National Pet Obesity Awareness Day -- How Many Calories are in Pet Food?

obesecatdog.jpg

The Association for Pet Obesity Prevention has declared today Wednesday, October 14 National Pet Obesity Awareness Day. Sensing a lecture? Not to worry -- we are not getting on our high horse here, since we all know first-hand how hard it is to look into those beautiful beseeching eyes and deny them a treat.

That said, according to the Association's research, an estimated 50% of dogs and cats in the United States are overweight or obese and an estimated 14% of US dogs and cats are actually obese. Excess body weight, health problems, pet mortality and vet bills go hand-in-hand.

So if you are curious, at their site you can find your pet's ideal weight range, pet caloric needs, and the caloric content of many cat and dog foods, dry, canned and pouch.

Rubberwood Freestanding Pet Gate -- Temporary Pet Confinement

freestandinggate.jpg

Keep your pet from running away while you hand out treats on Halloween night. Try blocking the entrance or confining your pet with a temporary Rubberwood Freestanding Pet Gate.

As the busy holiday season approaches, a freestanding pet gate is essential equipment for the busy pet owner. Holidays bring parties, company and overnight visitors. Our pets don't like change and often get nervous, confused and spook a bit when things are different around the house. They hound your company for food and can be awkwardly underfoot.

No installation is needed at all -- you can just move the portable gate around. Since the width is adjustable, the gate easily blocks off wide entrances, doorways, and rooms, effectively confining pets, At only 20 inches high, it's easy to step over. It has a wide base to keep it from tipping over and rubber feet to protect your floors from scratches. When life returns to normal, just fold up for storing.
