Make a Lasting Memorial to Your Pet

Memorial Day is coming up this Monday. If you have been unfortunate enough to have lost a pet, you can make a lasting memorial to him or her in a Buddhist-type altar, a Memoria Areca.

Designed for your living room mantle or a dressing table, the box has compartments for an urn as well as a glass display case to display special mementos, such as a collar, leashes, toys, apparel. A picture frame is built into the lid for your favorite photograph. The pet altar comes in two contemporary designs.

Or...you can turn your pet's remains into a Synthetic Diamond, which you can have set into a ring or pendant.

Other products in this vein are urns that look like perfume containers and flower arrangements that incorporate the pet's fur. These fit conveniently into the glass case of the memorial altar.

Beautiful mossed topiary frames for your yard. The sectional frames come packed with sphagnum moss and can be used year round with little or no maintenance. Can be planted with your favorite summer blooms or wrapped with holiday lights for a festive look.

They are easy to grow - just poke a hole in the dampened moss and put in your favorite plant or enjoy them as they are. Character eyes are standard on all forms and bring the topiary to life. Size: approx. 35" x 49" x 12"

Garden Topiary Frames are also available as bare frames for you to plant and grow yourself.

Golden Retriever Garden Topiary Frame

The sectional frames can be placed over a shrub (such as boxwood) that is rooted in the ground and allowed to grow up into the form. You then simply trim the plant to the shape of the form as it grows.

Or, you can fill the bottom of the frame with sphagnum moss and plant a climbing vine into the moss. Train the plant to grow into the upper portion of the frame and you'll have a low maintenance, portable planted topiary form.

Mossed Garden Topiaries are available in many different dog breeds, basset, cocker spaniel, chihauhua, jack russell terrier, dachsund, doberman, golden retriever, rottie, scottie and more.

Health Concerns over Pet Sterilization

dog_and_cat.JPG

A serious downside to pet sterilization is cropping up. There may be future health consequences for your pet, as discussed in this article from MSNBC:

Studies have found that spayed or neutered dogs are at increased risks for problems including certain cancers, thyroid disorder, incontinence and some of the same behavior issues that the surgeries are said to prevent....

...Margaret V. Root Kustritz, a veterinary reproduction specialist at the University of Minnesota, reviewed 200 studies and found that while spay/neuter surgery has benefits, it is also linked to increases in the incidence of certain diseases and conditions such as bone cancer, heart tumors, hypothyroidism and canine cruciate ligament (CCL) injuries, as well as prostate cancer in male dogs and urinary incontinence in females. The extent of the risk can depend on the problem, as well as the size and sex of the dog, and the age the surgery is performed.

The risk of a type of cardiac tumor called hemangiosarcoma is five times higher in spayed female dogs than unspayed females, noted Kustritz. And neutered males have 2.4 times the risk of unneutered males. The risk was also higher for osteosarcoma (bone cancer): Dogs spayed or neutered before age 1 were up to two times as likely to develop the disease than those that hadn't been altered.

Cats seem to fare better:

The main risk they face from sterilization is that they can become sedentary and obese, according to Kustritz's review of studies. As a result, vets say sterilizing cats before 6 months of age is appropriate.

Kitchen Scraps for Your Pet -- What's Good & What's Not

db_Golden_Retriever_Puppies1.jpg

When we are in the kitchen whomping up some vittles, it is so hard to resist those cute faces. No one ever feeds them and all they want is a little tidbit! But are you sure those scraps you throw to them won't be harmful?

Check out this MSNBC article, 'People foods that can kill your pet' where you can find a list of bad and good foods for your pet.

If you do make a mistake, or your pet does, here's what to do in case of emergency. Save or bookmark this info:

Despite all the precautions you take to keep your pet pals safe, accidents do happen. That's why the ASPCA, Humane Society and animal advocates advise pet owners to keep the telephone numbers of their local veterinarian and the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center -- (888) 426-4435 -- in a prominent location.

Common signs of poisoning include muscle tremors or seizures; vomiting and diarrhea; drooling; redness of skin, ears and eyes; and swelling and bleeding.

If you suspect your pet has consumed, inhaled or come in contact with a toxic substance, stay calm and call for help immediately. If you see your pet consuming anything you think might be toxic, seek emergency help immediately even if she or he is not exhibiting any symptoms.

And while we are on the subject, here are two articles that may help someday:
