Pets and Glow Sticks on July 4th -- Just Say No

GlowCat.jpg

Fourth of July can be a lot of fun. Maybe not so much for our pets. It's easy to forget that our pets don't have a clue what all the noise and partying is about.

Revelers, especially children, have been known to dress up pets with the glow sticks or glow jewelry that they are playing with. Along with fireworks, these are toxic for our pets.

It may look adorable, but if those are chewed up and swallowed, plastics and glowing chemicals are not good for animal bodies, likely resulting in gastrointestinal irritation, as well as intestinal blockage. One more problem no one needs.

Shaving Dogs and Cats for Summer -- Right or Wrong?

Shaving_Cat_.jpg

We all want our pets to be super cool, but shaving your dog or cat this summer may not be such a great idea. Generally, experts recommend against shaving most pets, according to Should You Shave Your Pet for Summer? | WebMD:

A pet's coat is designed by nature to keep it cool during the summer and warm in the winter. By shaving your pet you usually interfere with this built-in temperature regulation....

Cats. Cats, in particular, are very good at regulating body temperature and "really get no benefit from being shaved," says Mark J. Stickney, DVM....Cats are also almost always more mobile than dogs, so they can simply move to a shadier spot when temperatures rise.

Dogs. If you have a dog that has been bred for very cold climates, think breeds like Great Pyrenees, St. Bernards, Malamutes, or Huskies, consider shaving them when the mercury rises, the pros suggest. Resist shaving other breeds because not only will dogs like labs and retrievers simply get no benefit from it, they run the risk of sunburn once shaved.

If you do decide to shave your pet, consider having it done by a professional. If not, remember to keep those clippers cool, so the animal's skin doesn't get burned! Details at Pet Grooming.

How to NOT Show Love to Your Pets -- Are We Doing It Wrong?

smoochyourpooch.jpg

Conventional wisdom is that our pets love to be cuddled as we gaze adoringly into their eyes, stuffing them full of leftovers from our dinner table. Right? Isn't that what we learned to do from day one? Maybe not so much, according to 5 Ways You Didn't Realize You're Making Your Pet Hate You | Cracked.com.

The article cites the popular children's book, Smooch Your Pooch by Teddy Slater and Arthur Howard, which describes to young children how to show love to a favorite four-legged friend. It's all wrong. Hugging, staring, food-sharing, supporting PETA and even shopping at brick-and-mortar retail pet stores might not always be the best idea.
