Acetominophen in Pet Food

hungrycat.gif

Super Cool Pets is not a pet health blog, nor an advice column, but we would be remiss not to bring your attention to the latest pet food crisis. We all are busy and if you missed this, please read Tylenol Toxicity via Pet Foods--Say It Ain't So! from one of our fascinating reads Dolittler, a blog written by a kindly Miami vet. Great spot, by the way, to learn "how vets think."

Now that acetominophen has shown up in pet foods (in whopping doses), you should know what this common household toxin can do to your pets. Most of you keep this drug around—it’s the ubiquitous Tylenol we trust so well to relieve our fevers and headaches with a minimum of side effects. But it’s not so safe for pets.

Cats are especially susceptible to the dangers of Tylenol. Because they lack the enzymes required to break it down, it has a way of binding to their hemoglobin (that near and dear protein that we all rely on to carry oxygen around our body), thereby limiting it’s ability to do its job properly. So cats die—quickly.

Drinkwell Pet Fountain Deluxe

Especially in summer, it is important that pets get enough water. Cats especially don't always drink as much water as they should. Lots of times they can be found on the counter, trying to drink from the faucet. The Drinkwell Pet Fountain provides fresh running water for your cats and dogs. There is plenty here for multiple-pett households.

The kit includes:

* One Drinkwell Fountain

Cat Genie-Self Washing, Self Flushing Cat Box

genie.jpg

Popular item these days is the Cat Genie-Self Washing, Self Flushing Cat Box. Mess free, odor free. Your cat can still dig and cover, but you never have to buy or deal with cat litter again. Touch a button or pre-set the Genie to start the flushing. It uses permanent washable granules that never need changing.

The Cat Genie is not cheap, but considering that it eliminates the need for litter forever, a worthwhile investment.

Liquids drain through the granules and solid waste gets scooped and liquefied, then both are flushed with fresh water down the drain. Touch a button or pre-set the timer to start the wash cycle. Using water and veterinarian-approved SaniSolution, the unit scours and sanitizes the granules and cat-box interior to eliminate germs and odors. Its built-in dryer completes the cycle by blowing hot air over the granules to dry them. The unit acts like a cat box, washes and dries like an appliance, and flushes waste out of the home like a toilet.

Ideal for homes with two to three cats over six months old, the cat box sets up easily and maintains itself. Simply establish a one-time DIY connection to a cold-water supply line from a sink, toilet, or laundry; place the drain hose over a toilet rim or into a laundry drain; then plug the unit in.

Dimensions: 24" by 19" by 21". 2-year limited warranty.

Purchase from Amazon, SkyMall or SmartHome.

Pampered Pets

pampereddog.jpg

Fascinating discussion of animal behvior and human-animal interaction for all of us dog and cat lovers in Newsweek--A Pampered Pet Nation. Downloadable, so read at your leisure, but read it you must.

This year we’ll shell out more than $40 billion to keep our furry friends fed, adorned, amused and healthy—the latter a huge growth category, with more and more owners paying top dollar for elaborate medical treatments to forestall that inevitable last visit to the vet. By the end of the decade, we’ll be spending $50 billion on pet products, according to the APPMA. Walk the aisles of Petco or PetSmart, past the Hawaiian shirts and sunglasses for your dog and the $140 Catnip Chaise Lounge for your cat, and you’ll discover just how well-trained we Americans have become. “I don’t know who’s been domesticated: the animals, or the humans?” says Jeff Corwin, Animal Planet’s globetrotting wildlife biologist....

But is all this coddling for our pets, or is it for us? A growing number of animal behaviorists, researchers and trainers think we’ve gone off the deep end, anthropomorphizing and infantilizing our pets to the point that we’ve forgotten an essential biological truth: at the level of basic instinct, Tabby is a wildcat and Fido is a wolf.

Adirondack chairs are so attractive and durable--no wonder they have been so popular for the last century! Plus which, they scream "summer" "vacation" "relaxation". You just want to sit down and have an ice tea or glass of Sangria. Love this handsome Adirondack Pet Chair for your dog or cat to curl up in outdoors on these sleepy summer days.

Made of sturdy solid wood with the fanned back, the slatted seat, and covered with a weather-resistant clear finish. The removable foam-filled pad has a green cotton-poly cover that is water/stain/odor/mildew-resistant, also removable and washable. Chair can be personalized (etched) up to 15 letters.
