PetScoop -- Canned Food May Benefit Your Pet

canneddog.jpgcatcanned.jpg

Which is better--canned or dry pet food? Some pets may flourish better on a canned "wet" diet, according to Dr. Katy J. Nelson, an emergency veterinarian in Alexandria, Va. In Dog Daily she says that at least five types of dogs particularly benefit from canned or "wet" food:

1. Puppies -- Canned food is easy for them to digest and offers a concentrated source of protein.

2. Small breeds -- They too can have delicate digestive systems and high metabolism.

3. Dogs with food allergies -- Nelson often advises owners with food-allergic dogs to feed them a blend of wet and dry. This makes the food more palatable to the dog and minimizes problems from possible allergens.

4. Dogs with kidney and urinary tract conditions -- These dogs need good hydration, which they can get from the moisture of wet food.

5. Certain older dogs -- Senior dogs often suffer from health issues that are eased by wet foods. Dogs that have had teeth extracted, for example, might have difficulty chewing their kibble.

Save yourself the hassle. Get pet food shipped to your door.

Does your pet get nervous due to separation anxiety, thunderstorm fears, car travel, veterinary visits? Or maybe you have a new puppy or kitten who needs some comforting.

As we all know, music for humans can change the mood and feel of an environment, so you can put this to work for you.

Pet Acoustics music has been specifically designed for the hearing sensitivities of your pet, in frequency, volume and rhythm, to calm and soothe your pet anytime, anywhere. The app is available at Apple iTunes.com

For your home, the Pet Acoustics sound system, My Pet Speaker, will transform your music library into pet-friendly tunes that soothe and relax dogs, cats, horses, as well as the people they love.

The Speaker limits the frequencies and plays a soft bass, so your pets will not be startled or disturbed by the jarring volumes and piercing sounds that instinctively put them on alert.

Dog and Cat Dental Tool -- Tooth Scaler

toothscaler.jpg

February is pet dental health month. Actively brushing your pet's teeth should keep your pet's teeth in good shape. As you have probably figured out for yourself, it's smart to start early in life so your dog or cat gets used to it.

Other tips for pet dental care are feeding dry food and providing crunchy treats and dental chews such as Greenies.

We are admittedly, and probably not correctly, somewhat skeptical of the recent veterinary push towards professional dental work (anesthesia) to rid your pet's teeth of built-up tartar, as they reap a tidy sum for the procedure.

If you have a compliant pooch, a possible alternative is this Double End Pet Dental Tooth Scaler as a remedial measure. Use on dog's or cat's teeth to scrape off tartar, plaque, and bacteria-harboring calculus yourself.

Of course if your pet has red, swollen or bleeding gums, obvious gum erosion or foul breath, consult your veterinarian.

Care for Pets Left Behind by the Rapture -- Eternal Earth-Bound Pets

pet_rapture.jpg

Do you believe your pet has a soul?

Anywhere from 20 million to 40 million people in the melting pot we affectionately call the US of A are devout believers in The Rapture. To refresh your memory, in the off chance you find yourself excluded from this group, Jesus will return to Earth in the Second Coming. The righteous, both dead (what have they been up to in the meantime?) and alive, will ascend to a better place, while the unsaved remain behind on Earth. Hence, the Rapture.

But what will become of all the pets doomed to remain here on Earth, since these 20 to 40 million believe animals do not have souls and hence cannot partake?

Business Week reports that a new service called Eternal Earth-Bound Pets (219 comments on the article at this writing), all confirmed atheists, will step in to provide for the animals left behind by the 'saved'. Required qualifications of the reps: "animal lovers, are moral / ethical with no criminal background, have the ability and desire to rescue your pet and the means to retrieve them and ensure their care for your pet's natural life."

The service is limited to dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, and small caged mammals. For $110.00 they will guarantee that should the Rapture occur within ten (10) years of receipt of payment, one pet per residence will be saved. Each additional pet at your residence will be saved for an additional $15.00 fee.

9Lives Survey -- Most American Cat Owners Are Not Aware of Proper Feline Nutrition

9Lives.jpg

Pet owners try to have their furball's best interests at heart and think they are providing them with nutritious foods. But are some of us unintentionally subjecting our cats to potential harm?

A nationwide survey commissioned by 9Lives Cat Food of US cat parents found that:

  • 94 percent of American cat owners are confident they feed their pets the most nutritious meals possible. However, nearly half (48 percent) admit they've fed their cat table scraps - which do not provide the essential nutrients cats need - on average seven times per month

  • 75 percent believe that the more nutritious the cat food, the more expensive it is

  • 70 percent believe that giving cats milk to drink is a healthy practice, a surprising statistic considering most adult cats are lactose intolerant

  • 23 percent think a purely vegetarian diet is a wholesome choice, when in fact it can be harmful

To receive nutritional advice and information on selecting the right food for your cat with the 9Lives Nutrition Simulator, visit www.9lives.com.
