PetScoop -- New Trend: People Buried with their Pets

slatemem.jpg

With a tax deadline fast approaching, it brings to mind the other certainty of life. Many of us plan to be buried alongside family members. Would that include your pet(s)? People have been buried with their animals throughout history, even prior to the era of Egyptian pharaohs and Roman emperors.

Christian missionaries, who believed that only humans have (are?) souls, discouraged communal burials in order to wean the pagans from their animal rituals and convert them to Christianity. (Note: If you believe your pet does not have a soul, check out Care for Pets Left Behind by the Rapture).

The United Kingdom is a nation of animal lovers with a strong historic background in pagansim. The UK trend is to include pets in their burial plans, according to an article in CNN Pets and people buried together.

These two personalized Pet Memorials make attractive and dignified markers. They are available in different sizes in Marble or Vermont Slate.

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.

petacousiphapp.jpgpetacousiphapp2.jpg

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

MyPetSpeaker_Front.jpg

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.
