In Ground Cat Fence

containment%20cat.jpg

These in-ground containment systems aren't for everyone, but at Super Cool Pets we really like them. It is good for all our pets to be outdoors and enjoy their natural habitat. These fences can allow your pets outside without the worry of them running away. We basically use ours only when we are home, but that is a decision that must be based on each individual situation.

If the ground isn't frozen where you are, or if it's summertime, you could put in a PetSafe In-ground Cat Fence to let your kitty get some outdoors time and you some peace of mind. The fence will keep your cat safely in your yard. Your cat wears a small waterproof receiver collar with a stretch section for safety. You can train your cat, or cats (they all need the collar) over the course of a few weeks, working a few minutes a day.

Unforeseen Pet Bills--How Will You Pay?

sick_dog.jpg

Now that we have all run up our credit cards, back to reality!

One of Super Cool Pets' favorite reads is Dollittler, written by a savvy Miami vet. She offers very valuable advice for any pet lover in Planning for the [almost] inevitable: funding your next veterinary nightmare

Pet owners beware: There will come a time when your vet (or, God forbid, a specialist) will ask you to pay more than you’d rather fork over for the treatment of one of your pet’s maladies. Whether it’s an unforeseen illness (after eating out of the garbage, let’s say), devastating injury (the dreaded hit-by-car) or a chronic issue finally rearing its ugly head (yep, it’s finally time for that hip replacement), the price is likely to be steep.

On the one hand, it’s a good thing that vet medicine has so much to offer that the price of technology is finally showing up on your vet invoices. On the other hand, how will you pay for them?

It’s this vet’s opinion that everyone needs a plan if they want to play their role of responsible pet owner to the hilt. Any less might leave you feeling the guilt forevermore. And if you think I speak self-servingly, recall that even vets have vet bills. Tally ‘em up and I’ll wager mine beat most of yours. (But that’s mostly just because vets are in a position to give themselves away—that counts as vet bills, right?)

VNN (the Veterinary News Network) has graciously agreed to grant me the privilege of using their informative three-minute video on this subject as a worthy talking point. Here it is (for your viewing pleasure).

This video is not an infomercial (as you might expect), is brief and worth watching. If you do choose insurance, here is a useful site: QuickCare Pet Insurance Programs

Paw Deicer

paw%20deicer%2012%2015.jpg

It really tugs at the heartstrings to see our pets in from playing with little iceballs caught between their toes. Just spray this Paw Deicer to protect against all those ice balls and salt spray. This is a veterinarian-approved, nontoxic, all-natural blend of purcellin oil, sunflower oil, and lanolin. Also can be applied to the legs and bellies. Lasts about 45 minutes.

Paw Deicer is new at Orvis.

Here are useful Pet Care Cold Weather Reminders from the ASPCA.

Paw Protector Wax

Say goodbye to sore cracked paws forever!

paw%20wax%2012%2021.jpg

Not all pets will wear boots, so another option is to apply some Paw Protector Wax to protect your pet's paws in the winter against burning from salt, chemicals, and in the summer, sand, sand burn, and hot pavement. 100% natural wax does not stain your carpets. Just smooth a thin coat on paw pads and between the toes before a jaunt outdoors.
