  • Tekno comes with a bone and a ball to play fetch - Tekno loves to chomp on his bone!
  • Wireless Tekno Translator included-- makes Tekno dance, speak, walk and more!

Also available for "adoption" are Tekno the Robotic Puppy--Beagle , Tekno the Robotic Puppy--Silver, and Tekno the Robotic Puppy--Black. Click on any of these links and you can watch a demo video.

Pets Scoop -- Study finds health benefits to owning cats

catpurrposter.jpg


Web MD writes that "your cat may bring you a lot more than unconditional love after a tough day."

A new study shows that cat owners are less likely to die of a heart attack and other cardiovascular diseases than people who have never had a pet cat.

The findings emerged from an analysis of data on nearly 4,500 men and women, ages 30 to 75, who participated in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Study. All were free of cardiovascular disease when they entered the study in the 1970s.

Over half, 55%, reported having a pet cat at some point in their lives.

Compared with cat owners, people who never had a pet cat were 40% more likely to die of a heart attack over the 20-year study period. They were also 30% more likely to die of any cardiovascular disease, including stroke, heart failure, and chronic heart disease.

The results held true even after the researchers took into account other risk factors for heart disease and stroke, including age, gender, race, blood pressure, and smoking.

The researchers found no such link for people who had a pet dog.

The findings were presented here at the American Stroke Association's (ASA) International Stroke Conference.
