Crush Pet Pills Up in an Automatic Pill Grinder

autopillgrinder.jpg

Giving our pets a pill is often a challenge. We have known a dog who meticulously eats around the pill and leaves it in the bowl. Even submerging in peanut butter sometimes doesn't work. And don't even think about giving a pill to the cat.

This handheld Automatic Pill Grinder is just the ticket if you live with a pet (or human) who can't or won't swallow pills. Just grind their tablet-type pills straight in to their food or beverage--problem solved!

PetScoop: FDA Cautions Buyer Beware If Purchasing Pet Drugs Online

petmeds930.jpg

Many of us try to save on costs by skirting our veterinarians and buying discount pet drugs online without a prescription. Some of the internet sites that sell pet drugs represent legitimate, reputable pharmacies (see links below), but not all. Alas, we may be buying drugs for our best pals from unscrupulous businesses operating illegally.

Buying prescription pet meds online without a prescription and even OTC meds may be risky, according to a recent FDA warning. The FDA has found companies that sell unapproved pet drugs and counterfeit pet products, make fraudulent claims, dispense prescription drugs without requiring a prescription, and sell expired drugs.

Is it worth the savings to possibly damage your pet's health and even maybe a life? Here's our solution. Many vets do indeed charge more for drugs than on-line sites, as they are, after all, trying to make a living. But when asked, some will price-match to products at certain legitimate on-line pharmacies. At very least, they often are willing to fax in your prescription to a reputable site.

If you do wish to shop online, try 1-800-PetMeds with free shipping over $39 and PetCareRx who ship free on your orders over $35. They will contact your veterinarian for you.

PetScoop: Remove Household Pet Odors with Charcoal Briquettes

charbriq.jpg

As we batten down the hatches this fall, we may start to notice a pervasive pet smell a little more than when balmy breezes were wafting through our rooms. To absorb pet odors (or any other kind) from the air in your home, Apartment Therapy recommends stashing a few charcoal briquettes around the house:

As for how to distribute them, you can simply lay a few out in a metal tray. Other options: sew pouches for them or use an old sock, then hang them in inconspicuous areas. Line a basket with foil or plastic and lay the briquettes inside. Or simply set them out on a tray on a shelf or side table: the black little pillows actually look kind of cool!

Be sure to stick with the natural briquettes such as Kingsford Original Charcoal Briquets and avoid the mesquite briquettes or ones with easy-light additives.

PetScoop -- Vet Study Concludes All Cats Should Wear Collars

cat_collars_anyone.jpg

Here's a good excuse to start shopping! The New York Times reports the scary stat that "less than 2 percent of cats in animal shelters make it back to their owners, whereas about 15 to 19 percent of dogs are returned, and one reason is that more dogs wear collars."

Does your kitty wear a cat collar? If you answer no, it may be time to rethink that decision, according to the findings of a new study published in The Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association.

Cats were randomly assigned to wear 1 of 3 types of collars: plastic buckle, breakaway plastic buckle safety, and elastic stretch safety. Each cat was fitted with the assigned collar, and a microchip was inserted SC between the scapulae.

The result was that 391 of the 538 (72.7%) cats successfully wore their collars for the entire 6-month study period:

Most cats successfully wore their collars. Because even house cats can become lost, veterinarians should recommend that all cats wear identification collars since they are the most obvious means of identifying an owned pet.

For some cats, collars may frequently come off and become lost; therefore, microchips are an important form of backup identification.

Owners should select a collar that their cat will tolerate and should check it often to ensure a proper fit.

So time to get cracking! There's nice-looking cat collar selections at Amazon, Muttropolis, and if you are into bling, CatsPlay.

Pet Hair Removal -- Consumer Reports Tests Pledge Fabric Sweeper Against Adhesives

petfabricsweeper.jpg

Consumerist reports that their "test-happy kin at Consumer Reports" tested the Pledge Fabric Sweeper for Pet Hair against three different adhesive-based products to see how they stacked up against each other picking up pet fur. The result? All the products did a decent job of lifting up the pet hair.

The downside to the adhesive items is that they require the beleaguered pet owner to constantly remove the the fur-covered sheets, as you probably know yourself. The upside to the Pledge product is that it is easy to use and clean up.

And here's a tip on how to save money on the Pledge. Read our post this past spring on how to reuse the Pledge Fabric Sweeper for Pet Hair rather than tossing it after every use.
