Navy SEAL Dogs in the Osama Bin Laden Raid wore High-Tech K9 Storm Vests

k9storm.jpg

The dog that accompanied the 24-member Navy SEAL Team 6 who entered Osama Bin Laden's compound in Pakistan was a specially-trained Belgian Shepherd (Malinois) named Cairo. Belgian Shepherd dogs have a history as working dogs, in this case assisting the military. These tough, intimidating dogs are not your run-of-the-mill family pets and are trained much like police and homeland security dogs.

There are many products that help military working dogs (MWDs). Likely Cairo wore a tactical stab-resistant K9 Storm vest loaded with high-tech gadgetry costing $20,000 - $30,000. The gear included high-def night vision cams, bulletproof vests with parachute-ready harness and a two-way radio (see image below).

Need Drugs? How to Save on Prescription Pet Meds

1-800-PetMeds RX/392x72.gif

Drugs are expensive in the US, whether for humans or pets. It's no secret there is a ginormous mark-up on pharmaceuticals, by the manufacturers themselves and the veterinarians who sell them.

If you are feeling pinched financially or just want to get the best price you can, a better deal on prescription pet drugs likely is awaiting you online. Legitimate retailers with VetVIPPS certification such as PetCareRx and 1-800-PetMeds offer mark-downs and deals on free shipping. Wherever you may go, just look for this seal of approval:
Vet_VIPPS.jpg
Depending upon your state, your veterinarian may be required under state law or regulation to write prescriptions upon client request (click linkto check). With prescription in hand, you can then fax it in to a reputable online retailer. Or, your vet may be willing to price match the online site in order to keep your good will and business, as our local Super Cool Pets vet does.

For an expert and thorough discussion of this topic read Patty Kuhly VMD, MBA | Pricey Pet Prescriptions: How to Get Your Vet to Help You Get the Best Deals on Drugs | PetMD and save some money the next time you need to fill a prescription for your pet.

Amazon.com Hot New Pet Book Release: Dog Sense by John Bradshaw

dogsense.jpg

We know that this will come as a surprise, but dogs are not humans. And they are not wolf clones, any more than we are chimpanzees. Sorry to say, but true. With that thought in mind, the new book Dog Sense: How the New Science of Dog Behavior Can Make You A Better Friend to Your Pet by renowned anthrozoologist John Bradshaw moves our understanding of dog behavior, evolution and psychology into the 21st century.

The author makes a case for altering our understanding of dogs in order to interact with them simply as dogs, unique unto themselves, so we can improve out lives together moving forward. The book examines our approach to domestication and breeding, along with our misconceptions and consequent stereotyping of dog behavior that have directly affected dogs' well-being.

How Hummingbirds Feed -- New Video and Insight

hummerfeeding.jpg

A fascinating article with video and diagrams over at Wired provides new insight on how hummingbirds feed.

New high-speed videos of hummingbirds overturn nearly two centuries of conventional wisdom on how they drink.

Researchers previously thought tube-like channels in their tongues sucked up fluid by capillary action. But the new analysis shows that their tongues actually trap nectar by curling around it.

Below is a high speed video:

Pet Scoop: Senior Pet Foods Not All the Same

SeniorDog.jpg

We often buy our pets age-specific food in accordance with package labeling. Most of us accept the conventional wisdom that senior dogs have different nutritional requirements as they age.

But truth be told, according to Wide Variety in Nutritional Content Found in 'Senior' Dog Foods -- Science Daily, there are no official dietary requirements for aging dogs. Pet foods marketed for "longevity" and "maturity" or "senior," "old" or "mature" dogs are not legally required to adhere to a standard nutrition profile beyond the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) nutrient profile minimums for all adult dogs.

Iams Premium Protection Senior Dry Dog Food (5.5 lbs.; Chicken)Blue Buffalo Chicken & Brown Rice Senior Dog Food (30 lbs.)

Furthermore dogs, like people, have individual dietary needs. Not all older dogs require a senior diet. Because these pet foods targeting seniors are not all the same, you will want to feed your senior pet a diet that is right for your specific animal.
