PetScoop -- Pooper Scooper Services Growing in Popularity

dogcleanup.png

Need a new career? Or tired of cleaning up after your pet in the yard? A new type of pet service growing in popularity is the pooper scooper business.

One such is DoodyCalls, a nationwide pet waste removal service for homeowners and communities. "Doody is our duty, and we take our job seriously--with all our services 100% guaranteed. Our friendly, professional technicians pick up where your dog left off, so you don't have to. We're guessing you have much better things to do with your time!"

Today's Sunday New York Times has the scoop:

Most local pooper-scooper laws deal with public spaces, not private property. But in suburbs of New York and elsewhere, mom and pop operators with a sense of humor (the companies have names like Poop Patrol and ScooperDude and slogans like "We're No. 1 in the No. 2 business"), have found a market: the super-busy, families with children who play in the yard and homeowner associations with common greenspace or dog runs.

To increase their marketability, many of the companies cast themselves as environmental guardians, emphasizing the dangers of dog waste, which can carry bacteria and parasites that cause disease and contaminate waterways.

The scoopers, who also handle cat, goose and deer waste, typically place it in plastic bags and, depending on local ordinances, dump it in the homeowner's trash or drop it off at local landfills or incinerators. Their growing popularity parallels that of styling boutiques and travel services that have sprung up to help Americans spend about $45 billion on their pets each year.

Kurgo Auto Zip Line Dog Safety Harness

kurgoautozip.jpg

We all know it is safer not to let our pets roam free in the back seat on car rides, but many dogs chafe at being tightly constrained in a harness.

If this describes your dog, the Kurgo Auto Zip-Line lets your dogs pace from left to right in the back seat, but keeps them restrained and safer during sudden stops.

The line is basically nylon webbing that attaches between the two rear passenger side handles and is easy to install in any car or SUV. It's similar to the earlier featured Kurgo K9 Truck Tether which secures your dog directly behind a pickup truck cab.

The Kurgo dog harness and leash (sold separately) work in conjunction with the Auto Zip Line to go easily from pavement to vehicle.

In all sizes, S to XL Kurgo Auto Zip Line

PetScoop: Palladia Receives FDA Approval as First Drug to Treat Cancer in Dogs

Teal Paws Cure Dog T-Shirt
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the first drug developed specifically for the treatment of cancer in dogs. Palladia, manufactured by Pfizer Animal Health Inc, is targeted at canine cutaneous mast cell tumors, responsible for about 1 of 5 cases of canine skin tumors.

This is a significant development. Up until now, all cancer drugs used in veterinary medicine originally were developed for use in humans and are not approved for use in animals. Reuters has the scoop:

Treatment with new cancer drugs for humans tends to cost tens of thousands of dollars per patient, and the majority of pet owners do not have health insurance for their dogs.


Pet Health Insurance For Cats & Dogs
Perhaps another reason to consider Health Insurance For Pets.

Thunderstorms, Fireworks, Vet Visits -- 3 Remedies to Reduce Anxiety and Calm Your Pet

funny pictures of cats with captions

Does your pet suffer from anxiety? Thunderstorm season is here and the July 4th fireworks marathon approaches, not to mention those terrifying vet visits. Our dogs tremble, pant, pace and even become destructive. Our cats shake, meow strangely, and become skittish.

Pet anxiety is serious, especially for those who suffer continually. Your pet may flee the scene in terror and be hit by a car, get lost or stolen. S/he may jump through a glass window, scratch the walls or rip apart your furniture.

So, how to help your pet lose the terror?

Distraction -- Calming music, "white noise" such as fans or A/C, TV, radio to drown out the scary sounds.

Synthetic Pheromones -- These reduce or even prevent stress-related behavior if your pet's anxiety is mild to moderate.

For your cat, Feliway Plug-In Diffuser is recommended or spritz some Feliway Spray on his/her bedding and favorite hangouts. Likewise, for your dog, apply some D.A.P. Dog Appeasing Pheromone Spray liberally in the cage and if in an enclosed area plug in a D.A.P. Dog Appeasing Pheromone Electric Diffuser.

We are following up after trying D.A.P. Dog Appeasing Pheromone, which worked well with our storm-phobic Golden as long as she stays put in one spot. Since she paces, the DAP Collar is the best choice as it goes where she goes.

Anti-Anxiety Meds -- Where a lot of pets live, thunderstorms or scary sounds can happen daily. If your pet experiences the misery of anxiety on a constant or extreme basis, your vet may prescribe Anxiety Relief medications.
