Does Your Pet Have Bad Breath?

Since we have a home office, some days I spend more time with my pets than with humans, not always such a bad thing. Nowadays, most co-workers are conscious of their personal hygiene, but I can't say the same about our doggies. Our wild woman, Golden Retriever Molly would never ever let me brush her teeth--don't even think about it. But frankly, she has some "unsightly" plaque and could use a mouthwash. Does your cat's breath smell like cat food? Here is a product that may help: Triple-Pet Plaque Off Fresh Breath

You add a capful to a 24-oz bowl of drinking water. Product claims results within 48 hours. Using a special blend of "human food grade" ingredients (purified water, anthium dioxide, yuccarome, mint oils, sodium benzoate), Triple-Pet Plaque Off Fresh Breath helps eliminate plaque and tartar build-up and odor causing compounds in your dog or cat's digestive system.

Available from Amazon. Ships from and sold by PetFoodDirect. We have not personally tested this product. Check with your vet before giving anything your pet will ingest.

Waterless Bath Pet Brush

waterless%20brush.jpg

Our dogs definitely have different standards of hygiene than we do. It doesn't seem to matter how often they go swimming at the beach or in their kiddie pool, they sometimes just smell after a few hours. Occasionally on walks we will look around and find Molly trying to roll in something on someone's yard--surprisingly, often there is nothing there!

Frequent doggie baths are a lot of work and are not supposed to be particularly good for dogs' coats, so this Lentek Koolatron Ionic Waterless Pet Bath Ultra Brush may come in handy. It silently circulates air to remove odors on your pet. "Silently" is the salient word here, because many dogs (once again, our Molly) are easily spooked by noise. Fresh-smelling ozone flows through this ionic pet brush to neutralize your pet's odor in about 5 minutes. The sturdy bristles of Ionic Pet Brush help you comb out most stubborn tangles while gently "refreshing" your pet with up to 100 trillion super oxygenated molecules every second.

This Waterless Pet Bath Brush shuts off automatically after 5 minutes. It has an easy-to-clean, removable brush plate. Comes with a hanging slot for easy storage in your mudroom, laundry room, shed, etc. and operates on one 9-Volt battery (not included). It has a flashing green "On" indicator LED, which conveniently turns red when the battery is low. One-year warranty.

Pet Loader’s™ Dog Stair

We share our home with two fabulous Golden Retrievers, Molly and Jessie. Molly gets all the press at Super Cool Pets, since she is the more "eccentric" of the two. Jess is an angelic, beautiful, sweet Golden. She has her quirks (no one ever feeds her!), but they are not as exaggerated as Molly's. Molly is "one of those dogs", who is just different.

We use a pet ramp to take our girls on their favorite road trip--the beach. Lately Molly just stands at the end of the ramp, or goes around the side of our SUV. Something about the ramp, which we have been using for years, just doesn't meet with Molly approval anymore. So looking around for alternatives, perhaps these folding steps will do. She seems to love the steps on the boardwalk at the beach.

These folding steps, Pet Loader™, are purportedly wider and more stable than a dog ramp, and do not sag, which may be Molly's issue. They have a more graduated angle and washable carpeting for greater traction. Can hold up to 560 lbs. Pet Loader™ is light-weight and folds down. Easy to carry and store. Fits SUV's, boats, trucks, trailers. Optional wheels available.

Dimensions: 22”wide, 18” long, and 7-1/4” high. Available in 3-, 4- and 5-step models with 16" platforms. Buy at PAWShop

Feeding Assistance--Dinner-Up

4-28-07-dinnerup.jpg

We are blogging a lot about food this month! Everyone's favorite subject, including our pets! Thanks to our fellow Blogpire editor over at Networking Audio Video, we have discovered the Dinner-Up. This product was developed by Ray Dinham, a 57 year-old former engineer with cerebral palsy. His invention consists of "a tray attached to a column which, itself, is fixed to a wall or kitchen cabinet.The tray is then wound up and down the column by turning a handle which includes a clutch device."

This product has the potential to be very very helpful to anyone with a disability that prevents them from bending down to pick up pet food bowls, whether permanent or temporary from, for instance, a hip operation. This could mean the difference between someone sharing their home with a pet, or not.

Sirius Puppy Training DVD

Training%20Video.jpg

Know anyone with a new puppy? Unless we are breeders, most of us don't get a new puppy all that often. The Sirius Puppy Training Video could be a good way for the average pet owner to brush up on their training skills and learn new techniques. Product description:

SIRIUS Puppy Training redefined and revolutionized dog training. Before SIRIUS there were no puppy classes, and virtually no food lures and rewards in training. The SIRIUS methods have been adopted and adapted by most caring dog trainers worldwide. This DVD is written and hosted by veterinarian, animal behaviorist, and author Dr. Ian Dunbar - the creator of off-leash puppy classes, which sparked the revolution for positive, reward-based dog-friendly dog training. Dr. Dunbar is the founder of several dog training organizations, including th Center for Applied Animal Behavior; the Association of Pet Dog Trainers - the largest and most influential worldwide association of professional pet dog trainers; and SIRIUS Puppy Training - the Original Puppy Training School.

Voted "Best Video" (2000, 2001 & 2002) by the Association of Pet Dog Trainers. Available at Amazon.

Relief from Pet Urine Odor

You may have a new kitten or puppy, just moved to a new house or your pet may be sick. For a variety of reasons, sometimes our pets have "accidents". Especially in the case of cats, pet urine smell can be a household problem. Sometimes the accident is obvious, sometimes you can smell it but can't really locate the source. If it is not cleaned up quickly, it will seep into the flooring or furniture, so the the urine smell lingers for a long time. The pet urine odor can be offensive to guests and even interfere with a home sale.

urine%20off.jpg

With this Ultra Violet Lamp, you can easily detect your cat's urine anywhere. Once the accident location has been detected, you then apply Urine-Off to remove the stains and odors your cat left behind. Urine-Off eliminates all types of urine and odor stains and can remove old urine stains. Effective on hardwood, carpet, concrete, tile, fabric and More! Urine Off is safe and easy to use - just spray generously and let it dry. Urine Off must come into contact with ALL of the urine, so if you are working with absorbant surfaces like carpet, furniture and mattresses you must be diligent. This product works by breaking down the chemicals in urine, to eliminate the odor and stain completely.

Requires 4 AA batteries--not included. Available from Amazon

Pet Stress Patch

Pampered%20Dog%20On%20Couch.jpg


Is your pet stressed? Our Golden Retriever, Molly, is a bold huntress (of geckos) and generally a happy girl, but is easily spooked. Pretty easy to tell--her curved-under tail is a sure giveaway of a thunderstorm or a pending grooming session. But some dogs don't have much of a tail. Here is a potential way to be certain how your pet is really feeling.

According to a write-up in WTOPnews.com of a Nikkei Weekly Sunday report Japanese Patch Measures Stress, a patch has been developed by a Japanese company, Medical Life Care Giken, to measure the stress level of dogs and cats by detecting the amount sweat secretion. A round, pin-sized patch is applied to the center pad of the animal's paw and changes color depending on how sweaty the pet is.

Remember mood rings?
