GLC 1000 -- Vet-Recommended Targeted Joint Care for Dogs

glc1000.JPG

Our dogs rely on us to keep them healthy, happy and fit. If you are noticing any discomfort and tenderness after normal everyday activity, reduced activity levels and maybe a ho-hum interest in playtime, your dog may need some joint care. Reluctance and hesitation to run, jump, walk, sit, or navigate flights of stairs or hills are pretty clear-cut manifestations of a dog in pain.

Our Super Cool Pets veterinarian and many others recommend GLC 1000 - 180 Caps for older and less mobile dogs of all breeds, shapes and sizes. Its formula is a composition of all four spectrum glucosamines to help maintain cartilage and hydration. Also available as GLC 1000 Powder to control the dose. When in doubt, ask for your vet's opinion.

Running With Your Dog -- Healthy and Safe Tips

MatthewMcConaugheyJoggingDog.jpg

Many of us like to exercise with our dogs. We dug up some timely Safety tips for running with your dog | Health & Fitness Blog | Projo.com from Pamela Reinsel Cotter (via Heidi Ganahl, CEO and founder of Camp Bow Wow).

It's always recommended to bring a water supply along when exercising or for any outing with your pets -- these Handi-Drink Portable Water Bottles work well. It is not our custom here at SCP to refer to dogs as "Fido", but that aside, a summary:


Start slow - If Fido has never been out for a run with you, don't expect him to be up for a marathon.

Be mindful of the weather - Dogs can overheat very quickly and cause heat stroke.

Wear proper accessories - If running in the dark, be sure that you and Fido accessorize with some reflective gear so that you are visible to traffic.

Watch out for Fido's feet - Pavement and asphalt gets incredibly hot on summer days and can quickly burn your pup's feet. Gravel can be dangerous as well.

Hydrate - Make sure Fido has had a chance to drink water and hydrate before you take him out on a run.

Keep a watchful eye
- Dogs are people pleasers and if you want to keep running, dogs will often work to keep up even if they may be in pain.

Lather up - Believe it or not, dogs are susceptible to sunburns. If you're running on a sunny day, be sure to apply sunscreen to both yourself and Fido if your dog has shorter hair or are a lighter color.

Eating before or after running - Make sure that your dog does not eat one hour before or after running. Some dogs are susceptible to bloat and eating too close to exercising can be extremely dangerous.

Poison Ivy or Oak Touched Your Pet's Coat? How to Clean It Off and Remain Rash-Free

poison_ivy.jpg

Our dogs and cats are generally not allergic to poison ivy, sumac or oak like their human guardians, but they sure can transmit the toxic plant oil sticking to their fur to any humans who pat and hug them afterwards.

The offending urushiol oil on these plants is very hardy and persistent. Even if someone doesn't get anywhere near the plants, contact with the oil on any other surface can still cause the miserable blisters and rashes on human skin.

If you have ANY reason to suspect your pet's coat has touched poison ivy, sumac or oak, unless you want to scratch and suffer for a week or two, don't mess around. Tips from Getting Rid Of Poison Ivy, Oak, and Sumac on Pets| About.com Veterinary Medicine:

Getting Rid of Urushiol Oils on Your Pets
A bath is in order. Here are some tips to make the pet bathing as effective as possible for removing this stubborn plant oil.
  • Wear rubber gloves.
  • Use a barrier cream, such as a lotion containing bentoquatum, on your arms and skin not protected by gloves. Ref: CDC prevention tips
  • Use copious amounts of cool water, for a long period of time.
  • Use a "degreasing" soap, such as Dawn dishwashing detergent, to remove the oils from your pet's coat.

Any soap that effectively cuts oil such as Burt's Bees Poison Ivy Soap should be effective on your skin and their coat.

Survey Says: Golden Retrievers Attract Both Men and Women to Possible Mates -- Does Your Pet Affect Your Social Life?

dalmatians_park.jpg

In the fantastic Disney movie 101 Dalmatians the dogs actually brought the couple together. Roger Radcliffe's enterprising dalmatian Pongo decided to find a wife for Roger and a mate for himself and arranged a meeting in the park with a woman named Anita and her female dalmatian, Perdita.

If you are single and have issues with your social life, your dog's breed may be a factor. The pet social network Klooff surveyed 1,000 people to find out the top 5 breeds that make single men and women more desirable to date. Check out the gallery at Dog breeds that will get you a date (or not) | Boston.com to find out which breeds can help (and hurt) you on the dating scene.

Epi-Pet Sun Protector Sunscreen Spray Helps Protect Dogs from Sunburn

summerdog.jpg

epipetsunscreen.jpg

Now that we are in the dog days of summer, could your pet possibly get a sunburn? We all slather on the lotion, but many of our pets are also subjected to the strong sun.

Basically any dog with shaved, short and/or thin hair, white and light hair, white and pink skin should be protected with Epi-Pet Sun Protector Sunscreen Spray. It is the only F.D.A. compliant sunscreen for dogs and horses and is waterproof, but not greasy, with a nice vanilla scent.

It should also be considered for dogs who go boating, swimming and hanging out at the beach or pool, at the dog park, and other dogs who spent a lot of time in the sun.

If your pet has allergic and inflamed skin, please check with your veterinarian. This product should NOT be used on cats.
