Happy Memorial Day -- Pet Memorial Stones

Sorrow.jpg

Today on Memorial Day we remember the brave, selfless men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military service. Memorial Day also typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, although Mother Nature does not always cooperate.

On Memorial Day, while honoring our past military heroes, we also extend that remembrance to our selfless pets. To express how we feel about them, we can place a Pet Memorial Stone at their burial site.

It's a nice touch to decorate burial sites with a patriotic stick American flag, useful for July 4th celebrations as well.

PetScoop -- Boomers and Childless Spend Most on Their Pets

GroomingCat.jpg

According to Americans spend more on pets than beer or movies | Quartz, here in the U.S. we spend an average of about $500 annually on our pets, equating to 1% of their annual budget.

Overall Americans spent $61.4 billion on their charges, almost twice as much as global spending on movie tickets last year, with heavier outlay in our rural areas.

The most pampered American pets live with Baby Boomers and childless couples, and single pet owners and single parents are more likely to skimp on kitty and doggy spending.

Owners most likely to buy for dogs (say, little booties on Buddy) are ages 55 to 64, and couples without children, a new analysis by the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows. They spend hundreds of dollars more than those in their 20s and 30s.

How Not to Greet a Dog -- And Possibily Avoid a Bite

howtogreetadog.jpg

Many moons ago away from home at a summer evening party, we received a panicked call from our baby sitter that our English Setter had bitten our toddler on the face. (It ended well.)

Roughly half of all children are at some point bitten by a dog, since they don't read the danger signals. Misconceptions abound when it comes to doggy body language even among adults.

This graphic How Not to Greet a Dog shows common body language mistakes people make around dogs, as well as showing the "correct" way to greet an animal.

For more on this fascinating subject, check out How to Greet a Dog and What to Avoid by veterinarian/animal behaviorist Sophia A Yin.

Pet Travel Water Dispensers -- Don't Leave Home Without Them

Pets Travel Water Dispenser.jpg

Hot summer weather is upon us. Today while out and about, we met a beautiful young Golden Retriever who, but for an expensive trip to the emergency vet, almost died of heat stroke over the weekend. Bob had collapsed at the beach after 10 minutes.

Turns out Bob the Golden does not eat or drink when home alone--dogs can be so sensitive. That day, he was then whisked off for a romp on the beach apparently without refreshments.

His near-miss is a welcome reminder to be more tuned in to our pets, their body language and their needs, especially in hot humid summer conditions. A pet who seems happy on the surface may upon closer inspection actually be a bit frenzied.

The solution is to remember to bring along water for pets on outings, no matter how close by. There are travel water dispensers to carry your own water supply and dog travel bowls if you do have a source of water at your destination. A gadget such as this Handi-Drink Dog Water Bottle could make the difference between life and death at worst, not to mention the 3 or 4 figure vet bill.

PetScoop: New Puppy? For Optimum Bone Development, Choose the Right Diet

puppy_food.jpg

Have a puppy? If you do, or plan to down the road, stock up on food targeted for puppies, especially if you choose a large or giant breed puppy. Pet lovers tend to have strong opinions on pet care so it's easy for us to reflexively pooh-pooh feeding advice, especially when we are counting our pennies and have lived with many dogs.

However, new guidelines help us avoid debilitating bone diseases that cause suffering and even cut precious years off our pets' lives. Large and giant breed puppies should be fed a quality puppy formula until the end of their growth period when you transition to adult formula.

Get the scoop at Feeding the Large and Giant Breed Puppy | Dr. Ken Tudor | PetMD and as always, check with your vet.
